Holy Interventions and Children of a Lesser God

The Archbishop of York, the second highest cleric in the Church of England, second only to the Archbishop of Canterbury, called for Mr Mugabe and his allies to be overthrown so they can stand trial in The Hague: “The time to remove them from power has come.”

The time has come for Robert Mugabe to answer for his crimes against humanity, against his countrymen and women and for justice to be done. The winds of change that once brought hope to Zimbabwe and its neighbours have become a hurricane of destruction with the outbreak of cholera, destitution, starvation and systemic abuse of power by the state. Robert Mugabe and his henchmen must now take their rightful place in The Hague and answer for their actions.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, said African nations should come together to use military force if Mr Mugabe refused to go. US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, agrees. She said it was “well past time” for Mr Mugabe to go.

UK PM Gordon Brown also agrees and called the Zimbabwean government a “blood-stained regime“: “We must stand together to defend human rights and democracy, to say firmly to Mugabe that enough is enough”

The spiritual leaders of the Church of England are crossing an ocean of blood to join the greatest mass murderers of our times in a spectacularly indecent show of hypocrisy. The notorious humanitarian interventions, sponsored by Human Rights Watch and welcomed by the lib-left intelligentsia, have finally got the blessing of the holy men.

The Church of England’s message is clear: in Iraq and Afghanistan they’re children of a lesser god.

    More apologetics for a thuggish regime. For a Marxist vs. the horrors of the Mugabe regime read Patrick Bond who posts on Marxmail…or read the blog from the South African Communist Party, some of whose cadre are horrified at the coddling of Mugabe by Mbeki.

    world plutos want to get afrika back. they once had every inch of it.
    and then they put two people, who cannot get along, in one kitchen.
    and they then keep peace; siding w. one people and later siding w. the other.
    no rhyme or reason needed to be applied.
    this is also happened in afghanistan and iraq. while the overlings keep peace amongst bad/primitive peoples of ex-yuga, rwanda, s. africa, they condemn the people they rule over as vicious, dumb, of lesser value. thnx

    Thank you very much Dissident Voice for publishing my little blog entry. Interested readers may also read:

    Open letter to Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York

    (…) Instead of calling for just another war of aggression, another breach of the United Nations Charter, why didn’t you call to bring to justice those leaders you name in your article, together with Tony Blair and George Bush? Iraq and Afghanistan have been crying out for justice for many years; shouldn’t those war criminals take their rightful place in the Hague and answer for their actions? (…)

    most or all of the pious people have been mistaught. thus one can expect them to continue to do wrongs to many nations and people.
    christians do now more damage than any other pious people only because they r the strongest econo-militarily.
    once a person is intolerant of a person who has a different set of principles, that person will always try to inflict injury on a dissenter.
    so, christians will continue to support US/UK/Isr crimes.
    and if muslims et al do not obtain econo-military equilibrium w. christian world, they may be destined for dust bin or cry uncle and convert to christianity. thnx

    Thanks Lance. This from a 2007 article in the New Scientist:

    “A cholera epidemic has been on the cards since Iraqi water treatment plants were destroyed in the 1991 Gulf war. In 2003 the WHO reported that the UN trade embargo had prevented repairs and as a result. Now one of these outbreaks seems to be spreading out of control.”

    Cholera outbreak in Iraq could be first of many
