Exactly Who In America Has This Insatiable Appetite for Somali Immigration?

 Remember My Information


Last week started off with another Muslim terrorist attack, this one on the campus of Ohio State University in Columbus. Shortly before 10 a.m. Monday a Somali immigrant, a student at the university, deliberately drove his car into a group of people, injuring several. Then he got out and stared stabbing bystanders with a butcher knife.

Fortunately a campus cop was nearby. He shot the Muslim dead.

There were thirteen victims altogether: three with broken bones, one with possible internal injuries, the rest listed as having moderate or minor injuries.

Could have been worse.

The terrorist was identified as Abdul Artan. His age was given as 18, but that’s obviously a lie. In photographs he looks to be at least thirty, with a well-developed case of male-pattern baldness.

The incident is mainly noteworthy for illustrating the utter absence of any sense or reason in our immigration and so-called “refugee” policies.

Before proceeding, let me justify that adjective “so-called.”

Abdul Artan moved with his family from Somalia to Pakistan in 2007. [Deceased Ohio State attacker identified as Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan, ,, November 29, 2016 ]Seven years after that, in 2014, he was admitted to the U.S.A. as a refugee and was granted legal permanent residency.

So after seven years in Pakistan, how was he a refugee? Is Pakistan a country people need refuge from? A country Muslims need refuge from?

If it is, we’re in trouble. The population of Pakistan is 202 million. If any significant portion of them need refugee status, that’s millions of people.

In fact, there is no reason to grant refugee status to anyone from Pakistan. Sure, the place is dirt-poor and politically corrupt, but there’s no civil war or famine. Nor is there any threat of Pakistan being destroyed by external agency: it’s a nuclear power, for crying out loud.

So in what sense were Artan’s family, resident there seven years, in what sense were they refugees?

People often say, concerning genuine Muslim refugees, driven from their homes in places like Syria, that their brother Muslim nations should take them in. Well, in the case of the Artans, assuming they genuinely were fleeing from something or other in Somalia — a questionable assumption in itself, given the history of fraud in these cases — even assuming that, Muslim Pakistan did indeed step up and take them in.

How did they then become America’s responsibility?

The answer is that the U.S.A. has an insatiable appetite for Somali immigrants. Ann Corcoran has dug out the numbers over at Refugee Resettlement Watch. We’ve taken in eight thousand Somalis so far this year. Last year it was nine thousand. Year 2014 it was also nine thousand. Clicking back through the years from there: eight thousand, five thousand, three thousand, five thousand, four thousand, two and a half thousand.

That last low number was for 2008, when family reunification was suspended after the State Department tried out a DNA testing program that exposed widespread fraud — strangers claiming to be family members.

The suspension was annulled in 2009, with no further effort to reduce fraud, after the Obama administration came in. [Fraud in the Refugee Family Reunification (Priority Three) Program,, February 3, 2009]

Continuing to scan backwards, 2007 we took in seven thousand Somalis, the previous year ten thousand, then ten thousand, thirteen thousand, two thousand, 242, …

Whoa, what happened there? Only 242? Oh, that was 2002, the year after 9/11.

Yes, incredibly, we actually cut back on importing Somali Muslims the year after 9/11. The cutback only lasted a few months, though.

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: the most astounding statistic of the 21st century is, that the U.S.A. has taken in more Muslims for settlement in the 15 years since 9/11 than it did in the 15 years before.

Not that we were exactly slack before, certainly not in the case of Somali Muslims. Ann’s numbers show that, as long ago as the Clinton administration we took in 36,000 Somalis.

And these are Somalis: the group, of all Muslim groups, with the highest proportion of swivel-eyed fanatics and the lowest proportion of persons with any useful skill or literate in anything but Islamic mumbo-jumbo.

Yet, as those numbers show, the U.S.A. has an insatiable appetite for more and more of them.

When I say “the U.S.A.,” of course, I don’t mean the ordinary people of America. Nobody cares what they want.

The appetite belongs in the first place to the refugee importers, the so-called Voluntary Agencies, who get vast grants of federal money to aid them in their efforts, and who pay their executives grand salaries; and in the second place to Midwestern meatpacking and food-processing companies wanting cheap labor.

It’s all a nice little money racket dressed up in humanitarian language.

