UN report confirms South Sudan support to Darfur rebels, Khartoum


March 5, 2013 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese foreign ministry has renewed its accusations that Juba supports Sudanese rebel groups, saying a recent United Nations report confirmed their presence in South Sudan.

A UN panel of independent experts established since 2005 to monitor the arms embargo said in a report released recently says that the Sudanese Air Force uses a new weapons system, S-8 air-to-ground rockets with thermobaric warheads, "which implies a quantum leap in their effectiveness".

The report further says the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) established "a large base for around 800 armed fighters" outside Bentiu, capital of Unity State and also another base in Timshaha in Western Bahr el-Ghazal State.

"This report represents a testimony of an international body that cannot be accused of being biased to Sudan", said the new spokesperson of the Sudanese foreign ministry Abubakr Al-Sideeg Mohamed Al-Amin on Tuesday.

Al-Amin went to add that Sudan has been demanding that South Sudan should refrain from hosting rebel movements and to disengage with the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), as provided in the agreements signed by the two countries.

Reacting to this report, Hamid Sideeg, head of the Organisational Secretariat of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) ruled out any move from the United Nations following this report adding that hostility towards Sudan "comes mainly from the UN Security Council". It was the UN Security Council that referred the war in Darfur to the International Criminal Court in 2005 leading the indictment of senior officials including President Omar al-Bashir.

The two neighbours signed a security arrangements on 27 September 2012 providing to activate a buffer zone on the border but failed to implement as well as the other remaining deals.

The United States and other western countries have in the past called on Juba to stop its support to Sudanese rebel groups but South Sudan, which seceded from Sudan in 2011 has dismissed the accusations and denied harbouring or supporting them.

      It remains for UN to produce its report, hopefully, it will contradict Sudan as Uganda did. What is certain is that Sudan has heard a rumor that JEM rebels have now acquire a missile that will hit Khartoum. Also, UNSC is trying to pass a resolution odering sudan to negotiate with SPLA-N in 5 days

          Calm down, Sudani. Question: If a country attacks, sequesters and occupies lands that are veritably within the borders of another country and doggedly refuses to return these territories, despite the fact that they were part of the South at the time of the Condominium period up until the essential date of 1956... is that country evincing a desire for peace?

            The border between north and south Sudan is defined in the CPA as the boundary line of 1956, the year Sudan became independent. At independence Kafia Kingi was part of the south. The area was transferred to northern administration in 1960. Under the terms of the CPA, therefore, it is due to be returned to Southern Sudan, to the administration of Western Bahr el Ghazal state.

              The Kafia Kingi enclave was part of Bahr al-Ghazal province when Sudan gained independence in 1956. In 1960 it was transferred to Darfur, which had become a province of Sudan in 1916.

                    The Machakos Protocols constitute and resulted in the CPA. The agreement’s provisions relating to the border detailed and instructed both parties to respect the 1956 border. The CPA prescribed a specific date from which we would adjudicate territorial holdings between us. This date is inviolate... meaning it is not to be violated...

So why have you not returned the Kafia Kingi enclave to South Sudan’s administrative jurisdiction when it was indisputably part of the South at the time of the Condominium period up until the essential date of 1956? It would seem that you dishonoured your commitments or "promise". It seems that way, doesn’t it?

Whether or not you acknowledge the fact that decades of war affected, altered and determined the provincial borders is rather irrelevant.

                  The British were [for the most part] well aware of the tribal extent of communities on both sides of the provincial border at the time of the Condominium — with this being pertinent to the Southern territories that you occupy. The British governed these territories as part of the southern province for almost a century up until Sudan was granted independence in 1956.

    Options in the Plan: Initiation or Death / Initiation and Death

    All who wish to enter the New Age must undergo an "energy activation" or "rebirth", usually marked by a subjective trance-induced "light experience" where one meets either a "spirit guide" or one’s "higher self" (no difference since all is one). The resulting "altered state of consciousness" will eventually lead to a "Luciferic initiation" into the "new humanity", or a submission to Lucifer as the leading divinity representing the Logos.

    Those who reject this "Luciferian Initiation" will be "Sent on their next life". In other words, worship Lucifer, or DIE.
