The St. Paul Pioneer reports that six young Minnesota men who were “reportedly disillusioned with American life and swayed by a peer who’d already made the journey, tried repeatedly to travel to Syria and fight with the Islamic State, according to federal charges filed Monday.”

Somali Americans living right there in the twin cities! As I have previously reported, radical Islam has a firm foothold in both Minnesota and Michigan which have both seen a large increase in Muslim citizens since the 1990’s. Of course, simply being a Muslim does not equate with being a terrorist. Regardless, residents of those two states have become increasingly alarmed by incidents like those reported by USA Today on August 28, 2014, when a controversial 4-day Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference kicked off with thousands of Muslims converging on Detroit for the event. Call it ISIS, call it ISNA, call it what you like. If it walks like a duck, swims in the pond and quacks…
Drawing attacks because of ISNA’s association with radical terrorist groups, readers will recall that in 2009, a federal Texas Judge Jorge Antonio Solis had already ruled (in a case involving the Muslim charity Holy Land for Relief and Development) that “the government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of ISNA…with Hamas.” The judge’s ruling also cited a federal 1991 DoJ memo that listed ISNA as a Muslim Brotherhood organization. Sounds like, at least, a group that supports one of the most radical terrorist groups out there doesn’t it. Hamas, you know, those wacky guys who have been blowing themselves up, launching mortars and rockets at civilians and, generally, making the Middle East the anteroom to Hell because Islam does not rule the world. Those guys!
In true Taqiyya fashion, lie to the infidels about ones true intentions to sway public opinion in your favor. Recall that “Taqiyya” literally means “to lie” to the American infidel. As reported by Islam Watch, “It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralizing any criticism of Islam or Muslims.”
Part of the ISNA’s particular Taqiyya appeared to be the statement that “ISNA rejects all acts of terrorism, including those perpetrated by Hamas, Hizbullah and any other group that claims Islam as their inspiration” while tacitly, according to the federal lawsuit in Texas, of actually supporting these types of groups. And, in Minnesota, the current Taqiyya this past week? Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, “the United States has failed miserably to counter the Islamic State’s sophisticated propaganda”, “law enforcement’s approach wasn’t deterring potential recruits”, “They are still leaving, this is a war of ideas.” Still don’t get it? Jamal continues, “There are a host of issues contributing to that sense of isolation including unemployment, lack of education, communication gaps between older and younger Somalis and identity issues. A lot of our young people are really lost, so we need really need to reach out to them and engage them now, before they even think of going to join ISIS. It’s a question of how do we play a preventative role rather than a reactive one.”
