ln statements last week, al-Fadni said that he would visit Jerusalem with an interfaith youth group including Muslims, Christians and Jews to participate in an open dialogue on the future of the peace process. the forum was attended by prominent Jewish figures from the Israeli Knesset. Also, he announced his participation in other forums and meeting in Israel.

The former PCP official stated that he had informed a number of the party’s leading members and figures of the visit and did not find any objection from them. He further stressed that his decision to travel to Israel reflected his convictions.

Al-Fadni’s trip to Israel took place after a meeting between the head of the Sudanese Sovereign Council and the Israeli prime minister in Uganda in early February 2020.

    These people care more about peace and justice for the Palestinians than they do about oppressed communities in Sudan.

      You are right. They should first care about their people and not those who do not heartedly believe Sydan and Sudanese are Arabs which is true if you ask me.
      Sudan has rich history that dated back before Christianity and Islam. We through that in the bush and claim something different.
