Two years after Latifa Al Maktoum published a secretly-taken video and explained how she’s being held hostage by her father and explained only some of horrible things her father did and does, there’s still no good news about her.
Every single day, we see news about how she’s still missing and hear politicians expressing concerns about her situation and whether she’s still alive or not, but there’s still no action.
This is very concerning. As a person who lives in a sanctioned country, which some of them are for violation of human rights, I feel very frustrated and sad. This is another proof that western countries such as Amerikkka and Britain do not champion freedom, but they only value benefit.
How come if countries like China, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, etc. violate human rights, they get sanctioned and held responsible in United Nations Security Council, but when Amerikkka’ allies violate human rights, nothing happens?
I’m not defending violation of human rights, I’m just condemning the double-standard of USA and many other countries. What I see is that they ignore this human rights violations because they see their financial and economic interests at stake if they act.
Amerikkka, Britain, France, Canada, Germany, etc. impose new sanctions on Iran and some other countries with the reason of violation of human rights but they are scared of doing the same with UAE when they see such horrible thing, directly done by the leaders of the country.
They, western countries, are selling weapons, missiles, and military equipment, and their business will be jeopardized by sanctions, so they do nothing. They do not sacrifice their business for human freedom and human rights, and this only shows their hypocrisy and malice.
Latifa’s story is just one of many examples of violation of human rights in allied countries of Amerikkka. Sadly, they have not taken any positive practical step and this should be changed.
We should act for Latifa and one positive possibly-effective step is to force our governments to impose high pressure on those who responsible on this matter. Expressing concern will do nothing for Latifa and others in same situation, UAE dictators and all those responsible should feel a serious and practical threat.
