Not in Gaza, where there has been no ethnic cleansing and no crimes against humanity, though there were war crimes committed by Hamas on October 7 in the kibbutzim and at the Re’im Music Festival. Ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity have been committed, and are still being committed, in the Sudan, carried out on helpless black Africans by well-armed Arabs. Tens of thousands have been killed, and 7.5 million people have fled their homes. Half the population of 49 million now face famine. Half a million of these Africans have fled into Chad to escape the murderous Arab militias. More on this ethnic cleansing, and these crimes against humanity, that receive almost no attention in the world media, fixated as it is on Gaza, can be found here: “Ethnic killings in one Sudan city left up to 15,000 dead – UN report,” Reuters, January 20, 2024:
The war has left nearly half of Sudan’s 49 million people needing aid, while more than 7.5 million people have fled their homes – making Sudan the biggest displacement crisis globally.
Between 10,000 and 15,000 people were killed in one city in Sudan’s West Darfur region last year in ethnic violence by the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and allied Arab militia, according to a United Nations report seen by Reuters on Friday [Jan. 19].
Within just a few days, in just one city, as many civilians were murdered in the Sudan as have died during more than three months of war in Gaza, where the IDF has estimated that of the 25,000 Gazans Hamas has so far declared dead, at least 10,000 were combatants, leaving 15,000 civilian deaths in Gaza, which is the upper estimate of the number of civilians killed in the Sudan.
In the report to the UN Security Council, independent UN sanctions monitors attributed the toll in El Geneina [Sudan] to intelligence sources and contrasted it with the UN estimate that about 12,000 people have been killed across Sudan since war erupted on April 15, 2023, between the Sudanese army and the RSF.
The monitors also described as “credible” accusations that the United Arab Emirates had provided military support to the RSF “several times per week” via Amdjarass in northern Chad. A top Sudanese general accused the UAE in November of backing the RSF war effort.
In a letter to the monitors, the UAE said 122 flights had delivered humanitarian aid to Amdjarass to help Sudanese fleeing the war. On Saturday, a UAE official told Reuters that it extended an invitation to the UN monitors to visit a field hospital in Amdjarass “to learn firsthand about the humanitarian efforts undertaken by the UAE to help alleviate the suffering caused by the current conflict.”
The UAE has been supplying weapons to fellow Arabs in the Rapid Support Force in what is clearly a race war: well-armed Arabs have been massacring thousands of unarmed black Africans, while at the same time driving half a million black Africans from Sudan into Chad. The UAE claims in a letter that it had delivered humanitarian aid “to help Sudanese fleeing the war.” This may well be, because providing such aid can be used as a carrot to get these Sudanese to flee to Chad, leaving their lands in Sudan behind, to be claimed by the Arabs.
The United Nations says about 500,000 people have fled Sudan into eastern Chad, several hundred kilometres south of Amdjarass.
Half a million black Africans from the Darfur region, where the mass killings have been taking place, have so far fled into Chad. Many of these unarmed black Africans were murdered by Arab gunmen as they attempted to flee. Yet the international media have scarcely said a word. Instead, they are focusing on “innocent civilians” killed by the IDF in Gaza.
Between April and June last year El Geneina experienced “intense violence,” the monitors wrote, accusing the RSF and allies of targeting the ethnic African Masalit tribe in attacks that “may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.”
The RSF has previously denied the accusations and said any of its soldiers found to be involved would face justice. The RSF did not immediately respond to a request for comment by Reuters.
There is no reason to think that the monitors’ accusations against the RSF are false. The RSF’s promise to punish any soldiers involved in the very murders it denies having had a hand in, suggests recognition by the RSF that the monitors have the goods on its homicidal operatives.
“The attacks were planned, coordinated, and executed by RSF and their allied Arab militias,” the sanctions monitors wrote in their annual report to the 15-member Security Council….
The monitors’ report included similar accounts. They said that between 14-17 June, some 12,000 people fled El Geneina on foot for Adre in Chad. The Masalit were the majority in El Geneina until the attacks forced their mass exodus.
“When reaching RSF checkpoints women and men were separated, harassed, searched, robbed, and physically assaulted. RSF and allied Arab militias indiscriminately shot hundreds of people in the legs to prevent them from fleeing [the Arab robbers],” the monitors said.
They were shot so that they could not flee from the RSF conscripts who wanted to rob them. Once their property had been taken, the RSF was happy to see the black Africans whom they had wounded hobble off to Chad.
“Young men were particularly targeted and interrogated about their ethnicity. If identified as Masalit, many were summarily executed with a shot to the head. Women were physically and sexually assaulted. Indiscriminate shootings also injured and killed women and children,” according to the report.
The Arabs, both in the RSF and in the militias allied to it, were determined to either murder or to drive out of the Sudan all the members of the black African — Masalit —people. There was no fighting; the Masalit were unarmed, and men, women, and even children were summarily executed. The Masalit had done nothing to earn Arab enmity; it was enough that they were, as black Africans, considered inferior by the Arabs, who wanted to take over their lands in Darfur through a campaign of rapine and murder. And they have succeeded; the exodus continues. How many more need to be murdered or driven out for the UN to send in peacekeeping troops to prevent the Arabs from succeeding in their attempts to ethnically cleanse Darfur?
Which conflict has caused more deaths in the past year: that in Gaza or that in the Sudan? Which conflict has caused more people to flee to another country — that in Gaza or that in the Sudan? In which conflict do we see both ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity — that in Gaza or that in the Sudan? Sudan, Sudan, Sudan.
And why is it, then, that we do not see protest marches around the world in defense of the Sudanese blacks, nor hear calls for the Arabs to observe a “ceasefire,” or listen to fiery condemnations of the Arab killers in Sudan by the UN General Assembly or the UN Security Council? Why is all the outrage reserved for denunciations of the tiny Jewish state, as its people fight their fourth war of survival in 2023-2024, as they had previously been forced to do in 1948, 1967, and 1973? We know, alas, the answer to that.
