You offend him, you offend the entire Muslim world
Even though Bashir’s Khartoum government is responsible for mass genocides (not to mention mass rapes) in Darfur. But as Ibn Kathir reminds us with the following sahih hadiths: Muhammad said “‘A believer to a believer is like unto a building that makes firm all its parts together.” At this, he [Muhammad] interlocked his fingers. Another trustworthy saying: “˜In the compassion and mercy the believers possess for one another, they are like one body: Should one of its members be struck ill, the rest of the body suffers from fevers and insomnia,’ [The Al Qaeda Reader, p.99.]”
“Larijani: ICC warrant, insult to Muslims,” from Press TV, March 6:
Iran’s Parliament speaker says the ICC arrest warrant for Sudan’s president is an insult to the African country and the Muslim world.
After arriving in Khartoum on Friday, Speaker Ali Larijani said the so-called human rights guardians in the International Criminal Court (ICC) showed that they are on the wrong path by issuing the warrant.
The ICC on Wednesday issued an international warrant for the arrest of President Hassan al-Bashir.
The warrant was issued at the request of The Hague-based court’s Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo who holds Bashir responsible for the atrocities committed in the western Sudanese region of Darfur.
Six years of armed rebellion in the Darfur region against the Khartoum government has reportedly claimed 300,000 lives.
Bashir had earlier blamed the West for conspiring against him, saying that issuing an arrest warrant would be of “no value”.
