Bashir says committed to Islamic state in Sudan

The incumbent President Al-Bashir who campaigns for his reelection was addressing scholars and leaders of Islamic brotherhoods in Khartoum on Saturday. The issue of Sharia laws is presented as a theme against the SPLM candidate Yasir Arman who calls for its cancellation in order to maintain Sudan’s unity.

Presidential adviser Salah Gosh on Saturday in a speech made in Al Suki, Northern state, attacked opposition parties saying they agreed in Juba to abolish the Islamic laws. He also accused them of using the electoral campaign to advertise for a new secular state.

The NCP runner for Sudan president reaffirmed his commitment to the Islamic laws and the empowerment of the Islamic religion in the countr.; He further scoffed at the proposal of some political parties calling for the establishment of a secular, state and the abolition of the Public Order Act.

Bashir further called on the scholars, preachers and leaders of Sufi brotherhoods to maintaining the Islamic nation and religion by propagating Islam’s principles and precepts among Muslims.

He also commended the efforts of the late President Nimeiri who imposed a harsh and unpopular panel law in September 1983.

"Whatever we disagree with (Nimeiri) him politically, but we stress that he fought against the underworld and bars," Bashir said about the former Sudanese president who applied the Islamic law for the first time since the independence in 1956.

Arman denied recently NCP allegations that he had called to open bars and houses of prostitution he also said that the ruling party is using religion in politics but not really apply it.

"What is happening now is the use of religion in politics, and that has affected Islam," said Arman in a statement posted on his blog.

    Dear brothers and Sisters,

    This ciminal Bashier will learned through militray strength because he is Islamic extremist like Amahdina Jahad( Iran president). We have to deal with Bashier in 2011 because he insisted supporting the issue of sharia law to more imposed in Sudan.Sharia law was in the problem of war in 1983. Watch out!. We are ready any time mr Omer because we have mote tollerant with you to have the same country with you due to this mother fucker sharia laws.

    I encouraged each and every South Sudanese to read this article and give the best suggestion about CPA, whether we think Khartoum goverment will permit it or will test the capabilities of South Sudanese.

    In fact, the implementation of CPA will depends on how hard South Sudanese works together so that they make the best choice in the up coming elections.

    One of the ways that Omer Bashier government will dishonored this CPA like the way Jeffery Nimerie did is that if we South Sudanese elected Bashier to be the president of Sudan in 2010 election,then that will be true that we support the violation or dishonored our golden CPA and for sure , we will blame ourselves for uncertanity that we had invited. But if we South elected Yasir Arman, then it will be obvious that we secure part of CPA implementaions because Bashier dictatorship will no longer be in power. I believed that Bashier has been ignoring the CPA progress since the signing of it and that was the reason negotiation of keys issues pertening the CPA are in the deadlock till the present. We must vote him out because we have chanced in this CPA and Bashier governmnet can not dishonored the accord again like the one of 1972.

    Second, Bashier goverment can violate the CPA when his agents are elected in the 2010,so that he can involved in some fraudulent. I supported my south Sudanese to vote out DR Lam Akol this upcoming election because he is the closest friend to Bashier who can thought of uncertainity in the fevor of Bashier Government since we all know that Dr Akol has been and still residing with the Khartoum government.

    We must vote for Salva Kiir Mayardit regardless of some weakness and strengths in the South in this hard time/ 2010,and i think Bashier can not just involve his ill amd immoral sabotage with the South. Indeed, if we elected Dr Akol then we will regret for the problem that we invited which might involve the dishoring of CPA.

    Yes, 2011 will be the test that Bashier governmnet will do because of the an disputable issues that awaiting South Sudanese. We South Sudanese need to avoid another violation this CPA by not electing leaders that will not walk hard to take us to the other side of river( after 2011). CPA is just an agreement, we have to know that in our mindset. Now, some Southeners argued that their stake is only 2011,but that can not happen because the CPA tied it and we should not hope for the best outcome before seeing the result of 2010 in the favor of South interest. Please brothers and sisters, let judge things beyond our eyes level so that Bashier Government can not violate the CPA due to our selfishness. Thanks

      Wonderful Mr criminal on run, this will be an official excuses for Southerns to withdrawal from your government and be a nation far from Asslamic shira law. Yasir himself is most welcome to adopt South as his own family to live forever. Poor Arabs imagine how you carry the assassination against the christian player in of Nigeria in your places, poor Bashir and his albino mongrels.

