      STATEMENT OF THE BRITISH ARAB MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (BAMA), LONDON 26th July
      2006

      The British Arab Medical Association (BAMA), a society for Arab Doctors and
      allied professionals in the UK, express their utter condemnation of the
      Israeli attacks against Lebanon, and abhor the continuous destruction of Lebanon's
      infrastructure and the bombardment of its civilian districts.

      We extend our heartfelt support to those hundreds of families who have lost
      their loved ones, or been made homeless, through this mindless saga of
      destruction.

      The social impact of the devastation of whole neighbourhoods, schools and
      the dislocation of communities is of great concern to us, and we call upon the
      governments of all nations to demand a halt to Israeli aggression to put an
      end to this tragedy.

      The Middle Eastern governments should bear their share of responsibility in
      ensuring stability and provide comprehensive logistic support to achieve
      peace for Lebanon, Iraq and the region in general.

      BAMA believes that the region needs a genuine pragmatic initiative to stop
      the region from sliding further back into a social and political wilderness -
      Iraq and Sudan were the tragedy of yesterday, sadly it seems Lebanon's turn
      today, who is next?

      Lebanon presents us all with a social and humanitarian tragedy, as much as a
      political dilemma. It is clearly a human rights issue, where population are
      denied their basic human rights by such relentless aerial bombardment of
      civilian districts.

      It is imperative that western governments give outright condemnation of the
      actions of Israel's government and give moral and economic support for
      Lebanon to recover from this wholesale destruction.


      President of BAMA and Council members
