You may recall the Janjaweed Arab militia — An Armed Devil Mounted on a Horse? They have returned to Sudan. With the help of the Saudis and the Emirates, Hemeti, one of the heinous Janjaweed Commanders, is taking over Sudan and cracking down on the pro-democracy Sudanese people — slaughtering them in the street, tossing bodies into The Nile, raiding homes to arrest people, and defying the African Union.

“Thowra!” the crowd shouts — Arabic for “revolution.”

Hemeti (aka. Muhammad Hamdan Dagalo) is a mercenary warlord fighting for money paid by outsiders. Among his crimes, Hemeti is responsible for importing child soldiers to Yemen to fight on behalf of oil-rich countries. He enslaves child soldiers from nomadic Arabic tribes in Chad, Libya, central Africa, and Mali.

Now the Janjaweed militia has spread to Sudan’s capital and other regions. You must remember the Janjaweed role in The Darfur Genocide resulting in the death of 300,000, the displacement of 4.7 million citizens, and innumerable mass rape rampages.
