Since 2003, the massacre of African Muslims by Arab Muslims in Darfur, a Texas-sized region in the African nation of Sudan, has resulted in more than 400,000 deaths and 2.5 million displaced people. And despite a peace agreement between the Sudanese government and the largest Darfur rebel group, the killings, mass rapes, plundering, and crop-burning continues.
