Muslim Brotherhood Statement on the Recent Israeli Crimes
|Saturday, June 10,2006 00:00|
Amid a state of Arab weakness, international silence, and American connivance; the [Israeli] crimes continue against the Palestinian people who stand restive in defense of its land and rights.
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) assassinated Gamal Abu Samahdana, the Palestinian Interior ministry official along with three others in an air raid in Gaza strip.
Yesterday, the occupation forces committed a new massacre by indiscriminately targeting a group of civilians including women and children, who were in a picnic in a Gaza beach, while another air raid targeted a civilian car in Bait Lahia and a third one north of Gaza.
This unprovoked criminal act, which was fully backed by Washington, must be countered with the strongest condemnation and deterrence and a swift action by all official and popular forces to stop such horrific crimes on innocent civilians
As the Israeli Occupation Forces continue its crimes, amid Palestinian steadfastness, there are attempts to circumvent the will of the of the Palestinian people in quest of wasting what is left of their rights as well as driving a wedge among Palestinians themselves.
The Muslim Brotherhood reiterates the constants of the Palestinian issue, foremost among which is that no inch of Palestinian land be abandoned. Given that Palestine embraces a great part of the Muslims’ Holy Land; it is not an issue of the Palestinians alone, but it is also an issue for all Arabs and Muslims. . . offering required sacrifices and supporting the Palestinian people materially and morally . . .
The Arab and Muslim governments have to open doors for the people in their countries to do their duty toward their Palestinian brethren who are ready to offer all sacrifices out of belief that the sacrifices and martyrdom is the price to be paid for the liberation of all the Holy Land and restoration of rights.
