Dear H.E Adel Al Jubeir:

It has been a while since we last spoke. I hope you are doing well.

We are saddened to hear of the news of the terror attacks in Jeddah, Qatif, and Medina, Saudi Arabia on July 5. On behalf of the American Jewish Congress (AJCongress), we extend our condolences to the families of all those killed and injured in these attacks.

As President and Vice President of the AJCongress, we are firmly committed to U.S.-Saudi relations, and the on going efforts between our two countries to address radical extremism and incitement to violence. Given the challenges we face today, especially from the recent wave of terrorist attacks across the globe, we appreciate the advancement of these special relations and honor that they have been strengthened greatly under His Majesty King Salman.

As the Kingdom mourns these attacks, we stand with you in solidarity. These attacks are an attack on all of us.

Most sincerely,

Jack Rosen
President, American Jewish Congress

Munr Kazmir
Vice President, American Jewish Congress
