My Take on Trump as a Somali American!

My Take on Trump as a Somali American!

After one of the most bitter and divisive campaigns in US history was concluded November 8, people in the United States including the Somali Americans are in a state of shock and disbelieve. Majority of those who were disappointed are moving to the next step which is watch and see what happens after he resumes the office in January. Donald Trump has made no secret of his agenda of undoing of Obama’s achievements including the Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care. His tone during his speech rallies was not easy to swallow for millions but that was not enough to turn the tide against him and now he is the president elect of the United States of America whether we like it or not.

Somali Americans are one of those groups who worried about their future under Trump administration. Rallies are taking place right after his election in many major US cities including Seattle which has second largest Somalis in the United States. I hear cry and lamentation on the radios, televisions, and social media sites, but not yet confronted one Somali who does such, and the reason maybe be we are used to disappointments. In fact, those few Somalis I have met just days before the election were indifferent who will win and even some were leaning toward Trump. “Oh Wow. Why?” you might say. People accuse Hillary while serving under Obama’s administration for the disaster that had been clouding over many Middle East Countries that have enjoyed peace during Bush administration who was thought worse when he invaded Iraq for no good reason.

Donald Trump has already shown a conciliatory tone during his victory speech and praised Hillary for the service she provided to the nation. Remember, their last public debate, Donald promised to put Hillary in jail if he wins. I am optimistic that Trump has forgiving heart and will bring peace to our suffering people in the Muslim world and jobs and opportunities to all Americans. He is not a liar and unlike Obama and Hillary he speaks straight forward and says out loud what is in his mind. He seems he has a big heart for everyone and as he said “wants the best for every citizen” including us.

Somalis in America have come to the United State to realize the American dream. Actor Barkhad Abdi, Minneapolis Council Member Abdi Warsame, and MN StateSenator Ilhan Omar are great examples for our over achievements in this country. We are accepted for who we are and we should have the confidence that we can achieve even bigger. We should not lose hope on the rhetoric during the campaign. Candidate Trump has also endured so much insults and now he is the most powerful man on earth. I believe we have not lesser skin than those on whom jokes were made. Whatever he said on Somalis during the campaign, should become thing in the past. I have met educated people who told me we, Somali, are the most resilient people on earth when they have seen what has been happening in Somalia time and after.

My fellows, Somali Americans, put aside the fear and move on with the majority Americans. You have endured so much here and home. Now we have the best chance to even farther our interest here and at home with Trump administration. We have to put our eggs in different baskets as they say and ride smoothly with the tide. It is time for us to establish a bigger union among us especially using our younger talented generation to become one of the leading Muslim figures in America. Let the sky be our limit accordingly to our goals and dreams, and that will only happen if we participate actively in business and the politics of this country. GOP is known for strong ethics such as keeping families together and valuing hard work and those are also the values we have known to care so much. Let us congratulate Trump and be part of his journey of Making America Great Again.

Geel Maxaas Indho-Kuul ka Kasaa!

Mohamud and Janice (2)Mohamud Yussuf

Kacaankii 21ka Oktoobar sannad kasta dalka waxbuu ku soo dhin jiray. Mashaariic badan baa xariga laga jari jaray. Dhaqaalaha imika dalka soo gala mid u dhow laguma riyoon jirin. Golihii shacabka oo lagu dacaayadeyn jiray “shimibiroyahow heesa” weligood codkooda ma iibsan. Mushaharkoodana 100 doolar ma dhameyn. Soomaali sharaf bay ku nooleyd. Cid la yiraahdo “beesha caalamka” ismaynaan aqoon. Xabashi iyo Kenyaati warkooda iskaba daa. Waxaas baa la yiraahdaa, “kud ka guur oo qanjo u guur”. Soomaali waa shacab maanka looga xaday Qabyaalad oo koodii waxtar ahba farta loogu fiiqo laguna yiraahdo “waxba ha ka maqal waa reer hebel”. In mid qoladooda ah uu kursiga ugu fadhiyo ayaa deeqda si kasta oo ay hurdadiisa u badan tahay ama waxtarkiisana u yar yahay. Soomaaliya sidaas bay sanooyin badan ahaaneysaa maxaa yeelay dadkeeda ayaan aqoon la xisaabtan oo magaca qoysku kala weyn yahay midka Qaran. Oo munaafaqqu u yahay Mu’min. Daacadkuna u yahay doqon iyo daciif. Oo Qodxo in loo dhigo ka jecel in xiriir loo goglo. Dad sida Soomaalida ah caalamka  laguma hayo. Reer Xamar ayaa hore warkii dhameeyey oo yiri, “Geel maxaas indho-kuul ka kasaa?” Ilaahow dadkan caqliga u toosi!

