During the 100 days massacre, UN forces watched the Rwanda genocide happen, under direct orders not to interfere.

Declassified documents show that the Clinton White House had advance knowledge of the Rwandan genocide before it started. Sixteen days before the killings began, Bill Clinton was informed that the Hutus had planned a “final solution to eliminate all Tutsi”. Clinton received several reports describing their plan as “genocide”.
The US government knew what was going to happen more than two weeks before it started, but they made a decision to let it happen on purpose. Clinton justified his decision with “Whether we get involved in any of the world’s ethnic conflicts, must depend on the cumulative weight of the American interests at stake”.

Members of the UN were forbidden to sell weapons to Rwanda but companies from France, Belgium, Egypt, Ghana, and the UK continued to supply weapons to the Hutu extremists.
About three months before the genocide started, a French plane was caught illegally delivering weapons to the Hutu extremists that would later be used in the genocide, in direct violation of the Arusha Peace Accords that had ended the Rwandan Civil War. UN Force Commander, Roméo Dallaire, reported it to his superiors and warned that violence was coming, and asked for action to prevent this.
The UN did nothing…

At a time that thousands a day were killed and Hutu extremists were calling for the extermination of every Tutsi in the country on Rwanda’s radio, the UN Security Council discussed what to do. The US and France used a hidden veto to keep the world out of the conversation. They were threatening to veto any action in Rwanda. They didn’t allow letting the UN use the word “genocide” in any resolution about it.
Already in September 1993, National Coordinator for Security in the USA Richard Clarke wrote a memo that the UN shouldn’t send more “peacekeepers” to Rwanda and wrote: “If as USUN reports, a Rwanda resolution has 10 votes in the UNSC, we may have to say no with a veto”.

Declassified records show that 2 days after the massacre had started, on 9 April  Richard Clarke wrote in an e-mail: “We should work with the French to gain a consensus to terminate the UN mission”. When the genocide started, there were about 2000 UN Peacekeepers in Rwanda that weren’t allowed interfering. While Roméo Dallaire asked for more troops to do something about it, the UN pulled most of its troops out instead (leaving only 270).
When they started pulling the UN forces out, member of the US National Security Council Eric Schwartz warned the White House that if the UN “Peacekeepers” were pulled out, this would turn into a full-scale genocide.

When the UN finally started sending peacekeepers back into Rwanda, when the genocide was almost over, France set up one of the biggest relief programs “Zone Turquoise” that covered one-fifth of Rwanda. There is some debate over who the French were trying to protect. Many Rwandans thought the French weren’t there to stop the killings.
The French never arrested the people behind the genocide or shut down the Hutu propaganda station Radio des Milles-Collines that was supporting the murders. Radio des Milles-Collines, celebrated the coming French “allies”, telling Hutu girls to “wash yourselves and put on a good dress to welcome our French allies. The Tutsi girls are all dead so you have your chance”.

Shortly after Paul Kagame and the RPF were installed into power of Rwanda, Kagame claimed that the French government had a “direct role in the preparation of the genocide”.
Kagame pointed to Operation Noroît, which armed and trained Hutu fighters. Kagame claims that France even helped plan the logistics of the slaughter. Kagame even claims that French soldiers assassinated people who were hiding Tutsis and were involved in rapes.
After Rwandan President Habyarimana’s plane was shot down, French troops airlifted his wife Agathe Habyarimana, gave her 230,000 Francs and let her live in Paris. According to the Rwandan government, Agathe Habyarimana could have been one of the key players involved in planning the Rwandan genocide. The French State Council actually agrees and stated that there are “serious reasons to suspect” her.
Kagame wanted her extradited to Rwanda, but France refused. There is an international warrant for her arrest on charges of genocide, but she is safe in France.

In 1990, none other than Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs Boutros Boutros-Ghali had secretly sent Hutu militia a massive $26 million shipment of weapons. Boutros-Ghali had actively convinced Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to sell these arms. To keep the arms sale secret, Boutros-Ghali labelled them “relief materials”.
The Rwandan ambassador sent Boutros-Ghali a thank you letter: “The personal intervention of Boutros-Ghali, was a determining factor in the conclusion of the arms contract”.
Was this THE reason that Boutros-Ghali was selected for UN Secretary-General?!? In 1994, then Secretary-General of the UN Boutros Boutros-Ghali did nothing to prevent the genocide from happening.

By common consensus, shooting down the plane with the presidents of Rwanda and Burundi triggered the genocide. It is still not entirely clear who shot the plane down.
After the UN let the genocide happen, it formed the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). An ICTR team, led by attorney Michael Hourigan, found evidence that suggested Kagame — who later became President of Rwanda — was behind it. ICTR Chief Prosecutor Louise Arbour ordered him to stop the investigation.
In 2002, when new chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte took over, she tried to reopen the investigation. She was immediately fired by the UN — and she thinks that the US and the UK demanded her dismissal.

Some claim that Israel continued to provide the Hutu extremists with weapons from 1990 to 1995 — even while the genocide was ongoing.
Some Israeli citizens filed a Freedom of Information request for the documents that went to the Israeli Supreme Court on these arms sales. The Supreme Court wouldn’t have refused the request without good reason: https://listverse.com/2017/04/06/10-horrifying-ways-the-un-is-to-blame-for-the-rwandan-genocide/

Queen Elizabeth’s government, with at the time John Major as PM, was also warned.
On 11 January 1994, the commander of the UN peacekeepers sent a cable outlining a genocide plot. This was just one of dozens of warnings.

Is Belgium the “hero” in this disaster?!?
In the weeks before the genocide, the Belgian ambassador to the UN tried to persuade the permanent members of the Security Council that something had to be done to prevent the coming massacre in Rwanda: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/apr/05/rwanda.comment

It has been carefully kept secret that British companies sold arms to Rwanda before and after the UN embargo of 17 May 1994.

The British Mil-Tec Corporation Ltd supplied the Rwandan army with over $5.5 million worth of arms from mid-April 1994 until mid-July 1994 – the exact period of the genocide.
Mil-Tec was run by Anoop Vidyarthi with an office in north London: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/bloody-trade-that-fuels-rwandas-war-1353751.html
