Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Attack Against "charlie Hebdo" Magazine In Paris , 07.01.2015
No: 8, 7
condemn the heinous terrorist attack perpetrated today in Paris against the
"Charlie Hebdo" satirical magazine and resulted in the death of 12
and the injury of 20 innocent persons.
The attack has
demonstrated once again the savage character of those who have adopted violence
as a means to preserve and disseminate their views and notions.
This attack is
above all an aggression against humanity and its universal values. The
perpetrators of this attack have grossly betrayed the civilization that they
claim to belong. İt is obvious that this vicious attack will serve no other
purpose than providing ground to islamophobic, racist and xenophobic circles.
Terror has no
religion, nationality or any value that it can represent. Terrorism is a crime
against humanity and cannot be justified under any circumstances.
It is the duty
of all humanity to prevent the expansion and deepening of the culture of
violence, to consider in the most serious manner how to eliminate it from daily
life and to determine and implement the necessary measures for this purpose. No
delay should be allowed in this task. Otherwise, the notion of universal
tolerance which offers the cure for the ever expanding culture of confrontation
in today's world will be further eroded. Undoubtedly, this has been one of the
aims of the perpetrators of this heinous attack in Paris.
We convey our
condolences to the friendly French nation with whom we stand in solidarity in
this difficult time that they pass through. We wish strength and fortitude to
those who lost their relatives and speedy recovery to those injured.
