COPAA Condemns Acts of Terror in London & Sharm el-Sheik


Fullerton: The Council of Pakistan American Affairs (COPAA) has strongly condemned the second act of terrorism in London on July 21, 2005 and the terrorism attack in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheik on July 23, 2005. “Both of these attacks were against innocent and unsuspecting civilians. COPAA offers its deepest and heartfelt sorrow to the victims, their families and loved ones,” says a CPOPAA press release.
It adds: “Whether the terrorist attacks were in London or Sharm el-Sheik, the innocent victims of these heinous acts were citizens representing many different age groups, socio-economic groups, professions, cultures, religions, beliefs and nationalities. These acts are truly reprehensible and shameful acts of terrorism against the world community whether they are in London or Egypt.
“COPAA is grateful for the efforts and the accomplishments of the Government of Egypt and the Government of Pakistan to work with multinational law enforcement agencies to rapidly achieve specific and important results in the London bombing. COPAA applauds the dedicated and continued commitment of the Governments of Egypt and Pakistan in their fight against terrorism.
“COPAA strongly urges world leaders and the world community to unite in the strongest condemnation of these terrorist acts and in the effort to bring these terrorists to justice as quickly as possible. We must unite against the perpetrators, their leaders, their supporters and the people who condone these terrorist acts,” the press release concludes.
