  • The Misiterpreted Brainstorimg

    Posted by Sawnews.tk on February 5, 2010

    When some Gadabursi intellectuals in Minnesota brainstormed the imminent dangers facing the Gadabursi community, such as the land tension of both boarders, the uneven power sharing in Somalia and Somaliland, and the lack of common guidance towards life, they realized the enormity of the peril and concluded that it warrants an immediate in depth Gadabursi community dialogue. They called for a meeting to include more of the North America Diaspora for further brainstorming. Unfortunately, some of the members were bombarded with telephone calls from president Rayaale who mistakenly argued that the brainstorming would jeopardize his bid for the re-election.

    When one examines the source of Rayaal’s panic one would understand that the President was a victim of some sycophant spin-doctors, who, in order to get closer to him exaggerated the community brainstorming. They convinced him that the meeting was against him. That was utterly false, because, the brainstorming was in its infancy and was not intended to produce any final solutions to this huge problem. It was just a continuation of the same brainstorming with more minds to evaluate the case.

    But what is unexpectedly troublesome is the fact that some of the original members who envisioned the danger and heroically started the brainstorming were influenced by the call. After the call, they proposed to cancel the brainstorming or postpone it indefinely.

    Of all people, the original members should have known that any possible outcome of such brainstorming would take a very long time. They should have convinced the President that this brainstorming would not materialize anytime soon, and that it would not affect his bid for re-election; in fact, it would help his re-election.

    The whole idea of the brainstorming was to create a platform for a North America Diaspora general meeting whose outcome was supposed to be presented to the European and the Arabian Peninsula Diaspora, and finally to the Gadabursi community. The mission was to establish a permanent ongoing Gadabursi community dialogue. As one can calculate, the end result which would have been presented to the general Gadabursi population would have not been reached for another year or two. By that time, any elections would have been over.

    Evidently, someone fooled Rayaale and those of the Minnesota original members of the brainstorming section. I feel for them, for they were manipulated by sycophant spin doctors who intentionally misinterpreted the brainstorming.

    To make matters worst, Rayaale called the Makahiil members of the original committee and asked them to stop the brainstorming. And even though the targeted original committee members were aware of the negative, and clan oriented connotations of their actions, they proposed the cancellation or postponement of a Maxaad Casese lead brainstorming. That created mistrust, and uproar in the Minnesota Gadabursi community, because the targeted members were considered to be the pillars of Minnesota Gadabursi community. And to see them succumb to such clannish division of the Diaspora was an expected first for every one.

    The general Gadabursi community in Minnesota is in shock, and undoubtedly believes that the proposed interruption of the brainstorming is not from President Rayaal himself, but is the work of the enemies of the Gadabursi who instigated the entire drama. I personally support that believe, because, I recon that neither Rayaale, nor the targeted members are so myopic and naïve.

    In conclusion, I want every Gdabursi, who reads this piece, evaluate the brainstorming situation, make a decision, and present it to the Gadabursi community. If you support the continuation of the brainstorming, please support it financially, and send your donation to Abiib Hamud Jibril. If you disagree, please tell us the reason.
