In Sudan, the Islamist government is stepping up attacks against Christians and black Africans in the Nuba mountains. The violence is part of President Omar al-Bashir’s decades long pursuit of ethnic and religious cleansing. In recent reports, we have broken down some of the causes of conflict spreading throughout Africa.
Once again we find ethnic/religious cleansing and natural resources is the cause for persecuting Christians and the people of the Nuba Mountains in Sudan. The people are tired of being casualties and oppressed by the greed of radicals, nations and men. Most likely, they will never see any benefits from the wealth produced from their homeland’s natural resources. Major news outlets publish sensational headlines keeping the focus on religious conflicts, which instigate and further spread violence and hate. But behind the scenes, they are stripped by powerful men causing and taking advantage of the instability, which mainly goes unnoticed by media and the international community. Where are the peacemakers?
Take a few moments out of your busy schedule to remember them and pray for them. Lift up our hurting family to the Lord. They are weary and want nothing but peace. May they feel the presence of God’s grace, mercy and your prayers.
