  1. Who is going to compensate those who were shooted and killed, raped and tortured and overall young children who witnesssed war-related traumatic events that left a long last impact on their lives? How about those who lost their parents killed by the ********S! in the 90s.

    How about those who want their properties back but who can not get it! Get your facts Oba before claiming and trying to advocate VICTIMS that doesn't exist, we all know who the real victims of the Somali Civil-War is!

  2. It is really amazing how some people talk the talk but don't walk the walk, at least Dr. Abdiweli had the guts to go back and make a change to Somalia's "grave city" aka Mogadishu which no one wanted to go back when he got involved in the Somali politics, and indeed he is the best candidate for presidency, Ilaaheey ha xafido,

    To Rampage, reading, researching, and overall studying for a higher degree with a higher purpose is what caused Dr. Abdiweli to wear his polished eye glasses!

  3. I am a big fan of sol, however I rarely come in to comment, so I couldnt help but wonder the hatred that Somalis have for one another, Oh! My Almighty Allah, war walaalayaaloow be happy for the brother and his family and stop the hateful comments based on****** you know what!

    Somalis are different creatures than the rest of the human beings, especifically with Immigrant communities here in MN when one of them is running for an office, they all support for that one person thinking that they have their best interest in mind since they have so many things in common, yet with us, it is all about HATE! HATE! HATE!, I WONDER WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOMALIS, why cant we show support, love, union to one another. It is really a shame, SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

    Anywho I wish the best and I am definately going to vote for brother Mohamud Noor, shame to those who made such not so good comments may Allah erase all the hate we have for one another Ameen!

  4. It is really heart breaking that when there are negative issues with in our community, then the media jumps into it and writes about ridiculous articles on us


    Yet, when there are people among us...like this brother who is sacrificing his life for the greater of the society that we live in, nobody mentions about it


    walahi it is really disgusting, they are full of hatred towards us and our religion, no doubt about it


    read this article about our brother who was shot in the line of duty and please pray for him and his family









  5. Hi Solers,


    enjoy this test, and don't cheat please



    Yearly Dementia Test



    Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer. OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.



    1. What do you put in a toaster?



    Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else..

    Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2.



    2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?



    Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.



    3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?



    Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these???

    If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.



    4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany ). Anyway, during the flight, two engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of 'no man's land' between East Germany and West Germany ... Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany , West Germany ,


    Or no man's land'?



    Answer: You don't bury survivors.

    If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop. If you said, 'You don't bury survivors', proceed to the next question.

  7. Somalis hijack a Kansas City election

    Posted by judyw on September 27, 2010


    Jack Cashill has this stunning story on American Thinker today.


    Through a combination of massive, Somali-driven voter fraud, stunning Election Board incompetence, and the willful blindness of the Kansas City Star, machine Democrat J.J. Rizzo managed to beat conservative Democrat Will Royster by one vote in a Missouri State House primary on August 3.


    There is no Republican running in this heavily Democratic, multi-ethnic Kansas City district. The Democratic nominee will face only a seriously outgunned Libertarian in the November election, and truth be told, Royster may be to the right of the Libertarian.


    What the Democratic machine and the Star, which endorsed Rizzo, did not count on was for the intrepid Royster to challenge the election in court. In so doing, he has provided a sneak preview on how a desperate Democratic Party will attempt to neutralize the will of the people this November, and not just in Kansas City.


    The account of the court proceedings is difficult to summarize but is well worth reading if you like Monty Python or Alice in Wonderland. Some highlights:


    In this primary election in which only 1,300 people voted, as many as 100 Somalis showed up to vote. Most did not speak English but claimed to be citizens. They were “helped” by fellow Somalis who directed them to vote for Rizzo. Rizzo won by one vote.


    First to testify was Lindy Hobkins, a Republican supervisory election judge. As she related, a group of Somalis came into her Kansas City election site led by one Somali man.


    “They were unable to communicate on the most basic levels,” said Hobkins of the Somalis. To help his voters along, the leader “left the premises, went outside to where the electioneers are out at the appropriate space allotted for them, and he brought in a sign for Mr. Rizzo.” Hobkins continued: he “held it up and pointed at it and said this one, this one, this one.”


    In a disturbing little twist, David Raymond, the attorney for the Kansas City Election Board, grilled Hobkins as though she were a hostile witness. After she acknowledged that the Somalis were all somehow registered to vote, Raymond asked snidely, “Do you believe these voters should be disenfranchised?”


    Thanks to the exposure of ACORN by the conservative media, it is now widely known that many people who are registered are not eligible. But if that thought ever entered the judge’s mind he kept it closely sequestered there. People who cannot speak English at even the most basic level are not eligible to become citizens. Therefore a law was broken somewhere along the line. If these Somalis were citizens, someone broke the law by giving them citizenship. If they were not citizens but were registered to vote, then their registration was fraudulent. But the judge had no interest in looking into any of this.


