Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has expressed his personal support for the president of Sudan, Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, who has been charged in the International Criminal Court with being responsible for the genocide in Darfur, Palestinian Media Watch reported. In a letter to the Sudanese president, Abbas wrote that he and PA Arabs "have complete faith in the wisdom of President Omar Al-Bashir."
PMW's Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik note that in 2008, evidence was presented in the International Criminal Court of Justice that showed that "Al-Bashir committed the crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur." The crimes against humanity include "murder, extermination, forcible transfer, torture and rape." Warrants for his arrest have been issued by the International Criminal Court.
