# Aleph's comment on the global situation over the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11

The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., on September 11 shocked the world. We express our deep condolences to the numerous victims and pray their souls rest in peace.

Aleph opposes any violence including the terrorist attacks of September 11. Aleph also feels very concerned that the attacks on Afghanistan, which were initiated by the allied forces lead by the USA, might result in a vicious circle of violence. We pray the fundamental problems behind the violence are settled and as a result the world becomes truly peaceful.