The precise Voluntary Agency involved in Artan’s case was Catholic Charities of Dallas. [Email them] [Catholic Charities Resettled Ohio State’s Somali Attacker,by Michael Patrick Leahy,, November 29, 2016] They will not, of course, be held responsible for the actions of their protégé. Nor will anyone be called on to explain how the mass importation of African Muslims helps the mission of the Catholic Church.

Monday’s attack also brought out the sanctimonious non-judgmentalism of our Goodwhite elites. One of those more seriously hurt was 68-year-old emeritus professor of engineering William Clark. [Send him mail] Quote from him, speaking the day after the attack:

Before I pass judgment on this young man, I would like to see exactly what the circumstances are and exactly why he took the course of action that he chose.

Ohio State University Professor Injured in Attack: ‘We’re Still a Great University’, November 29, 2016

The circumstances! The root causes! It wasn’t Mr. Artan’s will, his agency, that brought about those injuries and his own death, you see; it was those pesky circumstances.

Members of victim groups have no agency. They are the helpless playthings of circumstance.

I haven’t so far seen anyone quoted as saying that as horrific as this attack was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, that would be worse.

However, I’ve no doubt that somebody, somewhere, has said it.

  2. Meat packing, or any other, industry can bring in dirt cheap labour from multitude poor countries. Why Somalia, the failed hotbed of Islamic terror country?
    There is a one horse town in the Midwest where the Immigration & Naturalization Services has a large office handling all immigration matters. This one horse town has the highest concentration of one tribe per 100 residents in the US and they all work for INS. Go figure out.

  8. Surprised (((you))) had such a glaring omission.

  9. In the mental calculus of the left, Somalia isn’t a dysfunctional hellhole because it is populated by Somalis. Rather, the root cause must be a fuzzy mix of bad luck, post-colonial trauma, & more recent behind the scenes meddling by the CIA, other sinister western forces. Moreover the more downtrodden an immigrant is, the greater the warm n fuzzy rush for the resettlement agency. Sure these refugees are sure fire instaDems, but don’t underestimate the drug-like kick that the SJW-hive gets from “rescuing” these refugees (despite externalizing the costs to the taxpayer).

  10. Tell that to the people on who, when confronted with ISIS atrocities constantly look for who is ‘really’ behind those atrocities.

  18. “Exactly Who In America Has This Insatiable Appetite for Somali Immigration?”

    Simple question, simple answer–Capitalists and their hirelings, knowing and unknowing.

    Nor are they picky about the whence–it all translates into cheap labor.

    There is one other source of some limited immigration, as with the Chechens who were recruited, educated, supported and so forth by the CIA and then blew up the Boston Marathon.

    This probably pertains to a certain selection of Somalis.

    The Chechen brothers were a misfire–they were obviously recruited ultimately to blow up things Russian.

    The CIA also engineered the immigration of the first attempted bombers of the World Trade Center–you remember that, don’t you? And joining them was a suspicious FBI informant.

    Such short memories.

  20. So after seven years in Pakistan, how was he a refugee? Is Pakistan a country people need refuge from? A country Muslims need refuge from?

    Actually, since last summer, the Pakistani government has been threatening to deport 1.5 million Afghan registered refugees and an additional million unregistered refugees due to alleged terrorist connections. Some of these people have been in Pakistan since the early 1980s. If the Pakistanis feel this way about Afghans –their next door neighbors and close cultural cousins– I doubt they have any special sympathy for Somalis.

    But, I agree that Americans have good reason to question the wisdom of the current policy of Somali refugee resettlement in the US. Actually refugee “advocates” should be asking themselves these questions too. For example, how is it possible that after 25 years of civil war and mass exodus to the far corners of the world, the population of Somalia is now almost twice as high as when the fighting started back in 1991? What sustains the violence and lawlessness and how can they still afford to buy arms and ammunition? And most importantly for us: as it stands today, is the resettlement program actually helping to create a more peaceful and sustainable future in Somalia itself? Because surely that’s the ultimate goal and best hope for the vast majority of Somalis, who (at least for now), don’t have the option of fleeing to Anchorage, Minneapolis, or even nearby Kenya in most cases. There have to be more pragmatic ways to manage the fall-out from these types of seemingly unending conflicts.

  21. Christianity, lol

    Well, that’s certainly the safe answer. Won’t get you bit by leftists.

    Of course, America, back in the pagan era between 1924 and 1964, allowed far fewer non-whites to immigrate (and in the far more Godless days of the early Republic, limited immigration to free white persons). But then there was the great Christian revival of 1964, and thus, the non-white deluge.