    “How could they be registered to vote,” [Lindy Hobkins] asked Raymond, “if they did not know how to speak English on any level?” Other than Hobkins, Royster, and Royster’s attorney, no one else involved — the Democratic Party, the Star, the Election Board, the trial judge — expressed the slightest interest in the answer to this question.


    And despite a lot more damning testimony, the judge ruled against Royster. Royster is appealing. Cashill concludes:


    The Kansas City Star has given this challenge only the slightest coverage. And in no article in a print edition has the word “Somali” appeared in relationship to the controversy.


    In November, rest assured, the Somali vote and that of others of dubious citizenship will be turned against Republicans. There is a way for readers to fight this. Call your local Election Board today. Sign up to be a judge or a poll watcher. Ask for an inner-city precinct. And make sure you know the law better than your Democratic counterpart does. It won’t be hard

  8. Hi Solers,


    I can't beleive my eyes, genetically modified fish- yuck I wouldn't eat anything like this


    on the other hand you kind think if that makes it Haram too since it isn't natural

    any thoughts?



    Genetically altered salmon: If approved, could be first of modified animals on dinner plates

    By MARY CLARE JALONICK , Associated Press

    Last update: September 20, 2010 - 4:18 PM

    WASHINGTON - Fish or frankenfish? A Massachusetts company wants to market a genetically engineered version of Atlantic salmon, and regulators are weighing the request. If approval is given, it would be the first time the government allowed such modified animals to join the foods that go onto the nation's dinner tables.

    Ron Stotish, CEO of AquaBounty, said at Monday's first of two days of hearings that his company's fish product is safe and environmentally sustainable.

    Food and Drug Administration officials have largely agreed with him, saying that the salmon, which grows twice as fast as its conventional "sisters," is as safe to eat as the traditional variety. But they have not yet decided whether to approve the request.

    Critics call the modified salmon a "frankenfish" that could cause allergies in humans and the eventual decimation of the wild salmon population. An FDA advisory committee is reviewing the science of the genetically engineered fish this week and hearing such criticisms as the agency ponders approval.

    Whether the public will have an appetite for it is another matter. Genetic engineering is already widely used for crops, but the government until now has not considered allowing the consumption of modified animals. Although the potential benefits — and profits — are huge, many people have qualms about manipulating the genetic code of other living creatures.

    Part of the hearing is focusing on labeling of the fish. It is possible that if the modified salmon is approved, consumers would not even know they were eating it. Current FDA regulations require modified foods to be labeled as such only if the food is substantially different from the conventional version, and the agency has said that the modified salmon is essentially the same as the Atlantic salmon.

    If approved, the fish could be in grocery stores in two years, the company estimates.

    Approval would open the door for a variety of other genetically engineered animals, including a pig that is being developed in Canada or cattle that are resistant to mad cow disease. Each would have to be individually approved by the FDA.

    "For future applications out there the sky's the limit," said David Edwards of the Biotechnology Industry Association. "If you can imagine it, scientists can try to do it."

    AquaBounty says it would be the first in the world to market genetically engineered fish.The company submitted its first application for FDA approval in 1995, but the agency did not decide until two years ago to consider applications for genetically engineered animals — a move seen as a breakthrough by the biotechnology industry.

    Genetically engineered — or GE — animals are not clones, which the FDA has already said are safe to eat. Clones are copies of an animal. With GE animals, the DNA has been altered to produce a desirable characteristic.

    In the case of the salmon, AquaBounty has added a growth hormone from a Chinook salmon that allows the fish to produce their growth hormone all year long. The engineers were able to keep the hormone active by using another gene from an eel-like fish called an ocean pout that acts like an on switch for the hormone, according to the company. Conventional salmon produce the growth hormone only some of the time.

    In documents released ahead of the hearing, the FDA said there were no biologically relevant differences between the engineered salmon and conventional salmon, and there is a reasonable certainty of no harm from its consumption. FDA scientists speaking Monday said there are very few differences between the modified and conventional fish.

    Critics have two main concerns: The safety of the food to humans and the salmon's effect on the environment.

    Because the altered fish has never been eaten before, they say, it could include dangerous allergens, especially because seafood is highly allergenic. They also worry that the fish will escape and intermingle with the wild salmon population, which is already endangered.They would grow fast and consume more food to the detriment of the conventional wild salmon, the critics fear.

    The FDA tried to allay both of those concerns Monday, saying the fish shouldn't cause any allergies not found in conventional salmon and that there is little chance they could escape.

    A wide range of environmental, food safety and consumer groups have argued that more public studies are needed and that the current FDA process is inadequate because it allows the company to keep some proprietary information private. Modified foods are regulated under the same process used for animal drugs.

    "It is outrageous to keep this vital information secret," said Wenonah Hauter, director of the advocacy group Food & Water Watch. "Consumers have a right to know what FDA is trying to allow into our food supply."

    Dr. Michael Hansen, senior scientist at Consumers Union, the publisher of Consumer Reports, says the agency is relying on too little data, much of which is supplied by the company itself.

