The State Department spent $1.5 billion on Somali democracy and built a dictatorship

by Michael Rubin  | July 27, 2020 12:09 PM

On July 25, Somalia’s appointed Parliament voted to oust Hassan Ali Khaire, the country’s prime minister. The move, which allows Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, also known as Farmajo, to consolidate greater power, caught the U.S. State Department by surprise. The move represents an intelligence failure and shines a light on a State Department policy on Somalia in free-fall.

Consider first the sheer scale of the United States’s investment in Somalia: The U.S. has spent tens of billions of dollars on Somalia in recent decades. After the Siad Barre government collapsed in 1991, the George H.W. Bush administration ordered 28,000 troops into the country in order to oversee the provision of humanitarian relief against the backdrop of warlord fighting and famine. Rather than help Somalia recover, the aid worsened the situation. It led Somali power brokers to horde aid as patronage while simultaneously starving rivals. By 2011, the international community had spent more than $50 billion to help stabilize Somalia without much to show for its investment.

Efforts to build up a unified, functional, and democratic Somali state during this period went nowhere. There were several false starts interspersed both with Islamist rule and Ethiopian intervention. In 2012, the Federal Government of Somalia replaced the Transitional Federal Government and became the 15th attempt to create a functioning government since Barre’s fall. The logic of the federal government’s creation was the acceptance that Somalia’s clan politics and the historical weight of Barre’s brutal dictatorship made centralized power unrealistic. Instead, Somalia’s six states — including Somaliland, which since 1991 has been functionally independent — would have local autonomy with only a loose association with the central government.

Because the central government had experienced a total collapse and Somalia did not have the capacity to hold meaningful elections, outside partners helped mediate negotiations to select parliamentarians based on a clan quota system. They in turn choose the president, who appoints the prime minister. To show how this works in practice, current Somali president Farmajo won the election in 2017, winning 184 votes out of 326 cast in a country with a total population at the time of 14.6 million. Through it all and over the past decade, the U.S. was investing hundreds of millions more dollars in the country, never mind that Transparency International ranked Somalia the world’s most corrupt country for each of the last 14 years.Recommended For YouHow Twitter has colonized and ruined media

Under Ambassador Donald Yamamoto, aid to Somalia more than doubled. Over the last year, not only did USAID contribute near $500 million,but Yamamoto successfully advocated debt forgiveness that forced American taxpayers to write off $1 billion in Somali debt, much of which was embezzled by some of the same figures with whom the U.S. now partners. Yamamoto wanted to give Somalia even more.

Back to Khaire: He was a deeply flawed character undeserving of the accolades bestowed upon him by Nicolas Berlanga, the European Union’s ambassador to Somalia. Earlier this month, Somalis said Khaire traveled to Qatar, which bankrolls top Somali politicians, Khaire included. After a week, he reportedly agreed to a power-sharing deal by which he would accept the illegal extension of Farmajo’s term but then in theory would be offered the position in a couple of years. When Khaire returned to Somalia, he reneged on the agreement and, with this weekend’s events, apparently suffered payback from a Parliament that too often sells votes to the highest bidder. Even if Parliament was sincere in its declaration that it ousted him because not enough progress had been made on election planning, a broader question remains why the U.S. was caught so off guard.https://4af376e8295d02692d2db31050d93eee.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Consider the pattern: The U.S. Embassy in Mogadishu was blindsided when Mohamed Osman Jawari was ousted illegally as speaker of the Parliament so that Farmajo could put his own man in place. The embassy looked the other way when both Farmajo and Khaire illegally changed regional state presidents or manipulated elections in the South West State and Galmudug and tried to do likewise to the Jubaland and Puntland leaders. The embassy was asleep when Farmajo arranged the arrest of al Shabab defector Mukhtar Robow and the murders of several of his backers after Robow decided to contest elections democratically — and when Farmajo declared persona non grata U.N. envoy Nicholas Haysom, who criticized the move. Yamamoto was silent on, if not quietly supportive of, Farmajo’s efforts to destroy all previous ties between Mogadishu and the Somaliland government and his support of armed insurgents to undermine Somaliland’s stability.

In short, both through negligence and direction, Yamamoto did everything possible to empower Farmajo. In just the last year, he invested $1.5 billion in aid and loan forgiveness to a politician whose ambitions increasingly appear to mirror that of Barre than democracy or true federalism. That Farmajo, after winning Yamamoto’s approval for delaying elections, would move to kneecap a rival runs straight from the dictator’s playbook.

Perhaps Yamamoto believed partnering with an individual would be more important than care toward the system. Every time the State Department has pursued that strategy, be it with Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat, or Mobutu Sese Seko, the result has been disaster. Farmajo will be no exception, and U.S. national security is worse for it. In effect, whether through arrogance or incompetence, Yamamoto has directed billions of dollars to a new despot and done irreparable harm not only to Somalia’s democratic transition but also to the country’s future stability. He has wasted taxpayer money in a manner that would land anyone in the private sector in the unemployment line — if not in jail. It is time for Yamamoto to come home.

Taiwan country profile

Source BBC news from 1 Feb.2019

Taiwan is an island that has for all practical purposes been independent since 1950, but which China regards as a rebel region that must be reunited with the mainland – by force if necessary.

