"Well it looks like Osama bin Laden has now said more about the genocide in Darfur than George W. Bush."
A three-year conflict between Darfur’s rebels and the Arab-dominated central government has caused about 180,000 deaths — most from disease and hunger — and displaced 2 million people. The United Nations has described the conflict as the world’s gravest humanitarian crisis. The United States has described it as genocide. Negotiators are trying to broker a peace deal between warring factions by an April 30 deadline. Members of the African Union have agreed in principle to hand over peacekeeping duties to the United Nations beginning Sept. 30. ‘’I call on mujahedeen and their supporters, especially in Sudan and the Arab peninsula, to prepare for long war again the crusader plunderers in Western Sudan. Our goal is not defending the Khartoum government but to defend Islam, its land and its people,'’ bin Laden purportedly said. ‘’I urge holy warriors to be acquainted with the land and the tribes in Darfur.'’
"Hey, at least he’s mentioned Darfur exists. I guess that’s something Bush can aspire to."
