The Arab League accused the Syrian regime of crimes against humanity.
Nabil El-Araby, the Egyptian chief, declared yesterday: “There must be an impartial international inquiry into what is happening to uncover those responsible for these crimes to face justice.”
It is notable to mention here that when the Arab League protected Omar al-Bachir after killing some 300,000 of his own people and to this refuses to deliver him to the ICC even when a warrant has been issued for his arrest does not exactly exude confidence.
The Arab League did set a precedent when it comes to other criminals and it has little credibility, as much as Syrians want to see Assad pay for his crimes, to set the stage for criminal indictment of the Assad men with a history of protecting those who commit crimes against humanity.
Do you know which Muslim leader killed his enemies on live television, mutilated the body of his wife, killed tens of thousands of his countrymen, and kept pictures of their bloody deaths hanging on the wall in his office?
In 1979, after 8 years in power, he was exiled to Saudi Arabia where he died in 2003. We simply do not believe the Arab League qualifies to speak of crimes against humanity when it is the protector of ALL criminals in the Middle East.
We don’t object to the words of Nabil El-Araby, which as far as I can tell, sets another precedent in that he is the first ever Arab League Official to speak publicly of crimes against humanity against the leader of another Arab country, but we don’t trust these words.
Only the Syrian people can dispense justice.
