[Subtitle:] Trump called state a terror recruitment hotbed.
[PHOTO caption:] Mohamoud Ibrahim, right, a specialist in the Army Reserve, said goodbye to his friends after the Friday prayer at the Islamic Institute of Minnesota's mosque in Burnsville, MN, Friday, August 5, 2016. Ibrahim will leave for Wisconsin on Saturday for three weeks for Army training.
Mahamoud Ibrahim stewed about Donald Trump as he packed for a three-week U.S. Army Reserve training. In a Thursday speech, the Republican presidential candidate suggested that Somali refugees have turned Minnesota into a hotbed for terror recruitment and frayed its social safety net. . .

According to Gateway Pundit, the attacker appears to be a Somali Muslim from Minnesota named Seyfudin Mohamud. [Mohamud is from Burnsville, as noted in the comments on this post.--me]
Omer Abdi Mohamed, 26, is one of 18 men charged with recruiting young Somalis from Minneapolis to join terror group al-Shabab, which has links to Al Qaeda.
Terrorism expert Evan Kohlman stated that Portland, Maine is on a very short list of cities from which al-Shabaab recruits members. Kohlman was clear, however, that this is not because Portland has a high number of radicals. Rather, it is because Portland has one of the higher concentrations of Somali refugees in the United States. Because al-Shabaab is a Somali-based group, it primarily seeks to recruit individuals of Somali de[s]cent.
Ann Corcoran at Refugee Resettlement Watch had a post on a Lewiston, Maine Sun Journal story about a series of Somali Émigré attacks on local residents: Police investigate Somali attacks. It is unfortunately indicative of similar actions by Somalis in Minneapolis that included a group engaged in shoving attacks on locals with videos posted on You Tube see this earlier RRW post in November. This summer, there was a YouTube video about Somali youths harassing a gay man in Minneapolis following a gay pride parade.
As you will see in the Sun Journal report about the Lewiston, Maine attacks and robberies, the assessment by those engaged in absorption of these Somali émigrés brought into the US under the benighted US humanitarian refugee laws is to blame it on their adjustment difficulties.
A young man who came to Minnesota as a refugee from Somalia has been linked to Syed Farook, the shooter who, along with his jihadist wife, killed 14 Americans in San Bernardino less than a week ago.
Fox News contributor Rod Wheeler provided a key piece of information about the case, linking the San Bernardino shooters to Mohamed Hassan, a known terrorist recruiter who has been on the FBI radar screen for at least seven years.
What Fox did not report, however, is how Hassan ended up in the United States.
His family came into the U.S. as refugees from Somalia. The Somali refugee program has been going on for decades and has produced some of Americas most feared terrorists, even as the Syrian refugee program grabs most of the headlines.
As WND reported in May, Hassan also helped radicalize Elton Simpson, one of the two jihadists who tried to storm into a Prophet Muhammad drawing contest in Garland, Texas, on May 4.
Visited Minneapolis recently for a ball game; took in the Mall of America: the greatest mass of Muslims I’ve ever seen on American soil.
Welcome to Mogadishu on the Mississippi!! We have been invaded by Somalis and bless their hearts, they dont work, so we give them housing, health care and welfare...GOD bless America!! (Sheesh)
There’s over 800 comments under that article.
This article was written today.
Trumps TRUE statement was in 2015
Trump is correct of course, obviously.
Up in that country it is referred to as the Red Star Tribune. Been a commie rag for decades.
Typical lib boilerplate vacuuous jabber. No factual or empirical evidence to back that up.
That doesn’t matter cause ####ing five are in the army!! Yeah, I know it’s like 5000. I dont give a ####.
They’re not Italian Americans or German or even Japanese Americans.
We LOVED this country. How many individual or group attacks in the US were carried about by us?
The Fort Hood soldier was a muslim too, wasn’t he?
Why not have the soldiers that was wounded by muslim fighters on the news instead?
The next terror attacker here, (and there will be another before Nov, not that i want there to be, it’s just who they are) and all this nonsense will go away.
These people simply aren’t compatible with our way of life.
“The next terror attacker here, (and there will be another before Nov, not that i want there to be, its just who they are) and all this nonsense will go away.”
Notice how the LEO killings, BLM protest riots, and US terror attacks have stopped COLD?

From the Star Tribune
Minnesota leads the nation in the number of people who have left or sought to leave the country to fight with ISIS
Post #8: “I was at the Mall in the 1990s sometime on the way to catch a flight (MSP nearby). I had never seen so many burkas in my entire life, even little 2 year olds dressed in that disgusting attire. I called my relatives to inquire if it was Muslim day at the mall. They all acted like I was an idiot, and why was I asking. Their influx of muslims was actually started by the churches in the Mpls/St Paul area, bringing over refugees. ENJOY!!!”
Bill Clinton began this particular invasion, if my memory serves me...
It was explained to me by someone from the barrio that gangs send young men into the military to get training. The soldier who is the topic of this article may or may not be telling the truth. The fact that it needs to be questioned is based on statistical probabilities, i.e., facts.
Thanks for the link!
Doesn't sound like you're happy in America, Mahmoud.
Maybe you should go back to Somalia.
Don’t feel like the Long Ranger. They are visible in the small SW Missouri town of NOEL! Even have a storefront mosque on main. And they brought their mozlem demands with them.
Never thought I would see the day.
Yes, there are some old post-9/11 articles about Somali Al Qaeda cells in Maine IIRC. I need to dig through the archives on that and Minnesota.
Historically, the Communist Party has favored setting up in rural Minnesota communities because of the amount of remote areas where they can conduct activities outside of close supervision by law enforcement. I would not be surprised if terrorist groups are emulating that strategy.