China has claimed sovereignty over Taiwan since the end of the Chinese civil war in 1949, when the defeated Nationalist government fled to the island as the Communists, under Mao Zedong, swept to power.

China insists that nations cannot have official relations with both China and Taiwan, with the result that Taiwan has formal diplomatic ties with only a few countries. The US is Taiwan’s most important friend and protector.

Despite its diplomatic isolation, Taiwan has become one of Asia’s major economic players, and one of the world’s top producers of computer technology.

FACTS

Republic of China (ROC)

Capital: Taipei

  • Population 23,3 million
  • Area 36,188 sq km (13,972 sq miles)
  • Major languages Mandarin Chinese (official), Min Nan Chinese (Taiwanese), Hakka
  • Major religions Taoism, Buddhism, Christianity
  • Life expectancy 76,2 years (men), 82,7 years (women)
  • Currency New Taiwan dollar

LEADER

President: Tsai Ing-wen

Taiwanese President-elect Tsai Ing-wen

Tsai Ing-wen became Taiwan’s first female president when elected in January 2016.

With 56% of the vote, she led her traditionally pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to their biggest ever victory in parliamentary elections.

Ms Tsai’s political message has always revolved around the importance of Taiwanese identity, and she has pledged that democracy will be at the heart of the island’s future relations with China.

By pursuing Taiwanese sovereignty, Ms Tsai runs the risk of antagonising China, reversing eight years of warmer ties under President Ma Ying-jeou of the Beijing-friendly Kuomintang party.

In the 1990s, Ms Tsai negotiated Taiwan’s accession to the World Trade Organization. She joined the DPP in 2004 after working as a non-partisan chairwoman of Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council. Four years later she became the youngest person and first woman to lead the party. She lost the presidential election to Ma Ying-jeou in 2012.

A former law professor, she hails from the coastal village of Pingtung in southern Taiwan. Her mixed ethnicity – a Hakka father and Taiwanese mother – has been cited as one of the traits that helped her connect with voters.

MEDIA

Woman uses mobile phone in Taiwan

The media environment in Taiwan is among the freest in Asia, and extremely competitive.

Media freedom organisations say Beijing exerts pressure on Taiwanese media owners.

There are hundreds of newspapers, all privately-owned and reflecting a wide range of views.

Nearly 93% of Taiwanese are online.

TIMELINE

Some key dates in Taiwan’s history:

1683 – Island comes under administration of China’s Qing dynasty.

1895 – China – defeated in the first Sino-Japanese war – cedes Taiwan to Japan.

1945 – Taiwan reverts to Chinese control after Japanese defeat in Second World War.

1947 – Nationalist troops crush island-wide rioting by Taiwanese disgruntled with official corruption, killing unknown thousands. The event is now known as the 228 Incident.

1949 – Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek loses civil war to Mao Zedong’s Communist forces and flees to Taiwan. He rules the island with an iron fist until his death in 1975.

1950s-1960s – Rapid industrial development.

1971 – UN recognises Communist China as sole government of whole country. People’s Republic takes over China’s UN Security Council seat.

1979 – Washington switches diplomatic recognition to Beijing from Taipei. US Congress passes the Taiwan Relations Act promising to help the island defend itself.

1987 – Taiwan lifts almost four decades of martial law and eases ban on travel to China.

2000 – Voters put Democratic Progressive Party in power for first time, ending more than five decades of Nationalist rule.

Maxay Somaliland Ku Doorbiday Xidhiidhka Diblomaasiyadeed Ee Taiwan?…Fallanqayn

Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland 29 sannadood waxay dalalka reer Galbeedka, dawladaha Carabta iyo waddamada jaarka ka quuddaraynaysay in ay ka hesho aqoonsi buuxa ama xattaa mid dadban (de facto state). Madaxda iyo siyaasiyiinta Somaliland iskumay taxluujin jirin in ay xidhiidho la sameeyaan Beesha Caalamka inteeda kale oo laga heli kari lahaa dalal badan oo u diyaar ah xidhiidhka iyo saaxiibtinimada JSL.

Xasuuqii Iyo Mar Kale Maya: W/Q Cabdiraxmaan Cadami

Waxaynu qaadanay nidaamka dawladnimo iyo mabaadiida reer Galbeedka, waxaynu la ilaalinaa danaha ay ka leeyihiin gobolka, Somaliland sax iyo qalad ba waxay ku taageerta hadba waxay rabaan iyo hadba sida ay ula dhaqmayaan Dunida inteeda kale; Somaliland waxay dhankeeda isku xilqaantay in ay ka qayb qaadato la dagaallanka argagixisada caalamiga ah iyo budhcad badeedda.

Somaliland waxay xushmaysaa kuna dhaqantaa dhammaan xeerarka caalamiga ah hase ahaatee waxba kamay dheefin waxna kumay kasban.

Somaliland waxay u dhego nugushahay codsiyada iyo rabitaanka dalalka Carabta siiba kuwa khaliijka, dalalka ku loollamaya awoodda iyo amar ku taaglaynta Bariga Dhexe, xukuumadda Somaliland waxay la safatay isbahaysiga Sucuudiga, dawladda Imaaraadka gaar ahaan waxa loo hibeeyay dekedda Berbera, waxa loo ogolaaday Saldhig Militari iyagu se waxay ka gaabsadeen taageeridda qaddiyadda madaxbanaanida Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland.

