I believe if you check out the past 20 years of Iran and Iraq you will find much more casualties. Although the current situation has produced many, going back over the past 20 years you will find there has been continuous internal strive, the death toll has been much larger there.
No, the death toll in Darfur should not be overlooked, but it is not greater than what it has been in other places.
2. Number of post in this forum voicing concern about Darfur is many times less than number of posts concering killings and sufferings of muslims elsewhere.
This thread has recieved sufficient views to keep it on the first page longer then any other recent thread. The number of posts and views are in the higher numbers of the majority of threads, in the "World Affairs" section.
Does this ring the bell?
If yes, than its never too late to wake up brother.
And this is certainly not the critaria, but just a humble attempt to show U the reality of muslim world. U wont see a big difference elsewhere regarding this issue. I bet.
There are probably more international and Muslim organizations involved in the welfare of Darfur than any other current conflict. The problem is not the lack of concern, but the inability for anyone to find a successfull solution. No, Muslims around the world have not just simply thrown their hands up in the air and given up. It is just that external influence is not very effective for ending internal conflict.
Just a few of the groups (Muslim and Non-Muslim, the Non-Muslim ones also have a significant number of Muslims involved) that have been engaged in bringing peace to Darfur and the problems they have run into:

There are many, many more. This has been an issue that the Muslim Ummah and the rest of the world has been trying to end for the past 20 years. It is not that Darfur is overlooked and ignored, it is the simple fact that nothing has worked yet.
Probably the fastest way to end the conflict would be for an outside force to invade and conquer both sides and set up a dictatorship. However, I doubt if many would want that as a solution.