  22. They’re good at shooting down American choppers.

    And it only cost ‘em about 500 lives.

  23. it is just more cannibals for the white women race traitors to drool over. in a few years most of them will have white wives and or mulatto kids. this will not stop until the whites are gone forever and the sad part is over half the whites gleefully embrace their genocide

  24. “Traditional Merkins”, jeje.

    Like Jay Gould, to whom is attributed the immortal, “I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half.”

    Short on Lenin, even the Right Wing Capitalists and Imperialists who are Democrats and Progressives never appreciated the insight of Gould, or of whoever said it, and least of all the imbecilic Trokskyites.

    One can rest assured, however, that is it written in gold leaf letters and stored in a platinum box taken out once a year in some semi-Masonic ritual by the owners at Yale or on Wall Street.

    Y’all enjoy the spectacle of the Magic Negro followed by the Magic White Man, now, y’hear?

    I have a suggestion. Since Somalians want to live anywhere but Somali , we could let them all emigrate to Sweden , a country that can’t get enough of them anyway . In their stead a lottery could be had to outsiders to found a new nation state , or a homesteading scheme , or a place for Boers and white South Africans to move . The only requirement for this experiment would be that the new citizens be neither Muslim or African . It would be open to all others and a set number would be arrived at for total immigration. It would be a grand experiment and Ill be damned if within a generation Somalia would go from a place people ran away from to a place people ran to.

    The movement of Muslims to the west is sheer suicidal insanity. Muslims can’t hurt people in the west if they cannot get into the west. Physical impossibility. The Bush administration would have served the safety and security of America incomparably more had they simply ended all Muslim entrance to the USA (immigrants and “refugees”) then by their senseless attack on Iraq.

  28. It is obvious that those who bring the immigrants here deeply hate white Protestant Americans, which are the ethnic groups that founded America. Their bigoted attack on European Protestant immigration was successful in the 1965 passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which was pushed through Congress with the efforts of Emmanuel Cellar (Jewish), Jaccob Javits (Jewish) and Ted Kennedy (Catholic), among others. All the Jewish organizations of America support open borders and illegal immigration and does the Catholic Church.

    False. I guess not being well-traveled does cripple ones analytic skills.

    Pakistan has tons of refugees due to internal Islamic prosecution. Those found to belong to ‘heretical’ sects of Islam are prosecuted intensely. Chances are if he was Sufi or Ahmedia (Pakistan being predominately Sunni), he was going to be prosecuted like a mofo.

    There is a decent case to be made that he’s a plant charged with sowing division in the alt-right, with the help of trolls like you who mock and insult our fellow travelers

    Is there some kind of “problem” with sowing “division” in the alt-right? Why would that be? Why would it be any “wronger” than the alt-right sowing “division” among the saner elements of the admittedly stupid general populace?

    You ain’t got a holy cause there, wackadoodle. It’s just more spin-dizzy blue-sky nonsense. Alt-right has a tendency to believe that it’s got a holy war of righteousness going against the opinions and beliefs of the rest of the population. You don’t.

    Expel the Mexicans, Arabs, new Africans and Asians, and that will fix things. I guarantee it. You whistling noodle-noggins and your moronic cries of “It’s genetics, Mr. Wizard!” will return to being historical footnotes.

  36. There is a war going on. White people around the world are oppressed by people not white to the point that it should be called a war. Whomever is the Leadership must take this into consideration and do whatever needs to be done to assist white people so we are not totally destroyed by the destruction of our nations. Bring the armies we have scattered all around the world home, deport the illegal aliens and do something about all the immigrants who don’t want to assimilate, who follow after the religion of Islam. We need to find a place for the duel citizens we have here and it must not be in Leadership roles. If white people do not come together and get their act together their children are as good as goner’s in the coming world they will be forced to live in. The girls nothing but breeding stock to offset the ugliness of the none-white people, the boys, punching bags for the none-white males who from birth are taught by their mother’s to hate white people, to hurt white people every chance they get. If something is not done today, now, this minute, the next five years will bring the tidal change that will overwhelm white people to a point they will be hunted down and slaughtered. Yeah, this is real, yeah, you read it right, yeah, we better get our act together yesterday. Shut the Federal Reserve down, forfeit our debt, bring our military home, start our own industrialization, from the jump. Make our own money, our own products, push the Jews and the Muslim out of our Government, return our nation to its Christian values, demand of the immigrants that they speak English, protect our borders, like we should, like we are supposed to, like our Constitution says we should. The end of all our problems will then be near to finished. Jews and Muslims chase after, worship, Religion’s, and Leadership, that demands all people not like them be killed, people not killed are to be made slaves of the Jews and Muslims; this is what their religions insist on, this is what their Leadership promises to do- to US, no if ans or buts about it. My gawd, what is wrong with you white people not Jews, not Muslims, your death is right in front of you, advertised, the main topic of discussion on the television, in the movies, in the religious centers of the Jews and Muslims. What the hell, Jesus ran the money changers out of the temple, I am sure this means something! If you are too lazy to do it for yourself, do it for the generation of children you have crippled, so they are unable to defend themselves. WAKE UP – YOU ARE BRAINWASHED!

