As obvious as it might sound, the closest definition of “ terrorist” is someone who causes terror. Therefore, all the terrorists groups, homicide bombers, mean boys in the playground and eventually, genocide committers may all receive this title; however, does giving Mr.Bashir a name will change anything he is responsible for ? Honestly, what the global community should be focusing now is purely FACTS. FACTS that will lead the UN to take him to the ICC, not because he is a possible terrorist, but purely because he committed a crime against humanity, supported the North’s appeal to destroy the South (of his own nation!) and clearly was in favor of the ethnical cleansing that occurred in the country he presided.
Therefore, it not a name that will change anything the criminal Mr.Bashir is responsible for, and the world’s necessity to see him being trialed in the ICC.
The South African delegate was unfortunate in his words, but America doesn’t see this as a concern, rather another title he is apt to receive. If he is or not, doesn’t really, matter. The facts exist to prove where Mr.Bashir should be- that is, behind bars.
