Sudan’s indicted war criminal President Omar Bashir has called on the International community to support his false peace process in Sudan. All while his ‘Peace Forces’ militias continue to massacre the people of Darfur at the start of the New Year 2017. These massacres have occurred in Nertiti and Geneina in Western and Central Darfur regions. Geneina is 25 kilometers from the border of the Eastern Chad town of Adree. Nertiti is approximately 248 kilometers Southeast of Geneina.
President Bashir and his Arab allies’ Islamic Peace Forces have not stopped committing genocide, war crimes and crimes against the indigenous people of Darfur. With the objective of furthering the Islamic extremist ideology, they have extended killing to the innocent population of the adjacent Central African Republic and Chad. This is all part of his plan to establish through ethnic cleansing of African tribes a Caliphate in the Sahel region of Central Africa. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of foreign Islamist terrorists and mujaheddin from across Africa and Syria are gathering and being trained in Sudan for conduct of this Jihad.
With the objective of distancing the government’s involvement and drawing the international community’s attention away from the crimes its militias committing in Nertiti and Geneina; the Sudan’s Minister admitted to the members of parliament on January 4, 2017 that there were over 3,000 armed foreign fighters present in Jebel Amir, Darfur. He also said there were several other foreign groups working in mining areas. However, his government was not able to determine their identities. This was not the first time the Sudan government revealed that there were foreign fighters in Darfur. The fact is that these fighters were brought by the regime and controlled by its security agents in order to constitute a Jihadist army.
The Bashir regime, backed with Saudi and Emirate funding, is unleashing ethnic cleansing of African tribes in Darfur, Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile regions to exploit the natural resources both offshore in the Red seabed and on shore in Darfur and the Nuba Mountains.

New Year’s Jihad in Darfur in Nertiti and Geneina
New Year’s 2017 there was dramatic evidence of Bashir’s Jihad strategy, a massacre in the Central Darfur town of Nertiti by marauding Sudan Armed forces and ‘Peace Forces’ mercenaries killing 11, injuring 60 innocent civilians. This massacre demonstrated Bashir’s callous intent when he declared a “cease fire” with resistance forces.

On January 5, 2017 ‘Peace Forces’ militias attacked people in Hay al Jebel in Geneina and killed 7 people and wounded 16 others. They burned several homes belonging to Massalit tribe. The incident erupted when a Massalit man brought two goats to the market to sell. Some ‘Peace Forces’ militiamen pretended the goats belonged to them and as usual they seized them. The Massalit man protested and fighting started between them and two ‘Peace Forces’ militiamen died. Then other ‘Peace Forces’ militiamen stormed the market with armed Toyota trucks and began shooting. Then the fighting continued until it reached Hay al Jebel where the ‘Peace Forces’ militias burned down homes.
The massacre occurred following the end of the visit of Sudan’s 2nd Vice President Hassabo Mohamed Abderhaman who spent two weeks in Geneina. Since January of last year he frequently moved between Southern, Central and a Western Darfur regions mobilizing Arabs recruits from Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR) for the Sudan ‘Peace Forces’.
The Vice President’s last visit to Geneina was to settle disputes between these tribal groups that the regime is bringing from foreign countries and unite them under Guresh. They want all Arab tribes to unite under Guresh (Prophet Mohamed’s tribe). When they go to obtain a Civil Administration Number they do not write their original tribe. They write only Guresh.

Some Arabs of Darfur disagree with the government fearing for their future executing the regime’s plan to use them against other tribes in Darfur. Others disputes arise because the government gave senior positions in the ‘Peace Forces’ to these new arrivals. The government of the Sudan continues to organize ‘Peace Forces’ militia into different forms but their mission is to create the Caliphate.
Each Arab sheik must bring 200 men to be recruited into the ‘Peace Forces’. Currently each sheik is required to bring 50 men. The remaining 150 must be recruited from both adults and children between the ages of 8 and 12 years of age. Each sheik is also authorized 10 military officer ranks. What is strange is that two of these officer ranks should be a full Colonel and the other a Lieutenant Colonel will be chosen by the government. The rest from Major down to 2nd Lieutenant will be selected by lottery.

The rest of 190 people will participate in a lottery game to determine who will pick the lucky number to be among the remaining eight officers. The rest will be enlisted personnel. If an eight year old kid pulled a Major’s rank he will be confirmed as a Major in the Sudanese army and enjoy full status but will not take command responsibility until he reaches a certain age. Normally, ‘Peace Forces’ children as young as 8 years can carry weapons. All these people will be paid salaries. Military ranks and salaries are made to encourage or compensate them on the work they are doing for the Caliphate. Recruiting an 8 to 12 year old child indicates that the Arab cabal is determined to establish a Caliphate in the Sahel Region of Africa. Darfur will be used as a base to execute this strategy.
Ethnic Cleansing in Central African Republic
Ethnic cleansing has been going on in Bambari, Bria, and their surroundings in the Central African Republic (CAR). The fighting erupted between SELEKA rebel groups that seized power in March 2013. SELEKA has split into several groups. Following the election of the new President of CAR, the government in Bangui tried to integrate SELEKA rebel forces into the CAR army but some of these factions refused. A faction lead by the Ali Dressa majority from the Fullani tribe welcomed the government offer.
The rest of SELEKA factions are lead by tribes of Gula, Runga, and Arabs who rejected the offer. They are united against the Fullani faction. Fighting erupted between these groups and escalated into tribal conflicts. SELEKA lead by an Arab named Hakim received reinforcements of men and weapons from ‘Peace Forces’ militias in Darfur and Arabs in Chad. We heard horrible stories of Fullani women carrying babies in their hands begging for their lives who were killed by machetes not for any reason but because they are Fullani. For nearly two months now, fighting has been going on between SELEKA factions in the CAR. Ethnic cleansing is believed to have been committed on all sides.
The strategy of creating the Caliphate by the Bashir regime in Khartoum is moving faster than we had imagined. The ‘Peace Forces’ now control nearly half of CAR territory. They hold territory from Bambari in the center all the way to Sam bordering South Sudan and the areas bordering Southern Chad. SEE: Map of SELEKA Rebel Control in CAR below. The only hope is to separate Gulas and Rungas and unite them with Fullani to drive ‘Peace Forces’ away from the CAR.
Chadian Rebel in Sudan with Darfur victim.
The Prime Minister of Chad announced closing of its borders with Libya. Niger and French forces are also moving close to the borders of Libya. Rumors are that some Chadian rebels want to move from Libya to attack Chad. Others say some terrorist groups are dislodged by Libyan forces. Chadians and Nigerians want to prevent their territories from terrorist infiltration.
The international community, especially those countries that are embracing Bashir’s regime, should take notice that the National Congress Party/Muslim Brotherhood regime in Khartoum poses a threat to international peace and security. Bashir’s strategy of raising a veritable Jihadist army to establish a Caliphate in the African Sahel region is continuing. If his strategy and his allies are not stopped it could destabilize the whole sub-region.
