U.S. recognizes Somalia govt as Muslim Brotherhood-linked president visits White House

And the American people should recognize just how much of their tax dollars are spent there, not to mention how much importation of Somali Muslims cost us all.

Somalia’s transformation was achieved first and foremost by the people and leaders of Somalia, backed by strong, African-led support. We also want to thank the African Union, which deserves a great deal of credit for Somalia’s success. The United States was proud to support this effort. We provided more than $650 million in assistance to the African Union Mission in Somalia, more than 130 million to Somalia’s security forces. In the past two years, we’ve given nearly $360 million in emergency humanitarian assistance and more than $45 million in development-related assistance to help rebuild Somalia’s economy. And we have provided more than $200 million throughout the Horn of Africa for Somali refugee assistance.

The President had a chance to meet President Obama earlier today at the White House, and that was a very strong signal to the people of Somalia of our continuing support and commitment.

Did anyone ask the American people if they wanted billions of their tax dollars to go to Somalians and others? Watch video and read it all via Remarks of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and President of Somalia Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.

…formal U.S. recognition of the new government paves the way for new flows of assistance both from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and other U.S. agencies as well as from international actors such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

“The fact that we recognize a government there will allow us to do things through USAID that we have not been able to do before. The fact that we recognize them as a legitimate government will allow the World Bank and the IMF to do things that they would not have been able to do before. This is major and it is significant,” the official said.

Mohamud and his team met with senior USAID officials as well as World Bank President Jim Yong Kim during their trip to Washington, U.S. officials said.

The senior U.S. official said the United States did not have any immediate plan to reopen an embassy in Mogadishu but indicated that this could also eventually follow Thursday’s announcement. U.S. policy on Somalia is currently handled by a special envoy based out of Nairobi.

The BBC has reported on Mohamud’s Muslim Brotherhood links, Somali election of Hassan Sheikh a ‘great step’,

Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, 56, is a civic activist who founded a university in Mogadishu and has worked for several national and international peace and development organisations.

He has links to al-Islah, Somalia’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is strongly opposed to al-Shabab.

They both want sharia so what exactly is the Somalia Muslim Brotherhood opposed to and will Mohamud prevent the implementation of sharia?

    New Somali President to US Somalis: Come back to Africa and help rebuild “your country”

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 20, 2013

    This is the most exciting news I’ve seen in a long time. The New Somali President, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, visited Minneapolis on Friday with Omar Jamal in tow (more on him later) and asked Somalis to return to Africa!

    Readers, this means that the pipeline of thousands of Somalis flowing from Africa to the US every year can now be stopped! And, reversed! Right!

    From AP at the Edmonton Journal (emphasis mine):

    MINNEAPOLIS – A day after the U.S. officially recognized Somalia’s government for the first time in two decades, President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud called on Somalis living in Minnesota to help rebuild their war-torn homeland.

    Mohamud spoke to about 4,000 people late Friday night at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Although most of his speech was in Somali, he said in English that it was, “the beginning of a new foundation.” [Who knows what he really said because it was all translated for the gullible press by Omar Jamal---ed]

    Omar Jamal, first secretary of the Somali Mission to the United Nations, said the president thanked the crowd in Somali and asked that they help rebuild the country with an emphasis on security, the economy and judicial system — either by returning to Somalia or from their homes in Minnesota. Minnesota is home to the largest Somali population in the U.S. [that 'from their homes part' means sending money which became a problem when US banks were told by the feds to stop the practice in the wake of Minneapolis Somali 'go to hell infidels' trial---ed]

    Jamal had travelled with Mohamud to Washington, D.C., where Secretary of State Hilary Clinton joined the Somali president on Thursday to announce the change in diplomatic relations. The U.S. recognition will help Somalia receive greater aid from the U.S. and international agencies.

    After Friday’s speech, Ilhan Omar said he walked away with the feeling that there was a plan in place to rebuild her homeland.

    “I felt like it was the first time in 20 years that we can see a light at the end of the tunnel,” said Omar, 30.

    Amira Adawe, 34, added that she hopes the U.S. government’s recognition of Somalia will open the door to widespread international support. The president’s visit solidified her desire to return there and do what she can.

    “It’s my country,” Adawe said. “I can’t wait to go back home and help.” [We have already spent so much money on Somalis, maybe Rep. Ellison could introduce a bill to fund their airfare home! It would probably prove more cost-saving than to pay for their education, housing, food stamps etc.---ed]

    Think about it, we paid for over 100,000 Somalis to come to the US and resettle and paid for their social services, education, etc.; we paid dearly (remember “Black Hawk Down”) in blood; we paid for the military training that has for now pushed Al-Shabaab/Al-Qaeda out of Mogadishu; and yet some of those youths we raised at taxpayer expense had earlier left the comfort of their homes in Minnesota to join the jihadists and then we paid for the terror trials. Is refugee resettlement a great program or what!

  2. Everything is great! We’ll pay your flight back so you can go home and build somalia into a greater country! Then shut the door on tis awful mistake of bringing these lazy, thieving, raping, murdering animals here!
