Darfurians are predominantly Muslim Many, like Ali al Haj Mohameda Bornuan, ran as an Islamist for governship of Darfur but was defeated. In 1994, when he was Minister of Federal Affairs, he divided up Darfur into the three states of today in hope that Islamists candidates might succeed. 39 Darfur

Ecological pressures first in 1960s, then in 1980spopulation pressures and drought meant that cultivators closed off some of the nomads migration routes in order to protect their fields. Many Arabs lost herds and migrated out of the country for workmany to Libya 40 Darfur By late 1980s, a group that came to be called the Arab Gathering formed close ties with Muammar Gaddafi of

Libya and began a critique of the central government for its neglect. Their ideology exhibited a racist preference for pure Arabs, the Juhayna, in opposition to the riverine groups that controlled the government 41 Darfur-1990s Following coup of Gen Omar Bashir in 1989, the government sought to strengthen ties to the Arab World and in Darfurto expand the position of Arabs by a proliferation of administrative titles that were given to Arabs and not non-Arabs. Many non-Arab groups like Masalit were disarmed and youth sent to fight

against the south. 42 Darfur Arabs in 1990s Musa Hilal emerges as important leader of the Abbala Arabs in the north from his base in Misteriha By 2000, both helicopters and weapons were amassed there.

motivated their actions From an interview with Abubaker Hamid Nur There was too much suffering. I travelled 60 kilometres to go to primary school, in Kornoi, when I was 7; 350 kilometres to go to intermediate school, in Geneina; 400 kilometres to go to secondary school in Fasher; and 1,000 kilometres to go to university, in Khartoum. It was forbidden to speak the Zaghawa language in school. In primary school, the teacher gave us a blue ticket to pass to any boy who spoke Zaghawa. At the end of the day, anyone who had had the ticket was whipped. The whole of Kutum province, with a population of more than 551,000 had one general doctor and no specialists. Women walked more than eight hours daily to get less than 60 litres of water. We were excluded from all key posts and had no way of communicating with the international community to ask for help. Why: Because a gang in Khartoum was controlling everything. (Flint and De Waal, Darfur. 2005, 92-93. 48 JEM Philosophy
