ATTACKS ON GAZA ARE WAR CRIMES, NAZI LIKE REGIME IN ISRAEL

The Ramadhan Foundation
strongly condemns the air strikes on Gaza by Israeli war planes, as
there can be no justification for terrorism equally there can be no justification for this collective punishment of
innocent children, women and people of Gaza. These attacks are war crimes
according to international law and its time for the international
community to take action. Their
continued support and permission for Israel just leads to more
resentment and realisation that there is one law for the West and
another for Muslims.
We are saddened that
once again the British Government has justified the attacks and more or
less given Israel permission to carry on, clearly now is the time for
the UK to stand for the sanctity of human life. Biased one sided statements will
alienate British Muslims further and do nothing to encourage confidence
in this country.
Mr. Mohammed Shafiq,
Director of the Foundation comments:
“It is now clear that the Israeli attacks are war crimes and its time
for the unmoral and Nazi like regime in Israel to be held
responsible. How can they
justify killing hundreds of innocent people in this disgusting way.
We stand with the
Palestinian people in Gaza during these difficult and dark days, their
struggle against these war crimes will not end until their lives are as
sacred as Western lives.
I am however
disappointed by the biased statement issued by the FCO, once again they
give Israel the right to break international law and kill innocent
people, where is the justness that this discredited Government promised
on foreign policy.
It is time for real
