Bashir congratulates Saudi monarch on victory over Yemen rebels


November 9, 2009 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir phoned today Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah congratulating him for “victory” over Yemeni rebels on the borders, state media reported.

Bashir was quoted by Sudan official news agency (SUNA) as hailing the Saudi armed forces for “defeating and cleansing the remnants of traitors and outlaws who wanted to undermine the safety and security of the kingdom”.

King Abdullah thanked Bashir for his call and his concern stressing his resolve on sustaining his country’s security and expressed gratitude for “Sudan government and people” for their “honorable” stances towards Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia launched air strikes on rebels in northern Yemen last week after Shi’ite Muslim insurgents crossed the border into the kingdom and said they had taken control of an area called Jabal Dukhan.

The world’s top oil exporter has become increasingly anxious about instability in Yemen, which is facing a Shi’ite insurgency in the north, separatist sentiment in the south and a growing threat from resurgent al Qaeda fighters.

The Yemeni government has accused Iran of backing the rebels.

            We don’t want to wipe dinkas. Dinkas are our brothers no matter what they do in the southern sudan. I know most of them are doing bad things but they far better than arabs. We just need to change the way they think of others in south. We don’t need them die. Let us unite ourselves. No arabs. Arabs are like snakes. when you invite them, they don’t want to live. Let us call ourselves junubians instead of tribe names.Nationhood not peoplehood. thanks all

Now you talk of Eqautoria,equatoria were place where we go to marriage in cheaper price dowry during the war and arab nation were our enemies.since the creation in southern sudan ,we regarded you equatoria as vulnerable people who have no historical circle in war,your work in southern and sudan is only to wait soft food prepare by greater Dinka warriors to eat. plse,keep it secret,don,t attampt to converted our attention from the enemies we are for in sudan because we good in fighting external enemy.

          Dear Muor Cikok
          Your comment could be right if you were to tell to Oduko that we Dinkas are your brothers. And unfair to praise Arabs if they have killed Dinkas.But getting down to the stage of saying that Equatoria was a place where Dinkas went to marry cheap women, I stopped you there, it is Un Dinka, there is no place in the history of the Dinkus where they travelled in order to go and marry cheap women. Coming to contribution made by Southerners, many Equatroian have fought seriously whether in the SPLM/A or the SLM (Anya Nya 1.So, do not bother yourself with Oduko Comment’s because he do not know is talking about.

        I belief you are real terrorist otherwise, you can not support Hassan Omar al Bashir killer persident in Africa.

        I know you are from Luo Tribe any way, but the real question is, what is next to Lam Akol Ajwain if Omar al Bashir get arrested.? What is next for your uncle Dr, traitor Lam Akol Ajwain if the Southern Sudanese people vote for Inedpendent in 2011.? You can see congratulates Saudi forces for defeating Yemen Rebels or traitor meanwhile he is keeping traitors with him like Lam Akol and many others Southern Sudanese. Basically, Omar al Bashir knows that, the Sudanese Rebels are strongly figters and that is why he is thanking Saudi Arabia forces for defeatist Yemen Rebels.

