Quotes

The report says for example that "on June 29, the Islamic State issued a statement announcing that the Caliphate included people from the following nationalities: Caucasian [sic], Indian, Chinese, Shami (Levantine), Iraqi, Yemeni, Egyptian, North AfricanAfrican American, French, German, and Australians."
Later, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs provided this quote from Ging: “ "I applaud the generosity of the people and Government of Ethiopia, who are now hosting almost 600,000 refugees from the region. Despite not being a rich country, they have consistently kept their borders open, and are an example of international standard for the treatment of refugees in practice. It is now the international community's turn to step up and shoulder its responsibilities to share the burden with Ethiopia." So far, of the 193 member states of the United Nations, only 18 are funding the appeal.”
Inner City Press asked Haq to comment, in the context of the more than 80 00 deaths in Haiti, on this sentence: "there is a growing acceptance that an individual state can be held liable for deaths in a UN-mandated operation."
"If that's what it morphs into," Mia Farrow said, "that would be like Darfur, [UNAMID]... it's never going to be the answer."
