    Shortened title. Full title: Minneapolis taxpayers must pay public housing rent for Somalis that spend their income on travel back to Somalia What a deal! Come to the United States, and if you spend your income (even that from welfare and refugee programs) on travel to Somalia instead of paying your rent in public housing, whey the suckers taxpayers of Minneapolis will pick up the tab. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports (via Refugee Resettlement Watch): Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by...

    The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder. And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart. What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common? New Jersey has...

    At a press conference addressing a jihadist attack in Minnesota, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) warned Muslims are now potential victims at risk of being harmed in retaliation. CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation. The St. Cloud, Minnesota, mass stabbing occurred at the city’s Crossroads Center mall on Saturday night. A Somali man allegedly shouted, “Allah,” as he stabbed nine people before he was shot dead by an off-duty officer. All nine victims stabbed at the Crossroads Center mall...

    ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Authorities are investigating the stabbings of nine people at a Minnesota mall as a potential act of terrorism, a finding that would realize long-held fears of an attack in the immigrant-rich state that has struggled to stop the recruiting of its young men by groups including the Islamic State. A young Somali man dressed as a private security guard entered the Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud over the weekend wielding what appeared to be a kitchen knife. The city’s police chief said the man reportedly made at least one reference to Allah and asked a...

    The Obama administration gave Somali Muslims behind-the-scenes tours at a major U.S. airport after the group complained to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about feeling harassed and profiled, government records obtained by Judicial Watch reveal. The special security tours not offered to any other group occurred at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after Department of Homeland Security (DHS) roundtable meetings with local Somali leaders to obtain feedback for “modifications to practices that would allow for operations to be more culturally sensitive.” On at least two occasions—December 18, 2014 and February 18, 2015—federal authorities granted the unprecedented excursions of the facility’s...

    How does a Somali get elected to Minnesota’s state legislature? Because she’s from “Little Somalia,” Minneapolis, home to the largest Somali community in America. So it should come as not surprise that a Somali activist unseated one of the longest-serving members of the state legislature earlier this year in Minneapolis. Ilhan Omar defeated Rep. Phyllis Kahn who was in the legislature for 22 terms (44 years). Omar could be the first Somali in America to be elected to any state legislature if she wins in November. Minneapolis is recruiting ground for young terrorists. At least 36 Somali men from Minnesota...

The workers filed for unemployment payments after they were fired in December by Cargill Meat Solutions, amid a dispute over whether the Muslim employees could take prayer breaks during their shifts. Cargill challenged the claims, but the company withdrew its appeals this summer after losing 20 cases, officials with the state Department of Labor said. ... the payments could cost Colorado’s unemployment fund nearly...

The Friends of Smith Park started a petition drive and took its case to the Bloomington City Council with a formal complaint Monday night. At issue is the Dar al-Farooq mosque, which WND has previously reported has a record of turning Somali refugees into jihadists for ISIS and other terror groups.

The allegation sparked a call by Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., for an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security, of which TSA is a part. In a letter to Jeh Johnson, secretary of...

It initially will be applied to four men who have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to the Islamic State group, and Davis said it could be expanded to supervise other terror...

But if our society and culture were healthy, the President and politicians all over the country would be rushing to the aid of Lewiston's mayor, instead of letting him twist in the wind.

Investigators with the Minnesota Department of Human Services were also seen entering and exiting the building but directed all questions to the FBI. Parents trying to drop off their children for daycare were turned away at the door. Investigators were later seen carrying files and computers...

    President Barack Obama got four mayors to fully endorse his nationwide program to “build welcoming communities” for millions of “new Americans” and roll out the red carpet. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed — who recently made headlines for terminating his city’s fire chief over a Christian book that described homosexual behavior as sin — signed on late last month to join three other mayors of major American cities: Los Angeles’ Eric Garcetti, Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel and Nashville’s Karl Dean. Reed’s message to the millions of refugees and immigrants entering the country: Come to Atlanta. “Reed became the nation’s fourth mayor to...

    Nearly 50 mosques, Muslim organizations and student groups have signed a statement that highlights concerns with a federal pilot program to combat radicalization and terror recruitment in Minnesota. “While we support the right of all Americans to live in democratic communities free of violence, we cannot in good conscience condone or help refine programs that are fundamentally discriminatory and are likely to further subject our community members to additional civil rights abuses,” said the statement released by the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The statement lists 44 Muslim organizations as undersigned supporters, as well as the National...

    A Minneapolis man has been charged with threatening law enforcement officials after authorities charged six men earlier this week with trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group. Mahamed Abukar Said appeared in federal court in St. Paul on Friday. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Perzel says Said tweeted threats. He's accused of tweeting one threat that said if the men weren't freed, there would be a "massacre." He is also accused of tweeting a picture of the FBI informant in the case.

    A federal judge ruled Thursday that the four Minnesota men arrested this week will be held until they can be tried on charges that they planned to leave the Twin Cities to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIL, overseas. In the morning, after nearly three hours of testimony from an FBI agent, U.S. Magistrate Judge Becky Thorson said officials have gathered substantial evidence against the men. Attorneys for the men argued that officials had built a thin case primarily on the testimony of another man who eventually served as a paid confidential informant. They had asked...

    We are learning more about one of the six Minnesota men accused of trying to join ISIS. The sister of 20-year-old Guled Omar spoke to WCCO Wednesday evening. “I believe that my brother is innocent and that he didn’t do anything wrong,” Shukri Omar said.

Guled Omar was active on social media. In his Twitter feed, we found Omar threatened to sue the U.S. government after federal agents kept him...

    Adnan Abdihamid Farah's parents took his passport away last year when it came in the mail, and his mother would later tell authorities she feared her son would "disappear." She also stopped the 19-year-old from traveling with his brother, Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, when the siblings told her they were going to Chicago. Mohamed - who was older and given more freedom - made the trip and instead ended up in San Diego, where authorities say he was bound for Mexico and ultimately the Islamic State group in Syria. "I cry all day," their mother, Ayan Farah, said Wednesday. "I don't...

  • What's the threat -- Minnesotans or Somali-Americans?

    Yesterday I started a thread 6 Somali-Americans Arrested in ISIS Recruiting Case, linking to a New York Times article with the same title and remarking that the NYT would usually use a title like "6 Minnesota Men Arrested". Sure enough, the NYT has reverted to PC, and the article is now titled "6 Minnesotans Held in Plot to Join ISIS". Who poses more of a terrorist threat -- non-Somali Minnesotans or non-Minnesotan Somalis in America? Since the answer is the latter, the original NYT headline was the right one. But the media does not want people to notice certain patterns.
