Top Islamist Leader Calls for Peace And Reconciliation

An Islamist calling for peace and reconciliation? ...uh, what happened? I think I just fainted.

Somalia's top Islamist leader, Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed, with whom Shabelle had an interview from Nairobi, Kenya on Friday, said the US government worked hard to bring him to the Kenyan capital Nairobi.

About three months ago weren't we accusing this guy of harboring al-qaeda? I can't tell who's the enemy and who isn't anymore.

"The U.S. and I have had dialog over how to introduce peace into Somalia. We have agreed on many issues and we still have something left," he said.

Well, it's nice to know that we're capable of getting along with Islamists when we want to. Maybe the Muslim nations will realize that we're not all that bad. I mean, when you put aside the random missiles we fire into homes around the region you can get to our warm, loving centers.
