Sudan’s ex-PM launches fierce attack on Kiir’s visit to Israel


December 25, 2011 (KHARTOUM) – The former Sudanese Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition National Umma Party (NUP) Al-Sadiq al-Mahdi denounced a visit made by South Sudan president Salva Kiir to Israel this week describing it as “devilish”.

Kiir embarked on his first visit to Israel since South Sudan became an independent state last July. He met with senior Israeli officials including president Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense minister Ehud Barak and foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman.

The low-profile visit was expected to focus on repatriating illegal African migrants who sneaked into the Jewish state through Egypt’s borders over the last several years. Most of the infiltrators were from Sudan and Eritrea.

Al-Mahdi addressing an opposition gathering on Saturday warned of serious repercussions as a result of Kiir’s visit to Israel.

“The Jewish state is eager to establish relationships with new allies after it lost its traditional allies such as Turkey and the regime of [deposed President Hosni] Mubarak in Egypt” al-Mahdi said.

“The timing of the visit is inappropriate and supports the arguments of separatists in the north and puts the political forces calling for good neighborly relations with the South in a deep embarrassment” he added.

Al-Mahdi went on to say that the visit is “wrong and whoever thought about it is a devilish and a traitor and let us down [us] who are keen on close relations between the states of north and south”.

This week the Sudanese government said it was concerned about Israel-South Sudan ties because it affects the country’s interests and its national security. Khartoum said that Israel and its lobby groups constitute an important part of the international campaign to "foment" the conflict in Sudan’s western region of Darfur.

    Hahahaha!That is why Mr. Mahammed Ali, Sam Eto’o, Master and Jalaby are so quiet indeed. Don’t cry as early as possible Mahdi, you are going to face the South Sudan soon unless you leave Abyei and Heglig as early as possible so that we remain in good relationship with North. This time we are more than serious about Khartoum aggression against South Sudanese teritories.

      Why is so big a deal when South Sudan president visited Jews State as a devilish? how many time Bashir visited Iran and no any Southern official complained about it. yea Sudan is an enemy to Israel but we are not. just come down man, it just diplomatic visit, nothing will hurt North about visit. South have a full right to visit any country without question as North does it. stop crying like baby.

            Here is news flash for Al-Mahdi, South Sudan has the choice now to grants Israelis an air-base inside South Sudan for any close airstrike of any terrorist that support the killing of Israelis. The more you northerners stick your noses into South Sudanese affairs the more you not going to like the outcome.

He is quite right in saying that the timing of the Kiir’s visit to Israel was inappropriate given to the tension our two brotherly countries namely Sudan and RoSS are experiencing right now!! The visit by Kiir adds nothing only mistrust between our countries! Let Israel carry its own cross as RoSS has nothing to do with its

It is obvious that Israel is in desperate need for new allies and thus its only ambition is to quickly establish false affiliation with RoSS so as to manipulate the naive leadership of SPLA/M mafia against Sudan a is traditional enemy of Israel! So, unless SPLA/M wants war with Sudan otherwise the visit is a political suicide by SPLA/M’s Salva Kiir Mayardit!

For your information, SSLA/M and SSDA are revolutionary movements, their main target is to topple the regime of Salva Kiir and free the people of South Sudan from the tyranny and corruption of that tainted regime of SPLA/M mafia led by Kiir and some cliques!!

War doesn’t solve problems, SPLA/M militia tried to win the war militarily for at least 21 years wasting at least 2.5 million lives of innocent South Sudanese without any achievement whatsoever until the militia was rescued by the Comprehensive peace Agreement brooked by President Al Bashir of NCP who felt sorry for the anguish our poor citizens were going through during...

                      Thus, neither SSLA/M nor SPLA/M will win this war militarily! That is why it’s improtant for both rebels to sit down and try to settle matters peacefully before we unnecessarily waste lives and resources fighting a losing battle and come back later on to resolve matters through peaceful means! like SPLA/M waste of lives during 1980s, 1990s and 2000s...

I suppose SPLA/M didn’t accept the amnesty because it didn’t answer its objectives!

    You are the most confused arab who don’t read between the line. You ruled Sudan twice, but you failed to solve the problem. What made your country hate Israel so much while they never done anything wrong to you? Most arab countries such as Jordan and Egypt have relationship with Israel, but Sudan didn’t condemn their relationship with Israel. Why South Sudan?

    It is you and your likes to blame for the failed policies which divided Sudan, you are just making illusion.

    to visit Israel three times next year so al-Mahdi will cry until he keeps quiet. There’s nobody to interfere against our relationship Israel. The Jewish State is our ally historically and we will stay as friends until the world judgment day and you will have nothing to do about it. Jewish state of Israel and Christian state of South Sudan will be allies forever. Therefore, stop being noisy.

    Mr. Sadiq al Mahdi you must shut up

    This is not the time when Sudan government is blocking Israel’s passport, this time around we Southern Sudanese have separate Affairs and GOSS will welcome any nation around the nation. You guys forget it your dream being dominating Sudan in 60 years, there is a possibility of isolation of Khartoum from the rest of Sudanese African tribes this is not a joke

      Not GOSS any more but RSS (Republic of South Sudan), just a piece of correction.

      Yes, Sadiq Al-Mahdi is making unnecessary noise. He ruled (not governed) Sudan twice and what did he do? He massacred South Sudanese in hundreds of thousands.

      Now we are independent and so he better shuts up and leaves us with our comprehensive diplomacy with whichever country in the whole world.

        I strongly belief that, your correction on GOSS which I have mention early was partially correct. Please just look the seal of South Sudan first. It said, government of South Sudan which mean same thing as GOSS. The RSS actual can reflected the first Republican of South Sudan Party and that is why when you see this title but it mean same thing as GOSS therfore, there is nothing wrong.

    Shame on you goofy former prime minister. I know you are trying to appease your fucken Omar Al-bashir and his NCP thugs, but that cannot make you a leader of the South to criticise the moved that our president Salva Kiir Mayardit made to Israel. Mr. prime minister, you lost chance to bring peace and unite the country when you were prime minister, but instead thought of wiping off Southerners.

    Northerners, in particular Al-Sadiq al-Mahdi should bear in their mind that South Sudan is independent country and deserves to have friend with whomever it wish.
    so south Sudan is not long part of Sudan or Arab/Islam country.North Sudan parties should focus on their affair and leave south Sudan alone.

      Sadiq al madi must leave us alone south Sudan is a free country. We have the right to choose Somalia, Yemen or any other country to be our friend. There is no specific time to make friendship.bashir went to Iran just the other day. Did we cry? Madi must not put his long nose to our affairs this time. Time has gone you slaughter our chiefs in the south including my own father

    You will shout, curse, cry or threaten but that will not change anything. S. Sudan is an independent state entitled have ties with whichever country they choose, so stop poking your nose where it doesn’t belong.
