Nuunow, your 100% but nothing can prepare an army or commandos for an assault by gunmen who are suicidal. If one's mission is todie and take so many people you can with you , their will be great difficulties in stopping them. Askari keenyaati oo baashaalka iska jecel maa kula eh in uu u dhimanaayo difaacida meel suuq ah?. Apophis: It's confirmed that a somali father with three children died. My thoughts are with those who died on this horrible terrorist act.
  2. Robbers would not kill 30 people, this looks like a terrorist attack. I hope that no Somalis are involved in this horrible act.
  3. Garoodi, a wise man once said that don't stare at the sun, if you do it you will hurt your eyes, same thing with the soul. Why even argue with an atheist? One who says that his complex life came to existence by chance or random events. What's more annoying is that if you tried to convince him that his very same laptop came to existence by random events driven by chance (example lightning hitting metal and then becoming a laptop) he would reject that claim and tell you that your a liar. Hobbesian: Your atheist, fine by me, you have made your choice as we all do in our lives but their is no need go into stuff that will offend us.
  4. Sound secularism means religious freedom. In other words no state should force religion upon it's citizens. But what Quebec today is doing is the opposite, it's forcing it's citizens upon atheism (non-religionism). Everyone should be free to wear the garments they went. The muslin women the hijab and the jews there kippa and the Sikhs and their turban. A second point is what is the definition of a religious symbol?. What would exactly happen if hijab-garment or the sikh turban becomes the norm of fashion in society? Should it then be allowed because of it's fashion status. Johnny B, would you not count the aggressive french secularism as counter productive? The swedish norm of "religions-frihet" should be a norm to be followed.

Xiin, the author has previously written good analyses of the political reality in Somalia. I suspect though that this mistake is an intentional error. The Jubba-affair and the surprising political deal that Hassan Sh Maxamud came up has confused and divided the previous staunch opposition. The author seems to be in that category. Jubba waa laga tagay yaakhay shimee laga hadlaa the ******* ot Baraawe and Marka and some parts of Mogadishu xiinow. It's not acceptable that HAG politician that originates from Galgadud has been appointed as a mayor for Baraawe.. What happened to the historical original city-based communities. Xaqoodo ha laga hadlo, That's the mutual interest between the groups in Jubba and me!.
  8. The guy Faarax is funny. I remember a more hilarious song "biito biito" he made a couple of years ago. I showed to a friend of mine and I could say that we had a blast. A bizzare but funny song is allways good.
  9. xiinfaniin;978121 wrote: President Hassan, is essentially ceremonial (Italy, India, and Israel are but few examples) and acts, not like a politician in the thick of controversies, but like a statesman and a father figure who breaks deadlocks rather than create them. That is the sort of president envisaged in our Constitution. . The Somali constitution clearly says that the elected president has the right fire/appoint the prime minister. I I dont know how the author of the article made that into ceremonial role. Isreali/Indian presedency can not fire/appoint the prime-ministers or head of governments. In conclusion, Xassan Sh Maxamud is the president of Somalia and the one whom primary responsibility rests upon.

Then they too would be over come with emotion. The rasul (sallahu caliyhe waslim) embodies beauty and all that is beautiful in this deen. Khayr, wixii aan sheegi laahaay adi aaba sheegtay . Jacaylka dhabta ah waa kan axmadaa, sida aa sheegtay. Islam has many dimensions but it's greatest one is the spiritual one, after all is it not a faith that leads us to God ? I am a bit critical to those groups you mentioned. I don't know why but it seems that their way of understanding faith and spirituality has sadly spread as a wild-fire in our community. Instead of infusing the perfection of the prophet (scw) his love for the poor and weak, his mercy for all of humanity regardless of race and creed it seems that they have made him just as you said a static figure. Axmadkeena (scw) sooma hayn ki dhidikiisa ahaay catar , from the best of the fragrances, his face the best of all faces. Khayrow, Khayral anaami riyadaada ilaahay ha kugu tuso.
  12. MMA was just surprised with how clan-ship can mobilize entire communities. We rarely see somalis from all clans joining huge demonstrations for peace and mutual intrests. Nuunow that's a valid point. Dad u banaan baxaayo nabad ma helaayo laakin caadifo qabiil hadey sheekada noqoto, waxaa laa arkaa habro 80-jirayaal mudaaharadaayo. Baydhabo folks should have the administration so should the original "banadiri" city groups who inhabit the coast-line. Baraawe and Marka and parts of Mogadishu must be given the right to form some kind of city based federal states just as the Harari community in Ethiopia got Harar. Imagine the injustice today facing the banadiri community where militias from southern Gaalkacayo roaming freely in Baraawe and Marka. If this is not possible because of the reality on the ground they should be given the choice of the joining the Bay-administration because of the similar culture. Jubba-land and other communities should press HAG-groups on this issue.

