Al Bashir…One More Hero for a Frustrated Nation
Al Bashir…One More Hero for a Frustrated Nation
Although this is the least unfortunate scenario, but it is impossible. Al Bashir did not take off his military uniform for his mentor sheikh Hassan Al-Turabi, and threw him behind bars to keep "unity" and "the Islamic cultural project". He fought on the southern, eastern and western fronts. The result will be one more wound in the wound-riddled body of Sudan .

After taking off his military uniform, saying goodbye to his wife, asking his mother to bless his deeds, by saying to him " My you be cleared God willing", he takes a taxi- without any presidential convoy- towards the US embassy in Khartoum . Alberto Fernandez is taken aback by the one knocking at the door of the embassy. Is he president Lieutenant General Omar Hassan Albashir? he welcomes Al Bashir who unexpectedly says " I understand it and you understand it too. If I had been an agent working for you, the ICC couldn"t have issued such an arrest warrant. I do not want to apply for a job in CIA after it is too late. I want to spare my country any misfortunes they may result from my haunting me. Instead of the UN game that you played in Iraq and Afghanistan , I want to cut it short and surrender myself to you directly. Who knows, your Supreme Court may justly deal with me better than the International Criminal Court".
 
Although this is the least unfortunate scenario, but it is impossible. Al Bashir did not take off his military uniform for his mentor sheikh Hassan Al-Turabi, and threw him behind bars to keep "unity" and "the Islamic cultural project". He fought on the southern, eastern and western fronts. The result will be one more wound in the wound-riddled body of Sudan .
 
Sudan will not defeat America or its allies, and they will not topple Al Bashir"s regime. Al Bashir will become- like Saddam Hussein and Mullah Omar- a hunted resistant leader. Meanwhile, the tragedy of Darfur in particular and Sudan in general will be aggravated.
 
Al Bashir will gain unprecedented Arab and Islamic sympathy and support on the level of leaders and peoples. The leaders fear to face his fate, as every one of them has his own challenges. As for peoples, they are trenched against the United States while their spiritual tongue wonders:" Why Al Bashir in particular and not Perez, Bush or Blair? For what they committed in Palestine , Iraq and Afghanistan after 2002. The peoples will be delighted over the fiery statements to be issued by Al Bashir in huge rallies. Dr. Nafeh Ali Nafeh, the formere Sudanese spymaster said:" We do not protect Sudanese sovereignty with dialogue, begging or gentleness, we will rather protect it with the rifle".
 
What Sudan has reached is heartbreaking. It should receive oil windfalls to be the Arab food basket, not to face siege, destruction or fragmentation. The US-led international community is blamed for what Sudan faces. Al Bashir- in power for two decades- is also held responsible. He has failed in preserving the unity of the Islamic movement that helped him reach office and he failed also in preserving the unity of country and above all he committed mistakes in Darfur .
 
We should never be dragged by anti-US sentiments and deny what Darfur residents faced. We should remember that all Darfur citizens are Muslims, and that the main rebel faction that arrived in Umm Durman is an extension of Al Turabi-led Islamic movement. They are ready to fight the United States for a hundred years. With its double standard policy, the International Criminal Court couldn"t have done this but for the huge cracks in the body of the regime.
 
Though it may be too late, the crisis may be a chance for tough reconsideration, not for a ruler whose offence we sympathize with as Arabs and Muslims. But for peoples soaked with racism. Before we deny the charges of raping African women, can we ask ourselves who can accept to marry his son or daughter to a male or female African?. Wasn"t the Islamic project the one that dazzled Malcolm X- the African American civil rights leader who wrote decades ago how ate from the same dish with a white man?. Havn"t the follies of the salvation regime offended " the Islamic cultural project " for which he turned against an elected government?.
