  1. Leader of Ethiopia's Oromo rebels predicts victory 'very soon' WWW.HIIRAAN.COM A rebel leader fighting Ethiopia's government has said his troops are near the capital and preparing another attack, predicting the war will end "very soon" as diplomats rush to negotiate a ceasefire.
  2. I dont get the math why GM should get seats in baraawe let alone mogadishu. Xamar iyo xamar daye, that was the historical and demographic outlook of the city and during the last free election in xamar, Avokaati raajis @xamarwayne folks and Avokate Jimcale got the seats, when did guriceel come in to the picture, specially in baraawe Yaab.
  3. Duufan, brother I would say its Turkey that meet its limit not vica verse. I am usallt criticised going to deep in but acording to the esteemed Prof Ali Mizrui the post colonial pointed out that some muslim countries that has abolished corruption and succsesfully fully accepted assimilation was Tyrkey. He pointed out in his book that Turkey soon captivate muslims countries. Indeed making that hindsight in 1990 was remarkable. The truth is that the Ottoman empire or every muslim nation had no oncept of nation state or citizenship 150 years ago. Our concept of citizenship was the millah system. It was based upon religion,. Your passport or Id would have your religion written on it. Even though it is not relevant no more you can see traces of it in Egypr, When the western powers introduced the concept of nationalism it was a poison that the the turks drank and instead of having islam as glue the Young Turks under Enver Pasha and likes made turkification of the ottomans land. This created friction. Of All arabs the Rashaida and few other tribes and Sudan allied themselves during the 1914 ww1. The Kemalist fascists even rewrote history in order create a new nation, 60% including Somalis who heeded the calls for the defens of the Caliphate, sudanese, arabs, kurds were among the martyrs. Only 40 % the dead and the forces under Mustafa kemal were turks. Many of in Turkey became shocked of Mustafa kemals reforms, abolishing the caliphaste remodelling it self as a secular atheistic government. Deep resentment was among turk as the meaning of a turk meant Islam. A young man son a ottoman governor completed naked Necemedin Erbakan created in 1960 the movement of MILLI-Görush. A code word for "the dawn of Islam". The anatolian turks supported it and 1994 he and his dicipile Mr Erdogan captured power but was ousted, Fazilet partisi was banned. Erdogan broke away and in 2003 Erdogan gathered all poilitical partie sand intellectuals and even the military according to the manifesto the kemalist isolationist policy would be abondended. The isolation had just like china isolated itself until they could compete with the west. In 2008 every kemalist was purged and turkish firms went into places no one would go. Somalia is such a example. Indeed neo-ottomanism was and gloryfying the ottoman past that the kemalists hid became the mainstream. Tv-dramas etc. Turkey today makes billions of dollars of fishing agreements with Somalia while the fragile state of Somalia needs Turkey. Turkey as nato alliance is not a strategic one anymore, IBM were within the scope of Moscow were natio military HQ but with the development of hypersonic IBN that goes zig zag no one any more use counter measure. For 90 years the kemalists turks were knockning on the door EU and were rejected. France a so called secular countrey , the bastion secularism under Sarkozy said it openelym EU is a christian club, Boris Johnsson won Brexit by warning million of turks migrating to the UK. Little did he know that Greece a former ottoman province, would migrate to Turkey to work rather then within the EU. Turkish firms are cuteddging in some fields as the defence technology,. Turkey is the future but the one show must end. The good news is that national strategy regarding of which party takes power are fully united of Turkey its seat amongst G.7 and becoming a rival to muslims as compass instead of al-sacuud. Daafun your line questioning is wrong, As if the "west" is the "it", Its post colonial sxb. What does the EU and the west have beside broken familiies and a bloody monstrous history murdering millions and stealing their wealth. A hindu famous write wrote, Before the west came to us we had 10 times the BNP, after they left we had nothing. He is a famous academic. The west is in decline, even the EU is in decline. A new order is coming, hopefully one with the half moon.
  4. Comparing ethnic politics to the clan politics of Somalia is not a good example duudfan. Remember that it was a united oromo front with pre-planned qeero youth that made ethiopias post meles TPLF rigid and being toppled. The TPLF, the hyeanas were thinking that if they choose Cabey Amxaaro /Abey Ahmed no blodshed will occur and buisness will be as usall. When Abey came to power he saw the dire economical coffins of the state. They had been looted by tigrayans and Ethiopia could not even pay the intrest on the loans that Meles and post Meles had taken. Why do you think Abey Ahmed sold Ethiopias mobile network and started a campaign to sell of state assets. The saaxirka of Eritrea who even managed to manipulate Farmaajo, Cafwerki had a deep seated grudge against the TPLF and convinced that with combined eritrean troops they would finish of the TPLF 4-5 months. While Cafwerkis eritrean troops indeed secured victory and fine brandy was the daily for cafwerki he met up with the american embassy and they told him that they would reinstate the sanctions and this time it would be harsh iran like sanctions. Cafwerki who has no cash and dollars with drew. The tplf rebels managed in 4 months to take tigray and are able to cut the supply route from jabuuti, We are talking about diffirent people who have nothing, nada in common. Even the oromos, those who originate from haraghe, bale have more in common with Somalis then the agroculture coptic orthodox oromos. Che is correct that dissmissing the TPLF and OLF is overstating the national army of Ethiopia. It was routed and compleyely crushed. Why would oromo, cafar, somali kilil forces die for the amhara state, Galbeedi, oromada sida hore maahan, Just che said, the war in Xamar did not start in the blue,l During the last days of Barre he only controlled Mogadishul If Abey would have used the oromo nationlism He could have one the heart of the oromos. But saying in nationak TV -"Ethiopia tikdem" a chant from tjhe Mengistu amhara-centric rule only cemented the vuew that Abey qikidtuuz< w
  5. I have the to say the impasse and the lack of action from cagjr is not something that suprised me. Nearly 35 yearsof SNM, USC, SANU (not armed,) SSF, every clan with acronym disguise of "S" for somali have destroyed the pan-somali spirit or weakended to a point that Cagjar and many Somalis, even ministers in Somalia have inferiority complex to the highlanders xabashida. 100 years ago the spirit of a Soomali was according to a historical somali source a sound one with no inferiority complex. Indeed it was the xabashida landlocked who were on the run who even dressed as muslims. Isolated as they were. The somali spirit have been told by the late mass murderor and colonial general fascist Grazianil, Once near afgooye he was passing by was . He passed through a daughter of a famous religous somali leader. She was a sweet tea made of caano.geel seller and she to inherited sacred law. Graziani had through his somali "askaris" gotten a taste for the somali tea. Back then the mugs were made by wooden mugs. When Graziani orderd his tea and finished it he saw the woman taking the cup and then throwing it away. Amazed he asked a local somali why she would she do that The somali askari said in a whispering way, anxiously "she views you as a gaal, and this was the first time he had seen a white gaal and she views you as naajis" (I dont know the best term for this term in the sacred law. Shocked graziani orderd his soldiers to tear down her small tea shop and went into the campaign of conquering Ethiopia in 1936. The woman was Ruqiya ine Shaykh Axmed Xaaji Mahdi (qs). Such was the mindset of Somalis. Returning the conflict, the west neither has time nor the will to save its sacred anicent "abyssinia" that Menelik forged by chopping of the hands of muslim oromos and killing somalis. and afars and every lowlanders. The inferiority complex or the neo pax-exthiopiana during 200-2014. with famous yellow sofa is over. Pres Cabdullahi would came and be forced to pledge his alliance, the SNM aka Somaliland leaders come the next weak to pledge their alliance in the same yellow TPLF sofa. Pictures would be taken with weyane a hyeana that comes from a non-blessed countrey that even lacks a river, a desert, a place where the norm is to eat injera with hot berbera souce for breakfeast, hot berbera suace with injenera with hot souce, A cursed place making instructions. I fully agree with Che that what every actión Abey does he loses. He lost when he refused to use the oromo card that actually brought him to the power. He lost it when another lunatic and opressor of the faith Cafwerki played his mind and lured him to launch a war, 4 months into a war and once the whiskey and the fine brandey had run out from Cafwerki and sounds of Americans sanctions if he did not withdraw, he made the sound and logical choice to with draw. 3 months later Mekelle was re taken and now the the rebels are at the gates. The americans are confused. The TPLF will not listen to USA, indeed USA did not come to their rescue when they needed it. They will throw all their manpower and love texting to the oromos to take finn finne. The best scenario for cagjar is to find Addis abbeba divided between feuding ethnicities. Just as kabul became once the soviets withdrew. The TPLF has clearly said that once they find a military solution they will have international conferance and that conferance will the mark the end of Meneliks ethiopia. Somalis should prepare for a strong military border with a secular millions of armed oromos. Cagjar should adress his people dressed in military fatigue just as the Afar leaders did when they refused to the be ockupied by the TPLF. He should mobilise all somalis using the ethnic card in order to fortify the non-demarcated borders between oromos and somalis and afars. Lack action, and lack of communication to his own people regarding his thoughts shows the inferiority complex. I dont know what else to call it.