Siyaasadda Arrimaha Dibadda waxa saldhig u ah in colaadihii iyo jaar xumadii Jamhuuriyaddii Soomaaliya lagu bedelo nabad iyo in horumarka la iska kaashado oo laga hadho sheegashadii Jamhuuriyadda Jabuuti iyo qaybo ka mid ah Kenya & Itoobiya sida ku cad Distoorka Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland si dalalka Geesku uga soo kabtaan dib u dhicii iyo kala qoqobnaantii waana aragti iyo hal abuur Somaliland curisay hase ahaatee maanta waxa sheeganaya ra’isal wasaaraha Itoobiya Dr Abiy Ahmed oo aragti cusub uga dhigaya Beesha Caalamka.

Somaliland waxay dalalka jaarka ah si hagar la’aan ah uga caawisa in laga hor tago falalka argagixisada ee laga fulin lahaa dhulkooda, hase ahaatee may garwaaqsan qiimaha jiritaanka iyo xasilloonida JSL ugu fadhido amniga dalalkooda, balse qaarkood waxay gacan saar la leeyihiin cadowga Somaliland.

Kama soo horjeedo in xidhiidh wanaagsan lala yeesho dalalka kor ku xusan haddiise ay albaabada ka xidheen Somaliland waxay xaq u leedahay in ay garaacdo albaabo kale sida Ruushka, Hindiya, Iiraan, Israa’iil, Waqooyiga Kuuriya iyo qaar kale oo badan.

Waxa hubaal ah in qaarkood soo dhawayn doonaan xidhiidhka JSL. Si kastaba ha ahaateen madaxweynaha JSL iyo xukumaddiisa waxaan ku bogaadinaya ugu dambeyn in ay fahmeen saaxiibtinimada dhalanteedka ah ee dawladaha reer Galbeedka, Carabta iyo kuwa gobolka, waxaan hambalyaynaya majaraha cusub ee siyaasadda arrimaha dibadda iyo baadi goobka saaxiibo la isku hallayn karo.

Somaliland jawaabtii u horaysay waxay ka heshay dalkaTAIWAN; lama aqoonsana waa se dal yar oo hodan ah, waa dalka 7-aad ee ugu dhaqaalaha badan qaaradda Eeshiya, waana dalka 20-aad Dunida oo dhan, sidaas daraadeed xaggooda aqoonsi la’aanta Beesha Caalamku muhiim uma aha.

Akhrista bal u fiirso qodobada heshiiska labada dal:Iskaashiga siyaasadda, dhaqaalaha, ganacsiga, caafimaadka, dhismaha kaabeyaasha iyo wixii la mid ah.

Haddaba sida labada xukuumadood ka go’an haddii heshiiskani hirgalo Somaliland-na uga faa’iidaysato sida ugu haboon waxaan u malaynaya Somaliland in ay noqon karto waddanka ugu hodansan Geeska Afrika oo lagu soo hiran doono.

La soco qaybta dambe………

UK announces first sanctions under new global human rights regime

The new ‘Magnitsky’-style sanctions regime will target those who have been involved in some of the gravest human rights violations and abuses around the world.Published 6 July 2020From:Foreign & Commonwealth Office and The Rt Hon Dominic Raab MP

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab with Sergei Magnitsky’s widow and son Natalia and Nikita, along with his friend and colleague Bill Browder.
The Foreign Secretary with Nikita and Natalia Magnitsky and Bill Browder.

Forty-nine individuals and organisations involved in some of the most notorious human rights violations and abuses in recent years have been designated for sanctions under a powerful new regime established today by the UK, the Foreign Secretary has announced.

The individuals and organisations are the first wave of designations under the new regime, with further sanctions expected in the coming months.

From today, the ground-breaking global regime means the UK has new powers to stop those involved in serious human rights abuses and violations from entering the country, channelling money through UK banks, or profiting from our economy.

The measures will target individuals and organisations, rather than nations.

It is the first time that the UK has sanctioned people or entities for human rights violations and abuses under a UK-only regime, and will allow the UK to work independently with allies such as the US, Canada, Australia and the European Union.

The UK’s first wave of sanctions under this new regime targeted:

  • 25 Russian nationals involved in the mistreatment and death of auditor Sergei Magnitsky, who uncovered widespread Russian corruption by a group of Russian tax and police officials
  • 20 Saudi nationals involved in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi
  • 2 high-ranking Myanmar military generals involved in the systematic and brutal violence against the Rohingya people and other ethnic minorities
  • 2 organisations involved in the forced labour, torture and murder that takes place in North Korea’s gulags

Underlining the UK’s position as a global force for good, this new regime showcases our commitment to the rules-based international system and to standing up for victims of human rights violations and abuses around the world.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, said:

Today we’re designating 49 people and organisations for responsibility in some the worst human rights abuses in recent memory.

This is a demonstration of Global Britain’s commitment to acting as a force for good in the world.

Following his announcement in Parliament, the Foreign Secretary will meet with Sergei Magnitsky’s widow and son Natalia and Nikita, along with his friend and colleague Bill Browder, at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

The regime will allow the UK to target individuals and organisations around the world unlike conventional geographic sanctions regime, which only target a country.

