Thank you. But, I disgree with your presumption that to be a Somalimah is to be somehow oppressed. I would argue the opposite because Islam is still the ONLY religion in the world that guarantees a woman's rights.So as much as we admire the beauty of Somali women,
are we blind or comlacent to what is happening and has happerned to Somali women and girls there; the potential women,
since this post was made?
There has been no government for 9 years,
so what do we think the 52 nations and Africans in the diaspora should do about that to protect the safety of our sisters and ensure a descent life for them and their families?
But, you are right to be concerned about Somalia. It has been about 20 years. It was 20 years ago that the imperialists embarked on a program to re-colonize Somalia. This is due to Somalia's strategic value along the trading routes of the all of the big powers. Plus, Somalia has immense mineral wealth. So, they resorted to the old proven techniques of divide and conquer by setting one tribe against another. They instigated the rebelion of Somaliland against the central government of the Somali nation. And this is still the main problem to this very day.

Right now, the British are busy sending troops to Somaliland while the Clintonites at the State Department are trying to instigate further bloodshed by sending Ugandan and Burundian troops to the south. And, they cover their criminal behavior with the opening provided by Unlce Julius Nyerre when blocked the earlier efforts to Unite Africa at the AU.
The thing to keep in mind, however, is that the war against Somalia is a war of CHRISTIAN Uganda, Bururdi and Ethiopia against MUSLIM Somalia. This is not rocket science. So, as I see it, the only solution is for Muslims to rally around Somalia which has the Fourth Holiets Site of Islam. But, we do not have to reduce it to religious terms. Pan-Africanism is just one expression of Islam.
