Minneapolis: More Somali refugees leaving to join jihad (in Syria this time)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 5, 2014

It began back in 2008 and we followed the story for years—Somali youths traded the good life in America (generously supplied by your tax dollars) to go join Al-Shabaab in Somalia.   Some died, some came back and were prosecuted, others are still unaccounted for.    Now comes news that more Somali youths, motivated by ideology, are believed to be joining the “rebels” in Syria this time.

From MyFox9  (Hat tip: Deb):

Minneapolis Somali activist, Abdi Bihi: If our people had more jobs and more programs, and didn’t feel like outsiders, this wouldn’t happen! Photo:


The FBI says more Somali travelers have left Minnesota, possibly to fight against the regime of President Bashar Assad in Syria. Investigators believe those who left Minnesota were motivated by radical ideology, not nationalism.


The FBI has not specified how many people are believed to involved, but a leader in the Minnesota Somali community told Fox 9 News a dozen men have left. The FBI confirmed they have “indications” that some recently traveled overseas. Now, they are reaching out to the large Somali population in Minnesota to learn more.

One young man — a 20-year-old Somali college student — left the Twin Cities as recently as last Thursday. He sent a text message to his family from Istanbul, Turkey, to say he was heading to Syria to fight in the holy war.



The request for tips comes about a week after an American from Florida died in a suicide bombing attack on Syrian government troops in the city of Iblib.

Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, 22, is believed to be the first U.S. citizen involved in a suicide bombing in the civil war’s three-year history. His family thought he was in Jordan when he died.

It is America’s fault!

Oh, those poor “vulnerable” babies in Minneapolis!


Since 2007, at least 22 young men have left Minnesota to join al-Shabaab in Somalia. Some have died there, and some were even praised as “Minnesota Martyrs” in an elaborate video released last year.


Some of the so-called travelers were prosecuted for their role in what the FBI has described as one of the largest efforts to recruit U.S. fighters to a foreign terrorist organization, and community activist Abdi Bihi says his community is particularly vulnerable to such efforts due to a lack of jobs, programs and feeling like outsiders.

Yeh, spend more money on “programs” that will solve the problem!   These ungrateful punks would not be in a position (alive and healthy) to become “fighters” if it weren’t for all the money Americans spent on their upbringing. 

Now the next question is, will they be back?

Be sure to read one of our most-read posts over the years—Why so many Somalis in Minnesota—and thank the US State Department, Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and World Relief Minnesota for their good works in bringing this mess to Minnesota!

UN: There will be no refugee camps in Libya/N. Africa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 4, 2014

So, the countries of Italy, Greece and Malta will continue to get the brunt of the illegal migration as the ‘invasion of Europe’ continues.

The architects of a disastrous US foreign policy in N.Africa

The UN squawks about the deaths of migrants trying to get to Europe across the Mediterranean, but is scared of setting up camps in Libya to hold them (or could the UN actually be supporting the invasion of Europe by mostly Muslim illegal aliens?).

They don’t say they are scared, we do!

Libya is a lawless hellhole largely thanks to the Obama gals—Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Power!

From the Times of Malta:

The United Nations is not considering setting up holding camps in North Africa and the Middle East to prevent migrants from making the dangerous sea crossing to Europe.

Contrary to what was reported in The Guardian, an influential UK newspaper, the UN refugee agency insisted it would only explore external processing “under the right circumstances and with adequate safeguards”.

A spokesman for UNHCR in Malta told Times of Malta the agency “was not considering holding camps” as an alternative to address the challenges of refugees and migrants risking their lives at sea.

“Rather, UNHCR is working on a comprehensive set of proposals, focused on saving lives and helping refugees find alternatives to dangerous journeys,” the spokesman said.

The Guardian yesterday reported that the UN was forced to consider the opening of holding camps where asylum applications could be handled in a bid to prevent thousands of migrants crossing the Mediterranean.


Countries like Libya, which is not a signatory to the Geneva Convention on refugees, are not considered safe for migrants by human rights groups.[LOL! and the human rights groups don't want to go there either!---ed]

The boats will continue to be launched and more migrants will drown, so much for the “responsibility to protect.”

NY: Yemeni arrested on terrorism charges, wanted to kill US soldiers in Rochester

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 3, 2014

Some more of that “vibrant diversity” coming to a city near you!  

