New Israeli Attack on Sudan

Reports of Israeli violence in Sudan abound. Sudanese newspapers claimed that Israel's Air Force bombed vehicles twice this month, though Sudanese officials denied the report. Foreign media linked Israel to two previous and similar attacks. In May 2012, the Sudanese government claimed that one person was killed when a car exploded in the City of Port Sudan. It also claimed that the event was strikingly similar to a blast last year that killed two people and that it had been blamed on an Israeli missile strike. Before that, in 2009, another similar strike took place in Eastern Sudan.
On December 15, 2011, vehicles in South Sudan—which gained independence from Sudan in July 2011—were bombed, four passengers died in two cars. Three days later, another car was bombed; all its passengers died. The Sudanese newspaper al-Intibaha blamed the Israeli Air Force in both cases, and reported as well on the landing of an Israeli Apache helicopter in a South Sudanese radar station. All these events were dwarfed by an attack on a convoy in Sudan in January 2009; international media reported 119 dead people. In the first week of May 2012, Sudan's al-Intibaha newspaper reported that Israel was transferring logistical and military equipment, including missiles, to South Sudan. This was quoted with no denial by Hebrew media. This air-convoy was performed by daily flights, which landed in one of South Sudan’s airports every night at 3AM. Israeli media reported all the violent events mentioned in these paragraphs, always adding to its articles “foreign media blamed Israel.” The reports were neither denied nor confirmed. This formula of the Hebrew media fits events in which the Mossad is involved.
Israel and Sudan
I often analyze the inner characteristics of the Israeli Administration. Invariably, I reject its self-definition as a democracy. Its systematic violation of human rights denies any possibility of recognizing this regime as a democracy, or even as legitimate. Violence towards one’s own citizens is unacceptable. This article puts the spotlight on the Israeli Administration’s attitude towards others. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was recognized as international law by the UN already in 1994. These rights are independent of geographical and any other considerations. No country can violate a human being while claiming that this is allowed because the victim is not its citizen. These rights are absolute. In this case—as in many others—Israel allows itself to ignore the rights of Sudanese people and bomb them in their own home country based on unproven allegations. Israel knows that courts invariably serve the rich; no Sudanese can approach the International Court of Justice and sue Israel.
Attacking Sudan, Israel follows the Western Blueprint. From Western mainstream media, one gets the eternal impression that regardless of what the reality is, Goliath was the victim, where Goliath represents the West. Reality is different; the blueprint is clear. For 500 years, we have been watching a well consolidated club of enslavers running amok around the world pillaging every attractive corner, enriching themselves by robbing the world’s poorest. They perform these acts of violence claiming that they act in the name of Freedom and Democracy. The actual War on Terror and the future War on Iran are modern variations on the theme. If these wars fail—blocking further expansion of the Western military industry—Sudan will be a handy victim. Israel is already making sure its newest enemy is portrayed as a terrorist by the media. Regardless of this propaganda, on Judgment Day, the entire world will know that the victim’s blood is on Israeli hands, and not for the first time.
