Simon Deng: no one tells the truth about Darfur—Arab Muslims are the enslavers

….and the UN is an accessory!

I’m still taking a break, but thought this was important to post without comment.

From Simon Deng writing about Durban III:

Like you, I came to this conference, The Perils of Global Intolerance to protest this third Durban conference which is an effort based on a set of lies, and organized by nations who are themselves are guilty of the worst kinds of oppression.

Durban III will not help the victims of racism. It will only isolate and target the Jewish state. It is a tool of the enemies of Israel. The UN has lost its way. Its obsession with the Jewish obvious: . For over 50 years, 82% of the UN General Assembly emergency meetings have been about condemning one state – Israel. Hitler could not have been made happier.

Given all the good Israel does in the world, given its democracy and its striving to follow the highest standards of human rights, even in the face of the most brutal, the most fanatic enemies, the Durban Conference is an outrage. All decent people know that.

But friends, I come here today to make a different case. I come with what you might at first think is a radical proposition: I come to tell you that there are peoples who suffer from the UN’s anti-Israelism even more than the Israelis. I belong to one of those people.

By exaggerating Palestinian suffering, and by blaming the Jews for it, the UN has muffled the cries of those who suffer on a far larger scale.

For over fifty years the indigenous black African population of Sudan — Christians and Muslims alike — have been the victims of the brutal, racist Arab Muslim regimes in Khartoum.

In South Sudan, my homeland, Sudan, about four million innocent men, women and children were slaughtered from 1955 to 2005. Seven million were ethnically cleansed, and they became the largest refugee group since World War II.

Everybody at the United Nations is concerned about the so-called Palestinian refugees. They dedicated a separate agency to provide for them; this agency, UNWRA, treats them with a special privilege.

Meanwhile, my people, ethnically cleansed, murdered and enslaved, are relatively ignored. The UN even resisted using the word “slavery” to describe the enslavement of tens of thousands of my people. Why? Because slavery is a crime against humanity, apparently no one committing it wanted to end up before an international court. When Khartoum insisted that the term “abducted people” be substituted for the word “slaves,” the UN, caved to Arab pressure and agreed. Try that in America. Try calling Frederick Douglas an “abducted person.” It is outrageous.

The UN refuses to tell the world the truth about the root causes of Sudan’s conflicts. Take Darfur, for example. Who knows really what is happening in Darfur? It is not a “tribal conflict.” It is a conflict rooted in Arab colonialism, as it has typically been practiced in Africa. In Darfur, a region in the Western Sudan everybody is Muslim. Everybody is Muslim because the Arabs invaded the North of Africa and converted the indigenous people to Islam In the eyes of the Islamists in Khartoum, the Darfuris are not Muslim enough. And they also do not want to be Arabized. They like their own African languages and dress and customs. They resist Arabization. The Arab response is genocide. But nobody tells the truth about Darfur.

Read it all.

Taking a break!

Judy and I began Refugee Resettlement Watch in the summer of 2007 and now it’s time for a break.

We are entering one of the most critical political years in American history and there is much to do elsewhere.   Don’t get me wrong, this issue is still a very very important one and we aren’t going away completely.  From time to time, we will post things that interest us, but we don’t have time to read comments and sort through them—like (LOL!) the comment from ‘American Boy’ yesterday who speculated that we only write this lousy blog because we probably got fired from a resettlement agency for committing a felony.  Yeh, that’s it!  How did he guess!

Until we return full time, there is still lots of good information posted here.  We have written almost 4000 posts and you should be able to track any subject we’ve written about by using our ‘search’ function (it is really good), or check out our various categories.

No sympathy for the Catholic Bishops

The whining continues from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) about being cut out of the federal largess via those lucrative Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) human trafficking grants awarded at the start of the new fiscal year.