  6. Che nailed it good. Galbeedi, just as Che said times have changed and during the 30 years of TPLF the main thing that oromos benifited from was de-colonisation from the amhara-centric Ethiopia. Just look at the names "Jaale Maarso" . If the tplf have indeed as they claim captured Dessie they captured the jugular vein of Ethiopia, meaning that they could stop djabouti-Addis high way. They tried through the afars and failed but lazy amhara do not want to fight. Just as you said, Abey is now freely armed civilans, the golden rule of war is creating ethnic militias and arming them to the teeth and sending to the front without shoes that clear indication that the whole front has collapsed. The TPLF will never be able to rule Ethiopia as it did before. The armed qeeros who have massivly joined OLF-W and are aware of jawar and lemma will not allow them rule. As for the somalis, cagjar was busy making his holy ziyara to Meneliks grave and praising. I mean it, 1 year ago He went invited to Bahri Dahr universaty and became the first somali to praise Menelik to the delight of Amhara public.
  7. ETHIOPIA--, A NATION IN CRISIS: II REBEL AT THE GATES OF ADDIS ABEBA 1 NOVEMBER 2021. A POLITCAL ANALYSIS. Its monday and I have the day off. While making coffe my habbit or addiction could not be tamed. While drinking my coffe the usall habit began, beginning with aljazeera and then local news and ofcourse the reuters and read the news that oromo fighters had caputed the critical highway t4 and are now 54 km from capital and in another twist of evens the TPLF are now capturing more amhara region. While the whole framwork news is biased and post-colonial in nature (talking about climate summit) and ignoring the huge developments in Ethiopia I felt obliged by fellow scholars and friends to finally write PART II ON THE DISSOLUTION OF ETHIOPA. BACKGROUND Ethiopia comromises of 5 main ethnic group, Amhara, Tigrayans, Oromo, Somalis and Afars. Ethiopia is an ancient christian and muslim nation. Indeed it was one of the first empires Aksum to accept Christianity and Islam came to ethipia before it advanced to Medina. A POSSIBLE DISSOLUTION OR A FAILED STATE IS NOW ON TIME TABLE. 6 or 7 years ago a during might of the Tigrayan regime I wrote calculated analysis based my knowlidge sociological aspects of Ethiopia was done by me. I dared to say that Ethiopia with its current etnic-federal constitutution would eventually lead to the downfall of the state. I received a lot of criticism, mainly from my ehhiopians friends who saw me as Somali irredentist wishing decline for them. They pointed the BNP growth of Ethiopia and with a smile said do not throw stones if your house own house is made of glass. My fellow Somalis also accused me of day dreaming, Indeed 30 years of civil strive had made the spirit of pan-somalism almost dead. Only one Somali scholar supported me in the live forum while 29 others rejected my ideas as youngsters wishes and far from reality. Ethiopia and vicious monstorus religious extremist Haile Selassie, who openly said in BBC in 1951 in a interview that they had no "muslims in Ethipia" while half of population is muslim. ' At that time Ethiopia was an Empire based on the amhara ethnicity and upon the orthodox chuch. The colonial empires gave parts of somali populated lands and Eritrea as "gift" to the monster Haile Selassie. The decline came when Mengistu, a fervent and devout communist abolished the religo-amhara based empire and declared a communist state where everyone would be equall. The orthodox church had no more powerr and ethnicity became a central issue. But even Mengistu failed to adress "question of nationalities and ethnicity". Mengistu knew if he opended that pandora box the writing on the wall would be DISSOLUTION. The national language continued to be amharic despite amharas only comprimising 20 perscent and oromos 30% A distant relative of mine by marriage who hails from the somali region of Ethiopia and who is now in his 80-ties told that they did not feel ethiopian during the 60-ties and all schools were taught in amharic. If someone wanted to make a career he had to take an amhara name. Assimilation was the way. He said we muslims in the east rejected this and those in the north Eritrean did the same. Mengistus and his refusal to adress this issue plummeted the nation into civil war based upon ethnicity. During the height of the war, TPLF, AFL, OLF , WSLF (ONLF) all the most importantly EPLF (Eritrean liberation front operated by scenes and by the late 80-ties Mengistus Amhara dominated army controlled only the cities). Mengistu was loosing the war in the north and the supply route from the red sea in Eritrea was main supply route to the nation. When communism was fading away and Moscow and cubans did not have time or the will or the strength to send weapons to Mengistu all the rebels united under the name EPRDF. The Eritreans with 1igrayans mounted and offensive and in that offensive named "the battle of afabet" the fate of Mengistu was sealed. His main army compomising ofcourse by Amhara officers faced the reality that 100 000 men being under seige. The tigrayans had cut the supply routes to the army from Addis and EPLF captured Massaw the port which Ethiopia relied upon. The Afars and the Somalis sucsessfully cut the last remaining supply route, the railroad track from Addis to Jabuuti. Once when that was done, the EPLF mached into capital, They then cordinated the TPLF (Tigrayan Liberations front) to uite all rebels under the name EPRDF. In a single month every non-amhara soldier deserted and the remaininh amhara soldiers went to Amhara region. Here comes the part where my Somali brothers will criticise me, While Somalias dictator knew his fate and when rebels were at the gates of Mogadishu he took the choice of arming clans supprting him, civilians, once arms are in the arms of civilians the outcome will be a failed state. Libya is anothe example. The western powers, despite of knowing and learning from their mistakes of Iraq bombed Libya and Ghaddafi flooded the public with arms to defend him. Today Libya is a failed state compromizing of militias with no political objective. Mengistu Xayle Mariam was a nationalist and he knew if armed Amharas to fight for him and making the whole war a war of ethnicity Ethiopia would be a failed state. Another aspect is that the western powers saw the ancient Christian Ethiopia as a the "civil part" of Africa and a a hidden meeting led by Jimmy carter and the EPRDF and Mengistu paved away for a peacefull power exchange. When the rebels were at the gates Mengistu orderd the police in Addis Abeba to take instructions "the fascists weyane" (weyane and galla ) hyeana is the racist slur against tigarayans galla is a slurword used against oromos. Eritrea declared inpendence We are in now 1991. Melez Zenawi the leader of the TPLF took charge and being a extreme hoxaist communist during his days of as a rebel he fashioned himself as social democrat. But he did one thing that no one, and i will say it again, NO ONE EVER HAD DONE BEFORE. With Eritrea gone, some Tigrayans wanted to dismantle the empire, Oromos wanted out, Somalis wanted out, no one execpt the Amharas who had a priveliged status wanted