He supposedly wanted to kill some Shiite Muslims in Rochester too! (Diversity is not beautiful to Sunnis.)

Who knows how this apparently legal immigrant got into the US, but the feds should check if his convenience store was ripping off US taxpayers while they are at it!

From AP at the Wall Street Journal:

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A New York business owner from Yemen plotted vengeance attacks against members of the U.S. military for American actions overseas and Shiite Muslims over the civil war in Syria, according to federal authorities.

Federal authorities said in court papers that Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, bought two handguns and two silencers as part of a plan to kill members of the U.S. armed forces returning from war, as well as Shiites in the Rochester area.

Elfgeeh was arrested Saturday and faces two counts of receiving and possessing an unregistered firearm silencer.

Check it out, he ran a convenience store too!

Elfgeeh, a naturalized U.S. citizen who operates Halal Mojo and Food Mart in Rochester, paid the informant $1,050 in the transaction completed Saturday afternoon and was immediately arrested for possession of the silencers not registered in his name.

We haven’t reported much on immigrant food stamp fraud lately, but click here for our archives where we have posted dozens and dozens of cases over the years.

Don’t eat the chocolate!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 2, 2014

This has nothing to do with refugees (it will someday as the Muslim population in the US increases), but I saw this story about Cadbury Chocolates (owned by Mondelez International) under the gun in certain parts of the world to prove that they were not adding Pig DNA to their chocolate bars and it so ticked me off that I wanted you to see it.

Read it yourself and get ready for the chocolate riots in Malaysia and Indonesia!

Here is a suggestion: shut up and don’t eat the chocolate.

Unfortunately, however, we increasingly see the food industry and western governments prostrating themselves in the face of Islamic tyranny and Shariah law.

Kentucky again: Muslim “refugee” rips off his resettlement agency, but that is not the whole story!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 1, 2014

Is Kentucky turning out to be the go-to place for questionable Muslim characters from the Middle East?

Is “refugee resettlement” more than we ever knew?

Yesterday we told you all about Kentucky, not all about it, readers in Kentucky have a lot more sleuthing to do about how refugee resettlement works there and who is being resettled in their state by mostly “church” contractors (with the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society thrown in for a little diversity).   I’m thinking Kentucky is ripe for the development of a  “pocket of resistance!”

Now, along comes this news that on the surface is funny—naive Christian refugee contractor (Kentucky Refugee Ministries) ripped off by Muslim refugee (infidels are fair game!).   Thanks to Robin for spotting the news and thanks to her for taking a few minutes to look at the alleged embezzlers’ facebook page.

Photo of Mustafa Abbas, Louisville, KY resident, from facebook page (see mug shot below). Gotta be the same guy or identical twin!

Here is the story at

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A refugee living in Louisville is accused of stealing from an organization that was trying to help him.

According to the arrest warrant, Mustafa Abbas Shighain used a bank account number and routing number for Kentucky Refugee Ministries to pay his personal bills without consent. Kentucky Refugee Ministries relocates refugees from other countries into the Louisville area. The refugees are issued a check each month for $300 for living expenses.  [That is from you, the taxpayer---ed]

Police say Shighain was a refugee when he began using the business routing number and bank account number to pay his own bills, including Time Warner and LG&E. He’s also accused of opening a Pay Pal account using the same routing number and account number, then trying to have money transferred from Kentucky Refugees Ministries’ account into the Pay Pal account, but the transaction was denied.

Police say Shighain also applied for and received a Speedway gas card in his own name using the Kentucky Refugees Ministries’ information.

Mustafa photo from Louisville Metro Corrections, same guy right!

According to arrest documents, an employee became suspicious of Shighain after the business received a letter from Pay Pal denying the transaction that Shighain had tried to make. An audit was conducted and the unauthorized transfers were uncovered.

Police say Shighain stole a total of $2,200 from the business.   [That is $2,200 extra dollars he got from US taxpayers---ed]

Shighain was arrested on May 29 and charged with theft by deception and unlawful access to a computer.

We want to know more about this guy! 

And, I make a prediction that this case disappears!  

