Several months ago, I told you about Shirwa Ahmed and other Minnesota Muslims of Somali descent who disappeared and were believed to have become homicide bombers. As I noted, the boys and men were radicalized at their Minnesota mosque, the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center. And I noted that Ahmed was the Al-Shabab terrorist group’s recruiter here in America.
Well, yesterday, FBI Director Robert Mueller–who for 7.5 years has been telling us how “moderate” and “peaceful” American Muslims are–finally admitted the obvious, that Ahmed was radicalized here, which led to his homicide bombing death in northern Somalia in October. He was recruited here, he was radicalized here. Mueller noted this before the Council on Foreign Relations, a group which is a fellow traveler in the “moderate American Muslim” bullcrap theory.
It appears that this individual was radicalized in his hometown in Minnesota.
Flashback: Video on Shirwa Ahmed’s Funeral, His Mosque & His Imam . . .
Duh. And D’oh. Where is the FBI when it comes to his mosque? Nowhere to be seen. Not a single mosque member has been arrested, even though evidence points to Ahmed’s imam, who leads a mosque that has seen many Somali-Americans disappear to Somalia to become jihadists.
And Mueller continues to get it wrong on this. He claims:
A man from Minneapolis became what we believe to be the first U.S. citizen to carry out a terrorist suicide bombing.
But that’s not true. In fact, there have been other Americans–including one from Texas–who’ve previously been found to have fomented terrorist attacks in Somalia. I’ve written about it on this site. Ahmed is just the first one the FBI bothered to notice . . . far too late.
This whole thing is nothing new, since we know other Muslims were radicalized here–but we’re not supposed to say so because, ya know, American Muslims are “different” and “moderate.” Or at least that’s the line we’re supposed to toe, even though we know it’s a lie. There were the Lackawanna Six. Yes, they trained overseas for terrorism, but they got the idea to do it, while hanging in their native Buffalo. And then, there was John Allen Muhammad and his “Allah One” route–the name he picked for assassinating random Americans as a sniper. And there are so many other such cases.
And we will see the cases increase and escalate because for 7.5 years, George Bush continued to allow Muslims into America, and Barack Hussein Obama continues to do the same.
One other thing: This episode demonstrates the absolute unreliability of the statements of Zuhdi Jasser, the so-called moderate Muslim who pushes upon us the BS that the majority of Muslims are peaceful (which is why thousands of them marched on the streets of Dearborn in support of Hezbollah and HAMAS for weeks in 2006 and 2009).
Jasser kept claiming that Shirwa Ahmed’s mosque and the imam of the mosque, Sheikh Abdirahman Ahmed (who is on the no-fly list), are blameless and moderate, even though many Muslims from that mosque become radicalized by him and travel to Somalia to kill countless others.
You can’t believe a thing Jasser says. And you shouldn’t believe Robert Mueller has finally come to his senses 7.5 years after 9/11. He continues to pander to, excuse, and apologize for mosques like the one that was the impetus for Shirwa Ahmed’s Somalian one-way explosion trip.
