Farrakhan's Secret Relationship
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed an estimated 600 students at UC Berkeley last Saturday, and told  Black students not to befriend any Jew without first reading “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews,” a book whose thesis is that “the Jews” were behind the black slave trade.  Heck of a way to start up a friendship!

Free, Feed and Heal the Captives As South Sudan begins the process of nation building, we are concerned about the fate of estimated tens of thousands of Southerners still enslaved in the north. Those freed report daily beatings, rape (of girls, boys and women), and forcible religious conversions. People murdered and mutilated in slave raids, branded like animals. Children sold off and separated from their parents forever.

Will Freedom Come for Sudan's Slaves? On Jan. 9, the people of South Sudan began their week-long referendum to decide whether to separate from the Arab-Muslim North and form an independent country. But Achol Yum Deng didn't vote. Though she has more reasons to seek separation from the North than most of her countrymen, she couldn't register: Since 1998, Achol was a slave serving her master in the North and was only liberated just before the voting began.

Sudanese Diaspora Leaders Angry at Obama

A photographer and a blogger El Marco has interviewed Sudanese Diaspora leaders, including the AASG's Associates Francis Bok and Simon Deng, about their views on President Obama's Sudan policy.

Here are some experts from the article that originally appeared on Looking at the Left Blog.

October 25, 2010

Asked about the Obama administration’s commitment to peace, Francis Bok said:

"We are so worried now about how the U.S. is going to protect us on this. Because we don’t see them speaking that much. I am not willing to be once again forced into slavery by the northern Sudanese oppressors. For over 50 years my people have been oppressed and marginalized by these people who reached power in 1956. My people want to be a free nation, and rule ourselves like other societies. Three million southern Sudanese people have been slaughtered by the radicalist, extremist fundamentalist regime in Khartoum."

2010 Sudan Freedom Walk Rally in DC

October 7, 2010

Sudanese Americans and their supporters gathered on the front lawn of the Capitol in Washington DC to rally for democracy and freedom from genocide and slavery in Sudan.




The rally is a culmination of the Sudan Freedom Walk – an initiative spearheaded by an escaped slave Simon Deng and the recently deceased NBA star Manute Bol in 2006.  2010 Sudan Freedom Walk aims to focus the world’s attention on the referendum in January of 2011 in which the people of Southern Sudan will determine their future as an independent state or as a part of the unified Sudan. The initiative’s organizers and participants demand that the US government and the international community ensure the vote is free and fair. Besides Simon, other speakers included Dr. Abdel Gabar Adam, Dr. Charles Jacobs, Rev. Gloria White-Hammond, Neimat Ahmadi, the world-famous Sudanese rap artist Emmanuel Jal, and leaders of the Sudanese Diaspora in the US.

CSI Urges Obama to Keep Eradication of Sudanese Slavery on Agenda

September 17, 2010

The torture that blinded 14-year-old Ker Aleu Deng failed to kill his optimism and craving to learn. Enslaved by jihadi militiamen during Sudan's North-South civil war (1983-2005), Ker was hung upside down from a tree by his master, Zacharia Salih, who then rubbed chili peppers into his eyes. The master's motive was to prevent the boy from helping his abused mother – Zacharia's sex slave – escape from captivity. With the assistance of CSI, Ker has now started to memorize English words and is eager to receive a formal education.

Farrakhan’s Achilles’ Heel

This article first appeared in the Jewish Advocate

July 30, 2010

By Charles Jacobs and Sasha Giller

Jews around the world are in a hot wrangle over a conversion bill in Israel’s Knesset that raises the exquisitely contentious question of “who’s a Jew?” According to the most-worried, if passed, the bill could give Orthodox rabbis power to nullify conversions performed by non-Orthodox rabbis outside Israel.  I read today that the bill is being put off until October. Whew!

The Imam and the Slaves

By Charles Jacobs

April 22, 2010

I was in Israel for Pesach, near Ashkelon - not all that far from where the rockets fall. At our Seder I was reminded, as I am each year at this time, of the Passover I spent in South Sudan 10 years ago, witnessing the emancipation of slaves. At the point where the Haggadah commands us to remember that we Jews were slaves in Egypt, I privately re-lived a stunning moment in Sudan: John Eibner of Christian Solidarity International stood in front of hundreds of black African women and children and explained that money had been paid to their masters and now they were free. I had never experienced - and don't expect to ever again - such cries and dances of joy.