Duqowda Magaalooyinka Mareykanka oo Dowladdooda  Ka Codsaday iney Furto Xawilaadda Soomaalida!

Duqowda Magaalooyinka Mareykanka oo Dowladdooda Ka Codsaday iney Furto Xawilaadda Soomaalida!

Posted on 24 June 2015 by admin

SEATTLE (June 22, 2015) – Waxa magaaalada San Francisco baaq culus ka soo saaray Duqowda magaalooyinka dalka Mareykanka  kuwaasi oo madaxda  dowladda  Federalka ah ee Mareykanka ka codsaday iney xal u hesho arrinta murugsan ee xawilaadda taasi oo quudisa malaayiin dad ah oo ku nool dalka Soomaaliya iyo dalka geeska  Afrika. Waxa ay Mayor-ada codsadeen in muwaadiniita ku abtirsada Soomaali ee ka shaqeysta dalkan loo oggolaado iney ehelladooda  lacagaha u dirsadaan.

Bishii February, Bangiga Ganacsiga ee California ee  loo yaqaano the Merchants Bank of California waxa uu xiray dhamaan  xisaabihii Xawilaadaha Soomaalida ay lahaayeen kuwaasi ay ku adkaatay iney raacaan sharciga  lacag dirista ee  dalka  Mareykanka.  Tallaabadaa uu qaaday bangiga oo ah kii ugu dambeeyey waxa ay keentay iney nolosha  ku sii adkaatay kummanaan Soomaali ah oo  awalba la rafanayey quutal daruuriga.

Xeerka ay meel mariyeen Duqowda Magaalooyinka dalka  Mareykanka waxad ka  dheehan kartaa halkan Download Most Recent Classifieds.

, waxana hormuud ka  ahaa labada Mayor ee Seattle Mayor Ed Murray iyo Mayor Betsy Hodges ee Minneapolis. Minneapolis iyo Seattle waxa ay kala yihiin magaalada koowaad iyo labaad ee Soomaalida Mareykanka ku nool yihiin.

Hodges 2

“Sida  ummadaha kale ee  ku nool dalka  Mareykanka, Somali-American families waxa ay rabaan iney dhaqaale ku tukaakuleeyaan dadkooda ay jecel yihiiin.” Ayuu yiri Ed Murray. “Qaxootigan oo nolol  wanaagsan ka helay dalka Mareykanka  waxa ay sameynayaan wax mid kasta oo innaga mida uu u sameyn lahaa qoyskiisa. Dowladda Federalka  Mareykanka  waxa  iney  waddo u hesho in dadkaasu dirsadaan lacagta  xawilaadda ah”

Hodges

“Minneapolis waxa ay ku faataa  iney hoy u tahay dadka noocaa ah oo aad u tiro badan oo sidoo kale ah dad Soomaali oo nool oo kartina leh” ayey tiri Duqda Minneapolis, Betsy Hodges. “Iney awoodaan  iney lacag u dirsadaan dadka gudaha dalka Soomaaliya jooga waxa ay keeneysaa iney kuwa ay dhiigga  wadaagaan u suurto  gasho nolosha lagama maarmaanka  ah, waana inaannu taasi difaacnaa. Lacag  boorso lagu qaado xal ma aha. Waxan si adag u codsanayaa in Bangiyadu la shaqeeyaan hey’adaha lacagta  xawila  ee  Soomaaliyeed  si  dadka  shaqada  badan ee  deggan Minneapolis u awoodaan iney gacan siiyaan  qoysaskooda.”

