Darfur rebels claims defection of Sudanese battalion


November 5, 2009 (LONDON) – A Sudanese army battalion from the military intelligence division at the border patrol has defected and joined rebels ranks, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) said today.

JEM claimed that a platoon headed by Brigadier General Khamis Adam Mohamed Idriss nicknamed ‘Sharon’ joined the movement along with 14 officers and 200 foot soldiers.

The statement said that the battalion was tasked with clearing the areas North of El-Geneina in West Darfur from its inhabitants particularly in Jabal moon region.

Describing the defection as an “outstanding new victory” said that the defectors “made the right patriotic choice” and urged other army units to follow suit “to defend the legitimate rights of their people”>

“This is not their war but that of an isolated regime alone that ended up in the International Criminal Court (ICC) and it is an inevitably ailing regime” the statement reads.

      I have a question:

      Why do muslims and arabs always support killing of innocent and use religion as justification for murder and killings?

      Look what the muslims man did in Fort Hood in Texas in America, he killed 12 innocent soldiers and wounded many more, is this what allah want from us, this evil practise of killing?

      answers please.

    I am very skeptical with this news, I would give these new NIF intelligence a year or two under constant survailance if I were Khalil. The mission of this group could be to assassinate Darfurian Movement’s top leaders including Khalil.

    He called themself "Sharon", but he must prove himself beyond doubt with in a year, or the mission may be a covered one.

    I would have believed them if they were Nuba or Angessaners.

    JEM have the worst propaganda advisers. They dont know how to lie. At least make it believable. What are you going to pay these officers with .. peanuts?

    The Only real fighter who did gave maginalized people their rights, was the true hero and philosopher Dr. John Garang..(may God bless him) so these JEM should talk for its self.
    CPA has made the basis for peace and power/whealth sharing everywhere in Sudan. JEM leaders should think again about their relatives who suffer in camps and try to be realistc and sign peace deal with the goverment..They can always go back to fighting if the goverment cheats..!

    This is true , the news is allover here in Sudan, most SAF fighters are also from Darfur, more and more Sudan army is now surrender to the JEM rebels, it is true that now Darfur people realise the game the Arasb are playing with them, Darfur people do not trust Arabs, they will deceieve you and cheat you, here in Khartoum they always say Darfur are born to be their servants and that a black muslim is not good for Sudan. Darfur people of Africa do not listen to the Arabs, fight for your rights or you will face another genocide.

        Do not loose your motherfucken mind...There is a saying where you have been grown up that: whatever comes from Western Sudan does not make you feel happy...does that imply that you really like them?. You guys do not like Darfurian, coz your grandmas tasted their dicks during Mahmoud wed Ahmed expedition in El-Taishi’s era. No, who is a dumb motherfucker...bitch.

    Let me offend the Sudanese Muslims, for the sake of my African brothers, and sisters, who are now living, or dead, suffering, or happy with the shame of our destruction, and all of those massacred during the spread of Islam in the Mother land, by the evil bloody hands of the Bastard Arabs, the Darfur peoples, are an ancient people rich in culture and a posses vast wealth of heritage, the Fagged Arabs can’t dream about, the Arabs can kill their daughters by burying them alive, but they shall not continue to kill, and rape the African daughter, not anymore. And if war the weak Arabs can’t match with the African might. Islam poisoned the African children, and wherever Muslims are present in numbers, Killings, and rapping will follow, Muslims, and Arabs enslaved the African population long before the trans Atlantic slave trade of the Europeans, and they taught the Europeans about slavery, and where to go hunt slaves (Africans) during their world dominance in Europe, north Africa, and the middle east, we have been betrayed by our leaders, by our own people in the past, but God is awaking the children, and he is raising new leaders (pan Africans) who are ready to take it over, just like in the time of old, the Arab slave master, does not understand what’s happening to the African children globally, it’s the time of the great awakening, and evil shall be, and will be defeated, wither Muslim, Christian, or pagan like the Sudanese Muslim, evil pagan is who they are.

    When will thes foolish black muslims of Darfur realize that they are born to be our servants,they are all under our foots we the originals Arabs and muslims.

      Hey, Mrs. Mohammed, the Arabs are not, and will not be original peoples, but amalgamated bastard peoples their origin is a product of violence, and rape as in the culture of Islam, and the Arabs alike.
      As far as who is going to be servicing who is this modern time is already revealing The wild chicken is about to put in its place, the Arabs, and the Muslim agenda in The Sudan, Africa, and the whole world at large is exposed for what it is Satanic in its nature, and foundation, and will be uprooted from the land of Moses, and we would like to do it by force, the same way the islamized, and Arabized the African children in our homeland. You can run, but you can’t hide.
