    Our Muslim friends are like a backwards violent little brother six hundred years younger than the Catholic big brother.

    So they're committing exactly the same mistakes. Maybe this time in history will be viewed as poorly as the Catholic Inquisition.

    I didn't realize murder and evil were graded on a curve. Murdering and crucifying people is BAD. Full stop. End of story. Whatever anyone else has done is completely irrelevent to judging these particular crimes.

    I notice that you, on the other hand, only mention the Christians killed and not the Muslims of different sects or other non-Christians. Why is that.

    The people of Darfur are Muslims, not Christians. Christians and animists live in the southern part of Sudan.

    The government of Sudan provides support for militiamen in Darfur and, allegedly, for the Lord's Resistance Army. Pursuing racist policies and funding genocide are not appropriate courses of action for any government, Islamic or otherwise. I hope they're overthrown by the JEM. Unfortunately, the government seems to be supported by powerful political entities like the Arab League and China...

    You are right, I was mistaken. Both are Muslim.

    I would argue that the conflict is racial, not religious, in nature. The Janjaweed are of Arab/Egyptian descent and speak Arabic, while the Furians are darker-skinned Africans that speak Fur.

    I agree that there is certainly an element of racism present in the conflict. However, I'd argue that the primary dispute is over the region's relatively low amount of arable land. Ethnic differences simply make the "enemy" more easily identifiable and give the perpetrators a reason to hate their victims.

    One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.
