The French writer, Bernard-Henri LEVY, traveled into the region of Amarai, 400 kilometers within Darfur, Sudan at the beginning of March 2007

Bernard-Henri LEVY :  « If we are incapable of stopping the massacre, if we have neither the power nor the willpower to sanction the terrorist regime of Sudan…should we not, at least, help those who defend the people and help by arming them? (The Sudan Liberation Army ndlr) I remember the school destroyed in Deissa where they showed me the classes of girls beside the classes of boys. And the idea came to me that maybe, after all, there is another characteristic of this war – and another reason to mobilize: radical Islam against moderate Islam. This same regime gave asylum to Osama Bin Laden at the end of the ‘90’s when the Muslim populations rebelled against Islam. In the heart of Africa, in its darkness of which it can become, if we do nothing, there will be the first genocide of the 21st century ».

The photographs illustrate the French writer talking with the SLA, the Sudanese Liberation Army and visiting different villages attacks by the janjaweed. 
The Islamic government regime in Khartoum is supported by the “Arab” Muslim tribes known as the Janjaweed militia (armed men on horses) who massacre the “African” Muslim tribes who are at odds with the government in Darfur and in the neighbouring country of Chad.
According to UN estimates, nearly 200,000 persons have died from this war and its consequences, and more than 2 million people have been displaced. Former UN Secretary-General Khofi Annan and his successor, Bank Ki-Moon, have made the Darfur crisis a priority for the United Nations. UN investigators for war crimes and crimes against humanity have established that the Sudanese government is responsible for the atrocities committed against the civilian population of Darfur for the past four years.
