Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir

Sudan’s President has claimed the CIA, America’s intelligence agency, and Israel’s Mossad are behind the Islamist militant groups Boko Haram and Isis.  [1] [2] [3] Omar al-Bashir used an interview with Euronews to claim there was a connection between the American and Israeli intelligence organisations and both extremist groups.   Al-Bashir told the broadcaster: “I said CIA and the Mossad stand behind these organisations; there is no Muslim who would carry out such acts.” [1] [2] [3]  The 71-year-old advised that the battle against ISIS and Boko Haram should not be confronted with military power alone, but also with ideological conversion of the radicals.  “Our policy has been largely successful; after we arrest these young people, we bring a group of young scholars to engage in dialogue with them about their thoughts, and we succeed to bring a lot of them back from their radical ideas,” he said. [5][9]

His remarks come just a few days after members of the Islamic State slaughtered 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt in Libya because the men were Christian. Boko Haram kidnapped over 300 schoolgirls in April with many still missing, and have taken thousands of lives since 2009. [4] Last week, ISIS claimed it had captured a spy for Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, and a report late last month named the CIA and Mossad as responsible for the 2008 killing of a top Hezbollah official.  [5] In January, Melih Gokcek, the mayor of the Turkish city Ankara, claimed Mossad was involved in the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, committed by Islamist militants. [2] Explaining his conspiracy theory, al-Bashir suggested Israel was behind the mass shooting because it wanted to “boost enmity towards Islam”, the Financial Times reports. [2]

Maybe al-Bashir is right.  Sometimes it takes a murderer to recognize another murderer. Al-Bashir is a career military who served in the Egyptian army in the Arab-Israeli war in 1973. He was also involved in the fighting against armed groups from southern Sudan in the early days of the civil war. He took control of Sudan, then Africa’s largest country, in a military coup in 1989, later appointing himself president.  We remember that in July 2008, the International Criminal Court indicted al-Bashir on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity, and rape in Darfur. The arrest warrant was signed on 2009, but the man is still free because the Arab League and the African Union condemned the warrant. [4] He visited Egypt and Qatar, but both refused to arrest and hand him over to the ICC. He visited ICC member Chad in 2010, but the country also refused to turn him in. [4] He is the first sitting head of state to be indicted by the International Criminal Court. [5]

The Obama administration maintains surprisingly friendly relations with the al-Bashir government. The White House invited Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti and Dr. Ibrahim Ghandur, the deputy chairman of the National Congress Party, to the National Prayer Breakfast in early February. [4] Both men allegedly worked with al-Bashir to commit what the ICC has deemed mass genocide in Darfur. Karti was the commander of the Popular Defense Force, which raided villages in South Sudan and took women and children as slaves. [4]
