  • Genocide 2000AD

    It was an ordinary day for 11-year-old Randa. A student at a grade school in southern Sudan, Randa had just sat down to begin her English lesson. It was the last thing Randa ever did. Moments later, Russian-made bombers began dropping anti-personnel bombs all over the school. Randa and 13 of her classmates were killed, along with their teacher. Some were decapitated by flying shrapnel. Other children had arms and legs torn from their bodies.

    It was just an ordinary day for Sudan's radical Muslim regime. As a government spokesman put it, "The bombs landed where they were supposed to land."

    It's because of atrocities like these that human rights workers in the U.S. are launching The Sudan Campaign, beginning next Tuesday, May 23, 2000. It's a two-week drive to publicize the slavery, persecution, and genocide being inflicted upon millions of Sudanese Christians by the militant Muslim government.

    A broad coalition of human rights groups will participate in the campaign. Thousands will engage in prayer vigils, peaceful protests, teach-ins, and a march to the White House to petition the President. Colorado school teacher Barbara Vogel is bringing her class of fourth-graders -- pint-sized abolitionists who raise money to buy the freedom of Sudanese slaves. They've done more than most Congressmen to ease the suffering of Sudanese Christians.

    Dr. Charles Jacobs, director of the campaign, says the most important goal is to get President Clinton to pressure Sudanese leaders to improve human rights. The president's own Commission on International Religious Freedom tells the horrific story. Its report details the bombing of schools and churches -- rape, murder, starvation, and the enslavement of Christian populations. Two million people have already been killed.

    These are horrors almost too great to imagine. And after all, Sudan is far away from our comfortable lives in America. We see very little on the news about what's going on there. Maybe that's why, a few months ago, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told human rights workers a blunt truth: That the Sudan issue is not "marketable" to the American people.

    You and I have to do everything we can to MAKE this issue marketable -- not only to ordinary citizens but to our poll-driven President and Mrs. Albright. Instead of letting them think of Sudan's victims as a vast blur of anonymous people, we have to make little Randa, her classmates, and her teacher just as real as those 13 children and one teacher murdered at an American school, Columbine.

    We must help them understand that the parents of Randa and her "unmarketable" classmates are just as grief-stricken as those Colorado parents.

    Oh come on-like Christians haven't been doing this since the begining of time. Lets see, OK- remember whan the King of Spain said to his conquistadores go and find me land, kidnap two of the natives so that we may learn their language, then we will kill any oposing forces and convert these people to Christianity. Then Africa was invaded and then Borinquen- in the name of the Lord - your lord they killed, robbed and enslave millions of people whose beliefs were different!

    OK I got another one- more resent, a lilly white Christian group says- oh those people in Africa don't know how to live- lets go and make them Christians so that they can be more like us. Now note that these people did war but no where close to that of our Christian Nation and now they are all dying of AIDs- which they never had until those damn Christian groups went to convert a people who were happy and better off with their original way of life!

      ChiRican, Christians have not been killing anyone. Power hungry, greedy men in search of riches and fame kill people under the pretense that they are christian. Also the term Christian nowadays refers to many different denominations. Catholics are the ones killing people and who have been killing people for centuries.
