Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal on Tuesday called for terrorists to be annihilated following the murderous Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue in which five people were killed.

“Our hearts and prayers are with the victims and their families after this evil attack on a place of worship,” Jindal wrote on Twitter. “An attack on a synagogue shows that there are no bounds for terrorists. These are people depraved of any humanity in their hearts, and they must not only be stopped, they must be exterminated.”

The victims of Tuesday morning’s attack included four Jewish worshipers, three of whom were U.S. citizens and a Druze Israeli security guard. The terrorists stormed the synagogue in the neighborhood of Har Nof with meat cleavers, axes, knives and a pistol. They injured another six people before being shot by security guards.

Jindal added, “Unfortunately, Israel is no stranger to these types of attacks.¬†That’s why we must always stand with our close friend and ally, condemn the act of terror and defend their right to defend themselves.”
