The Conference elected Abdel-Rahim Ali as Chairman of the Movement and Mohamed Bashir Abdel Hadi as Rapporteur.

During the convention there were calls for the election of President Omer al-Bashir to the position of Secretary General to express support to the president who is indicted by the International Criminal Court prosecutor.

The seventh convention issued a set of recommendations on the Darfur crisis and the implementation of peace agreements.

It also called for openness to other political forces as the current stage requires the participation of all to "counter threats that the country facing"

The partisans of Hassan Turabi, leader the Popular Conference Party, boycotted after describing it as "governmental convention."

    May Almighty God save Sudan from the so-called Sudanese Islamic Movement. This Turabi/Taha movent is the one that put the Sudanese in the list of world terrorists and second world most dangerous people in our planet after Plastinians.

    Most world religious movements call for peace, love and commitment to making bridges between poor and rich in form of charities, But Turabi/Taha religion movement calls for death to political oppositions, SPLM, Darfurians, America, Israel and etc...

    Sudanese Muslims must come out clearly and condamn this movent and work harder to isolate this group because what this movement’s doing is a threat to Islam as a religion.

    Any religion’s movent that have no courage to accept failures is evil and must get out from other people’s lives.

    Sudanese people suffered enough and it’s time to change this suffering into hope since ICC declared its stands by them and commitment to bring this suffering into an end.

    We need ICC to reveal full list of Darfur’s genocide perpetrators. so that Sudanese must know which one is which amongst NIF members.

    O’Lord, I am not calling for the death of Turabi/Taha’s Movement, but make it change to be peaceful and friendly to humanity.

      Please ,let me take this chance to rebuke the evil image of the Sudan.The fundamental problems is what is rooted in ISLAMIC fundamentalists example the election of the so called Taha to be secretary general of ISLAMIC movement is questionable.The fact is that this movement must be indicted by ICC once more again otherwise the current indictment is invalid.Because the ISLAMIC MOVEMENT OF THE SUDAN is soul creator to all the Sudanese EVIL history. That is why they can not separate the religion and government yet they are bands of thugs who do not even know what GOD IS.Bring them to justices so that SUDAN can be free.They have controlled everything from mosques to the GOVERNMENT, so that the innocent muselims of the Sudan are betrays warlord or fanatic which is not the case.The true muslims are there but, denied acess to honor God the way suppose to be practice.
