The Sudanese government must be feeling lonely indeed. The silence of the Arab governments over the indictment of Bashir is very noticeable.
The Arab leaders have decided to keep quiet. None has made any statements concerning the issue. The Arab league itself is yet to meet in an emergency meeting until Saturday and make an officila statement. If it were a Palestinian issue, an emergency meeting could have been convene within 72 hours!
And Sudan is said to be an Arab country. It must be real lonely up there for the president. I suggest he befriend Mugabe.
Where are the Egyptians, the Saudis, the Jordanians . . . The "loudest" silence of note is that of Mubarak.
Maybe each of the presidents are thinking that they maybe next on the list?
How about the Arab media? Except for the comments of the Saudi columnists critical of the regime before the indictment, there is non forth coming, unless ones am not familliar with. Arab News editorial could be the only commentary of note.
At least the Arab bloggers mentioned it: Black Iris of Jordan commented on "Who is your favourite war criminal?", the Mideast Youth on the Case for Sudan, not much has been mentioned. Even the Egyptian Sandmonkey didn't see it a topic worth discussing?
What about African Union? African Union are concerned about the losing the " gains that have been achieved so far" and creating a power vacuum in Sudan if the order is executed.
I thought it was gonna be a source of discussion for days on end. Maybe my expectations are beyond the reality.