to keep Ethipia. Meles did an act no one had before. He tackled the issue of ethnicity and imitated the ethnic-federalism of Yoguslavia and even stipulated in the constitution of Ethiopia in article 39 that every ethnic region had the right of leave. The ethnic federalism created a renessceanse of oromo nationalism. The cushitic group of Oromos in Shewa the orthodox christian oromos promoated nationalism and retook old oromo names. After Meles Zenawi died the oromo rised up and the TPLF who were more afrad ffrom the amhara gave away to a security agent from the oromo group, Abey Ahmed. He made peace with Eritrea, shocking the TPLF and released all political prisoners, He received a nobel peace price but according to the OLA under same time time he he was freeing prisoners he was arresting Jawar Ahmed a fellow oromo natonalist and lemma megersa another fellow oromo nationalist. He cracked down on those who wanted to keep the ethnic frederalism. He made a state blockade against the Tigrayan region. With starvation the TPLF launched an attack thus the the war began. WHAT HAPPENING NOW? WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING? While the US is on decline and oil has now become a non strategic goal the horn of africa with the read sea has now become a second thing. Alternative energy sources as fisher oil, solar etc and rise of China have made the sea China more important. Abey Ahmed wants to abolish the the ethnic-federalism and impose a central state. aka an amhara state. centered state. The war took a dramatic scene when the battle hardened TPLF regrouped the took Mekelle and the military offensive became more dangerous when an ofshoot of Oromo liberation front-West aounced an alliance. Addis Abeba lies deep in oromo lands. Abey Ahmed lost his support when he tried to crush the oromo seperatists. It was to late. Oromo seperatists had infiltrated the state and became the local polceman, military etc The news that OLF-W are now within 53 km from Addis Abeba is very much disturbing. Africa needs peace. Its impertative for Abey Ahmed to realise that a peacefull dissulution and referefendum is needed to correct historical in justice. If Eritrea could leave the empire why should not Oromiya or Somali region (Ogaden region) Afar region? POSSIBLE INTERVENTIONS. With dramatic news of rebels being in 53 km in the vicinity of the capital Addis Abeba and cordinating the offensive with the TPLF, Abey Ahmed will be forced to negotiate a settlement and key demand from the TPLF. The tigrayans and oromos will not make the same mistake that Meles made for them. This time the settlement will include calls for referendum of an E-xit. Either you remain or indpendence.
  8. Che, As I said before, the oromos are now those who can either make peacefull dissulution of the amxaara empire that the blood thirsty religous extremist Menelik created. But with all the good PR-pictures above and all the hum-bug of the OLF they have still not been able to capture a single regional capital. The OLF had a strong presence among the Boran oromos in moyaale and nageele, the bordear areas with kenya, Still no military activity have been reported in that area They have not been able capture the regional capital city of boran oromos nagele. Even the hard-core seperatists, those who actually refused to be assimilated, the hararge oromos, those who support Jawar,. Its splinter group from the OLF , the Islamic liberation front of Oromiya founded by the late Sheekh Cabdulkarim Ibraahim Xaamid Alle ha u naxariisto (I think he died a couple of years ago), a scholar and a fighter trained in the mogadishu in the 70-ties and have been unable to conduct any major military activites, Hararge and cut of the infamous A10 highway to Addis Abeba. Their is no national Ethiopian army, indeed all tigrayan colonels and officers were purged. What remains are loyal amhara or loyal neftegna oromos (oromo la amxaareeyay) that are loyal to the abyssinian caste system and lordship. Mainly a amhara centric state. If those pictures are true and OLF-W are making rapid progress in Shew a it would have been noticed by the media. Any activity in Shewa would have noticed if they would have cut away the main high way from Oromiya west to Addis. Their are 4 main high ways the lead to the capital and all of these highways are in Oromiya and they have not been able to make a single move. Either the Oromos are throwing their support for the neftegna Oromo of Caabey-Amxaaro or they are simply not cordinated and efficent in war as the TPLF. Take for a example jimma, they have not even been able to capture that city despite that all soldiers belonging to the former regime ran off and qeero youth replaced them as policemen. According to an Oromo friend of mine who I called in order get my regular dose on whats actyally happening from an oromo perspective. Everyone is armed and their is no law and order, and that by all definition is a civil war. The vast arms depots and have been plundered and the TPLF intentional distrbution of vast tones of weapons to the south have made the whole south a no mans land, yet we hear no OLF-W claim of capturing a regional province capital. Those who can spell the end for dying amxara empire are the shewan oromos of OLF-W. The only thing that they need to do is cut these 4 main roads that lead in to Addis Abeba. Attacking lorry tracks by night in combat groups by 10 along the road using anti-tank guided missiles or more simple weapons is all that it takes to freeze Addis Abeba and take the war to the capital. Yet they are unable to do this. Disrupting supply routes in a war is a key condition for victory and thats how the TPLF took the whole world by suprise when they cut of Mekelle from Addis Abeba and every soldier ran off. Amxaaro will never fight. The only time they fought was 2 times, during the oromo migrations and during the war of Axmed Gurey. They lost both times. I dont know, but we need to understand the oromo psyche, war maxay rabaan? Siiba oromoda gaalada eh ee galbeedka? Mey dagaalaman? Thats a political question that I cant answer, maybe you or galbeedi have more info. What the end game with the oromos and why on earth are they supporting a Caabey Amxaaro using a oromo mask while directing amxaaro policies? Kiina aaway? Intuu dadka diyaarin lahaay kulahaa ciidamo soomali aan u diraa in ey difaacan amxaaro. No offence , But our dear friends Abtigiis mental health needs to be checked as he and farmaajo has entered in history as Somali leaders sending somali lads dying for an amxaaro centric Itoobiya. Abtigiis is a Somali nationalist, that is undeniable but his personal vendetta against the TPLF should not dictate the greater good for soomalida. Caabey Amxaaro is a magician by his wods, giving a few seats to Somalis "as if they have been included" does not erase the 100 years of oppression since 1884. Every weak Ethiopian ruler used to keep his enemies close, Xayle Selassie while he was weak had a eritrean PM. Once he had crushed all political opponents he forced eretiteriyaa into his amxaro centric world. Caabey Amxaaro did the same, Lemma, Jawar, everyone, was kept close untill he had his amxaaro backing. He then stabbed them in the back. Thats a warning to Abtigiis.
