Palestinian Government appreciates European stand on Sharon

The Palestinian Government in Gaza's media consultant Taher Alnono today announced that the government appreciates the European stand in refusing to observe one minute's silence to mourn the death of former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon.

"That stand sends a political and moral message reflecting that the international community is convinced of the crimes committed by the Israeli occupation and its commanders, who kill Palestinian people," Alnono said.

He urged the international community to prosecute living Israeli commanders who have committed crimes against civilians.

"The European attitude is a message for Israeli commanders to halt their crimes and violations against humanity, they cannot fool the international community and public opinion anymore," he added.
