Sudan is the microcosm of Black Africas unacknowledged Arab problem, a problem of racism, colonialism, enslavement and an Arab agenda of cultural, political and territorial expansion at the expense of Black Africa. It would take a fat book to adequately explain these matters; however, the brief answers to the 11 questions below attempt to throw preliminary light on the situation of the Afro-Sudanese.
Q1: What is the basic problem in Sudan?
In Sudan, Black Africans (The Afro-Sudanese in South Sudan, Darfur, Nubia, etc) are fighting against an Arab settler minority regime, ruling from Khartoum. They are fighting against a racist, Arab supremacist rule that is worse, much worse, than Apartheid. The Sudan situation has many of the features of Apartheid and, to make things worse, the raiding of black African villages by Arabs who sell black captives into slavery in Northern Sudan and other parts of the Arab world, is still going on there today in the 21st century. Slave raiding was not even part of the loathsome evils of Apartheid.
The South Sudanese, after a 50years war of liberation (1955-2005)the longest war in Africa-- finally got Khartoum to sign the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, CPA, in 2005. The CPA has the backing of the International Community. It grants the South Sudanese limited autonomy through the Government of South Sudan, and provides for a Self-Determination referendum in 2011. The referendum will give the people of South Sudan the chance to decide whether South Sudan will remain within Sudan or secede and become independent.
In a replay of how Khartoum unilaterally abrogated the 1972 Addis Ababa peace accord that ended the Anya-Anya phase of the Afro-Arab race war in Sudan, [an accord that, like the CPA, also granted regional autonomy to South Sudan], Khartoum is determined to kill the CPA, and is maneuvering to resume war on South Sudan and prevent the referendum.

Video: A 'lost boy' of Sudan returns to rebuild his homeland
January 7, 2011
On Sunday, the people of Southern Sudan will begin voting on whether to remain part of a unified Sudan or become an independent state. Sudan, Africas largest nation, is an oil-rich <font color=red>country run by Islamist Arabs</font>. What happens there matters to all of us for strategic and humanitarian reasons. Heres what you need to know:
For generations, southern Sudan has been dominated by the Islamist-run government in Khartoum, which has sought to impose Sharia law on the souths Christians and animists.
Religion is one of the main causes of two bloody civil wars that have killed two million southern Sudanese. Another point of contention: control of Sudans oil reserves that lie mostly in the south and along the border with the north. If, as expected, the south votes to secede, many fear another wave of violence, despite assurances from Sudans president, Omar al Bashir, that he will accept the results of the election: If the south secedes, we will welcome it.
But can Bashir be trusted? He has been indicted as a war criminal for his brutal military campaign against rebels and civilians in Darfur. That fighting, which began in 2003, has left 300,000 dead. Need to Know sent producer George Lerner to southern Sudan to report on one former refugees efforts to help rebuild his homeland in anticipation of a vote for independence.

Though there is reason to be optimistic, there are problems aplenty awaiting a South Sudan. First and foremost it is politically split along tribal lines. A Dinka is a Dinka, Nuer a Nuer, Murle a Murle, etc., and it will take a fantastic amount of effort to infuse a sense of nationhood in a tribal society. And because the nation will be split along tribal lines, econonic development will require a deft touch by outsiders who will have to play important roles in its negotiation. Flashpoints will continue to exist as Arab cattle nomads will seek to move their herds along traditional paths into the Bahr al Ghazal, which will be under the control of Dinka. Then there is the problem of the Nuba Mountains people in Southern Kordofan, and they want no part of incorporation in the North. There is the oil question..., the curreny question, etc. It makes the head hurt to think of the problems that will have to be overcome. But let us have hope. After decades of civil war, it is time for a lasting peace.
and a zurka is a zurka, racism by the arab masters. But at least they'll have their own country - away from enduring humiliating ruling northern masters.
