The siege of the cafe in Sydney is now over, with tragic loss of life.
We mourn with the families and loved ones of the victims.
I’ve been overwhelmed by the messages of solidarity and support from Australia’s many friends in Israel.
Coming from a country than knows only too well the pain and trauma of such incidents, these condolences are heartfelt and appreciated.
