Canada must give young Somali Canadians more opportunities to succeed or they will remain at high risk of being recruited into extremist organizations and gangs, two ministers from the independent government of Puntland in northeast Somalia said.
The government ministers – both are Canadian and Somali – echoed concerns from within the Toronto diaspora that youth are turning to criminal activity because they lack job and education opportunities here.
Remember: The real story is in the comments.
Why not tell one of these ministers what you think of his notions, over at his Facebook page?
Anyone familiar with the problems created by Somali immigrants to the West will note that none of the Journal’s articles includes the word “khat” or the phrase “female genital mutilation.”
Even the Los Angeles Times and Canada’s National Post have reported on the staggering obstacles to Somali assimilation, such as the need for classes explaining that wife-beating is illegal, along with the chronic use of the illegal stimulant khat.
