Somaliland will not exist in 10 years.

A radical shift is a needed. We need to go back the spirit of 1991.

Please read. Image
In the first 10 years of Somaliland's existence, we were a nation that was utterly devastated by genocide and subsequent liberation war.

But the story of Somaliland; what we stood for, what we believed in, was crystal clear.

Somehow this is not the case today. A quick example: Image
1. In Feb 1996, the High Court of Somaliland sentenced AUN Abdirahman Tuur, the founding father of this nation, to death in absentia for rejecting Somaliland's independence.

Somaliland was uncompromising and stood firm, even against the very man who led its liberation.

#FakeNews and misleading

1/7 🧵 - Let’s look into this thoroughly

1. Who owns Marwan1?
2. Where was the ship when it was seized?
3. What is the purpose of the random SL maritime registration certificate?
4. The so called “UN letter” to Somaliland?
2/7 - Who owns Marwan1?

Marwan1 also formerly Al Wesam 4 as per photos taken in Qandala, #Puntland, It is licenced by Puntland and Federal Gov of Somalia under the name Al Wesam Fishing and cold storage according to registration document and a Bill of landing dated June 2018. ImageImageImageImage
3/7 - The crews’ visas were applied for by Som Link Fisheries (linked to Yemeni based arms traffickers and Al-Qaeeda) and granted by the Puntland authorities. The US treasury recently sanctioned 8 individuals from Puntland who sold weapons to or were active al-Shabaab members. ImageImageImage

It appears 🇬🇧 🇺🇸 and Hargeisa have come to their senses and backed off a several month long ruinous path towards a secession of #Somaliland.

Albeit only after a lot of conflict and needless death. Excellent interesting report here via ⁦…
It is revealing that the beginning of a return to sanity in Hargeisa in this imperialist - western power driven - lethal misadventure appears to have come after a tweet from @AsstSecStateAF Molly Phee (who has this past week been in Addis with a high level delegation.)
The most useful thing that the Western Powers - EU NATO & US (presently engaged in #JustifiedAccord DoD led exercises) could do to end this debacle once and for all would be to recall their provocateur in chief in this region - Matthew Bryden aka @dibjir.

@RAbdiAnalyst there is not fascinating about your "dossier". After the murder of Hadrawi by an unknown assassin. The people of #Laascaanood protested & @musebiihi's RRU massacred at least 20 unarmed protest using military grade weapons. Image
On the 4th January, #Somaliland's militia executed Mohamud Ali Sadle in the middle LA. After the murder, they violated the corpse by refusing it to be taken for a proper Islamic burial. Outraged locals took up and ejected the #Somaliland militia from city. Image
In desperation, @musebiihi attempted to scapegoat two Habar Jeclo soldiers & offered their heads for Ali's murder. The victim's subclan (JS) refused the offer & instead demanded justice for all the victims. After this @musebiihi started creating his own fact & figures. Image

It also seems very poorly timed vis a vis the peace efforts underway in neighbouring Ethiopia, the war & peace effort in which all of these countries were either directly or indirectly involved in to different degrees.
Excepting Botswana which seems a to be an outlier.
It would be far better if the US pursued its strategic objectives in the HoA primarily using soft power rather than military exercises.

How does this exercise relate to #ATMIS

I have a lot of questions and concerns about the implications of a renewed US military posture in HOA.

@mrubin1971 @TheNatlInterest @AEIfdp 1. Problem with the likes of Mike Rubin is b/c people ignore their nonsense they think they are right. He writes “At one time, he [Isaias] also considered attacking #Somaliland in order to gain a port on the Red Sea.” He gets an F in geography. Somaliland is not on the Red Sea.
@mrubin1971 @TheNatlInterest @AEIfdp 2. Rubin writes “Isaias cares nothing about the #Eritrean people.” It’s outrageous. Mike Rubin a hired lobbyist is telling us he cares about #Eritrea more than the incorruptible, selfless servant leader, who gave more 3/4 of his life for his people and country!
@mrubin1971 @TheNatlInterest @AEIfdp 3. Rubin “Isaias’ rule depends in part on his ability to cut Eritreans off from the outside world.” WRONG! #Eritreans have more access to information than Rubin and his neocon friends allow Americans to have.

#Somaliland & @DP_World’s Berbera Economic Zone is the new hot spot for business in the Horn of Africa. Here are 10 reasons why. Image

Is @igadstvs a tool to disadvantage Somalilanders?

A Thread

IGAD Sheikh Technical Veterinary School and Reference Centre (ISTVS) gives opportunities rightfully belonging to #Somalilanders to students from Somalia under the guise of IGAD and “Somali”. 1/7

Somaliland government handed over the Sheikh Technical Veterinary School to IGAD under the supervision of the EU (3 million EUR project). This means the #Somaliland government knew the purpose of the transfer and what the school will be used for. 2/7
The project is implemented by Terra Nuova and under the auspices of African Union, Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources. According to Terra Nuova’s website, the school’s purpose is “leading Somalia becoming a world leader in the export of live animals”

@It’s Official

@BBC_somalia is finally suspended operating in #Somaliland by the government.

