Sharon Speaks On His Assassination of Sheikh Yasin
Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Statement at the Knesset.
This morning, the State of Israel struck at the head of the Palestinian terrorist murderers. The essence of this man's ideology was one the murder and killing any Jews, and the destruction of the State of Israel. I presume you are all aware of the blood-soaked past and hatred of this arch-murderer, who was among the worst of Israel's enemies.
I take this opportunity to thank the security system and all its arms for the action this morning.
I wish to clarify: the war against terror has
not ended, and will continue daily, everywhere. This is a
difficult campaign in which all nations of the free world
understand that they must play a part. It is the natural
right of the Jewish people, as any other nation which wishes
to exist, to pursue those who rise to destroy it.
