Sudan renews criticisms against JEM rebels


May 27, 2012 (KHARTOUM) — Sudan’s presidential assistant Nafie Ali Nafie renewed his accusations against the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) for their alleged participation in the seizure of the disputed oil-area of Heglig on the north-south border by the South Sudan army (SPLA).

Nafie made his remarks against the rebel group on Saturday at the inauguration of General Mohamed Salah Eddin Abdin Street in Khartoum. The general was killed during the fight against JEM fighters when they attacked the Sudanese capital on 10 May 2008.

The influential official claimed Sudanese troops killed hundreds of JEM combatants when the army counter-attacked to dislodge South Sudanese forces from the oil-producing area of Heglig.

"That was blessing for our hearts after what they did when they attempted to attack Omdurman," he stressed.

JEM participated in the Doha peace process to resolve the Darfur crisis, but the group refused to endorse a framework document when a joint African Union-UN mediation proposed to the rebels groups after two years of talks last year.

The African Union and the United Nations say they are discussing a road map to bring the other rebel groups to join the Doha Document for peace in Darfur (DDPD). However, the ongoing tensions between Khartoum and Juba have complicated these efforts.

UN officials say the road map includes external pressures by countries harbouring Darfur rebel groups.

Sudan has signed security agreements with neighbouring countries and formed joint patrols to monitor the borders with three states: Chad, Central African Republic and Libya.

The international follow-up committee holds a meeting in the Qatari capital on Monday to discuss the implementation of the DDPD. The meeting will dedicate a particular focus to the voluntary return of displaced peoples.

      You are right. Befie, as Beshir’s possible boyfriend is the man behind the murders and massacres of true Africans of Sudan. He is the master mind. His days are dawning on him. South sudan will forge unity with all African Sudanese to disallow the continuation of murders and genocide of its people. We will not watch them dye or accept them to be second class citizens in their own homes.

    SHAME on JEM to join KAFIRs against muslims.

    JEW has all the rights not to agree with NCP but not to join the top eneimies of ISLAM.

    Most of JEW older fighters are the ones who defeated SPLA/M in 1991-2001

    I won’t blame SLM as they are spies and tools of JEWS.
    SLM are the ones who started ethnic cleansing and genocides in DARFUR.

      Ya SEE ME
      So you mean Kafir is a term used to refer to black whether they are Muslims or Christians? Don’t get mixed up words. JEM has the legitimate right to fight your devilish Neo Nazis regime that aims at exterminating the black race from Sudan. Sudan is blackman’s land and you the Arab immigrants must learn to peacefully coesist with the landowners.You can’t defeacate on Us (Black).

        Kafirs are very fluent in using bad, impolite, irrespectable, street women language and even behavior of bad boys.
        Kafirs are those who don’t follow the holy bible and holy TORAH. But they comply with the instructions by racist JEWS.

    The beginnings of the Justice and Equality Movement trace to the writers of the Black Book, a manuscript published in 2000 that details the structural inequality in the country; the JEM leader, Khalil Ibrahim, was one of the authors.

    In April 2009, JEM leader Khalil Ibrahim told Aljazeera English in an exclusive interview recorded at his rebel base camp on the Chad-Sudan border that JEM would seek the independence of Darfur if South Sudan became independent.


    ZAGHAWA are not the majority in DARFUR but they are minorities.

      You opened your mouth wider and wider and shouting that ARAB ROOTED DARFURIANS are FAKE ARABS.

      Why you don’t come and send all of us to hell and/or prisons?

      WE will not ask the GOS for help but you will request the GOS and UN to stop us.
