This is what neighbourly friends could violently do; ending up within our own culture, watch Immaculée Ilibagiza and learn about tribal division.

The degree of brutality during the massacre caused shock worldwide, but no country intervened to vigorously stop the killings. Most of the victims were killed in their own villages or towns, many by their neighbours and fellow villagers. Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings. The militia murdered victims with machetes and rifles. Sexual violence was rife, with an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 women raped during the genocide. The RPF quickly resumed the civil war once the genocide started and captured all government territory, ending the genocide and forcing the government and genocide into Zaire.

In Left to Tell, Immaculée Ilibagiza shares of her experience during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. She survived hidden for 91 days with seven other women in a small bathroom, no larger than 3 feet (0.91 m) by 4 feet (1.2 m) (an area of 12 square feet). The bathroom was concealed in a room behind a wardrobe in the home of a Hutu pastor. During the genocide, most of Ilibagiza's family (her mother, her father, and her two brothers Damascene and Vianney) was killed by Hutu Interahamwe soldiers.

Immaculée Ilibagiza's survived the 1994 Rwandan genocide by doing the unthinkable -- fleeing her home and seeking  refuge in the home of a pastor who belonged to the tribe that was trying to kill her. This is her remarkable story of  survival.

Tremendously shocking, I remember these days; I think there's actually a couple of documentary movies from a French director and a British director

Hotel Rwanda - The Hutu Arrive: The situation becomes dire when the Hutu deliver the helmet of one of Oliver’s (Nick Nolte) men to the hotel gate.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Paul Rusesabagina (Don Cheadle), a Hutu, manages the Hôtel des Mille Collines and lives a happy life with his Tutsi wife (Sophie Okonedo) and their three children. But when Hutu military forces initiate a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Tutsi minority, Paul is compelled to allow refugees to take shelter in his hotel. As the U.N. pulls out, Paul must struggle alone to protect the Tutsi refugees in the face of the escalating violence later known as the Rwandan genocide.

Doesn't George Clooney know that most of the money will go for weaponry for more massacres?

scream Is this woman for real or she is used up by the religious association to pull out more money for revengeful killing of the same sort?

Did she ever ask herself why her beloved JESUS did not help out her brothers, mother and all the innocent kids in her entire village?

This is what pissed me off about religious people; it's always about them… sole about themselves!!

If this sounds like another hopeless African crisis

George Clooney and John Prendergast are Co-Founders of The Sentry (www.thesentry.org), which follows the dirty money connected to African war criminals and transnational war profiteers and seeks to shut those benefiting from violence out of the international financial system.
