BBC NEWS...World leaders have pledged to boost support for measures to fight piracy, terrorism and political instability in Somalia, after a meeting in London. The conference agreed a seven-point plan promising more humanitarian aid, support for African Union peacekeepers and better international co-ordination. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the world must keep Islamist militant group al-Shabab "on the run". A two-decade war has wrecked Somalia, leaving it without a proper government.
The current transitional government has direct control only in the capital, Mogadishu. It is propped up by 12,000 African Union (AU) peacekeepers. Al-Shabab militants, who recently joined with al-Qaeda, control large swathes of territory. Doubtless there has been progress today in the fight against al-Shabab and piracy. The delegates made it clear that the time for political transition is over. But Somalia may be entering another phase of violence and instability, this time between its regions, many of which have their own governments.
There were no fewer than four Somali presidents at the conference, one representing the transitional federal government, the others the more stable regions in the north. And outside the conference there were no less than three small but noisy demonstrations, all shouting and singing for different causes. This suggests that peace and unity may be still be a distant dream. Mrs Clinton ruled out talks with al-Shabab, saying that its decision to join forces with al-Qaeda showed "it is not on the side of peace, stability or the Somali people".

For Immediate Release ‘London Conference aimed at carving up the Somalia Nation’
Mogadishu 23/02/2012 - Somalis have a long history of repelling invasion of all kinds and the London conference is not in any way different from the various other conferences aimed at bolstering the invading African forces that are prolonging the instability in Somalia. The Muslims of Somalia must understand that the signatories to the London Conference do not hold the keys to the future or the stability of Somalia and should, therefore, categorically reject all mandates and constitutions prepared in foreign countries under the deceptive notion of restoring lasting peace.
With more than a dozen Christian nations mounting a concerted Crusade against the Muslims of Somalia, we, the leaders of Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen, hereby reaffirm our position that we will not under any circumstances allow any form of foreign intervention to be used as an instrument to subjugate the Muslims of Somalia and that we will confront and counter, by any means possible, all the outcomes of the London Conference.
Britain already provides military advice and training to the African invaders and now with the increased support from Britain in the form of logistical support as well as financial aid, we will see to it that the’ coordinated approach’ proposed by Britain does not succeed under the current conditions in Somalia and the delusory attempts aimed at carving up the Somali nation do not materialize.
We now stand more defiant, more stronger and more determined in the face of this imperialistic campaign. We will not, at any point in time, compromise on our beliefs and our goals of establishing governance according to Islamic Shari’ah in our country in preparation for the imminent Islamic Khilaafa and we will wage war against the Western crusade until the Truth of Tawheed emerges triumphant over the falsehood of the Christian-Zionist Crusade.
