FAHMIA AL FOTIH', YEMEN: Reactions to Israeli attack on flotilla

The Israeli heinous disproportionate attack on the peace ships that were heading for the needy people in the siege Gaza has wrecked the hopes of peace!

Such an arrogant act is not just challenging for SAVE mission but it is challenging for international law and the international community as a whole.

Yemenis like other Arabs, Muslims, and people around the globe reacted in demonstrations that rocked the capital, Sana'a, and other cities early morning yesterday to strongly condemn the Israeli attack on the peace and aid convey. There are three Yemeni MPs on the flotilla.

Anger and resentment was obviously seen on the raged faces of the protesters most of which were young people from schools and universities. Looking at those angry young crowds who were calling for jihad and taking revenge from the Israeli criminals made me realize how difficult our work as SAVE would be! The same scenes were observed in all Muslim and Arab countries. At the moment, there are a number of events taking place here and there in Yemen to show solidarity with the ship of peace convey.

Without a doubt, these senseless activities and proactive actions plus the absence of international justice always invoke rage and give justification for any terrorist activity to take place which in turn pose a big challenge to achieve peace and reconciliation.
