Chairman of Council on International Relations, Basem Naim, expressed his sincere condolences to family of MP Jo Cox who was slain on Thursday.
Naim said in a press release Friday: ” we were deeply shocked by the murder of UK MP Jo Cox who was one of the most powerful supports for Palestine and its people’s rights, especially the refugees. She had honorable positions in defending boycotting the Israeli occupation as a legitimate right.”
” This murder sends a clear and powerful message that ‘ terrorism has no religion and homeland and doesn’t exclude anyone’. The Palestinian people knows enough the meaning of terrorism through what they suffered in the past 7 decades from “the state terrorism” that Israel exercised and still.”
Jo Cox, a Labour Party member of the UK Parliament, was slain on Thursday in what police said was likely the work of a lone gunman.
