As many as 15 Somali-American men have left their homes in Minnesota in recent months to travel to the Middle East and join up with ISIS, the jihadist army at war with Syria and Iraq, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

It is against the law for Americans to independently travel overseas to fight in civil wars or armed conflicts against foreign governments. FoxNews.com has written about Americans who went to join the war in Syria in the past, including Eric Harroun, a onetime U.S. Army soldier from Arizona.

After FoxNews.com interviewed Harroun from the battlefield, he traveled back to the U.S., where he was arrested in June 2013. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and was released, then died of an apparent overdose in April.

“Most of [those who left] don’t have the resources to even buy a ticket to go to Chicago. So that means there is some influential individuals who are taking advantage of our youth,” Mohamud Noor, executive director of the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, told MPR. “So it’s up to us to defend ourselves. This is not only a fight for our youth. It is a fight for our future.”

if ANY of these migrants leave and go overseas to fight for islamic Jihad NEVER let them back in again . Screw their so-called U.S. citizenship , they are NOT Americans . We cast our pearls to swine and these are the swine . They need to be reported for leaving and 100% blacklisted if they ever try to reenter . No exceptions .

Say what you want about FDR. Big government socialist, etc., etc.

But he never would have let the Gitmo prisoners just sit there, as Bush did. It would have been quick trials, then if guilty, quick executions. If you doubt that, just Google Operation Pastorius.

And FDR never would have put up with this Somali crap, not for a second.

Before oil was discovered in the middle-east, world was not terrorized by Islamists. After they had oil money, rich Muslims donate money in the name of Jihad in the hope Allah will invite them to his heaven.

“Exactly

Fly into Mexico city then bus it to the border. Feign that you cannot speak English. Give them a false name.

Next day leave and catch a bus home.

They shouldn't be allowed back. In fact, their friends and families can all go back to hell with them.

Recently, Al Shabab fighters from Somolia entered Kenya and slaughtered several score civilians. They said in retaliation for what Kenyan soldiers have done in Somolia.

When they return alive, will they receive a tickertape parade and 72 virgins (or make believe ones)?

And will the American taxpayer erect a mosque in their honor?

If we have to choose between the two, I would choose this one. The more who don't come back, the better.

This is interesting. Just the other day we watched the movie “Captain Phillips” the story about the Somalie pirates taking an American Captain hostage. Afterwards I looked it up on the internet cause I wondered how much was true and what parts were dramatized. Turns out it was the Somali pirates first acting gig, aside from local stuff, and they hail from Minnesota, which I read had a sizable Somali population.

Sounds like an elder Boston bomber. He was back to Dagestan for jihad until his Canadian pal got toasted by the Russians so we went home again for soft targets.

These Somalis are not American by any stretch. They are bloody Muslim savages imported from a savage land. The enemy is in our midst.

We “infidels” should govern ourselves accordingly.

The job pays more than the minimum wage. If the minimum wage was increased they probably would have continued to freeze in the Minnesota Peoples Republic

They should have never been brought into this country in the first place. They have no business here.

The Official Immigration Policies of the United States are taken from various issues of the National Geographic magazine of the late '40s and early '50s. That is, the quaint and colorful Kodachromed natives in those articles are your new neighbors and the new voter base of the Democrat Party. E.G., See the Bolivian Market Lady wearing four derby hats! Meet the Somali slave dealer!

Read the articles and you'll learn about their fascinating cultures based on Islam, polygamy, slavery, camel, goat, and sheep rustling and intertribal raids. BTW, the modern National Geographic is sickening in its political correctness!

Now, Americans ... such as they are ... no longer need travel to exotic climes or read National Geographic. Just go down main street and make a left at Martin Luther King Boulevard.

He was a man of his time, too. It is hard to take the man out of his era, and compare precise events. Bush back then would have done the same, as we didn’t have half the country as a fifth column then.

whose bright idea is it to throw open the doors of immigration to shiftless African muslims ? Nothing could be more foreign to American society and this particular ungrateful group show an alarming tendency towards not assimilating , insisting on the communities they settle in to instead comport and comply with their needs and cultural considerations . Then there is the strong tendency of the Somali youth to be inclined towards this jihad bs ....
Never forget how they dragged our troops bodies thru the streets of Mogadishu . And then we let them immigrate here?
