Somalia: The Questionable Moral Arbiters

by Mohamed Jibrell from Garowe Online

What is more striking about the cyber Transitional Federal Government (TFG) bashers is how nearly all ignore the reality of the courts introducing an autocratic rule of terror based on a foreign Islamic Salafi ideology compounded by criminal acts of suicide bombs, roadside explosions, and dragging of dead bodies in the streets of Mogadishu. Those evil deeds never cross the TFG bashers’ editorial desks. For the last 17 years they have changed colors many times: clan rights supporters; nationalists; and religious purists defending the faithful, among others. What make their arguments inane are the multiple portraits they provide as critics adrift from moral bearings.
