Bashir to Russia for an alleged Invitation

Bashir to Russia for an alleged Invitation to attend Football Finale

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

The attendance of the genocidal criminal, the fugitive from the International Justice Marshall Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir to watch the Football Finale in Russia is Slap on the face of the Darfur survivors and a betrayal of the victims of genocide.

President Omer al-Bashir and his corrupt regime over the past 30 lean years failed to develop football team that the people of Sudan to be proud of, honour and play before the people of the world the Sudanese National Anthem and jubilantly sing by saying: “We are the soldiers of God and the soldiers of the homeland”, which the Sudanese people almost forgotten it today. Has the modesty of the president of the ruling regime in Sudan been lost, so that he is no longer ashamed? Is it conceivable that genocide criminal Omer al-Bashir receives an official invitation from a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to attend the end of the World Cup in Russia? It seems that the (ICC) has been betrayed and evaded by the Russian President Vladimir Putin, if the alleged invitation of al-Bashir to attend the Finale of the International Football Tournament is true.

If the alleged news turns out true, International Criminal Court (ICC) has been betrayed by Russia the Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Omer al-Bashir Remains a Heavy Burden on the People of Sudan for three Decades and hence they must do what is possible to get rid of him and his regime.

The Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir will travel to Russia to attend the final of the World Cup between France and Croatia scheduled for Sunday 15th July 2018, according to the official Sudanese news agency SUNA.

Western leaders avoid meeting the Sudanese president, or taking part in any action, as a fugitive and a wanted criminal suspect.

It is noteworthy to report that on Tuesday the 10th July 2018, the European Union (EU) expressed regret that Djibouti and Uganda had not fulfilled their legal obligations and that they had not extradited President Bashir to the International Criminal Court (ICC) which issued two arrest warrants in 2009 and 2010. However, the arrogant Omer al-Bashir tries to prove that he is free to travel around the globe in defiance of the International Criminal Court (ICC) indictment and arrest warrants for his implications in the crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocidal atrocities against the Sudanese civilian citizens in the Darfur region and he remains fugitive from the international justice, evading the (ICC), travelling widely to prove himself that no power would dare to arrest him. Below is the list of his recent travels according to the (ICC) records:

al-Bashir leaves for Mauritania on June 30, 2018

Bashir leaves for Djibouti July 4, 2018

Bashir leaves for Uganda July 7, 2018

Bashir leaves for Turkey July 9, 2018

Bashir leaves for Russia July 13, 2018

The atrocities perpetrated by the Government of Sudan (GoS) and the Janjaweed militia during the third post-2003 Darfuri conflict constituted the first internationally condemned and acknowledged genocide of the twenty-first century. Thus, President of Sudan Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir remains at large since 16 October 1993 at time of arrest warrants: 4 March 2009 on 5 counts of crimes against humanity, 2 charges were for war crimes and On 12 July 2010 3 charges of genocide

The Prosecutor v. Omar Hassan Ahmad Al Bashir. Available from: [accessed Jul 14 2018].

Bashir has become the present-day Ibn Battuta, entering the Guinness Book of Records which is the most important travel book around the world with the support of the money looted from the public purse of Sudanese people!

Ibn Battuta (1304 – 1368 or 1369) was a Moroccan explorer. He is known for the account of his journeys called the Rihla (“Voyage”). He travelled for nearly 30 years and covered most of the Islamic world. He also explored West Africa, Southern and Eastern Europe, South Asia, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and China. This distance was more than Marco Polo travelled; about 75,000 kilometres (47,000 mi). Ibn Battuta was considered the greatest traveller of the medieval period. Battuta also made maps that were used by cartographers.

