In an attempt to restore the momentum to support the Palestinian cause in Sudan, the opponents of normalization launched the “Sudanese League to Resist Normalization” as an arm among students and youth in a country whose internal suffering is almost distracted from the Al-Aqsa cause, according to the association’s founders.
Last January, Sudan signed the “Abraham Accords” with the United States to normalize relations between Arab countries with Israel.
And before that, in February 2020, the President of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, met the outgoing Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in Entebbe, Uganda.

The step of inaugurating the “Sudanese League Against Normalization” comes as a student and youth arm of the “Resist” coalition to operate in Khartoum and all the states and universities of the country.
The activity of the Sudanese Association Against Normalization began in the state of Khartoum, where the federal capital is, with the announcement of the Executive Office in a press conference held on Sunday at the General Center of the Muslim Brotherhood in Khartoum.
The head of the association, Hajj Waqi’ Allah, told Al Jazeera Net that the association’s executive office in the state includes 9 people, and its members are 150-160 members.
He expected an increase in membership through awareness-raising and media campaigns and workshops that the association will implement in the capital, in universities, institutes, and all localities of Khartoum State.
The head of the association at the federal level, Muhammad Dedan, indicates that the association has completed building its offices in 18 states, with 8 people in each executive office.
And he reveals to Al Jazeera Net that the members of the modern association throughout the country have reached 1,100 members.
Muhammad Dedan acknowledges the stagnation of the Sudanese street towards the Palestinian issue in light of the growing normalization steps taken by the Sudanese government with Israel, and attributes this to the advancement of living priorities in light of the economic suffering experienced by the Sudanese.
He points out that the Sudanese people’s loss of confidence in the entities after the revolution is a challenge to the anti-normalization entities, but the Sudanese Association Against Normalization will work hard to restore this trust among students and youth.
In the same context, the spokesman for the popular anti-normalization forces, Al-Sadiq Al-Hajj, says that the political, security and economic conditions that the country is going through contribute to showing the Sudanese street’s weak support for the Palestinian cause.
However, Al-Hajj returns and confirms to Al-Jazeera Net that resistance to normalization is rooted in society through imams of mosques, sheikhs of Sufi orders and Salafi currents.
He expected to “tear” the normalization paper in the first elected parliament because all the major parties, including those affiliated with the ruling coalition, stand in the way of normalization, such as the National Umma Party, the Arab parties and the Communist Party.
“The supporters of normalization are the Sudanese Congress Party, the Republican Brotherhood, and economic groups that have suspicious links with Israel,” he added.
In an attempt to anticipate what the authority’s opponents of normalization might encounter, the Secretary-General of the anti-normalization forces, Muhammad Nour Al-Samawal, warns against exclusion and classification that could confront the modern association by accusing it of extremism.
He stresses that the bet on the association will be great, given that young people in Sudan represent 56 percent of the population, and he pledged to support and support the association.
The League received promises of support as well from the Muslim Brotherhood, and the head of the Palestine Committee of the group, Ahmed Zain al-Abidin, said that they “are with the League, wholeheartedly”, given that the Palestine issue is complex and it is shameful and disgraceful to deal with it politically because the “enemy” considers it a dogmatic issue.
The Sudanese Association Against Normalization is arranging to organize protests in Khartoum and the states against normalization, as it has prepared a large amount of banners with anti-Israel slogans, as well as a tour of its executive office in the states starting in eastern Sudan to meet the leaders of the Native Administration.
The spokesman for the Popular Forces Against Normalization, Al-Sadiq Al-Hajj, indicated that the Sudanese Association to Combat Normalization was established before the Popular Forces, but its organizational building was a little late.
He says that the association will work within Sudanese universities based on agreements with the directors of these universities, and now has direct contacts with the Palestinian resistance factions.
He announced that the association’s next step is a strategy to resist normalization, which will depend on two tracks, the first of which is the media and Asphir resistance to refuting Israeli lies on social media platforms.
He added that “the other path is armed resistance as it is a duty of every Muslim,” warning religious sheikhs who criticize the Palestinian resistance that “there is no room for treason against those who defend Al-Aqsa with arms, as Palestine will be liberated by jihad, not by appeasement,” as he put it.
