Queen Noor The widow of late Jordanian King Hussein believes that the humanitarian circumstances resulting out of the 6 years conflict in Darfur is an “obscenity”. In an interview Queen Noor said, “Darfur is an obscenity. The sources of that conflict are very complex but what has happened and is happening to the people on the ground is absolutely unacceptable by any norms”.

At the annual summit of Qatar this week, when Queen Noor was questioned about the support from the Arab leaders regarding the present situation, she commented that “it is a reflection of Arab concern over double standards”.

Arab leaders in Doha united strongly behind Sudan’s leader against the arrest warrant issued by International Criminal Court (ICC) last month for his supposed role in Darfur war crimes. The Arab League rejected the warrant and appealed the court to annul. The Arab League has also urged its members to show complete non-cooperation in regard to this issue of arrest warrant.

The US-born Queen Noor said that, whatever is taking currently place is inhuman, but it cannot be denied that the situation is an outcome of the perception of double standards in the region.

Jordan is one among the three Arab states which has approved the ICC’s Rome Statute.

During a speech at the Arab League summit, Jordan’s King Abdullah stated that ICC is required to deal with extreme sense of awareness and responsibility in order to ensure Sudan’s security, unity, independence and sovereignty.