  14. The thread was an open discussion for serious discussion, not a pie throwing game. Tallaabo here is an old video/documentary about the in early 1980, It shows how the guerrillas had their own medical clinics, schools and marxist training political educational programs. Women played a central part of the liberation fighters. I am not eulogizing a Tigree movement but they did it with no formal state based support (Somalia ofcourse supported them , mostly by giving it's leaders diplomatic passports). But something went wrong in other parts of Ethiopia. The struggle died down in the east. Why?
  15. If this is true it is a major shift in somali politics. Accountability for murder and mayhem is the key to peace.
  16. Rice and meat combined with banana must be a somali invention. Hey it is better then the tiikniko, it does not kill people;)

Yet they prefer to traffic themselves to Bosaso and then Yemen. Also read this: ] Mad Mullah, historical facts did not answer the question. Meesha wax lee ka jiro.

  18. Kolley sheekada shirka turkiga wey dhamaatay, When three men were sitting under the desk that said "somali president". Faroole, xassan shaykh and those ahlusunna guys". The Turks were probably saying "what is it with these dark people., who is the president". Hope the government gets all the support it needs from EU. These meetings and the recognition from Washington and London means that FGS here to stay but one critical question remains. Wax kasto dhamaad ey leeyihiin, what will happen when dollars stops to roll in for Moseveni in Kampala and Amisom withdraws.? These cosy pictures does not change the situation in Somalia, we have a entitity saying that they do not belong to Somalia, we have a puntland saying that they do not accept FGS, and of course we have our own crazy taliban/al-shabaab blowing up things, and then we have people whose intrest is simply not see law and order in Mogadishu. Big questions for Xassan Shaykh to answer.
  19. I invited was invited to a dinner today by a dear friend to me, an engineer by profession He has always been one of those friends you could talk hours without getting bored.. We talked about memories and things that friends do. As we are both married we talked bout how we in our younger days would exchange the phone numbers or the msn of loose but sweet xalimos. I reminded him of an incident when he wanted to be alone in my apartment and I refused, I said this loudly and h quickly pinched me because his wife was making the tea in the kitchen. I hope she did not hear my comment. I know ho women can influence men's choice of friends. Anaaba dad si xoog liga reebay. While I am from Mogadishu my friend was born and raised deep in the somali region of Ethiopia. He knew that i wanted t go Mogadishu for Ramadan this year but I could not because of personal reasons. But my friend with his chain-smoking beyzaani attitude said he could fast in Yurub so he went to Somali region of Ethiopia. He told me about a lot of developments but he also said that the region in comparison with other regions of Ethiopia was the lest developed. He also noticed that federal structure of Ethiopia was a theater but I told him with a firm conviction that this was not new news. Everyone knew this but he then replied " Laakin Gaadifyow, you get a strange feeling when you see all the yoth depressed and having a feeling that they have no future in a countrey that they feel they do not belong to". Becouse of his academical background he quickly noticed that the universaties in Ethiopia was in Amharic and that somalis in that region was one of those ethnic groups that never bother to learn amharic. In other words he described a people that faced Soomaliya and Keenya for buisness and education then in Ethiopia. Without being melo-dramatic some of friends say I am that's the quote that shocked me, What's really happening in that region and why have the regime in Addis closed the whole region from investors and even from human rights groups?. The dinner went fine and we drifted away from politics. He told me that after the afur their were long