A Reprehensible Act of Terror

We join all of America in condemning in the strongest possible terms the shocking massacre of nine African Americans by a white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina. As we continue to wage war against the forces of terror abroad, this terrible shooting in a house of worship reminds us of the very real danger of homegrown terrorism emanating from local White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis.

We express our deepest sympathies to the families of the nine victims and the people of Charleston at this most difficult time.
