Sudanese Islamists Threaten U.S.: Don't Send Forces to Darfur; Sudan is the Most Beautiful Place in Which Our Sheikh, Bin Laden, Can Operate

from MEMRI:

The following are excerpts from Islamic leaders' conference in Sudan, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on July 3, 2007. To view this clip, visit http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1549.htm.

"America Believes That It Owns the Oil Discovered in Sudan"

Dr. Hassan Al-'Audha, Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood: "America believes that it is the master of the world, and that all other people are its slaves, who are subordinate to it and must obey it. America believes that it owns the oil discovered in Sudan. These are not my words. [Former U.S. president] Carter declared some two years ago: 'We wanted the oil of Sudan to be used for the pleasure of the American people after 2005.'"

"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."[...]

"America and Its Helpers Have Not Left Any Country Without First Destroying It"

"America and its helpers have not left any country without first destroying it. This is a well-known thing. Even in the days of the so-called "liberation of Kuwait - we are now realizing its negative effect on the environment of the Gulf, which has left medicine and doctors helpless. Many diseases have spread - cancer and so on - because of the waste brought in containers and buried in the Gulf desert. Today, there are entire hospitals for the treatment of cancer only. We will not be any better off than them, unless we learn the lesson from what happened to them."

[...]

"This people has a glorious history. Gordon Pasha, who humiliated the Chinese - the Sudanese here cut off his head. The Sudanese wiped out much of the British arrogance, to the point that the British wrote that the Sudanese people is like a sleeping dog that should not be awakened. They provoke us and awaken us, but Allah willing, we will show them."

[...]

Muhammad Ahmad Hajj Ahmad, Commander of the Popular Defense Forces: "Whoever talks about genocide and about [ethnic] cleansing and all that should tell us what is going on in Palestine, in Iraq, and in Afghanistan. Throughout the history of this world, we have heard about women being raped by men. But throughout history, never have we heard about men being raped by women, except at Abu Ghureib prison."[...]

"Though We Are Opposed To the Killing of Any Human Being in Darfur - When They [Americans and British] are the Ones Talking About This, We Will Not Accept It"

"Even though we are opposed to the killing of any human being in Darfur, when they are the ones talking about this, we will not accept it under any circumstance. If it is the Americans and the British who adopt this case - we will never accept it."

[...]

"What is needed is an actual breakthrough in the Darfur negotiations. We need an actual breakthrough in the negotiations. By Allah, it would be more honorable for us all to accept the terms of the armed movements than to allow foreign forces to enter our country. They want a united province - let's give them a united province. If they vote for a united province - we can give them that. They want six vice-presidents? Let them have it. We should negotiate with them until there is a breakthrough, and we agree that no foreign forces will enter Sudan."

[...]

Abd Al-Jalil Muhammad, international expert: "Why Darfur? Darfur is situated on top of the largest fresh-water reservoir in Africa and the world. The next war will be a war over water, and Israel cannot engage in war with the countries in which the Nile originates or flows. To compensate for this, Israel wants to control Darfur, thus gaining control of this fresh water."

[...]

"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."z[...]

"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: "The resistance now has methods and tactics. It has defeated America everywhere. What happened in Iraq is the best example. They should know, in case any future fighting takes place, that men from Sudan went to fight in Afghanistan. There was a Sudanese camp in Afghanistan. If they don't know that - they should know. The Afghans knew about it, and would say: "The Sudanese are number one." They knew that the Sudanese are ferocious fighters - number one! People went to fight in Iraq. The [Americans] know who they are. If they come here, the people won't have to travel away. If the enemy comes here, it should know what will happen to it. They should be deceived by the hypocrites. Khartoum is in the heart of a vast country, one million square miles in size. The Red Sea has a coastline 1,000 km long, which the resistance can take advantage of. Every day, 10.5 million barrels of oil must reach America. If the resistance were to seal off the Red Sea, using primitive methods, it could fill it with sea mines - here and elsewhere... They are very cheap, and the mujahideen produce them themselves... America will not get 20.5 million barrels. If the Bab Al-Mandab straits are closed, America will be over and done with. They cannot exist without their life artery, which is oil. The battle will not be just in Darfur, like the president of Sudan said. It will be throughout Sudan. 15% of the American oil comes from West Africa. The mujahideen are deployed throughout Africa. They should take it into consideration. They will meet their death and destruction in Sudan. They will not come to an end in Iraq. Their annihilation will be in Sudan.

"Sudan has mountains and plains. It is the most beautiful place in which our sheikh, bin Laden, can operate."

[...]

"Allah Akbar.

"Allah Akbar.

"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."

[...]

"They have a tank called Abrams. By Allah, we have a remedy for this tank, which will make it melt. The tank will melt. Allah Akbar."[...]

"All We Want Is to Die For The Sake Of Allah"

"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."
