Dozens of Sudanese demonstrators burned the flag of the Zionist regime on Sunday in Khartoum to protest against the authorities’ decision to normalize relations with Israel.
They gathered in front of the government headquarters, chanting anti-Israel slogans and brandishing signs with the words “normalization is a betrayal” or “normalization is a crime”. Another banner denounced the standardization agreement as “American blackmail.
The demonstrators also carried placards condemning and rejecting the Abraham Agreement, saying: “Death to the Abraham Agreements.
On January 6, on the occasion of the visit of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Sudan signed a normalization agreement with Israel and simultaneously obtained financial aid from the United States, a few weeks after Khartoum was removed from the U.S. list of states accused of financing terrorism.
The standardization agreement has yet to be ratified by the legislature before coming into force. Sudan still does not have a transitional parliament.
Sudan’s transitional authorities have been in place since the fall of former President Omar al-Bashir in April 2019.
The Sudanese Minister of Information declared, at the end of December 2020, that “everything that is said about peace with Israel is an illusion”! Faisal Mohamad Ben Saleh confided to Al-Jazeera that “Khartoum has not made peace with Israel; all it has done has been to seek “deblacklisting” and the end of US sanctions” and if it has accepted normalization with a Zionist entity that has repeatedly bombed Sudanese territory, the cause was simply “getting off the blacklist”.
Well, that’s done, which means that with the departure of Trump’s administration, “everything can go backwards. And the minister added: “After all, in Sudan we are not ready to forget the referendum on the separation of South Sudan from the South, nor the Darfur affair… peace with Israel is impossible. One thing is certain: it is the Sudanese Legislative Council that will have to decide and vote for or against normalization”.
