Just another day at the library in Somali-country Minnesota

Two stabbed outside library by Koran-carrying woman!

From CBS News (hat tip Cliff):

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — Two people were stabbed in a seemingly random attack at a Twin Cities library.

After the incident Wednesday night at the Oxboro Library in Bloomington, 35-year-old Samira Abdalla Salim was arrested.

Salim was no stranger to the Oxboro Library. She had a reputation for handing out the Koran and talking religion outside the building.

“They had some issues with her harassing other patrons,” said Bloomington Police Commander Mark Stehlik.

But it’s what investigators say she did on Wednesday night that surprised everyone.

“I never thought she would do that. She was very nice,” said Anisa Ahmed, Salim’s neighbor.

Salim is accused of stabbing two people. The first victim was a woman who was walking into the library.

“The next thing she knew, she felt a sharp pain in the middle of her back and realized she had been stabbed,” said Stehlik.

The second was a security guard who heard the victim’s cry for help. He went to talk to Salim in the parking lot.

This story reminds me that former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty  served as governor while thousands of Somalis were resettled in his state, in fact during some of the highest years for Somali resettlementNumberUSA gives him a great score on the issue of immigration but I am wondering if anyone has any information about whether he or his administration ever questioned the huge numbers of Somalis being placed in Minnesota by federal contractors. 

Please e-mail me at  Ann@vigilantfreedom.com if you know anything about Pawlenty’s role in the resettlement process in Minnesota.

If you haven’t seen my first post this morning it’s about a Somali “kid” who left the good life (the American Dream!) in Minnesota to return to Africa for Jihad training, here.  He allegedly blew himself (and others) up there this week.

American Somali suicide bomber: come on brothers, jump into the jihad!

And you will get virgins and  the US government will bring your body parts back to the US for a proper burial near your family! Wow!

I was away most of the day yesterday as everyone was gasping over this latest former refugee who allegedly blew himself to bits in Africa for Allah.   Frankly, I’m sick of this story and these ungrateful refugees who have no interest in assimilating.  All I could think of was the waste of taxpayer money—your hard-earned dollars that were used for raising this kid in Minneapolis:  his education, his healthcare, his food stamps and the damn open borders activists who are busy every day hauling people like him into the US (and, adding insult to injury, we pay them for their work!).

Oh, and don’t forget the expense of all the terror investigators and prosecutions on-going.

But, it’s my duty to post this, even if you’ve seen it elsewhere.   From AP:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Federal authorities said they are trying to confirm the identity of a suicide bomber who carried out a deadly attack in Somalia after a militant group claimed Thursday that the man was a Somali-American from Minnesota.

The group al-Shabab said 25-year-old Abdullahi Ahmed of Minneapolis bombed the African Union base in Mogadishu on Monday, killing two AU troops and a government soldier. Minnesota, home to the largest Somali community in the U.S., has been the center of a federal investigation in recent years into the recruiting and travels of young men who left the U.S. believed to have gone to fight with al-Shabab.

The FBI is aware of the bombing and has agents in East Africa investigating, and the agency is trying to determine the bomber’s identity, said Steve Warfield, an FBI spokesman in Minnesota.

“We are trying to find out who that guy is and if there are any ties to Minnesota, but right now we don’t know,” Warfield said.

He said that process could take time, and authorities may never get definitive answers. Not only do agents need to get into the war-torn country, which has been unstable for decades, they have to find something that could be tested for authenticity, he said.

More than 20 young men have left Minnesota in waves since 2007 to allegedly join al-Shabab, which the U.S. says has ties to al-Qaida.

A total of 19 people have been charged in Minnesota in connection with the travelers and alleged terror financing. Others have been charged in San Diego and St. Louis with funneling money to the terror group.

AP reports an interview with the supposed American bomber in which he says come and join us!

The man said the suicide bombing had been planned in advance. He also spoke briefly in English, delivering a message to his “brothers and sisters” in the West: “Wherever you are, brothers, come,” he said. “Come to jihad.”


The group is known for using Americans to recruit others to their cause.

Burying them at taxpayer expense!

We first reported on these Somali “kids” going back to Africa in 2008, here.  And, at that time we reported that the first American suicide bomber, was identified as Shirwa Ahmed of Minneapolis.  Here AP mentions him, but doesn’t mention that we brought his body parts back to the US and buried them at taxpayers expense!

The first known American suicide bomber in Somalia was Shirwa Ahmed of Minneapolis. He blew himself up in October 2008, in the northern breakaway republic of Somaliland as part of a series of coordinated explosions that killed 21 people. In September 2009, insurgents — including an 18-year-old from Seattle — drove two stolen United Nations cars into an African Union base and detonated them, killing 21 people.

Omar Jamal again!

And, to add to my annoyance over this whole story, the AP uses the ubiquitous Omar Jamal as a source.  Longtime readers know I call Jamal the Somali Jesse Jackson!  We have dozens of posts on the man convicted in Tennessee years ago of immigration fraud charges who should have been deported (we don’t deport to Somalia, by the way, Canada does), but who lazy reporters go to to help spin just about any Somali story.   Use our search function for ‘Omar Jamal’ and see what I mean!   LOL! Here is a story I posted in 2009 when another of the “kids” was killed in Somalia and Jamal insisted the US bring his body home.

For New Readers!  Stories like this one always bring new readers to RRW and you should know that the US State Department brings in thousands of Somalis 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 (has been on the verge for months and months!)  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.

Now, also, Somalis are coming illegally across our borders and ironically asking for asylum because of the radical Islamic Jihadists (including Americans!) in Africa.
