Although I am a firm believer in freedom speech, I was stunned to see the article titled “The better Memo to the Canadian premier Minister Paul Martin.” on your website.
Personally, I assumed that your website is pro-Somaliland and its causes but I found out otherwise. If the author remained objective and advocated unity then it is easy to swallow why you have posted his article. But please excuse my shameful ignorance and enlighten me about the purpose of the following paragraph from the author’s article:
“Besides that, it is quite well know to us (outsider may learn) Somalis that the people in the Regions of Awdal, Sool, Sanag and Togedheer are literally against the separation but they support the peaceful co-existence and Governance of the region. In addition to that, Somali people in Sool and Sanag consider them self freely as natural and administration wise as part of the Autonomous Punt land region of Somalia as well as the Great (Somaaliween) Somalia.”
The author speaks for regions that he probably never been to. Without factual backups he makes a claim and speaks on behalf of the population in those regions. Needless to say, this is the typical article that would appear on Hutu websites such as Puntiland.com, but I have never imagined that the opinion of a propagandist would be mistaken for freedom of speech and posted in Awdel website. I say Hutu websites because obviously if Puntiland.com belonged to a respectful Somali person, he/she would not have projected so much hatred towards Somaliland.
Moreover, while the author is advocating unity, he claims that Sool, and Sanaag are part of Puntiland-the Harti kingdom. This is a classic example of hypocrisy-a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He can’t have it both ways. The author should be either pro unity or he should trust his subconscious believes and remain loyal to his tribe. He preaches unity and Somaliwey yet by reading his article, one could easily see his fervent support for his tribal kingdom. “Beerka jecli, xaydha jecli”, which one do you want?
Please remove “the article” from your respectful website. And don’t get me wrong because I am not in any way, shape or form trying to suppress freedom of speech regardless of whether the author is pro or anti Somaliland. What I am against is the baseless propaganda and the individual that speaks on behalf of Sool, Awdal, Sanaag and Togdheer, while he is sitting at a coffee shop in the heart of Europe-namely Germany.
