  1. now you talking common sense. I agree with you and I should have mentioned that the people and the business community have contributed great deal. In fact they are the foundations of progress.
  2. Direct aid must encouraged, At the same time the result must be seen on the ground. If Somaliland is becoming transparent on it's finances and spending the money on the projects intended I welcome it. Also direct aid from Britain and others was there before . let me give you an example the government of Kuwait paid $10 million last year for Airport development, U.A Emirate gave this year $19 million for road development, The European Union in 2011 gave $ 28 million for water improvement, yet we see money been raised from the diaspora to build the Ceerigaabo-Burco road, the Borama-Dila road which is 18 miles is being built by the people. Not one single Hospital is built by the state in any major City. so where is this money going. During Dahir Rayaale presidency in 2005 almost $17 million was granted to built bridges and roads. Other than few improvements in the Berbera- Hargeisa road the rest gone . let us see if this direct aid is felt by the people of Somaliland for the next few years. Hawdian I am not comparing the two, Somaliland has a done a lot especially in terms of law and order, institution building and democracy, but this are millions that must be felt by the people. Remember we send $200 dollars for family of ten and it feeds them well.
  3. To be fair Mogadishu based government received hundred of Millions. During Sheekh Shariif's reign they from 130 million dollars they got to revive the state, they spent only $50,000 dollars for social services. This was during the famine of 2011. Can you imagine people were starving to death and they spent $13 million dollars for the office of the president alone.Indeed those guys broke the record one it comes looting the public purse. The good thing is at least we are debating misdeeds,For most Somalis government is a tool to enrich and control the public discourse. from Somaliland,to Puntland and Mogadishu one thing is for sure: there is a bag of money sitting right their at palace to be dispensed at will.They do not need to go through Government ministries to legitimize their expenses.We are a long way from being accountable.
  4. If Somaliland does some thing good , they will be commended, like holding elections and improving local security, but it will never reach it's potential if people like Buurahadeer keep repeating the party line and denying facts on the ground. It is the interest of everyone including Somaliland to enhance local wealth generation. I went to Somaliland in 2011 and almost every sector of the government that is functioning or has some activity is involved by international NGOs's. From the health care to welfare: education, and agriculture:, police equipment,courts and justice. Almost all government miniseries are coupled with UNDP and others. There are over 119 NGo's in Hargeisa alone. Aid from World Bank, European Union, Britain, Denmark,Sweden, Gulf Arabs and many others were over 100 million Dollars for the last two years. I haven't seen them build 10 km road, Hospital or essential service like water wells for outlying districts.When people say Somaliland does not get aid from outside it is a lie. , .
  5. The Future, you right it is the psyche of all Soomaali leaders, they can not lift a finger without foreign aid. Wuxuu yidhi Waxay Nabadeen, Waxa Kasii Daran Waxay Nabareen. They are waiting somebody else to build their country. They don't have any plan to raise Internal revenue within the country. Afar Sanoo khasaartay iga dheh.
  6. I think this article unveiled the so-called Eu countries who failed to give any meaningful aid to Successive Somali governments since 2010. If they do not trust ruling class, how about directly paying the salary of the army who should be replacing Aminisom. Waar wadankan waa loo soo shaqo tagay. kulahaa 500 million ayaan Unisom siinay. Hadaanay shilin siinayn why ay wax ugu yeedhinayaan. shalay oo u dambaysay Airport ka ayey inta ugu yeedheen kula kulmeen deeq bixiyeyaashu. muxuu u odhan waayey Villa Somalia iigu yeedha. Horaanu u nidhi wadankani rug caddaaa buu u baahan yahay, maalin walba, Wadaad yar oo Semi educated ah ayaa la noo keenaya. Hadii uu rabo in uu dawladiiisan iyo mustaqbalka dadka rabo in uu u gargaaro ha magacaabo Raiisul Wasaare karti leh oo reer Soomaaliland ah. Lagase filimaaayo.
  7. First the Darwiish Sayid was born in Buuhoodle Togdheer few miles from Buroa city , so he is a Somalilander by today's standard, second while his method of confronting the British colonial was radical , he waged his war of independence according to that era. In the history of Somali independence movement he is a national icon that can not be denied by history. on the issue of his statue been erected in Jigjiga that is pure Qabyaalad, and I agree with Xaaji that it is a sinister way for the Ethiopian regime, who colonized this region and still occupies today to shift the blame to the European colonials. The so called Onlf and mr. Mohamed Omar (iley) are here to loot the Somali region. The Onlf was just a tool to claim and rule by force a land shared by many Soomaalis. If they do not change their hungry character the will destroy that region just as the same way they destroyed the Somali republic.
