Cameron: Toulouse a reminder Pesach search for freedom not over

The Prime Minister has sent his wishes to British Jews for a "very happy and peaceful Pesach".

David Cameron, speaking just over a fortnight after an Islamist gunman murdered three children and a rabbi outside the Ozar Hatorah Jewish School in France, noted that the festival marked the "release from slavery and the liberation of a people from tyranny".

He added: "The horrific attack in Toulouse has shown that sadly the search for freedom from fear is not yet over.

"I join with you in hoping that the coming year will bring about security and a lasting peace for Israel and the wider region," he said. "This government remains firmly committed to supporting you in that goal."
