    The major disruption caused by Yemeni Houthis in the Red Sea is hardly the only trouble spot in the world’s increasingly dangerous seas. An Indian navy warship has intercepted a hijacked cargo ship in the Indian Ocean, safely rescued all 17 crew members, and detained all 35 Somali pirates. The Indian navy vessel INS Kolkata came to the rescue of the Bulgarian ship MV Ruen, which was hijacked by pirates back on December 14, 2023. The operation lasted no less than 40 hours. The hijacking of the Ruen was the first successful action by Somali pirates in the past six...

    The U.S. will build up to five military bases for the Somali army in a project that seeks to bolster the Somalian national army's capabilities amid ongoing threats from an extremist group. Somalia’s defense minister and the U.S. charge d’affaires signed a memorandum of understanding Thursday in Mogadishu, the Somali capital. The agreement comes at a time when the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia, known as ATMIS, is scaling back its presence in Somalia.
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene moves to CENSURE Squad Rep. Ilhan Omar after her alleged 'Somali first' declaration sparked Republican outrage and calls for her to resign

    The House is expected to vote on whether or not to censure Rep. Ilhan Omar for her alleged 'Somali first' remarks. The privileged resolution was pushed to the House floor by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and will come up for a vote either Monday or Tuesday. If the resolution passes, the Minnesota Democrat would be the fourth member of Congress to be censured this term, following Democratic Reps. Jamaal Bowman, N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, Mich., and Adam Schiff, Calif. According to one translation of a now-viral clip of remarks Omar made in Somalian, she said her allegiances lie with Somalia...

    Guys, why is this woman still allowed in the US Congress? Ilhan Omar, who has been revealed in recent days by her own public admission to be a foreign agent, who is alleged to have committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother, who dismissed 9/11 as some people doing something, that lady just gave away the game. ... I am an American migrant in US Congress. But I am a Somali girl. A girl with your lineage, a girl with your language, a girl with your religion.

    We were profoundly surprised, even shocked on discovering the remarks made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) of Minnesota in a recent public forum, widely circulated on most social media platforms and attached below for your reference. The language she employed was regrettably unbecoming of both the office she holds and the constituents she represents. Her expressions were lacking in common decency and revealed a significant lack of understanding of basic facts. Specifically troubling, were her endeavors to revive the once-violent and dangerous ideology of Greater Somalia or Somali Weyn, which caused so much death, destruction and conflict in the Horn...

    The deputy minister of foreign affairs of Somaliland called Omar's recent comments "lacking in common decency." Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a progressive member of the so-called “Squad” and a Mogadishu native, is facing calls for her resignation after, critics say, she promised to do all she could to prevent a Somaliland deal with Ethiopia over access to the sea. “The language she employed was regrettably unbecoming of both the office she holds and the constituents she represents,” wrote Rhoda Elmi, deputy foreign affairs minister of Somaliland, which declared its independence from Somalia in 1991 but which most most countries, including...

    A top House Republican called on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to resign Monday for delivering a speech in which her critics say she placed Somali interests ahead of American ones. “Ilhan Omar’s appalling, Somalia-first comments are a slap in the face to the Minnesotans she was elected to serve and a direct violation of her oath of office,” House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) wrote on X. “She should resign in disgrace.” Omar, the first Somali-American in Congress, appeared to assure her Somali-American constituents that she would do everything in her power to prevent the disputed, breakaway Republic of Somaliland...

    Somalian refugee Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) gave a speech to the Somali community in Minnesota on Saturday that has gone viral thanks to English translation subtitles. The translations have Omar saying she and her fellow Somalis are Somali first and Muslim second–with no mention of being American. Omar also said she represents Somalia in Congress and told the audience that they control the U.S. government’s Somalia policy. Outraged Americans called for Omar’s expulsion from the House of Representatives. Reporting on the speech is sketchy as to the location, however a banner can be seen in the video with a partial...

    The president of Egypt, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, has expressed his support for Somalia in a dispute over an offer by the breakaway northern region of Somaliland to give land-locked Ethiopia access to its coast in exchange for recognition of its independence.In his strongest statement yet on the issue at a press conference in Cairo alongside the president of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, Sisi said: “My message to Ethiopia is that trying to seize a piece of land to control it is something no one will agree to.”He added that his country would be ready to provide “support in case of...

    As they were boarding it in rough seas, around 8 p.m. local time, one SEAL got knocked off by high waves and a teammate went in after him. Both are missing. The team boarding the small boat was facing about a dozen crew members. The crew members, who were taken into custody, had no paperwork, which allowed a search of the vessel. The weapons were confiscated, and the boat was sunk, a routine procedure that usually involves blowing open holes in the hull.

    The two Navy SEALs who went missing off the coast of Somalia last week were helping seize Iranian weapons bound for the Houthis, the US said in a statement on Tuesday. The Navy SEALs carried out a "complex boarding" of a dhow, operating out of the USS Lewis B. Puller and assisted by helicopters and unmanned aerial drones, CENTCOM said. (excerpt) Among what was seized were propulsion, guidance, and warheads for medium-range ballistic missiles and anti-ship cruise missiles, as well as air-defense-associated components, it said. (excerpt) The Associated Press earlier reported, citing unnamed US officials, that the pair were climbing...

    Two Navy Seals are missing after falling into the water off the coast of Somalia while trying to board a vessel in the nighttime, officials said. The two Seals, whose names were not publicly released, were climbing up a vessel in the Gulf of Aden when they got knocked off by waves. Under their protocol, when one SEAL is overtaken, the next jumps in after them. The men were on an interdiction mission — where members intercept weapons on ships that are bound for Houthi-controlled Yemen — when the waves overtook them, the officials said, according to reports. The officials,...

    A US citizen from New Jersey is accused of attempting to join the al Shabaab terrorist group and tweeting threats to bomb America in support of Hamas after its October 7 attack on Israel. Karrem Nasr, 23, was arrested December 14 after flying to Nairobi, Kenya, where prosecutors say he was planning to meet with al Shabaab members before traveling to train in Somalia, where the terror group is based. Prosecutors say Nasr, using the X moniker 'Egyptian Muslim', last month posted that 'Jihad on your home turf' was 'coming soon to a US location near you,' posting airplane, bomb,...

    'Minnesota is home to the largest Somali population in the West... I'm sure this is just a coincidence.' A Minnesota commission tasked with redesigning the state’s flag faced significant backlash on Twitter due to allegations that the new design closely resembled flags from territories in Somalia, an East African country. The proposed design includes an eight-point North Star, along with a tricolor stripe (blue, white, and green) symbolizing elements reminiscent of the state’s geography, including mountains, water bodies, and the sky. In a separate tweet, End Wokeness added, “Minnesota just replaced its official state flag with a new flag that...

    A handful of Somali parents who hoped to provide better lives for their children in Minnesota are now battling it out with their public school district for teaching 'sexualized topics' without their consent. First Liberty Institute is representing six Somali-Muslim families who are asking to be notified before their children are instructed on LGBTQ identities, because they say it violates their religious beliefs. Their children are all aged seven to nine years old, and the majority are in the third and fourth grades. Attorneys sent a letter Thursday to the school district first obtained by, saying the district has...