khat-sessions and that he enjoyed himself. I then asked him a rather private question but he then quickly again pinched me. I went home and I got home and parked my car I saw my neighbor a very short Eritrean man, I greeted him and felt some joy looking down on him (literally because of his shortness). I love that I am tall and feel exited when I stand in-front of a short guy! Yaab maahinow! Try it out. I greeted my wife and reflected about the day The great food my friends wife prepared and how his trip was. I then remembered my short Eritrean neighbor. Despite his people being short and only 4 million his people archived liberation and defeated an army that Somalis in the region could not. So what went wrong? Who am I looking down on that short man when his other short comrades achieved something tall somalis did not Nin walbo xornimadiisa asagaa aa gacantiisa ku haayo. The desire for freedom lies within the individual. Enough said but a perfect example that our somali brothers in Jigjiga doolow and Dire Dawa could have in their struggle is how a small band of Eritrean hard-core well trained political educated guerrillas defeated and humiliated one of the best armed governments of Africa. The Eritrean had their luck of history (mengistu lost the support from Moscow in 1991 while the somalis in kilil 5 lost or got engaged in a vicious Somali civil war in Somalia) but still (Mengistu) was not able to defeat the EPLF early 80-ties. Note that the EPLF was composed by muslim eritreans (ELF) and christian tigrayans. They were from different ethnic backgrounds and some did not even have a common language to communicate within themselves. They of course did not want to use the hated Amharic. While the EPLF regrouped and repelled the offensive mengistu conducted the somalis under WSLF or ONLF or what ever name was not successful in liberating one inch of that land. Some would in hurry answer that the TPLF and EPLF worked together and that is why Eritrea got it's independence. Isayas and Meles were both from the same ethnic group. Well this might be true but the same appliedto the WSLF at that time, They were in alliance with the soomali aabow or Oromo liberation front and Afar liberation front.. So using this as an arguement is not valid. The solers from Somali region in Ethiopia have some serious questions to answer, . My personal theory is that Jaale Siyaad (alle ha u naxariisto) intervened so roughly that the somalis in the region never had a chance regroup themselves decide their destiny. After the defeat in 1978 they simply went to Mogadishu, why fight when you had your Somali brothers in Somalia you could flee to? We have a banadiri proverb that goes like , nin mininkiisa meel ku haynin maxaas dad u sheega?. But one question remains that I asked earlier, what went so perfectly good in Eritrea but so wrong in Dire Dawa and Jigjiga. Maybe Abtigiis Zack or others could put their comment on this issue, kilinka ayaamahan maxaa ka socdo?
  20. A poem composed by a famous somali shaykh goes like "Maxabatu Fardun calayna" ( the love to him is an privileged obligation). Some people today pray and performe the rituals of Islam but no one has reached faith if we do not love the messenger more then our mothers and fathers. God even confirmed the prophet's faith when he said that he was sent to us as a mercy, meaning that loving him leads to blessings. Marka Maxabbada nabiga qalbigeena ha nagu badiyo.

Those OG-fighers who are still fighting are in my eyes not sell-outs, but those who made a deal with Malas plus the famous Itixaad wadaads are a shame to that community. Kolley dhulkaas marka ey dadka ka imaaday ey ka tashadaan aa xal laga hela. As long as somalis are divided amongst clan lines their will be no separate somali region. Even so, the future is bleak, a somali government guarded by ethiopian supported amison army is not in the best intrest of somali seperatists in Ethiopia. Neither is the support from a vindictive Isayas of Eritrea. But one question remains that I asked earlier, what went so perfectly good in Eritrea but so wrong in Dire Dawa and Jigjiga.

