Dead : John Garang, Vice President of Sudan


Did the USA, the UK and Israel turn against Garang because he ended the civil war and joined the Sudan government? The fracture of Sudan may help western oil, gold and diamond companies and may weaken Egypt?

Vice President of Sudan.

The Sudanese government confirmed Monday that Vice President John Garang was killed when a Ugandan presidential plane he was traveling in crashed into a southern Sudan mountain range.
John Garang negotiated an end to the civil war and recently joined the government. His death in a copter crash is a blow to reconciliation.

KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudanese state television said on Sunday the aircraft carrying ex-rebel John Garang, now first vice-president, had landed safely in a camp in south Sudan after it was reported missing earlier in the day.

"Reports indicate that the aircraft of the first vice president John Garang landed safely in a camp in the south," state television said in a brief statement without giving details.

As a cover for its agents in the Sudan, Mossad created a resort near the Red Sea.

Was Israel behind the separatist movement of the Southern Sudanese? Was Sudan used as a tool by Tel Aviv in order to achieve a long term goal which was to weaken Egypt and come in from the backdoor?

According to a book published by the Dayan Institute for Middle East and Africa Studies called "Israel and the Sudanese Liberation Movement", Israel adopted a strategy which they called 'pulling the limbs then cutting them off'. What this policy entailed was the building of bridges with minority groups, pulling them out of the nationalist context and then 'encouraging' them to separate.

Tel Aviv hoped that this strategy would inevitably weaken the Arab world, break it down and threaten its interests at the same time. In order for this strategy to work, Mossad agents opened lines of communication and connections with the Kurds in Iraq, Maronites in Lebanon and Southerners in Sudan.

Of the three groups, the most important and strategic to Israel's interests were the Southern Sudanese due to the country's close proximity to Egypt. According to the Israeli military belief, Egypt is their most dangerous enemy in region, hence the deep concentration on achieving the goal of weakening it and threatening it from the back.

Israel set up relations with some 32 African countries in an attempt to break into Southern Sudan. Of all the emerging leaders of the separatist movement John Garang was the one chosen and so began Israel's role in destabilising Sudan.

Garang was prepared and backed so that he could set up a proper challenge to the government of Khartoum. According to the book "Israeli's" concentration on Sudan was part of Israel's strategy towards the Red sea, a place which from the start "Israel" thought of as an extremely essential outlet, it worked hard on ensuring it free for its ships to use in fear it becomes an Arabic lake that could be used to besiege it (Israel). Similar to what happened in 1967 and 1973 when the Arabs closed the Tiran and "Bab al mandab" straits."

Israel sent its top men to insure the success of the Sudan project. One of the Mossad top level agents, Ahron Za'eer, was assigned the case and sent more than 5000 experts and advisors in agriculture, construction and the military in a bid to 'enter' countries neighbouring Sudan such as Ethiopia and Uganda so as to 'surround' it.

However the mastermind behind this whole project was none other than Ben Gurion's advisor on Arab affairs, Uri Lubrani, who stated "We must "survey" and observe all what happens in Sudan, that quarter that forms a strategic deepness to Egypt, in addition to its coasts on the Red Sea, it makes Sudan an excellent strategic position. Therefore, it is important to work on finding basis either in Sudan or around it. For this reason, supporting the separatist movements in south Sudan is important for "Israel's" security. Of all the African countries Israel used as a tool to get into Sudan, none were as strategic as Ethiopia.

Emperor Haile Selassie signed an agreement which allowed Israel to supervise all of Ethiopia's security organisations including the police, intelligence and the ministry of interior. This security carte blanch enabled Israel's Mossad and military intelligence to have unprecedented control and to concentrate its efforts not only on the Sudan but on other strategic countries, such as Yemen.

Israel's role with the Southern Sudanese movement started from as early back in the late 1950's up to now. Ranging from financial aid, military training and backing in the shape of weapons, Israel's hand has been involved.

What does the future hold for Sudan? After attaining the seat of vice-presidency, how will John Garang 'pay' back his dues? Garang's movement has become part of the ruling forces in Khartoum, the back door entrance to Egypt, which brings up another question what does all this activity mean to Egypt's security?



Wayne Madsen, August 1, 2005, writes that the helicopter death of Sudan's new Vice President and southern Sudanese rebel chief Dr. John Garang fits a pattern in Africa.

Madsen explains that "at the time of his death, Garang was under the protection of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, a close Bush, Blair, and Sharon ally.

"Garang had just entered into a power sharing agreement between his southern Sudanese, mainly Christian and African liberation Sudan People's Liberation Movement, and Sudan's northern and mainly Arab and Islamic central government after a lengthy and bloody civil war.