    European nations have been much more cautious in embracing engineered foods. Ruediger Rosenthal, a spokesman for Bund-Friends of the Earth Germany, said it is unlikely the modified fish would make it across the Atlantic for sale as many Europeans are very skeptical of genetically modified foods.

    AquaBounty CEO Stotish countered his product has come under more scrutiny than most food.

    "This is perhaps the most studied fish in history," he said. "Environmentally this is a very sustainable technology."

    The company has several safeguards in place to quell concerns. The fish would be bred female and sterile, though a small percentage might be able to breed. They would be bred in confined pools where the potential for escape would be low.

    In its environmental analysis of the fish released earlier this month, the FDA agreed with the company that there are enough safeguards in place.

    Stotish says the fish would be bred in better conditions than many of the world's farmed salmon, and could be located closer to population centers to help feed more people. The company has also said the increase in engineered salmon production could help relieve endangered wild salmon populations.

    The company is also arguing that the fish do not need to be labeled as genetically engineered. Stotish said, "The label could even be misleading because it implies a difference that doesn't exist."

  9. Hey Rudy,


    I am not stalker, and not stalking you what so ever

    I have watched the documentary and I don't see anything wrong with it other than "telling the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth"


    so if you want to criticize to those who bad mouth and dimish the Somali name as a whole here in the twin cities are

    so hey lets write a letter to startribune and say leave the Somali name alone

    if someone commits a crime, dont say a Somali say his name damn it

  11. Hello Amna,


    Maasha Allah sister that you are thinking of marriage and not fornication. Today youth in the diaspora do that a lot and its Allah's blessing that you are thinking this way

    Ilaaheey nin khayr qaba ha kuu soo diro Insha Allah.

    Abaayo, there has been other posts about this with ppl who are ciritizing, but gabadha runta ayeey ka hadashey, and its really hard in qurbo land to find suitable suitors.

    Because one ppl are busing making ends meet, two they don't have a place to socialize and get to know one another and third there are more women in this world than men, which is the biggest one of all and the sisters don't want to share!


    marka ilaaheey ha saqiro amuuraha

    One more thing that I was gonna say to Amna, abaayo like one of the previous posters said that "marriage" doens't bring happiness marka abaayo pray and be patience insha Allah the best is yet to come



  12. Rudy,


    Walaalo, if you can't combine a beautiful poems just like brother GD did, then shut the *** up

    it seems you are being jealous of his talent


    by the way if you think you've better poems bring it on then, I bet other solers would agree with me

    let us be the judges


    Soomaalideena waxaa ka buuxi dad badan who can't be happy for the talents those among us have


    if someone writes, they criticize, if they put a poem together which is one of the hardest things to do being non-native English speaker and all

    yet they criticize, God! why can't they be happy for the individual who put a lot of hard work into it, may be they are writting it from the heart and going through some phases in life

    Rudy I have been annoyed by your lame comment

    Grow up man!!!!!!!!!

  13. Hey GD bro,


    What a beautiful poems! the 2nd one is understandable who its intended for but the first one? is it for our homeland Somalia? or for the lady,

    anywho they are beautiful

    by the way are you a writer?

  14. Isn't this city the same city that their so called "mayor" discouraged Somalis to move in?

    I beleive so


    Good news for us all

    hope we can make positive changes to everywhere we inhabit including our Motherland



    AP) Hundreds of people marched Sunday in support of Somali immigrants in Maine's second-largest city, where the mayor earlier this month asked Somalis in an open letter to discourage friends and relatives from moving there for fear of straining the city's services.


    Police said about 250 people participated in a five-block walk from a Methodist church to a mosque where many of Lewiston's Somalis worship. Some gave speeches expressing solidarity with the new arrivals.


    "We are one people, we are one community," said Mohammed Abdi, a Somali elder. The United States "is a country made up of immigrants, and one immigrant group came before another. And the Somalis just happened to come ... now."


    Abdi was one of several local Somali leaders who met with Mayor Larry Raymond on Friday following Raymond's release of an open letter in which he warned of a strain on resources if more Somalis move to the city of 36,000.


    The letter said Lewiston, where more than 1,000 Somalis have settled in 18 months, cannot continue receiving newcomers "without negative results for all."


    "We have been overwhelmed and have responded valiantly. Now we need breathing room. Our city is maxed-out financially, physically and emotionally," he wrote.


    City officials estimate that about half of the 412 Somali adults living in Lewiston have found work, but some are receiving public assistance.


    Somali elders called Raymond an "ill-informed leader" and said he should have sought a private meeting with them instead.


    The mayor said in a statement Friday that his letter was misunderstood. He added that he was particularly troubled that Somalis viewed the letter as an attempt to foment tension.


    Two protesters stood along the march route Sunday, one holding a sign that said, "How long will it take before Lewiston is like Somalia?"


    But Adbi said the long-term Lewiston residents who marched in solidarity with the Somalis outnumbered the immigrants 3 to 1.
