Don’t jump to any conclusions, folks. They’re just misguided youths who were probably vacationing in Somalia when they got caught up with some bad apples.
Up to three American teenaged terrorists were among those who attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya’s foreign minister Amina Mohamed said on Monday.
The Americans, aged between 18 and 19, of Somali or Arab origin, lived in Minnesota and one other place in the U.S, she said in an interview with PBS’ NewsHour.
The revelation would support other information posted onto Twitter, which suggested the terror cell which carried out the attack was 15-strong and contained many nationalities, including citizens of the United States.
The terrorist Al Shabab group that’s claimed responsibility for the attack says its gunmen are still alive and holding hostages in the Nairobi shopping mall they seized four days ago.
The al-Qaida-linked organisation made the claims after Kenyan government assurances of success in the fourth-day of the stand off.
Al-Shabab said the hostages ‘are still alive, looking quite disconcerted but, nevertheless, alive’.
It will only be a matter of time before the trembling left is fretting about a “backlash” against the radical Islamists living in our midst. Instead of worrying about the fact we have terrorists living openly in our country.
US authorities are concerned that Al Shabab is using violent propaganda videos that glorify terrorism to lure youths from Minnesota’s Somali community to fight in the Middle East against the West and its allies.
The Twin Cities has one of the largest Somali communities in the world, with around 80,000 residents emanating from the east African nation, and there are fears that Al Shabab has been actively recruiting from it.
WCCO-TV reported that one recruit, Dahir Gure, who has since been killed, said: ‘This is the real Disneyland. You have to join us.’
Minneapolis FBI spokesman Kyle Loven told WCCO: ‘It is troubling, because it uses the medium of video to romanticize what it is to go to Somalia and fight. And it’s appealing, unfortunately, to some young men here in Minneapolis.’
And he told USA Today they are reviewing whether Americans are among the terrorists in Nairobi.
But don’t worry, folks, when we open the floodgates for all the illegal aliens Democrats will make sure none of them are terrorists. They’ll vouch for them while registering them to vote.
