The Darfur region is plagued with violence, rape, and corruption. Rebel groups are at a constant battle with the Sudanese government which has displaced thousands of villagers and their villages.

THE DARFUR GENOCIDE AT TEN YEARS: A Reckoning.

THE DARFUR GENOCIDE AT TEN YEARS: A Reckoning. | Malik Darfur | Scoop.it
Suhail Malik's insight:

The DARFUR GENOCIDE AT TEN YEARS article talks about the Darfur Genocide having no end to it. It has been estimated that about half million people have died due to the effects of war. Villages are being burnt, wiped off, raped, and displaced due to this ongoing war. In 2003, two Darfuri rebel movements- the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM)- took up arms against the Sudanese government, complaining about the marginalization of the area and the failure to protect sedentary people from attacks by nomads. The government of Sudan responded by unleashing Arab militias known as Janjaweed, or “devils on horseback”. Sudanese forces and Janjaweed militia attacked hundreds of villages throughout Darfur. Over 400 villages were completely destroyed and millions of civilians were forced to flee their homes. Also the article talks about how the UN, AU, and the Darfur government are trying their best to stop the Darfur rebel groups from attacking the government, but they are constantly failing.

Sick of Promises: The UN Calls It 'The World's Worst Humanitarian Crisis'. But What Is Causing The Violence in Darfur, and Why Hasn't The World Acted to Stop It? Jess Worth Goes In Search of Answers. | Malik Darfur | Scoop.it
Suhail Malik's insight:

The Magazine article starts off by interviewing two people, a man and a Woman. Both explain the struggles they went to escape from the government and the rebel group attacks. They talk about how they escaped and survived for days without any food and how they saved many through their journey of getting to the refugee camp. Both want the international committee to help solve the problems in Darfur and to help the hundreds of people that are dying day by day. An estimated 400,000 Darfurians have been killed. Three million--half the population--have been displaced. Humanitarian agencies have limited access and are barely able to operate, the region is so dangerous. Now the conflict is escalating, spilling over into Chad and Central African Republic, displacing tens of thousands more and threatening to destabilize the entire region. The rest of the world has largely stood aside and watched.

I am the translator who has taken journalists into dangerous Darfur. It is my intention now to take you there in this book, if you have t...
Suhail Malik's insight:

For my statement of scope I will be focusing on the cause of Darfur genocide in the 2000's, Contemporary cultures/traditions of Darfur, Resistance/ aid groups in Darfur in 2000's. Not many people now about the genocide in Darfur, which is killing thousands or people and leaving thousands homeless. “The village was mostly gone—sixty or so scorched black spots where a whole world once celebrated”(60). This genocide is ruining villages where sacred traditions, cultures, and religions used to be practiced. These villages meant the whole world to the tribesman, but gunshots and bombings are ruining the lives of these people. “The fact that I spoke Zaghawa, Arabic, and English made me useful to the aid people who were streaming into Chad”(68). Aid groups were storming into Chad and Darfur to help the victims of the genocide. Daoud Used his ability to speak many languages to guide the aid groups to the villages that need the most help. Also this shows the efforts of aid groups in Chad and Darfur during the genocide which helped Daoud show to the world the Darfur genocide. "When we caught up with our people we men mostly together with the wounded defenders, going back and forth to the women for the food and for the traditional medicine and teas they would prepare"(146). The men and women f the village might have lost their homes, but they still kept their traditions with them even during a time of bloodshed and death. This shows that traditions are still kept no matter what the circumstance is.

Genocide in Darfur? What genocide?

Genocide in Darfur? What genocide? | Malik Darfur | Scoop.it
Suhail Malik's insight:

The news article talks about how the government is handling the war in Darfur. It starts off by two men talking about how great the government is and all it has done to help the African country, but it has done nothing to help Darfur. The International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor sought an arrest warrant for Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, accusing him of genocide and crimes against humanity for the slaughter of up to 35,000 non-Arab civilians in Darfur and the related deaths and displacements of tens of thousands more. Many people outside of Darfur forgot about Darfur as a region in African, they don’t recognize the war that is happening between the government. Also the article talks about how many civilians are scared to even talk about the problems in Darfur due to the government threatening to kill them.

UNICEF

UNICEF | Malik Darfur | Scoop.it
Suhail Malik's insight:

UNICEF has maintained a significant humanitarian operation in Darfur since the crisis began in 2003. Over the years, UNICEF has helped scores of children and families with lifesaving supplies and initiatives. For the past year, UNICEF has had to scale up its work to fill the gaps in humanitarian assistance left by the forced re-movement of the groups by The Sudanese government in March 2009. 43% of all children in Darfur who were treated for severe acute malnutrition received support by UNICEF's efforts as the "provider of last resort" under an agreement with the government.

The Devil Came On A Horseback (Djanjaweed Documentary) - YouTube

Suhail Malik's insight:

The Devil Came on Horseback is a first-person account of the Genocide in Darfur. Former U.S. Marine Corps Captain Brian Steidle gives his accounts of the violence occurring in Southern Darfur. Captain Brian Steidle joined the African Union in 2004 to help monitor the cease-fire in Sudan and Darfur. Captain Brian Steidle shows his transformation as an Officer, reporter, and finally activist as he travels through Darfur. Devastated and shocked with horror by the Janjaweed-driven genocide in the western region of the country (which has claimed 400,000 lives), Steidle set out to work against this corruption. Steidle began to work toward in bringing social change not through violence but through peaceful, humanitarian efforts. His efforts carried him to a myriad of countries and multiple continents; throughout, Steidle took over 1,000 photographs to document the horrors and spreading awareness of this crisis to the remainder of the world and defeating the Sudanese government.

Suhail Malik's insight:

Tears Of The Desert shows a great parallel between Daoud Haris The Translator. Tears Of The Desert describes the horrors of the Darfur Genocide and takes the reader through Halima Bashirs adventure. THhis book shows great similarites in which a reader would like because it shows hardship, violence, and the need to help others throughout the book just likeThe Translator.
