The following is something I have been waiting to hear for some time:
Three southern Sudanese states and the region’s capital city have voted for independence by a landslide, according to full provisional results released Wednesday.
Referendum organizers in the southern capital of Juba say 97.5 percent of voters there vote to separate from the north…
An official of northern Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party says he expects the south to become an independent country once the referendum results are official.
Rabi Abdelati Obeid told VOA Wednesday, the NCP is ready to accept and recognize the vote result, even if it is secession.
Obeid also said he believes his party’s commitment towards the referendum should convince U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration to honor its promises of normalizing relations with Khartoum, and taking Sudan off the list of state sponsors of terrorism. http://www.voanews.com/english/news/Landslide-Swells-for-Southern-Sudan-Independence-114211834.html
It is little wonder that South Sudan voted to secede given the history of violence against it from the Muslim-dominated north.
It may be that the northern portion of Sudan will support the coming King of the South while the southern portion of Sudan will more likely be allied with the final King of the North as its religious views seem to be closer to those that the King of the North is expected to hold.
While Sudan is part of the Arab league, it is not clear (to me at least) if southern Sudan will want to be part of that league or not. It would seem that most associated with the Arab league will support the final King of the South as they are predominantly Islamic nations.
Three articles of possibly related interest may include:
The Arab World In the Bible, History, and Prophecy The Bible discusses the origins of the Arab world and discusses the Middle East in prophecy. What is ahead for the Middle East and those who follow Islam?
Is There A Future King of the South? Some no longer believe there needs to be. Might Egypt, Islam, Iran, Arabs, or Ethiopia be involved? What does the Bible say?
Africa: Its Biblical Past and Prophesied Future What does the Bible teach about Africa and its future? Did the early Church reach Africa? Will God call all the Africans?
