By now, Somalis in the Diaspora should know that a country of their own is different from belonging to a specific tribe or clan back home. A country is more than friends or a country of 2nd citizenship. It is their share of the globe among many nations and to lose it is worse than the status of homelessness. A Clan would not give someone a country or citizenship. Other nations recognize only a country/state. One would be always identified with one’s own country of origin even if one exchanges citizenship. Yes, you say that is a “Common sense”, not worthy of reminding people, or insulting their intelligience.
Think about the futile exercises Somalis have been doing for so many centuries.Tribal relationships and allegiance exist in primative societies. Are the Somalis still in primative societal stage? Have your say.