  22. Time to cultivate those land, If only somalis understood the beauty and resourcefullnes our land. We could use the livestock of the north and the agriculture from the south and the fish from the sea. All these combined would make us rich rather then today, waiting on the ATM and getting and heartattack seeing the few houndred dollars we get from the ceerta.
  23. Man_Mullah, I really do not have any comment to your bigoted attitude, calling those who spread islam in somalia and deep in to the horn of Africa with deep wisdom and patience as"sufi nonsense". Whats the "the fake" story that I mentioned sxb. One thing I do not do is speak of things that I have no knowlidge of, you should also take that example. This story is widely accepted in orthodox sunni teachings. Even the scholar Ibn Tayymiya and his student Ibn Qayim acknowledged the existence of karamaat (divine intervention among pious believers). Even Imaam Taxaawi said in his book (the universal accepted sunni codex of theology) said that karamaat is part of our faith. An example of an karamaat that Siid-Cumar Faaruq (rc) made in his life is of-course when he from his minbar in Madina warned the army of Qaadisiya in Iran, should we reject that also? The main point of my post if you read it again is to show how Paul was misled by satan while our Shaykh withheld the divine law and rejected satans temptations. That is how simple Paul misled Christanity. nBy the way Mad mullah I think should stick to your other thread about morrocan music:D Baaba suufiyaasha dhibka dhaaf, Roccalittoria, dadkaasi adi ma aragtay? Hadaadna aragtay those people are utterly wrong, simple as that. Coofle: Well said, yet again though, I could have formulated the thread better but my point was how one single man, Paulwas misled by satan while our noble shaykh stood fast upon the divine law.

A punch of non qualified qasaaro-joog Having said that the qurbo joog should live like locals and not segregate themselves. This will keep the living costs down and thus the resentment.

  25. All Somalis have heard of the Sayyid Cabdul-Qaadir Jeylaani. (qadasallahu sirrahu) We have heard our Islamic scholars talk about him and seen and heard the islamic students (xerowyaasha) chanting his eulogies in the dusty semi-desert plains of Somalia. I will not dwell into the history of this friend of Allah but I will illustrate a beautiful short story that highlights the difference between those who have truly attained the firm belief in God and those who claim in it. Within the eternal struggle in the inner dimensions of of every human being their is a constant struggle between evil and good. God says in the Quran: ”By the Soul, and the proportion and order given to it; And its enlightenment as to its wrong and its right;- Truly he succeeds that purifies it, And he fails that corrupts it!” (Qur’an 91: 7-10) For those materialists in this forum who only believe in what they can see or hear or sense., Those who are limited to believe only on their own perceptions their will be another thread to them. But for those who truly believe beyond this realm I hope that this short story will show the un-unshakable faith that the friend of God took when he was tested by God in comparison with the christian Apostle Paul. The Munaaqib of the Shaykh teaches us that once, the Sayyid was teaching the prestigious darul-Hikma of Baghdaad. He saw one of the most learned scholars of his time and thousands of students but the shaykh (nafcallahu bih) felt that something was missing in his inner dimension. He felt that he was yearning for God and asked the sultan the appoint someone else as the grand shaykh. The Sultan suprised by this asked Cabdul-Qaadir and said him " Yaa Cabdal-Qaadir, we have benefied from you, why is it so that you want to leave this honorable post. The Shaykh answerd : "What is the point ya khalifatul muslimin for me to be here while their are other knowledge persons that can replace me? The Sultan answered and finally gave Cabdul-Qaadir his permission to spread the call of God. One cold night in the deserts of Iraq while Sayyid Cabdul-Qaadir was all alone making dhikr and big cloud opened up for him. He saw a shining light (but it was really a hidden demon) speaking to him and saying "oh Cabdul-Qaadir, I am your lord and I have revealed you from all of your duties from Islam" The Sayyid answered with no fear his beloved tongue " shut up oh enemy of God" The light in the heavens then replied "Oh Abdul-Qaadir, I fooled many before you, but I could not deceive you". The Sayid then answered " Shut up once again, You did not fool me by strength, you could not fool because of God only not because of my wisdom or strength" Another similar story happened to Apostle Paul, in his words he says in the new testament "I saw a light calling upon me and and telling me that Jesus is the lord and son of God. Paul continued saying that the light continued and saying we made it lawful for you what was not before lawful before Jesus". See the difference between of Paul and Abdul-qaadir. Whil Cabdul-qaadir was not fooled by satan while Paul failed. Such character was the friend of God, waliyullah Sheekh Cabdul-Qaadir Jeylaaani alle ha u naxariisti, acmaalkiisna aan ku anfacno, Rabbina ha naga aqbalo tawasulkiisa. God knowes best.