  9. Galbeedi is completely true what he says about who defeated mengistu, the best well trained army in Africa. The EPLF succsesfully defeated 10 Ethiopian offensives and when Communism collapsed so did the aid for the Ethiopian army. It was the EPLF that sent thousands of its soldiers to cut the vital supply roads addis to Massawa. They did so and in 1990 over 100 000 amhara soldiers were cut off. Once the supplies had ran out every general fled and so did the soldiers. The whole front collapsed and the EPLF captured Massawa and then Asmara. That had a shocking knocking of event and what many do not know is that the EPLF sent further thousands of soldiers to the TPLF to capture Addis abeba. The gaalada saved Ethiopia by the deal in the UK. The TPLF today are landlocked and its hard to replay the scenario of the 80-ties. Galbeedi what you do not have in your equation is that the TPLF masterminded the flooding of vast amounds of weapons into Ethiopia. According to a source of mine the tons of weapons the TPLF flooded freely into Ethiopia even made the weapons dealers in Mogadishu bankrupt. A brand new chinese made kalash for 50 dollars?. Why did they do that? They wanted to incite the the oromos, the somalis. The oromos are know those who can determine of Ethiopia survives or dies. All police stations in Oromiya have been taken over by the OLF and the OLF have now become lawfull regional army, a far cry from its rougue terrorist label. If the oromos see the writing on the wall and realise that Abey is nothing then a Amhara using a oromo mask that could spell the end and be the victory of Ethiopia. The alliance between the OLF-W and TPLF was a gamechanger. Even though the OLF do not want admit it and keep caling OLF-W as splinter group many signs point to that they want eat with both hands. As for us, Soomaalida need a take step back and realize that their is no diffirence between amxaaro and tigrayans, they are both abyssinians and they have allways in history wrestled control with each other. The dissolvement of an Empire built upon blood of Somalis, and cutting of the breats of muslim oromo women and forcing millions of jeberti muslims in Tigray to convert to Christianity is an Empire that needs to dissolve. A peacefull disolvement would be the perfect scenario for a peacefull horn of Africa. Lets see if the oromos are wise and united. Its sad to see how somalis have degenerated so much that they sent somali lads to die for amxaaro, YAAB!
  10. The cowboys of Somaliam now with a a suufi suits have suddenly become a new deviant form of al-shabaab. A wadaad with ak-47? Yaab! Wat bax dheh!
  11. Using drone attacks, killing civilians and then compensating the families with amound of a couple of goats. No wonder the taliban humiliated the UK and USA. This begs the question, how many innocent Somalis have been killed by US-drones with inpunity. Afghanistan war: UK's lowest payout for civilian death was £104.17 WWW.BBC.COM The compensation payment is one of hundreds by the Ministry of Defence, revealed for the first time.
  12. War corrupts you, even honest hearts can be stained by the dirty politics of Somalia. Sheekh Macalaim Maxamuud and xertiisa in guriceel were busy studying islam. When al-shabaab under the leadership of Kaba-ku tukade wrestled controll of the mosques and imposed his interpertation al-shabaab style a group of xerows took upon arms, Remember the battle of wabxo? Al-shabaab launched 4 major offensives and failed everytime with heavy losses? why? The indegenous group thought they were literally fighting khwaarijta of our time, al-shabab takfiiris.. They belived they were on the right path, while enemy was on the wrong path. I am pretty sure that government forces would have laid down their arms and run away but these xerow students in 2008-2009 did not. In Gedo Sheekh Xasan Qoryooley armed themselves and the Shaykh himself was martyred. Shaykh Maxamed Faarax was also martyred, But power corrupts you. Ahlusunna of guriceel became a pure tribal militia. Its bizarre to see him know saying "waanu tanasulnay" when he was the one advocating war against the government. Alle ha u naxariisto Sheekh Maxamed Faarax in the video, He was martyred a year later. As I said before politics corrupts you, look how a movements starts and then becomes burcad. A rouge militia that craves for power, Somalia's Sufis Fight the Shabab - The New York Times WWW.NYTIMES.COM Somalia has been plagued by civil war between rival clans for almost 20 years. Now, religious groups are killing each other over competing visions of Islam.
  13. Your father Alle ha u naxariisto was a wadani and a man of integrity and a beloved person to our family and all somalis. He had hindsights and always to right moral just decision. He was also a religious man. My father and your father were in the same lot and lost with coup in 69. God had not decreed that I would exist but my mother told me how the 2 seats of mogadishu was highly contested in the election before the coup. When my father and the late avokaate Jimcaale won , your father came as usually with congrats to my father. Africans voting and congratulating each other. 30 years has gone, look at the picture above. MMA and Galbeedi,. My late grandmother who hails from cadale (alle ha u naxariisto) used to say when she saw bizarre things "Maandhow, nin aanan yaabin ayaa yaabay, yaaa huuu" Imagine if D-prime minister would have done this. Yaab!
  14. It doesnt look good, but mark my words. Gaalada will probably send a former american president and force them to the negotiating table just as 1991. The difference this time is the gaalada might not be interested in the unity of Ethiopia. The TPLF-OLA alliance of of need will press for all regions to free and fair elections if they wish to remain in the fedeal republic of Ethiopia or leave. Tigray will leave and will make sure that the afar leave. Those left with the name Ethiopia will be Axmarta. I hope Somalis and Abtigis are planning for this scenario. What they need now is ethnic nationalism.
  15. MMA you have a taste for history sxb, Ustaad Cismaan together with Ditoore Aweeys Maxamed Rifaaci-dabarwayne Alla ha u naxariisto. They predicted this and look at the picture. above, just as galbeedi said laahay xishoodska ma naga qaado Ditoore Maxamed Axmed Rifaaci who hailed from the non xamar-daye people had a secret meeting within the clan and heavily criticised Halgame Xaaji dheere with Gudoomiye iyo halgame Sakhawadiin the president of SYL, sakhawadiin was a direct descendant of Sheekh Uweys al-Baraawi. out of 13 members in SYC or later named SYL 6 were from the non-xamar daye people. He foretold them that even if we were all Somalis the non-urban nomadic pastoral somalis north of the rivers, from hiiran up hargeysa had a completely different culture. Raised by his maternal kin who hailed from xarardheere, he knew. He openly said that you 6 are opening the doors of shame, they will dominate and we will be in the thinlines. therefore they wanted to carve out bulge in Somalia as : Rifaaci proposed 1- Independent state 2- If not federal state with the borders of the bulge, baidoa or baraawe or muqdisho as the capital within the greater 5 somali. A week after the meeting, SYL condemned separatism and slammed them "pro-talyaani" in order weaken them and politically frame them as collaborators. The non-xamar daye people rejected as all Somalis we firm on freedom and uniting the somali people. Clan was by that time seen by the urbanite SYL-members as something backwards. Let those who are offended by this be offended. While Prof Said S Samatar spent decades on glorifying the "Sayid and his poems" and somali culture is produced with the picture of Hadraawi everywhere with Sayids poems of killing clans and stealing camels, The non-xamar daye people of of xamarweyne and xamar-daye communities who married with each other knew each other composed religious chants and love poems. In a long interview, Prof Said S Samatar, the interviewer being the awdalite Ahmed Ismail samatar (not related to said samatar) said in an interview he made before his death if he thought there were somalis whom he could define as a culture/civilisation that everyone could me morphed into, just like the amhara. He explicitly said "those urbanite non xamar daye ppl.".
