On October 17th, 2012 the Somali Al Qaeda cell called Al Shabaab released an hour long recruitment video urging jihadists to follow the example of the Fort Hood massacre and the Boston Marathon bombers and use ‘whatever you can get your hands on’. Here’s a clip from that video that discusses the ‘obligation of all Muslims to wage jihad on the West.’ (h/t The Blaze)
Why should Minnesota care?
Because Al Shabaab has been successfully recruiting in the Minneapolis Somali community.
On New Year’s Day, Al Shabaab launched terror attacks in Somali.
That same morning, a building exploded in the Minneapolis Somali neighborhood of Cedar-Riverside.
