I WAS ONCE A SUDANESE SLAVE
by Simon Deng
The Durban conference was organized by nations who are themselves guilty of the worst kind of oppression. It will not help the victims of racism. It will only isolate and target the Jewish state. The UN has itself become a tool against Israel. For over 50 years, 82 percent of the UN General Assembly emergency meetings have been about condemning one state – Israel. Hitler couldn’t have been made happier! By exaggerating Palestinian suffering, & blaming the Jews for it, the UN has muffled the cries of those who suffer on a far larger scale.
For over 50 years the indigenous black population of Sudan — Christians and Muslims alike — have been the victims of the brutal, racist Arab Muslim regimes in Khartoum. In South Sudan, my homeland, about 4-million innocent men, women and children were slaughtered from 1955 to 2005. Seven million were “ethnically cleansed.” The UN is so concerned about the so-called Palestinian refugees that they dedicated a separate agency for them. Meanwhile, my people, are relatively ignored. The UN refuses to tell the world the truth about the real causes of Sudan’s conflicts. It is rooted in Arab colonialism. In Darfur, everybody is Muslim. Everybody is Muslim because the Arabs invaded the North of Africa & converted the indigenous people to Islam. In the eyes of the Islamists in Khartoum, the Darfuris are not Muslim enough. The Darfuris don’t want to be Arabized. They love their own African customs. The Arab response is genocide! But nobody at the UN tells the truth about Darfur. In the Nuba Mountains, another region of Sudan, genocide is taking place as I speak. The Islamist regime in Khartoum is targeting the black Africans – Muslims and Christians. Nobody at the UN has told the truth about the Nuba Mountains.
Do you hear the UN condemn Arab racism against blacks? What Israel does is portrayed as a Western sin. But the truth is that the real sin happens when the West abandons us: the victims of Arab/Islamic apartheid. The UN knew about the enslavement of South Sudanese by the Arabs, yet it took UNICEF sixteen years to acknowledge what was happening, but the Arab League pressured UNICEF to backtrack & start criticize those who worked to liberate Sudanese slaves.
