Cf. "The [Israeli] Foreign Ministry attaches great significance to South Sudan and appointed a special coordinator to deal with the subject several months ago. The ministry has been exchanging secret messages with the government of South Sudan for a long time. In October 2010, the president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir, declared that Israel is not an enemy and that he will weigh diplomatic relations with it, including the opening of an Israeli embassy in the capital, Juba" (Ilan Lior and Barak Ravid, "Israel to Recognize South Sudan as Independent State," Haaretz, 8 July 2011)

What would you say to the president Omar al bashir that he couldnt

understand the 4th generation warfare, socalled the south and allowed the

creation of a separate state ? Would he be getting all the blame of separation ?

Muslims got pakistan in sub-con. Christians of sudan got their own country. So, what's the fuss about it? Now let's wait and see which sudan will be governed properly, muslim or christian sudan. Or they start fighting again in their own country.