  16. A Senior official within the somali government that sometimes talks to me told me that the a joint agreement signed by Somalia and Turkey was that Turkey would help state the with mass-produced solar cells in a great magnitude. Somalia would own 51% while the Turks 49 %. This agreement was signed 2 year ago, As soon as the pen was written, the monopoly tried in various ways to stop the deal but failed just as Jubba airways failed. The pressure to delay the agreement was so high it reached the prime ministers desk. Amaan ama Hamaanin, he took somali stand and dismissed them. Turkish geophysicists and actuall solar cell company kalyon wanted to with this project to outdo the germean solarcells that Morocco bought and show the world that its solarcells are much better. The best way to launch your product and the whole green energy politics is showing how a poor country as Somalia can find its needs in solarcells and windfarmcells. I will not disclose the chosen the place for the security of those somalis and turks involved but think about it, while the wahaabi was using fancy arab words written by saudi shaykh who wanted to explain basic economy in the frame work of the islamic jurisprudence, he made no mention of monopoly. Do you guys remember the fanaan Cabdalla Cabdalla, the arab, the artist after getting tatxiil from the sacuudiga went back to his family joob. Making sambuus and a nice restaurant. The restaurang became a hit, the crowd went with Cabdallah, he was a living entertainment. The opposite restaurant owner got jelous and cabdalla was spayed with 9 bullets. Folks that is how the bizarre capitalism with monopoly works. A funny side not, You always want your mother inlaw content with you. Everyyear when some in the family would head of to mogadishu, she asked for a MIXER. After sending her 5 mixers I asked her a bit comical why do your mixers always get damaged. I have had mine for 5 years and yours dies after 3 months. We laughed. 2 months lather, one night it struck me, the Watt system in Somalia is not harmonised. The Voltage in Europe is 10 ampere or 230 volt. For those buying fancy kitchens machines watch out and buy a equalizer before you the somali ampere that nobody knows.
  17. The man behind the company Axmed Nuur jimcaale was a integral part of the first wave of saudi financed preacher and entered the venture of "xawaalad". The city in Scandinavia I lived in was during the 90-ties the town where all of these "wahabist" clique would meet and make an annual event called "mutamarka islaamiga". When civil war was raging and blood was being spilled in Somalia I remember those annual meetings were the place to be. It was the only common place that somalis of 4.5 could come actually chat with each other with compassion and no clan grudges. Everyone remembers the defunct Al-barakaat. Thousands of Somalis lost their money but they were given the sham promise that they would regain the money they had in the bank once the sanctions were lifted. Once the sanctions were lifted the man behind the Hormuud, a man who liked to potray himself as a dedicated salafist preacher took the money. A relative of mine had 15 k dollars and after sham messages of various somali tv channels that they could collect the money that was frozen by the US. He did so and contacted the local man . The man said that the US had taken "intrest" in holding the money" during the days of the sanctions. My relative answered banks usally give intrest to those who actually owns the monet and vica verse. He went away. He did not receive his lost money. The messages on Universal tv was sham to protect the wahabist salafist religious face. Had he not sent those messages we Somalis would openely have called him "tuuga". Anyways during the chaos of the 90-ties and early 2000 he was shrewd and foresaw that Somalis with a huge diaspora needed telecommunications. He collected the former state employeers of pre 1991 and installed technocrats from various clans. The good thing about him he did not sorround himself with geel-jire cousins who could not read as some other Somalis usally make when they venture into buisness. Axmed nuur was instead pragmatic and if you had the degree and the know how, or the contacts he would hire you. He installed modern mobil phone antennas. This is just the beginning. With no central bank, and everyone being being able produce somali shilling, the economy was tied to the dollar and. He also found inspiration from Kenya where impeeza was implemented, mainly digitalized payments of kenyan shillings, He had a problem though, with millions of dollars in cash he needed a bank, a recognised bank by the IMF and all states in order to do the same in Somalia. He established ties with recognised banks of Djibouti and made salaama bank of shoot of djaboutis state bank. The "Salaama" bank that we see today is an offshoot from djibouti. I am not a communist, neither do I have a Marxist tendencies. I utterly reject the notion of communism, Marxism or communism has no objective moralism and is today preaching and promoting the morals of the left hand path (lgbtq etc etc). For those who are willing to see and dig a and reflect bit beyond the what we see and hear we as muslims understand that we are are upon the right hand path, asxaabul yamin. Thanks god communism is dead, it was rotten at the beginning when the racist Marx had his isnad and abtirsi to Iblis and now all of those who promoted it are dead. As muslims we also reject the american form of capitalism of exploitation. We consider them to be mofsadeena fil ard according to islamic thinkers as the sufi Shaykh Xassan Banna and Sayid Motaherri. Indeed the beloved ones to the prophet and those whom the eternal words of god speaks about are the muhajirin, the poor, the weak who took upon the faith despite facing grave dangers. We see today white european nations using capitalism in order to literally starve people to death with no moral objectivism. They lie, they say we believe in free trade and peace yet when the African man wants his fruits to be sold grapes fruits they impose tariffs in order protect their own "european tariffs". We strayed of the topic. But Axmed nur Jimcaale is a smart man, he does not speak on somali politics. He keeps his political views to his own. But the facts on the ground is that Axmed Nuurs budget is much larger then the FGS budget. He does not need to go to politicians, they come for him. What is going in Somalia is a evil form of capitalism, a much more corrupted devilish form then Americas. The traders do not pay taxes, Axmed nuur Jimcaale rose from the ashes from the money he got from Al-barakaat, is he willing to pay taxes? Does it lie in his interest to see a strong federal government that takes 10% income on every digital transfer of money that occurs in Somalia? I do not think so. For those who do not believe in him regarding his salafist preaching during 97 see below. Many years has gone. Notice that he does not in anyway talk about taxes during his preaching on "islamic economy".
