The eighteenth anniversary of the outbreak of the armed revolution in Darfur in defense of the genocidal proxy war waged by the National Islamic Front

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

This article comes against the backdrop of the equal participation of members belonging to the armed struggle movements from the Darfur region in ministerial positions and portfolios in the second government of Sudan for the transitional period after the glorious December Revolution.

May I begin this article with prayers and mercy for the souls of the martyrs of the Sudanese revolutions against the totalitarian tyrannical regimes that ruled the Sudanese people in general and the Sudanese people in the marginalized regions such as Darfur in particular. This equal participation in governing the regions of Sudan and assuming real ministerial positions is something that was not expected even in dreams during the rule of the ruling regime of the deposed Omar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir and his criminal entourage. In addition to that, one of us can hardly believe what he sees and hears today. One says thank God and also thanks the people of Sudan in general at this pivotal and at this defining moment in the Sudanese history.

Rifts and lament of the glorious December Revolution explain as to why the Third Sudanese people’s Revolution is at risk

الخلافات ورثاء ثورة ديسمبرالمجيدة تفسر سبب تعرض ثورة الشعب السوداني الثالث للخطر

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

And the most dangerous threat to the Glorious December Revolution is the abundance of security chaos, as well as the ongoing disputes between the components of the Sudanese political parties, the Forces of Declaration of Freedom and Chang –aka- GHAT-, the armed struggle movements, and some components of the Sudanese people in specific states; Eastern Sudan is not an exception.

The declaration of asymmetric warfare over the Fashaqa area against neighboring Ethiopia is a new setback for the peace of Sudan, which is already stalled

إن إعلان حرب غير متكافئة من أجل منطقة فشقة ضد الجارة إثيوبيا انتكاسة جديدة لسلام السودان المتعثر بالفعل

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

The above titled article comes at and against the backdrop of the beating of the drums of futile and waging a lost war in advance against the sisterly neighbouring country Ethiopia and its Prime Minister Abe Ahmed have supported the Sudanese Peace signed finally in Juba on the Third of October 2019. The underlying reason for trying waging the Warfare against Ethiopia to regain the territory of Fashaga is not a priority for Sudan especially at a time when Peace in Sudan remains volatile and incomplete, let alone the dire daily living conditions of the Sudanese people amid the insecurity continuing caused by gangsters who target the civilians all over the regions of the country. Worse, is the situation regarding failure in completing the dues of Sudanese Peace finally signed in Juba; bearing in mind the fact the final departure of the UNAMID from the Darfur region at the fixed date that would leave a vacuum for the expected Lawlessness while the New force known as the Integrated Transitional Assistance Mission In Sudan (UNITAMS) being installed. At this juncture, one will not ignore for a moment the health implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the high costs of the loss of precious lives of those citizens inflicted by the disease. It is high time for the Sudanese Transposal government components to give it a thorough thought as to whether it is necessary and wise to wage a new war at this complicated critical time for Sudan.The Fashaga territory has not been occupied by the Ethiopians today. It was occupied on the day the elements affiliated to the deposed Muslim Brotherhood Movement (MBM) Regime in Sudan carried out a failed assassination attempt of the then Egyptian President Mohammed Hosni Mubarak and the Fashaga was annexed by Ethiopia following that incident and Omer al-Bashir led so-called National Islamic Front (NIF)/National Congress Party (NCP) regime kept silent ever since and kept the crime covered up to avoid revenge from the Egyptian authorities. So what is the new motive for thinking to waging a lost war in advance?!

This article comes against the backdrop of the UNSC decision on Wednesday the 23rd December 2020 to END and Withdraw the UN Mission to Darfur known as UNAMID from the Darfur region in the western Sudan under the banner of: “The UN Security Council ends tasks of “UNAMID””.https://www.alhurra.com/sudan/2020/12/23/%D9%85%D8%AC%D9%84%D8%B3-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%85%D9%86-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AF%D9%88%D9%84%D9%8A-%D9%8A%D9%86%D9%87%D9%8A-%D9%85%D9%87%D8%A7%D9%85-%D9%8A%D9%88%D9%86%D8%A7%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%AF

Account Inventory for the Sudan’s Third Revolution that broke out on Wednesday 19 December 2018

