USA based so called journalist called Aar impose obvious stripped hostility to Somaliland and its people as he all time generates unfounded misinformation and the interview that, this so called journalist had with Yusuf Budle was like than street chat.
I have an opportunity to watch an interview conducted by this so called journalist with Somaliland politician called Yusuf Budle. During the interview, every question asked by this journalist was a predication that Somaliland is a brink to collapse even though Somaliland is most stable in east African if not the whole Africa. This is not the first this so called demonstrate naked hostility towards Somaliland and its people. Equally Somaliland politicians who accept and make possible this so called journalist interviews with Aar are of same equal magnitude hostility like him. How anyone Somaliland can dare to accept an interview with from someone that his motto intention is spread unfounded lies against their country. For me Somaliland politicians who agrees to give an interview with so called journalist solely interested their voice been noticed by their society with the intention to get popularity when the reality disagrees their motto, as no one can attain popularity by insulting and misinforming about their country. Making propaganda against your country is a crime which is subject of punishment by law. M r. Budle claims as the chairman of national unity reform party which is title never ever exit both locally and externally. The interview that Mr. Budle had with Aar is worse than street chat. While providing an interview, Mr. Budle indicted his wish to handover some of our territorial integrity to foreign country. One of the questions this so called journalist asked to Mr. Budle is “isn’t true that Alshabab trained in Somaliland and that Somaliland provides payroll to Alshabab that operates in Somaliland.
I called misuse of democracy and issue that did not serve the shared interest of Somaliland people is against the territorial integrity sovereignty of Somaliland. Sovereignty means supreme and independent power for government that possessed a territory under their authority. Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” It is unpatriotic to give interviews with someone who is against the existence of your own country and your own people. Every one of us is a citizen, and citizenship carries responsibilities. Citizenship is more than an individual exchange of freedoms for rights; it is also membership in a body politic, a nation, and a community to be. The success of democracy depends, in the end, on the reliability of the judgments we citizens make, and hence upon our capacity and determination to weigh arguments and evidence rationally.” Your patriotism is not measured by what your country can do for you. It’s all about what you can do for your country for your own benefit and for the benefit of unborn generations. Citizenship is born at the moment when one man says to another is wrong for his country and his people. Citizenship is the status of a person recognized under the custom law as being a member of a nation. Citizenship is legally belonging to a nation. Citizenship means being a member of the society. Citizenship, good friends, good books are sleepy conscience and this is the ideal life. In conclusion, my whole intention is to avoid dealing with those against your entire existences and to recognize your true friends. We should not encourage and facilitate future interviews such so called journalist like Aar since declared unhidden hostility to somaliland and its people. Apart to the above, there are some somaliland websites both locally and externally based which every news they report from somaliland serves our external enemies as all the time all time news reports that make pleased to our external. Those guys fail to distinguish between being opposing somalilland goverment and serving an external enemies as our somaliland enemies takes and copies bad news which is on most of the times lies from these websites
