When war crimes are just……..war crimes.
Lies, damned lies and the Darfur crisis

This is bad analysis to what is happening in Darfur. First, the conflict is not between Muslims and Christians. There are no christians in the west of Sudan and in Darfur particularly. The conflict is and was always about pastures and grazing lands. The fighting took a nasty dimension betrween the different ethnic tribes. It is now an ethnic clash. The Darfur rebels are now divided into 15 different factions who are fighting each other as well as the government and the Janjaweed. And by the way some of the Arab tribes (of which the Janjaweed are largely composed of) are fighting with the Zagawa and fur tribes (the ethnically African tribes). One more thing…you can not differentiate between the Arab and African tribes as they are both black and muslim. The media in the USA and the rest of the western world will always want to make this conflict look as a fight between blacks and Arabs and Islam against Christianity…
I am from Sudan and from Darfur…I just want this conflict to stop and I hate the way it is shown in the USA media as nasty muslims against christians and murderous Arabs against blacks…Please visit Sudan and see for yourself if you can differentiate between the tribes in Darfur. They are almost the same…in colour, religion and culture.

When we post links it is as current news.
The people murdered, raped and living in refugee camps are for the most part from African tribes. We undnerstand the dilemma and also want it to stop.
Most people here understand the deeper picture you should read more of what has been written here in the past.
One of the authors here, may be in Sudan in July.
It won’t change the fact this must stop.