    One of the interesting things about life is a species can have very different behavioral patterns from a closely related species while being similar(in certain regards) to a species that is very different.

    Consider. Lions are far more closely related to tigers than to wolves, yet lions are social animals like wolves whereas tigers are solitary.

    And humans are much more closely related to bears(intelligent mammals) than to bees(or ants) — creatures without consciousness — , but humans are closer to bees(and ants) than to bears in that both humans and bees(and ants) are social animals that create and maintain complex networks and organizations. Humans are aware of their activities, whereas bees(and ants) are not, but both species rely on complex social networking and cooperation.

    Humans are closer to chimpanzees than to ducks, but their human sexual behavior(excluding that of Negroes) is closer to that of ducks than to chimps. Ducks may not exactly mate for life, but when a male duck and a female duck form a pair, they tend to stick together for a long spell. In contrast, chimpanzees are wild in screwing any female they can find.

    And in some ways, we can find this biological dissonance even when we consider human races. All human races are part of one species and far closer to one another than to any other species. Yet, when we look at blacks and Asians, one might say black mating patterns are like those of chimps whereas Asian mating patterns are more like those of ducks or geese.

    Negro emotions are wild and ‘funky’, so blacks tend to be uninhibited. This means, when allowed to act free, naturally wild Negro ways encourage and embolden all Negroes to act wilder and wilder, and soon, the Negro men are high-fiving one another about how many ho’s they done. And black women are ‘twerking’ their booties to attract more men to hump them. The lack of shame in Negro emotions make Negros act like chimpanzees.

    In contrast, even though Asians are, in terms of DNA, much much closer to blacks than to ducks or geese, their high level of inhibition makes them reluctant to act wild and jivey. And the cumulative critical mass of inhibitionism among the Asian race means that if some individuals get too rowdy and aggressive, he or she will be shunned and pressured to conform to the norm. So, Asians end up acting more like ducks and geese.

    So, if the critical mass of Negroness encourages all Negroes to shake the booty, the critical mass of Asian-ness pressures all Asians to toe the line.

    So, there is no guarantee that just because a race or species is closer to your own, its behavior will be necessarily close to the norm of your social/racial/speciesial order.

    Indeed, consider how white folks and blacks folks are more closely related to one another than to golden retrievers or baboons, but white folks have emotions that are closer to golden retrievers while blacks have emotions closer to baboons.

    But then, such biological dissonance can show up in physical attributes too. Cats are closer to pigs(fellow mammal of high intelligence) than to lizards(cold blooded dumb reptile), but the claws of a cat are closer to reptile claws than the hooves of pigs.

  42. Explain the “decent case” that Anglin is a (fed?) plant, please.

  49. Santa Ana didn’t have tens of millions of paisans on “our” side of the border to help him.

  50. You are correct, sir.

    With a nationwide requirement that all people show proof of citizenship — such as a US Passport — in order to vote in federal elections, the Dems would have lost many “close” elections for president, us senate, and us house over the past couple decades especially.

    I realize that many states and localities can’t be trusted to enforce such a requirement — yeah, Mexifornia, I’m talking to you — so we’ll need federal employees dispatched to enforce it at every freeking polling place in the country. It is a sound investment that will pay financial and cultural dividends many times over.

    It is as if they have priority boarding passes into nice nations. It would be nice to only get nice immigrants. For those who don’t know- Just about all Somalis come in as refugees. They are getting citizenship and building to critical mass, so must be importing in relatives and family by now via chain immigration. But I do not have the numbers

    Somalis are black and the vast majority of Muslim nationalities despise blacks. In Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, the word used to refer to blacks is synonymous with “slave.”