جرد حسابات ثورة السودان الثالثة التي اندلعت يوم الأربعاء 19 ديسمبر 2018

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

This article comes against the backdrop of Sudan’s Third Revolution as some like to call it, two years later during which Much have been achieved but risks still remain, among many of which fear of a counterrevolution by the former terrorist Islamist remnants. Accordingly, it occurred to me to carry out some kind of Account Inventory in pursuit of gains achieved and/or losses sustained during the past two years lifetime of the glorious popular Sudanese revolution. In this study comes the first obvious question about whether the three slogans of the well-known revolution have been fulfilled, namely Freedom, Peace and Justice. It is Noteworthy that each of the aforementioned slogans has many contents that need a separate discussion. Undoubtedly, there are the pessimists and the optimists, and it is difficult to satisfy each of them as they wish, but we take into account the positive aspects as a serious concern, and then we come later to the negative aspects, hoping that victory is the ally of the Sudanese people in the end. It is obvious that much water flowed over the bridge by the Second birthday of the Sudanese Third Glorious Revolution; stocktaking is thought appropriate and/or Wildfire harvest Achievement.

My Memories of the Late Imam al-Sadig al-Mahdi God have Mercy on him

The late al-Saddig al- Mahdi

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

This article comes against the backdrop of the saddening news in the headlines of the News Media reporting the departure of the Ansar Sect leader Imam Al-Sadig Al-Mahdiand Sudan’s former Democratically elected Prime Minister and Political leader who sadly passed away leaving thismortal world, on Thursday the Twenty-Sixth of November 2020; the newspapers reported that the cause of the death of the late Imam al-Sadig Al-Mahdi is the respiratory disease for which he was hospitalised in the United Arab Emirates immediately after his infection.https://sudantribune.com/spip.php?article70140

We pray to Allah (SWT) Almighty to accept him in the gardens of the Supreme Paradise with the martyrs, the prophets, the righteous, and the goodness of those companions and may Allah (SWT) bless them all. 

At this juncture, I thought that it is my duty to remember or mention the stations during life in which I met the late Imam al-Ansar al-Sadig al-Mahdi, may God accept him with the righteous and forgive him.

I met Imam al-Sadiq al-Mahdi for the first time in my lifewhen I was a first year Preliminary Student aka “Prel” at the Faculty of Science of the University of Khartoum where an elder colleague of ours and from the Darfur Province whose ancestors belonged to the Ansar Sect, his name was Ali Omer al-Bushari, he invited us and led us to the home of Sayed al-Sadig al-Mahdi who greeted us warmly and asked us to what we would like to drink for his hospitality. Nevertheless, he did not wait for an answer from us, and said, “I will offer you a drink of a Kerkaday, that is, a drink of Hibiscus.” And he added saying: because you are from the Darfur Province, which is famous for its cultivation! Al-Sayed al-Sadig Al-Mahdi was at the time a young man and he did not hold a political position. The home we met Sayed al-Sadig Al-Mahdi was the neighbourhood of Mulazmeen, in the City of Omdurman.

As for the Second time I met with Mr. Sadig al-Mahdi, together with a group of students of the University of Khartoum, along with students from the Higher Teacher Training Institute and the masses of the Sudanese people during the October 21st Popular Sudanese Revolution in the year 1964, when the people gathered in the Mawlid Square, which is now called the Family Club in Khartoum. We were at the time around the body of my former class-mate at El-Fasher Secondary School, late martyr of the revolution, Ahmed Al-Gurashi Taha. And Sayed​Al-Sadig Al-Mahdiwas the Imam of the funeral prayer for the late Ahmed Al-Gurashi Taha, as the body was being prepared for its transfer to his home village of Al-Garrasa in the White Nile region. As for the third and last time of my meeting with the late Sayed Imam Al-Sadig al-Mahdi, was during the Sudan Call Alliance that crucially united the core of a formerly fragmented political and armed Movements opposition on issues of national governance for the first time, calling for a peaceful and popular democratic transformation. Al-Mahdi was in France within the activities of the Sudan Call Forces, where Imam Al-Sadiq had chaired the sessions that includedrepresentatives of armed struggle movements, Sudanese political parties and civil society organisation committees. I met the late Imam al-Mahdi and I was honoured to attend those meetings as a political civilian member of one of the armed struggle movements. And the Imam acted in his capacity of chairmanship of the Sudan Call Alliancemeetings with dignity, know-how and respect for the other; God Bless him.

