Mass Rapes by "Holy Warriors"

The American Anti-Slavery Group (AASG) has announced an urgent campaign against the practice of gang-raping female slaves in South Sudan. The announcement follows evidence of mass rapes gathered by the Swiss-based human rights organization, Christian Solidarity International (CSI).

AASG President Charles Jacobs said, "the gang rapes of slave women in South Sudan are a crime against humanity. The world reacted strongly to this horror in Kosovo. We expect the same response when the victims are black African women."

"This mass, violent, humiliating abuse of women should force us to consider how to protect African villages from Khartoum's "holy war." The National Islamic Front regime in Khartoum declared a "holy war" to Islamize and Arabize the non-Muslim and moderate African Muslim populations in Sudan. Congress has called this a "genocide." Over 2 million have been killed and tens of thousands have been enslaved by "holy warriors."