Social networking devices were filled with comic and other comments full of irony, disgust and anger at Omar al-Bashir’s visit to Russia to attend the end of the World Cup. Some Sudanese wondered whether French President Macaron was shaking hands with Omar al-Bashir, stained with the blood of victims and lives Darfur, and therefore has been chased by the International Criminal Court and has been running away from international justice since 2009? Others also asked about the purpose for which Omar al-Bashir, his wife and his entourage of twenty-six individuals is visiting at the expense of the deprived people of Sudan while Sudan does not have a football team participating in the international tournament. Other Sudanese citizens said that at this moment, the rescue of the 12 children and their coach from the cave filled with water, which made all the peoples of the world follow the tragedy of the children of the cave and solidarity with them where the aid came from everywhere and can be said that the Government of Thailand and its people are the winners of the World Football Championship that coincided with the rescue of the Children of the cave with global football competitions! The twelve boys and their soccer coach rescued from a flooded Thai Cave will watch a recording of the World Cup final which takes place on Sunday (July 15 2018), not the live broadcast, an official at the hospital they are staying in said. Others in Sudan hoped that the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) (Fatu Bensouda  to be in Moscow, which would frighten Omer al-Bashir because he fears  the international Criminal Court (ICC)  more than anything else in his lifetime and has been doing everything to avoid arrest and surrender to The Hague prisons in the Netherlands. The (ICC) Chase of him has become the real nightmare that keeps Omer al – Bashir sleepless at night and day whether he like it or not and will remain his boogeyman under his bed whether he likes it or not.

The Horror of Bashir for the (ICC) will remain haunting and pursuing him as long as the arrest warrants have not achieved the desired goal.

Despite the attempt of the media owned by the Bashir regime to promote that the government of al-Bashir has received a pre-invitation from Russia demanding the presence of al-Bashir to Russia for important meetings with President Putin, but a document obtained by the “Rakuba” confirmed that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has applied to the Russian government, for attending the closing of the World football Cup matches currently held in Russian territory.

It is noteworthy that Omer al-Bashir and his entourage of 26 individuals have not received any invitation from the Russian government to attend the end of international football competitions.

Sudanese social media interactors are asking interesting question:

As to whether President Omer al-Bashir’s visit to Russia to attend the World Cup finals is based to an invitation from President Putin and if it is so what will happen if France or Croatia wins the Cup? Will President Emmanuel Macron accept congratulatory hand-shake from Al-Bashir, or how will the Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović will react in case her turn to do so? Would the two Presidents disregard their International obligations and ignore the International Criminal Court (ICC) indictment of the Sudanese President Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir. A Sudanese activist indicated that the expectations are that the Great Football Teams who will be playing the World Cup would refuse to play unless al-Bashir leaves the Stadium!

Earlier, ,” the Sudanese official news agency said SUNA indicated that: “Bashir will go to Moscow on Friday for an official visit to Russia, during which he will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to develop them. The agency went on saying: “The President of the Republic will see the end of the World Cup on the sidelines of the World Cup and 25 heads of state at the invitation of President Putin.” Furthermore, the agency pointed out that the talks between Presidents Bashir and Putin will focus on “economic relations, building a strategic partnership for development, along with the promotion of joint cooperation in the political and economic fields, increasing investment opportunities, especially in the fields of agriculture and energy, Armed Sudanese, which is supported by Russia.” It is noteworthy to recall that In November2017, al-Bashir made a historic visit to Russia, during which he met with his Russian counterpart and the two countries signed a package of economic and military agreements, the results of which have given no fruits so far!. However, the current alleged visit of al-Bashir to Russia is nothing but an expensive touristic journey at the expense of the Sudanese public coffers to the seat of the former Soviet Union, officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) where al-Bashir meant to entertain his wife and the children of his wife from her previous marriage and the individuals in his closed circle of confidents coinciding that with the international Football Tournament. On the other hand, if the spectators of the final World Football Cup have become aware of the presence of Omer al-Bashir among the audience they will shout heckling him and ask him to leave the football arena; he is a persona non grata! While the President of Thailand will be a warmly welcome from the audience watching the final Football Tournament for his caring national attitudes towards his people trapped in a cave flooded by the waters. France plays Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday, at 10pm in Thailand. The world soccer governing body FIFA had invited the 12 Thai boys and their coach to attend the final football tournament in Moscow but they cannot go for medical reasons. The Thai news reported that the 12-member “Wild Boars” soccer team and their coach spent more than two weeks trapped inside a flooded cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai.

They have been recovering in hospital since they were rescued over three days last week and will be discharged on Thursday.

Bashir’s marathonical travels are nothing but a form of psychological complex of inferiority feeling and accordingly he has to resort those hapless move outs seeking some temporary relief from his ceaseless tension.

The Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow will host the finale to the 2018 World Football Cup. Russia’s sporting Mecca as it is referred to, has previously hosted the 1980 Olympics, 1999 UEFA Cup Final and 2008 Champions League Final. The question that poses itself is as to whether Omer al-Bashir will be the Guest of Honour rubbing shoulders with the French President Emmanuel Macron and the President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović.

Vincent Thomas Lombardi the American football player, coach, and executive in the National Football League has been quoted as saying: “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.

Sudanese Elections Scheduled for 2020 will be Fraught with Dangers andCounterfeiting like its predecessors

Sudanese Elections Scheduled for 2020 will be Fraught with Dangers andCounterfeiting like its predecessors

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

The National Congress Party (NCP) regime’s Elections Scheduled for the year 2020 and kept orchestrating about it and deafened the ears by the repeated echoes is nothing but a kind of blatant Systematic deception to extend the already overextended term of office for the inept genocidal dictator Marshal Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir with the view to protect him from arrest by the International Criminal Court (ICC), which has been chasing him since early 2009 but remains fugitive from the international justice and a pariah of the world population. As it is known, during Electoral fraud criminal practices are resorted to  by the National Congress Party (NCP) regime, where large numbers of voters were made to vote more than once, in addition to election manipulation, or vote rigging through illegal interference with the process of the election process, whether by increasing the vote share of the favoured candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both to which dictatorial regimes resort to in order remain in power indefinitely. The political game in the form of cheating and fraud during thecallous reign of the (NCP) regime is not an exception!Thepeople of Sudan under the reign of the (NCP) regime must have read the scholarly written essay entitled“From Dictatorship to Democracy, A Conceptual Framework for Liberation which is a book-length essay on the generic problem of how to destroy a dictatorship and to prevent the rise of a new one. The book was written in 1993 by Gene Sharp (b. 1928), a professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts. The book has been published in many countries worldwide and translated into more than 30 languages.

Substantial evidence of voter fraud is rive during the over-prolonged reign of the (NIF)/(NCP) regime.

The National Islamic Front (NIF), and its heir the ruling National Congress Party (NCP), seized power in Sudan through the military coup on Friday, June 30, 1989, and overthrew the democratically elected government and then ruled through their corrupt racist regime, whose actions are contrary to the teachings of the Islamic religion, which they claim its monopoly for being staunch members of the International  Muslim brotherhood Movement (MBM) and they continuing craving for another term of office for their Master of Grace, Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir and believing that it would shield him from the gripping hand of the International Criminal Court (ICC) At The Hague in the Netherlands which the Marshall fears more than anything else.

As it is known throughout history and the human experience that the strategies dictators often use to survive include elections. James Tilley, a professor of politics at Oxford University, finds out what’s in the dictators’ survival guide; hefound outhow they manipulate apparently democratic procedures like elections to secure their rule. The survival guide is, somewhat surprisingly, called “elections”. Most countries now have elections, but dictators usually rig them. Today, election rigging is more sophisticated than simply stuffing ballot boxes. Dr. Brian Klaas is a research fellow at the London School of Economics.

The answer to as to why so many of these leaders stay in power for so long is that most have a series of complementary strategies – a “dictator’s survival guide” – that over time entrench their rule.

Incentives to stay in power are so readily at hand for autocratic entities. So far, the dictators’ survival guide seems to imply that staying in power is not so difficult. Monitor and control the population, pay off a small number of influential people and use elections to demonstrate their power. And to some extent that’s true. Once dictators have ruled for a few years and mastered these levers of power they become very difficult to dislodge.

The Dictator’s Survival Guide

When Robert Mugabe was deposed last year, he had ruled Zimbabwe for nearly four decades. How do dictators and authoritarians stay in power? James Tilley, a professor of politics at Oxford University, finds out what’s in the dictators’ survival guide. How do they control ordinary people and stop revolts? How do they stop rivals from taking over? And how do they manipulate apparently democratic procedures like elections to secure their rule?

This article has decided to open itself by a satirical statement allegedly made by a leading member of the Popular Congress Party (PCP), Kamal Omer Abdel Salam. Mr. Abdel Salam has been quoted as saying: “Even if you run the elections inside your house, the ruling regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) will get the votes of your children! Furthermore, on the 9th of June 2018, the Popular Congress Party (PCP) rejected the draft of the 2018 election law, which was discussed by the Council of Ministers on Thursday, saying it contradicted the outcome of the dialogue because the National Congress Party (NCP) had put it without the advice of the forces participating in the government of reconciliation. The (POP) said it rejects the draft electoral law and accuses the (NCP) of putting it on its own.

