Surprise, Surprise, Arab and African nations as well as China and Russia don’t see Muslim President al-Bashir of Sudan as a criminal even though he has slaughtered hundreds of thousands of his own people.
But of course they believe Israel and America are the real war criminals.
The International Criminal Court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Sudanese President al-Bashir. He is charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity for the crisis in Darfur. But al-Bashir and many in the Arab and African world remain defiant and refuse to recognize the court’s decision. Most western media outlets immediately vilified al-Bashir, while Arab, African and Chinese media support the president and ask the question: if al-Bashir can be accused of these crimes, why not the leaders of Israel or the U.S?
