The World Jewish Congress is condemning the attack on a crowd outside a London mosque, saying all people must “stand together to defend the critical values of tolerance and freedom that make our society strong.”

WJC President Ronald Lauder said in a statement Monday that the organization stands together with the people of London “in confronting another horrible act of terror.”

He says “I condemn the abhorrent and vicious attack carried out against innocent people gathered to worship during the holy month of Ramadan.”