It could also include those who commit unlawful killings perpetrated against journalists and media workers, or violations and abuses motivated on the grounds of religion or belief.

A special unit will consider the use of future sanctions, with teams across the department monitoring human rights issues.

They will ensure targets under the landmark regime will have to meet stringent legal tests before the UK decides to designate, ensuring the sanctions are robust and powerful.

The suite of measures can also apply to those who facilitate, incite, promote, or support these violations/abuses, as well as those who financially profit from human rights violations and abuses.

The UK will continue to utilise a range of tools to tackle serious human rights violations and abuses around the world, including the UN and EU multilateral sanctions regimes.

Sanadkii 1960 kii wuxuu qaarada Afrika u ahaa xilgii baraaruga ee ay gumeystayaashii gumeysan jirey qaaradu bixinayeen madaxbanaanida qaarada waana sansaankii sanadadii xoriyada ee qaarada Afrika taas oo sanadadii 60 meeyadii bilowgiisii ilaa badhtamahiisii dalal badan oo Afrikan ahi  xoriyadoodii qaateen.

Somaliya iyo Somaliland na waxay qaab ka ahaayeen dalalkaa xoroobey sanadkii 1960.

Taariikhda dib marka loo raaco Somaliya iyo Somaliland waxaa kala gumeysanayey laba dal oo ka tirsan qaarada reer yurub Talaaniga oo Somaliya gumeysanayey iyo UK oo Somaliland  ah.

Taariikhdu waxay xustaa in qaabka uu gumeysigu ku soo galey labada dal ay kala duwanaayeen dhinaca Somaliya Gumeysigii Talyaanigu wuxuu ku soo galey qaab laga wada hadal oo qasab iyo xoog ah.

Dhinaca kale Somaliland Engiriisku wuxuu ku soo galey heshiis uu la galey madaxdii( Cuqaashii) talada deegaankaas heysay ee reer Somaliland heshiiskaasi oo labada dhinac kala qorteen.

Halkaasi waxaad ka garan gartaa farqiga u dheexeyey xitaa gumeysigii labada dal, kaas oo ku tusinaya Somaliya iyo Somaliland in farqi u dhaxeeyey qaabkii loo gumeysanayey.

Markii la soo gaadhay waayihii xoriyada ee labada dal waxaa 26 June 1960 kii Xoriyadoodii qaatey Somaliland waxaana aqoonsi dawladnimo siiyey 35 dal oo caalamka ka mida oo ay ugu horeeyeen USA,UK iyo China .

1 July 1960 ayaa iyaduna Xoriyada qaadatey Somaliya ila markaana Dawladii Somaliland isku dhiibtey Qarankii cusbaa ee Somaliya si aan shuruudi ku jirin,

Halkaana waxaa ku tasawdey qaranimadii Somaliland, ma hubo xidhiidhka ka dhexeeya naaneysta dadka reer waqooyiga loogu yeedho ee Qaldaamiinta iyo 1 July 1960 balse waxaa aan u maleenayaa hadaney ahaydba xoriyadii 26 June 1960 kii ee sida qaldan loogu hibeyey Somalida Konfureed in ay tahay uun arin ka ag dhow balse dadka maqalkan akhrisandoona Ayaan u dhaafayaa jawabta su’aasha ah 1 July 1960 iyo Naaceysta Qaldaaminta ee reer konfureedku ugu yeedhan reer waqooyiga xidhiidhka ka dhexeeya. Hadii taasi run noqotana Malaga yaabaa in reer waqooyigu markale xoriyadooda u sadqeeyaan hadii ay taasi dhacdana waa maxay naaneysta labaad ee reer konfureedku ku dhijindoonaa reer waqooyiyaga(Somaliland) waxaa oo dhan taariikhda Ayaan u dhaafayaa hadii Allah idmo.

WAANU KU KALSOONAHAY MORWO EDNA ADAN IYO MADAXDA SOMALILAND EE KA QAYBGALEY WADAHADALAD

Waxaa aad moodaa in Cadawga Somaliland iyo kuwa aan ku faraxsaneyn horumarka somaliland in ay dacaayado aan qiimo lahayn miciinsanayaan si ay u majaro habaabiyaan horumarka iyo guusha wada hadalada Somaliland ka soo hoosay shirkii Jabuuti ee bishan June 2020.

Dadku waa dhawr qaybood dad fahansan sida ay wax u socdaan iyo kuwo aan si fiican ula socon herarka diblumaasiyadeed ee qaybaha wada hadalada hadaba wadahadaladii ugu dambeyey waa kuwo ay somaliland ku cadeysay mufqifkeeda inuu yahay laba dal oo Jaar ah oo is kaashada hadii ay somaliya diyaar u tahay.

Hadaba kolba sheeko gaaban oo laga dabakeenaa waxay muujinaysaa in kuwii ku hungoobay rabitaankooda ama danahooda gaarka ahi iney kolba meel daasad ka tumayaan lagu kicinayo dadka aan fahmin ujeedada ka dambeysa wararkan laga dabakeenayo iyo sheekooyinkan aan ka soconeyn,sida warar lagu kalsoon yahay tibaaxayaan dad dano kala duwan leh ayaa markey arkey guusha qadiyada Somaliland kabanka meel kale ka garaacay balse Marwo Edna Adan ayaa inoo faahfaahisay wixii ay arimuhu ahaayeen inagana waxaa inala gudboon in aynu ku kalsoonano madaxdena inooga wakiilka ah wada hadalada oo aynu u muujino taageero tan kale Somaliland maanta ma looga baqayo iney majaraheeda ka weecato waayo dadka reer Somaliland ayaa raba sidaasi iney ku ahaadaan dalkooda iyo qaranimadooda mid aan gorgortan gelin waana rabitaanka saxa ah.

