Saving the slaves - The Denver Post

Saving the slaves - The Denver Post

If you have seen the movie Amazing Grace you might be think the slave trade ended in 1807 but you would be wrong. Since the Quran permits killing and enslavement of infidels, Janaweed (devil on horseback) and Arab slave traders have been killing and capturing Christians and animists in the Sudan. Read the article if you dare because if you do then you cannot say you do not know.

In the Tao Te Ching there are these very wise lines:
When Tao is lost, there is goodness
When goodness is lost, there is kindness
When kindness is lost, there is justice
When justice is lost, there is ritual
Now ritual is the husk of faith and loyalty, the beginning of confusion.

From time to time the United Nations goes through the ritual of condemning genocide and ordering sanctions against Sudan (which are vetoed by China) and the International Court of Justice issues indictments but chaos in Dafur continues.
