Brother admits 'honour crime' revenge assault :A brother avenged his sister's sharia divorce in an "honour attack" on her former husband,

A brother avenged his sister's sharia divorce in an "honour attack" on her former husband, a court heard.Mohammed Olaad and two others went to the victim's home and repeatedly punched him.
One of them was armed with a bottle, which was used to strike the victim and caused blood to splatter up a door.The victim, who suffered two cuts to his head needing stitches, at one stage lost consciousness during the attack.
Simon Ash, prosecuting, told Leicester Crown Court: "The prosecution say it's in the nature of an honour crime."It was premeditated and the motivation was the Sharia divorce that took place between the victim and Olaad's sister."A bottle was used by one of the assailants, but it's accepted it was not taken to the scene."Olaad (20), of Uppingham Road, Leicester, and co-accused Ali Ali (21), of Toronto Close, St Matthew's, both Somali nationals, admitted causing actual bodily harm on October 10.Both received nine months imprisonment, suspended for two years, and were ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work.They were also each ordered to pay £250 compensation to the victim and £250 costs.The third attacker is believed to have left the country.The incident happened after Olaad made a supposed amicable arrangement with his sister's ex-husband to return some property to him following the divorce under Islamic law. The three men went to the man's home in Wharf Street North, St Matthew's, Leicester, and were let in by his flatmate.The victim turned up later and, after initial greetings, he was attacked.The flatmate sought help on the street from a passer-by, who went in to the building and shouted out.The three attackers then left the scene of the attack.The victim, who is believed to be in his early 30s, suffered cuts and bruises.He still suffers from bad headaches and dizzy spells.Mr Ash says: "He no longer trusts people and has bad dreams."Sally Bamford, in mitigation for Olaad, said: "Things got out of hand."There's some background to the matter not simply the divorce and the complainant misled his sister as to his age and the fact he had a previous relationship and children. Olaad reacted badly to his sister's hurt feelings."Olaad was said to have acted out of character and is studying mechanical engineering with good career prospects, she said.Philip Gibbs, for Ali, said: "He regrets getting involved."Sentencing, Judge Ebraham Mooncey said: "You took offence to something that happened and in effect decided to punish the complainant for something you thought he'd done wrong.
"He was subjected to a ferocious attack causing serious injuries from which he's still suffering the effects. If you have a grievance, you shouldn't take the law into your own hands.
"If it's a community matter, then take it up with the leaders of your community. I accept you're both remorseful and are now leading sensible lives." Leicester Mercury

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.
