FAIR Offers Hand of Friendship to London Victims

In the wake of the London Bombings, South Armagh victimís organisation FAIR would like to extend their heartfelt sympathy to those affected of the London bombings. As people who have also suffered at the hands of terrorist extremists, FAIRs membership empathises with those suffering today and understands the resulting trauma which can haunt victims for a lifetime.

FAIR spokesperson William Frazer gave firm warning to the British Government. "We have warned the government on several occasions regarding the links between Republicans and Islamic terror organisations. We have warned the Government about the networking between international terrorists."

"We have alerted the Government on several occasions to the sort of activities that make events like this happen" he continued, "It is only by clamping down on terrorists at home and abroad will we end the horrors such as those witnessed in London this morning."

The British Government have sent out the wrong message to international terrorists due to its lax attitude at home. Britain can only be seen as a soft target for terror attacks, when murder and mayhem by the IRA has won concession after concession.

As a group FAIR calls on the British and Irish Governments to cease their appeasement of terrorists in Northern Ireland to avoid more encouragement to worldwide terrorist fraternity.

It is with disgust that Swe responds to Gerry Adams hollow statement of sympathy and solidarity to Tony Blair, Ken Livingstone and the people of London. One has to ponder how a man who represents one of the most efficient terror organisations in the world, with thousands of deaths on their hands, can be so hypocritical. Has he no shame?

We note that he never expressed sympathy for the victims of the Warrington Bomb in 1993, the Canary Wharf bombing of 1996 or indeed the continuous IRA campaign of terror in Northern Ireland which has claimed so many lives. So obviously, in Mr Adams and Sinn Feinís eyes, terrorism is only wrong when it does not serve an Irish Republican purpose.

In fact Mr Adams sees fit to campaign for the release of Sean Kelly, a convicted bomber with blood on his hands, so how can he then condemn a no less brutal attack.

The people of Northern Ireland, the Security Services and the Government itself are already aware of the links between the IRA and other terrorist organisations such as ETA, FARC, PLO and extremist Islamic groups such as Al-Qaeda. The Government may choose to turn a blind eye to this to suit its Political Agenda but we at FAIR hope that people nationally and internationally will not be taken in by this callous attempt to sell this false image of ĎAdams the Compassionate Peacemakerí.

In conclusion FAIR has openly offered to provide assistance to any victims of the London Bombings. Interested parties can contact the FAIR office via telephone 028 37 552619 or email info@victims.org.uk
