The United States has played an influential role in the country. President Kiir often wears the cowboy hat that George W. Bush gave to him. The United States has also taken sides in the war.

To keep the weapons flowing, the Obama administration spent years blocking calls for an arms embargo. During another major crisis in , the Obama administration continued to side with President Kiir. After Machar had been chased out of the country, U. In a recent report published by the U.

Holocaust Memorial Museum, Temin argued that some of the worst violence could have been avoided if the Obama administration had implemented an arms embargo early in the conflict and refrained from siding so consistently with President Kiir. Just exactly when is genocide not okay with us? Just exactly which group of people can we turn our backs on and the definition of genocide fits our values? A moral nation needs to stand up for justice. Genocide flourishes when there is no accountability.

Where there is a will there is always a way. Where there is no will there is never a way. I have never chosen silence regarding Sudan. I cannot imagine lifting sanctions is the honorable thing to do. How can this administration? Omar Hassan Al Bashir is a suspect at large from the International Criminal Court for 10 counts of crimes: 5 counts of crimes against humanity: murder, extermination, forcible transfer, torture, and rape; 2 counts of war crimes: intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population, 3 counts of genocide. The legacy of President Obama and his administration regarding Sudan is already poor, lifting sanctions would make the legacy even worse.

It makes me cry sometimes to myself and to God, asking him did you create all humans equally in the universe. If the US allows this to happen, then it will mean that they give the government of Sudan a green light to continue to commit the worst atrocities in Dafur and in Southern Kordafan and the Blue Nile region as well. It is important to keep the sanctions until the Sudan government has fully accepted peace and is allowing access to humanitarian aid into the region. This [latest] massacre is reminding all of the international stakeholders of the need for civilian protection in Sudan rather than rewarding General Bashir and casting a blind eye on his war crimes.

This could be your greatest legacy. We ask in the strongest possible terms that you do not lift the sanctions on Sudan. As you know, the government of Sudan often says they will abide by agreements and then ignore them. We ask that you not reward the Sudanese government for allowing aid in when they should never have stopped aid in the first place. While all injustice and human suffering concerns us, as Jewish Americans, crimes of hatred and genocide are especially heinous and we believe that there must be NO appeasement where such crimes are concerned.

We human beings are made in the image of God, and when humans are denigrated, humiliated, and persecuted, the sanctity of human life is threatened everywhere. We all are responsible for the sins of our society. I cannot, nor can you, dare to hide in our respective gardens when people scream in pain! Circumcise your hearts and listen to the calls of the most vulnerable who are in pain and who are bleeding! They are asking, where are you? President, where are you? Where are we all? Crimes against the state charges carry the death penalty.

Ambassador Eng. Box Djibouti, Republic of Djibouti. We, the undersigned South Sudanese, human rights organizations, scholars and friends of South Sudan, write to express our grave concern regarding the deteriorating crisis in South Sudan. The actions of the actors in the South Sudanese conflict have produced an outcome that has raised the possibility of genocide as shown by the recent increase in ethnically-targeted attacks in the country. Polarized communities are also increasingly using various social media platforms to spew hate speech. This rhetoric is inciting violence and animosity in a period when bridge-building is desperately needed.

All indications point to the fact that the threat of genocide will only increase in the days ahead.

Remember South Sudan? Washington Would Prefer Not to

Peace in South Sudan and stability in the region are entirely dependent on the respect for the rule of law and the coexistence of communities in mutually complementary terms. The competency and legacy of your organizations and more importantly, the life or death of innocent South Sudanese will be determined by the actions you choose to take.

Do not let another genocide happen on your watch. Please act now. Isaac K. Learning Victory, Inc. South Sudan Reborn Inc. Girshab, Director General, Khartoum, Sudan. Ahmed H. Hamid E. Asha Khalil Elkarib , Dr.
