ACCORDING TO THE United Nations, one of the world's worst humanitarian crises now afflicts a Muslim people who face a horrific campaign of ethnic cleansing driven by massacre, rape and looting. These horrors are unfolding not, as Arab governments and satellite channels might have it, in Iraq or the Palestinian territories, but in Sudan, a member of the Arab League. Maybe because there are no Westerners or Israelis to be blamed, the crisis in Darfur, in northwestern Sudan, has commanded hardly any international attention. Though it has been going on for 14 months, the U.N. Security Council acted on it for the first time yesterday, and then only by issuing a weak president's statement. More intervention is needed, and urgently.
The victims of the ongoing war crimes are non-Arab African people who have lived in the Darfur region for centuries.

demands I register with them and disclose marketing information, in return for the privilege of reading their article.

I won't register either. I have two cookies from the S.O.B.s, but apparently they want me to swallow another. No thanks.
The genocide in Sudan has been going on for as long as I can remember. At least 30 years. And they just noticed it?

You have to register to read the article, I will just say someone should tell the Right Reverend Farrakhan how the Muslims are treating his people.

If we could bomb Serbia, we can certainly bomb Sudan.