    Corvinus, you’re correct about war. Obviously there was a lot of war that basically involved which aristocrats\royal families would lord it over which pieces of ground. And later “religious wars” which actually were pretty much the same with just some religious pretext or pattern of alliances. (For example the Catholic French on the Protestant side of the nominally “religious war” 30 Years War.)

    However, you’re completely wrong about “inbred tribes”. You can call them that but it reduces “tribe” and “inbred” to have basically no meaning. You could make a case for some “off the beaten track” folks like Highland Scots. But in fact, the reality–and indeed one of the many important reasons that Europe is so much better than the world’s hellholes–is that there were *not* inbreeding and not a bunch of tribes. The Church forbade\discouraged cousin marriage and in any given geographic area people–outside the Jews (who clung to their separate tribalism) people bred into one people. And these coalesced into nations. Pretty much everyone–outside of Jews–who lived in Western Europe in 1000 and has surviving descendants today is one of my ancestors–generally many times over. This would not be true–or to a much less extent–in many other tribal or caste societies.

    If you’re going to do the “Europe was just like that” trope, you should at least pick the parts that actually were “just like that”–and not the parts where Europe is in fact very different in culture from other regions of the world–or it’s just useless SJW nonsense.

    Kind of like those who talk about “good whites” and “bad whites”? I’m just trying to keep up with phrases that lack clarity.

    HOWEVER, Europeans were in part the result of tribes who had inbred. Pre-christian tribal Anglo-Saxons married 1st and 2nd cousins with some regularity, with proof of this phenomenon coming from 600 A.D. They were granted exemptions from the RCC’s cousin marriage bans. The marital customs among the Germanic tribes and the Franks were particularly troublesome for Pope Boniface during this same time period, with extramarital fornication between relatives and subsequent offspring being sired. That is the reality.

  80. Hey Ace,

    Somalis are good at other things too, though they are tough fighters; having given the Ethiopians, Italians and British hell in the early 20th century:,-Britain-and-Italy-3.9

    They are also a deeply spiritual people – but most don’t give that any value these days.

    Anyway, Somalia is a completely failed nation-state; good for them. That foreign model of organization is in conflict with their needs and they are right to jettison it. Things are better there in a decentralized, inter-linked tribal confederacy:
    “Such was the case with Somalia’s government, which did more harm to its citizens than good. The government’s collapse and subsequent emergence of statelessness opened the opportunity for Somali progress. This paper investigates the impact of anarchy on Somali development. The data suggest that while the state of this development remains low, on nearly all of 18 key indicators that allow pre- and post-stateless welfare comparisons, Somalis are better off under anarchy than they were under government.”

    In fact, it is not lawless as some people think and quite capable of establishing a relatively peaceful society – under their terms:
    “As for Somalia being lawless, Van Notten, a Dutch lawyer who married into the Samaron Clan and lived the last dozen years of his life with them, specifically challenges that portrayal. He explains that Somalia is a country based on customary law. The traditional Somali system of law and politics, he contends, is capable of maintaining a peaceful society and guiding the Somalis to prosperity. Moreover, efforts to re-establish a central government or impose democracy on the people are incompatible with the customary law.”

    In fact, a lot of the violence stems from the efforts to establish a nation-state which will axiomatically establish the hegemony of one tribe over all the others…not good.

    One may say, well if it’s all that good, why don’t they move back?

    Well, some of them are actually advocating that:
    “It might seem hard to believe, since you only hear about bombings and violence from mainstream media outlets, but there’s actually an influx of Somali diaspora returning back home, following many continuous years of improved safety and infrastructure development.
    Most of the country north of Mogadishu is relatively peaceful, with the self-declared state of Somaliland in the north having no crime to speak of. Terrorism is really only a problem in certain southern Somali cities nowadays, and even that is sporadic at best. You just have to know what areas to avoid…But there are so many things to love about living here. We have access to fresher fruits, vegetables and meat than you could ever get in the States. All natural ingredients make the food spectacular, with no added chemicals, pesticides or hormones. The air is unpolluted and fresh, the weather is nothing short of perfect, and the people are easy going. The pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to living in Somalia.”

    “The sound of bullets that was once so common in the Somali capital of Mogadishu has been replaced by the noise of construction. New buildings and business are emerging from the carnage and lawlessness that pervaded the east African country for more than two decades.”