        Dear Oduko,
        You are out of the point President Bashier congtratulations has nothing to do with our internal problems and your Uncle bashier have failed his responsibilites by not bring peace in Darfur and Eastern Sudan as you know there are more than 10 rebels factions in Sudan and he did not managed to bring those rebels on round table talk and he encourage the king who uses the force to kill the people, which mean Bashier is killer(muderer)that is why he thanks King Abdullah because he defeated the rebelsand kill so many others.
        With out Dinkas you would have not have this freedom to put your fuckens comment in this website and if you read the history of Sudan Tribune,It was established in year 2005 after the SPLM and NCP signed the peace in Naivasha Kenya under the Dinka leadership, don,t encourage Your uncle bashier to use SAF against Dinka and that will not happen and take me right from this angle because when it happen it will not be Dinka war with arabs but it will be for the whole South as you have seen during the last 21 years of fighting unless if you were not mature enough by that time to know how the war broke out in Sudan and i personal adivised you to read the Sudan history.
        With out Dinka you would have still stay in slavery untill now but with their blood sheded you became free dog in your own corner start hating dinka for no reaseon.
        Second for you to be Southern Sudanese ,you need to be focusing on the South future that mean you should avoid tribalism in your behaviour like,May be you will be future leader in this belove country of Southern Sudan but with your hatred you will not rule any body.
        Tribalism ,Nepotism will take us no were in South but let us united as one nation with one moto/role to match in 2011 for our independence than your useless comments.
        Mr Bashier thanks has nothing to do with Dinka and therefore you should put a brake to your idiot comments,
        Dinka with other welbeing in the South brough freedom of speech and freedom of movemnet as you can experience by your own.Some Equartorian knowth the goodness of unity among the tribes like James Wani Igga who start with SPLM/A leadership eversince,OButo Mamur is the other figure in this history of Sudan and my friend you stop talking against some tribes as you mentioned Dinka.

        yeah, Oduko.
        indeed,Equatorians were strong collaborators of NCP during the era of war.and that is why you enjoying that freedom of being in equatoria region.mad man, Dinka is the oxygen and we will destroy you before chase the arabs.During the war your sisters and mothers were sexually molest by jallabas in juba, torit,kapoeta yet you said nothing.we Dinka disapprove the arabs vices and protest and this resulted in a silver plate inform of CPA.

    Im wondering why Bashir has to congratulates Saudi Monarch on victory over Yemen rebels like he did defeated rebels before in Sudan? Omar must have to step down peacefully without being overrun by rebels in couple of months.

      This is Intra Arab religious war between Shi’ites and Sunnis. Sunis being the Saudis and majority of jellaba arab Sudanese are attempting to make themselves part of the arabs religious wars. It is the nature and intention of Beshir to cause a religious, racial or world wars.

      Separatism is a natural human way and that was why Sudan was separated from Egypt as Sudan was a province of Egypt.

      Beshir congratulation was a begging cry and favor request to Saudia Arabia not Yemeni separatist.

      It has a religious war connotation to it too. You may not understand because you have no understanding.

        Eeeee "U" brada ODUKU, OR whatever your names is which I don’t want to pronounce amicably because of your negative attitude towards one ethnic community in the whole of the Sudan. Can you tell me how many ethnic majorities group are there in the Sudan? My advice to you is that close up your mouth or else if God closed your mouth on Dinka’s you will not open it again for life. Remember the history of the guy who wanted the whole of south Sudan to be cleared for an agricultural purpose!! Did he survived or has his plan succeed either, the same thing will applied to you guys. Wanted men in the Sudan!!!!!! Otheya, Big logic and the newly emerge Oduku, pliz!pliz!pliz if anyone come across these fellows men, you will be warded for a total of 2 millions in return tax free.
        Start now what are you waiting for!!!!!

      Hi Oduku,

      You are not an Equatorain, bes its sound paralleled was what I know about Equatoria. You however want to collide the people of South Sudan but you are purely an Arab. Equatorian hate Arabs more then any one in the South Sudan, thus first war initiated by Equatorians in Torit and also in Kajokeje many Arabs traders were mistreated in 1970- 1980S that lead to the aborgation of the area. What I know about you is the normal tusk that Khartoum is doing. Dear GREAT Monjang don’t listen to that fishy words from a dam dead minded is not an Eqautorian, but is creating tension so that we hate ourselves and for them is gain. Equatorians are our brothers and sisters for they will not even accept such evil plan of finishing Dinka/ Monyjang all in the Sudan. For those who are defending criminal Bashir it is a great crime to do that and they shall be the victim any way for no good reason. I am a real Dinka but I should not fear such terrorism alarm from coward group. Arabs knew what we are in Southern Sudan they will not accept war between us again.

      I argue the web authority to restrict such comment for its can cause trouble if not well understood by low minded people.As its may mishandle by action against innocent ones.
