500 Rapes

Not satisfied with letting UN workers get in on all the rape and child molestation, Medecins Sans Frontieres takes advantage of the Sudanese.

Sudan arrested the local head of an international aid agency on Monday over a report on hundreds of rapes in Darfur in the first such action against a top relief worker since a rebellion in the area began in 2003.

Paul Foreman, the country head of the Dutch branch of aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), told Reuters he had been arrested but was being freed on bail.

MSF Holland expressed outrage at the arrest.

Sudan’s attorney-general, Mohamed Farid, told Reuters authorities had opened a criminal case over MSF Holland’s report in March detailing 500 rapes over 4-1/2 months in Darfur. He said the report was false.

The MSF Holland report said its doctors working in Sudan’s western Darfur area, where tens of thousands have been killed and more than 2 million forced from their homes, had medical evidence of the rapes in the western Sudanese region.

Of course, you won’t hear any righteous indignation coming from Amnesty International or any of the other European human rights groups.  No, rapes and molestations by UN and humanitarian groups are no big deal.  But wherever US troops make Arabs put underwear on their heads, and (allegedly) flush Korans, you’ll hear cries of “Gulag!”

Update: Okay, I’m retarded.  I read the article wrong.  I mistakenly thought that Foreman had been arrested for his participation in a number of rapes.  Given the penchant that UN forces and workers have for taking part in such activities, it wasn’t too much of a stretch for me to believe that MSF workers were doing it as well.  Apologies.
