The question is how do the US and UK deal with a nation ruled by, and part inhabited by, barbarian Muslims.
After submitting a middle aged Brit woman to imprisonment and threats of violence, Islamic Sudanese pols have “pardoned” her for an act that would not be a crime in any civilized society.
Gillian Gibbons, the British primary school teacher jailed in Sudan for allowing her class to name a teddy bear Mohamed, was released today after being granted a pardon by the country’s President…
The 54-year-old teacher could be on a plane back to Britain within hours after being behind bars for over a week.
The Sudanese pols, no doubt scared of losing the aid cash that buys their Mercedes limos, treated her as a high-ranking political prisoner:
Rather than the overcrowded conditions of Omdurman Women’s Prison, where her defence lawyers expected her to be sent, Ms Gibbons was held at one of the dozens of anonymous whitewashed bungalows surrounded by high walls in Khartoum’s dusty suburbs.
They were once used as “ghost houses”, the sort of places where opponents would disappear, but now they are usually reserved for high-ranking opposition leaders under arrest.
She had a bed, which is not normally provided in Sudan’s cockroach-ridden jails, and as much food as she wanted, in stark contrast to the rest of the prison system where relatives must bring in food and water every day.
Military regimes favoring Islamic-oriented governments have dominated national politics since independence from the UK in 1956.
Sudan was embroiled in two prolonged civil wars during most of the remainder of the 20th century. These conflicts were rooted in northern economic, political, and social domination of largely non-Muslim, non-Arab southern Sudanese.
The first civil war ended in 1972 but broke out again in 1983. The second war and famine-related effects resulted in more than 4 million people displaced and, according to rebel estimates, more than 2 million deaths over a period of two decades…
A separate conflict, which broke out in the western region of Darfur in 2003, has displaced nearly 2 million people and caused an estimated 200,000 to 400,000 deaths.
The UK and US both host lots of Muslim Sudanese – their pols need to spend all that aid money to support their ritzy lifestyles, and the poor people want to escape (while keeping their Sharia Law).
Now the unfortunate teacher has highlighted that “Islamic-oriented government” means systematic brutalization of women. And poor Sudanese Muslims have shown they’re cool with that by demanding her death.
There’s nothing these people can add to our societies, and plenty of harm they can bring.
And we harm by aiding them:
In the last three years, the British Government has given £326 million in aid to war torn Sudan, with a further £114 million earmarked in the next 12 months.
Much of the money has gone into peacekeeping efforts, particularly in the Darfur region – which since 2003 has seen pro-Government forces accused of a programme of ethnic cleansing killing 200,000 non-Arabs and driving a further 2 million people from their homes – and providing assistance to the estimated 3.6 million people affected by the crisis.
You can bet that most of this aid will have been appropriated by said “Islamic-oriented government”.
So here’s the answer to the Sudanese Question:
1. Send Special Forces and weapons to help the Christian Sudanese, and stop sending schoolteachers to train the kids of their Islamic murderers.
2. Encourage visits and immigration to our nations by Christian Sudanese.
3. Ban visits and immigration by Muslim Sudanese, and deport back home any already here that break our laws.
3. Give all of our aid in the form of military support to the Sudanese Christians.
