San Diego: Somali woman sentenced to 8 years for helping terror group

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 14, 2012

And, that is not all!  She is laughingly predicting another (and more deadly) 9/11 to happen to the country that took her in as a poor and suffering refugee.

I saw several accounts of this short story (even one in the Washington Post), but no publication except the LA Times (blog!) kept that little nugget of news in its story.

Here it is:

A 25-year-old Somali woman living in San Diego was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to sending money to a suspected terrorist group in her native country.

Nima Yusuf admitted in San Diego federal court that she sent $1,450 to men in Somalia who were fighting on behalf of al-Shabaab, considered a terrorist group by the U.S. government. She also admitted trying to recruit a local man to go to Somalia to fight for al-Shabaab.

According to FBI wiretaps, Yusuf was pleased when told in a phone call by another Somali that al-
Shabaab had killed Burundian peacekeeping troops. She allegedly responded: “Oh my God! God is great! Wonderful! I swear to God, you told me something to be happy about.”

In another conversation, Yusuf laughingly said she hoped another terrorist strike like the Sept. 11 attack occurs in America: “Oh! It will be happening again. Trust me, more this time it will be double, triple their deaths.”

I guess a good education, a job, free health care, food stamps, two kids and a house weren’t what she was looking for from “welcoming” America.

    Anyone except our politicians knows that Muslim emigration is not in search of freedom or better life but is the form of jihad aimed to destabilize and change free and open societies of the Western World into Islamic hell ruled by sharia . Otherwise it would have been really stupid to bite the hand that feed .