            Stop accusing Dr Lam for nothing, your individual attitude toward him will never veto his dream World to come. Lam has a good plan of bringing, unity, peace, security, development and prosperity. Lam will be our choice if people of South Sudan wants to vote for him. Dinkas boy with your bigotry idea, the choice is yours, if you hates him just end in western World and surrender South forever. preaching fruit of discrimination will not benefit a single peace lover accept corrupt type of people like yourself. Lam is a man with knowledge of better economy and moving forward. Kiir used to work with arabs before he joined Garang when Garang enter the bush, he was one of those security intelligents who slaughter people physical even without prove that your are guilty. Bona and Alier are pure collaborators for their entire lives and now they are in connection with GOSS, after all I see you turning crocodile eyes on them. Why are you so silent with those traitors but putting your target on innocent son of Nuba?

            Did you hate him because of him party or his Nuba background? Dr Lam as a wise and intelligent man deserve credit for both his party and Nubian background. We dream and yarn for democracy, exactly that SPLA is not showing a footprint of taking us forward therefore they deserv to oppose, SPLA must not be our only monopoly in South, SPLA must be challenge, pressure and oppose in order to work beyond their weak standard, if Kiir still dragging his corrupt SPLA part slowly then DC will be our next choice. This is an obvious reason for this newly party to win the game. Lam himself has done better and better then those of Kiir who claim leadership for nothing, should we go for election my friend, for sure Kiir will lose him position to Lam beside Riek or Igga.

            Lam is well known as an intelligent man who has future, leadership strategy, goals, mission and objectives to be achieved. If you don’t believe me go and make a survey about the two contestants ie Kiir and lam and you will surprise with the outcomes. Another reason that will affect the survey is that most people fear to reveal their own plan to SPLA supporters. Insecurity has become the worse threat and this is number one target of SPLA-DC, it is not about changing dinkas but improving the situations that has ruined our lives, future and long struggleed dreams.

            Logic is around the corners in Juba city with SPLA-Dc slogan on his 4wheel drive

              Leave Dinka Boy alone. Claiming that he is educated yet reasoning and talking like a primitive. His attitude has no ground in the world of visioners, peacemakers, uniterians, state builders, and professionalists. He is the kind of person that the laws will deal with in the future south Sudan country for he will not behave like a grown-up, but cause division that will land him behind bars.
              He must change and talk maturely and constructively or else he will be an outcast among professionals.

              Criminal President Omer you are counting days, try to go to the IGAD summit in Kenya,for sure Mr President you will never again see the territory of the Sudan.
              We are not against Islam. But we are against Islam practices when they put it in the politic of the government.

      Well said Mr. Dinka Boy, we had enough from Arabs already, even we stopped listening to them anymore because we are walking away.

      Please my southern brothers/sisters, do the walk and let the walk talk to islamic nation. The Eastern Africa countries had already welcome south Sudan to their region and had given up the north to North Africa.

        Dear mr. President,
        If you are committed to Islamic State in a country with religious diversities, then Mr. President you have called for the disentegration of this country. I believe that religion(Islam, Christianity) or others belongs to those who practice it and our Sudanese state belong to all of us as citizens of this country. Mr. president, separating the religion from the state can you unite our great country. Mr. President and your party, you have the choice to make between our country Sudan and Islam as your religion or you will have your Islam much as you like as a state religion in your own North Sudan State, we won’t be a party to Islamic state.

