Columnist Mohammed al-Zabidi says in an article that it seems the weak is no longer having a place on earth which has become undisputedly possessed by the powerful. What happened at the United Nations on the eve of last Friday confirms this equation. The Security Council issued a resolution sending all those who have committed war crimes in Darfur to the International Criminal Court provided that any Americans, civilians or military, would not be included by this resolution.

Of course, the Hebrew state is included in these guarantees and we do not know who has offered those guarantees to the two administrations. The Hebrew government that has over the past four years committed all sorts of war crimes would not be subject to be prosecuted by the international court and those who perpetrated war crimes in Iraq are also exempted from prosecution by the same court. This is the logic of power and the law of the jungle.
