Odd things to watch

In this NYTimes story regarding the shooting of the Hamas linked Judge in Gaza it reads:
Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said from Sudan that he would cut short a foreign trip and return to Gaza.

When Haniyeh left on Nov. 28, he planned to travel for a month. That drew criticism because of the need to conclude negotiations with Fatah on a new government and the political violence raging in the Palestinian territories.

In this blog post from Abu Kais it reads,
More details have emerged about the Sudanese envoy's trip to Syria, during which he announced Damascus's alleged support for the Arab initiative.

Both stories are interesting in their own right but what the heck is going on in Sudan that isn't about Darfur? Sudan pledged 10million US dollars to the Palestinians but is that what this is all about? What is being given in return?
