June 3, 2008 (PARIS) — Speaking about the massive displacement of civilians from the disputed Abyei, a Darfur rebel leader said what has been done in Abyei is a remake of what Khartoum did in western Sudan.

The International Organisation for Migration said 50,000 to 60,000 people had fled to Agok, 25 km south of Abyei, and neighbouring villages, while another 10,000 were believed to have walked south toward the town of Turalei.

Abdel-Wahid al-Nur the leader of Sudan Liberation Movement condemned the displacement of Abyei population saying “world have to think twice about dealing with the government of the National Congress Party.”

Al-Nur accused Khartoum of deliberately igniting violence in the disputed Abyei in order to change the demographic composition of the region and the settle Arab tribes to ensure its control over oil fields in the contested area.

The rebel leader further said what Khartoum did in Darfur with regard to the displacement of civilians and the settlement of Arab new comers from neighboring countries is now implemented in Abyei.

He said that this "Islamist government" extrapolated this policy to other parts of Sudan in order to ensure its hegemony on the country. He cited the forcible relocation of Kajabar population and the projected settlement of Egyptian farmers in central Sudan stated of White Nile.

Al-Nur added that the Sudanese government proves again through the non implementation of Abyei Protocol that it has no consideration to the signed deal and do not recognise the authority of the international institutions. "They just know the language of violence and not admit democracy because it will exclude them." He said.

The rebel leader also said the US envoy Richard Williamson had a very instructive stay in Sudan where he had the occasion to verify the true nature of the ruling National Congress Party.

He further exhorted the US administration particularly and the international community generally should learn from this experience that their current approach with Sudanese government has failed.

The U.S. has suspended talks to normalize relations with Sudan, U.S. and Sudanese officials said Tuesday.

    Bravo Abdel-Wahid al-Nur, Am seeing Sudan now with better leaders and to my suprise, those who care about Sudan like a new born baby are Africans. what about Jallaba who claim the citizenship of Sudan? they wanted to destroy Sudan but they will not have where to go, they will be like a watchman who was adviced by his boss to stay at home for sometime but thinking that he was sacked from the job and deficate in his place of work but was called back in shortest time but it was hard to start to work unless cleans the cheat in the place. ’leave the place better then you get it’.

    What an alarming condition to be terrified by NCP headed Government which is a direct act of terrorism.

    Abel-Wahid al-Nur statement “world have to think twice about dealing with the government of the National Congress Party.” neeeds to be rekindled for dying at an infant stage without hearing all these shits about NCP was better for Patriots.

    NCP leaders must read "Kush kingdom" and its invention of democracy which is the world best leaders choice-but from Sudan.

    International Community is even paying deft ears to the dying and displaced-streety Sudanese which tells their direct colaberation with NCP government.

    Sudanese, we are all one but not in acts and thoughts as seen in Nonsense-doing government.

    Learn alot.

    Bravo, Abdel-Wahid al-Nur.

    You are good in comment to have mentioned so many hidden sins of the Arabs’Governmet (NCP)of Bashir.

    You are the right person to take some actions as you did in Western part of the country to depend your people from traitors. Could you come to Sudan from France to make hot orders to your army from the western Sudan to give more pressure to this brutal regime such that they leave you powers to develope Sudan.

    The ball is rolling who will kick it into the net is not known???????---

    But I am sure Bahire is going to cause panalty in eighteen book soon.

    World communities are not seriouse and many lives will be lost in all corners of the Republic of The Sudan, like darfur and Abyei now. Please take care of NCP Al-Nur and get rid of it.
