Sudan's President, Omar Hassan al-Bashir
Remember when the UN's Kofi Annan was preening himself a little while ago over a supposed agreement with Sudan's jihadi government to accept a UN/ African Union force to protect Darfur's civilians from genocide?
Well, it seems that's Mr. Annan's self-congratulation was a mite premature. Al-Reuters reports today that not only isn't the President al-Bashir going to allow any UN or AU troops in, but now he denies there's any problem!
What's more, Darfur is just a Zionist Conspiracy anyway.
Or to quote al-Bashir, "You cannot at all rule out the Israeli role in any problem that any Arab country is facing because the security of Israel is based on weakening Arab states," he said.
"Israel would do everything through their media and their different mechanisms - you can't deny they have such influence in circles all over the world so they can do what they want."
To date, even conservative estimates are that more than 200,000 people have been killed by the Sudanese `janjaweed' militias and the government's armed forces and that over 2 million people have been displaced and ethnically cleansed by the Arabs since 2003. Rapes in Darfur are widespread and endemic and slavetrading is a booming industry.

Our own government calls it genocide...something the UN hasn't quite gotten around to, though they do refer to `Human rights violations' and "heinous crimes". Not that they're prepared to actually do anything meaningful about it, even if it violates the UN Charter.
And this foul, murderous little man has enough contempt for every norm of civilized humanity,enough smug confidence in the backing he's receiving from Russia, China and the Muslim bloc in the UN to go before the cameras and say the jihad against Darfur is `no problem'.
Of course to him, it isn't. It's simply jihad, and the way things ought to be.
It is sickening how the norms of what most of us would call basic human decency fall by the wayside when someone has oil to sell.
Meanwhile, the ethnic cleansing of Darfur continues without a letup.
And I'm still wondering - where's all the outrage and protests over this? Where are all the hundreds of TV cameras and network talking heads like there were following the Israel/Lebanon war? Where are the marches?
If Islamic 'values' really are so much higher than the decadent West's,if Arabs really are "the best of peoples" [Qu'ran 3:100], then where's the outcry from CAIR, the MPAC, the Muslim council of Britain?
And these, of course, are the same people who have an absolute fixation on Israel and the Jews.
Is anyone else but me sick and tired of the hypocrisy and double standards of much of the Muslim world?
Are we prepared to continue to ignore this genocide just because the amoral hypocrites at the UN and in the Muslim world are?
If we want to stop this, and we're unwilling or unable for whatever reasons to intervene directly,the best thing we could do would be to airlift arms to the people in Darfur and the Black separatist movement in the South Sudan so that they can defend themselves. And we should do it N O W.
Darfur is one of the keys to the ongoing jihad in East Africa.
Once the mopping up of what's left of Darfur is completed by the Sudan's Islamist government, Christian Ethiopia will be faced with the prospect of jihad on two fronts, from Somalia (with Iranian sponsorship) and from the Sudan.
These people have nothing but rape, enslavement and ethnic cleansing facing them. But if they succeed in defending themselves, they stall the jihad in East Africa, and strengthen the anti-Jihad forces there. And we might just end up with a non-Muslim, oil producing ally.
After all of the wasted billions we've spent chasing the mythical `Arab Democracy' and trying to bribe the hearts and minds of people who hate us regardless, perhaps it's time we put some money and metal where it could actually benefit America.
If we're serious about fighting the War Against Jihad, we need to ally ourselves with people like the Kurds and the people of Darfur.
This is, yet again, an opportunity for the US to combat jihad on the ground...will we take it?
