Darfur Conflict Grimmer by the Day

Posted by thelamp on October 26, 2006

The people of Darfur need prayers from around the world. The battlefield in Darfur is blood-soaked. At least 200,000 people have died since early 2003 –many of hunger and disease – as a result of a campaign of violence that compassionate leaders and others have called genocide.

Sudan has blocked a United Nations force from entering Darfur to protect the 2.5 million people forced from their homes. For the first time in more than two years, rebels fighting the government for more autonomy are making brazen, direct and successful attacks on soldiers, and they are declaring that all previous cease-fires are no longer in effect.

“In Darfur, the civilians are paying the highest price for the continued violence,” said Pastor Rod Parsley, who is conducting humanitarian efforts to ease the devastating effects the war is having on Sudanese people.

The latest peace agreement, signed in May and heavily backed by the United States but approved by only one rebel faction and the Sudanese government, is in disarray. CMC members are urged to continue prayers that peace can be obtained before the devastation is compounded by more lost lives.