    Let’s keep our hands off of them, not flood them with guns or try to establish a ‘friendly’ dictatorship. Just give them a clap and tell them; “Well done guys, we wish you the best! And can our businesses help you with any development? ” It’ll keep both us and them happy. And, given the description in the article from a first-hand account, I think European countries should feel no remorse about repatriating troublesome Somalis. In fact, if they cause trouble in Somalia, they will find that the tribal elders have far less tolerance for hooligan behavior than the Swedes do.

    “According to official census returns from Roman Egypt (first to third centuries CE) preserved on papyrus, 23·5% of all documented marriages in the Arsinoites district in the Fayum (n=102) were between brothers and sisters. In the second century CE, the rates were 37% in the city of Arsinoe and 18·9% in the surrounding villages.”

    This incident isn’t the first to befall meat processing plants owned by the Rubashkin family in the last few years. The plant in Postville, which opened in 1987, has been the target of several campaigns alleging inhumane slaughter practices and labor rights violations. Last month, the slaughterhouse was fined $182,000 by the Iowa Division of Labor for a broad range of health and safety violations, including failure to provide workers with proper safety training and to label toxic chemicals. AgriProcessor’s Postville plant has been under scrutiny for its labor record since 2006…

  91. Maybe if the West stopped dumping toxic and nuclear waste off Somalia’s shore and stopped stealing their fish, Somalians might not want to leave their country?

    Allegations of the dumping of toxic waste, as well as illegal fishing, have circulated since the early 1990s, but hard evidence emerged when the tsunami of 2004 hit the country. The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) reported that the tsunami washed rusting containers of toxic waste onto the shores of Puntland, northern Somalia.

    “Somalia has been used as a dumping ground for hazardous waste starting in the early 1990s, and continuing through the civil war there,” he said. “The waste is many different kinds. There is uranium radioactive waste. There is lead, and heavy metals like cadmium and mercury. There is also industrial waste, and there are hospital wastes, chemical wastes—you name it.”

    But let’s not let reason and facts get in the way of hating some people based on our gut instincts of fear, ignorance and hate.
    After all, we’re America and we’re indispensable, so we can dump our waste anywhere we want, then settle back and stare at our 55″ HDTV and swill lite beer, after all, we’re trying to lose a few pounds!

    First all, the reason Somalis are invited in is to produce reliable Democrat voting blocs, they are settled wherever white population groups are, this is pretty much the only real reason they are brought in. Second, if you are able to somehow ignore this fact, Somalia is not some kind of giant radioactive dump, the reason Somalis leave their land is because they cannot produce successful societies. Third, this “oh they dumped radioactive waste” is just a long list of excuses I have heard them all so don’t bother repeating them. In the end what the real intent of the mass migration is always the same thing – for white nations to become non white.

    When we lacked an official navy, that’s the same thing we did to defy the fearsome British fleet. They should not be called pirates, they should be called privateers that are guarding their coastal waters:
    “The Americans responded to the situation with the time-honored practice of privateering. American privateering activity during the American Revolution became an industry born of necessity that encouraged patriotic private citizens to harass British shipping while risking their lives and resources for financial gain…”

    We would consider any vessel dumping hazardous waste off our coastline as a legitimate target.

    When America first started on the path towards open borders and free trade in the mid 1960s, it coincided with a shift in foreign policy. The big new idea in foreign policy was that if you let in more non-white immigrants and lower trade barriers, then the non-white world will learn how wonderful free market capitalism is and will reject communism and state capitalism. The theory is of course bollocks, as China, Cuba and Vietnam have amply demonstrated, but it still holds a lot of appeal among right-wing liberal elites.

    I think we need to move past this “Somalia is violent” theme. People who think it is violent haven’t been keeping track of latest progress especially since after the recent famine (which almost always introduces violence into a desparate population). No need to keep swinging at straw men.

    “Once a no-go area for commercial airlines, Mogadishu is now receiving daily flights again. Restaurants, taxi companies, employment agencies, dry cleaners, gyms, real estate offices and fast food courts are springing up throughout the capital and in other cities in the country.
    The economy is being accelerated by growth in livestock and fisheries and a resurgent private sector, notably in the services industry, which includes telecommunications, construction and money transfer. “If improvement in security continues, the entrepreneurial private sector will continue to be the most dynamic contributor to economic growth,” says an upbeat Mr. Zandamela…In a sign of Somalia’s growing stability, Kenya, Somalia and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2013 reached an agreement for the voluntary return of refugees to Somalia.”

    “Expatriates return to Somalia from Minnesota and elsewhere to help their country emerge from anarchy and chaos”
