To any and all would-be terrorists or extremists, who might have been seduced by fallible religious rhetoric and ideology into plotting any terror attack during this High Holy week or subsequently, I encourage and I implore you to stand-down and to abandon any and all such plans.
Terror can never triumph over good and innocence. But terror, as it has proved from time to time, inevitably creates a living hell for the families, friends, associates and nationalities of terrorists. Terror is perhaps the most selfish of all actions that fails to consider the innocence of children and adult victims.
So, once again, I beseech any and all troubled souls, who have been confused into considering terror against innocents, to stand down and to abandon any plans to violence and mayhem. Instead, I pray that any such marginalized individuals seek atonement and forgiveness for all transgressions.
