As the new flood of Muslim refugees inundates the U.S., stories like this will become daily fare. There needs to be a massive investigation of the mosques in the Twin Cities and the surrounding areas, to see what they’re teaching to encourage this. But there will not be.

Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame

“Tenth Somali-American arrested in Minnesota for aiding ISIS,” RT, December 10, 2015 (thanks to TheReligionofPeace.com):

Federal agents in Minneapolis have arrested a 20-year-old man of Somali origin who they say was the “emir” – or leader – of Islamic State recruiting efforts in Minnesota’s Twin Cities.

Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame of Eagan, Minnesota appeared in the US District Court in Minneapolis on Thursday morning, to answer the charges of supplying material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He was arrested without incident on Wednesday evening, the FBI said.

The criminal complaint against Warsame, signed by FBI Special Agent Vadim Vinetsky, says that a group of at least ten young Somalis from Minnesota began conspiring to join Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the spring of 2014. One member of the group, 18-year-old Abdi Nir, actually managed to get to Syria in May 2014, while nine others have been arrested by the FBI.

A FBI informant inside the group secretly recorded the April 2015 conversation between Warsame and Guled Ali Omar, at the time the leader of the recruiting effort, discussing the possibility of robbing people in order to finance the group’s travel to Syria, according to court documents. Omar is the one who promoted Warsame to leadership, the FBI said.

In another conversation, involving Abdirahman Yasin Daud, Warsame said he was thinking of going to Somalia first. There might not even be any need to proceed to Syria, he told Daud, if Somalia’s al-Shabab pledged allegiance to Islamic State, said the FBI documents.

Daud was arrested later that month in California, where he and Mohamed Abdihamid Farah were allegedly planning to cross into Mexico with fraudulent passports. Omar was arrested around the same time in Minnesota, along with Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, Adnan Farah, and Hanad Mustafe Musse.

Only Nir succeeded in making it over to Syria, where he has been recruiting for Islamic State, the complaint says. Three of the men have pleaded guilty, while five are scheduled to go on trial in May….

    The only way way to win is close down Mosques, ban Burqa, stop street prayers, Curfew of Muslims.

    I know what I would love to do, but I would be arrested in shooting them all. Some would say I would become like them, but evil is evil and they need to go before they kill us.

      “street prayers” I’ve heard of one incident in Los Angeles where a mob of Muslims shut down one public street (it was not a main thoroughfare) for one of their daily prayers. Is that happening in Minnesota, too? Blocking a road to pray or blocking a road to protest (BLM) should be swiftly dealt with by the police. The police should act to immediately clear the street.

      You’re exactly right. It’s useless to investigate mosques, their all evil. Only thing to do is to remove Islam from planet. Do you want to fight, or do you want to win. Destroy their shrine in Mecca, and it is essentially over. Are any of you ready for Armageddon? Hope your all making plans, because the time to talk is near over and time to pick sides. This isn’t rocket science.

      • knight

        I just want peace, best is for Muslims to just go back to Arabia and set themselves out.

        We also got to take those that push this evil even in our countries for power and greed.

        • Bradley Lexvold

          We all want peace. The only way for that is to be equals. In Christianity repentance, when done right, brings you back up to the same moral level as others. Islam is putting others beneath you. It is wrong to let others believe in a lie. How they come to Christianity is up to them, and we must be prepared to respond to different actions from them. It isn’t proactive, but reactive, but proactive is to openly call them to Christ. Some one is going to win, and someone is going to lose. That is how this will end. No more uneasy peace or cessation of hostilities. I wrote a book ” Call to Armageddon and Beyond” and I have 90% of it on my website http://www.secedelinks.org so I hope you are preparing for the inevitable. We don’t need leaders, because if people are easy to lead, they are also easy to lead astray. It took many founding fathers to put together a constitution, and because it was many working toward a common objective, they succeeded.

            Straight forward tells us we will have peace when Christ returns.
            Prophercy in the making as it happens.

      I couldn’t bring myself to watch another video about rape. It upsets me to just to think about those girls. However, keep exposing this evil until everyone knows about rape jihad.

      • knight

        The trouble is they have moved into rape gangs, looking for females that like non whites, and the young they chase on the internet.

        You never hear of arrest of Muslims for pushing sex with the young on the internet. They go after our young and our government does nothing. Yes there is wrong with Caucasions, but not Muslims and our authorities need to block them dead.
        How many have become friends with Muslims on the net, loads.
        Muslims are winning on the net with sex.

    Why isn’t the NSA aggressively identifying and imprisoning/deporting these people?

    • AbstractME

      Because they’re too busy focusing on the rest of us.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Because anthropogenic global warming is the major problem today, don’t-cha-know?

    • Thewordman

      Mass surveillance isn’t for catching terrorist. It is for keeping political dissidents from organizing and unseating established and entrenched political royalty.

      If mass surveillance was to catch bad guys, then what are they waiting for? it’s been well over 15 years. Not one bad guy caught.

      The DHS is run by the Muslim brotherhood. Operation Trojan Horse.

      The F.B.I are neutered by the Muhammad administration. Every time they get close to a terrorist cell on U.S. soil, the administration stops them from discovering them, siting “racial profiling”.

      We as a nation are on our own for protection. Arm yourselves. Practice. Defend your nation. It’s your constitution duty.

    • Bradley Lexvold

      Thank God for the internet so we are aware of this. Awareness is one thing but a solid plan of action forward is best. Saying someone needs to do something about this is over. Become that which is necessary.
