Sharon Speaks On His Assassination of Sheikh Yasin

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Statement at the Knesset.

Good day.

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.