Here are some of the questions generated by a look at Mustafa Abbas’ facebook page.   As usual news reports on the crime do not mention his country of origin, but be sure to see his timeline—’places’ he has recently visited:

Syria (about 6 months ago)

Mecca, Saudi Arabia (about 6 months ago)

Istanbul, Turkey (about 6 months ago)

Louisville, KY (about 3 months ago)

It gets better!  In 2004 he was living in Syria, he lived in Saudi Arabia (SA supports the Syrian rebels) in 2009 and then in Turkey in 2011.  He doesn’t say he is Syrian (maybe it is mentioned somewhere on fb) so I’m wondering if he is a Palestinian (only his resettlement agency knows for sure!), or a Kurd.    He says he speaks English, Arabic and Turkish and can pilot a plane.

He doesn’t sound like a poor, persecuted “refugee” to me!

And, are you ready for the best part of all!

From 2009 until 2011 he worked for Human Rights Watch, and says he is now a student for something he calls the FBI INTERNATIONAL POLICE.   There is an FBI Academy, here, is that what he is talking about?  He began “working” there on May 1st.

Go to Mustafa Abbas’ facebook page before it disappears.  Curious Kentuckians need to ask what the hell is going on here?  Do these “church” contractors know who they are sheltering in Louisville?  What did Human Rights Watch know about him or need him for? Or, are we naive, and “refugee resettlement” and the do-gooder movement is about a whole lot more than we ever knew?

Come on Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, where are you?  One year ago you questioned this program after the Iraqi refugee terrorists were caught, you need to step up now and ask more questions!  It isn’t just the Iraqis we need to worry about!

Editors note:  Although Mustafa Abbas at facebook does not use the last name ‘Shighain,’ we feel sure the facebook Mustafa Abbas (living in Louisville) is the same guy as the alleged embezzler Mustafa Abbas (living in Louisville), but even in the tiny chance that they aren’t one and the same, someone needs to be investigating the facebook Mustafa anyway!

Minneapolis: Somalis want to expand mall, neighbors opposed

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2014

I expect to see David Lubell and his “Welcoming America” gang stepping in here to support the Somali “entrepreneurs” who say business is booming in South Minneapolis and to get the minds right of these clearly “unwelcoming” neighbors.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges donned a hijab to visit business leaders in South Minneapolis!


However, here is what I don’t get, how does this notion that business is booming fit with the statistics we reported yesterday from Minnesota that 63% of Somalis in that state live below the poverty level.  Where are they getting the money then to shop and hang around to watch soccer and drink tea?

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Local Somalis had high hopes for the expansion of a Somali mall in south Minneapolis, after the owner proposed adding nearly 9,000 square feet of space and expanding the parking lot.

But one by one, the mall’s neighbors showed up to testify at a Planning Commission meeting late Monday that the mall had already caused many traffic and parking problems in the area.

City planning commissioners voted down the expansion Monday night, calling on the developer to further study how it would affect traffic. City planners had supported the project.

The crowded mall is the latest example of a problem throughout the city: balancing the needs of neighborhood businesses with complaints that their customers overwhelm the streets.  [Do you have "customers" overwhelming the streets where you live?---ed]

Are they just hanging around with not much to do (on the taxpayers’ dime)?

Cars park where there are no designated spaces, often boxing each other in and sometimes even blocking the mall’s entrances as East African immigrants stream in to drink tea, watch soccer, log on to computers, have their hair cut, and buy dresses, scarves and rugs.

Here is what the neighbors say:

Many Somali immigrants stepped up to support the project before planning commissioners on Monday, but opponents said that Village Market, as the mall is known, was never designed to support so many visitors and businesses. It has invited noise, illegal parking, littering, crime, dangerous driving maneuvers and loud music. Some said they had seen ambulances struggle to weave through.

Hey, lucky Cheyenne, Wyoming!  This could be you someday!

Thank Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and World Relief Minnesota for helping make this lovely situation possible in Minneapolis!

Half a million migrants said to be massing in Libya; plan to get to Europe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2014

Invasion of Europe series continues….

Cecilia Malmstrom, EU Home Affairs chief is a Swede (of course!).

The headline to this story at The New Zealand Herald is “Europe shuns Syria refugees,” but I believe mine is better!  Don’t they call this burying the lead?

