President Omar al-Bashir has told every aid organization working in Darfur they must leave within one year or they will be thrown out. His defiant words came after the silence following his announcement last week that 13 agencies that were working with over two million refugees in Darfur had to leave. Strutting in his brand new uniform, the pompous thug who runs Sudan, announced: “I ordered humanitarian affairs officials that in one year we don’t want any foreign aid organizations working with our citizens and that Sudanese organizations will fulfill this role.” There is absolutely no chance Sudan organizations can or wish to work with Darfur refugees, given that Sudan rogue groups like the janjaweed were the ones who drove people from Darfur.
Al-Bashir in his sneering manner of dialogue said if the outside world seeks to send aid to Darfur they can leave the packages at the airport. Of course, if they are left at the air port, it is a certainty aid will never reach a single refugee. The Sudan leader could get away with this attitude because Muslim and Arab nations decried the International Criminal Court for issuing a warrant for his arrest. These are the same groups which go beserk when Israel violates international law, but in their view, genocide by Muslims or Arabs is not a cause of anger.

Thousands of people throughout the world are protesting against the inhumane bombing policy of Israel which has resulted in the deaths of innocent men, women, and children. But, for some strange reason, there are no demonstrations against the Muslim nation of Sudan which has killed–not 1,000– but over 200,000 innocent men, women and children as well as raping females and driving over 2.7 million Darfurians to seek refuge in other lands. Why is there silence in Muslim nations at what incoming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton terms a “terrible humanitarian crisis compounded by a corrupt and very cruel regime which she believes is engaged in genocidal policies.
The Obama administration is considering no-fly zones and even the possibility of blockading ports in order to end the murderous Muslim leadership which has unleashed the janjaweed to kill and rape without remorse. It appears the government of Sudan President Omar al-Bashir was praying for a McCain victory and now fear that liberal Democrats will actively support the people of Darfur. Bashir intensely dislikes Susan Rice, the new US Ambassador to the UN who has spoken of the need to end Sudan’s murderous policies in Darfur.
Hopefully, in the coming days, protestors in the Arab world, Europe, Latin America and Asia will be marching in the streets with signs saying, “we are all Darfurians.” If killing 1,000 is an example of “genocide,” then what is the killing of 200,000 to be termed?
