Sudanese Defense Minister Accuses Jews of “Fueling” Darfur Conflict

Sudanese Defense Minister Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein told a Saudi newspaper that Jewish organizations are responsible for the conflict in Darfur. Which, according to Hussein, doesn’t actually exist. There is merely “friction between farmers and herders and shepherds.”

The root of the problem? Water, “which is used to exploit the differences and fuel the conflict.” This must be related to the stories from a few weeks ago claiming that global warming is to blame for genocide in Darfur.

Oh, wait. There is no genocide. Sorry, Mr. Hussein.
