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?
