MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Food shelves can be a life line for people dealing with poverty and hunger.

But many in the Somali-American community say finding a food shelf that caters to their religious dietary restrictions is almost impossible.

“Some food shelves are trying to meet the need, but some of them already got canned beans that have already been mixed with pork — and there is a literacy issue here,” said community activist Fartun Weli.

A group of first-generation Somali Americans says they need help in developing a food shelf that specializes in healthy foods that do not contain pork or pork byproducts.

“It’s about human rights also, basic human rights to get the proper food and also healthy food,” said Imam Hassan Mohamud.

With signs in hand, they marched to the Hennepin County commissioners’ office to ask Peter McLaughlin for help. Most live in his district and feel he can help them help themselves.

McLaughlin and the group disagree over the availability of halal or kosher food at food shelves in Minnesota.

He did say they would need to petition all county commissioners for the money to make this food shelf a reality.

“The place to deal with this is going to be within the budget … our budget for next year,” McLaughlin said.

To get the food shelf up and running will cost $150,000, but McLaughlin says there is no plan on how much would be needed to sustain it.

The group hopes to present a proposal to the county commissioners during its budget meeting on Nov 13.

We suspect that the numbers of Somali’s easily trumps the numbers of Iraqi imports who are unemployed, refuse to integrate into American society and simply live of the tax dollars stolen from working Americans. And we know Somali Muslims are prime candidates for waging jihad.

 In a previous Taxation for Islamization installment, we told you the massive government waste Farm Bill included amendment ensuring halal food for poor Muslims (and kosher for Jews).

 

Minnesota: At least three young Muslim women left U.S. to aid ISIS jihadis

At least three should never be allowed to return to the U.S. And at least one mosque shut down. via At least three young Minnesota women have traveled to Syria to aid ISIS jihidis | Mail Online.

At least three young Minnesota women are now believed to have traveled to Syria to give aid to the ISIS terror group responsible for the brutal beheadings of American journalists, MailOnline has learned.

The trio left some three weeks ago, Omar Jamal, a leader of the Somali community in the state capital, St. Paul, tells MailOnline. They said they intended to become nurses tending to fighters injured in ISIS’ violent surge in Syria and Iraq.

The news comes as 19-year-old suburban Denver woman Shannon Conley who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help the Islamic State militant group in Syria.

The case of one of the Minnesota girls, a 19-year-old, has already been widely reported, after the girl’s family called the FBI, but Jamal said he believes at least two more girls have gone to the Middle East hotspot.

‘Their identity is not known because their families have not contacted the authorities,’ said Jamal. ‘They have gone to Syria but as there are no official reports of them we do not know who they are.’

The shocking new revelation comes as MailOnline can reveal that the FBI has subpoenaed the 19-year-old girl’s family to appear before a Grand Jury later this month, as authorities attempt to discover who bought her ticket, gave her money and provided her with a false passport.

There is no suggestion that the family is under criminal investigation, said one law enforcement source with knowledge of the subpoena.

‘They are looking for evidence on exactly what the family knows,’ said the source. Included in the subpoena is a demand for cell phone records as the girl called her brother from Turkey and later, after she crossed the border, from Syria.

However, Jamal said the girl’s family is worried about what may happen at the Grand Jury hearing and feels ‘betrayed’ by the FBI’s action as it believed it had done the right thing by contacting authorities in the first place while the families of the two unidentified girls do not have to appear.

FBI’s Minnesota spokesman Kyle Loven told MailOnline he ‘is not in a position to comment’ on the subpoena because the case of the missing girl is an ongoing investigation. ‘I cannot confirm and will not deny its existence,’ he said.

The teen, who turns 20 next month, was about to start nursing classes at St. Paul College but decided to leave to give aid to wounded fighters. Jamal said he is sure she will not be placed into front line battle but it is possible she would be married off to one of the ISIS fighters.

She is the middle of five children brought up by a single Somali mother, living off St. Paul’s Selby Avenue.

She had recently started taking classes at al-Farook Youth and Family Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington, said Bob Fletcher, a former sheriff in St. Paul, who has dedicated himself to helping the Twin Cities’ large Somali community since being defeated in an election in 2010.