 The US Administration under President Donald Trump is likely to turn a blind eye  once again and offer its support to the NCP regime in view to “blind loyalty despite Omer al-Bashir’s crimes against the people of Sudan and tried to absolve it of any wrongdoing despite its egregious violations, deliberate massacres and willful killings and war crimes which amounted to genocide in the Darfur region for which the International criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrants against the Omer al-Bashir who remains fugitive from the International Justice since 2009..

The statements such as:”The need for commitment to the outputs of the national dialogue, which demanded the guarantee of personal freedom, public freedoms, human rights in movement, work and others guaranteed by the amended Constitution of the Sudan of 2005 and all international laws” will not find any listening ears during those forged electioneering process times in al-Bashir ruled Sudan.

Thus, such elections mean nothing for dispossessed and disenfranchised Sudanese citizens in the war devastated region of Darfur. And it is similarly so for the other disadvantaged and the oppressed people in other regions in Sudan. Moreover, there will be an expectedmass boycott of a charade election made to measure for the size of the professional fraudulent shaking of ballot boxes and emptying their contents into the boxes belonged to his party supporters. The so-called 2020 elections are nothing butanother landslide win for al-Bashirwho has ruled Sudan for the then 31 lean years of oppression and abject failures in all aspects of rule of lawandGood governance. The 2020 elections are an inseparable part of the nefarious corruption that is still being practiced by the so-called National Congress Party (NCP), with the fake nomenclature.

This is attributable to the fact that the regime of the International Muslim Brotherhood Movement (MBM) has the greatest ability to falsify the facts and adopt falsehood and take the word “Watan, translated homeland” stuck to its name to appear acceptable to the People whose collective consciousness was turned into oblivion through systematic brainwashingwith religious slogans but at the same time denied of their rights of their country’s wealth and development for so long. It is very likely the showcasing popular apathy about elections to dominate the upcoming poll stations in the 2020 elections.Meanwhile, some news outlets loyal to the ruling party say that the party women are calling for Bashir to be re-elected for a new term.This type of news does not excite anyone, which is what is called the bad news for domestic consumption without legible contentBut at worse it is expected to lead to more people following the action of  not participating in the planned elections. Some clearly said that the vote is meaningless and that they will “not vote in the elections because they know the result in advance!

Furthermore, othermembers of the Sudanese people commented satirically about the alleged election of 2020 by stating that “There is only one candidate, who will win, and it’s the current president – the rest of the candidates are extras to legitimise the electoral process!”

Other commentators said adding that it isn’t fair that some regions are at devastating war while others are peaceful enough to vote.

Boycott 2020 Elections of Bashir’s Re-Enumeration is the motto for the next round of polls.

A number of young people say about an election to be held in 2020 that the Sudanese people have tasted bitterness over the past 30 years at the hands of Omar al-Bashir, who overthrew democracy and led the country to bankruptcy, hunger, disease, displacement and genocide is not fit for purpose and never has been. These tragedies are enough to resort to boycotting the elections. And the people of Sudan should not help in empowering the dictator Bashir to continue to spread wars and corruption while the remaining land and people of Sudan are the targeted the victims for the sake of the satanic goal of the survival of al-Bashir in power to wreak havoc and pour into the earth corruption and spread the scourge of futile wars.

The ruling regime of the National Islamic Front (NIF) and its heir the National Congress Party (NCP) tried to apply Islamo-Arabic rule to non-Muslim groups such as the region of the South Sudan, which hastened the secession of the people of South Sudan to establish their own failed state, the Government of South Sudan. The tribal wars between the Dinka and the Nuer led to abject Failure to the chronic failures learned from the Arabist suffering from the psychological syndrome of inferiority complex. As it is said, the one who has nothing cannot give the other something!

Thus, Revolutionary Movements and theserious opposition in the Sudanese political parties are calling and demanding the removal of marginalization and institutionalized injustice and call for theresisting and boycotting of the alleged elections. Let us not to offer legitimacy for the regime that never had legitimacy. This is because the (NCP) regime is not and has never been fit for purpose of nation building, rule of law and good governance.