  18. Galbeedi, Gartay and agreed But you I think that you have not been updated with facts on the grounds that have virtually changed in a minute. The tide and the clock is on Caabey-Amxaaro and the likes of neftegnas (armed assimilated amhara oriented oromo, or simply amhara). The read Sea front, and afar group that advocated pan-afarism and who were created by the TPLF and to conduct an insurgency in Assab and denkalia-saho lands of Eritrea are now in direkt talks with the TPLF. I dont you remeber when in 1978 Suldan Cali Mireh of the afars completely destroyed the supplyroute for the Derg. During those times, The WSLF distributed arms and 0dymamites and they simply destroyed the railtrack evert 10 mile (100)- See the news my friiend, the railtrack built china, and chinese workers have been destroyed, the regime in Addis having diffuculties in using the Djabouti-Adddis rail way. We tend to think the cafars as a united ethnic group but their are those who dedicated to pan-afarism as we adhere to pan-somalism. The current regional president of the cafarta is a puppet, enelected just like Abtigis. He and the somali regional leaders are "colonial governors" and the damning bittre truth to this is while Abyssinia, Amhara region and Shew, no Oromiya were voting, the colonized lowlands and muslim majority somali region and cafarta region were exkluded? why? A well known Somali journalist said what is it so diffirent from Cabdi Iley and Abtigis if they are both chosen as a colonial adminstrator when we as somalis in soomaligalbeed can not even conduct an election. Abey Ahmed lost the war when Mekelle was taken, 90 %of Ethiopias hardware was in Mekelle under the the controll of TPLF, They hid thousands of tow missiles. Noteside here, Remeber when the Syrian rebels united under a big umbrella 2015 and Saudi-qatari export of tow-missiles caused Idlib to fall and the syrians rebels were at the gates of Lataqya,. The Regime in damascus were panicking and it was a question when they would fall, lattaqiya home ofthe alawites. Russia then intervened but the offical russian grievance was that the fight not fair becouse sophisticated american weapons were bering used. The tplf officals were made in into minced meat , during this time of supplyroad to mekelle by cut off,. A tigrayan jabarti at the mosque showed me how they managed to cut of the route. Thousands 40-a team were dotted hidden in the mountains alongst the road with tow missiles. He showed how a petrol tanker was easily destroyed. How a tanks, Techniko everything was being destroyed by these tow-missiles. When reinforcement could not come. The Somalis who hade no idea what he was doing in Mekelle together with the oromos were the first to surrender when they saw their commanders fleeing. Caabey Amxaaro thought by capturing mekelle the war would be declared a done deal. TPLF professonal lobby groups were very effective in maximasing the tragedy. Compare that to the ogaden insurrection in The latest alliance between Oromo Liberation army (military front group) for the OLF( they deny it but everyone knows it is their "informal" army, alliance between them and the TPLF was devastating for Cabeey Ahmed . The OLF have managed to something that the TPLF can not do. They themselves cut the supply route from amhara region and addis. The Bahridahr road. Caabey Axmed failed when he did not submit to the oromo qeero masses. So galbeedi, facts on the ground, are not good for Cabeey. if the OLA gaines huge these tow missilesm its game ovwer. The Amhara region is now freely without a cost armying amhara civilians, free kalashnikovs, this policy have been caused sicir barar in Bakaaraha supermarket. In conclusion. Caabey Axmed, weather he likes it or not, The withdrawal of eritrean troops and the continuing losses and the destruction of the railroad is sending shockwaves to amhara dominated Addis abeba. Empty shelves are in the shops. 1- The TPLF is asking for ceasefire and talks via third party, the us,, they demand that all the kilil to join "the ethippian peace-talks" push for article 39, If cabeey Ahmed says no and the cash stipped nation gets sacntions he loses. If agrees he looses and the break up of Ethiopia will be negotiated. 2- In xamar, when we see a bizarre thing we say "maandhow nin aannan yaabin ayaa yaabay" That is the bizarre reality of Soomali-galbeed, who would in a million years would think a Somali leader would praise meneleik in a conferance held in the heartlands of Amhara, Bahridahr. Then when a civil war breaks out sends Soomali maxamed to die for amxaaro,. Bizarre! But the colonial stooge has to prove withe blood of somali youngsters that is loyal to caabey amxaaro or Abey neftegna.
  19. MMA Those who ockupied the water and the tried to "sell" the water, ockupied the costal lands of xamarwayne, marka, baraawe have not changed. Traditions do not change. One thing guidlines Baidoa-xamarwayne, even warsheekh to bareewe. The word is "Xishood". It means you see the bigger picture and avoid becoming the trangessor. Those from from mudug and above up to Hargeysaa do not know the culture of xishood in the means of being peacefull. While southerners were composing religious poems and chants. People from mudug and above, upp to hargeysaa and carta were 100 years ago they were boasting and bragging in poems about killing their cousins and stealing camels from each other. I will write a historical post in another thread but during the 1940-50 a group of intellektuells consisting of coastal somalis -baidoa Somalis who made a foresight that this would have happen and wanted a federal or a seperate state. The SYL with pan-somalism saw them as a bigger political threat and labeled them as "pro-talyaani" group. In order discredit them. Indeed, what they they foresaw happened, it happened in a massive scale
  20. Be grateull for Mosuveni and firm policy of Pan-Africanism. The Taleban are not Al-shabaab. They no not even share the same creed. Al-shabaab out of courtesy (my enemyis enemy is my friend) are witholding their ideological belifs. Taleban are maturidi in creed, hanafi in fiq and naqshbandi in sufi tariiqa. The closest ideological friends to the taleban would be traditional non wahabi somali sunni somalis. They took arms (xerta macalin nuur siyaad) and those in Guriceel when al-shabaab adopted the policy of forcing the salafi or wahaiyya creed upon them. Galbeedi, the wahhabiyya movement are also divided. Al-shabaab chose salafi jihadism and it would be considerd a cult that belives in a endless global war against gaalo. And that my friend is the problem. Al-shabaab does not even have a clear political ideas for future Somalia while the Taleban had. Al-shabaab rejected somali nationalism by aligning themselves to an arab that has never set his foot in Somalia. Without Musoveni, like it or not, They would be in control of the capital and Somalia would be cut of from the world.. The way to crush Al-shabaab is by uniting the government and true to his words, Somali intra clan rivalaries is political aids. When Farmajo came to power by the popular vote, non D-people in mogadishu celebrated his presidency, he could have taken the role of being the ceremonial president that puts pressure on federal states by actually giving the somali people living in this federal states the political conciousness to ask the basic needs from their "hebel land president". Whar did he do? Instead of realising how fragile Somalia was he wanted to crack every opposition to him, jawaari, gone, maamul goboleedyo, He even asked Cafwerki the dictator of 20 000 eritrean soldiers would be in joint command by the the president and Cafwerki and thus making Somalia a puppet state to Ereteriya. Be grateful for the Africans dying for keeping Mogadishu safe and falling to al-shabaab. Did you expect turks dying for the fragile somali state or arabs? Your analysis are usally fact based but this one galbeedi was bizarre
  21. Galbeedi, we live in the same city and had common friends, The man is a buisnessman and not a politician. I would with 100% say that it does not in the intrest of the somali ppl to see rooble as a prime minister. A man who made the bizarre mistake of de-ligitimizing the state securiity apparatus by trusting Al-shabaabs denial of their brutal girl who was a soldier in the armed forces of NISA. By hinting at al.shabaabs denial as an argument and firing fahad yaasin he has demoralised thousands of soldiers.? The blame lies with farmaajo. While he could have picked a veteran politician he picked a person whom he thought would be a nacam-yeel.. The so called opposition led by the man from guri-ceel used words in the media as "farmaajos nisa, farmaajos regime", Has he forgotten that Al-shabaab are the gates of mogadishu? Who lost and who is the wion? Al-shabaab gained legitamacy, the state instutution and NISA became defunct by this bizarre move by the pm. Who is to blame? Farmaajo. A man who stubbornly refused to follow IC road map, making the UN official non-grata, The IC- punished farmaajo by witholdning money for three months, it took him only three months waje up and aknowlidge that Somalia is fragile state and that without Amisom tanks al-sahbaab or clans would have overun the government!
  22. The poor girl worked for NISA and was brutally killed and murdered by Al-shabaab. What is highly bizarre is how the prime minister took al-shabaabs denial of her murder as an argument, as if al-shabaab a brutal terror organisation has the legitamacy to dictate what is true or false. What ever the truth is that Farmaajo failed, he was the one who appointed rooble, a man who in Stockholm used to engage with somalis in tea houses. As we have common friends he was a man interested in bushiness and graduatung from the royal academy of Stockholms technical University. He was not a man into a politics. Farmaajo took an non-experienced man to the job and wished him to be a "nacam-yeel". If Farmaajo would have picked a person informed in politics he would have not have taken a man who made bizarre political moves. Who gains in all of this? Who actually gained in this political mess and who loses? Al..shabaab gained legitamacy, Instead of somali masses blaming them we see them blaming the government, Who lost legitamacy? NISA, a state instutution established for somalis for securing somalias security and fighting the terror organisation. Whats worse was watching the so called "opposition" using this tragic murder by uttering words like "farmaajos nisa". By a instant second by using that phrase they demoralised the security forces. BTW a side.joke that is true, when events were rapidly happening in afganistan Rooble summoned the cabinet and as alwats the theater was on. He asked how ready the armed forces were, wasiirka amniga talked a lot and praised and made a picture as Somali forces pre 1991 collapse. The minister of water /non existent portfolio cracked a joke and said "wa ceelasha biya iyo afgooye baaburka kuma tegi karno , amniga aa sheegeysid maxaa waaye". The whole cabinet laughed but the picture soon become sombre.
