Genocide in Non-White Countries is OK

   The oft-chanted “Never Again” is in fact “Again and Again”

The diplomat who was president of the U.N. Security Council in April 1994 (Former New Zealand ambassador Colin Keating) apologized Wednesday for the council’s refusal to recognize that genocide was taking place in Rwanda and for doing nothing to halt the slaughter of more than one million people. The source for this report is the Associated Press.

Let’s review the history of world concern over genocide starting with Adolph Hitler and his plan to kill every Jew in the world. He successfully killed 6 million Jews and millions of others who did not accede to his views.

PBS posted this commentary on-line. “ Genocide has occurred so often and so uncontested in the last fifty years that an epithet more apt in describing recent events than the oft-chanted “Never Again” is in fact “Again and Again.” The gap between the promise and the practice of the last fifty years is dispiriting indeed. How can this be?”

“In 1948 the member states of the United Nations General Assembly — repulsed and emboldened by the sinister scale and intent of the crimes they had just witnessed — unanimously passed the Genocide Convention. Signatories agreed to suppress and punish perpetrators who slaughtered victims simply because they belonged to an “undesirable” national, ethnic, or religious group.”

What has really happened? With the exception of the United States bombing to stop the killing of Bosnian Muslims, no efforts have been made to stop genocide killing since that 1948 agreement.

Here is a list of the largest mass killing events since WWII. Notice that all of these events occurred in Asia and Africa. Killing in Europe is stopped. Is race an issue?  How dare I suggest that it is!

Nigerian Civil War                  1 million to 3 million deaths

Cambodian Genocide           1 million to 3 million deaths

Rwandan Genocide                500,000 to 1 million deaths

A message has been sent by the most powerful countries in the world!