I told you about the controversy, here, two days ago.   The USCCB is saying those secular agencies that did get the millions of taxpayer dollars have no experience in the field, AND that the ORR was responding in advance because the ACLU had filed suit claiming the Catholic agencies weren’t offering the “full range of reproductive services” (code of course for birth control and abortion).   On whose side did you think the Obama Administration would be?

From Catholic Culture:

The director of media relations of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is charging that the new recipients of a federal grant to assist victims of human trafficking lack experience.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement declined to renew a grant to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) to aid victims of human trafficking–likely because of the agency’s refusal to offer trafficking victims a “full range of reproductive services.” MRS has assisted 2,700 victims since 2006.

Bishops, when you take money from government it’s a form of sleeping with the devil and, if you have a conscience, the consequences are usually not happy ones in the long run.  There is no law against helping victims of trafficking all by yourself you know!

UK’s Cameron wants to put a halt to excessive immigration

Hey, good luck with that.

From the Law Enforcement Examiner:

According to Cameron [British Prime Minister David Cameron], illegal immigration has brought “real pressures on our communities up and down the country. Pressures on schools, housing and healthcare, and social pressures too.”

No kidding and we have reported previously on how Somalis are among those breaking into the UK.

Many of the immigrants who’ve recently entered the United Kingdom emanate from Middle Eastern and north African countries with Muslim majorities. Unlike in the United States, Muslim immigrants — legal or illegal — remain segregated by their own choice.

That made me laugh, I guess the author hasn’t been to Minneapolis, Seattle, San Diego, Columbus or even Lewiston, ME to see the cities within cities.

In England demonstrators get it that large numbers of immigrants are hurting the British economy, but our author wonders why the “occupy Wall Streeters” don’t get it.

The U.K. isn’t the only European nation considering a tough immigration policy. The Netherlands’ legislature is seeking tougher measures to curb rampant illegal immigration.

“Political leaders in the United States seem to always want to replicate European policies such as socialized medicine and other progressive public policy. So why don’t they wish to replicate what is now a hot topic in Europe? Why not replicate British immigration policy?” asks former NYPD detective Mike Snopes.

“President [Barack] Obama’s British counterpart mentioned pressures on schools, housing and healthcare, and social pressures that have resulted from Britain’s current immigration rules. Those are the same pressures the U.S. faces, as well,” claims economist Jerry Bendecker.

British cities, especially London, have endured violent protests by a population that is similar to the people in New York City’s Occupy Wall Street movement. However, a growing number of British protesters place part of the blame on uncontrolled immigration that reduces wages and lowers living standards.

My answer is that because it’s really not about jobs (or banks), the Wall Streeters are the dupes of Socialist/Marxist revolutionaries and at this time they see the immigrants as fellow Leftists.  As I have said before, if a majority of immigrants who entered the US said, you know I’m going to vote Republican, immigration (legal and illegal) would be stopped in a heart-beat.

Crime rampant in Clarkston, GA

Refugees and immigrants are targets says police chief of “Fugees” fame.

From Champion News:

Refugees and immigrants living in Clarkston are considered easy prey by criminals, said the city’s police chief during a recent meeting about crime prevention.

“All of our violent crimes that we’ve dealt with in the past five years have been [by people] from southwest and southeast Atlanta,” said Clarkston Police Chief Tony Scipio to a group of apartment managers, refugees and community leaders who want to reduce the crimes against refugees and immigrants.

“What we’re finding out from interviewing these suspects and perpetrators is that all eyes are on Clarkston because of the large influx of refugees and immigrants,” Scipio said. “They are easily preyed [upon].”

Scipio said that 69 percent of the crimes within the city limits are committed by nonresidents, many of whom live in the city of Atlanta.

Many criminals “plan their crime; they look at the area, they watch what you do every day,” Scipio said. “If you are not aware of your surroundings and your environment, and if you are not taking the necessary precautions, then eventually you’re going to become a victim, especially late at night.”

Scipio said many of the victims in Clarkston during the past three months were out late at night, small in stature and carrying large sums of money.

Hmmm! Out at night with large sums of money, what is that all about?