During these saddening moments, I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of the late Sayed Sadig al-Mahdi al-Imam of the Ansar sect and to the membership of the National Umma Party (NUP) and to his family, especially hisdaughter Dr. Maryam Al-Mansoura Al-Sadiq Al-Mahdi whohad a presence in all important Sudanese political forums until the Sudanese people managed to overthrow the ruling regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) and ousted thecriminal of génocidaire Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir.Furthermore, our condolences go out to the entire Sudanese people, and we pray to God Almighty to grant patience and solace to all the Sudanese people.

We belong to God and to Him we shall return, and there is no strength or power except in God.

NORMALIZATION WITH ISRAEL IS FORBIDDEN FOR SUDAN BUT ALLOWED FOR OTHER ARAB LEAGUE MEMBERS isn’t that unfair?

NORMALIZATION WITH ISRAEL IS FORBIDDEN FOR SUDAN BUT ALLOWED FOR OTHER ARAB LEAGUE MEMBERS isn’t that unfair?

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

Many waters have passed under the bridge, as the saying goes, since the Six-Day War that led to the Nakba, aka the great catastrophe, and the defeat of the Egyptian armyduring the presidency of President Gamal Abdel Nasser who resigned following the defeat, but he returned to office after popular demonstrations called for his reinstatement. Although the rest is a history but it is appropriate to add that, by 1968, Nasser had appointed himself Prime Minister, launched the War of Attrition to regain lost territory, began a process of depoliticizing the military and issued a set of political liberalization reforms. After the conclusion of the 1970 Arab League summit in Khartoum, sadly Nasser suffered a heart attack and died. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamal_Abdel_Nasser His funeral in Cairo drew five million mourners and an outpouring of grief across the Arab world. Before the passing away of President Abdelnasir, the Arab League – formally the League of Arab States- met with all its members in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, in August 29, 1967, when and the decisions known as the Three Nos, which include No Peace with Israel, No Negotiation with Israel and No Recognition of Israel, and the result was that these three commitments did not prove their credibility in the year of the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020 which coincided with the American elections during the reign of the presidency of President Donald Trump in power in the White House in Washington DC.

The Sudanese peace signed in Juba will definitely triumph despite the sinister plots of the Sedition mongers

The Sudanese peace signed in Juba will definitely triumph despite the sinister plots of the Sedition mongers

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

From the outset, we the people of Sudan from the peripheral regions say in a loud voices NO and NO to the Call forWednesday the 21st October 2020 MASS Demonstration behind which Malice and Satanic Plot to eventually Bulldoze the Sustainable Peace Finally Achieved in Juba. We know more than many of them that the twenty-first of October of every year reminds us of the glorious revolution of October 21, 1964, which erupted for many reasons, the problem of the southern Sudan region at the top at the time, in addition to the presence of the coup military government led by General Ibrahim Abboud, who led the military coup with the orders of the Master Abdullah Khalil who was the Prime Minister and he was from the Umma Party and the Ansar sect. It is also noteworthy to say that the 21st October 1964 Revolution was led by all the Sudanese masses, especially students from the University of Khartoum and other Higher Education Institutions. Therefore, no one Political Party should claim to have the monopoly of exploiting it for the satisfaction of its personal instincts and his exploitation against opponents. We have mercy on the souls of the martyrs of the glorious October 21, 1964 popular Revolution. But it should not be used for personal or partisan purposes as is happening now.

The Finally Signed Sudanese Peace Agreement in Juba the Capital of our Sisterly Country South Sudan is a TREASUTRE

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

What has been achieved from the finally signed Sudanese peace agreement in Juba is a treasure, because its price was the loss of innocent civilian lives and the irreparable destruction of livelihood in various regions of Sudan Using a pickaxe to demolish it  by  the Notoriously Damned regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) led by the genocidal criminal and the fugitive from the international justice Omer Hassan Ahmed Al-Bashir, who today is in Kober prison awaiting his extradition to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands with his criminal entourage to join with his ilk from the world’s thuggish criminals. Furthermore, Saturday the third of October 2020 is a remarkable date that remains in the record of the achievements of the people of Sudan. It is Noteworthy that the Month of October reminds us of the Glorious October 21 1964 Glorious Revolution in which the people of Sudan were able to overthrow the regime of General Ibrahim Abboud and restored democratic rule to Sudan.
