Statement by the President
Terrorist Bombing in Tel Aviv

I condemn in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist attack in Tel Aviv this Sabbath evening.  There is no justification for senseless attacks against innocent civilians.  This illustrates the urgent need for an immediate, unconditional cessation of violence.  I call upon Chairman Arafat to condemn this act and to call for an immediate cease fire.  My deepest condolences and those of the American people go out to the victims and their families.
