Darfur: It's the Jihad, Stupid
The Arab supremacist government of the Sudan is conducting a jihad against the population of Darfur, killing, raping, starving and enslaving hundreds of thousands. Yet most activists for Darfur refuse to acknowledge the role Islam plays in the plans of the Arab leadership in Khartoum. There is almost complete silence about the Arab League providing cover to the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.
But the victims are Muslims as well, you might say? Yes, but they aren't Arab. And they aren't Wahabbis. And they don't practice the same version of Islam. And they're black Africans. And they're in the way. That is how the Sudanese government, and sadly, much of the Arab world see it.
Think about it. If the Arabs are willing to sacrifice their own children in order to kill Israelis or Americans, why would they hold the lives of black Africans in any higher regard? They don't. Their contempt for black people was evident in the genocide of more than a million black Christians and animists in the Sudan.
The government makes money off of oil. It has pan-Islamist and pan-Arabist dreams. If black Muslims must starve or be decapitated in order that they don't stand in the way of the greater good of the Muslim ummah, then so be it. Jihad has been declared in all its glory. Off goes Allah's soldiers killing men, raping women, enslaving children, terrorizing the population, stealing their possessions, destroying their ability to provide food for themselves and many other horrors done while joyously chanting "Allahu Akbar."
And what greater good will the Muslim world do with that extra oil revenue? Fund the jihad and kill Jews and Christians. And maybe Muslims as well who are apostates, practicing a less pure form of Islam, or who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Wouldn't the "Save Darfur" folks do better to tell the truth about what is going on there? Why not connect the dots? What is going on in Darfur is related to 9/11, to the worldwide jihad "against the Crusaders and the Jews," to the terrorism taking place from Spain to Bali. It is not only morally right to help ease the suffering in Darfur, it is in our national interest to frustrate the dreams of the jihadists and slow the momentum that is building from one terrorist success after another.
