Comment worth noting: Minneapolis Somali leader confirms criticism of CAIR and the mosque

I told you last week that a brave bunch of Somalis actually stood up to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its apparent efforts to stymie the investigation into the Somali Missing youth case. Today we have heard directly from one of the Somali activists to correct an error I made and to reaffirm their criticism of CAIR.
To set the stage for new readers. On June 10th I pointed a finger at CAIR as the hold-up in the FBI’s investigation of the missing youths, here.
Maybe they could investigate if the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) would get out of the way! I have written several times about how CAIR is blocking access to Somali students and keeping them from speaking to FBI investigators. Here is only the most recent post I wrote on the subject back in April, it’s entitled: CAIR wants legal protection for students questioned by FBI!
Readers might also want to visit Judy’s post, here, where she reports that CAIR instructed Muslims elsewhere not to cooperate with the FBI.
Then much to my surprise, a group of Somalis headed by Omar Jamal* and Abdirizak Bihi (uncle to the Somali-American reportedly killed recently in Somalia) actually did protest against CAIR. I was stunned at how much bravery this involved, here.
Next, another group of Somalis defended CAIR and criticized Jamal and Bihi here. This is how I began that post:
I told you (here) how surprised I was a week or so ago to learn that some Somali Muslims had the guts to protest against the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the actions it has undertaken that some claim undermine FBI investigations into the Somali missing youths. My estimation of Omar Jamal had actually gone up a bit! A Somali political activist, Farheen Hakeem now informs us that anti-CAIR protesters were not really representing the Somali “community.”
Abdirizak Bihi, in a comment to that post earlier this morning, informs us that I was wrong and that Farheen Hakeem is not even a Somali. I’ve been reading that CAIR is close to far left “Community organizers” working in places like Wade Rathke’s SEIU (Service Employees International Union) and have been speculating that “organizers” are being sent to various US cities to ”organize” the Somalis. Hmmm! Is that how Hakeem came to be in Minneapolis?
Bihi, in a comment to RRW today, wants us to know the following:
My name is Abdirizak Bihi. Iam a Somali Cimmunity Leader as well as Somali American Missing Kids’Families Spokesman in mn NICE.
As you have mistakenly noted, Farheen Hakeem is not Somali American. She is, according to my friends, Afghan American from WI. But she likes to rule us, wip us like CAIR. She is part of , (Former Chair of CAIR, mn). Look and Read her article abou me and Exc Dirof Somali Jusctice Advocacy Center in the SatrTribune.
We are being silenced by this powerfull and highly connected CAIR org. We are not going to go away anytime soon. We survived a civil war, terror is still reigning in our homeland. It seems to follow us her and it is being funded and supported aggressively to threaten us. Fraheen Hakeem was very honest to demonstrate and be a living example of how we re misrepresented and silenced by CAIR and Her likes. See for your self. How They make our fake leaders. How they condemn those they do not like. Yeah You are the one they have been projecting to these lies. We stood up to them. They are getting so despeerate as to paint us bad.
Look for us as we continue to upgrade and claim our GOD Given American Freedom and Liberty.
Those who BRAIN-WASHED AND STOLE our children AND TOOK THEM TO SOMALI’ INFERNO (MONEY MOSQUE MAKING MECHINE Abubakr Sadique, their CAIR Allies and THEIR unsuspecting FRIENDS have done us unrepairaBLE DAMEAGE TO US. wE WILL NOT FORGIVE THEM AS LONG AS THEY CONTINUE TO BRAIN WASH THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE.
WE WILL FIGHT TO THE END TO GET JUSTICE FOR BURHAN HASSAN AND THE OTHER HUNDRES TRAFICKED CHILDREN.
WATCH YOUR CHILDREN.
BECAUSE WHEN THEY ARE NOT HERE AND DEAD LIKE MY NEPHEW, YOU’LL START LIVING IN THE PAST AND KEEP TRYING TO CHANGE THE BAD FUTURE.

UNCLE OF BURHAN HASSAN
SPOKESMAN F THE SOMALI AMERICAN FAMILIES OF THE MISSING KIDS
Abdirizak Bihi
Bihi’s comment and willingness to stand up to CAIR gives me hope that at least a few Somalis appreciate America and want to assimilate.
* As for Jamal, I don’t know what’s up with him. We have extensively followed his escapades through media reports and frankly I don’t know what his game is.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
