2.23.2005    |    Genocide
The word "genocide" has been overused of late. It's been fraudulently, and with malice aforethought, applied to the control of terrorists in the West Bank (remember Jenin and the mainstream media lies?). There are probably some idiots who think that the bringing of the first free election to Iraq is a form of genocide. The world has a short memory, and forgets what the genuine article is.

Nick Kristof continues to serve as our conscience in the matter of the murder of black Africans taking place in Sudan. In today's Times, he again reminds us in his column, this time with grisly photographs. In a secret African Union archive, Mr. Kristof cites this simple statement of intent on the part of the Arab government of Sudan:
"Change the demography of Darfur and make it void of African tribes," the document urges. It encourages "killing, burning villages and farms, terrorizing people, confiscating property from members of African tribes and forcing them from Darfur."
Sounds like ethnic cleansing at its finest to me. Although even a single life is precious, when the murders mount up to a sufficient magnitude, and all of those killed are of a particular ethnicity, and the stated intent is to eliminate that ethnicity, well, then I think we have made the case that genocide is in progress.

Those last two words are key: in progress. Once again, the world yawns, giving Arabs a pass at murder and mayhem. Is it because the victims are black Africans? Or because the perpetrators are Arabs? A little of both, I suspect. While the Arabs and their pet Euros froth at the mouth over minor offences in our war on terror, very little is seen or heard to stop this genocide by adherents of the "religion of peace."

As a Calvinist Christian, I'm never truly surprised by evil. What does surprise me, even shocks me, is that the so-called civilized world, which claims to be compassionate, turns a blind eye. The Arabs who commit this genocide are clearly in Satan's dominion -- as are we all who do not shine a light on this evil and stop it.

I urge all who may read this to write your Senator, your Representative, any who you may think might be able to make a difference -- tell them to do what they can to stop the killing.

About this site and the author

Welcome. My name is John Luke Rich, (very) struggling Christian. The focus here is Christianity in its many varieties, its fussing and feuding, how it impacts our lives and our society, with detours to consider it with other faiths (or lack thereof).

Call this blog my way of evangelizing on the internet.

Putting it differently, we're only here on this earth a short time. It's the rest of eternity that we should be most concerned about. Call it the care and feeding of our souls.

I was born Jewish, and born again in Christ Jesus over thirty years ago. First as a Roman Catholic; now a Calvinist by persuasion and a Baptist by denomination. But I'm hardly a poster boy for doctrinal rigidity.

I believe that Scripture is the rock on which all Christian churches must stand -- or sink if they are not so grounded. I believe that we are saved by faith, but hardly in a vacuum. That faith is a gift from God, through no agency on our part -- although we sometimes turn a deaf ear and choose to ignore God's knocking on the door.

To be Christian is to evangelize. Those who think it not their part to evangelize perhaps haven't truly understood what our Lord told us in Matthew 28. We must preach the Gospel as best we are able. Using words if necessary.

Though my faith waxes and wanes, it never seems to go away. Sometimes I wish it would, to give me some peace of mind. But then, Jesus never said that walking with Him was going to be easy...

Final note: I also blog as Jack Rich on cultural, political and other things over at Wrong Side of the Tracks

Thanks for stopping by.
