Elie Wiesel: On the Atrocities in Sudan

Elie Weisel, a tireless advocate for world intervention in Darfur has said:
ďThe opposite of love is not hate, itís indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, itís indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, itís indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, itís indifference.Ē

The following are remarks delivered by Elie Wiesel at the Darfur Emergency Summit, convened at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York on July 14, 2004, by the American Jewish World Service and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Sudan has become today's world capital of human pain, suffering and agony. There, one part of the population has been - and still is - subjected by another part, the dominating part, to humiliation, hunger and death. For a while, the so-called civilized world knew about it and preferred to look away. Now people know. And so they have no excuse for their passivity bordering on indifference. Those who, like you my friends, try to break the walls of their apathy deserve everyone's support and everyone's solidarity.
