Alleged “teen” bomber said he didn’t mind killing kids either. Here is more on the radicalized Muslim Somali we heard about yesterday. AP has a lot more details, and I am sure there are even more details available today. However, this article made me laugh for one reason (yes, I know its a terrible situation that could have been very tragic)! I’m laughing that once again the mainstream media turns to our old buddy, previously convicted of immigration fraud, Omar Jamal (the Somali Jesse Jackson, I call him) for a quote.
Do you reporters have no one else who will speak for the so-called “Somali community” than Jamal?
Every time over the last couple of years whenever a Somali gets into trouble with the law, Omar Jamal dashes on to the scene to spin the story that the “community” is upset, that the perpetrator doesn’t represent the “community,” that the perp was just a “kid.” And, he ALWAYS contacts the family of the kid so he sounds authoritative to the gullible reporters! I’m beginning to think that the authorities (FBI?) must give out his name to reporters—hey, reporter, call up Jamal, he will give you a politically correct quote!
I am too lazy to link every post on Jamal but use our search function for him and you will see what I mean. Most recently I wrote about him here early this month when he was busy spinning the Somali sex trafficking bust story.
Here then is Jamal in this AP story:
In August, the U.S. Justice Department unsealed an indictment naming 14 people accused of being a deadly pipeline routing money and fighters from the U.S. to al-Shabab, an al-Qaida affiliated group in Mohamud’s native Somalia.
Officials have been working with Muslim community leaders across the United States, particularly in Somali diasporas in Minnesota, trying to combat the radicalization.
On Saturday, Omar Jamal, first secretary to the Somali mission to the United Nation and an advocate for Somalis in Minnesota, said Mohamud has a stepmother in Minneapolis. [LOL! Jamal knows some distant step-mother, its probably one of the “teen’s” father’s other wives—ed] He condemned the plot and urged Somalis to cooperate with police and the FBI.
Jamal said he had spoken to two Somalis who knew Mohamud, and he was described as religious, quiet and innocent. Jamal said Mohamud is from southern Somalia.
“Everybody’s afraid, really really afraid,” Jamal said of members of Oregon’s Somali communities and elsewhere. “They’re afraid of, first of all, the label. The allegation is very serious …”
Guess what Jamal? We are the ones who should be afraid. If Somalis are afraid they better get their acts together and get the “kids” under control!
For New Readers! This story is bringing new readers to RRW in droves, so it’s important that you know some of the background of where all the Somalis are coming from—-the US State Department brings in thousands every year as refugees. Groups like Catholic Charities, the Hebrew Immigrant Aide Society, Church World Service and World Relief (among others) are paid with your tax dollars to resettle them in your towns.
We have admitted well over 100,000 Somali refugees to the US. To check out the numbers visit this post, one of our most widely read posts over the last few years. In FY2010 which ended September 30th the US State Department resettled 4,884 Somalis (here) to towns near you. The “teen” would-be bomber in Oregon was one of the refugees.
Also, after being closed for nearly two years, the US State Department is on the verge of resuming the fraud-ridden family reunification program that admitted as many as 36,000 Somalis fraudulently to the US between 2003 and 2008. See the latest on new regulations, here. The State Department is on the verge of re-opening the program.
