The face of Islam?
Iran apparently thinks so, since it insists that anyone who messes with the Sudanese president is at once insulting and plotting against all of Islam and Muslims. The earlier report merely indicated that the warrant was an “insult to Muslims.” Now, trying to bring justice to a mass murderer, demagogue of jihad, and constant violator of human rights, is tantamount to a “plot against Islam” — you know, just as arresting Milosevic was a “plot against Christianity.”
“ICC warrant against al-Bashir, a plot against Islam: Larijani,” from ISNA, March 7:
TEHRAN, Mar. 07 (ISNA)-Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani termed International Criminal Court arrest warrant against Sudanese President a “plot against Islam.”
Leading a parliamentary delegation with 52 members from Islamic and Arabic countries who have participated at Tehran’s recent international conference on support for Palestine, Larijani said in Khartoum that the Hague-based ICC warrant against Omar al-Bashir was a plot against Islam, an insult against Muslims and has no legal justification.
And then, to pull on the heart-string’s of liberals — towards a Muslim thug responsible for mass genocide, destruction, and dislocation — he expresses disappointment in Hope:
“We consider the warrant as a political insult against Muslims, what we expected from changes in the US administration was that we would not witness such stances.”
The delegation is the representative of the public opinion in the world of Islam and assures Sudanese nation and government that Muslims will always stand against any plot, he added.
Referring to the US black history in regard with human rights and its measures in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib prisons and Afghanistan he added “they must not ask for others” punishment in charges of human rights violation, the West must know Muslims are vigilant and aware about such plots.”
