That's impossible. Berbera is a dusty village with a small port. Surely Jews could have done much better.

What is it with you and your unhealthy fixation with this so-called ''dusty village''? You've even dedicated many posts insulting it, do you attain some sort of strange satisfaction out of that? :lol: :?

@The OP, Berbera has a rich history and was once part of the great Ottoman Empire, it is possible because of this reason and by way of it being an important trade route for centuries that, there may have been some that have passed through.