Al-Farook has been at the center of claims that Amir Meshal, an alleged recruiter for ISIS, had been talking to youngsters on its site. The mosque kicked the New Jersey-born man off campus, but now the Minneapolis-St. Paul Fox TV station has raised questions of whether Meshal is actually an FBI mole rather than an ISIS recruiter.

‘What we don’t know is whether al-Farook is part of the problem or part of the solution right now,’ said Jamal. ‘And who is Amir Meschal? Where did he come from? Did he recruit these girls?’

Meshal sued the FBI in federal court in 2009 claiming he was tortured and held for four months in three different countries after being apprehended crossing the Somali border into Kenya.

The young woman who is known to have gone to Syria traveled on a ‘borrowed’ passport. However the passport holder did not report it was missing until the girl had already entered Syria, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

In the family’s only comments, a male relative asked in the Star-Tribune: ‘How many more kids have to die before we do something about it?

‘Those animals who are taking our children are what we’re concerned about. We love this country more than anything else. I love America. We don’t want to see anything bad happen here. This is the most dangerous thing happening to this country.’

Islamophobe.

Despite the violent imagery, Fletcher, the retired sheriff, said recruitment to ISIS is appealing to young Muslims because they get the feeling they are in at the start of something new, an Islamic state, hat they believe can offer them a future they fail to see in America.

‘Many Somalis are struggling as their transition to the American life has been difficult. They have been here a shorter time than most immigrants and their arrival coincided with a downturn in the economy so many have not been able to find work.

You know who’s not struggling? The Catholic Charities and other organizations who make tens of millions of dollars importing jihad and sharia supporters, knowing there are no jobs and no future for most of them.

‘Many also came here without fathers, who had either been killed in the war or did not make the trip, so on occasion the extremist religious leader becomes their father-figure.’

Extremist religious leaders in America? Where? Again, shut the mosque down. Deport the imams.

He said that going to be a nurse in an ISIS stronghold like Raqqa in northern Syria is also attractive because it is portrayed as relatively stable away from the frontline battle and a place where volunteers can start to build the infrastructure of a new city.

 

Muslim Terror Group al-Shabaab Video Seeks Recruits in Minnesota

Al-Shabaab, al-Qaida’s Somali affiliate, wants Muslims from Minnesota to sign up. A new video released last week by the terrorist group’s media arm, the Al-Kataib Foundation, urges Minnesotans along with jihadists from Great Britain, Germany and other non-Muslim nations to join its jihad.

Four Somali fighters appear in the video with their faces digitally obscured sitting while sitting with their AK-47s.

“Those that are living in the U.S., especially Minnesota, Great Britain, Germany and many parts of the kuffar (unbelieving) world, you have a decision to make today,” one of the fighters says in slightly accented English.

Al-Shabaab already attracted numerous foreign Muslims from abroad to its ranks, including British-born Samantha Lewthwaite, aka the “White Widow,” and Omar Shafik Hammami (AKA Abu Mansour al-Amriki), an American-born jihadist. Hammami, an Alabama native and Muslim convert, served as a leading propagandist for the group before being killed in September 2013.

At least 40 Americans, mostly from the Minneapolis area, have joined the terrorist group, along with 20 to 25 Canadians.

Several Americans died fighting for the terrorist group – including one as a suicide bomber.

“If you choose to not make this decision and not answer the call of Allah, note that there is a clear evidence against you on the day of judgment in the court of Allah,” the man in the video said. “For what are you still living in Dar al-kuffar [Land of disbelief] for? Is it the schools, the jobs and the settlements you have? Know that this world is only temporary and the hereafter is eternal.

“So save your souls from the great punishment of Allah … and make Hijrah,” he continues. “Come join us.”

In a direct verbal attack against the United States, the masked man reminds Americans of the defeat they suffered in Mogadishu in 1993 when the bodies of their soldiers were dragged through the streets.

He also celebrates last year’s attack against the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya that left 67 people dead. U.S. forces launched a drone attack against Al-Shabaab Tuesday in an effort to kill the Ahmed Abdi Godane, the group’s leader widely believed to have been behind the mall attack.

