Regarding the allegations and the fabrication of extremism and ISIS in Sudan:

  1. It is now very clear that since the beginning of the war, the narrative of Islamists and political Islam has been used as a pretext for war against Sudan. This is used as a cover for the underlying motives of the war, which are colonization and control over Sudan through the Rapid Support Forces militia. The aim is the eradication of Sudanese people, the dismantling of the army and the state, and anyone who stands in the way of these goals.
  2. The world is being frightened with the specter of Islamists and extremism to silence it about the invasion and arming against Sudan and its people.
  3. Recently, there have been fabricated reports and media coverage about the presence of ISIS and extremists in areas under the army’s control. This coincides with the army’s victories and the rise of popular resistance, as well as the emerging global awareness about the realities of this war. Therefore, quick and false reports must be disseminated to prove the existence of extremism to silence the world about violations, curb the army’s victories, and trim the nails of popular resistance.
  4. The Sudanese people must deal with this fabrication with sufficient awareness and respond to it by:
  • Achieving more victories for the army and strengthening the bond between the army and the people.
  • Increasing armed popular resistance under the supervision of the army.
  • Understanding that popular resistance is our weapon against invasion, injustice, and oppression. It is not a luxury or a choice but an inevitable duty to defend ourselves and our land, and it is a source of concern and a reason for national unity. The history of Sudan’s independence and struggle against colonization began with popular resistance, which led to independence and national unity.
  1. The propaganda against the army and the talk about ISIS and extremism, and the discourse against popular resistance, are mainly directed at the external and international platforms. The message of the Sudanese people to the world should be:
  • We are now facing a greater danger than ISIS and extremism. We are facing colonial expansionism without religion or morals, with practices that exceed even the wars of the Middle Ages and surpass the extremism of ISIS and its worst forms of extremism.
  • If the world is keen on fighting extremism, it should help us in our fight against the most brutal and dangerous extremism against us and the world around us.
  • No one in the world holds the torch except us, and we are the most aware of our cause and the most aware of the effective remedy for it, which is our army and armed popular resistance. We should not fear any blame, fear, or false accusations of extremism and ISIS.
  1. Our armed popular resistance under the supervision of the army is the source of our strength and victory. Our hearts, eyes, and ears should be focused only on our people and on enhancing resistance. At that moment, we will prevail, and the world will recognize the justice of our cause.