In ka  badan labo million oo Soomaali ah ayey noloshoodu ku xiran tahay lacagaha ka yimaada  dibadda. Soomaaliya waxa soo gala qiyaas $1.3 billion oo xawilaad ah sannadkii taasi oo loo isticmaalo  cunto,  biyo, hoy, and waxbarasho. In la  xiro xisaabahaasi ama akoonadaasi waxa sii dedejiyey dowlad  la’aanta ka jirtay Soomaaliya taasi oo iyaduna sabab  u noqotay inaaney jirin Bangiyo Ganacsi.

“Soomaaliya  oo ah halka qof ka mida 3 qof uu cabi karo biyo la hubo caafimaadkooda, lacagta laga soo diro Mareykanka iyo dunida kale waxa  ay u dhigantaa dakhliga ugu weyn ee dalka soo gala,”  ayuu yiri Raymond C. Offenheiser, oo ah Madaxweynaha Oxfam America. “Lacagtani waxa  ay ka caawini doontaa Soomaalida iney ku iibsadaan  waxyaabaha asaasiga ah  oo ay noloshooda u baahan tahay. Dowladda Mareykanka waa iney dhug deg-deg ah u yeelataa Soomaalida  Mareykanka oo ah dad  howlkar ah oo la halgamaya  iney dadkooda ay jecel yihiin caawiyaan”

Waaxaha Arrimaha Dibadda iyo Maaliyadda  weli ma soo saarin hab ku caawinaya Bangiyada gudaha iney lacagahaasi tagaan  Soomaaliya, iyadoo isla markaana laga taxaddarayo nabadda  dalka Mareykanka. Bishii dhoweyd Duqa magaalada Seattle, Mayor Ed Murray waxa uu la kulmay Xoghayaha  Arrimaha Dibadda John Kerry waxana uu  ka  codsaday in ficil  laga  qaato arrinta murugsan  ee  Xawilaadda  Soomaalida.

Super Storm

Super Storm Sandy oo Seattle ku Fiicnaan Laheyd?

Posted on 04 December 2012 by admin

Sida Hurricane Katrina lagu arkay baabuurta biyuhu ka galaan engine-ka tuuris ayey ku dambeeyaan  oo iyaga oo dhan baa kharribma. Tirada baabuurta kharribantay waxa ay shaqo la’aan ku keeneen darawallo sidooda oo kale u fara badan oo la hubo in maalmo soo socda guri joog ahaan doonaan ama meelo kale u shaqo doonan doonaan.

Waxan jeclaan lahaa in dabeyshan ku habsan laheyd Yellow Cap Seattle maxaa yeelay waxa uu kambanigaasi maskaxda iyo jilbaha tiray Soomaali fara badan oo la’aantiis horurmar dhaqaale gaari lahaa, caafimaad hagaagsanna heli lahaa. Fadhiga faraha badan jilbaha oo kaliya ma dhibaateeyo, balse waxa uu dhibaateeyaa dhabarka oo isku noqda, sokor iyo dhiig kar ka dhasha dhaqdhaqaaq la’aanta. Waxa sidoo kale darawalladu wada xafidaan dhammaan waddooyinka magaalada oo isla markaana si aada maskaxda uga shaqeysiiyaan iyagoo ku dadaalaya iney addreska si dhaqsi ah ku gaaraan. Taasi waxa ay maskaxda ku keentaa iney shidaal badan cunto sida timaha oo dhaqsi u haada iyo indha oo arragooda soo yaraada.

Waxad u  maleyseysaa in darwarlnimadu tahay dabin Soomaali ku wada dhacday oo weliba intii ay iska waanin lahaayeen oo midba midka kale ku sii ridayo. Dabeecadaha Soomaalida ayey noqotay iney is lug jiidaaan oo xittaa haddii qofku hur ku jiro uu jecel yahay in lala huro. Runta waxa ay da’ yarta ku guubaaineysaa iney tacliinta ka war doonaan. Haddii waqti dheer aadan awoodin inaad waxbarasho sii waddo, waxa hubanti ah inaad heleyso waxbarasho waqti gaaban oo weliba lagaa bixinayo sida farsamooyinka cunto karinta, rooti dubista, alxanka, beero beerista guryaha iyo jidadka, caafimaadka, makaanik iyo faryaamo iwm. Maxaa kugu wareerinaya inaad maskaxdaada quruxda badan ku baabi’iso address xafidid oo haddii aad magaalada ka guurto meel kale aadan la aadi karin?

