A Selective Approach to Western Justice As Butcher of Bosnia Ratko Mladic Goes to The Hague

Depending on what side of the fence you’re sitting on, you either view the arrest of Ratko Mladic with pleasure or disdain. The Akh is old enough to remember what The Butcher of Bosnia did, and when The Akh visited Bosnia & Croatia, the brutal legacy left behind by this man (and his followers in the Chetnik army) were nothing short of devilish.

For many young Muslims like myself at the time, we believed that this was yet another war against Muslims. Years later Radovan Karadzic admitted that the Serbs were engaged in a “just and holy war”, it was no rhetorical exaggeration, he and his supporters believed God was on their side, to battle against Muslims.

After the genocidal atrocities committed against the Jews in World War Two, the world collectively said “never again” would such acts happen again on European soil, so why less than 50 years later were concentration camps allowed to exist to exterminate tens of thousands of Muslims in Srebrenica?

Their aim was simply put:

“300,000 Muslims Will Die, They Will Disappear From The Face of This Earth”

Governments the world over want to know what it is that radicalises Muslims, all we had to do was turn on the TV and see for ourselves what the result of your political inabilities had resulted in – the slaughter and rape of Muslims, less than a three hour flight from London.

While the media talk about the great justice system we have, The Akh has to point out the hypocrisy and double standards being shown.

Ratko Mladic is known to be the General of the Serb forces that carried out these atrocities and yet he is captured peacefully and bought to trial, being responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands in the the former Yugoslavian block.

Yet Osama Bin Laden, is executed, for apparently being behind the 9/11 attacks for which no proof has ever been presented, proof on which a legal case can be built and a prosecution built upon.

Western journalists and media have been sitting on the fence for so long now that they have splinters up their backside.

This selective approach on when and where the law should be applied does nothing but create friction and adds fuel to the fire that many Muslims believe –

There is a war against Islam.
