  This “Somaliland Phobia”
Moreover, the author’s claim of Dhulbahante and Warsangeli tribes becoming like the Kurdish minority of Somaliland is laughable, and I should say that is the joke of the day.
If the author can distinguish Dhulbahante or Warsangeli tribes from other tribes in Somaliland, such as Isaaq, Gudabiirsay or Iise, then he deserves standing ovation because such observations would be equivalent to the discoveries of an anthropologist.
The author’s attempt to divide Somaliland people by revisiting the darkest history of the nation and at the same time expressing sympathy for the victims of the civil war is a classic example of a wolf hiding in sheep’s clothing.

 A REJOINDER TO ABDALLA A HIRAD’S OUTBURST AGAINST PROFESSOR JHAZBHAYs
Darood, Isaq, Hawiye and Rahaweins etc. In such eventuality and as history attest, sub-groups as Dulbahante and/or Warsangeli will be swallowed by larger clan arrangements and thus significantly reduce their respective bargaining positions.
The recent outcry in Las Canood by the Dulbahante on unfair resource distribution in favour of the Majeerten under the Puntland’s administration and the skirmishes between Warsangeli and Puntland militia underscores this scenario.
The only factual reality is that within these sub-clans there are elements on both side of the equation and that while Somaliland would prefer a peaceful resolution of the dilemma, Puntland for whatever reason are in preference for conflict.

Though the agreement with Range was also endorsed by Abdillahi Yusuf, Puntland’s more senior warlord who had since promoted himself as president of lawless Somalia, however the terms of the deal remained secret until they were exposed in a story published by our sister publication, the daily Somali language “Haatuf”, on Jan 10, 2006.
Attempts by the Majeerteen dominated Puntland militia to subdue the local Warsangeli inhabitants led to a number of skirmishes between the two sides.
Last month’s arrival in the area of a Range team of mining experts also sparked Warsangeli resistance against any attempts at exploiting their mineral prospects.
