Monday, June 27, 2011, the international criminal court (ICC) issued arrest warrants for Muammar Gaddafi and his son Saif al-Islam over crimes against humanity during anti-regime protests. Wild celebrations erupted in Libya as the news spread through the country. “I’m happy, more than happy,” said a Misrata businessman. “We knew he was a criminal, now all the world knows he is a criminal.” But the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrants are not serious. A similiar warrant was issued in March 2009 for the arrest of Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir, over serious crimes in Darfur . But Omar al-Bashir is free, and in the recent days, he was in Tehran and met with Khamenei, that ICC should issue arrest warrants for him and his son too.
We know that Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, is well connected in the UK and had been seen as a possible interlocutor with the west, has also vowed to “live or die” in Libya. We know that, Gaddafi tries to bribe the West , and Nato operations in Libya are so weak, unacceptable and a sign of Western hypocrisy. Who know that the life and the money of the poor Libyans are spent on the Libyan war, but the Western hypocrite politicians and journalists pretend that the Nato operations are done for the sake of God ! We know that Libya is the neighbor of the Europe, especially France and Italy.
The ICC had to issue arrest warrants for Omar al-Bashir and Gaddafi. The ICC should issue arrest warrants for Khamenei and his son, Mojtaba, and also for Bastard Assad, very soon. But the ICC should take its arrest warrants very serious, and the brutal savage dictators should be arrested and tried for “crimes against humanity”. But now they are free and enjoy political supports. Why Omar al-Bashir has not been arrested after 10 years, and still kill the Sudanese? The ICC’s arrest warrants should have a meaning and a serious effect.
