The Why Behind the Darfur Genocide
In this article by Egypt's Algomhuria, translated from the original Arabic states:
"It seems that the United States is not content to occupy Iraq and Afghanistan, but that it also wants to meddle in the Sudan. American intentions toward Sudan have been clear since the crisis began in Western Sudan's Darfur Province. At the start of the crisis, Washington made many statements wherein it described the situation as genocide, and holding the Sudanese government fully responsible. Now the U.S. President has appealed to NATO Secretary General Japp de Hoop Scheffer for a NATO intervention into Darfur. He said that in order to end the crisis, they discussed a strategy that would allow NATO to take a leading role in the province."
While this indictment of our intentions are totally false, I hope it draws your attention to the Sudan. There is a tragedy happening in the Darfur province of Sudan that can only be described as genocide. It is interesting to read the Egyptian press while recognizing the crisis in Darfur is speaking against NATO interference.
Now, the African Union has been observing the genocide, but has not been effective in making changes in the region. What is needed is prompt action, and the quickest and most effective means would be through NATO. Egypt of course could act, as well as other countries in the region. If there was a just reason for a Jihad this could be their beckoning, to reverse the tide of this genocide.
In this article(thanks Wolfbane), it makes an easily understood assessment of what is happening in Darfur. I encourage you to read the article in full:
"Just to put this in terms as stark as possible: Since 2003 the Sudanese government has carried out a strategic campaign to either destroy or herd the residents of the region into as compact an area as possible so they can be exterminated. "
Why is Sudan doing this, and perhaps why the Egyptian press is opposed to NATO interference, you may find some eye opening answers here.
