I will be honest with you, I don't really think a whole lot about the current shit Somalis are in, I just do my part by respecting all Somalis equally, stay away from qabyaalad, and mind my own business. It might seem naive but hey, that's how I do my part( it might not seem anything, but to me it does lol). You're right though, there is way too much negativity, and mistrust among Somalis, but I refuse to belive that we will never unite. As long as people are looking back, we can never move forward. Hopefully things will get better, just look at Xamar, and Insha'Allah one day we will unite.
Well said, man! I'm more or less the same; try to still hang on to my sanity & respect all Somalis (regardless of clan), avoid clan talk as much as possible (online or irl), and contribute in whichever way I can. But, I can't help but wonder if in my lifetime, I will ever see our country back on its feet, Marka half of what it once was, "minority clans" once again thriving in their own regions with their own choices for leaders, Somalia once again a respectable country and Somalis as the decent people they once were. Will that ever become a reality or are we more or less confined to our current fate? I myself think that such notions are naive, maybe, just maybe all these people who worship their clans, stand behind them -- in both good & evil, call for clan states, etc. Could they be more realistic? More sane? Are we the insane ones?
@Twist - Wow, bro!
I know Abdalla Mansur is from Diinsoor, but did not know his family to be embroiled in such a thing. Was he by any chance related to another Abdalla who was Somali-Yemeni and was at some point Somalia's police commissioner? Abdalla Ali was his full name; dark fellow who spoke with a heavy Raxanweyn accent? Diinsoor had a sizable Yemeni & Baraawe communities, what a weird place!
