US Al-Amriki is on run from Alshabab and the US

Nairobi – An American extremist in Somalia is fighting former comrades in the al-Qaeda linked Shabaab insurgent group, in what he says may be his final stand, he writes.

Alabama-born Omar Hamami – better known as Al-Amriki or “the American” – once fought alongside the hardline Shabaab in Somalia, but last year fell out with the fighters who now want to kill him.

He is also wanted by the US government, who have placed a $5m bounty on his head and is listed on the FBI‘s Most Wanted Terrorists list.

“We were forced to fight in self defence and killed three and wounded others,” he wrote in a message on Twitter, posted late on Monday.

“May not find another chance to Tweet but just remember what we said and what we stood for. God kept me alive to deliver the message to the ummah [community].”

Hamami, 28, moved to Somalia in 2006 and began to work for Shabaab recruiting young trainees through his English-language rap songs and videos, but later split from the main wing of the Shabaab.

“They raided our houses and took our stuff, and said they found condoms, alcohol, and documents,” he added, writing from an undisclosed location in Somalia. “Their goal is to kill us regardless of reason.”

Last week he claimed a Shabaab gunmen tried to assassinate him while he was drinking tea in a cafe, posting a photograph of himself dripping with blood from where he said the pistol bullet grazed his throat.

“They are sending forces from multiple directions,” he wrote last week. “We are few but might get back up.”

Born in 1984 to a Syrian Muslim father and a white Protestant mother, Hamami was raised as a Christian but began to feel estranged from his upbringing as teenager before moving to Somalia.

“‘I’m on a mission from God’, minus the blues music”, he wrote last week, an apparent reference to the 1980 Blues Brothers film, an American musical comedy.

Eritrea is negotiating with Egypt on the Nile – Breaking News ሰበር ዜና!!!

Eritrea is negotiating with Egypt on the Blue Nile - Breaking News ሰበር ዜና!!!

Eritrea after controlling the Red cost and land locking Ethiopia, now is planning to control the Blue Nile Basin with the help of Egypt.

The Eritrean Government is acting as a plate form for Egypt’s historical plan to dominate the Nile, and be able to irrigate her arid southern farms in a dream of becoming a bread basket of Middle East.

Eritrea is known for its training and preparing proxy warriors in the Horn of Africa since here independence in 1993. Even the UN sanction did not intimidate the Red sea state. The living demonstration is Alshabab of Somalia. Isasias Afwerki is said to propose the preparation G7 for the proxy war with Addis Ababa for the control of the source of  Blue Nile for Cairo.

In the recent meeting between the two regimes, Eritrea said to participate to realizing Egypt’s century old ancestral dream of controlling the Blue Nile River.

The plan was once crafted with the out sated   Dictator Mubarak in his time in power inherited from Jamal Abdel Nasser. The Eritrean Junta to create a new Nile basin state in the horn of Africa as a main base for food for Eritrea under the hegemony of Egypt. This is to assure once for all the source of the Blue Nile to be under the pharaoh’s state control.

As we all know the Eritrean struggle was started and supported in 1960’s   by the Nasser’s   Egypt. This was done due to the the refusal of the Negus Haile Selassie   to the Proposal of Egypt to create a Federation with Ethiopia and Sudan. A master plane  to control the source and the flow of the Blue Nile discharging  over  87% of the sweet life giving Water to Egypt and Sudan.

In the recent meeting, Eritrea proposed Egypt to use G7 (Genbot 7 Ethiopian Opposition in Eritrea) as a proxy agent to overthrow the regime in Addis Ababa and balkanize Ethiopia.  The representative of G7 Mr. Andargachew Tsege was also present at the meeting according to our source in Eritrea. The  meeting was held in the Egyptian Resort of the Red Sea. In consequence, in its recent news release the Isasias regime declared his support to Egypt to keep the Lion   Share of the Nile   according to 1929 and 1959 colonial pact,

Egypt has no other source of life giving water and the recent building of the Ethiopian new   Renaissance   mega dam of 145 Meter tall and 1KM 800M long with a reservoir of 63,000,000,000 m3 is expected to stop the follow the Blue Nile at list for 5 years. The mega dam has irritated the relation between Egypt and Ethiopia recently. The new Egyptian revolutionary     regime wanted to assure by all means the survival of its over 80 million inhabitant.

As history is a living lesson, in 1900’s Egypt had made two unsuccessful wars with Ethiopia in Eritrea with the help of European and US confederated mercenary fighters to have full hegemony over the source the Blue Nile.

According to our sources form   Eritrean January 21st mutineers, G7   have already getting the necessary instruction by the Nile state through Eritrea for destabilizing the regime in Addis Ababa.

The new Revolutionary regime in Egypt is said to playing carrot and stake in its new geostrategic plan for Africa. In one hand Dr. Mursi calling rapprochement with Nile basin countries, on the other he is working to destabilizing them to slow down the damming of the river Nile.

The Eritrean B. G. Teleke Keflay alias Menjus is seen escorting Egyptian security forces close to Sawa in the Northern part of Eritrea. They were seen arriving   on northern Eritrean Red Sea cost.

