    William Lloyd wrote a lengthy story entitled “Is Bashir’s Regime Crumbling?” in the TIME, an American weekly news magazine on the background of the late sabotage attempt.

    The writer said the attempt in which pro Islamic Movement figures are involved came came amid the escalating differences among the Islamists.

    The article added that the 8th Islamic Movement conference has incited disagreement and differences among the Islamists. Some voices hoped to use the conference to push for reforms in the National Congress Party. Accordingly, these fugues were plotting to get rid of President Al Bashir himself.

    The article concluded that the state is crumbing and in its final days.

    As we notice, the article is biased and lack accurate information. No one denied that the sabotage attempt was crafted by some pro Islamic movement figures, but it untrue to claim that the state has become weak due to differences within the Islamic movement. If there were differences, the government wouldn’t have announced the sabotage attempts and name s of the plotters.

    Even the Islamists were not resentful of the mention. On the contrary, most of the Islamic movement leaders and officials have insisted on bringing the suspect to fair trial, saying the attempt was tended for personal ambitions.

    The differences with any political party are positive and good indicator of the democratic practices within the political organizations. The Islamists know how to contain their differences and run the government affairs very smoothly.

    The writer has alluded to armed resistance against the government, unrest and resentfulness of the citizens, economic decline following the cessation of South Sudan oil exports.

    Regarding armed movements fighting the federal government, let’s say that these movements have no clear goals. Although, they argue that they fight the government for development and better services, they use their power to loot the natives or liquidate their rivals.
    The Sudanese should not be blamed for armed resistance because it is not something new. Rebellion dates back to early 1955 up to 2005 , when the current government signed the Comprehensive Peace Agreement which gave the southerners self determination that led to secession of South Sudan.
