There are a lot of Muslims that are cheering the recent arrest of the Serbian war-criminal Radovan Karadzic one of the chief architects of the genocide against Bosnian Muslims. From the start let me say that this is a truly evil man who killed Muslims for the sake of his hatred of Muslims. Muslim women were raped in camps, imams gutted, men slaughtered, towns burned, and mosques destroyed under the campaign designed by Karadzic. He is not deserving of pity, especially coming from a Muslim.
Karadzic will have his defenders; more than likely those on the far-left who defended the Serbs during the war (including Ramsey Clark and the like who have since seduced gullible Muslims around the country) and those on the right who see Karadzic and his Serbian henchman as defenders of Christendom.
I am not defending Karadzic. I believe the man should die by execution; but I believe his execution should come at the hands of those he transgressed against and not a paternal International Criminal Court designed and ran by the former colonial powers.
The ICC, which America is not a signatory to, is the darling of Europe and the so-called “human rights community”, but at its core it undermines the fundamental values of national sovereignty and regional conflict solving methods. The same Europeans who would not lift a finger during the conflict to help the Bosnian Muslims (and even when they had troops on the ground did virtually nothing o protect the innocent) are now being self-righteous in the horror at the crimes committed by Karadzic and his Serbian forces.
A further example of this is the announcement of a war crimes indictment for the Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir. Just yesterday members of the African Union, the body that should be in charge of African conflict-solving, announced that this indictment may lead to war and will hurt the cause of peace. After more than a generation of war and more than 2.5 million deaths with Marxist, animist, Christian and Muslim rebels in the South, al-Bashir boldly convinced his fellow Northerners and his political party for the need for peace and in 2004 signed a historic peace-accord with southern rebels making concessions on both sides that has largely held-up.
