Genocide and Development in Africa

By William Recant

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2007

The author, Assistant Executive Vice-President of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, asserts that genocide has no geographic, ethnic or cultural boundaries and the cry "never again" rings hollow in the face of what is taking place today in Darfur, Sudan. We should take pride in the fact that Jewish communal leaders and young people have been at the forefront of this effort. However, unless the global village awakens and deters state-sponsored murderous actions, true developments will not be possible.