“Know that our war against you is not based on geographical borders or securing tiny strips of land, but between truth and falsehood” the masked man said. “You should know that this war will continue until the last drop of your blood is spilled.”

Minnesota: Muslim Teen Girl from St. Paul Left to Join ISIS

As we told you earlier in the week in this post: Dozen Muslims from Twin Cities fighting with ISIS, teen girl recruited last week

via St. Paul Woman Leaves Minnesota to Fight for ISIS | KSTP TV – Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The latest person to leave Minnesota and travel to Syria to fight for ISIS is a 19-year-old Somali woman who had been living in St. Paul. It’s a troubling development considering recruiting in Somali communities has been limited to men in the past. Now, women appear to be the new targets.

Kyle Loven with the FBI in Minnesota says the Bureau is working closely with the local Somali community to prevent this from happening.

“We are very actively engaged within the Somali community,” Loven said. “We’re engaged with religious leaders. We’re engaged with community leaders, and we’re engaged with concerned members of the public who are abhorred by what they see with respect to their young people and want to put a stop to it.”

The FBI says their investigation is ongoing, and they continue to look for connections between the young people on the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul and ISIS in Syria. The community is trying to help.

The FBI is failing Americans. They claimed to have halted jihad recruiting in Minnesota years ago, but the jihadi pipeline appears stronger than ever.

Little Mogadishu is just like the real Mogadishu. Full of jihad sympathisers, full of jihad preaching imams, and full of slick suit-and-tie Muslims who lie to law enforcement and the media. More via Latest ISIS Recruit From Minn. Is A 19-Year-Old Woman

Somali-American leaders say they know of at least two other young women who have also left, and they believe at least 15 Minnesotans are among at least 100 Americans who have joined ISIS from around the world.

No one is quite sure when the 19-year-old woman left Minnesota for Syria. Two weeks ago distraught family members reached out to community activist Abdi Bihi.

“They told me they were missing a young girl for about a week, and that young girl made a call to them from, allegedly, Egypt,” Bihi said.

The next night, the family got another call.

“They told me that she called from Syria,” Bihi said. “She basically told them that she’s going to help the wounded in the war as a nurse.”

Nurse, jihadist, sex slave?

The family members have reported what they know to the FBI, but that they have no idea when or how she was recruited.

Bihi said someone on the ground in Minnesota is giving these young people money.

“Somebody in here is buying a ticket these children cannot afford,” Bihi said. “They do not know where Syria is, someone is guiding them.”

Bihi believes ISIS is luring some recruits with a sophisticated media campaign.

That campaign is led by a well-educated affluent Muslim from Boston.

The training went on for four nights in both downtowns, scaring and angering more than a few neighbors. The helicopters came without warning, and under cover of darkness.

“There were a lot of black choppers running around the city. It was like an action movie. Nobody knew what was going on,” said Marcus Naramore, who lives in downtown Minneapolis.

Several military helicopters spent hours slicing and dicing their way through the Minneapolis and St. Paul skylines.

The training exercises raised questions from all corners. That now includes the Minneapolis city council.

“I think the one question that came out of it was, ‘Why didn’t we know?'” said Minneapolis council member Blong Yang, the chair of the public safety committee.

It’s no coincidence that the St. Paul-Minneapolis area is ground zero for Islamic jihad recruitment in the U.S.

Obama has yet to ban Muslim jihadis from returning to the U.S.

In fact, they won’t even arrest Muslims who admit attending jihad training camps, as the link below details.

Fox 9 has learned some of the travelers to Syria for ISIS had occasionally attended Al-Farooq, including a 19-year old St. Paul girl who left for Syria two weeks ago.

Dozen Muslims from Twin Cities fighting with ISIS, teen girl recruited last week

In between Muslim and media propaganda about disaffected youth with nothing better to do with their lives than go to foreign lands to wage jihad, we find out as recently as “a week ago” a Muslim girl left to wage jihad in Syria. Or service jihadis somewhere. via American Terror Pipeline: Nearly a Dozen From Twin Cities Gone to Fight in Syria – ABC News.

