Somali men missing all over the world! Training are they?

Update Dec. 5th:  Northeast Intelligence Network has more details here.  Says they are being trained to return to the US and attack soft targets.

We reported to you last week that as many as 40 Somali young men are missing from the Minneapolis area and are believed to have gone to terrorist training camps either in Somalia or elsewhere to supposedly prepare to fight in the civil war in their homeland.   Keep in mind these American men came here originally as refugee boys who we have fed, educated, housed and kept healthy, for what?   To blow themselves (and innocent people) to bits like their buddy Ahmed did recently?

Now, comes a story from FOX today (Hat tip:  Blulitespecial) that Somali young men have turned up missing in other western countries as well as Australia.   And, look who knows all about it—Omar Jamal, who else.  He has got a pulse on the whole world!

I’ve come across 10 to 15 mothers crying because their sons are missing,” said Omar Jamal, executive director of the Minneapolis-based Somali Justice Advocacy Center.

A senior U.S. military intelligence analyst said the number may be even higher, since not all of the families whose sons have gone abroad will report it.

Jamal said the Somali community has seen young men disappear in a number of countries across the world, including Canada, the Netherlands and Australia. Multiple sources within the Somali community have corroborated this account.

You know what strikes me as really telling about Mr. Jamal’s statement?   Wouldn’t you think this was such a big deal that if crying mothers were coming to you about their missing sons you might remember exactly who they were and know how many it was—10 women, 11 women, or whatever number?   When he says 10-15 “crying mothers” it strikes me as a fabrication.  Jamal fabricated his way into the US, so what else is new?

Back to the story.

Intelligence sources confirm that men are missing and not just in Europe and Australia.

A senior American intelligence source confirms that Somalis have vanished in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia, adding that some people from the Caribbean also appear to have left for Somalia. And not all of the people bound for training or jihad in Somalia have a Somali background, the source said.

A man who appears to be Caucasian and is aligned with the Somalia-based terrorist group Shabaab can be seen in a recent jihadist video, and another gave an interview with al-Jazeera (though he wore a facemask when doing so). The source said that at least three African-Americans from the Minneapolis area also are suspected of traveling to Somalia to join jihadist groups.

Shabaab is the Muslim terrorist group we mentioned the other day, the one which wants to send us to hell.

So, if you are thinking, just let them go off and kill themselves in Somalia, that is well and good unless they plan to return as this article contemplates.

The size of the recruiting network in the U.S. isn’t known, and estimates vary widely. But a major concern is what will happen when these young men return to the U.S. after having undergone terrorist training or participated in combat.

Certainly the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, knows if these men left the country and will be able to stop them when they return.  But, I worry about something else, what if they never left?

Somali suicide bomber given decent burial in Minnesota

A reminder Dec. 5th:   A reader has just reminded me to tell new readers that as many as 80% of the Somali refugees entering the US may have done so illegally, here.

Update:  Somali men missing all over the world tonight.

You gotta be kidding!   This guy, 27 years old, blows himself to bits and takes along 29 other people (I bet there were women and kids among those killed) and our FBI scoops up the body parts and brings them to Minnesota for a funeral.  I wonder what that cost the US taxpayer?   Have we gone completely around the bend?

And then, would reporters find someone other than Omar Jamal to speak for the Somalis.   Jamal was found guilty in 2003 of immigration fraud and ordered deported.   Hat tip:  Blulitespecial.

Family and friends did not wish to talk about the circumstances of his death.

Community activist Omar Jamal is one of the few who will.

“Honestly I look at him seriously as a victim and not as a criminal, I think of him as a young victim,” says Jamal.

A victim?  The killer was a victim?  He was 27 years old, not 17.  Jamal, that doesn’t make him a “kid!”  If the killer is the victim,  what does that make the 29 people he murdered?   Aren’t they the real victims? 

Nobody made this 27-year-old American citizen go to Somalia.  This is just infuriating.   Stop all Muslim immigration to the US or we will be seeing more decent burials for American suicide bombers.

See the story and especially the video of the funeral here.

Here is our original report on this evil, cold-blooded Muslim killer, Ahmed.  More on Jamal here.

Iraqi archbishop wants Christians to return. But is it safe?

The Archbishop of Kirkuk is calling on Iraqi Christians to return home. The Catholic News Agency reports:

Archbishop Louis Sako of Kirkuk said in an interview with the L’Osservatore Romano this week that the situation in Iraq “is quite good and this means refugees could return to their homes. There are hundreds of empty and abandoned rooms and tents that await the return of Christians.”

“Christians draws near,” the archbishop said, “and what better time to come together and await the birth of our Lord Jesus?” he asked.

“Our Muslim brethren also await the return of the Christian community. When Muslims are in need and ask us for help, we do not hesitate. I assure you that in Iraq there has always been a great spirit of coexistence and reciprocal respect,” he added.

Archbishop Sako also noted that “towards the middle of December at the offices of the Archdiocese of Kirkuk, a day of prayer and reflection will be held, which will be attended not only by Christians but by leaders of other faiths as well.  It will be day of prayer during which hymns and psalms will be read and we will ask Jesus to help us live together, to dialogue and to keep Kirkuk and Iraq free of violence. This will once again show the spirit of coexistence and peace that is found in Iraq.”

“Of course,” he warned, “we cannot underestimate the terrorist groups, whose objective is to spread fear among Christians and break the good relations that unite the country. But with common prayer we can lessen the danger.”

That last paragraph makes it sound not quite so safe as all that. And indeed, the Asia News reports on another statement by the Archbishop that is not so optimistic. This one is a reaction to the news that the European Union has announced a plan to take in 10,000 Iraqi refugees, many of whom would be Christian.

