Somali Group in US: Support for Terror Widespread Among Somali Youth

A curious little section in a story on the Somali Minnesota mall stabber.

In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the "call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State."

The statement added, "I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah."

Abdiraham also said in the statement that Americans will not be safe as long as "your country is at war with Islam."

Omar Jamal, an activist with a Somali watchdog group, said he is aware of the statement.

"This is a widespread sentiment with Somali youth," he said.

"What is very concerning in this instance, is the fact that youth are exploring more 'How can I do something here, what weapons are accessible,'" he said.

How reassuring.

Maybe, just maybe, we should keep these "youth" out of our country so they can't figure out how to stab us. Because it's a lot easier to stab Americans in a mall than an American drone flying over Somalia.

Either we implement common sense immigration reform or we get stabbed to death. And only stabphobes would be opposed to that.
