Trump Is Conditioning Removal of Sudan Sanctions on Recognizing Israel

They toppled the old ruler but the demands list just got longer

Funny that the US should be so concerned about the state of Sudan’s relations to a third nation

Sudanese activists took to social media on Saturday in an online campaign against normalisation with Israel, after reports on Friday emerged of a possible normalisation deal between Sudan and Israel next week.

The campaign denounced the use of the Palestinian cause as a bargaining chip in efforts to remove Sudan from the US terror list, saying it would not accumulate into any real positive economic change on the ground.

The activists also called normalisation with Israel as a stab in the back of Palestinian brethren, saying the cause is “priceless”.

The move comes as reports suggest Sudan could become the next Arab country to officially form diplomatic relations with Israel, after the US hinted at more Arab countries joining accords struck between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Citing Hebrew-language newspaper Maariv, Israeli broadcaster i24 News stated Sudan and Oman are holding US-brokered talks with Israel so as to announce peace deals next week.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft on Wednesday revealed a third normalisation agreement between Israel and an unnamed Arab country may happen in the next day or two.

i24 News previously reported Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will likely meet with Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, the leader of Sudan’s transitional sovereign council, in the coming days in Uganda, the second meeting between both officials.

In return for the normalisation deal, Sudanese officials hope Khartoum will be removed from the United States’ State Sponsors of Terrorism list. [Probably because that is what has been communicated to them.]

The designation, in place since the 1990s, exposes Sudan to harmful sanctions and limits the amount of international aid available to the country amid a spiralling economic crisis.

On its end, Oman expressed support for last month’s normalisation of ties between the neighbouring UAE and Israel.

Since the UAE and Bahrain signed an agreement to establish full diplomatic ties with Israel earlier this month, speculation has pointed to a handful of other Arab countries on the brink of reaching similar deals, with Oman and Sudan as the most likely candidates.

The Trump administration has made Israeli-Arab normalisation a key focus of its Middle East foreign policy close to the US elections on November 3.

The Palestinians have been vocal in their opposition to the agreements, arguing such decisions remove any incentive for Israel to end its occupation of the Palestinian territories.

    Normalization? There is nothing normal about recognizing a country that viciously attacked the USS Liberty Remember that?
    And wipe that stupid smirk off your face, Bibi.
    Mr. President, we did not elect you for this. Cut foreign aid to Israel.

    Yes,,,it’s too bad Mr. Trump doesn’t focus on his deteriorating nations survival as much as he does Israels survival. Maybe the US could become a part of Israel… in the real sense.

      He doesn’t care about any nation except Trump Nation.
      Israel has controlled Congress through AIPAC for long enough that they should just buy DC and turn it into a new Gaza strip.

      Now better than Monty python and the holy grail.

      No thanks. I want no part of that oppressive, insanely paranoid culture. US propping up of Israel is almost beyond insane. There is no longer any practical or moral reason to have Israel or the Saudi royal family as close allies. They are both morally repugnant. However, Vice President Kushner appears to be an Israeli citizen first.

      1. disqus_3BrONUAJno says

        Why would Kushner need to be an American citizen as long as he’s married to Trump’s dumbest daughter?

    Israel is one of many quasi US colonies—amerikan imperialism requires that military dictatorships are created and civilized peoples are murdered tortured and displaced…while Israel is more democratic than USA they serve to destabilize conditions in ME…trump is not the problem: amerikans are the problem
    as Hofstdster demonstrated, the Spanish/american war had zero to do with the govt which was isolationist, but derived from “the blood thirstiness of the amerikan people” (The Paranoid Style in amerikan Politics)

      Ummm Israel attacked US with 911, Epstein AND ISIS get it?

    First off I think the Sudanese people need to replace their government. Any gov’t that aligns with Israel cannot be trusted. Second of all I am wondering just what is going on over there. Many countries avoided Israel as much as they can and now all of a sudden we have a bunch of small countries making peace deals with Israel and we all know how well Israel keeps it’s deals. So why are all thee treaties being made now? These treaties will probably come with embassies and the jews will have a foothold in those countries. Is this Shitrael’s attempt at taking over these countries in the long run? The people of these countries need to get rid of their current governments and kick Shitrael out.
