Somali suicide bomber was from Minneapolis (How soon in USA)
Pajamas Media ^ | June 1,2011 | Patrick Poole

Posted on 06/02/2011 10:57:26 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Abdirahman Warsame at Terror Free Somalia informed us late last night that messages appearing on known al-Shabaab websites indicate that a suicide bomber who carried out on attack on AMISOM forces in Mogadishu on Monday was a Somali-American from the Minneapolis area. A twenty-two minute audio was posted on the Somali Memo website (article and audio have since disappeared) that included a segment of an English-speaking Somali speaker — apparently the suicide bomber — who encourages Muslims in the West to “die for their religion.”

Another article on Somali Memo identifies the speaker as Asadullahi Axmed “al-Imriiki” (“the American”), a 25-year old-from Minneapolis. The news is quickly being picked up by other Somali online forums.

The issue of radicalization and terror recruitment among Somali-American youths is an issue I’ve covered here at Pajamas Media since 2007 (long before it became fashionable for the establishment media). In November 2007, I wrote about a terror fundraiser and deputy of designated terrorist Sheikh Aweys, Zakaria Haji Abdi (who is now part of the Somali TFG government), who was scheduled to speak at several events in Minnesota and Virginia. Our pleas to Homeland Security officials to deny entry to the fundraiser fell on deaf ears and the event took place as planned.

At the time I noted that during the Minneapolis event Abdi instructed the attendees how to send money through hawala networks without raising suspicions of authorities. Law enforcement authorities now concede that the November 2007 meeting I reported on was the tipping point for radicalization in the Minneapolis Somali community.

How the hell did we get all of these Somalian refugees?
Is this a legacy of George H. W. Bush and his 1992 intervention to save the starving skinnys? We got a lot of Somalians in my city. One time I saw a bunch of skinny Somalian Muslim women walking through the doors of Catholic Charities. WTF? Who needs them?

On the afternoon of October 3rd 1993, a military raid took place. It was made up of Delta Force Soldiers, Army Rangers and 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. This was an attempt to capture two of Warlord Mohamed Farah Aidid’s senior subordinates in the Bakara Market Mogadishu, Somalia. The mission was led by Major General William F. Garrison and was supposed to take no more than half an hour. The extraction by the Delta team was successful, but the Somali Militia, armed with RPG’s, shot down two Black Hawk helicopters. The resulting rescue extended the mission to over 18 hours.

Bush got us in there and then Clinton...Clinton got them all in here..A huge amount are also in Portland Maine..on welfere I guess..

The Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area has more Somalis than live in Mogadishu and is rapidly becoming Somalistan. These folks have no desire to become American and are whipped up by radical imams demanding sharia law enclaves. I have long thought that the Mall of America is one big fat target for radical Islamist terrorists.

America is currently the only place where all have a sanctuary to rest in. If the war start here, then there will be no place on Earth that anyone good or evil could rest. The insane will never understand that, but hopefully maybe they will hold off. If America can get back to a healthy economy and offer the good life maybe we may never see what is happening around the rest of the world.

>>who encourages Muslims in the West to “die for their religion.”<<

You have to agree with that sentiment — just do it solo without bothering anyone else.

Farah Aideed’s own son was a city clerk in the California city of Long Beach, and he was interpreter for the US deployment there in Somalia, either for the US Army or USMC.

Once there, he defected to the enemy side.

It was a news story that was spiked, since it was embarrassing to the Clinton administration.

It’s almost like the importation of large numbers of these anti-Western people has the US GOVERNMENT aim of clamping down here in CONUS.

They either did understand the risks of not:

1. They understood the risks - They acted nefariously.
2. They didn’t understand the risks - They acted foolishly.

WHICH ONE WAS IT...?

Sort of like the BATF GunWalker scheme, to knowningly export assault weapons with the goal of making legal gun sales into the cause of Mexican narcoViolence (and then used as premise to restrict 2nd amendment rights).

The population of Mogadishu is estimated at about 2-3 million. The population of the Somalis in the Twin Cities is about 10-15 thousand.

Can’t seem to find any mention of this story on the StarTribune’s website.

Imagine that.

I’m sitting at a computer at my local county library. About 10 minutes ago a young Somali female walked in.

Here’s the quiz question...

What has she been doing for the last 10 minutes?

“How the hell did we get all of these Somalian refugees?”

We’ve got a whole little city of them here near Atlanta, too. One of my coworkers stopped in to a Starbucks up the road recently and said if she didn’t KNOW she was in the US, she could have been in Somalia. She retired from the Army about 10 years ago.

Federal authorities are trying to confirm the identity of a suicide bomber they say 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, pictured here, bombed the African Union base in Mogadishu on Monday, killing two AU troops and a government soldier.

Pretty good bet she’s not looking for some romance novel to read.

So do tell, please.

State Dept. Using ‘Diversity Visas’ to Encourage Immigration from Yemen

http://www.newmediajournal.us/government/01052010.htm

The State Department has awarded 1,011 special “diversity visas” allowing Yemeni nationals to immigrate to the United States since 2000, the year 17 US sailors were killed when the USS Cole was attacked by terrorists in the Yemeni port of Aden.

The “diversity visas” are designed to encourage immigration from countries that do not otherwise send significant numbers of immigrants to the United States.

The State Department roster of all countries whose nationals have received “diversity visas” to immigrate to the United States in 2010, for example, shows that 2 of these immigrants will be from Luxembourg, 3 from the Solomon Islands, 4 from French Guiana, 5 from Reunion, 6 from Cape Verde, 7 from Malta, 8 from Guinea-Bissau, 9 from Comoros, 10 from Suriname—and 72 from Yemen. Nationals of the four states listed by the State Department as state sponsors of terrorism—Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria—also received “diversity visas” from the State Department to immigrate to the United States in 2010. These include 98 from Syria, 298 from Cuba, 1,084 from Sudan, and 2,773 from Iran...

Here’s the U.S. Department of State web page for the Diversity Visa Program: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1322.html

celebrate diversity!

Well, she actually was doing it for 20 minutes and then she was asked to leave.

Talking on her cellphone.

You CANNOT find a Somali female that ISN’T talking on her cellphone. It’s not just a stereotype. It’s reality.