“Pathetically few” nations in Europe have stepped forward to offer a safe haven to desperate Syrian refugees, the European Union’s Home Affairs chief says, raising the risk that many more could die at sea as they instead embark on perilous journeys to seek sanctuary.

Cecilia Malmstrom’s warning came as the EU’s border agency, Frontex, reported a leap in the number of people detected entering Europe illegally this year, with Syrians making up the largest proportion.

Up to half a million people are also believed to be massing in Libya and preparing to cross the Mediterranean, a route which claimed more than 700 lives last year.

Yet despite promises of action from EU leaders, who last October were united in their shock after at least 350 migrants died off the Italian coast, there are few signs that this summer will be different.

Instead, agencies trying to save lives are having to contend with shrinking budgets, a political vacuum in Libya and xenophobic rhetoric from far-right parties which has seeped into government refugee policy.  [LOL! I wonder if these leftist reporters have a goal to work one of these words---'xenophobic,' 'racist' or 'bigoted'---into every refugee story! Who wrote this biased sentence?  Charlotte McDonald-Gibson ---ed]

It is always about xenophobia, and never because sensible conservative citizens of European countries know that they simply can’t afford the economic and social problems that come with open borders and a rapidly changing demography!

California bank cuts off money transfers to Somalia, other African countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2014

Editors note:  I’ve been away so hopefully will be able to catch up with the news in a bunch of short posts this morning.

“Somali pirate” greeted by Rep. Keith Ellison in forum to protect money transfer system to Africa.

The banks (and the feds) fear, of course, that the money being sent from Mom & Pop money transfer companies will end up in the hands of terrorists.

You have to sign up to get the full story at Foreign Policy, but here is how the story begins thanks to blogger Michele Kearney:

Rules designed to keep money out of the hands of terrorists could soon cut off support to millions of ordinary East Africans too. Last week, another financial institution — Merchants Bank of California — started closing accounts belonging to companies that collect money from African immigrants in the United States and send it to Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and other African countries.

The money-transmitter companies function like smaller versions of Western Union and MoneyGram, but they can send money to far-flung African villages that the big guys don’t serve. They rely on banks to make the international wire transfers necessary to get the money there. It’s part of a worldwide system of informal financial transactions between residents of impoverished countries and the friends and relatives living abroad who regularly send them money. The World Bank estimates that immigrants will send home $436 billion this year.

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison is one of the chief advocates for keeping the money flowing to Somalia.   And, the more refugees we resettle, the more money that flows out in remittances to the third world.

Springfield, Mass: Somali girls to stand trial for school fight

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 15, 2014

They, and the Islamic Society of Western Massachusetts (media campaign?), argue that they were responding to 12 years of bullying and that charges should be dropped.   I guess that will be the job of the trial court—to find guilt or not.

The girls with their lawyers

Are you listening Wyoming?

Springfield, in the “peoples’ republic of Massachusetts,” has been trying to get its refugee overload problem under control for some time.  See especially this post of several—Mayor wants moratorium on resettlement, says contractors are “dumping” refugees.

Here is the story re-posted from Masslive at Somaliland Informer (emphasis below is mine):

SPRINGFIELD — A trial date for two Somali immigrant sisters who say they were persistently bullied in the West Springfield school system was continued Wednesday until Aug. 12, as a lawyer for one of the sisters said prosecutors have refused to dismiss charges against them in connection with a fight in the high school cafeteria last year.

Hibo and and Najma Hussein, both seniors at West Springfield High School, were charged with unlawful disruption of an assembly. Najma Hussein also has been charged with assault and battery. A lawyer for Najma Hussein said the girls have been unfairly targeted.

“Our position is that the girls are the victims of this incident, not the instigators,” said Bruce E. Colton after a brief hearing in Springfield District Court, adding that he believes a surveillance video from the school will prove the defendants’ claims.

However, a police report states the alleged victim in the case reported that Najma Hussein punched her in the face and scratched her eye, and that the sisters have been involved in similar incidents at school multiple times. A third sister, Filsan Hussein, 18, also was charged in the case. Charges against her were dropped because she was a minor at the time the alleged fight occurred.

Now get this, look how old they are and if they had been in America since 2000, they would have been only 5 or 6 years old when they came here—plenty of time to have been assimilated through 12 years of schooling in the US.  I am not convinced that they have been harassed for all those years.

