During times of war and during times of peace, we must prepare for tomorrow with the realities of today.

Darfur in grave danger, says Annan

Posted by Rosemary Welch on October 7, 2006

It is about time that Annan said something, anything. It’s just sad that the only time he bothers to say anything is when President Bush beats him to the punch.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said on Thursday Darfur was close to a catastrophe, as the United States sought to rebuke Sudan for trying to scare off potential U.N. troop contributors.

Annan, in his monthly report on Sudan’s vast Darfur region, said violence, rape and insecurity were on the rise, despite a peace agreement between the government and one rebel group. [Read the entire article.]

This is more than a catastrophe, this is genocide. And it’s happening on your watch…again.

  1. Bless you for your concern for Darfur.
    Several of us have decided to begin a RESCUE DARFUR FAST. One of us began 5 days ago, and several others today. Links below for the details.
    Nothing less than a worldwide fast-until-the-genocide-stops will be enough to stop it.
    Nothing less will be a sufficient moral response.
    Nothing less will preserve our humanity, yours and mine.

    Jay,

    Thank you for your comments. The atrocities in Darfur are outrageous. They are the magnitude of the Holocaust. It is imperative that the world community get involved.

    I have little faith in the United Nations and can only hope and pray that the world community says, “Enough is enough.  Free the people from oppression.” 

    Jay, thank you for your service.

    Respectfully,
    Bos’un

    Thank you, everyone. Now what we need to do is write and call our legislators, senators and the president. Pressure them, plead with them, work with them, and if all else fails *for women only*, turn on the tears! (I suppose you guys can cry as well, but I don’t see it…lol)

    What do we want? Action. We want Bashir to back down and let the Peace Makers into Darfur. Yes, I said peaceMAKERS. That is because there is no peace in that region as of today.

    Bashir is pushing forward more ferverently the genocide against the black people in AFRICA. This is being done by EGYPIANS. It does not matter if they are Muslims (the black people).

    The Arabs do not believe anyone but Arabs can be ‘true’ Muslims.

    Also, I have no faith in the UN. The first time they realize there are al-Qaida camps all over that country? They’re out of there! About as quickly as they left Iraq. You do know who’s fault it will be, don’t you? Just checking.
