And, of course, there must be a theory that the Jews are behind the tragedy in Darfur. Not the Muslims who are doing the actual killings. Not the Sudanese government that's letting it happen, and helping when it can. No, of course not. It's the Jews.
That, at least, is the story being told by the Sudanese defense minister. Some quotes:
Sudan's defense minister, Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein, has accused "24 Jewish organizations" of "fueling the conflict in Darfur" last week in an interview with a Saudi newspaper.
And, some elaboration:
"The Darfur issue is being fuelled by 24 Jewish organizations, who are making the largest amount of noise over the issue, and using the Holocaust in their campaigning," the Sudanese defense minister replied.
And then, of course, there's that insidious Jewish control over British and American policy:
Are these Jewish groups supporting (the rebels) financially?," the interviewer from Okaz asked Hussein.
"Yes, they provide political and material support through their control over the media and across American and British circles," Hussein said, adding that Jewish groups were using "all means to fuel these conflicts."
And in certain circles, this will be taken as fact. Amazing.
