About 100 Somalis rallied at the Minnesota State Capitol Saturday, demanding the release of six terror suspects.
They want the attacks against them stopped, they claimed.
Six Somali men were arrested for trying to join ISIS along with two in San Diego and another who made Twitter threats. The mothers of three of the terrorists were at the protest.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger admitted last Monday that they have a problem in this community.
“To be clear, we have a terror-recruitment problem in Minnesota,” he said at a press conference Monday in Minneapolis. “This case demonstrates how difficult it is to put an end to recruiting here.”
The protesters chanted “Islam is Peace” and “Free our bros” outside the state capital.
The Twitter terrorist, Mahamed Said, threatened a “massacre” if they weren’t released. Another tweet said, “Best believe I’m gonna kill for those guys if they don’t free my brothers.”
Abdullahi Salim helped lead the protest. He says he’s a friend of all the arrested suspects, and can’t believe they could be involved.
“I grew up here with them,” Salim said. “I was not expecting them to be criticized as terrorists.”
Oh, okay, that’s good enough for me.
“These guys are really, really, really helpful guys,” Salim said. “Whenever you need help, they’re the first guys you call for help.”
Community organizers say they want to sit down with lawmakers and talk about programs to help Somali youth prosper and not be drawn into recruiting.
In St. Cloud in March, Somali students are protesting what they say are bullying incidents.
In 2008, Somalis protested the RNC Convention. They don’t like Republicans because they might take on terrorists.
In 2012, the Somalis in Minnesota protested Minnesota banks for refusing to transfer money back home to their terrorist relatives
The protests were aimed at getting Minnesota banks to resume business with local money transfer shops, which are used by many Somali immigrants to send dollars to al-Shabaab-dominated Somalia.
They don’t appreciate it here. They need to be sent back home before they turn the US into the hellhole they left.
These are Obama’s ‘New Americans” who will transform America fundamentally. They are guaranteed to vote Democratic.
The problem has been created by the administration.
Minnesota has been the most frequent receiving area for the Somali refugees but not the only one. Large Somali communities have been created in Columbus, Ohio, in Lewiston, Maine and San Diego, California, in Texas and other Southern states.
It’s part of the social engineering. Our leftist government places the ‘New Americans” from terror zones into our neighborhoods and then calls us nativists and racists if we complain..