DAWLADA SOMALIYA JAWAAB MA U HAYSAA HADALKA TRUMP ANIGU WAAN U HELAYE?

Madaxweynaha Mareykanku wuxuu si aan gabasho lahayn u weeraray Dawladnimada Somaliya isaga oo u soo marey hadal duurxul ah oo uu ku soo halqabsadey gabadh maraeykan Somali ah oo La yidhaa Ilhan Omar kana tirsan Xisbiga Dimoqraadiga ah ee Mareykanka arintani waxay lee dahay laba weji midi waa wajiga Mareykanka iyo dadkiisa ka dhexeeya ee Ilhan iyo Siyaasada Mareykanka taas Mr. Trump waa uu ku qaldan yahay in uu xidhiidh ka dhexeysiiyo arimaha Somaliya ka taagan iyo gabadh Mareykan ah oo dalkeeda maraykanka u shaqayneysa waana arin aad u qaldan shakhsi ahaana waan cambaareynayaa in madaxweyne Mareykan ahi muujiyo nacabka uu u qabo qaybo ka mida bulshadiisa isaga oo ku shaabadeynaya wax aaney geyin kuna dhisan cunsuriday iyo nacab salka ku haya isir.

Arinta Labaad waa arinta uu Madaxweyne Trump uu ku soo gunaanadey in Somaliya ay tahay Meel fowdo ah oo aaney Dawlad,police, nabadgelyo midna aaney ka Jirin arintaa Jawaabteedu maxay u taalaa dawlada Somaliya.

Balse Madaxweyne Trump waxaa su’aalayaa dhowr arimood:

1- Somaliya waxaa ka koobney laba dal oo isku tigey 1 July 1960 waxaana la kala odhan jirey: British Somaliland oo xorowdey 26 June 1960 iyo Italiya Somaliiya oo Xorowdey 1 July 1960 labadaa dal waxay mar labaad kala noqdeen 28 May 1991 ilaa maanta waa laba dal oo kala maqan

Somaliya adaga ayaa afkaga ka sheegay in aanay dawladi ka jirin,nabadi ka jirin,booliis lahayn oo ay fowda uun tahay waxaanuna og nahay in aad Somaliland oo nabad leh police leh dumuqraadiyad iyo xisbiyo badan leh aanad maalina afkaga xitaa ku xusin weliba aad bishan bilowgeedii aad shirkii Jabuuti aad daba ka riixeysey oo aad Somaliya la safney oo aad lahayd waa in Somaliland la heshiisaa, waxaa kale oo aanu ognahay dhaqaalaha aad ku bixiso dhismaha Somaliya adiga oo Somaliland na marwalba ku caadinaya inay Somaliya la heshiiso hadaba su’aasheydu waxay tahay ma waxaad rabtaa meel(Somaliya) aad adiguba aaminsan tahay in aaney dawladi ka jirin in aad somaliland cadaadis ku saartid si ay ula mid noqoto Somaliya taas oo la mid ah (100X0 =0) ?

2- Somaliland maxaad ka Aaminsan tahay Xasuuqii ka dhacay wakhtigii dawladii Somaliya ee , oo weliba dhaalaha lagu xasuuqay hubka iyo taakuleyntaba loo tirinayo in dalka mareykanku gacan weyn ku lahaa?

3- Mareykanku muxuu ugu cadaadinayaa Somaliland in aaney ayaheeda ka tashan oo shacbiga Somaliland oo in ka badan 96 % u codeeyey in ay gobanimadoodii soo ceshadaan kana baxaan midowgii Somaliya ?

Ugu dambeyntii Madaxweynaha Mareykanka Mr. Trump waxaa la gudboon in uu dib u eegis ku sameeyo Siyaasada mareykanka ee ku aadan Somaliya gaar ahaan Somaliland oo ah qaran dhameystirtay hanaanka dawlad wanaaga iyo dimoqraadiyada geeska Afrika iyada oo ku dadaashay sugida abniga mandaqada iyo kan caalamka ee siyaasada bada cas sidaa darteed mareykanka intaan fursada saaxiibtinimo ee Somaliland cid kale uga horeyn miyaanay ahayn in uu xaqiiqada wajaho oo uu xidhiidhka Somaliland iyo mareykanka wanaajiyo hadii kale somaliland oo in badan samreysey waxay sameysan doontaa Saaxiibo kale oo wax la qabta taageerana waxaan ku soo gabababeenayaa A Somali proverb says “If you don’t know what will come of future, you don’t know what is going on now”.

