WASHINGTON – Concerning the terrorist attack Thursday in Barcelona, Spain, which killed 13 people and injured more than 100, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher released the following statement:

Barcelona is one of the great cosmopolitan cities of the world. Islamist monsters yesterday, in yet another senseless act by enemies of Western civilization, attacked the city’s wonderful people and happy atmosphere. This dark force will not succeed in suppressing the love of freedom held by the people of Spain. My condolences go out to all the families of the victims. I feel a special link to Barcelona, having recently visited it charming environs last May. We must not allow our strength and resolve to wane out of fear of future attacks.

Rohrabacher chairs the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, and Emerging Threats.
