Refugee camp jihad. And make no mistake: a jihad is exactly what it is “” waged by Arab Muslims against non-Arabs Muslims whom they do not consider sufficiently Islamic. Sudanese General Mohamed Beshir Suleiman put it this way: “The door of the jihad is still open and if it has been closed in the south it will be opened in Darfur.” “U.N.: Attack in Darfur kills 29 refugees,” from Reuters, with thanks to Special Guest:
GENEVA, Switzerland (Reuters) — Twenty-nine people were reported killed in an unprecedented attack on a refugee camp in the northwest of the Sudan region of Darfur, the United Nations said on Thursday.
According to initial reports, the Aro Sharow camp was attacked by 250 to 300 “armed Arab men on horses and camels” late on Wednesday, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a statement.
Another 10 people were reported to have been seriously wounded and the nearby village of Gosmeina was also believed to have been attacked and burned, the agency said. The death toll referred only to camp dwellers….
And in response, the UN threatens to…cut and run:
The U.N. has warned that it may have to suspend aid operations in Darfur because of a resurgence in violence.
Following the attack, High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said it was the responsibility of the Sudanese government to restore order.
I see: the fox must guard the henhouse, eh?
“As long as this insecurity continues, the international community cannot provide the assistance that is so desperately needed by hundreds of thousands of people,” Guterres said.
“The government of Sudan has a responsibility to ensure security for all its citizens,” he added.
The UNHCR said that most of the camp dwellers had fled into the surrounding countryside, which the U.N. considers unsafe.
The attackers had apparently burned about 80 crude shelters, around a quarter of the camp’s households.
