Oh boy, here we go again. And, look who is running his mouth again—Omar Jamal. Can you mainstream reporters please find another voice for the so-called Somali community. This is a story from Seattle, WA, home to one of the missing Somali “youths” before his arrest on terrorism charges recently. The “community” isn’t cooperating with the terrorism investigation because of some drug raids gone awry.
The Department of Justice recently revealed that a 25-year-old Somali refugee from Seattle, Abdifatah Yusuf Isse, has pleaded guilty to providing support to terrorists in connection with U.S. recruitment efforts by Al-Shabaab.
“It is a very difficult community to walk into,” said one law-enforcement official assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Seattle who spoke on condition of anonymity because he does not have permission to talk to the media. “There is a lot of mistrust there and part of it is because of these raids.”
Omar Jamal runs a one man operation, funded by ???, called the Somali Justice Advocacy Center in Minnesota and yet here he is telling whoever will listen, it’s all about the mean federal government not treating them right and not letting them have their illegal drug, khat!
Omar Jamal, who operates the Somali Justice Advocacy Center in St. Paul, said the khat arrests damaged a relationship that already had been strained by Treasury Department raids on small, informal Somali money exchanges, called “halawas,” in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Fears that the halawas were being used to finance terrorism proved unfounded, and no criminal charges were ever filed.
“It seems that the only relationship we have with law enforcement is when they come to arrest us,” Jamal said. “There is very little outreach.”
Bitch, bitch, bitch, that is all this guy does. Can’t any of your reporters google him and see that he is into everything, anywhere he can insert himself in any issue involving Somalis. Here he is in June bitching that the FBI isn’t doing enough on the terrorist recruiting case. And, this is what I said about CAIR and the modus operandi that even the FBI falls for:
This is the M.O. of grievance group, CAIR: complain about how bad America is and how law enforcement is doing a lousy and discriminatory job while at the same time doing everything in its power (using our laws!) to slow down any attempt to get to the bottom of an investigation. And, unfortunately, all too often we fall for it!
Dear FBI and reporters: My guess is that Omar Jamal is playing both sides!