Why? Let’s examine

It’s Impartial and always looks one side - ignoring the other

Swahili people has got BBC but they don’t feel they’re segregated
Not credible as they started to spread unsubstantiated stories whenever is about #Somailand sovereignty

Make no mistake it didn’t bother to report the ill-fated regime in Somalia or their President who is guarded by AU peacekeepers from his own people.
It’s not fair and balanced source of news for many somali speaking including Somalilanders

Simply because it doesn’t fairly report complex matters of culture and history differences between 🇸🇴& SL

This is confusing for many people Specially those interested in history

An old piece

July - Now after 62 years , Somalia is celebrating their independence from Italian Colony .

The Idea of Somalis to have one people , country and flag hasn't been successful despite efforts made by the lobbyist from #Somaliland
Perhaps the principal was wrong or worse than expected.

Today we hope with the New FIVE regions formed within Somalia and ruled by Mogadishu would prosper and restore hope among people who never had a day to celebrate in PEACE
Maybe this is the Five Somalis they were yearning
— for and aspiring to get one day.

Still they’re searching and only thing they could do is to dance on 1 Jul as it was a day that brought joy and happiness.

On contrary it was a day that witnessed the birth of a merciless and totalitarian state, one that committed a genocide

Maxay Shacabka Reer #Hargaysa, gaar ahaan ganacsatada Waaheen, uga qayliyeen in Xukuumada Biixi iyo Wasaaraddiisa Hawlaha Guud loo xilsaaro maamulka iyo dibudhiska suuqii gubtay ee Waaheen?


Thread 🧵

Ina Mari;

Shacabka SL guud ahaan waa dad soo jeeda, wax xan ahina kama qarsoona. Ka faa'idaysiga dhibaatadoodu waa mid ay ogyihiin, kuna baraarugsan yihiin. Damac kasta oo hantiyeed oo qoyska Madaxwaynaha ama cid kale ka gala suuqa gubtay ma aha mid ka qarsoomaya.

Qandaraaska dhismaha suuqa ayaa la doonayaa in cid gaar ah lagu naasnuujiyo, hadhoowna sida biyagelinta Hargaysa weligii la sugo ama wax aan naf lahayn loo macmalo, malaayiina lagu lunsado.

Tan ayaa durba walaac ku abuurtay ganacsatada xoogsatada ah ee suuqa Waaheen.

Reasons why #Somaliland is not a secessionist.

A Thread

1/10. Many uninformed and staunch anti-Somaliland individuals use the term ‘secession’ without understanding the legality of the word. Does Somaliland’s Declaration of Independence fall within secessionist criteria? Image
2/10. From international law perspective, secession means unilateral declaration of independence without the consent of the parent state. Somalia is not the parent state in this matter as there was a illegal union with Italian Somalia to form what was known as the Somali Republic
3/10. Two equal entities united illegally (See my thread below explaining why the union was illegal), Therefore Somaliland has legitimacy and does not need a consent as there is no parent state. A recent example of secessionism will be South Ossetia seceding from Georgia.

The Jasiira massacre in Mogadishu on the 17th of July 1989 was part of the #IsaaqGenocide

A Thread

1/22. This witness statement came from the only survivor Omar Muse. It pays tribute to the 56 innocent lives lost that day to a state sponsored genocide. رحمهم الله

2/22. Mr Muse said “It was the middle of the night when #Somalia’s army knocked on our door to identify people from S/land, especially people from the isaq tribe. They have threaten to break the door unless we open the door. The door was opened by a gentleman named A/risaq Aidid”
3/22. “I hid in a toilet whilst the army ransacked the house and woke everyone. I glanced to see what is going on and I made a noise which brought the attention of the army to myself. The army ordered me to come outside where they were holding all the household members”

The illegal union between British #Somaliland and Italian #Somalia.


1/12. A pan-Somali dream to step-over colonial borders separating the 5 Somali inhabited territories (Djibouti, NFD, Ogaden region) has brought Somaliland and Somalia together but was the union legal?
2/12. Protectorate Somaliland achieved its independence on June 26, 1960 and received international recognition from 35 countries such as #China, #Egypt, #Ethiopia, #France, #Ghana, #Israel, and #theSovietUnion. There were numerous congratulatory messages notably from #USA.
3/12. The independence of Somalia was guided by the Italian Trusteeship Administration. On April 1960, officials from protectorate Somaliland and trusteeship Somalia met to create the illusion of the so called ‘Somali’ dream and on July 1, 1960, joined to form the United Republic

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits


1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.
