YJS condemns A. Yassin assassination [Archives:2004/724/Local News]

March 25 2004

Yemeni Journalist Syndicate (YJS) condemned the assassination of founder of Hamas, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, orchestrated by the terrorist Sharon. The Journalists syndicate calls on the Arab leaders, meeting in Tunisia in few days for their regular Arab Summit, to adopt a unified Arab stance to boycott the Government of the Zionist entity. This terrorist state constantly proves its continuous enmity to stability, security and peace in the region and the world.
The Syndicate, in a letter of condolence to the Chief of the Palestinian Journalist Syndicate, Mr. Naeam Al-Tobasi, expressed its deep condolence and solidarity with all the Palestinian people. It called on the Palestinians to unify their fronts and efforts to confront the enemy's plots, which would not be stopped at the assassination of the unarmed and paralyzed Sheikh Yassin. But it would not bend the determination of the Palestinian resistance in its legitimate struggle to liberate its country from the Zionists occupiers.
The Journalists Syndicate called on Yemeni journalists to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and journalists, standing in the front lines resisting the enemy, which would not hesitate to assassinate Palestinian journalists within its genocide campaign against the Palestinian people.
The Syndicate calls on the regional and international vocational organizations concerned with civil liberties and human rights to stand by the Palestinians facing genocide and discrimination at the hand of the Government of terrorist Sharon, which is a government that commits crimes against humanity on a daily basis and stands against the efforts to achieve just and real peace.
