Northern Somali Unionist Movement (NSUM)

Press Release

The proponents of  “Somaliland”, a one-clan and self-styled in the North west of Somalia have been relentlessly propagating flimsy justifications and  hackneyed collections of false claims for the last 19 years, in order to get an international recognition for this clan-based entity. As no country has so far recognised this clan entity and therefore, out of sheer dismay and desperation, some of  “Somaliland´s” clique and namely the quasi-party opposition leaders have turned to Israel for recognition. Obviously it appears now that these members have recently contacted a low-level member from the Israel foreign office in London  and according to a local Israeli paper, the Israel government hinted that it was willing to recognise “Somaliland”.
Further, and according to the some of “Somalilands” newspaper, the Israeli newspaper of Haaretz Daily quoted that the Israeli government is eying the strategic importance of the Red sea and Horn. These Somaliland sources also claim that as Israel was the first among 35 countries that recognised “Somaliland” in 1960 when it received its independence from Great Britain, the Israeli government is now ready to mull a reinstatement of the recognition given to Somaliland in 1960.
While one can understand the excessive bid of the secessionists to sell a dead cause, what specially amazes all and particularly all Somalis is the shameless, unabashed and repetitive propaganda of mendacious mantras that have been typical of the desperate secessionists for the last few years.

It is no secret that these claims do not hold water and certainly no learned politician, privy to the international relationship, let alone the governments of 35 countries would have recognised, a transient administration in 1960 that was only to exist for four days and was to melt away in 1st July 1960 due to the unification of two administrations of the then British Somaliland Protectorate and Italian Somaliland. Also, one has to bear in mind that what was known as British Somaliland Protectorate had been a part of the Somali home, curved by the colonisers and had never been a distinctive state and had no separate flag in 1960. The only flag that was raised in 26 June 1960 was the 5-star blue flag which represented all Somali territories and for the record that flag was created by Mr Mohamed Awale who was hailing from southern part of the Somali home,  occupied by the Italians.

Again if the claims that 35 countries recognised the transient administration of the British Somaliland in 1960 were true, the records would have been available in the archives of both the UN and the 35 countries, mentioned and lately invented by the proponents of the secession.
Citing the above-mentioned acts of these clan-entity cliques, NSUM expresses its strongest condemnation to the attempts and actions of these self-interested and egoism-driven proponents of  “Somaliland” who immorally exploit the current and dire situation of Somalia and want to dwarf  and destroy our beloved country. NSUM also warns and reminds the international community that if this clan entity is recognised, and as a result Somalia, the most homogeneous nation in Africa and the world is divided, so the so-called Somaliland would sooner or later be divided and a subsequent chain reaction would not stop there but this would let the genie out of the bottle as what is sauce for the clan-entity of Somaliland goose is sauce for the other clans in the very north of Somalia as well as in the whole region.

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.
