1980’s Arab Supremacists Slave Traders

Nomidic Arab tribes called the Janjaweed (in Sudanese province of Darfur since 12th century from Arabian Peninsula) form an alliance with a group of powerful Arab North Sudanese merchants called the Jellaba. The Jellaba runs an extensive slavery ring of non-Arab Africans and exploits the Sudanese soil for its raw materials.

The Arab Janjaweed and Jellaba consider themselves racially and ethnically superior to the Africans of Sudan, justifying their involvement in the slave-trade of black Africans.

Sudan Famine 1985-2003

Terrible drought hits Sudan resulting in severe famine. Janjaweed Arab militias (15% of Darfur population) relentlessly attack farms and villages of Sudanese Africans, depriving them of water and provisions. Pillaging, raping and killing are common. Africans are treated as second-class citizens.

Sudan 1989-2003: Muslim Brotherhood In Power

Muslim Brotherhood led by Al Bashir take over government by force. He works closely with Osama Bin Laden. Persecution of non-Arab Sudanese by Janjaweed militia worsens under Al Bashir, and increasingly takes on the tone of racially motivated ethnic cleansing.

1989 Osama in Sudan

Osama Bin Laden, founder of Al Qaeda, leaves Afghanistan for Saudi Arabia. Then continues on to Khartoum, Sudan. He works with Al Zahawiri and Al-Bashir of Muslim Brotherhood.

1989 Two Million Christians murdered (Muslim Brotherhood) Millions More Are Starved by Jihad Forces

Muslim Brotherhood stages pro-Islamic coup in Sudan under ideological leadership of Hassan al-Turabi. Democracy ended. Thirteen devastating years of famine and civil war follow. Sudanese Jihad militia (the Janjaweed) prevents abundant food supplies from reaching starving Sudanese population. Millions of Sudanese die from disease and malnutrition.

Hassan al-Bashir of Muslim Brotherhood leads the devastation.

Two million (2,000,000) Christian Sudanese murdered by Hassan al-Bashir’s Wahhabi Jihad (Holy War) since 1989.

Jihad is heavily sponsored by Saudi Oil.

1996 Al Qaeda From Sudan to Afghanistan to the World

Bin Laden leaves Sudan under US pressure on Sudanese government. He returns to Pakistan and is transferred back to Afghanistan under the direct supervision of General Pervez Musharraf, then high ranking military figure. Osama Bin Laden gathers all the remaining Mujahedeen (‘Holy Islamic Warriors’) from the Afghan War. He finds refuge with the oppressive Taliban regime and rekindles connections with jihad mercenaries from Chechnya, Dagestan, Xinjiang of China, the Southern Philipines, North Africa and the Middle East. International Jihad takes shape.


Lieutenant General Omar Hassan Ahmad Al-Bashir is the President of Sudan and the head of the National Congress Party. He came to power in 1989 when he, as a brigadier in the Sudanese army, led a group of officers in a bloodless military coup that ousted the government of Prime Minister Sadiq al-Mahdi.

In October 2005, al-Bashir's government negotiated an end to the Second Sudanese Civil War, one of the longest-running and deadliest wars of the 20th century, by granting limited autonomy to Southern Sudan dominated by the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA). Since then, however, there has been a violent conflict in Darfur that has resulted in death tolls between 200,000 and 400,000 [More like 2 million and still counting! (emphasis mine)]. During his presidency, there have been several violent struggles between the Janjaweed militia and rebel groups such as the Sudanese Liberation Army (SLA) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) in the form of guerrilla warfare in the Darfur region. The civil war has displaced over 2.5 million people out of a total population of 6.2 million in Darfur and has created a crisis in the diplomatic relations between Sudan and Chad.

Al-Bashir is a controversial figure both in Sudan and worldwide. In July 2008, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno Ocampo, accused al-Bashir of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur. The court issued an arrest warrant for al-Bashir on 4 March 2009 on counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, but ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute him for genocide. However, on 12 July 2010, after a lengthy appeal by the prosecution, the Court held that there was indeed sufficient evidence for charges of genocide to be brought and issued a second warrant containing three separate counts. The new warrant, as with the first, will be delivered to the Sudanese government, which is unlikely to execute it.Al-Bashir was the first sitting head of state indicted by the ICC. The court's decision is opposed by the African Union, League of Arab States, Non-Aligned Movement, and the governments of Russia and China. A leak from WikiLeaks allegedly reveals that the Sudanese president had embezzled state funds amounting to US$ 9 billion, to which the Lloyd's Bank of England later rejected as "Lloyds insisted it was not aware of any link with Bashir."

On Monday evening, Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) nominated President Omar al-Bashir as one of its potential candidates in the April 2015 presidential election. While the NCP also named four other candidates, there is no doubt that Bashir will emerge as the party’s top representative. Meaning there is little chance that Sudan’s political landscape will see the reforms opposition figures have been clamoring for.

Bashir took power in the wake of a 1989 military coup – and has served as president ever since. His rule has been marked by widespread repression and intolerance. In our Blouin Beat primer on longstanding dictatorships, we noted that this totalitarian ruler introduced strict Islamic law to parts of Sudan, offered terrorists like Carlos the Jackal and Osama bin Laden (brief) political sanctuary and, in 2003, led a campaign of genocide in the Darfur region that killed some 300,000 Sudanese and displaced millions. The result: Bashir is one of the few sitting heads of state wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of war crimes and genocide.

While there have been some indications that Bashir’s grip on power is not as ironclad as it once was – e.g., protests over fuel subsidies in late 2013, and recent reports of the president’s ill health that cast doubt on his ability to rule — Monday’s announcement reveals that the Sudanese leader is eager to extend his tenure, pledges to the contrary notwithstanding. In recent weeks, the president’s administration has made much of its purported efforts to broaden national dialogue, notably the recent lifting of a ban on an opposition newspaper, and the ruling party’s democratic nomination process.

Sudan’s dubious, and admittedly weak, opposition movement is gearing up nonetheless, with two parties (the National Uma Party and the National Consensus Forces) joining forces in the hopes of brokering change in Sudan’s political system. Following a two-day meeting this weekend, the coalition’s leaders stated that they will reach their objective through “productive dialogue or a peaceful popular uprising.” If past is prologue, however, both options are improbable. Bashir is set to prolong his rule, which is nearing an impressive 10,000 days in power.
