Just another day at the library in Somali-country Minnesota

Two stabbed outside library by Koran-carrying woman!
From CBS News (hat tip Cliff):
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) — Two people were stabbed in a seemingly random attack at a Twin Cities library.
After the incident Wednesday night at the Oxboro Library in Bloomington, 35-year-old Samira Abdalla Salim was arrested.
Salim was no stranger to the Oxboro Library. She had a reputation for handing out the Koran and talking religion outside the building.
“They had some issues with her harassing other patrons,” said Bloomington Police Commander Mark Stehlik.
But it’s what investigators say she did on Wednesday night that surprised everyone.
“I never thought she would do that. She was very nice,” said Anisa Ahmed, Salim’s neighbor.
Salim is accused of stabbing two people. The first victim was a woman who was walking into the library.
“The next thing she knew, she felt a sharp pain in the middle of her back and realized she had been stabbed,” said Stehlik.
The second was a security guard who heard the victim’s cry for help. He went to talk to Salim in the parking lot.
This story reminds me that former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty served as governor while thousands of Somalis were resettled in his state, in fact during some of the highest years for Somali resettlement. NumberUSA gives him a great score on the issue of immigration but I am wondering if anyone has any information about whether he or his administration ever questioned the huge numbers of Somalis being placed in Minnesota by federal contractors.
Please e-mail me at Ann@vigilantfreedom.com if you know anything about Pawlenty’s role in the resettlement process in Minnesota.
If you haven’t seen my first post this morning it’s about a Somali “kid” who left the good life (the American Dream!) in Minnesota to return to Africa for Jihad training, here. He allegedly blew himself (and others) up there this week.
