Sudan implements forced exodus of Christian to the South

Christians have 30 days to leave North Sudan and relocate in South Sudan.  Over 500,000 are affected, and the ensuing humanitarian crisis will move both North and South Sudan closer to another civil war.

This is Islam.

South Sudanese face deadline to leave the north

 (ENInews). Sudanese Christians who have barely a month to leave the north or risk being treated as foreigners are starting to move, but Christian leaders are concerned that the 8 April deadline set by Islamic-majority Sudan is unrealistic. 

"We are very concerned. Moving is not easy ... people have children in school. They have homes ... It is almost impossible," Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Adwok, the Khartoum archdiocese auxiliary told ENInews in a telephone interview on 7 March. 

Sudan in February announced the deadline for the former citizens it had stripped of nationality after South Sudan's January 2011 vote to secede. The ultimatum will affect an estimated 500,000-700,000 people, who are mainly Christians of southern origin that still live in the north. 

Many of them fled north during the long civil war fought between the Government of Sudan and the former rebels, the Sudan People's Liberation Movement. They have lived there for decades together with children who were born there. Few have ties with South Sudan. 

The people are desperate to move, according to reports, following the deadline and increasing tensions between the two nations over oil wealth. The tensions started escalating in January after the north allegedly started taking crude oil from the landlocked south, which it was exporting through a pipeline to Port Sudan on the Red Sea.

The North lost the oil revenue when the split occurred, and ever since President Bashir has been agitating for a way to get that back.  Stealing it is perfectly natural when it is theft from the infidel.
