|When the Islamic Courts appeared in Mogadishu everyone was happy, including myself. Finally! we thought, the 'men of God' are finally here to chase away the ruthless warlords. Sadly, the Courts lied to us poor Somalis. And through their propaganda machine they lied to the Arabs and the Muslim world, but they could not hide from Allah.
When they took over Mogadishu from the warlords the rest of Somalia was already at peace. By opting for violence, hard headedness, and recklessness, the Courts have not only perpertuated the misery of their people and nation, they missed a great opportunity.
The people who comprise this interim government are not aliens, they are their brothers. If the Courts are true Muslims they should not run after power or fame. And if they feel they are more learned than the warlords here's a chance for them: Admonish them. Remind them. Forgive them. Be the first to extend the hand. That is the high moral ground. That's the greatest jihad.
Shedding your people's blood and creating disorder is not Jihad. Wa billahi tawfiq wal hadaya.

|Unforuntely there is a lot of deception in religion, perhaps because its mankinds preception of what it should be, and man is not perfect or ever will be. Inside you know what is right and wrong, this is what we learn to truly listen to if we are wise. If it helps the world it is 'Spirit', if it helps us it is 'Ego'|

|Somalia is a hunting forest for all bogus agencies. No one takes them to account for their actions.
