SANA'A,  Khaled Mishaal, the supreme leader of the Hamas movement, has asked the Arab countries having relations or contacts with Israel to sever them at once in retaliation to the Israeli attack on the Freedom Flotilla.

He told a press conference in the Yemeni capital after meeting with president Ali Saleh that the UN Security Council resolution regarding the crime was "disappointing" and was encouraging Israel to commit more crimes.

Mishaal said that the Israeli aggression was a "milestone" signaling a new stage and the siege on Gaza was no longer acceptable. He charged that Israel had revolted against the entire world, humanitarian law and heavenly religions.

The Hamas leader asked the Arab leaders to immediately meet and decide to break the siege on Gaza, and urged Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, in particular, to take a daring decision and to open the Rafah terminal on permanent basis.

He hailed the Kuwaiti step in withdrawing support for the Arab peace initiative, and renewed appreciation of the Turkish position.  He urged the Arab countries and parties to display solidarity with Turkey similar to its solidarity with the Palestine cause.

Mishaal hailed the solidarity activists on board the Freedom Flotilla and ridiculed Israel for claiming they had connections with Hamas.

Meanwhile, tens of thousand of Yemenis took part in a massive protest rally in Sana'a against the Israeli attack on the peaceful Flotilla.
