Here's today's Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
For the United Nations, the 80s hit Blame it on the Rain is more than a songits a political statement. The U.N.s Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, published an outrageous editorial last week blaming the Darfur genocide on climate change and drought. In an article that read more like a spoof from Saturday Night Live, he says the lack of rain in the Sudan caused tempers to flare and is ultimately responsible for the mass murder of millions of innocent people. Ban said, The Darfur conflict began as an [environmental] crisis. What an absurd statement! The problem in the Sudan is theologynot ecology. When African Arabs started killing off non-Arabs, the reason had nothing to do with global warming and everything to do with Islams radical crusade. If climate change is what sparks ethnic cleansing, where was the Holocaust heat wave? Unfortunately, global warming has become an international scapegoat. Rather than deal with the real problems, like Muslim-sponsored terrorism, the U.N. and other liberals are willing to blame everything on the environment.
