Posted on 09/27/2013 8:30:10 AM PDT by Eagle of Liberty
First, though, we want to look at why the deadly mall attack in Kenya is raising questions about radicalism here in the U.S. That siege was orchestrated by the Somali militant group al-Shabab. Kenya's foreign minister has said that two or three Americans were involved in the attack. U.S. officials are still looking into that claim. They say there's no definitive proof of that. But our next guests say Americans have been recruited into al-Shabab, and they've gone off to places like Somalia to fight with the group. We're going to hear from reporter Mark Brunswick. He's with the Star Tribune in Minnesota, and he's written about recruitment efforts aimed at Somali Americans living there. Also with us once again is Mohamed Elibiary. He is the founder of Lone Star Intelligence, and he works to stop American Muslims from joining terrorist organizations. Welcome to you both. Welcome back in your case, Mohamed. Thank you so much for joining us once again.
MOHAMED ELIBIARY: Thank you, Michel.
MARK BRUNSWICK: Thank you, Michel.
MARTIN: Now let me start with you, Mr. Elibiary, because you've told us that among Muslims in the U.S. - among Muslim groups in the U.S., Somali Americans are particularly susceptible to recruitment into extremist groups or particular targets of recruitment. Why is that?
ELIBIARY: Well, because they come from a tribal society. So familial and clannish connections to the old country are actually a lot more prevalent and strong despite them residing several thousand miles away here in the U.S.

If they attend college, definitely.
ANY muslim is liable to be radicalized.
Give them a choice of renouncing Islam or being deported.
First, if you are a hyphenated American (of any stripe) you have proven yourself to be unworthy of this country and should get the hell out of it. The hyphen tells us you have no clue of what it means to be an American.
Second, if you believe in that hate cult created in the syphilis eaten crazed mind of that 7th Century sand monkey pedophile Mo-Ham-Mud and the comic book for retards (koran), you definitely don’t belong in ANY Western civilized country.
As Somali-Americans fail on both criteria, get the hell out NOW.
What worries me is that no one seems to notice how many of these Somalis are working in our food processing industries.
We’ll figure it out one day, too bad it has to be the hard way.
There are Somalis who adopted America as their homeland in every way, shape and form and keep the oath which they took to become citizens, either formally or by loyalty. They are Americans of Somali descent.
Then their are Somalis who lied when they took their oath of American citizenship, gained it from the subterfuge of being born here even though they never gave loyalty in return, or discarded it when they took up radical Islam or other poisonous philosophies at war with what America stands for. You may correctly call them malcontents, fifth columnists, invaders or similar labels, but never Americans.
More likely than what, exactly?
More than any other buncha muzzies you could name???
Somalia is a worthless Muslim sh1t-hole because of the people who live there. It’s that simple ! Only fools would invite them to live in their country.
Could you post a less productive comment? The thread was posted to hightlight Mohamed Elibiary more than Somali immigrants, but because the Nairobi Mall incident was the most recent act of muslim massacre, I figured I’d post the article.
There should be NONE in this country. OUT!
I remember the Mayor of Lewiston pleaded with the Somali leaders in Atlanta. He asked them to cut back on the tactic of migration to his city. He was quickly saddled with the designation of "racist". At a total of 1,200 newcomers it was claimed resources were then strained to the limit. This regarding shelters, welfare agencies and the like.
I just checked on Wiki and found there are now 6,000 Somali residents in a city of about 36,000. Wiki is quite positive and talks of a resurgence of new business enterprises there. There is however grumbling amongst Somali men about Lewiston. They do not like the cold weather.
Very hard to get the real truth however, must be a Freeper from Lewiston out there.
The polygamous "refugees" are generally a real PIA in Maine. They need everything, from Section 8 apartments for each wife, (good luck with that in Maine), to extraordinary health care (ask an ER about female circumcisions gone wrong) to special handling in schools where the young men refuse to follow instructions from females.
The politically correct crowd fawns on them, their imams raise money to send jihadis to training camps, and they are quite aggressive in personal contact.
The "refugees" are actually from bandit border tribes who lived by smuggling, cattle and camel rustling in Kenya and Somalia.
It was not a good day for Maine when these jokers with their tribal scars showed up!

Yes, the old politically correct multi-culture crowd again. The bottom line is that such people always veer away from the actual consequences of what they do. Though I do digress, this instance shows their mentality. When Czechlosavkia started to crack down on the so-called Roma, about 35 of those people claimed refugee status in Canada. A woman human rights person waxed enthusiastic and said this "adds an exciting mix to the culture".
I was security in a large mall, when a warning went out for said Roma. In short, they were there to steal everyone blind. It is their culture.
Anyway excuse the ramble from up in Great Lakes Country at the St Mary's River dividing Ontario from Michigan. The leaves are glorious in colour, the weather balmy. We all know what is coming.
