Evidence Shows Minnesota Somali Explosion that Killed 2 Linked to Al Qaeda

cedarseneca2-05

The United States is being overrun by communities from terrorist countries. Despite all the news reports about 5-year-olds ending up on No Fly Lists, Muslims with actual links to terrorism routinely travel back and forth.

Very little has changed since before 9/11. We’ve built up a large bureaucracy, but it’s still too bulky and unwieldy to use.

On New Year’s Day 2014 a powerful explosion and fire occurred at 514 Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis, in a predominantly Somali neighborhood of the city.

The building was gutted by the blaze. Two bodies were found in the rubble, and fourteen people were hospitalized, one of whom died later. Within 72 hours, the building had been pulled down into a heap of rubble by a backhoe.

Two days after the blast, before any real investigation occurred — which could never be conducted, anyway, with the potential crime scene destroyed — Greg Boosalis, the supervisory special agent with the FBI in Minneapolis, told the press that there was “no evidence of terrorist activity”.

For those who have been following the story of the Cedar-Riverside explosion, the name “Garad Nor” may ring a bell.

[Garad K. Nor] According to the MN Secretary of State website, Garad Nor is recorded as a “Registered Agent” of Wadani Properties, the company that owned and managed the apartments of the Cedar-Riverside building located at 510 and 512 Cedar Ave South that exploded and burned on January 1. In some reports, Garad Nor himself as listed as the owner.

According to the website of the Minnesota Secretary of State, Garad Nor is also the Chief Executive Officer of Dar Al Tawakul General LLC. Dar Al Tawakul General LLC is one of the companies listed in the indictment against the two Rochester citizens found guilty of money laundering for al-Shabaab.

Why did the European Commission list Garad K. Nor et al. as being associated with Islamic terrorists? As it happens, the EC was acting on a list drawn up by the United States Treasury the previous year, not long after 9/11.

Since being listed as a terrorism-associate by the U.S. Treasury and the European Commission, Garad K. Nor has managed to clear his name.

A press release issued in 2012 says the President and CEO of Tawakal Money Express successfully completed a four-day training workshop (teleconferenced from Somalia) for its staff and agents regarding procedures for complying with anti-money laundering regulations in the USA.

Problem solved then, pay no attention to the explosions. The training workshop was completed. All is well. Pay no attention to the Little Mogadishus growing across the country.

This investigative report comes from Gates of Vienna which is doing the job that the FBI won’t do.

    This isn’t the first time a democrat run FBI has promptly destroyed an embarrassing crime scene. Remember Waco?

      The ATF also played a role in that ugly mess with their cowboy-like antics, which did much to set off that powder keg.

    I’m waiting for the chemical test IF they were done. That will show if the fire was Gun Powder or Amonium Nitrate.
    All I can say is it wasn’t Natural Gas as that type of explosion would have completely obliterated the building. Have you ever seen a house or apt after a natural gas explosion. The building no longer exists as the expanding gas pushes the walls out and roof off.
    Gun Powder/Black Powder/Fireworks will burn like the fire in Minnesota. Real bright and thick flames with white/gray smoke. Wood will start burning too.
    If it was just a wood fire sparked by some electric short circuit it can definitely burn like black powder but only after a looooong time, a half hour maybe.
    Black Powder could set a fully involved fire almost immediately. Less than 5 minutes. And from the reports that I’ve read that’s what happened. There was an initial explosion and then IMMEDIATELY a fully involved fire. Again gas doesn’t do that. All the energy of a gas explosion goes into expansion and then it immediately dies as all the gas has been dispersed.

      It wasn’t Natural Gas because the building isn’t serviced with Natural Gas.

    I have been following this story on vlad tepes blog.

    The government demolished the crime scene within 2 days of the fire. They did not want to find the cause.

      “Here is an interesting VIDEO of the building in Minneapolis that blew up. What is interesting is this video was uploaded 5 days after the building exploded and was filmed a year before. Wadani Properties is the company that owns the building. The license for the halal grocer was applied for by the mosque next door, an Ikhwan, (Muslim Brotherhood) mosque which they broadcast on their website along with videos of Qaradawi.”

    The FBI’s new mission statement is not to enforce, but cover up crime…if the perpetrators are black, muslim, gay, or leftist. i think it’s long past the time some courageous FBI agent steps forward and warns the country of what Holder is using the FBI for.

    Why the connection to AQ? Must their name always be associated with all suspicious Muslim activities just like clockwork? Are we more than just a little paranoid?

    Indeed, all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent. Otherwise, they are blasphemous apostates and blasphemy and apostasy are capital offenses in Islam. As a matter of fact, all non-violent jihadists are also potential violent jihadists as well, and today in the USA we have millions of non-violent but potential violent jihadists living within our midst because our federal government, US congress, and politicians from both major political parties are all married to the cult of PC multiculturalism.

    Islam is not a so-called “religion of peace.” Sorry, but GWB lied when he falsely characterized Islam as being a so-called “religion of peace.” Instead, Islam is a very rabid totalitarian cult that aims to subjugate the world in stark contrast. Indeed, look at the Islamic world in totality; it is an unmitigated disaster of backwardness and barbarianism.

    Also, the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims are not peaceful and moderate people, as waging jihad in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme is not only a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another, it is also the sole path to salvation for all Muslims as well. Hence, again all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another. Otherwise, they are executed. Islam is totalitarian to the hilt!

    The only way we can protect ourselves from jihad is by banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP. As zero Muslims in America will make both violent and non-violent jihad impossible.

      Wafa Sultan strongly chastised GWB for claiming that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’ after 911. Muslim apostates are persona non grata in our multiculti society. So-called “liberals” join in the slander party against those with the courage to tell the truth.
