Daily Darfur: A Little Propaganda with your Wheaties this Morning?
Start your morning the right way with a dose of vehement propaganda: Check out this translation of an op-ed from a pro-government newspaper in Sudan...
I'm not quite sure if this self-professed (Arab) expert on the American political system is threatening Obama himself, or saying that some other power will do it if he steps out of line...perhaps both? When speaking of "the lobbies," he is almost certainly harping on (ridiculous, racist, and absurd) prominent Sudanese anti-Semitic propaganda that accuses an "international Zionist conspiracy" of ruling the world. Scary stuff...
What about the Victims?
In an op-ed Asharq Alawsat, a "pan-Arab" daily newspaper, journalist Diana Mukkaled criticizes the Arab world for indifference and hypocrisy for "jumping on the bandwagon to defend al-Bashir" while ignoring the 300,000 victims of his brutal campaign in Darfur:
"Both the Arab governments, and the Arab public, were outraged at the news that the International Criminal Court was to bring formal charges of war crimes against the Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir. The outrage that the Arabs expressed in this right was far louder than any anger they expressed at the death of more than 300,000 Sudanese, the displacement of more than two million refugees, and the rape of thousands of women in Darfur.
Shouldn't the notable Arab media's defense of Al-Bashir have been commensurate with the Arab media's defense of the victims of Darfur? In order to convince the public that we are victims of the West's monopoly on international opinion, we must first show them that we side with the victims of those who were killed.
In spite of the testimonies and documented evidence with regards to the systematic rape of women in Darfur, Al Bashir has found many defenders who do not even refrain from accusing the victims of lying."
Just send George Clowney and Dumb Cheadle there, along with the “enlightened” Hollywood freaks...they’ll solve the problem.
Yes, you are right, hypocritical Hollywood has done “much” to stop the genocide... unless one counts a few photo-up opportunities...
