Skip to comments.Court Records: Mall of America Stabbing Suspect Pleads Guilty, Calls it Act of Jihad
Posted on 01/26/2018 8:25:21 PM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo
On Thursday, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham pleaded guilty to stabbing two men at the Mall of America.
The incident occurred on Nov. 12, where authorities say he stabbed two brothers in a dressing room at the mall's Macy's.
At the plea hearing Thursday, Abdiraham's attorney read a statement which is public record to the courtroom, which explained why he attacked the two men.
In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the "call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-Bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State."
The statement added, "I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah."
Abdiraham also said in the statement that Americans will not be safe as long as "your country is at war with Islam."
Omar Jamal, an activist with a Somali watchdog group, said he is aware of the statement. "This is a widespread sentiment with Somali youth," he said.
Jamal said the federal government's effort to make it difficult for would-be jihadists to travel abroad and join a terrorist group has had unintended consequences locally.
"What is very concerning in this instance, is the fact that youth are exploring more 'How can I do something here, what weapons are accessible,'" he said.
A spokesman for the FBI said the agency is aware of the statement, but could not comment.
A representative for the Bloomington Police Department said it doesn't condone any act when people are hurt or could have been killed.
Abdiraham's public defender declined to comment.
The two victims are out of the country, but court documents say they plan to return in time for Abdiraham's sentencing in February.
If authorities determine the stabbing was an act of terrorism, there could be more legal consequences for Abdirahahm.
Omar Jamal continues to be the useful idiot.
Follow up to my thread from last night...
If he is not a US citizen jail him and then deport him back to the sh*thole he came from and for good measure take away the tax exempt status of his mosque.
Still, no CLEAR MOTIVE! Lone wolf? Reacting to a Trump bad word? Carbon fuels?
It is not the civilized world’s war against Islam.
I is Islam’s war against the civilized world.
As I have stated, I never get tired of that photo.
The victims, the Sanchez brothers must be mechanics, because they gave this clown a real tune up.
Well, that certainly eliminates the act from the category of “hate crime”. It was simply a religious expression.
Yes, it's very concerning that such despicable, brainwashed evil dwells in our midst.
Those willing to perpetrate such evil must be sought out, identified, and removed from American society—along with all who seek to rationalize such actions...

Well, that’s nice to know.
The cops in Minneapolis, the MOA and Bloomington have no idea how to deal with muslims. And they are scared poopless of them.
LOL. Me too. Here's the first booking photo. He's looking a little rough — "better put some ice on that … "
There should be complete travel ban with Somalia. No one from that country enters the USA. They define “shithole.”
Islam is a war plan.
And every week more and more are coming to Minneapolis in the name of "family re-unification". The Minnesota libs think they are such nice folks for forcing these critters upon their fellow citizens. Nobody has the balls to stand up and insist they are quickly destroying a good city and country.
Don't be surprised when he gets a suspended sentence for this since he was "mentally unstable". This is the Liberal Minneapolis (Bloomington) judiciary you are dealing with.
My daughter taught English as a second language in the area and she did fine with the Hispanic and Asian immigrants but she couldn't begin to reason with the Somali parents and families who are raising these animals in our very midst. They will not assimilate to American culture and will be a continuing scourge upon our nation. Tens of thousands of them in Minnesota now with high unemployment, a disdain for American education and law enforcement. The parents were raised in the jungle and they are trying hard to bring it with them.
This is one little social experiment that is failing miserably and will cost the lives of a lot of innocents in the future.
Just keep shipping the Somali pirates north to Trudopia, i.e. Canada. I fear that 2018 is going to make 2017 look like a school field trip in terms of the numbers of phony refugees fleeing Trumps America. 2016 it started with the Somalians, then 2017 was the year of the Haitians. This year it will be the turn of the Salvadorans. If the illegal Mexicans in the US ever look north we are doomed.
What BS! He was stealing wallets and got caught. Even ISIS wouldn’t fall for this.
