Al Intibaha launched early in 2006, founded by the veteran National Congress Party figure Al Tayeb Mustafa, President Al Bashir’s uncle, as a medium to express opposition to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed with the Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) in 2005. The paper pushed for the partition of Sudan on the grounds that north and south constitute irreconcilable poles, racially, religiously, culturally and politically, and voiced the fear that the SPLM might eventually dominate the country. Eventually, a political party, the Just Peace Forum (JPF), evolved around it. Once South Sudan seceded the paper under- took a new mission: The expulsion of the remnant SPLM in (north) Sudan, and called for the immediate ban of the party in the country. Over time, Al Intibaha became the most popular political daily in Sudan. It enjoys a readership far exceeding other newspapers. Today, it agitates for the enforcement of a strict regime of Sharia in the country, a military solution for the conflicts in South Kordofan and the Blue Nile, and the severing of all ties with South Sudan. It championed the campaign against the June 2011 framework deal signed with the SPLM in (north) Sudan and is currently leading a fierce campaign against the March 2012 framework agreement on the status of nationals in the other state, which was signed between Sudan and South Sudan in Addis Ababa. Tayeb Mustafa is the owner and chairman of the board of directors of Al Intibaha. Its editor- in-chief is Al Sadiq Al Rizeigy. Columnists include a number of veteran Islamist journalists and NCP members including Abd Al Mahmoud Al Karanki, Rabie Abd Al Aati and Ishaq Ahmed Fadlalla whose journalistic skills were honed in the florid press of the National Islamic Front (NIF) of the 1980s.
