Looking at a wide portion of Somali or Afar regions, one might be tempted to call it as an unproductive or non-loam soil because of the hottest temperature and the acacia trees as well as thorny prosopis juliflora (derogatorily otherwise known as Woyane tree). Meanwhile, in the eye of anyone from Israel, this is a funny view. For them, Somali or Afar areas are like a virgin and fertile land. For Ethiopian pastoralists, whose livelihood depends on animal husbandry, agriculture had almost ‘zero position’. For them livestock are everything. Most of them have a belief that there is no life without livestock.Though the Ethiopian government, as a national development strategy, had attempted to introduce the agriculture system to pastoralist areas, most of them seem hardly manageable to accept agriculture as an alternative means to their livelihood. Their life is always mobile.

Somalilanders abroad feel cheated by the international community. By successfully attending the London conference on Somalia many of them thought that their unrecognised nation was finally taking the diplomatic steps needed to be politically visible after more than two decades of unofficial dealings with the world in dark corners. The hope always was, by taking the mature step of attending and engaging in the conference, their cause would also be advanced as their progress would be obvious when compared with war ravaged Somalia’s. The hope has started to fade now with the election of the new Somali President and his Prime Minister. Somalia has been changing faces and bringing new leaders for the entire period it was at war with itself but this new one unsettled the nerves of a few “Somalilanders.”

Africom steps up secret operations in Horn of Africa.
The Pentagon’s secretive drone and commando base in the Horn of Africa is getting a lot bigger and a lot busier as the U.S. doubles down on its shadowy campaign of air strikes, robot surveillance and Special Operation Forces raids in the terror havens of Yemen and Somalia. Camp Lemonnier, originally a French colonial outpost in Djibouti, a tiny, impoverished nation just north of Somalia, has been the epicenter of America’s Indian Ocean shadow war since just after 9/11. What was once little more than a run-down compound adjacent to Djibouti city’s single-runway international airport is now a sprawling complex of hangars and air-conditioned buildings housing eight Predator drones and eight F-15E fighter-bombers plus other warplanes, as well as around 300 Special Operations Forces and more than 2,000 other U.S. troops and civilians.

J. Chris Warrner, special agent in charge of the FBI's office in Minneapolis, listens to Imam Hassan Mohamud, right, during a quarterly roundtable community meeting Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 organized by the Department of Homeland Security.

Ethiopia's Muslims accuse government of religious meddling.
WITH hands clasped together as a symbol of unity, lines of Muslims gather under the beating sun outside Addis Ababa's Anwar mosque after Friday prayers chanting "Amin, Amin," or "thanks to God." They gather - as they have all this year - to protest what they call unconstitutional government interference in religious affairs, heightened by the election of Muslim leaders this month the protesters say were not free or fair Ethiopia's Muslims accuse government of religious meddling "We have requested an election, a peaceful one, a democratic one, and we didn't get (it)," said Zeinu Lopiso, 26, a merchant near Anwar mosque, speaking at a recent demonstration where hundreds took part. Zeinu, like many other protesters, refused to cast a ballot in the October 7 elections to appoint the leaders of the Supreme Council on Islamic Affairs, the community's main representative body. Zeinu opposed holding elections in government offices instead of mosques, complaining the government handpicked candidates after 17 Muslim leaders were jailed during protests in July, prompting accusations of a police crackdown.

There is a remarkable change going on in Mogadishu, Somalia — often dubbed the world’s most dangerous city. For starters, it may not deserve that title anymore. Last year, African Union forces drove the Islamist militant group al-Shabab out of Mogadishu. Now, Somalia has a new president and prime minister who have replaced the corrupt and unpopular transitional government. Hope is edging aside despair, and Mogadishu is coming back to life. It’s hard to believe, but people are talking about “the Mogadishu boom.” With more and more displaced Somalis moving back to the city every day, now there are traffic jams.