The Eritrean regime strategy is following the foot step of Egypt proposing peace with Ethiopia one hand and preparing war on the the other. Thus the long neglected Eritrea would revive financially and Geo strategically in the region.

Ethiopian Tsegaye Kebede won London Marathon 2013 for the 2nd time

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

The great  Ethiopian  runner Tsegaye Kebede deliberated a masterful victory  after timing his race to perfection to triumph in 2hr 6min 4sec with his country men standing third .  Four miles before the finish, Kebede had been in fifth position and 49 seconds behind the leader but slowly he reeled in his opponents before overtaking Kenya’s Emmanuel Mutai in the last mile.

It was a textbook example of how to remain patient and conserve energy until the business end of a marathon – one of the skills Farah admits he has to learn as he prepares to make his debut over the full 26.2-mile distance in London in a year’s time.

After all the predictions of a course record and possibly even a new world mark, Kebede’s winning time was actually the slowest in London since 2007 as the blisteringly fast pace-making clearly took its toll in the latter stages.

The leading group had been exactly on world record pace at the halfway mark, shortly after Farah had exited stage left, and Patrick Makau’s world mark of 2hr 3min 38sec still looked feasible with eight miles remaining. But, with temperatures rising, all thoughts of records soon disappeared as a leading group of four runners broke away. Kebede, wisely, chose not to go with them.

Kenya’s Stanley Biwott, a London Marathon debutant, was the first to attempt an attack at the 21-mile mark, though his surge lasted no more than a mile and a half when he was caught by Mutai.

In one of the most exciting finishes in years, it was Mutai who was then overtaken as Kebede raced past him just after the 25-mile mark to claim his second London crown following his victory in 2010. Mutai was second in 2hr 6min 34sec, with Ethiopian Ayele Abshero third in 2hr 6min 57sec.

Farah, who was using the first half of the race as a dry run for next year, kept his promise not to interfere with the race outcome by remaining at the back of the lead group until pulling up. Afterwards, he paid tribute to the thousands of spectators who lined the streets to catch a glimpse of him in what was his first run in the capital since his gold medal heroics in the Olympic stadium. “I felt good,” he said. “The crowd was absolutely awesome. They just want to make you go – push on, push on. I got really excited in the middle of the race but yo

u have to let the guys do their race. It’s their race.

“Kenya’s Priscah Jeptoo was the runaway winner of the women’s race, though the outcome might have been different had Tiki Gelena, the Ethiopian who beat her to the Olympic gold medal last summer, not fallen heavily in an ugly incident before the 10-mile mark. Gelana, who was the quickest woman in the field, made the mistake of veering inside to grab a bottle at a drink station and ran straight across the path of wheelchair athlete Josh Cassidy, the 2010 London champion.

The collision sent her crashing to the ground and although she picked herself up and fought her way back to the leading group, the accident took its toll whe

Tsegaye Kebede - London Marathon 2013: Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia wins men's race for the second the time, after victory in 2010n she dropped off the pace after 15 miles. She eventually finished 16th.

Cassidy’s race was also ruined, with a 20th-place finish and a £1,500 bill for a new wheelchair. To say he was unhappy was an understatement a

nd he immediately called on London Marathon organisers to change the running order of the races in future to allow the wheelchair athletes to race first instead of h

aving to overtake the female runners en route.

Jeptoo, who was running on her own for the last five miles, clocked a winning time of 2hr 20min 15sec – 77 seconds ahead of world champion Edna 

Kiplagat.

Panafricanism ፓንአፍሪካኒዝም

The Movement of the People of African Descent At Home & Diaspora based on the Ideology of One People One nation.
There exists an African personality which is in common with all men and women of color, this personality conceal specific values of wisdom, intelligence, sensibility. Black people are the most ancient people on earth. They are dedicated for unity and for a common future of glory and power.

Panafricanism -Visible & Invisible Genesis
The visible one is congresses, discussions, ideological disputes, which is the object of research & publications.
The invisible secret history of the people in the night that have been deported, died or survived without any official annals even mentioned them. But this second history that the millions of the Blacks died under the rumors, suffering under slavery lives in the collective unconscious of the contemporary Africans. The glory of the Panafrican prophets like Nkrumah is to revive political struggle and symbolic gestures of the cultural heritage of the Panafrican prophets, and the silent speeches and the bloody silent memory the people the night. ..
History
An-Africanism grew out of 19th century efforts to end slavery and the slave trade. At this time blacks worldwide were being oppressed. Slavery existed in America, South America, and the Caribbean. Also the colonization of Africa (born out of the Berlin Conference of 1884 & 85) had begun. As a result of these events black people worldwide began to realize that they faced common problems (slavery, colonization, and racism), and that it would be to their benefit to work together in an effort to solve these problems. Out of this realization came the Pan African Conferences of 1900 (London), 1919 (Paris), 1921 (London, Brussels, Paris), 1923 (London), 1927 (New York), and the last official one was in 1949. Some of the most influential blacks of the time participated in these meetings: Sylvester Williams, W.E.B. Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, Kwame Nkrumah, etc. The belief that people of African descent throughout the Diaspora (meaning spread throughout the world) share a common history, culture, and experience and should stick together. This belief is the principle idea behind Panafricanism is to bringing black people throughout the world together.
