US charge d’affaires Joseph Stafford, who has been serving in northern Sudan (Islamic), not the South (Christian), resigned his post after he converted to Islam. Apparently an Islamic nation and a free nation are not compatible.
How does Stafford reconcile his conversion with the North’s Islamic genocide in the Nuba mountains, along with Christians, animists etc.?
No mention of this conversion and resignation in the enemedia.

The US charge d’affaires in Khartoum, Joseph D Stafford, resigned from his post after he converted to Islam, Sudanese local media sources said.
Stafford told the foreign ministry that his resignation was made for “personal reasons” but Sudanese sources claimed that the envoy was forced to resign after he turned to Islam.
Sources said that Stafford has recorded visits to the headquarters of Ansar al-Sunnah in Sudan and established a close relationship with a number of Sudanese clerics through these visits.
The U.S. State Department has not made any statement to confirm or deny the news on Joseph Stafford.
After his resign, Stafford published an article in the Sudan Tribune and said, “My wife and I have been very fortunate to meet so many wonderful people throughout Sudan who share a strong desire and willingness to improve their communities. We will always remember you and your compelling country, and I know you will continue your hard work for a better life, just as you say daily ‘Fi Kulu Harakah Baraka’ (Arabic for ‘in every move there is a blessing’).”
The U.S. has not appointed an ambassador to its embassy in Khartoum since 1998 and has kept its representation there at charge d’affaires despite Sudan’s demand that it be upgraded.
