Al-Shabaab: Three Americans Among Gunmen in Kenya Mall
pjmedia.com ^ | 9/22/13 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 09/22/2013 12:53:59 PM PDT by ColdOne

Al-Shabaab is claiming that there are American gunmen among those still holed up in the Westgate mall in a standoff with Kenyan and Israeli special forces.

The Somali al-Qaeda affiliate tweeted a series of names on its latest account before Twitter against suspended the group. Al-Shabaab has been creating new accounts each time they get shut down but a movement of pro-Kenyan tweeters has been tracking down the new accounts and complaining to Twitter.

“We received permission to disclose the names of our mujahideen inside #Westgate,” their latest account tweeted.

They proceeded to tweet the names one by one, including Ahmed Mohamed Isse, 22, “native” of St. Paul, Minn., Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid, 24, of Minneapolis, and Gen Mustafe Noorudiin, 27, of Kansas City, Mo.

“How is it possible that Al-shabab can recruit more boys from America than Kenya or Somalia? It’s as if their headquarters is in Washington D.C.”

Bingo.

These aren’t the “home grown” terrorists DHS (Janet Nappy) were looking for. They were focusing on Christians, Patriots, Tea Party, anti-gay groups....

We need pictures ASAP so all Americans can see exactly who these terrorist murderers are. It is time that we deal with the terrorists and those who teach terrorists that are in the USA.

There are “Americans” today in Somalia likely being groomed as human time bombs. Some of the U.S. residents training and operating under Al-Shabaab for the last few years will return home, perhaps entering illegally through the U.S. southwestern border. It’s just a matter of time.

Once again, I will make the suggestion that the cheapest, most effective anti-terror measure for the USA to take would be to simply ban immigration and nearly all travel from approx. 20 Mid-East, South Asian and N. African countries.

Will never happen, but don’t say I haven’t tried to help....

It will never happen. Obama has actually extended it by executive order every year, and has taken away from the legal Latin American quota to give it to people from “Muslim lands.”

“How long before this starts happening in American malls?”

-

About 10 years ago I was having a discussion about terrorism with my daughter. I said to her that frequent random attacks on malls/museums/supermarkets and the like would have more of an affect on most of us than a single huge attack like 9-11.

Very frightening.

Well, they attacked a popular public sporting event (the Boston Marathon) and two days later, we were back to talking about something else and never mentioning the words “Islamic” or “Muslim.” And the surviving jihadi had girls writing him love-letters.

They’re not attacking here because they don’t need to. We’re already conquered.

We need to turn al-shabaab unto shish kabob. Soak in lard, skewer, and roast over open coals until crispy.

This is a combined potpurri list. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.

"They’re not attacking here because they don’t need to. We’re already conquered."

Correct. The U.S. now affords them harborage and a source of income from relatives and supporters long established here. And, DHS remains totally preoccupied with hunting Christians and Tea Party types.

I was born in Minneapolis. My entire family is from Minnesota. I don’t recall a Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid. If you said this name in Minnesota 40 years ago, someone would’ve said “gezundheit”.

Figures. The Twin Cities prides itself on having the largest population of Somalis outside of that country. Now it appears it has two fewer; they’re overseas murdering innocents.

I’ve been expecting just that for the last few decades. With the advent of those willing to engage by way of suicide bombings, both vehicular and while afoot, coupled with small arms, the likelihood has only increased.

I open and concealed carry depending on my mood and the locations visited. But I am never unarmed despite the inadequacy of the arms I carry. I keep a rifle or shotgun in my vehicle as well. One never knows when those weapons might be needed. Hopefully the need will never arise.

“We’re already conquered” Bingo....we have a winner here. We have open borders with half the population on welfare & the press & government going after what’s left of the other half that is still working along with queer marriage & a collapse of civil culture. The United States of the 1950s looks like another planet from the sink-hole that we have become.

They are not citizens of any America I know of.

If there were Americans among the victims then
these rats are guilty of making war against us
and deserve to be hanged as traitors.

I’m sure when this happens in America it will encourage more people to carry to the mall and everywhere else!

The America you & I knew is being erased out of existence by an unending flood of LEGAL immigration. Over 40 million immigrants since 1965 & most of them are from the third world. Demographics are destiny.

Most Somalians in the US are brought over here as Refugees.
(by the US through Charity Group resettlement outfits $$$)

They get 3 Hots and a Home.
All a growing jihadist needs to keep their focus on killing.

Tom Clancy wrote a book 'Teeth of the Tiger' that includes such a scenario. The shopping center/mall is one I'm familiar with and I've never quite gotten over that book .... it was very real to me. The terrorists also came in through the southern border.

IMO it's a matter of 'when' .... and while we're talking 'horrific', what if instead of a mall it's something like Beslan?

Well to tell you the truth, our side has been exporting jobs from America, so at the moment we have no room to speak badly of the other side for basically doing the same thing.

Bring back American jobs.

Now.
