ASMARA, Eritrea -- Persons working with aid organizations
assisting the victims of the Darfur conflict have passed on the news that they
have confirmed through their contacts in the so called �Save Darfur Coalition�
that millions of dollars raised to help the Darfur refugees have ended up in
Israeli bank accounts. These accounts help fund programs that include
illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.
These sources inside the pro-Israel organizations that
control the �Save Darfur Coalition� estimate that over $100 million was raised
for Darfur, though the exact amount may never be known due to the murky nature
of the financial statements these organizations submit. What is known is that
over half the money raised for Darfur was consumed by �operational expenses�
for these organizations, meaning bloated salaries, expense
accounts and the multimillion dollar publicity
campaign that helped generate the donations. Only about 10 percent of the
donations received ever made it to the Darfur refugees, with several million
ending up in Israeli bank accounts.
The Darfur funds were diverted to Israel by either
co-mingling the funds with those used to support the Israeli projects or
through a more complex system of grants to other �aid� or �relief�
organizations that allowed the eventual destination of the funds to be almost
impossible to trace.
For some time now, aid workers in Darfur have been quietly
pressuring the Save Darfur Coalition to turn over more of the tens of millions
of dollars they have been collecting on the behalf of the Sudanese people in Darfur.
People working inside the organizations that make up the coalition became upset
when they discovered that aid raised on behalf of Darfur was being diverted to
Israel and began supplying information to the aid workers on the ground in Darfur.
Some of these aid workers finally broke their silence on the matter and passed
on to us what they had confirmed from these Save Darfur insiders.
As previously reported, the so-called �Darfur Genocide� was
a myth, or more accurately, a fraud, perpetuated by the Western media and
governments along with the pro-Israel �human rights� NGOs to raise over a $100
million. UN and international aid workers involved in the Darfur relief effort
are quietly proud of the fact that Darfur refugees are the beneficiaries of one
of, if not the largest, best run relief works in history. These aid workers
also acknowledge the fact that the Sudanese government played a critical role
in support of the relief effort, which could not have succeeded without such
support. It doesn�t add up that, on one hand, the Sudanese government was
committing genocide against the people of Darfur while at the same time playing
a critical role in operating the largest best run relief works in history in
support of the Darfur people.
As previously reported, a Western funded genocide is being
committed in the Ethiopian Ogaden by the Ethiopian government, but no
genocide has ever been committed in Darfur. The whole �Darfur Genocide�
campaign is nothing more than a smokescreen to vilify the Sudanese government
in an attempt to promote Western military intervention in oil and mineral rich
Sudan, Africa�s largest and potentially wealthiest country, as well as to help
divert attention from the real, Western-funded genocide being carried out in
the Ogaden by the Western cop on the beat in East Africa, Ethiopia.
The brazenness and breadth of this propaganda campaign has
even surprised experienced observers of the long, dirty history of aid
diversion in the Horn of Africa. Western governments, the UN, the Western
media, even Hollywood became part of the act with story lines �exposing� the Darfur
�genocide� appearing in dramas such as Boston
Legal amongst others.
Bernie Maddoff went to prison for his fraud, but it is
highly unlikely that an investigation will be launched into the �Darfur
Genocide� scam. And only an investigation by the US Justice
Department has the power to search, seize and subpoena that will be
required to expose this whole criminal fraud.
So next time you hear about a campaign to �save� Africans be
suspicious and remember just how big a lie was told about Darfur and how your
hard earned money ended up somewhere you least expected, helping building
Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.