  8. I would like to add my few senses on this issue. There are probably couple of reasons that the Jews excel in science and business. 1- The Jewish people were persecuted for centuries, especially in the western world and Russia.Education and business ingenuity were the only way to escape from poverty. Don,t look farther, even in the early twentieth century, just like blacks, Jewish were denied to be members of white Christian Clubs. They forced their way and through education broke these barriers. 2-There are probably no Jews Noble Laureates from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Spain or Portugal or many other countries were there Jewish communities live and do well. As we are all aware most of the winners come from Advanced economies in the west. The Jewish Diaspora is one of he oldest among western nations, and these western being open societies the possibilities are greater for those who strive or success. among the sixty or so Muslim countries, almost all of them were colonized, except Turkey and Iran. 90% of these countries gained their independence for the last half of the twentieth century. The western world took literally the Hadiis of the Prophet which says " one must seek knowledge from the cradle to grave" , also you need freedom to seek knowledge. The Muslim Ummah must separate it self from the backward culture of the Khaliijul Arab before it can challenge others. On the issue of Somali contribution of the world, I bet you within few decades the Somali Diaspora will produce great minds, not to the extant of the Jewish community but compared to other developing nations. We are not static nation by nature we are mobile nomads, we cannot be boxed in somebody else s narration. Moe Farrah the Somali British runner and many more will be on the spot light. Few months ago I was chatting with a guy from Zimbabwe , and he said " are you Somalis guys in exile or refugees or what? I told him that few decades ago we were singing " Ian Smith ma muuqdeen, Rodishia ma maageen hadan midig la siinin" I narrated how we took part in their liberation from White minority rule in Zimbabwe. Look at these great minds in this forum, how intelligent and reasonable they are, when they are engaged issues outside their tribal home lands. Finally, Atheists like Richard Dawking will never understand The Believing of the unseen and .faith. The foundation of hierarchy like God the Creator, Faith , Family and country were replaced by mans desires and whims by proclaiming the death of Faith. I have no intention of debating with atheist.

  10. waa sida aad sheegtay reer koonfurku waa dadqalbi wanaagsan , laakiin "elite" koodu waa dad musuq ragaadiyey. Arinta cusub ee imika soo korodhay waxa weeye dad "semi educated" ah oo laakiin xarfaan ku ah waxis daba marinta ayaa soo galay "not only the ruling class but also in the highest level of government bureaucracy. in badan ayaad SomaliaOnline wax ku qoraysay aduunkana waad soo martay ee maxaa tala ah kala shakigan sidee looga baxaa. kuwa ugu waaweyni waa kan ka dhaxeeye the "D" block iyo HAg., kan ka sii weyni waakan ka dhaxeeya beesha SNM iyo D block . xagee laga bilaaba xalka. Sidoo kale qori isu dhiibkaan beesha Muqdisho mid la daawan karo ma ahan.
  11. Somalis are democratic by nature, if the neighboring entities leave them alone, certainly they will reach some consensus. The Somali issue is whipped from the behind by undemocratic despots. Al-shabaab is from Saudi -Arabia, the most backward undemocratic country in the world. how about Ethiopia for ninety years since nineteen thirty they had only four leaders. that is almost a century. by now we all know who is who of the Somali political stake holders. Xaaji Saaxiib bahashan Soomaalinimada shalayba inagaa keenay oo u gabaynay, u heesnay o cagaha u taagnay, kow dheh, inagamana fursanaysee maxaa inoo tala ah. Dadkan walaalaheena ee dhibaataysan sidan uma daawan karneee. Dad laxidhiidhay Gabadhii Yusur ee bangiga iska casishay waxay u sheegtay in lacagta la rabay in la dhaco ay 100 million ahayd 1991 kii hadana ay "interest badani fuushay iyo Dahab mudo Swis yaalay waxa lagu qiyaasayaa ilaa 280 million. Shan qof ayaa rabay in ay qaataan lacagta intaa leeg. Argagixisado Kenya 1998 ayey joogeen before even al-shabaab was in the Somali scene. Can you imagine the most cottupt country in the world Kenya trying to pacify Somalia. Soomaalida hala isku Daayo.