  23. Galbeedi, Your very much correct in your analysis regarding the national army and how al-shabaab nowdays could be considerd as a crime syndicate with close ties to business elite. What I think you underestimate is that Southern Somalia is now 50 percent wahabist and 50 traditional shafite muslims. Its much more worse in the diaspora, all major religous centres are run by small organized group from the days of itixaad, Who can deny the ties of digital movike money transfer company and salaama bank run by the inner circle 2 clerics, one who said eating wolves and hyeanas was xalaal and one who openely said he saw with own eyes a London clinic 300 girls from age 13-16 with aids. i certain Somali journalist tried find the truth in these bold statements, if they are true then we need to talk about STI. The cleric refused to publically make a statement. Even if a coin has two diffirent shaped shades is the same coin. During the the late 80-ties and early 90 ties gates of wahabiyya was flooded with financial aid. Do nor fooled. The sleeoer cells are those who truly fell in align with books of fatxul.majid and how Muhammed Binu Abdul-wahab justified killing and robbing by making takfir and fighting the ottoman turks. The so called scholars in Puntland embraced these ideas and the north and north eastern have always lacked religious learning, It is not accident that all major historical famous Somali scholars were from the south, They had the resources to make settlements. Zeylaci, Uweys Barawi Qasim al Barawi, Shaykh Suufi, Shaykh Abiikar mixdaar, Sheekh Cali maye, Sheekh , Sheekh Axmed Xaaji Mahdi, Sheekh muxyadiin celi, Sheekh Abaa gadeem qadasallaahu sirruhum wa nafcalla bihim were all from the south. The north do not have the subac-soon, PL and SL has completely been overun but the mentioned dariiqyo, qaadariya with its ofshoots zeylaciyo and uweysia and the idrisiya aka axmadiya Sheekh Cali maye and Saalixiya have made a combat. Southerners have also learned the mistake. The tradutionalists have made a cone back with youtubechannels Why do you think Umul was welcomed in thousands and when the wolf eater said he would come to Mogadishu, traditionalists demanded that he public ally issues and apology for opening the doors of mass takfir. The diaspora is completely dominated by them, in their colonial minds they even refused to teach somali kids SheekH Yuusuf al Kowyneyns genios somali-sised arabic teaching method for writing and reading. Salafism is today in crisis when its birthplace, its bastion of financial hub openly acknowledged that their form of Islam made havoc in Muslim countries. When MBS said "we made a mistake" WAMY the international organisation for spreading salafism received zero money. With no salary the roof and building they created in Somalia is cracking, The canadian fellow, Shaykh Kishki is the modern sufi qadariya who indeed exposed these people.
  24. Do you guys remember Sergey Buubka, the the russian olympian who allways jumped high, and even jumped higher during the 80-ties. I remember a year ago seeing a facebook video upon a few Turkish agronomists teaching Somalis how to plant tomatoes. Everyone was clapping and were joyfull! The Turks are here! Finally they have taught us how to put a seed in the in the ground and water it. during the 80-ties before the collapse and Somali when Somalis elite who were erratic and their ideology jumped of the communist train 78, God bless them. We dont need shuuciyad. But the old man turned to Johnsson. An american white guy was teaching somalis in jowhar while secretly spreading christianity who to plant tomatoes! Everyone was jofull! and happy. Here comes our boy Sergei Booba in the picture if your old enough to remember him. When the old man embracing a racist jewish guys teachings called Marxism, and icing on the cake called leninism or kufr Sergey Buubkas folks came all the way from Siberia and taught how to put a seed in the ground and let it grow. Before that our fore fathers fought viciously so that the murderor Graziani and his italian criminal monsters would not force our people to teach us their ways. Alle ha u naxariistio SYL fought for somalis to stand on their own feet. I am happy that the kemalist narrative in Turkey has been destroyed. I dont know if you guys know but even Turkey is know re-inventing the Turkish history after how the kemalists cleansed those who defended the tomb of our belobed Abu Ayoub Ansari and the seat of the declining caliphate Istaanbul. 40% of the martys in the famous battle of Canakkle or Galipoli where the british and the french were beaten where non turks. Kurds from mosul, sudanese, eritreans, and even a somali heeded the call from the caliph to defend instanbul. Unfortunately Ottomans were during that time poisoned. While the millet system based upon religion kept the ethnic card and made it non-relevant the young lads swallowed the european poison of nationalism. Mustafa Kemal, a man who I dislike but somalis say "gaalka gartiisa sii" saved Turkey from colonialism and defended istanbul. But he also erased those 40% of the martyrs of their name. Erdogan recently payed 5 million dollars to 5000 sudanese families from kassala who sent their sons to defend Istanbul. They made a new movie where the ottoman empire and its boundaries are defined, Somalia is included. The movie starts with Turkish mother saying farwell after receiving a letter that the son is needed, the same thing happens to Ahmed the african, and to Indian. The film even included and arab family and a kurdish family 7 lads from different ethnic groups joining a company and defending Istanbul. That movie became a best seller in 2016 and crushed the kemalist narrative. The movie ends with with a statement saying 40% of those who died came from the corners of the Ottoman lands to defend their faith and countrey. For more then 80 years the kemalists pushed the narrative of the Arab backstabbing but Erdogan revealed the facts and vast majority of the Arab people stood behind the ottomans until the end. The Movie also became a most watched movie in Turkey but one man was missing and was not made a hero- Guess who? Mustafa Kemal. Why am I telling this? Ottomans are not new to Somalia? Who aided the Somali Imaam Axmed Gurrey who crushed the Abyssinian Empire and killed Vasco da Gamaz brother in the mountainous terrain of of Axum? When the Portuguese came with 2000 rifle men to aid the Abyssinian thirst for war a coast and access to the sea , Imaam Axmed Gurey sent a letter to Sultan Suleyman and asked for aid. According to Ottoman chronicles Imam Axmed gabe a stern warning that holy Muslim relics were in danger and the red sea would be in danger to be in the hand of the franks /portoguse and awdal/adal fell. The sent 5000 Janisarries, elite storm soldiers and within 4 years the Amxaro plus the the tigreega surrenderd on the condition that the grave site of the just king and one of the few king who saw the light and became a Muslim, the Axumite king najashi, Najashi mosque would be expanded and protected. Ruqayya the daughter of the prophet and 28 saxaabo are buried. Until today Imam Najashi mosque is intact and the letter of surrender of protection is in the mosque. Indeed the prophet made salatul-janaza for him when he died. Would he have not accepted the true teachings of jesus and the last prophet, jacaylkeena Mustafa would have never made that janaza upon hearing his death. I visited najashi mosquea and Sayyida Ruqayya and after that I finally made a humle ziyaaro to my murshid buried in in the semi deserts of quluunqul Shaykh Cabdiraxman Zeylaci al Qaadari. It was sad to see that the jeberti tigrean Muslims kept their religious sites well kept and the biggest Somali religious site a , the master of Sheekh Xuseen baal the oromo who made his people muslims, the man who spread Islam with his love and sainthood was shady and untidy and the journey to it was perilous. If Mostafa Omer is reading this , Please do instruct the minister of religion and awqaafta to protect important Somali religious sites. So how did we come here, from Sergey Buubka to this? Somalia wil allways be at the center of events. God