CHINAHA WAXAA LA GUDBOON INAY JOOJIYAAN TACADIYA AY KU HAYAAN DADKOODA MUSLIMKA AH

Inkasta oo ay suurta gal tahay in aadnay dawlada Chinahu aaminsanin muhiimada diinta Allah(swt) u leedahay guud ahaanba nolosha adamaha,oo Chinahu mabda ahaan yahay dawlad shuuci ah hadana waxaa dhamaan mabadiida caalamku isku waafaqsan tahay in adamigu xor u ahaado fikirkiisa,diintiisa iyo waxaa uu aaminsan yahay,sidaa darteed Chinaha waxaa la gudboon in uu horiyada diimaha tixgeliyo gaar ahaan dhibaatada baahsan ee uu ku hayo dadka Muslimiinta ah ee Chinaha gaar ahaan kuwa dalkaas ee loo yaqaan Uighurs.

Dad badani waxay Aminsan yihiin in xanuunkan COVID-19 uu yahay digniin Allah oo kuwajahan Xusuusinta Adamaha in ay Cadaalada ilaaliyaan oo aaney ku xadgudbin xuquuqda dadka kale ay u lee yihiin fikirkooda diineed sidaa darteed waxaa ka dhalandoona ciqaabo waaweyn hadii dad lagula kaco dulmi iyo takoorid waxaa uu doono ha aminsanadeed waayo qofka aminaanta fikiriga ah isaga iyo Allah abuuray ayey u dhaxaysaa oo waa xisaab shaqsiyadeed, ma aha mid u taala dawlad iyo cid kale toona sidaa darteed dawlada China waxaa la gudboon inay cadaadiska,dhibta iyo takoorka ka qaado qayaha dadkeeda ka mida ee ay u sameysatey xeryaha lagu ciqaabo dadkeedana u cadaaladsameyso, qof aan dambi kale gelina in lagu bartilmaameedsado waa Muslin waa xaqdaro weyn oo laga galey dadka muslin ka ah iyo xoriyada adamaha.

QM (UN) ayaa qiyaasta in inka badan hal milyan oo muslimiin ah ay ku xabisan yihiin xirooyin ku yaalla gobolka Xinjiang.

Mareykanka ayaa noqday dawladii ugu horeysey ee cunaqabateen ku soo rogta dalka chinaha arin la xidhiidha Musliminta dalkaasi ee lagu hayo xadgudubyada balse caalamka intiisa kale waxay ka daawanayaan daaqadaha,waxaa loo bahay yahay in dawlada china ay ka qaado takoorka ay ku hayso dadkeeda Muslimiinta ah ee iyaga oo dambi gelin lagu dhibaateenayo maxaa Allah ugu hogaansantihiin,Aduunka cidna cidkale kama tirtiri karto aan ahayn Allah doonistiina sidaa darteed adamaha waxaa la gudboon in ay qolowalba fikirkooda loo daayo oo diintooda si kor ah u haystaan diinta Islamkuna waa diin nabadeed oo ogol in shucuubtu kuwada nolaato sinaan,cadaalad iyo isjacayl sidaa darteed chinaha waxaa la gudboon in uu dadkaasi ilaaliyo xuquuqdooda, ma muuqato dhibaato ay dadka muslimiinta ah ee shiinuhu ku hayaan dadka kale ee shiinaha iyo dawladaba balse waa baqdin uu shiinuhu ka qabo diinta islamka sidaa darteed shinahu intii uu cabsi aan jirin iyo nacab shaki ku dhisan u cadaadin lahaa dadka muslinka ah ee dalkiisa waxaa haboon in uu caadi u arko waayo kumanaansanadood ayey dadkani Muslin ahaayeen dhibna kuma hayaan chinaha.

MAXAY YIHIIN DADKA UU HUGA KA TUURAY SHIRKII JABUUTI EE SOMALIYA IYO SOMALILAND?

Shirka Jabuuti waxaa uu ahaa mucjisadii 2020 ee Siyaasada geeska Afrika,shirkani wuxuu ahaa mid la sugayey mudo dheer oo dad badani filayeen in maalin uun iman doono shir noociisa ah.

Shirka waxaa uu ahaa mid siyaasiintii soo qabanqaabeyey iyo dalalkii dabada ka wadey toona aaney xisaabta ku darsan   DURDURO GEEL BAA KUJABA DAMAACUNA WAA XUN YAHAY,DANTUNA WAA LAMA HURAAN!

Ugu horeyntii waxaa la bilaabay Furitaankii Shirka, nin waliba rabitaankiisii  buu ceelka keeney, Jewigii Shirka waxaa bedelay Khudbadii Madaxweynaha Somaliland oo mudo ka badan 20 daqiidadood dhegaha wufuudada qaarkood ku ahayd sawaariikhdii iyo madaafiicidii dawladii Somaliya 1988 kii ku garaaceysey maatidii iyo dadkii rayidka ahaa ee deganaa Somaliland xiligaa,raga qaar baa nidayada ka lahaa mar uun miyuu mudane Muuse bixi afka isku qabto oo uu naga dhaafo taariikhda uu runta ka sheegayo,kashifaada beesha caalamka dhexdeeda marna may fileynin,rag badan kursiga dirqi ayey ugu fadhiyeen maney rabin in ay maqlaan Somaliland xasuuqii loo geystey in lagu xisaabtamayo balse waxay la ahayd in 30 sanood ee Somaliland xorta ahayd la ilaabay.

