Update Dec. 4th: This group is recruiting all over the world.
Update Nov. 26th: Now 40 Twin Cities Somalis are missing!
And, guess where they are recruiting? According to a pair of stunning articles today, it looks like right in the good old USA. Yes, that is right! Remember those Minneapolis missing young men? When we suggested in that post yesterday that we are breeding and raising Jihadists, whose families have possibly arrived in the US fraudulently through the Refugee Resettlement Program, we might really be on to something.
No wonder the Department of Homeland Security put the squeeze on the State Department to shut the family reunification (P-3) program down. Family reunification, we have learned previously, is the largest portion of our legal immigrant program. I don’t think Somalis come into the US in any other way than through Refugee Resettlement (or I suppose illegally).
From Minneapolis 5 Eyewitness News:
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has learned that federal law enforcement sources believe that a Twin Cities man blew himself up in a suicide bombing in Northern Somalia last month.
The FBI and Homeland Security are investigating whether Shirwa Ahmed had developed a terrorist recruiting network in the area.
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS learned that Ahmed came to the Twin Cities in 1996 and graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. He was a naturalized U.S. citizen.
More than a dozen young men of Somali descent, mostly in their 20s, from the Minneapolis area have recently disappeared, U.S. law enforcement officials tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. All are thought to be associates of Ahmed. U.S. officials suspect most of the young men have departed for Somalia to fight in ongoing violence there or to train in terrorist camps. Family members of the young men are said to be distraught, trying to figure to out what happened to them, sources say.
So far, the investigation has not uncovered credible evidence of a plot targeting the U.S. but American officials want to track down all these young men before they can say for certain what this is or is not…
The Minneapolis news story tells us that the terrorist group that Ahmed was involved with is Shabaab al Mujahideen. And, what a coincidence, here is another article today from Fox News (Hat tip: Blulitespecial) about Shabaab al Mujahideen.
In the summer of 2007, a 28-year-old father of three from Houston, Texas, shocked his country when he became the first American ever to be convicted of receiving military training at a terrorist camp in Somalia.
Daniel Maldonado, an offbeat, outspoken young man who sported tattoos and dreadlocks, committed himself to wage jihad outside the United States and went to Somalia to receive training. It was there that he mastered the violent “arts” of homicide bombing, building IEDs and engaging in hand-to-hand combat.
Read on and consider that the chances are very very high that this convicted terrorist was resettled in the United States by the US State Department with the help of your tax dollars. Remember we have resettled over 80,000 Somali refugees in the last 25 years. More than half of those are here since 9/11!!!
I’m wondering if any of the good folks in the volags remember Jihadis Shirwa Ahmed or Daniel Maldonado?
So what do they want?
Shabaab’s ultimate goal, as articulated in an April statement, is to throw the West “into hell.”
Hint to Homeland Security, you need to now go to some of the hot Somali towns in the US and see if other Somali young men (the ones we have fed, educated, and taken care of) might have turned up missing. For starters, try Seattle, WA, Greeley, CO, Grand Island, NE, Shelbyville, TN, Ft. Morgan, CO, Lewiston, ME, Columbus, OH and of course Minneapolis and Houston. And, I almost forgot! NASHVILLE, TN!
