US Ambassador David Friedman and his predecessor Dan Shapiro expressed deep condolences to the family of Ari Fuld, 45 a US citizen, who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist at a Gush Etzion mall Monday. Friedman tweeted: Ari Fuld was a passionate defender of Israel and an American patriot. He represented the best of both countries. Former ambassador Shapiro wrote in his Twitter: The attack was an outrageous act of terrorism which should be loudly condemned by all.
