Phoenix, Arizona: August 17, 2017 Arizona Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate, Deedra Abboud released the following statement in response to the terror attack that took place in Barcelona, Spain on August 17, 2017.

“I am shocked and saddened to hear about the horrific terror attacks in Barcelona today. No matter the grievance, there can never be justification for murder of innocents. Terrorist attacks like those in Nice, London, Charlottesville and now Barcelona, are symptoms of a much larger crisis, both international and domestic. Radicalization, in all its forms, is a cancer that threatens the very fiber of everything we hold dear. We can and must demand better diplomacy, both internationally and from our own elected leaders, so we can stem the tide of violence. Our hearts go out to the victims.”
