The founders of Somali terrorism are Isaaq.

Ismail Arale was Al Shabaab's first leader. He was arrested for passport fraud in Djibouti on May 31, 2007 while he was traveling to Eritrea to receive arms and money. Arale was transferred to Camp Lemmonier and flown to Guantanamo Bay leaving Al Shabaab leaderless.

18 Al Shabaab leaders gathered in Kurtunwaarey in August 2007 to select Arale's successor. They unanimously selected Ahmed Abdi Godane as the next leader of Al Shabaab. Arale was released by the United States and sent back to Somalia in December 2009.

Al Itihaad formed in Burco in 1984 as the precursor group to Al Shabaab. The group was created from the merger of two khawarij groups, Al Wahdat Al Shabaab Al Islam in Hargeisa and Al Ahli in the south. Their leader was 'Sheikh' Ali Warsame (Hassan Dahir Aweys was deputy leader), leader of Al-Wahdat. Ali Warsame eventually retired. He came back into public view after Al Shabaab did suicide attacks in Somaliland in October 2008. Ali Warsame called the Hargeisa bombings
outrageous and un-Islamic.

Al Itihaad included another prominent member named Ibrahim Al Afghani. Afghani acquired his strange nickname from his training in Afghanistan by Al Qaeda in the late 1980s. It was here that he met Godane who he shared a hometown with. The two became close friends and partners in terror.

Afghani was one of the 18 Al Shabaab leaders who selected Godane to succeed Arale after his arrest.

Ismail Arale, Ahmed Abdi Godane, Ibrahim Al Afghani, and 'Sheikh' Ali Warsame are all Isaaq from Somaliland.
Arale currently lives in Burco, Somaliland, a known hub for khawariji. Godane and Afghani are dead. Ali Warsame currently lives in Somaliland.

Interesting tidbit about Godane: he was in Hargeisa in 1988 and escaped to Djibouti. This explains his cuqdad.

Mudane go clean your galgala mountains, assasinating your Puntland officials every month. Want me to make a list of how many officials they murdered broad daylight?

Yet so many talk on Somaliland and Isaaqs.