While it is our duty to welcome refugees it is far more important to “eliminate the root cause of their forced exile” and to make it possible for them to “live in peace and harmony in the land of their birth…. Passing an indemnity of this nature is like telling Christians to flee, to leave Iraq.  Today 10 thousand, tomorrow another 10 thousand until the day arrives when the nation will be emptied of its Christian presence”.   

He says it’s all right for European countries to take the most difficult cases, “but it is necessary to deal with specific cases and above all to work to rebuild civil coexistence in the country.”

Msgr. Sako denounces the lack of a common vision within the Christian community and the absence of a strong political leadership: “Christians are divided among themselves – he comments – some want to stay, others prefer to leave.  The desire to flee is spurred on by the lack of a political leader capable of guiding people towards a concrete project that would convince them to stay, even in the midst of suffering and difficulties”.  A large part of the Muslim community is also against the exodus, who seek “faithfulness, openness and morality” from their Christian brothers and sisters, but also cooperation in “rebuilding the future together” because they consider Christians “an integral part of our nation”.

Can it be true that many Muslims want the Christians to stay? I have read that in other places. Despite media reports that dwell on differences within Iraq, the place has been a nation for a long time in which different groups lived together. On the one hand, the current constitution is Islamic. On the other hand, Iraqis have been traumatized by the violence stirred up between groups, and have some motivation to stop emphasizing religious differences and build a civil society.  The Archbishop expresses both sides. First he invokes the Muslims who consider Christians “an integral part of our nation.” Then, 

The Archbishop of Kirkuk concludes with an appeal for the Christian community: “To flee before difficulties – he says – means loosing the true meaning of the Christian message which invites us to mission, not to retreat.  Even in the face of persecution, we must be an example of the deepest sense of the Gospel, which asks us to be witnesses to Christ’s sacrifice. Leaving means betraying our duty to announce Christ, as many Muslims hope and expect us to do.  All of this is held within the meaning of one expression, which according to tradition Peter asked of Christ; ‘Quo vadis?’. In his answer he invited Peter to return to Rome to face martyrdom”. 

The situation is probably as mixed as the Archbishop’s message.


I don’t have time to give you excerpts or comment on this, but World Magazine presents a dire picture of the situation for Iraqi Christians, here.

Polygamy on the rise in US Muslim immigrant communities

We have written on many occasions about polygamy in the US Muslim community, so perhaps the most surprising thing about this information is that it is coming to us from the Huffington PostThe article by Patricia Nell Warren, which discusses all groups practicing polygamy, begins this way (a turn off to me):

One of the religious right’s standard sputterings is that legalizing same-sex marriage will open the door to legalizing polygamy.

But, read on!   Scrolling down to the section on Muslim polygamists, the author has obviously done some homework about Sharia (Islamic law) entering the US along with the immigrants.

The third threat that the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) crowd see coming is from traditionalists in the U.S.’s growing Muslim population. Since 1900, the U.S.’s Islamic community has been quietly growing; but in recent decades, however, that growth has exploded with an inflow of immigrants and refugees, many of them from fundamentalist Islamic countries where plural marriage is legal. While liberal and even moderate Muslim-Americans have largely abandoned the practice of polygamy, traditionalists still insist on it. Their sacred book, the Koran, authorizes Muslim men to have up to four wives, provided they can care for them adequately.

U.S. census authorities don’t keep stats on religion, so they don’t know how big the Muslim population actually is. Recent conservative estimates put it at nearly 3 million, while liberal estimates push it as high as 7-8 million. Even a middling 5-6 million would make Muslims a sizable voting bloc. Muslim immigrants or refugees who arrive here with more than one wife, though legal in their country of origin, are required to pick one wife as the legal spouse under U.S. law and jettison the rest. However, according to a recent NPR story, there are an estimated 100,000 U.S. Muslims, perhaps more, who are practicing closet polygamy.

We have heard privately that refugees from countries like Somalia have for years brought additional wives to the US disguised as sisters or aunts.   Hum!  That sure fits the scenario that has recently caused the suspension of the State Department’s P-3 family reunification program.  Our source also told us that the volags resettling the polygamous “families” knew or suspected the phoney relationships, but still placed the “relative” nearby in the neighborhood.  The additional wives then were treated as single women with children and got more welfare aid.   The sure tip-off of a “husband” in the neighborhood was a “single” woman with a new pregnancy.

Ms. Warren goes on to explain Sharia law creep:

Immigrant traditionalists who want the same kind of life here that they lived in their countries of origin have discovered a back door into our legal system. Through it, they’re quietly linking their Islamic law system, sharia, with our practice of civil arbitration.

Yup, one more reason to halt ALL MUSLIM IMMIGRATION TO THE US.

The worst (potential) asylees in the world

Following up on Ann’s post earlier today about the Guantanamo prisoners, I’m relieved to read in the Wall Street Journal today that although closing Gitmo is a “high priority” for the Obama administration,

Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon Tuesday, Mr. Gates said the Democratic-controlled Congress would need to craft legislation resolving legal issues before the prison could be closed. Specifically, he said the bill would have to bar freed prisoners from seeking asylum in the U.S.

Anybody who has thought about it for more than two minutes realizes that closing Gitmo is complicated and isn’t going to happen any time soon.

Mr. Obama has pledged to close the prison, but aides say it is easier said than done. The president-elect will have to make decisions on issues such as the fate of prisoners who have been approved for release, but whom no other country is willing to accept.

Everything is easier said in a campaign than done in reality, as Mr. Obama will learn again and again and again. However, he has a lot of passionate support from people who know nothing about anything, so he can probably get away with keeping it open. In fact, his most passionate supporters probably wouldn’t notice.
