Janjaweed Is No Party
They go by the name Janjaweed which sounds so Marley-cool. But they are an Arab killing machine in the Sudan that is doing the government's bidding. Nat Hentoff reports that besides their killing of "rebels", the Janjaweed are killing innocent citizens and relief workers. Those citizens are black Africans. CNN reports:
More than 180,000 people have died in Darfur and another 2 million people have been displaced since residents of African ethnic origin rebelled against the government, accusing it of neglect and discrimination.
BTW, Sudan is a member of the UN Comission on Human Rights. Did you know that?
