Hypocrisy, thy name is United Nations

Saw this article in the news:

Thirteen years after Bosnia filed the case with the International Court of Justice, its lawyers will lay out their lawsuit against Serbia and Montenegro – the successor state for the defunct Yugoslavia – charging it with a premeditated attempt to destroy Bosnia’s Muslim population, in whole or part.

“Not since the end of the Second World War and the revelations of the horrors of Nazi Germany’s ‘Final Solution’ has Europe witnessed the utter destruction of a people, for no other reason than they belong to a particular national ethnical, racial, and religious group as such,” said the lawsuit’s opening paragraph, drafted for the Bosnian government by American lawyer Francis A. Boyle.

… and my first thought was, “Gee, have we forgotten about Darfur already?”

Gary Farber has the issue covered thoroughly. Scroll down and you’ll see dozens of links.

I guess neither Rwanda nor Darfur comes under the heading of genocide. What about the Cambodian genocide? No? Why is that? Because the victims weren’t Muslims?

What a load of crap.

  1. 13 years? How long did it take them to get to the anti-terror fence? But what’s worse anyway? Jews protecting themselves!

    To be fair, though, it says Europe. Noen of those other genocides occured in Europe.

  5. ““Not since the end of the Second World War and the revelations of the horrors of Nazi Germany’s ‘Final Solution’ has Europe witnessed the utter destruction of a people, for no other reason than they belong to a particular national ethnical, racial, and religious group as such,” said the lawsuit’s opening paragraph, drafted for the Bosnian government by American lawyer Francis A.

    Not to be ungrateful for the link, since I’m grateful, and particularly grateful for the coverage of the Darfur issue, but the above paragraph clearly refers to genocide in Europe. That’s why it’s phrased that way. That’s why neither Darfur nor Rwanda are referred to. This is a commonplace statement and observation that many people and organizations focused on genocide have made many times.

  6. Yeah, I see that now. Oops.

    My knee-jerk reaction to the UN and genocide is, well, the UN has done nothing to stop any of the horrendous acts that have occurred since the end of WWII.

    As many of your links no doubt point out.

    Actually, aren’t Darfurians Muslim?

    The Bosnian near-genocide could have been worse than Rwanda though if NATO did not intervene (Serbs have guns, tanks and firepower; Hutus have machetes and 3-decade old rifles).

    BTW, I would think that the Cambodian masacres during the Khmer Rouge is a democide; most of those killed are Khmers.
