Mukhriz’s press statement on the latest Israeli aggression on Gaza

MEDIA STATEMENT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DECEMBER 31, 2008

YB Dato Mukhriz Mahathir

Coordinator, Aman Malaysia

 

The Israeli aggression against the defenceless Palestinian people continues unabated. The death toll now stands at 400 innocent lives and scores others seriously injured with grave warnings that more lives will be lost as the Zionist regime mobilises its ground forces for a bloody incursion into the Gaza strip.

 

This senseless and indiscriminate killing must cease and desist at once for this murderous act by the Israeli government is in contravention with the tenets of established international law, the Geneva Conventions and United Nations Resolutions. The Zionist regime with the support and complicity of the United States must be strongly condemned by the international community as a flagrant denigration of basic human rights.

 

Therefore, we urge The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Wisma Putra) to move a motion at the United Nations (UN) to immediately organize and dispatch a ‘UN Humanitarian Task Force’ to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.

 

We also demand that the UN censures Israel for its abhorrent conduct and the United States for its complicity in this act of state sponsored terrorism.

In this regard, we are prepared to extend aid and assistance to our Palestinian brethren. For your information Kassem Aina of the National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training (NISCVT) is organizing humanitarian aid in the form of essential food items such as milk and medicine. Monetary donations are welcomed. Contributions can be sent as ‘Donations for Children’ to the National Institution of Social Care and Vocational Training- Account number: 000 1 10684 5002- First National Bank, Immobilita Building- SWIFT Code: FINKLBBE, Hamra Street , PO Box 113-5453. Beirut, Lebanon.

 

Sincerely,

Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir

Chairman
UMNO Youth International and NGO Relations Bureau/

Coordinator, Peace Malaysia