Wejigii shirka waxaa bedelay xogtii la is xusuusiyey waxaa bedelay in Somaliland Somaliya ka go in ee ay ahaayeen laba dal oo ku midoobey si doonis ah,markii dambena ku kala baxay rabitaanka dadkii markii horaba hormoodka ka ahaa midowgu markey kala kulmeen dalkii ay la midoobeen

Tacadiyada ilaa hada xalka loo la yahay. Somaliland Abaal bay ku lee dahay dadyowga geeska afrika iyo Caalamkaba waayo:

  1. Itoobiya waxay Somaliland la lee dahay xuduud balaadhan xuduudkaas ciidamada Jamhuuriyada Somaliland baa kaga xijaaban in itoobiya nabadeeda la waxyeeleeyo,itoobiya way kaga nasatey in cadow uga soo galo dhinaca Somaliland 30 Sanoba khatarta itoobiya kaga iman lahayd waxaa kaga gudbanaa dawlada iyo Shacabka Somaliland itoobiya iyada ayaa la weydiin bal iney Somaliland abaalkaa u hayso iyo in kale
  2. Jabuutina waa la mid sida Somaliland u ilaaliso nabadgelyada itoobiya ee xuduudka ay la wadaagto Somaliland ayaa kan Jabuutina Somaliland u ilaalisaa sidaa darteed Somaliland oo nabad ah waxay dan u tahay Jabuuti iyo Itoobiyaba
  3. Somaliya iyo Somaliland xuduudka ay wadaagaan waa mid ciidamad qaranka Somaliland ilaaliyaan degenashaha xuduudka ee dhinaca Somaliya waxaa suurta geliyey ciidamada qaranka ee Somaliland inkasta oo Somaliya mar walba carqad ku tahay nabada xuduudkaasi.

Bulshada caalamka nabadgelyadooda iyo danahoodaba si hagar la’aan ah ayey Somaliland u ilaalisaa waxaa beda dheer ee Somaliland ku nabadgaley isku socodka maraakiibta caalamka iskaga gooja iyaga oo aan 30 sano ee ay Somaliland jirtey aaney jirin hal Markab oo laga afduubay xeebaha balaadhan ee Somaliland iyada oo xitaa caalamku wax tar muuqda u geysan ciidamada bada ee Somaliland oo ah kuwa sida nafhurida ah u ilaaliya nabada ceebaha bada cas inta Somaliland u dhow.

Hadaba dawladaha jarka la ah Somaliland iyo kuwa caalamkaba waxaa ku haboon iney abaalka Somaliland ku lee dahay qirsanaadaan kuna dadaalaan wax la qabadka iyo taageerada qarankan Somaliland oo muujiyey dadal badan.

Tan kale shirkaasi Jabuuti ee todobkan ka socday jabuuti wuxuu huga ka tuurey kuwo badan oo markii horeba aan rabin in xal loo helo mushaakilka somaliya iyo Somaliland kuwaasi oo aad borortooda baraha bulshada ku badan yahay sida ay dadka qaarkii qabaan dadkaa uu shirku qaawiyey waa kuwo iskugu jira :

  • Kuwii dilaalinta ka ahaa qadiyada Somaliya iyo Somaliland ee ka ganacsada dhiiga shacbigooda somaliya iyo Somaliland ba oo aan rabin in xal laga gaadho arimahan
  • Dad aan fahsaneynba arimaha laysku hayo balse qabyaalidi madax martey iwm.

Trump Administration Sues to Try to Delay Publication of Bolton’s Book

The request comes a week before the highly anticipated memoir was set to be published.

By Maggie Haberman and Katie Benner June 16, 2020

The Trump administration sued the former national security adviser John R. Bolton on Tuesday to try to delay publication of his highly anticipated memoir about his time in the White House, saying the book contained classified information that would compromise national security if it became public.

The book, “The Room Where It Happened,” is set for release on June 23. Administration officials have repeatedly warned Mr. Bolton against publishing it.

Mr. Bolton made clear in a statement this week that his book contained explosive details about his time at the White House. He and Mr. Trump clashed on significant policy issues like Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan, and in his book, Mr. Bolton also confirmed accusations at the heart of the Democratic impeachment case over the president’s dealings with Ukraine, according to details from his manuscript previously reported by The New York Times.

The Justice Department accused him of short-circuiting a government review that he had agreed to participate in for any eventual manuscript before even accepting the post in 2018.

Mr. Bolton is breaking that agreement, “unilaterally deciding that the prepublication review process is complete and deciding for himself whether classified information should be made public,” department lawyers wrote in a breach of contract lawsuit against Mr. Bolton filed in federal court in Washington.

The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, has already printed and distributed copies, and the lawsuit did not name it as a party, in an apparent nod to the constitutional and practical impediments to trying to stop it. Instead, the Justice Department asked a judge to seize Mr. Bolton’s proceeds from the book deal and to order him to try to persuade Simon & Schuster to pull back the book and dispose of copies until the review is completed.

Mr. Bolton’s lawyer, Charles J. Cooper, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He has said that his client acted in good faith and that the Trump administration is abusing a standard review process to prevent Mr. Bolton from revealing information that is merely embarrassing to President Trump, but not a threat to national security.

A spokesman for Simon & Schuster called the lawsuit “nothing more than the latest in a long-running series of efforts by the administration to quash publication of a book it deems unflattering to the president.”

