It seems that double standards still rule our world; there is not enough balance, justice and equality among countries and nations.
The world is controlled by leaders, who make decisions that have a global impact and ignore human rights.
These decision-makers are usually benefit-oriented and self-serving and ignore any effect on third parties. The result is a flawed judiciary that abuses the law and lets criminals go free.
This week, an important event occurred in this context that the local media didn't mention:
A flawed verdict issued by an Israeli judge, exonerating a soldier accused of killing the American activist Rachel Corrie, who was 23 years old at the time of her death. She tried to stop an army bulldozer from demolishing a Palestinian house in Haifa, got run over and killed.
The judge ruled that it was her decision to stand in front of the bulldozer and the fatal outcome was her sole responsibility. The driver claimed he did not see Rachel.
There were a great number of Israeli and Palestinian witnesses to Rachel's death.
This incident led to angry reactions in Western circles, while the Islamic and Arab world completely ignored it. It seems that there is not much interest for the abuse of justice; people apparently prefer to keep their eyes closed.
