We told you about Abu Mansour al-Amriki in April here and here where he mocks Obama’s charisma. He is the white American who has become a leader of the Jihadist group Al Shabaab in Somalia. Fox News is reporting today that he is Omar Hammami from Daphne, Alabama. There is speculation that he has been helping recruit Somali former refugees to join him in Africa.
A week after the 9/11 attacks, a young Muslim at South Alabama University told the school’s newspaper it was “difficult to believe a Muslim could have done this.”
Now, eight years later, he is professing to launch attacks himself and calling on others to join the fight, as terror-related charges await him at home in Alabama, FOX News has learned exclusively.
Abu Mansour al-Amriki — or “The American” — has become one of the most recognizable and outspoken voices of terrorist propaganda.
He has been in war-torn Somalia for several years, fighting the secular government there with a group known as al-Shabaab, which has ties to Al Qaeda and was labeled a terrorist organization by the U.S. government last year. Only recently has he taken on a starring — and jarring — role in al-Shabaab’s outreach efforts.
He was born Omar Hammami in May 1984, and he grew up outside Mobile, Ala., in the city of Daphne.
Read the whole article and the links for our previous posts and see how he wants to extend his sword to Obama, and to heck with that “extending the hand” nonsense!
