Jihad on the Children

Pages: 1 2

Kauda is a town in central Sudan’s Nuba Mountains roughly 50 miles northeast of the state capital, Kadugli. Along with the rest of the Nuba Mountains/Southern Kordofan region, Kauda is under attack by the National Congress Party (NCP) Islamist government of Sudan that seeks to eradicate the black, African Nuba ethnic groups. Every day Kauda’s rich hills and fertile valleys suffer new scars as bombs drop from the sky, terrorizing and killing men, women, and children.

Khartoum’s extermination campaign began June 5, 2011, after its candidate for Nuba Mountains governor, ICC-indicted war criminal Ahmed Haroun, stole the election from the popular Commander Abdelaziz Adam Alhilu. Haroun is the architect of the genocide in Darfur. Alhilu is a hero of Sudan’s civil war and current head of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North (SPLA-North), the force defending the Nuba from Khartoum’s troops. When the people protested the rigging of the election, Sudan President Omar al Bashir warned that if the Nuba did not accept Haroun, his soldiers would “chase them up into the mountains” where they would starve. He also told Sudan’s armed forces and Islamic militias to “just sweep away the rubbish” in the Nuba Mountains.

On June 14 the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) bombed the airstrip at Kauda, and since then they have carried out dozens more air strikes there and in surrounding villages and towns. Kauda County Police Chief, Mohammed Ibrahim, told Sudan Radio Service on July 1 that an SAF airplane had bombed the Kauda Hospital the day before, killing civilians. A pregnant woman who had just gone into labor was decapitated in the bombing.

Then on August 22, just before declaring a ceasefire that was immediately and pathetically lauded by the U.S. State Department, Khartoum targeted again civilians in Kauda. According to sources on the ground, a single Antonov plane dropped four bombs “in and around” Al Masha Secondary School. Thankfully, no one was killed. Only two people were seriously injured. But the last time Khartoum bombed a Kauda school, the tragedy was overwhelming.

Kauda still bears the scars of a wound it received at nine a.m. February 8, 2000. As children at Holy Cross Primary School settled into their studies in “classrooms” under two large shade trees, the Sudanese government turned its war on the little Catholic bush school and bombed the school. Twenty students and one teacher died. Dozens were severely injured, many requiring amputation. The Sudanese air force dropped five “barrel” bombs, studded with nails, on what the low-flying aircraft obviously knew was a civilian target.

In his beautiful but painful book, War and Faith in Sudan, journalist Gabriel Meyer recounts the events of the horrific morning:

The first two bombs failed to hit their target, landing in a hollow a quarter mile from the school and at its perimeter. The third bomb, however, landed in the schoolyard between the two trees, leaving a blackened crater in its wake. Shrapnel moving at speeds of up to two hundred miles an hour sliced through the air.

The students who flattened themselves on the ground, as they had been trained to do, had a chance. Those who tried to run away from the blasts did not.

Seeing where the third bomb had struck, and with terrorized children breaking into a run all around her, teacher Roda Ismail tried to force them to lie down, and shifted her students to the back side of the southern tree to shield them from the shrapnel whining across the yard.

    Meanwhile, the West acts like the wholesale slaughter of these Sudanese black children weren't happeing. The UN's actions (or lack thereof) are also irrefutable proof of how its priorities are set by the OIC, its puppet-master, since the lives of those nine terrorist supporters aboard the Mavi Marmara have been given the kind of attention that thousands of lives of infidel black children could never, ever obtain from that body.

    Why aren’t Obama/Sarkozy NATO bombers and the UN’s R2P “protecting civilians” from the Omar el-Bashir led genocidal racist junta intent on exterminating Sudan’s indigenous Black Africans.
    Is it only when oil is at stake in Libya?

  • Fred Dawes

    Its all about mass murder.

  • LindaRivera

    “The United States calls on both sides to allow unfettered humanitarian access to affected populations in Southern Kordofan.”

    Once again, American leaders commit the grave sin of moral equivalency condemning INNOCENT victims alongside the barbaric monsters who kill children. It is unforgivable.

    The U.S. and other nations also apply moral equivalency to jihad victim, little Israel.

      not really, humaeterian relief is a waste of time and resources as the problem still exists. we can send foold, clothes and it will not do any good, because we refuse to eliminate islam. true humaniterian action requires us to take over and conquest. to go in, bomb the hell out of them and make them ours, because anything less will do no good

    The ruthless indifference to Black suffering by America, France, NATO and the nations is indescribably evil. Remember their callous indifference when the hypocrites hold the Durban 3 meeting on racism at the UN in a few days.

    Racism and genocide of Blacks by the rebels in Libya is ignored:

    The Obama-supported rebels left in charge are now conducting a “large
    scale cleaning in the areas under their control with the extermination
    of all blacks in the capital”, according to The Independent.

    Ruthless genocide of blacks in Libya by the US/NATO backed Al-Qaeda linked rebels has been going on for months. US/NATO who waged war for months for the Al-Qaeda linked rebels-who murder our troops in Iraq-are RESPONSIBLE for stopping the genocide.

    US/NATO are also responsible for
    rescuing the many blacks kidnapped by the rebels, including the
    kidnapped black children who have been horrendously abused by the
    black-hater Muslim rebels.

    STOP THE GENOCIDE!

    For the nations and the leftist media to focus on Muslim atrocities against black victims would compromise their greater objective which is to depict Israel as the most evil entity in the world and deserving of elimination. Complicit in this monstrous evil is the American Jewish establishment that wants to avoid criticism of the Muslim regime and avoid criticism of Obama for not responding. In addition there is the radical Jewish left that also has an agenda to demonize Israel and whitewash Muslim regimes that commit mass murder. Also one must ask where is the leadership of American blacks and the Congressional black Caucus?

    The half black creature in the White House is ALL muslem. This has everything to do with hate, islamic hate and control.

  • R. TOOL Thomas

    I can't believe another Rwanda is happening in the old Sudan. Muslims will stop at nothing, even it means killing of children in these areas. Were is the world community?.

  • jasonz

    makes ya wonder where sharpton, jackson , lee and the rest of the racebaiters are. oh yes i took it there. its time re recognise the REAL problem and thats ISLAM. America has this nasty habit of defeating an enemy and not reaping any reward from it. this is where we made our mistake. we spend countless money and loose our brave soldiers only to defend a country or people that turn on us and want us dead. its time America forces the world to be like us. go in, bomb them and take over.

    What Nuba people want from the International Community is not Food. We just need the International Community to support and apply a flight-free zone over the Nuba Mountains and the Blue Nile State to protect civillians. The SPLA Nuba Mountains faction know very well how to protect thier community and defeat the racist Sudanese government troops on the ground. Just a flight-free zone no more.

      Gose is so right. The Nuba and the SPLA-North have proved over and over what a great fighting force they are — for true freedom and Jeffersonian democracy. They are not a bunch of whiners like the "Arab Spring" Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood tricksters, getting the West to fight their battles for them, and making things worse than they were before. The Nuba just need for us not to screw them by supporting the Arab Islamist regime instead of them. Demand a flight-free zone, and I'd say, ask Congress to throw in a few anti-aircraft weapons as the SPLA was promised.