…top U.S. officials have previously said more than 100 Americans have joined the fighting in Syria – nearly a dozen of them from the Twin Cities alone, as two U.S. law enforcement officials told ABC News Thursday. And a community leader said at least one who left for Syria recently is a teenage girl.

Another community leader, Abdirazak Bihi, said, “As recently as a week ago, a young girl was recruited along some others, and was sent to Syria and called her family from Syria a couple days ago.”

“Yes, people are recruiting, there are recruiters here,” Bihi said.

It’s interesting that so-called Muslim leaders know recruiting is going on, they even know who has been recruited and left and when they contact home. Yet they won’t call out the imams and mosques where recruiting takes place. Maybe THEY are the problem. 

But Noor acknowledges that that doesn’t explain why so many are specifically being recruited from his city, and says that one reason so much focus is on the Twin Cities is because there is a large “newly-arrived” immigrant community, with many Somalis and Middle Easterners, and because the community isn’t shy about reaching out for help when someone does disappear, possibly into battles a world away.

Another reason might be that the Congressman is a Muslim and comforts America’s enemies.

Loven said that al-Shabab’s previous success in recruiting Minnesotans may have shown the area’s disaffected youths to be particularly susceptible to the jihadist propaganda. Earlier this week, for instance, al-Shabab released a recruitment video online that specifically called for those living in Minnesota to come join their fight.

Meanwhile, the FBI is investigating the “leak” of nude celebrity photos and the real JV team, the State Department, Won’t Confirm If Passports of Americans Fighting With ISIS Have Been Revoked.

 

Minnesota: Obama DOJ Sues to Force Another Mosque on America, City Fights Back

Another mosque from which to recruit Muslims to wage jihad.

Not the first time terror-friendly Eric Holder’s Dept. of Jihad has done this.

Creeping Sharia told you about the situation in St. Anthony back in 2012 and even warned that Americans didn’t stand a chance against the Feds & Hamas-CAIR, in Feds assist terror-linked CAIR to force mosque on Minn. town.

The latest via Obama’s DOJ Sues Minnesota City for Rejecting Islamic Center.

The Department of Justice has announced that it is suing the small town of St. Anthony, Minnesota, after a two-year investigation into the town’s denial of a permit to create an Islamic cultural center.

The DOJ claims that the north Minneapolis town broke a federal law when it rejected the center in 2012.

“An injustice has been done,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said on August 27. “I will not stand by while any religious group is subject to unconstitutional treatment that violates federal civil rights laws.”

Apparently Luger will stand by when Minnesota mosques are used to recruit Muslims to wage jihad abroad, when Muslims threaten to shoot up schools, and when millions of illegal aliens – including known murderers, gangsters, rapists and Islamic terrorists – waltz across the border. He’ll stand for all that.

The DOJ claims that the city violated the law when it refused the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to create an Islamic cultural center in the basement of the St. Anthony Business Center. The DOJ cites a violation of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act that was enacted in the year 2000.

In his press conference, Luger said that if local voters rose up to force their politicians to allow the Islamic center to be established and follow his interpretation of the law he would consider withdrawing the lawsuit.

Lugar may be putting hope in the wrong people, however, as many voters actually spoke out against the center at a city council meeting in June of 2012.

But the city fathers insist that the decision to deny the permit is based solely on zoning issues and had nothing to do with religion.

“Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city,” City Attorney Jay Lindgren said. “They are just not allowed in the roughly 5 percent of the city reserved for industrial uses. … An industrial zone is designed to create jobs and be an economic engine.”

We have an entire category of this recurring theme of Muslims disregarding U.S. law titled Zoning jihad.

To buttress its case, the DOJ claimed that there were examples in the past of the city allowing some religious groups to use the zoned areas and also allowing non-industrial uses. But Lindgren said that the city has denied permits to religious sects other than Muslims in the past, proving, he said, that the town isn’t discriminating against Muslims.

“The city will vigorously defend its actions,” Lindgren insisted this week. “Doesn’t matter whether it’s a mosque, synagogue, church–none are allowed in the area intended for manufacturing and offices where jobs are put into place.”

Good for the city. Citizens should stand and fight with their elected officials as the federal bureaucrats continue to disregard states rights, the Constitution and any law they don’t like.
