Somali government signs up US lobby group : Somali-American pm of somalia Mohamed’s government hired a powerhouse lobbying firm — former Sen. Alfonse M. D’Amato’s Park Strategies :War-saxaafadeed Dowladda FKMG ah oo howlgalisay Park Strategies si ay ugu ololeyso arrimaha shacabka Soomaaliyeed


Somali PM Mohamed’s government has hired a powerhouse lobbying firm — former Sen. Alfonse M. D’Amato’s Park Strategies — to help him make his case.
“We are working on a succession plan, the way forward, and that’s still in the works,” Mohamed said on his second visit to this country since taking the prime minister’s job.
Mohamed was employed with the  NY state Department of Transportation here when Somalia’s president, Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, selected him to serve as his prime minister, an appointment confirmed Oct. 31. PM Mohamed, a Somali native who resettled in Western New York in 1990, returned to his homeland to try to help bring order to a country plagued by violence and poverty.
Somalia’s government collapsed in 1991, and the transitional government that Mohamed joined has waged a fierce struggle with al-Shabaab, an Islamic militant group connected to al-Qaida.
Mohamed said these Somali terrorists pose as much of a threat to the world as those who found safe harbor — and prompted a U. S.-led NATO invasion — in Afghanistan.
He called for more political, military and financial support to deal with the insurgency.
“It is a common enemy, and we have to deal with that enemy collectively,” Mohamed said.
Last week, he caused a stir when he told the Security Council he believes al-Qaida soon might hijack oil tankers to use in their next terror attacks.
Somalia has engaged prominent American lobby group Park Strategies to lobby for the troubled country's interests in the United States, prime minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has confirmed.In a briefing to the media in Mogadishu after a trip abroad, Mr Mohamed said that strong advocacy in US corridors of power would benefit his administration as well as the wider Somalia public.It is the first time a Somali government has engaged a lobby group to restore the shattered image of a nation plagued by two decades of civil war, religious extremism and notorious piracy, among other socio-economic ailments.The prime minster's office had Monday issued a statement saying that Park Strategies was a "well known" and "respected entity" in the United States, according to the press officer in the PM's office, Garad Salad Hersi.Mr Hersi said that the group is directed by a former US Senator, Alfonse M. D'Amato and that it will campaign for the interests of the Somali people in the US."The firm will work on the restoration of diplomatic relations between Somalia and the US,” stated the press release. It added, “It will ascertain the independence and unity of Somalia."Further explaining the aims for engaging the firm, the statement asserted that it would refocus world attention on Somali issues.The prime minister insisted that almost all nations have lobbyists to advance their strategic causes. "We negotiated with and managed to convince Park Strategies to work for us at only 30 per cent of the cost due to our special circumstances," he said.
SomaliTalk.com, a largely Somali news web site had on March 14 said that Mr Mohamed’s government had hired a powerhouse lobbying firm.However critics have pointed out that the Somali government would be paying a monthly $20,000 fee to Park Strategies, which they say it cannot afford.

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.
