Israel-Hamas Conflict: Israel-Hamas conflict: Jordan’s Queen Rania slams western world over ‘glaring double standards’ newsbhunt

NEW DELHI: Queen Rania of Jordan condemned the western world‘s reaction to the Hamas attack on Israel as against Israel’s attack on Palestinians, calling it a “glaring double standard”.
Rania stated in a CNN interview that the people of Jordan and the Middle East were “shocked” to discover that the world vehemently denounced the cruel Hamas attack but is still standing by as a humanitarian crisis plays out in real-time in Gaza.
“Are we being told that it is wrong to kill a family, an entire family, at gunpoint, but it’s OK to shell them to death?” Rania asked.
“I mean, there is a glaring double standard here. It is just shocking to the Arab world,” she added.

Calling out the skewed response to the ongoing conflict, Rania asked, “We are seeing staggering human suffering happening today, so why is the narrative always skewed towards the Israeli side?”
“The Western media and policymakers are quick to adopt the Israeli narratives. When Israel attacks, Palestinians ‘die,’ but when Israelis die, they are ‘killed,’ murdered in cold blood,” she added.
Decrying the media for its coverage of the conflict, she said, “Most networks are covering the story under the title of ‘Israel at war.”
“But for many Palestinians on the other side of the separation wall, on the other side of the barbed wire, war has never left,” she added.

Highlighting the age old Palestinian conflict, she said, “This is a 75-year-old story, a story of overwhelming death and displacement to the Palestinian people.”
According to the Palestinian health ministry, which is controlled by Hamas, more than 5,700 Palestinians have died in the conflict so far, reported the Associated Press. Over 1,400 Israelis have died, the majority of them were civilians targeted by Hamas on October 7.
