In a lengthy editorial on the genocide in Sudan, the Washington Post (thanks to Bob) never once mentions the words “jihad,” “Islam,” “Muslim,” “Christian,” etc. We get no idea that “rebellion broke out” in Darfur because of violence by Arab Muslims against black Muslims. We are evidently supposed to believe that the “ethnic cleansing” of “Southern rebels” just happened, like some great force of nature.
Yet the lead sentence of the story tells us:
THE EARLY PREPARATION for the genocide in Darfur, Sudan’s vast western province, played out behind a veil of ignorance…
The Post seems to know a lot about veils of ignorance.
