Will Southerners experience transparency between their two ruling parties? Without the truth we are all vulnerable to manipulation. Not only is truth important for freedom but without truth there is nothing worth fighting for, because truth in the end of the day will brings freedom as Jesus mentioned in His words "follow the truth and it will set you free."

The truth can literally be a matter of life and death amongst the Islamic community. Therefore, Southerners must know whom they are dealing with. Muslims are extremists who demand that their views be heard while trying to silence others through violence or the threat of litigation. 

 Reason for concern: Muslims say "O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him)."

 If you all take those words and examine them critically, you will find that they refer to Southerners in the case of Sudan who are Christians and animist fighting against the forced spread of Islam in Sudan. In Islam, many dream of a world under the Sharia because they believe it is the solution to the problems that plague humanity. To put it another way, in the case of Sudan, the SPLM/A is a plague of humanity according Arab Muslims. In that case with the National Islamic Front as the major partner in the GNU. It is going to be more than hard for the SPLM party to achieve its objective which they called "United Socialist Sudanese," an ideology which is in the mind of some Sudanese, especially those who strictly claims to be implementing the so called Dr Garang steps.

Therefore, Southerners and the SPLM/A must acknowledge Mr Bona Malwal's ideology which clearly stated that the right of self-determination is the basic demand around which the people of the south should rally (an idea which caused havoc amongst the Southerners and SPLM/A supporters during Dr Garang regime. But so far, it is the dream which almost all Southerners are yearning for. The NIF regime accepted the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), not because she wants to fully unite with the SPLM/A or Southerners, but just for her to regroup herself and launch a massive wipe out of the Southern Sudanese and non-Arabs on the face of Sudan. War is the Muslims' weapon to gain their needs as Mohammed the prophet mentioned in his words and I quote "call them first to embrace Islam, if they refuse, then war."

 In other words, the Arabs will fight Southerners until they renounce that none has right to be worshiped except Allah. Many uneducated Southern intellectuals are credulous toward Islamic leaders; making us vulnerable to the Islamist agenda. This ideology must be dealt with radically, especially by the growing generation in order to create a peaceful Sudan. A Sudan where there is freedom of movement, freedom of warship, and Sudan where tranquillity prevail.
