“This document, like earlier statements by the leaders of the Republic of Moldova, gives a very clear signal in favor of our choice as a state. The Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova welcomes the adoption of this Declaration. We choose to be on the side of peace, justice and help for our fellow people who have been facing with a huge threat. It is not only the terrorist group HAMAS, officially recognized as outlawed in Moldova since 2019, but also its supporters, unfortunately. We are currently facing manifestations of global terrorism. This is a very serious risk, which, together with widespread disinformation and propaganda of violence, can only be overcome if all democratic states in the world unite their forces. We have been in support of Israel from the first minutes of this bloody and unjust war. Dozens of articles and comments in the national and international press, meetings in all religious and secular organizations on both banks of the Dniester, fundraising campaigns for victims, constant communication with officials of Moldova and Israel on this topic. We believe that only in solidarity and mutual support will we get through this extremely difficult stage of our history,” noted the President of the Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova, Alexander Bilinkis.
