We have an obligation to speak out against genocide. Since 2003, B’nai B’rith has been in efforts to end the crisis. It is impossible to know exact numbers, but most experts agree that at least 300,000 people have been killed since the conflict began seven years ago, and about a million displaced as they fled to avoid the brutality and seek safe haven, often in squalid refugee camps in neighboring nations.
In the letter, Glick and Mariaschin further noted: “As the fifth anniversary of the CPA nears, continued U.S. leadership is needed not only to facilitate concurrence on outstanding CPA issues, but to build the multilateral coalition necessary to foster such agreement and enforce compliance by both sides with their longstanding commitments.”
It is imperative that U.S. involvement on this issue comes from the highest levels. Therefore, B’nai B’rith is asking President Obama and Clinton to personally lead U.S. peace efforts regarding Sudan.