        The nation will speak for itself. I think he might have misunderstand what our chairman mentioned... Kiir said, freedom of religion in southern Sudan is welcome. But he did not say that Sharia law is welcome... No one is going to fool southerners, it is mention in the book of life that, we are not blind and we have eyes to see/look/watch and ears to hear/listen/understand and brains to think/momeries... We will never forget what we heard, seen and felt. The TRUST will speak for itself. REMEMBER, PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE - ANIMALS ARE ANIMALS

      Hey Mr Dinka Boy,

      I do really understand your main devotion toward SPLM/SPLA. But, However, there is one thing you didn’t realized in term of Salva Kiir Miyardit’s Administration. I believe that it is not the first time for you and I plus the rests of the other Southern Sudanese people to come and know what the Khartoum Government is doing to us we Southerners. What matter to us we Southern Sudanese is just a matter of leadership. If our Southern Sudanese people don’t know the system of how the Government work, then how are we going to expelled or dethroned Omar Bashir from power?. To expell Omar Bashir from power, we Southern Sudanese people should have to indoctrinate ourselves with some form of laws with which we should governing ourselves instead of working with the laws of Khartoum.

      Yes, as you said in your comment that "Omar Bashir is supporting and wanting Sharia Law to be imposed in Sudan". That one is true because I can not blame Omar Bashir even if I know that he is my prominent enemy since our leader Salva Kiir Miyardit had said it last week when he was addressing the thousands of people in Juba and said that "Muslims are free to spread Islam in the Southern Sudan Cities starting from Juba, Yei, Torit, Malakal, Rumbek, Bentiu and all areas in Southern Sudan". This was a speech made by our President Salva Kiir Miyardit last week in Juba. If Salva Kiir Miyardit made that speech, then its mean that he agree to have Sharia Law to be practiced in Southern Sudan. If he doesn’t agree before, then Salva Kiir should not spoken out that speech completely and that is where I critized him that he is not going to win the Election. Mr Dinka Boy, As I told you from the very beginning that I’m one of the JEECH La MEER(RED ARMY ) like you my friend and I do have my support on the SPLM/SPLA. When I said SPLM/SPLA, I don’t mean Salva Kiir Miyardit alone. I mean whoever standing firm and face the risky for the seek of his people is the one that I can support. Salva Kiir Miyardit is my leader and it is not the first time for me to know him. I do know Salva Kiir Miyardit in many places such as Tharpam, Panyidu, Jokmir, Nairijil and so many other places. Why Salva Kiir Miyardit act like he don’t know the politic?

      What cause the so call 22 years in war was not something simple to us especially we Southern Sudanese people. It is something that we will never forget in our life, but Salva Kiir Miyardit want to make it very simple to himself. Second, you said that let vote for Salva Kiir Miyardit. Why do we mentioned something which is quiet obvious? If I’m your visitor and you welcome me to you house,and then you gave me the food, will I be able to ask you which part of the food should I have to eat first? You already gave or brought the food and you deserve me to eat it. So,it is my responsibility to eat the food whatever way I want it. You, I and many other Southern Sudanese know exactly whom are we going to vote for him. In your own ideology, do you believe that I can for Omar Bashir or Lam Akol? I don’t think whether I can do that. If Salva Kiir Miyardit doesn’t know what to do, then he should have to hand the authority to someone who is competent and ready to face the danger on behave of his people.

      Third, you said that "Omar Bashir Government will dishonored this CPA like the way Jeffery Nimeiri did". My friend Dinka Boy, CPA was already been dishonored from the time when Dr John Garang pass away. If CPA was not dishonored, then fighting should not erupted in the area of Abyei, Ruweng Biemnom and Panaruu. So, I don’t thoroghly agree with you totally. You can imagine in Salva Kiir Miyardit Administration, everybody is not respecting the protocols and the systems of the SPLM/SPLA. Do you think that it is rightful for Salva Kiir Miyardit to allow everybody to run for the position of Governorship? As a rule, it is not meaningful to allow your Associates to contest for just a matter of Governorship. First of all, the Freedom we are seeking is still in hand of Arabs. So, what if the Arabs win the Election just for instance, will these Governors in Southern Sudan still run for the position of Governorship? Why we don’t evaluated things first before making an action?

