President Bashir of North Sudan, as has been pointed out here at IslamTodayOregon has no intention of giving up the lucrative, but now off-limits Republic of South Sudan. Allah created the whole world for Muslims and Muslims alone, so the mostly Christians and animists/polytheists who make up the new republic are now, and will be for the near future in the cross-hairs of the Islamist North.
The UN is useless in this, and we will see them leave when it gets too tough, followed by a quick invasion and take-over by Bashir. It is not just the expectation that Islam will rule the land, but also the oil of the Sudan which is all located in the new Southern Republic.
The nassacre at Darfur was just the opening act, wait until we see the main attraction, coming soon to North Africa.

UN mission accuses Sudan of shelling and torturing civilians in Nuba war
Khartoum is keeping UN peacekeepers in the dark as it wages a violent campaign against its African border people, say confidential reports to security council
UN mission accuses Sudan of shelling and torturing civilians in Nuba warKhartoum is keeping UN peacekeepers in the dark as it wages a violent campaign against its African border people, say confidential reports to security council
The full horror of the campaign of violence that the government in Khartoum has unleashed against the black African Nuba people of Sudan has been laid bare in two confidential reports by the UN peacekeeping force that the Observer has obtained.
The accounts of "devastating" daily aerial bombardment of civilians, "indiscriminate shelling" of crowded civilian areas, summary executions and deliberate targeting of dark-skinned people are contained in a 19-page report requested by the UN security council. A second report details how "active obstruction by state authorities (in South Kordofan) has completely undermined the ability of the peacekeeping force, UN Mission in Sudan (Unmis), to fulfil the most basic requirements of its mandate" in the Nuba region.
The report says the humanitarian assistance and protection provided by Unmis have become "inconsequential" as it prepares to leave Sudan, at Khartoum's insistence, by 31 July. Unmis officials say privately that they have been "deaf and blind" in South Kordofan ever since war broke out on 5 June and cannot even estimate how many people have been killed and displaced by the fighting – widely perceived as a first step towards President Omar al-Bashir's stated goal of suppressing ethnic and cultural diversity in favour of a rigid Arab-Islamic regime, following South Sudan's decision to separate from the North.
The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs, Valerie Amos, said on Friday that 1.4 million people were affected by what she called "skirmishes" in South Kordofan, which borders the now independent Republic of South Sudan, and by Khartoum's refusal to grant "unhindered access" to them. Causing fury among hard-pressed colleagues on the ground, who have been crying out for much stronger support from the security council, she appeared to cast doubt on their reporting, saying: "We do not know whether there is any truth to the grave allegations of extra-judicial killings, mass graves and other violations in South Kordofan."
The Nuba Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) – formerly allied with the South, but now seeking a northern alliance to overthrow the Bashir government – claims that more than 400,000 people have been displaced and 3,000 killed or disappeared. One Unmis staffer, quoted in one of the documents seen by the Observer, reported seeing the bodies of approximately 150 Nuba lying in pools of blood in just one of the many army barracks in the state capital, Kadugli.
Khartoum and the SPLA have accused each other of starting the fighting, after a ceasefire that began in 2002. Unmis's report for the security council, prepared by its human rights section, notes that the SPLM/A refused to accept the results of disputed state elections in May, but says there is no evidence that it initiated military operations. Rather, it says, the fighting may have been triggered by an ultimatum for Nuba fighters to move to South Sudan by 1 June – an order that was tantamount to "disenfranchising them of their citizenship", given the promise of partition in July.
The report suggests that the "especially egregious" crimes committed by government forces justify referral to the international criminal court. It argues that "the international community cannot afford to remain silent in the face of such deliberate attacks by the government of Sudan against its own people".
But they will, in order to not offend those who have shown themselves more than ready to murder anyone seen as "not Muslim enough".