While insider books vex many administrations, it is rare for one to sue to delay them before publication. Several former White House lawyers from Democratic and Republican administrations said they could not recall a similar legal effort to stop a book by a former White House official.

Edna Adan Ismail, Honorary Doctor

Edna, awarded an honorary doctorate in the School of Health and Social Care, was the first Somali woman to study in the UK, and the first to work as a qualified nurse

Edna Adan Ismail (Nursing, 1956), who has been awarded an honorary doctorate in the School of Health and Social Care, was the first Somali woman to study in the UK, and the first to work as a qualified nurse. She is also Somaliland’s first female politician, and has built her own teaching hospital and university, with the aim of raising standards of healthcare and education in her homeland.

Growing up

“When I was growing up in British Somaliland, girls didn’t go to school. My parents were both literate, though, and our house was full of books. My father invited the local boys to come and sit on our veranda after school, and hired a tutor to help them with their homework. That’s where I first began to decipher the mysteries of reading and writing. Eventually I was sent to school in Djibouti, in French Somaliland, where my aunt was a teacher.

“My mother’s female friends were worried that if I got an education, no one would want to marry me. They couldn’t understand why I wasn’t happy to stay at home and learn to cook like the other girls. I wanted to get educated, and I wanted to run and play and climb trees like the boys. I proved them all wrong in the end, as I did all those things and still ended up marrying the man who had been the president of Somaliland!

Healthcare from an early age

“From an early age, I worked alongside my father in his hospital. I’d go in and help him during the school holidays, or whenever he needed an extra pair of hands. There were no bandages, so one of my jobs would be to cut sheets into strips, boil them, iron them and roll them up. If he had to go away, he’d leave me notes: make sure they feed this child properly, or remove those sutures. I’d listen to his frustrations too, about the lack of materials and poor facilities. I promised myself that one day I would create the kind of hospital my father would have loved to work in.

“I came to London to study pre-nursing at the Borough Polytechnic in 1954. I had a scholarship paid for by the British government. I’d never travelled further than Djibouti before but I’d seen films and pictures of London and knew what it looked like, although the sheer size and number of people came as a surprise. My first home was in digs in Balham. The family had children around my age, and one of the daughters taught me how to ride the buses and get around. I’m still in touch with them today.

Specialisation

“Midwifery was not my first choice of specialisation. I really wanted to specialise in surgery. It was the one time I remember my father really questioning one of my decisions. He said, yes, surgery is great. But what are you going to do for the women back home in Somaliland who need you at the most vulnerable time in their lives? And I thought, after all the opportunities I’ve had and the freedom I’ve enjoyed, I should think about giving something back. I did Part 1 and fell in love with midwifery.

“There was never any question in my mind that I would come back to Somaliland. I was very clear that the knowledge and experience I was gaining in England was for the benefit of the people here. When I came back, there was a definite air of optimism. The British had left, and Somaliland was independent. Still, the infrastructure was virtually non-existent and no one knew what to do with a female nurse, nor how to pay one – I worked for 22 months without a salary.

Getting into politics

“Becoming the First Lady gave me an opportunity to be a role model. The assumption was that I would give up working, but I didn’t. Many people thought I was doing a great disservice to my husband, but he was always very supportive. It was around this time – in the late 1960s – that I started training auxiliaries in the hospital to take better care of the women. From there, I started inviting girls who’d been my pupils back when I was a schoolteacher to come in and help me. Their families didn’t want them to get involved with the patients. But slowly, slowly, they began to get interested and excited by the possibilities. Of that first group, five got scholarships to study in England, and three came back to work here. That’s really how nursing in this country got started.

“How do you build a hospital in a country with no infrastructure? You just get up and do it. The Edna Adan Maternity Hospital is actually my second hospital – the first, in Mogadishu in neighbouring Somalia, fell into the hands of the warlords during the civil war. The fact that there was no infrastructure, and that so many people doubted me, just made me more determined. I put everything I had into it – all my savings from my years working with WHO, and the proceeds from selling my jewellery and my car – plus donations from the local community and from the diaspora worldwide. I always kept that picture in my mind of the woman who is smelly, who is bleeding, who doesn’t have anywhere else to go. That’s the person I want to help.

“I was co-opted into becoming a politician. When I was first asked to become the Minister for Social Affairs, I said no. My hospital had only been open for five months, and I felt like a mother with a new baby. Then the new president got his wife on the case and she used the magic words, remember, you’ll be opening the door for other women. So I agreed to split my time 50/50. There were no buildings, so we turned a floor of the hospital into the Ministry. From there, I went on to become Foreign Minister.

“Now we have 200 staff, and I’ve established a university too, with 1500 students. We offer courses in nursing, midwifery, public health, nutrition, veterinary health, pharmacy, laboratory and medicine– it’s very comprehensive. This is my way of helping us develop and keep the talent we so desperately need in the country, and stopping our young people falling prey to human trafficking and terrorism. My next target is teacher training. We need to professionalise teaching here, and make sure our children are getting a proper education.

On taking time off

“I was born with a strong desire to fix things. Why should I have downtime? When I need to recharge my batteries, I go out to my family’s camel farms and feed the newborn calves – that’s very therapeutic. But I don’t take much time off.”

I’m 81 this year, and I don’t have time to waste. There are still so many things I want to do. Holidays can wait.
