Your mentioning Darfur in your blogging is imperative. And as doubtless you have noticed, blogging volume regarding Darfur has plummeted. Thank you for your efforts.

We are hopelessly stalled in Saving Darfur. But it is only hopeless if we-the-citizens continue to be bystanders risking little or no cost to ourselves.

Please help promote what must fast become our role models; nothing less will stop the Genocide:

Regarding Darfur, it's good to see some recognition of the bloodshed in Sudan, after years of the Muslims in the north slaughtering the Christians in the south. The south is now a wasteland, and the bloodshed has all moved north. Now it's a racist slaughter, Muslims slaughtering Muslims, with the Arab Muslims slaughtering the black African Muslims in Darfur. I'm not sure what it is that evangelicals can be expected to do, considering that the worldwide Muslim community has shown no ability and little desire to end the genocide. But I know personally of evangelicals who are working hard in the bombed-out south of Sudan (now that the north is ignoring it), building clinics and schools and churches. There is a four year window until the scheduled vote in which the south will likely secede from the north, at which time the north-on-south bloodshed will likely start up again.
