Why Jews shouldn't get involved with Darfur

As this article makes clear, any attempt by Jewish organizations, however well-intentioned, to protest against atrocities committed by an Arab Muslim government only plays into the regime's hands. Instantly, the allegations become an Israeli plot to discredit and undermine an Arab state.

This is true no matter how many international human rights groups take the same position, and no matter how well founded the criticisms.

If conscientious Jews really want to help the victims of the Sudanese regime, they should step aside and let others lead the charge.
