I have to wonder if this is Yoshie Furuhashi using an assumed name. 
MRZine has been besides itself recently about how South Sudan is a tool 
of Israel and imperialism. At least that's what you assume she is trying 
to say since the references to South Sudan are articles from the Israeli 
press, etc. with no attempt to analyze them. I guess we are supposed to 
get agitated and start a new movement to re-unite Sudan or something.

Anyhow, for those of you interested in some historical background, I 
recommend a couple of things that I have written in the past:
