Are the constant bombing raids in Sudan's Nuba Mountain region a sign that the government is preparing for a genocide like assault on the people living in the Nuba Mountains? Many Christians live in the Nuba Mountains and have been victim to the air raids perpetrated by the government throughout November. Will the international community take notice before it is too late?
12/1/2012 Sudan (CanadaFreePress) - The threat of genocide looms in Sudan as Christian and non-Arab communities in three regions have been targeted by President General Omar al-Bashir, a notorious leader well known for the systematic slaughter of those who oppose Islamisation.
When the mainly Christian south seceded from the predominantly Islamic north in 2011, the government of Sudan began to persecute “southerners” (those who are politically and culturally aligned with the south) living in the north, stripping them of their citizenship and denying them rights.
The attempts by the Khartoum government to drive out the ‘infidels’ or ‘blacks’ (as it refers to them) from the oil-rich areas of Abyei and South Kordofan, in which tens of thousands were killed in 2011, appear to be continuing. Recent aerial bombardments have completely demolished homes and farms (including crops) in these predominantly Christian areas. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced, acute malnutrition and famine have become widespread, and access to humanitarian aid has been denied.
