(NEWS) Israel Blamed For American Policy In Sudan

"A senior Sudanese official has laid the blame for problems in his country at the feet of the 'pro-Israel lobby.' Supporters of the Jewish state are to blame for United States President Barack Obama's about-face regarding independence for southern Sudan, said Sudanese Vice President Ali Osman Taha.

Obama has moved from supporting Sudanese unity to backing a referendum that may see the southern part of the country decide to seek independence.

On Thursday, Obama said the referendum 'is one of our highest priorities.' He warned that millions of people could die if war were to break out in Sudan again. Two million people were killed in previous battles between the northern and southern parts of the country."