Najma and Hibo Hussein are 19 and 20, respectively. The family, including 15 siblings and their parents, immigrated to the United States in 2000 after living in a refugee camp in Kenya, where hundreds of thousands of Somalis landed after civil war broke out in their country.

The Husseins are Muslim, and said classmates have labeled them “towel heads” and “terrorists” since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Lawyers for the family members have argued the girls have been systematically abused at school because of their religious and ethnic backgrounds. Attorney Mickey E. Harris, who is representing the family, said their collective experiences have soured them on the American Dream.

“The question becomes does it get better or are they better off in a Third World country,” Harris asked.   [LOL!  Don't answer that!---ed]

The sisters’ cause has sparked public discussion and a protest organized by the Islamic Society of Western Massachusetts.

Isn’t diversity beautiful!

Maine: Tsarnaev’s gun came from Eritrean gang member in Portland

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2014

However, the Portland Chief of Police maintains that Maine is still a safe state with only a few loosely affiliated immigrant gangs!

Boston bomber Tsarnaev was a political “refugee” in America

It’s all over the news, but as usual the UK press (Daily Mail!) is covering the story in its famously direct fashion, no beating around the bush about the nationalities of the gang bangers like the defensive-sounding Maine papers.

Longtime readers of RRW know that Maine has become a magnet for African refugees—as refugees resettled directly there by the US State Department, as secondary migrants, and as asylum seekers.  See our lengthy archive on Maine, here.   See especially our 2009 post about the Somali migration to Maine for its generous welfare.

By the way, when you check out the Portland paper (the Sun Journal), note that one of the gangs they are watching is the Somali True Bloods.

Here is the UK Daily Mail (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

The 9mm pistol that Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev used to murder one police officer and gravely wound another came from a brutal street gang in Maine that is allegedly led by an Eritrean immigrant.

Tracking the path of the Ruger P95 semiautomatic pistol has led investigators to believe he may have dealt drugs to finance the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that killed three spectators and injured more than 260 others.

Drug money is also believed to have funded the 26-year-old’s 2012 trip to Chechnya and Dagestan in Russia, where he became involved in radical Islam.


They found that it was legally purchased at a Cabella’s sporting goods store outside Portland, Maine, in November 2011 by Danny Sun Jr – a Los Angeles native. The gun typically sells for about $375.

Sun told investigators that he gave the pistol to Biniam Tsegai, a 27-year-old Eritrean immigrant who goes by the street name ‘Icy.’

The Times reports that Tsegai is a reputed leader of a Portland, Maine, street gang with a lengthy arrest record – including robbery, criminal trespass and reckless driving.

In May 2013 – a month after the marathon bombings – Tsegai was arrested and indicted on federal drug trafficking charges. Prosecutors noted that the drugs he is accused of trafficking were brought from Boston to Maine.

Tsegai has refused to talk to authorities about the Ruger pistol – or anything else.

However, Tsarnaev’s possession of the weapon have strengthened their suspicions that he was involved in drug trafficking.

This last bit in the story is a terrible black mark on investigators.  That these murders linked to Tsarnaev were not solved (and still aren’t solved as far as I know) in a timely fashion is a travesty.

They have not been able to prove his involvement, but suspect he had something to do with the September 11, 2011 murder of three men in an apartment outside Boston who were found with the throats slit. Marijuana and $1,000 in cash was found sprinkled around the crime scene.

Besides Maine, where are the Eritreans?

RRW geography lesson!

They are in Washington DC in very large numbers.  The State Department and its contractors don’t normally resettle new refugees to DC (the well-off and well-connected might be troubled by that), but Eritreans are going to DC as secondary migrants having been resettled elsewhere in the US.

Here is a lengthy story, also thanks to ‘pungentpeppers,’ about how their kinfolk in Africa are being kidnapped and ransomed and the DC Eritreans are stressed about it.

According to wikipedia about 50% of the population of Eritrea is Christian and 48% Muslim.

From the Washington City Paper:

Eritreans began migrating to the U.S. in small numbers in the 1960s, when the country was still part of Ethiopia, according to Hepner. Subsequent waves in the 1980s and over the past five years brought thousands more, mainly as part of refugee resettlement programs, and the D.C. area has long been home to one of the largest communities in the country, Hepner says.

Read it all.
