This is the title of a new film about Rwanda which is far better than Hotel Rwanda.
Twenty years after the tragedy, the President of Rwanda Paul Kagame, the media, the “humanitarian” organizations, much of the political class and the pro-Israeli networks continue to accuse France of involvement in the Rwandan genocide. For those behind the dominant narrative since, Tustis are the victims of crimes against humanity committed by the Hutus pro-French; never their share of blame is highlighted; never the sordid reasons behind the massacres are explained; never the negative role of foreign powers who had an interest in causing the disaster is mentioned. It is time to take the case to square one and dare say, with supporting evidence that the official story was manipulated.
This film asks the forbidden questions:
Which foreign power has trained Tutsi rebel leaders, including the current President of Rwanda Paul Kagame?
Who shot down the plane of President Juvenal Habyarimana, an assassination that triggered the largest massacre that Africa has seen since World War II?
Why some NGOs have cultivated strange close relationships with the RPF? Under whose pressure did the Arusha Peace Agreement (1993) pave the way for the victory of the RPF?
What is the geostrategic objective pursued by the United States, Britain and Israel in these dramatic events?
With assistance from journalists and authors Pierre Péan and Patrick Mbeko, the former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Colonel Robardey, technical assistant judicial police in Rwanda, and the ultimate interview with Michael Hourigan, the investigating ICTR to the UN.
On April 6th, 2014, it is exactly 20 years since the assassination of two African presidents namely Juvenal Habyarimana of Rwanda and Cyprien Ntaryamira of Burundi occurred, and US, UK and other interested parties have obstructed every effort to get the perpetrators of that horrible act prosecuted.

Victoire Umuhoza Ingabire, imprisoned leader of FDU-Inkingi. She was sentenced to 15 years of jail last December.
The first post “On Kagame’s Rwanda” was written on February 27th, 2010. A month earlier, Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, chairperson of FDU-Inkingi, a Rwandan political party from the opposition which operates from exile, had returned to Rwanda. This was on January 16th. I had been to her farewell meeting in Brussels on January 9th, 2010. Her charisma had again touched me. I was going to become one of her millions of Rwandan supporters despite her imprisonment since October 14th, 2010.
The blog was meant to be a channel to update her followers and friends with information regarding her political struggle inside Rwanda. This was one aspect that I wanted to highlight. I aimed as well for the blog to be that window through which anyone could learn what was going on in other parts of the African continent. Since the start of the new millennium, it is claimed rightly or wrongly that the 21st century is going to be the African century, meaning the period during which Africans are going to cease to be seen as the underdogs but become fully part of the global community as equal human beings as the rest.

On 14 July 1960, the Security Council passes a resolution in accordance with the wishes of the Congolese government, which asks Belgium to withdraw its troops from the territory of the Republic of Congo and authorizes the Secretary General of the UN, Dag Hammarskjöld, to provide technical military assistance to the Congolese government until Congolese armed forces are able to assume fully their responsibilities.