"Ethnically diverse Northern and southern Sudan are known to straddle immense oil reserves -and they are being exploited by Chinese oil companies much to the consternation of U.S. and British oil companies and the Bush and Blair administrations. Donald Rumsfeld's private special forces teams are operating throughout Africa, especially in Uganda.

"Garang, a one-time Marxist, may have outlived his usefulness to Washington and the Bush administration. He would join Savimbi, Mobutu, Kabila, and other African leaders as "throw aways" for the corporations that determine America's Africa policy.

"U.S. oil and military policies in the Rift Valley are centered on Uganda's Museveni, Rwanda's Kagame, and Ethiopia's Meles. No others need apply.

"According to a Secret United Nations memo from March 1997, Museveni's (and those of his ally, U.S. military client Paul Kagame of Rwanda) fingerprints were all over the aerial assassination of the Rwandan and Burundian Presidents in 1994, an event that triggered the worst genocide since World War II and the eventual dismemberment of Congo/Zaire.

Museveni supplied the Russian-made Igla series surface-to-air missiles, captured by U.S. forces in Iraq during Operation Desert Storm and used by Kagame's Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) to shoot down the Rwandan presidential aircraft. After seizing power in Rwanda, Kagame, with U.S. and British assistance, launched two invasions of Congo. Congo's fracture and the eventual assassination of Congolese President Laurent D. Kabila, with a wink and a nod from Washington and London, was a boon for U.S, British, and Israeli gold and diamond miners.

"Kellogg, Brown & Root/Halliburton helped Angola track down and assassinate Ronald Reagan's 'George Washington of Africa,' Dr. Jonas Savimbi, Angola's UNITA rebel leader. That was a boon for U.S. oil companies and British and Israeli diamond and gold miners. And to ensure that Angola's government remained a central player in UN negotiations between Luanda and rebel UNITA forces, UN envoy and chief negotiator Alioune Blodin Beye's aircraft suspiciously crashed on its final stage of landing at Abidjan airport, in Beye's native Ivory Coast.

"Niger's Tuareg leader Mano Dayak was killed in a suspicious plane crash in Niger a year and a half after the shooting down of the Rwanda One aircraft. As with the Rwandan and Burundi leaders with their opposition, Dayak was engaged in peace negotiations with the central Niger government and was on his way to Niamey when the plane crashed. However, an autonomous Tuareg government threatened to undermine the plans of Exxon and other U.S. oil companies and mineral miners to have a free hand in exploiting oil and mineral resources around Lake Chad, along the Chadian-Nigerien border.

"Equato-Guinean officials were mum about who and how many people died in a recent plane crash near the capital Malabo. Equatorial Guinea, an oil rich but immensely poor African nation, was recently in the news as a result of the exposure of slush funds maintained by the former Riggs Bank of Washington, DC on behalf of Equatorial Guinea's dictator Teodoro Obiang. President Bush's uncle, Jonathan, was a senior executive with Riggs.

"It is imperative to exercise a healthy dose of skepticism whenever there is a plane crash involving key political figures in Africa. We know from history that colonialist and apartheid forces were involved in the shooting down of the aircraft of UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold and Mozambican President Samora Machel.

"Now, Garang's death in one of Museveni's helicopters may presage the fracture of Sudan and that will be a boon for U.S. oil companies and British and Israeli gold and diamond miners. The trend is unmistakable. War crimes are being committed in Africa every day and Washington, London, and Tel Aviv rake in abominable profits.

"Garang's helicopter crashed after it departed Museveni's ranch at Rwakitura, about 200 miles southwest of Kampala, near the Rwandan border. Garang was on his way back to New Site, his base in southern Sudan, after meeting with Museveni."


About John Garang from

The Sudan People's Liberation Army SPLA leader John Garang is a Christian of the minority Dinka tribe with a degree from Grinell College (Iowa) and advanced degrees from Iowa State, and with military training from the U.S. Army's Fort Benning in Georgia. Originally based in Ethiopia, the SPLA shifted to South Sudan and Uganda after rebel leader Yoweiri Museveni seized power by force in Uganda in 1987. Several factions often at war with one another, the SPLA has for years received covert military support from the U.S. and its clients.

In 1996, the U.S. sent nearly $20 million in military hardware through the front line states of Eritrea, Ethiopia and Uganda. Since then the US has escalated its covert support but U.S. military assistance is also routed through Egypt and Israel, who have trained rebels and shipped weapons via Eritrea, Uganda and Ethiopia. In 1998, U.S. military assistance to Egypt was $500 million, and to Israel $1000 million. Uganda has contracted Israel to refurbish four Russian Mig fighter aircraft recently acquired....
