Sudan’s Bashir says CIA and Mossad behind recent opposition accords


December 27, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir lashed out again at opposition forces and rebel coalition of the Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) and described them as agents, traitors and mercenaries for cooperating with the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Israeli intelligence service (Mossad).

Bashir, who was speaking during a rally with Sufi sect supporters in Hajj Yusuf in Khartoum on Saturday, claimed that the CIA and Mossad were behind the accords signed by the SRF and opposition parties recently known as the “Paris Declaration", "Sudan Call" and the "New Dawn".

The Sudanese leader also questioned the strength of his opponents domestically and whether they have any presence on the ground or supporters.

On December 3rd, Sudanese political and armed opposition forces and civil society organizations signed the “Sudan Call” accord in Addis Ababa calling for ending the war, dismantlement of the one-party state, achievement of a comprehensive peace and democratic transition in the country.

This was preceded by the signing of the “Paris Declaration” last August between the SRF and the National Umma Party (NUP) headed by al-Sadiq al-Mahdi which calls for a comprehensive solution involving all the political forces including rebel groups. It further stresses on the need to create a conducive environment in order to hold a genuine national dialogue.

Bashir launched a national dialogue initiative last January and urged political opposition and rebel groups to join but his call faced major setback after the NUP withdrew following the one month detention of al-Mahdi in May.

Rebel movements and leftist forces refused to join the dialogue from the start.

Bashir said at the rally today that SRF and Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) are nothing but names that do not reflect the names of their leaders because they are "agents and traitors and mercenaries".

"If they believe that the Sudanese people are with them, then the door for political activities is open, and we have an active communist party…we [even] have communist parties, Ba’athist parties and Nasserite parties, and if the [Sudanese] Revolutionary Front or the Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) had followers then they would have came and worked from inside Sudan,” he said.

“Why do you work abroad, and why are they shuttling between the hotels of Paris and Israel?" Bashir asked.

He scoffed at demands to annul Islamic law saying it is next to impossible.

"We tell them you could only lick your elbows,” he said.

The government delegation that negotiates with the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N), said after the adjournment of the recent round last month that the rebel negotiators called for the cancellation of Islamic law in the areas of Blue Nile and South Kordofan and the dismantling of military, security and police forces.

But Bashir affirmed that they are determined to enforce Islamic law and categorically rejected demands to dismantle the Sudanese regular forces and added that the beneficiary of such a proposal are "collaborators, traitors and agents".

"We are on the lookout for them," he said.

"Who is the beneficiary when Sudan disintegrates? Do you like what is happening in South Sudan, Iraq and Syria which is boiling because of agents," Bashir added.

The president called on Sufi sects to stand united against those who want to cancel Islamic law.

For its part, the representative of the Supreme Council of Sufism Mohamed Saleh Mohamed Sharif called on Bashir to make concessions in the national dialogue and ease the suffering of the citizens and fight against corruption and recover stolen funds and fight against inflation.

    Bashir has the gut to mention South Sudan one of the countries as examples of disintegration among others while it is his own making, he has a hand of all this atrocities in the South .

      I can’t indulge myself to unhealthy debate of proving to u what I knew more about our current crisis... It is not Bashir alone, there are many Arab scholars who are involved.

      Sudani Ana,
      I agree with you South Sudanese president is the one destroying S. Sudan no one else. S. Sudanese fought Sudan government for decades accusing Sudan government leaders of being dictators. However, when S. Sudan gain independent, S. Sudanese president become far more dictator than Sudanese’s president. What set S. Sudan apart now from Sudan? S. Sudanese lost lives for nothings.

    Of course CIA and Mossad will do anything to bring the mafia regional bullies down from power in Khartoum. Bashir, thank you for developing Sudan a little bit but 25 years of power is enough. Sudans image is destroyed and it needs to be rebuilt. I don’t support SRF . but I don’t support NCP either. we need a real leader that puts Sudan in front.