Caqliga laguu sheegayo macnihiisu waxa uu yahay inaad xisaabtanto. Haddii aad 10 sano taxi ama taraag waddo waxba kuuma kordhin, haddiise 10 sano aad shaqo kale iyo waxbarasho isku waddo wax tar wayn ayaad usoo hoysay naftaada iyo qoyskaaga iyo weliba waddankaaga. Haddaba adiga kala dooro anaad sanuud ururiso ama aad xar xaraf ku darto adigoo berri ka maalin aad dad kale wax sii bari karto. Caqliga fayow waxa uu dooranayaa inuu mustaqbal ka fakaro, midka gaabanna maanta oo kaliya ayuun buu arki karaa. Keebey Soomaalidu leedahay?

Kobci Aqoontaada

Kobci Aqoontaada!

Posted on 04 December 2012 by admin

Kobci aqoontaada, words of wisdom, iyo bogga su’aalaha Islaamiga ah waa bogag uu curiyey Mubarak Hadi oo ka mida dhallinyarada maskaxda wanaagsan ee ku nool Seattle. Sawirkan cajiibka ah waxannu ka soo xadnay boggiisa facebook si aannu ula qeybsanno dadka is dhiibay ee noloshooda ka quustay iney wax bartaan. Mubarak boggagaani uu curiyey waxa ay inoo sheegayaan tilmaamo aad u qiimo badan oo laga tusaale qaadan karo. Qofku waa innuu ku xisaabtamaa waqtiga qaaliga ah ee maalin kasta cimrigiisa ka sii go’aya. Fadlan raadso aqoon oo weliba waddanka Mareykanka qofkii jooga uu nasiib  u leeyahay in lacag lagu siiyo isagoo wax baranaya. Haddii kale ood afka meelaha taag taagto maalin kasta, marna aad isku luggoyso shaqo aan waxba kaaga kordheynin, haddow ha ilmeynin oo ha is qoomameynin. Kaashka yuusan ku sirin. Xisaabtan oo isu miisan shaqada aad qabaneyso oo is weydii lacagta ka sokow maxaa aqoon ah ee kaaga kordhaya, ama haddii shaqadaasi cimrigaaga ay soo gaabineyso oo adigoon da’deeda gaarin ay tahay mid bidaar iyo cirro kugu soo kordhineysa. Haddaad talo u baahan tahay la soo xiriir Mubarak Hadi ama Runta inkastoo aaney sahlaneyn si aad ula kulanto maxaa yeelay waqtigooda qaaliga ah af-leeris kuma lumiyaan.

Ciid Wanaagsan Mar Kasta Soomaalida Seattle!

Posted on 31 October 2012 by admin

Soomaalida ku nool Mareykanka waxa lagu amaanay in aaney si cabsi ku jirta ugu dabaal degin ciidahooda, una muujiyaan shicaarkooda diiniga ah. Cumar Xasan iyo qoyskiisa waxa ay maalintii ciidda ku tukadeen Masjidka Al Noor ee saaran waddada MLK Jr. Way. Salaadda Cumar halkaa ku tukaday waxa u dheereyd inuu dadka Muslimiinta ku guubaabiyey iney u codeeyaan qodobka 1240 ee wax u taray iskuulada gaarka ah, iyo iney sidoo kale ka hortagaan ansaxinta qodobka 74 ee banneyanaya waxa lagu sheegay “is-guursiga” dadka isku nooca ama jinisiga ah. Cumar waa aqoonyahan ay qalbigiisa ka buuxdo xishood iyo damiir Islaanimo iyo Soomaalinimo. Noociisa lagama helo bulshada Soomaaliyeed, balse su’aashu waxa ay tahay bulshadeenu ma qaddariyaan qof doonaya inuu wax la qabto.

Taariikhada Cumar iyo howlihii uu u soo qabtay bulshada waxanu ku soo bandhigi  doonaa boggageena dambe. Ciidaha agagaarka Seattle waxa inta badan camira Soomaalida oo ah dadka ugu badan ee Muslim ah ama ka yimid qaaradda Africa.
