THE MUSLIM FORUM OF ALBANIA
The Muslim Forum of Albania denounces the terrorist attack of the Israeli commandos
The Muslim Forum of Albania has learned with great pain and outrage the terrorist attack by Israeli commandos on a humanitarian flotilla full of volunteers from 33 United Nations member countries which on the evening of May 31, 2010, was carrying humanitarian and reconstruction aid to the oppressed people of the Gaza Strip.
During this unprecedented attack in the civilized world, about 19 humanitarian activists have been killed and more than 30 others wounded, turning this humanitarian initiative into a tragedy, not only for the members of this flotilla but for all those who were hoping for a peaceful resolution and an end to the Israeli embargo of the Palestinian people of Gaza.
The Muslim Forum of Albania forcefully condemns this barbaric act and asks of the Israeli authorities a full and transparent investigation of this event and that those responsible be held accountable.
The MFA salutes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Albania’s declaration which considers this attack as unjustified and also unites with the protest of the international community, the United Nations, and the European Union.
We believe that such acts which have become common from the Israeli side each time there are efforts for peace talks, prove that the state of Israel has not been and is not serious about a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the Middle East.
The MFA believes that a rigorous stand from the United Nations and other international organizations regarding this event, will guarantee that international law is functional and not held hostage by a group of people at the expense of others.
