    TEL AVIV, Israel, June 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Leonid Nevzlin today
issued the following statement in response to the shooting at the United
States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

    "Yesterday's shooting at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is a
terrible reminder that hatred and violence still exist and must be replaced by
tolerance and peace. It is a tragedy that this act occurred at a place devoted
to understanding and reconciliation. My hearts and prayers go out to all who
were affected, particularly to the family of Stephen Johns, who gave his life
protecting innocent people who were at the Museum to learn and remember.  I
will personally be reaching out to the family of Mr. Johns to offer assistance
during this difficult time.  On behalf of the Board of Governors, staff and
friends of the Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel Aviv, I
express my sincere condolences to the American people."
