'I don't want to go back with him': Setpfather confessed to police he beat boy to death ..implementing Sharia law in America.


Seeing the boy's stepfather chasing after him, the neighbor helped the man, Ali Mohamed Mohamud, catch up with the child.The boy didn't want to go home with Mohamud."I told the boy, 'Daddy promises nothing is going to happen,'" the neighbor later told The Buffalo News."The boy said to me: 'No, he always says that.'"Less than six hours later, Abdifatah was dead, brutally beaten, and his stepfather, Ali Mohamed Mohamud, was under arrest.The boy was tied to a chair with duct tape, a sock stuffed in his mouth, and he was beaten with a stick or blunt object in the basement of their Guilford Street home, near the Broadway Market, authorities said.The stepfather was angry because the boy, a fifth-grader at the International Preparatory School on Clinton Street, had fallen behind in his homework, law enforcement officials said.The neighbor, a mother of young children, sobbed as she recalled how she intervened, persuading the boy to go with his stepfather and even drivingthem back to their house."Your daddy says everything will be OK," the neighbor recalled telling the boy, asking that her name not be published. "I may have been the last person to see that little boy alive."During the short ride home, she said, the stepfather offered repeated assurances that Abdifatah would be fine."I told the boy, 'You go home, and if something does happen, you let me know tomorrow morning,'" the neighbor said.Ten-year-old Abdifatah Mohamud was running for his life down Sycamore Street at about 5 p.m. Tuesday when a concerned neighbor stopped to try to help. Mohamud, 40, a native of Somalia who has been in the United States for a decade, was charged with second-degree murder. Police investigators were shocked over the viciousness of the beating, according to Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda, who struggled Wednesday to find words to comment on the case."Every homicide is bad, but it is particularly hard to deal with for first responders, police and others, when it is a 10-year-old child," Derenda said. "In talking to investigators, I was told it was one of the most grisly crime scenes that they can remember, and some have been here 40 years."Erie County Assistant District Attorney Thomas M. Finnerty, at Mohamud's arraignment Wednesday, told City Judge Diane Wray that Mohamud admitted beating his stepson to death."The defendant admitted he tied up his 10-year-old stepson, admitted that he put a sock in his mouth, put duct tape over the mouth and beat him to death with a stick or similar blunt object," Finnerty said.Ferry Fillmore District Police Officer Christopher Fields, responding to a call from the boy's mother of a missing person, entered 30 Guilford St. at about 10:40 p.m. Tuesday and searched the house.In the basement, he found the child's body, partially hidden under a blanket.Mohamud, a security guard who is employed by U.S. Security Associates and worked at The Buffalo News, fled from the house in a red Subaru Forester and called his work supervisor, asking him to meet him at the newspaper.The supervisor tried to find out what was wrong during the phone call, but Mohamud refused to say, according to a report the supervisor later filed.At 11 p.m., the two met at the newspaper, and Mohamud confessed to the killing, according to the supervisor's report."I have a lot of problems and killed one of my kids," Mohamud told the supervisor, according to his report.Mohamud had come to The News to remove his possessions from his work locker, the supervisor reported.Police in the area spotted Mohamud's vehicle parked near The News building and approached the Scott Street entrance.The supervisor told police that Mohamud was in the building and led them to him in the locker room. Mohamud then stood up, and police handcuffed him.At Buffalo Police Headquarters, Mohamud cooperated with Detective Sgt. James Lonergan and provided police with a statement "indicating his involvement in the death of his stepson," Detective Chief Dennis J. Richards said.But none of this could comfort the neighbor who had tried to help the boy she spotted running down Sycamore with his school knapsack.
"It wasn't normal," the neighbor recounted. "I was trying to pull over, but there was traffic behind me. Then I saw his father on the other side of Sycamore. He was running after him and trying to stop cars to get across the street and catch him."
When the traffic had finally passed her eastbound car on Sycamore, she swung around and drove up to the stepfather, heading toward Jefferson Avenue.
"I asked, 'What's going on?' and he said his son was running away and he was trying to catch him. He asked if I would give him a ride, and I did. He said he didn't want anything to happen to him.
"We spotted the boy on Jefferson, and he was trying to jump over a fence. The father got out of the car and held him by the hand. The boy said to me he wanted to go to a family member's house on Auburn Avenue.
"He said: 'I don't want to go back with him.' He would not sit in the back seat of the car with his father. He said he wanted to sit in [the] front seat next to me. I told him, 'You come home with me and we'll wait for your mother, or if you have the phone number, we'll call your family on Auburn.'"At that point, the neighbor, an immigrant from Africa like the Mohamuds, said the boy calmed down a little.By 5:20 p.m., she said, she had pulled up in front of the boy's house, and the stepfather and boy went inside.The neighbor sobbed Wednesday recounting the episode.Mohamud is married to the boy's mother, Shukri, and both have children from previous relationships for a total of six children, according to police, neighbors and acquaintances.Richards declined to comment on a motive, but neighbors said the father could be very strict, especially when it came to the youngsters doing their homework."The father wanted him to study and study. He told me, 'I check his homework every night, and his grades are going down,'" said Tariq Butt, whose family watched Abdifatah's two younger siblings after their brother's body was discovered.Butt, an acquaintance of the Mohamud family, said the stepfather had confided in him that he was upset with Abdifatah for falling behind in his homework."I always had this feeling that the father was strict," Butt said, and added that Abdifatah was a well-behaved youngster.Back on Guilford Street, as neighbors congregated throughout the day to discuss the death, Johnny Alexander, a longtime Guilford resident, offered this explanation for a killing that defied logic:"You just never know what's going on in people's homes."Mohamud is scheduled to return to City Court at 2 p.m. Monday for further proceedings. In the meantime, he is being held without bail in the Erie County Holding Center. Via Buffalo News

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.
