Also, he announced his participation in other forums and meeting in Israel.

    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.
