Islamist North Sudan Declares Christian South Sudan An ‘Enemy State’

It was only a matter of time …

Sudan Tribune – “(KHARTOUM) – The Sudanese national assembly on Monday adopted a resolution designating the country’s southern neighbour as an enemy state in the latest sign of escalation between the two sides.

‘We consider the government of South Sudan an enemy and Sudanese state institutions must treat it as such,’ according to the text read by Kamal Obeid who chairs the defense and security committee in parliament.

The legislative body’s speaker Ahmed Ibrahim al-Taher also announced that his country wants the ruling party in South Sudan toppled by any means necessary.

‘We declare that we will confront the [Sudan People Liberation Movement] SPLM until we end its rule of the South, and will work to gather our resources to realize this aim,’ al-Taher said.

‘We are in a battle that does not finish with the recovery of Heglig, but with an end to the danger that comes from South Sudan’ he added.

It remains unclear what implications the decision will carry as the power to declare war lies with the president according to the constitution. Only then can the parliament endorse it according to the 2005 constitution.” Read more.

Flashback: North Sudan: President Al-Bashir Moves Forward with Rewriting the Country’s Constitution to Implement Sharia Law – “Sudanese leader Omer Hassan Al-Bashir is moving forward with rewriting the country’s constitution to implement Shariah law, according to reports from organizations with links inside the Muslim-dominated nation. International Christian Concern’s North Africa specialist Jonathan Racho says that a Shariah-compliant constitution will mean more suffering for Sudan’s remaining Christians. ‘This new law (Shariah compliant constitution) is going to affect a significant number of Christians who live in places like Khartoum (the capital city). There are still a significant number of Christians in Sudan,’ Racho said.” Read more.

    I hope that some of the people that read this forward it to Congress and the White House.

    Please pray for South Sudan.

    We must pray for them, remember them as if we ourselves are being persecuted, ask God to give them strength to endure until the end and to strengthen us as well if persecution comes our way. If we can help them in other ways through aid agencies, we must be willing to do so.
