Gulf Arab states call for imposing Libya no-fly zone
The Arab world has now suggested a no fly zone over Darfur.
Bombing upon civilians in Darfur continue. Last month 30,000 people fled attacks upon 13 villages. The newly displaced joined the 2.7 million people in wretched camps scattered across Darfur and eastern Chad.
It is interesting that when youth across the Arab world demanded freedom from tyranny and new, representational governance, the free world cheered them on. Yet when, in 2003, Darfur's people rose up demanding these same rights and freedoms, the world did nothing- even in the face of genocide.
