Our Thoughts and prayers go to the Barcelona terrorist’s victims
Elias Bejjani/August 17/17
Our Thoughts, hearts, sympathies, support are with the Barcelona terrorist’s victims.
Our prayers go to the victims who lost their lives, to the injured and to their families and friends.
This barbaric and savage new terrorist attack is strongly condemned by all means.
Terrorism is a deadly and devastating evil cancer that needs to be totally and globally eradicated as soon as possible and by all worldwide means. All those, individuals, organisations and countries who promote, finance, adopt, use and advocate for terrorism and terrorists must be charged and put on trial no matter who they are.
May Almighty God Bless the souls of the Barcelona innocent victims and with His Fatherly love safeguard the injured and lead them with His care to a quick recovery.
