Summary
Article summary: 

‘Abd al-Rahmān al-Rāshid writes about the suffering of Christians in the Arab world.

"In a couple of days, the first Christian country in the region will be established in Sudan. This independence comes at the same time where 14 million Arab Christians are suffering from bigotry and armed Islamic extremist groups," said al-Rāshid, referring to Southern Sudan's possible secession from the North.

He explains that even many Muslims groups suffer extremism from the same groups.

Summary
Article summary: 

The author cites Sudanese President ‘Umar al-Bashīr's recent announcement that he plans to apply Sharī‘ah in the north of Sudan if the south secedes.

The author sees such a statement as strange because "in principle Sharī‘ah has been applied in Sudan since September 1983, when former President Ja‘far Numayrī applied it."

Furthermore, "al-Bashīr himself confirmed once again that Sharī‘ah is the source of legislation in the constitution of 1991. Why then did President al-Bashīr feel that Sudan needs to apply a Sharī‘ah that has already in fact been applied for at least three decades," al-Tarifi asks.

Summary
Article summary: 

This column consists of a vitriolic attack on the treatment of women in Muslim countries, with special emphasis on the recent flogging of a woman in Sudan.

"If you wish to determine the reasons for the Muslim nation's economic and social backwardness, then observe the behavior of Muslims," the author writes.

"What kind of virtue is this that extends from Iran to Riyadh to Khartoum without criminalizing their rulers' political adventures, which involve bribes and commissions?" Al-Ja'ārah asks.

"There is no manifestation of virtue in Khartoum save for al-Bashīr's whip, which lashes the backs of women," she says.

"Sudan is ruled by a man sought by the International Criminal Court for commiting war crimes and mass slaughter, yet no sound arises louder than the continuous screams of women," the author laments.

Summary
Article summary: 

The author denounces in strong terms the public flogging of a Sudanese woman for wearing a pair of trousers. He describes footage of the incident as symbolizing "backwardness, ignorance, and racisim."

She was lashed on "the face, the thighs, the posterior, and the stomach" with the flogger's demeanor suggesting "he was about to have an orgasm."

"Videos of Sudanese whippings and Afghan stonings represent scenes that belong in the Middle Ages and the age of witch hunts," Muntasir writes.
