Daily Wire: FOX News reports that “more men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.”
“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined,” Fox News continued. “And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.”
As FOX notes, “the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground” for Islamic terrorism as the Somali population in the Minneapolis community — which is located in Omar’s district — is nearly 100,000. more …
Opinion: Minnesota’s 5th district has over 700,000 residents. With 36 percent of the district people of color, a median age of 34 and over 100,000 African immigrants, the 5th District has the smallest geographic footprint in the state but is the most densely populated and now the most anti-Semitic.
According to the FBI, more Somali American men and boys from this district have joined, or have attempted to join, a foreign terror organization in the last 12 years than any other community in the US.
In 2018, a dozen more Somalis were arrested, accused of planning to leave the US to join ISIS.
It began 12 years ago when Keith Ellison was elected to Congress from the 5th District. On swearing-in day, Ellison was the first US Congressman to stand on the House floor with his hand ceremonially on the Koran.
Ellison raised his right hand and solemnly swore to support and defend the Constitution “so help me God.”
Ellison was a highly charged Representative who came under repeated scrutiny for his years-old association with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam with a proclivity for making anti-Semitic comments, and more recently with charges of domestic abuse that the mainstream press defended by keeping the allegations quiet.
Louis Farrakhan, who once described Adolf Hitler as a “very great man”, has lots of friends in high places.
In 2018, Ellison went on to become Minnesota’s Attorney General and supported Ilhan Omar to replace him in the 5th district. She was also sworn in with her hand on the Koran.
In just a little over 2 months in office, Omar was elevated to the prestigious House Foreign Affairs Committee and has made no secret of her anti-American/anti-Semitic/pro-Islam ideology. Ilhan seems to find terror amusing.
