Bishop Elnail on the Situation in South Kordofan

The situation in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan continues to worsen while we point fingers at each other here about whether we need to rein in the deficit by asking more from the poor or more from the rich. So much energy is being expended on the 2012 election while children and women are cleansed along with the men because they are the wrong tribe or wrong religion, African or Arab. Please continue to study (be informed), pray (it is more powerful than we know), and act—write your representative, the State Department, the President until the killing stops.�

With more than 200,000 people having fled the Sudanese army’s operations in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan, along with the decimation of crops and evidence of mass graves, a cleric from the province and representatives of international civil society called this afternoon on the Security Council to act.

“We consider this as ethnic cleansing,” Andudu Adam Elnail, the Anglican Bishop of Kadugli, South Kordofan’s capital, said at a Headquarters press conference sponsored by the United States Mission.� The briefing followed his testimony before an emergency hearing of a Congressional Committee and during a day in which he was meeting with key Security Council members to motivate the 15-member body to effect a ceasefire, ensure humanitarian access, and authorize an effective form of international presence and an investigation of alleged human rights violations by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