The political analysts indicate that the failures that accompanied thecourse of governance in Sudan seem mostly to the fact that the grassroots were not part of the equation. Despite multi-party system and parliamentary elections the popular dimension was remarkably absent expect for election campaigns, but hardly any tangible presence in the socio-economic fields.

It is clear that Sudan is a security and police state par excellence, an intelligence apparatus, a state within a regime, and people oppressed.

The NCP government adopted in its plan to stop the war in Darfur on three axes that it worked to achieve simultaneously with the support of the international community: drying up the military presence of the armed movements in Darfur, collecting weapons and dismantling the camps of displacement and asylum through the voluntary return programme.

The Password is the organization of the rows in the face of the despotic regime.

These violations against humanity and against international law are taking place under international silence and complete failure by the joint United Nations and African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, and this silence on the crimes of the ruling regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) opens the way for the continuation and aggravation and makes clear that the he decision to withdraw UNAMID and restrict it to limited areas requires that the international forces reconsider these plans and work to provide full and adequate protection for the Sudanese citizens in the Darfur region.

Elections are marred by Fraud and the opposition challenged the results of the referendum that approved the new constitution, asking court to nullify the result because it was marred by fraud.

There is no such thing as an election in Sudanis really a truesuccinct statement.

The Sudanese Presidential and Parliamentary elections in 2020 will take place under a state of emergency. There is no level playing field for the Opposition Parties in the pre-election period.

 The Leader of the Reform Movement Now Party in Sudan Dr. Ghazi Salah al-Din has been reported as attacking the government and demanding that it stop the steps of passing the election law immediately. It is important to bear in mind that Ghazi Salah al-Dinwasthe closest to the ruling regime of the National Congress Party (NCP) and one of its founders and representative of the regime in the Darfur issue negotiations in Doha, Qatar in 2011. Moreover, Ghazi Salah al-Dinconfirmed that it is a violation of the recommendations of National Dialogue outcomes and a sound political practice!

Salah al-Din added saying the government should return to the foundation platform to issue a law to achieve national unity.This talk clearly indicates that the ruling regime has begun rigging the elections since now in 2018 and let alone in 2020!

The New election law puts more power in Bashir’s hands, authorizing him to form an election commission. Thus,Omer al-Bashir hopes to hold the parliament hostage to amend the constitution and the electoral law to be able to run for a new term not approved by the current constitution.

Frederick William Robertson, also known as Robertson of Brighton, who was an English divine, has been quoted as saying: “There are three things in the world that deserve no mercy, hypocrisy, fraud, and tyranny”.

  The people of Sudan wonder whether the dictator al-Bashir and his corrupt entourage are going to the dustbin of history through the polls, or being overthrown through mass uprising. That seems the Sixty-four-dollar question! We long to see it without waiting to happen! That has happened in both Modern and Ancient history.People should not lose hope; they were so patient beforebut they have to work and say at the same time and will win without a doubt. This is because the ruling regime is now in its weakest condition and even its closest supporters have abandoned it as if it were infested byScabies!  

Burrhus Frederic Skinner, commonly known as B. F. Skinner, the American psychologist, behaviorist, author, inventor, and social philosopher has been quoted as saying: “The environment will continue to deteriorate until pollution practices are abandoned.”

Reflections on the 10th Anniversary of the Operation long Arm

Reflections on the 10th Anniversary of the Operation long Arm

By Mahmoud A. Suleiman

Before going into the details of these reflections, I need to define as to what the Operation long Arm (OLA) is about. The (OLA) was the bold Military Operation with which the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) entered Khartoum in Broad Daylight 10 Years ago as of Thursday May 10th 2018. The (OLA) was led by the then its leader late Dr. Khalil Ibrahim Mohmed with the objective of taking the war far from the areas of the population of Darfur, who suffered ethnic cleansing and genocide by the enemy of the ruling regime of the National Islamic Front / National Congress Party led by the evil killer Génocidaire Marshall Omer Hassan Ahmed Bashir, who was waging proxy wars of attrition  using the tribal militias Janjaweed while he and his entourage remain safe away from the theater of the war in the capital Khartoum. Thus, the (OLA) was intended among many other objectives the use of the principle of taking the battle head-on into the enemy’s home.