has made the Somali peninsula a place a strategic worth. Realpolitik is driven by intrests and the Turks have put their cards on us. Little did they know how fragile we were. What makes sad though is how we had the great agronomists who are now living on wellfair in a western country, well educated in italy, russia and USA. My message is that NO ONE, no TURK, no ARAB can change the the narrative about Somalia except Somalis themselves. Just as the turks isolated themselves in 1930 when they saw they could not compete on the international scale the so can somalis if they unite. They educated themselves in everykind of technology and only opened up the slowly economy with the late Torgut Özal who himself was a firm hidden anti-kemalist. Even the chinese did the same things, They isolated themselves, taught their people the hard way and only opened up the economy when they could compete on the world scale. Indeed compete they did. They did so in a few years that the whites of America, out of work and high on pharmaceutical drugs blamed chinese when american capitalism was not benefiting Americans. In conclusion, Somalia whose capital is now under seige has government that is not even able to impose tariffs on US akaid in order to stimulate the farmers. Why would a Somali engage in back breaking wheat production when the EU sends " free wheat aid" when time is to harvest? The black market buys the aid and sells 1 kg for 10 dollats while Somali farmer needs to sell it minimum 30 dollar not order to make profit but to regain what he invested. 40 dollar/kg dollars would give him 10 dollars a profit. Amarya seng, the bangladeshi economist showed the world who shrewd and cruel the white gaalo are. While Somaliland was busy flirting with UAE no one in Somaliland have ever made a study about self sustainment. Obsession with political recognition made them so desperate that they signed a semi-colonial dusty cruel Emirati arabs who do not want to see a thriving Somaliland. The south is not much more better. While capital is under seige we have a president who protected by Amisom tanks but likes pough and shout as if his uncle is alive. Attending meetings with the killer of muslims in Eritrea instead of taking a plane to Kismayo and talking and being a cermonial president he should be, he chose to eliminate the the few institutions that Somalia needed, Jawaaris parliament was replaced with a guulwade and he was busy buying of regional leader in order to get re elected. War bax dee, My late grand mother who hails from warsheekh used to say "maandhow nin aan yaabin ayaa yaabay". Thats who to describe the despicable somali politics.
  25. I fully agree with you. Che regarding the corruption but I would say that PL and SL are bastion of Salafism in Somalia rather then southern Somalia. PL would fall as they were close to falling when the islamic courts union turned their eyes on PL by using tribes from PL. It was only the failed and miserable invasion of the TPLF that saved PL. Butin order for us to make a good analysis its imperative that we really recognise the downfall of traditional Islam and how Somalis embraced Wahabism/Salafism. Who could blame them? Pan-Somalism failed, communism failed, the state collapsed. They embraced this ideology that was first introduced to Somalia by 50-ties mainly wahabism during the 90-ties. I am amazed and dazzled how we somalis have have not seen the biggest change in the somali society. If Abyssinia is defined per say as orthodox christians as they are , Somalis were before the civil war identified as Shafite muslims with sunni qaaadariya dariiqa. We had religous centres in southern Somalia settlements where a spiritual studet from furtherst Dhagaxbuur (Soomali galbeed) would come and settle and learn for free for example in Alle ha u naxariisto Macalin Nuur Siyaads religous center or Sheekh Suufis center in Costal Xamwarwayne and settlements in baardheere for free. The semi-nomadic tribes of southern Somalia would give food to these religous centers that would within 7 years produce learned masters in linguistics /cilmul-balaagha, mantaq /logic, fiqh (shafite) and the path to cleanse your inner soul sufism (dariiqada) and ofcourse Aqiida (ashaacira). While traditional sunni islam is still dominant among southern Somalis its n a decline in PL and SL. All you see is an extreme cultish ofshoot of the rabiiciyada, nick named "timo waynta". People in those areas were even groomed mentally in a post-colonial way to view traditional islam as "being backward, shirk, etc". I do not want to make the topic a religious but when Umul wanted to visit mogadishu people openly demonstrated against him holding his religious sermons and viewed as a wolf in a sheep clothes. They said he was no different from al-shabaab. Indeed he was the one who made mass-tafkfir and legitimised the so called "jihad" against the TFG president Cabdullahu Yuusuf Alle ha u naxariisto. During a Q:A on a Somali TV-channel a wise religous somali man asked one of these religious scholars why they declared a "jihad" on President Cabdullahi Yuusuf on the premise of foreign forces being present in Somalia and then changed their mind when another president took over despite that nothing on the ground changed.. The poor old Ictisaam member had no answer and qouted random stuff and said "we see things in a new way". The questioner then said you said xxx are you ready openly to take back those statements?. The religious old man had no answer. Indeed how could he?. He was exposed for what he was, a wolf in a sheeps clothes. The canadian fellow who is a traditionalist religious scholar Shaykh Kishki exposed these people. As I said before the west is in decline, weather we like it or not Mogadishu is under a siege. According a relative of mine of who is a member of the government Farmaajo failed to follow the "international community" aka the Wests plan for the stabilisation of Somalia. Farmaajo is a master of playing on peoples emotions and made himself as victim a foreign plot but the truth is that he was a man who never understood how deeply the somali society had fractured. His nostalgia for pre 91 is where he began and he surrounded himself with advisors from his uncle who are now in their late 70!. The so called opposition Cabdi shakuur and Sheekh Shariif love to use the tribal card but they themselves can travel by car to ceelasha biyaha. They themselves are in denial. Just like how everyone in Afghanistan was in denial, with the ethnic Tajib Abdullah Abdulllah engaging in a vicious campaign in order to get something so are the somalis doing. Its a zero sum way of doing politics. Relative of mine who belongs to this salafi business elite of Mogadishu says the economical judicial parts of al-shabaab is so disciplined that if the know if you import a single Toyota car and demand a tax on it, a tax much more smaller then the governments fee. He said they mad the fee much more smaller in order to appease the business elite and turn them their side against the government. Amisom has now been in Somalia for 15 years and the signals above is that the somali government has to fight for themselves. Amisom does not conduct any military engagements. A general and a relative of mine within Somali national Army who is in his late 60-ties said to me "The goal of Amisom is not to eliminate Al-shabaab, they are only here in Mogadishu in order to stop Al-shabaab from capturing the capital". I did not take his statement to be serious but then when I came home, It mad sense. Amisom fought hard to liberate Mogadishu during Sheekh Shariifs time and then stopped. The white people established bases where apartheid rules are enforced. Only white people who feast upon conflicts and various NGOs are their. We somalis tend to follow emotions. The gang leader of Al-shabaab is probably following the events of Afghanistan very closely. If he openly disavows Al-qaeda and changes his tunes to a nationalistic one, we might the see the west engaging them. I doubt this scenario but it could happen. Would Amisom withdraw Baladwayne, Baidawa Kismaayo would fall, and Mogadishu would probably fall after a prolonged siege,
