ADL Statement in Response to Shootings at Seattle Jewish Federation
New York, NY, July 28, 2006 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today issued the following statement in response to the shooting attack at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle:
The shooting attack at the Seattle Jewish Federation was a terrible tragedy and points up the need for security awareness, especially at a time when there is a crisis in the Middle East, with Israel as a focal point. However, the Jewish community in Seattle was not advised of any specific threat from law enforcement.
We applaud the Seattle Police Department for their quick response and apprehension of the alleged shooter.
The Anti-Defamation League, a leader in security awareness for synagogues and Jewish institutions, provides ongoing guidance and consultation to communities around the country and has an active presence in Seattle.
