“America Believes That It Owns the Oil Discovered in Sudan”
Dr. Hassan Al-‘Audha, Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood: […] “What shall we do if these accursed forces come to our country? Shall we give in to them, wave olive branches, and release doves for them, or should we take a stand? Our position is clear – America understands nothing but the power of the weapon. It understands nothing but the power that causes the greatest number of casualties to it. It understands nothing but the fighting against its economy. That is why we are confident that, with Allah’s help, if these forces reach this country, we have young men, religious scholars, sheikhs, intellectuals, and people who are zealous for this country. Any person who is zealous for this country will sacrifice himself for the sake of the homeland. I don’t mean “homeland” in the sense of the soil. We are not zealous for this land because of the rivers that flow in it. We are zealous for it because it is the land of Islam.”[…]
“These [foreign] forces will back up the Hebrew forces, which will take over the Nile in order to expand their country. The Torah says: ‘Wherever you park your horse caravans, that will be your land.’ This means power. For Israel, land is not a geographical or political entity – it is power.” […]
“The Zionist Satan is Behind All This,Whether He Speaks English, Norwegian, Or Italian”
Sudanese Islamic leader: “The Nifasha agreements and all these disasters, with their clear deceptions and great and deviant evils – the Zionist Satan is behind all this, whether he speaks English, Norwegian, or Italian.”
“According to the tenets of their belief, in the third millennium they must build Solomon’s Temple, and establish the Greater Israel, in order to rule the world for a thousand happy years. We have now entered the seventh year of that third millennium. Therefore, they are pressed for time. That’s why they’ve begun to operate out in the open. They do not conceal it anymore. They used to conceal their activity in Khartoum and the Nile. Now they are out in the open and they talk clearly. They write it clearly in the newspapers, without concealing it or beating about the bush. May Allah, the angels, and all human beings curse them.”
Another Sudanese Islamic leader: […] “Sudan has mountains and plains. It is the most beautiful place in which our sheikh, bin Laden, can operate.”
“Let’s use [bin Laden] to scare them. By Allah, they are terrified of him. Aren’t they terrified of him? He is destroying them. He was here once – let’s bring him again. He will come.”
“Those scumbags want to play with us? They want to come to the children of Darfur? The children of Darfur will eat them alive. By Allah, there are some ferocious tribes there. They call them Janjaweed, and they want to attack them. There is a tribe called ‘Al-Masiriya.’ Are they men or not? By Allah, when we ride horses and make these battle cries… By Allah, the infidels die of fear. They die of fear.”
“I don’t want to go on, brothers. We have done talking. Let them do the talking – the Americans, the British, and NATO, who covet the Sudanese oil, and minerals of Darfur and Moya, and who look for uranium, and want to… By Allah, we don’t care about any of this. All we want is to die for the sake of Allah. Just a bullet here – and you are gone. Let them come – by Allah, we will teach them a lesson.”
