In an interview with the ‘CNN’ network, the monarch assured that the Western governments have a “double standard” to evaluate the conflict.
On October 7, when the attack by the armed wing of Hamas took place, “the world supported Israel, but now we see silence” about what is happening in Gaza, Rania told the American network.
“The silence is deafening”
“The silence was deafening (…) and makes the Western world complicit” in the deaths in Gaza “through the support they give to Israel under the premise that it is only defending itself,” emphasized the queen, of Palestinian descent.
Instead, he regretted that the governments of the Western world, including the United States, did not call for a ceasefire in the region.
“Many in the Arab world see that this is not just consent (the violence) but also support and facilitate it. It is deeply disappointing,” emphasized Rania.
The US and the European Union have suggested that they are inclined to allow “humanitarian pauses” in Gaza to bring aid to the civilian population of the strip, although they have not joined the Secretary General’s request for a ceasefire. Antonio Guterres.
