Press Statement

by the AU Ceasefire Commission on the killing of an AMIS Civpol monitor

The AU Ceasefire Commission is shocked by the news of the killing of an AMIS CIVPOL monitor who was shot dead today 1 February 2007 by unknown gunmen who snatched the AMIS vehicle in which the officer with two other colleagues were riding in.

The Ceasefire Commission condemns the shooting of the officer who was unarmed and performing his normal patrol duty in an IDP camp at the time.

It is to be recalled that on 10 December 2006 an AMIS military officer was abducted along with his vehicle by unknown persons and has not been found to date. Also, on 22 December 2006 and on 26 January 2007 AMIS vehicles were hijacked by unknown persons.

AMIS is calling on the perpetrators to desist from such ruthless acts and is strongly appealing to them to handover the officer unconditionally and return the vehicles they have snatched without further delay.

Once again the AU Ceasefire Commission would like to remind the perpetrators that AMIS is here to help Sudan make peace and is not part of the conflict in Darfur.

The Wordless Voice of Virtue

Whenever a heart has become so hard
that Virtue cries till tearless
hatred births a slaughters gore
then poisons weary justice

Revenge is the fuel for the fires of Hell
thus Satan fears forgiveness
for grace not only quells his flames
it weakens his dominion

True hearted Virtue's the mother of shame
through grace, disgrace will cease
her wordless silent voice proclaims

Through ............. Grace ............... Peace

Save Darfur

This whole thing is just another attempt by certain elements in American society and abroad to continue their anti-Muslim, anti-Arab and oil mongering campaign. Back to the playbook they go, when America sent CIA and arms under the cover of the Peace Corp in the same region. The U.S. government and their "Save Darfur" propagandists have the temerity to even bring race into the equation, but only by lying. The vast majority of the people are Black Arabic speaking Muslims and Black Muslims that speak tribal languages. The remaining small groups of animist and Christians in the very south of the country had been living without the attention of America or the majority of Sudanese until America saw its evil little opening, using drop offs of food and guns to its supported militia groups in the hunger ravaged Congo (where America and Western Europe has just finished creating genocide to keep its hands on that nations resources) to entice them across the border to augment the population. This is a man made crisis and America and its satellite buddy in the Middle East that need not be named, is using "crisis" as an excuse to send in their people or their little trained African mercenaries parading as "peace keepers". The argument used is that the crisis is more important than sovereignty. If that is the case then let's have some nations come and take over our ghettos and claim Louisiana as their new mandate. Next thing you know this blog will be worried about Zimbabweans hungry from sanctions because that evil dictator man took some of the white colonists’ plantations away to give to those awful negroes. Word to the wise- check who started this campaign and who is pushing it. We have killed and destroyed enough for these people, it is time to stop.

I am horrified at the response of any God loving, Muslim, Christian, etc,.. that finally the President of the United States is doing the right thing despite UN inaction and he still gets flack. Fact is we seem to be the only country immune to econmic issues that is trying to build a peaceful world!

Seven Nigerian soldiers were killed in Darfur and they are not the first Nigerians to be killed in Darfur.

I may be forced to publish the horrible and terrible atrocities of the Sudanese government.
But we must support the UN/AU, so that Sudan will not degenerate into another Iraq.

God help us.

Even though it's a good message to send out that they are there to make peace, obviously the Janjaweed and others sent out to kill have no value for human life to begin with.