  12. If Saaid fights for his survival any thing an happen. But, the truth is he will be compensated handsomely and will go quietly. probably couple of millions. That is the rumor coming from the villa. Qoslaaye , long time ago he realized that Saaid an not stop the attacks coming from the D block, so now it is time to get a punland guy to minimize the pressure.

  14. meeshaan gabay baa ka socda. Abtigiis, this is why people call us " a nation of poets" while it is polemic and tribal baiting , it shows the tradtion of somali " fadhi ku dirir", showing both the arogance on one side and proud Somali tradition on different side. did you see how he is challenging the Americans. After this he is probably chewing chat with his adversaries.
  15. I can not imagine taking the UN as a ransom became the latest tactic of this old man. do you know how many NGOs who are affiliated with the UN work in Hargeisa?, probably hundred. they pay teachers, nurses and almost all projects in Somaliland. a quarter of the work force are employed by them. Well if another Bashar Asad wanna be want to rise from Burco , so be it. united nationka ayaan diiday ku lahaa. afar wareersan oo ku ag wareegsan ayuu been u sheegaya. Some of you may think he is suicidal, but next two weeks some of his supporters here in Somalia on line will keep cheer him up util realty bites.
  16. Alaahu yaclam. xaaskiisuse waxay ku dhashay hargeisa. Qarxin wax la qarxiyo Somaaliland waxa ugu dambeeyey wakhtigii Rayaale. Sheekh Siilaanyo iyo Aw Godane malaha heshiis baa dhex maray in la is nabad geliyo.
  17. good stuff, Walaahoi you can put together in a book. never seen any body document all these different stages of the history. thanks .
  18. Alpha ha dhagaysan dhulka cidi kaama laha. if clan is the criteria shabeelaha hoose and Jamaame are the land of the `***`, the biyo maal , gaadsan and the owners of marka. You Duriyada guys do not listen but the `***`land is the largest from Diredwa to djibouti Illaa Duleedka laascaanood. include that some part of mudug, Shabeelaha hoose and jubooyinka.
  19. I think Jacaylbaro , got the right answer. You can hold them `xabsi daayim
  20. Talaabo , tell me one single terrorist act committed in Somaliland were the culprits are executed. the british couple were in sheekh high school which is near the city . how about Analina toneli in Borama. , those who killed wherein jail for a while and latter released. how about the one Cawer Xareed, the guy who killed people in Dilla- Borama road. he is in jail, no court, no judge. there are a lot of god things in Somaliland , but also we have to tell the disfunction of the system. I know it is tough to hear the bad news.
  21. It is not easy to execute Somalis who have committed heinous crimes. If this are local puntlanders, then Abdirahman Faroole and Puntland showed maturity and rule of law. you have to be tough on these Shabaab guys. At least they were brought to court and convicted by a judge. Unlike Puntland the Shabaab kill and execute people without trail every day. Even in Somaliland people are not executed for committing murders. An Italian doctor were killed in Borama, in Burco a british couple were murdered and in berbera -Hargeisa road another foreigner was killed. Those who were arrested was latter released by Siilaanyo. In fact one of them become the Governor of Awdal in 2010. you cannot execute local people , because their families will not allow. I take my hats off to the P
  22. The so called recognition is not about being considered as a different country . what Galayr is objecting is that the current administration of Siilaanyo will be the sole negotiator and representative of Somaliland. he says they do not represent him. he want to sit in the table. president Hassan said he will only negotiate with Siilaanyo.
  23. he wanted the Udub pary to be a national party. he told people privately that he will establish in Baidhabo , benadir and boosssaso. he was preparing a Somali reconciliation conference in Hargeisa in 2000 before Dictator Geele hijacked to carta. when he was in charge Qaybe from Sool was the speaer, some body from Sanaag Bari was foreign minister and the finance minister was from Awdal. some how people felt harmony, unlike hungry bunch from Siilaanyo and company.
  24. Allah ha u naxariisto. he was a real leader, within few years he established a system of government with progressive constitution and in his second term he organized political parties. he said they should not be more than three. when he was in charge , biixi, in aw cali, Siilaanyo and many other trouble makers who are making the noise today were all hiding. he was correct in his second term tribal issues were minimal unlike today. what a great statesman Cigaal , alla hakuu naxariisto.