      Lastly, I can tell you that in my entire life, I have never advocated Lam Akol Regime. I know Lam Akol very well and I hope he is not the right person to be in suit of leadership. Dr Lam Akol is a "Sycophant person"-someone who supported somebody else for the favor to get something. So, Lam Akol is supporting Omar Bashir for the matter to invested himself since he don’t have budget in the SPLM/SPLA.
      So, the only person whom I really blame is Salva Kiir Miyardit.Salva Kiir Miyardit fail to address the current issues facing the Southern Sudanese and work for his own interest like when corruption appear in his office to be the first issue. Salva Kiir Miyardit fail in many ways. For example, why does Salva Kiir allow Omar Bashir to campaign in Juba? Again, why Salva Kiir supported Omar Bashir from going to jail? Voting Salva Kiir Miyardit to be a President is not a big deal, but Salva Kiir is in his own footstep and not the footstep of the Late Dr John Garang. I really blame Salva Kiir for his weakness.

        Real Justification why Southerners took up arms and a live signal that it is not over yet. Besides, it’s a whistle to vote for separation 200%.

        Elections excavates the true color of NCP and all Arabs. What unites them is Islam which will never be separated from State, whatsoever.

        Does other brothers like Isaiah Abraham still think we should vote for Albashir???

    Dear all,

    No wonder that killer Bashir would use religion as his running mate in order to eliminate and handicapped Yasir from these Islamic criminals. Though Arman has no chance to wins over these criminals, Bashir would use this topic to his advantage in many occasions to come. I really don’t give a dime they can applied it to its fullest if they want it because come April 2011, South will be independent state and that’s no doubt in my mind.

    Bashir and his cronies can bark in their desert and won’t affect us in the South. We would be strong and vibrate state under president Kiir & VP Riek.

    It does not suprised me when he spoke like this, I do consider them as the same element whom are trying to distory every human minds and spirits of each of us. The same what he does was so similar with Salva Kiir had done week ago. Their words are same it looke like they have carying the same message to delivers to a all sudanese and to imposed the Slamic like what Nimire had done in eighties. I was so shock when our leader had say the same things like what omer has said it today, that mean they playing the same things only the people in sudan will shoose as well as Southern may shoose whether they want to allow to elect the Salva Kiir to use his key to slamize the people of south Sudan and as well the Persident doing the same thing to let whole country to work under sharia laws.

    its we the people of south to whom will be the best persident of the people of sudan to shoose their leader not a betrayer leader.

      Why do you spoil your dignity my brother?. It is not hard to talk and adopt some reasonable courses of thinking so that they can help you to think appropriately.

      I don,t agree with you when you said the speech of Omer Bashier when he support the imposition of Sharia law in Sudan is similiar with the speech of Salva Kiir when he said that Muslim should be in Sudan as long its don,t interfer with the politics.

      In deed, you don,t know the meaning of Sharia law and muslim and that is why you mixed them in your argument. Sharia law is the law that was introduced by Jeffery Nimerie inorder Sudan will be rules by the law of islamic system and that system will denied the christianity and other believe in the entire Sudan;due to that the law will b incorporated so that the country will be underdertood as an Arab state.

      While Muslim is an islamic identity like christianity. Muslim is just abelieved that depends on someone choice and that was the reason Salva Kiir said South Sudanese have no problem with Muslim or islam. Now, how many muslim are in the South? lots, but we can not chase them away or forced them to christianity because its is their choice,and we can not killed muslim residing in the South because of their islam as their true religion.No dear brother.

      When mixing contrary speeches of Salva and Omer, it denotes that you are blemishing your dignity and the nature of your ancestors. please strain the way you reasons other you lack how to argue and root out the substancial from unsubstancial.

        Omar al Bashir killer.

        Two things are not going to happen in Sudan just bear in your mind. You have committed crimes against humanity in Sudan and you say, you are committed to Islamic State in Sudan. How stupid are you.? First of all, Sudan is not an Islamic nation although you guys very luckily to be welcome in Africa Continent to make Trade and later you guys turned to get ride on us in this Country, we will do everything as we can in order to eliminate this Islamic agendas in Sudan. In the worldwide, I am sure this Islamic is going to discontinuing, because there is no faithful when the Religion have put agendas of killing innocents people in the world. It look to me that, some African people in some where in the North Africa nation and West Africa nation will soon starting Isolating these Arab as a matter of fact that, people have learned enough from the Darfurian which Omar al Bashir had murdering them and this Sudan nation will be the Christian nation for sure.
