Subject: RE: South Sudan's majority votes for independence!
It is very exciting for us and I personally thank God and all the People who support us to be able to see this day.
Khartoum Arabs have treated the People of South Sudan in a way indescribable in human language. I saw teachers murdered as a child in 1967 and many of us began bearing dead People at 11 years old because the Khartoum Government.
I personally give great appreciation for the People and Government of Israel for the support given to us in 1970s and the People of the United States for supporting the Sudanese in many ways.
I would like these realtions to continue and I am aware that Khartoum will turn their brutal attention to Darfur, Jubal En Nuba from which My wife Batul come and other marjinalized areas.
Please continue to pray
