Somalia – Kenya rejected by Somalia to hold a UN pow wow, invites Al Shabaab to the table.

Somalia is asking Al – Shabaab.

They don’t want Kenya to hold the meeting in Kenya because they don’t believe that they would be getting a fair shake there.   Isn’t one of Obama’s cousin’s of Uncles the President there?  hmmm, I wonder if there is any connection?

Oh, here it is:

“It’s the “O” factor. Obama, Ocampo, Odinga — they all share the distinctive first letter of members of the Luo tribe in Kenya, and some in this East African nation believe that the three are brothers in a conspiracy to see six suspects convicted at Ocampo’s Hague-based court so that Odinga can become president in the land where Obama’s father was born”

As the Somali government calls for a reconciliation conference in June, clan elders in the capital are urging the Islamist rebels of Al-Shabaab to take part in the meeting.

Spokesman for the clan elders’ council, Ahmed Diriye Mohamed, said in an interview with local Shabelle radio Friday night that Al-Shabaab are wanted to be part of the country’s reconciliation process.

“We are vehemently welcoming the government’s call to hold reconciliation conference inside the country and we will work how this initiative would be fruitful,” the spokesman said, adding that Al-Shabaab’s participation could revive the hopes of Somali people, as the conference could be a start to ending the internal conflict.

“You the (Shabaabs) have been fighting for years, you have killed many Somalis and instead you have lost more fighters in the war, so please and please join the reconciliation process,” the elder said. Today Al Shabaab has a chance which they will not have tomorrow, Mohamed continued.

Talking about his vision of the recent consultative meeting in Nairobi, he said the meeting had produced nothing. He urged the Somalis to give particular consideration to the June reconciliation meeting at home.

He is the second Latino American convert caught as an al Qaeda operative, Jose Padilla convicted on terror bombing charges was the first. Other prominent American Islamic converts involved with Al Qaeda include John Lindh Walker, captured in the opening stages of the War in Afghanistan in 2001 who hailed from Marin County California and Southern Californian Adam Gadahn, “Azzam al Ameriki” who runs Al Qaeda’s video production studio.

The Somali government and the militants had similarly denounced the recent United Nations-sponsored meeting In Kenya, which they all described was a conspiracy against Somalia’s existence.

The Somali cabinet said this week that it will host a reconciliation meeting in the country and called on civil society groups, the militants, clan elders and moderate Islamists to attend the meeting, which is slated in Mogadishu for June 11-16.
