Somali-American leader says he tried to warn America about homegrown radicalization

Topics: Al-Shabaab, Political News and commentaries

Abdirizak Bihi tried to tell us, but no one listened, especially those in the CAIR-associated Obama administration and CAIR-associated members of Congress with closed ears to warnings of Islamic terrorists-in-the-making within our midst.

The Daily Caller reports:

[B]ihi "called out Imams and Islamic centers which glorified the al-Shabaab and the jihad in Somalia. In exchange for that tough love to Minnesota Muslims, groups like CAIR labeled him and his colleague in Minnesota Omar Jamal as 'anti-Muslim.'"

Bihi's own congressman (and CAIR fundraiser) Keith Ellison "did nothing to expose the radicalization of Muslims," Jasser said. At Bihi's House testimony in 2011, Jasser said, Ellison "smeared [Bihi"] and said he "was 'only invited to testify because [Bihi's] willing to diss the Somali and Muslim community in Minneapolis.'"

Analysts like David Reaboi, Vice President of the Center for Security Policy, doubt that CAIR is "necessarily" pro-al-Shabaab. "Their mission is to destroy any allegation of 'radicalization' in Islam," says Reaboi. "They want everyone to be in fear of talking about it."

NBC News reports that al Shabaab has a larger U.S. contingent than any other al-Qaeda offshoot. This fact makes almost laughable James Fergusson's op-ed in the NYT today in which he downplays the potential for radicalization of American Somali Muslims and posits that "the vast majority of young diaspora Muslims are likely to reject extremism on their own". He may be right about the "majority" ... but all it takes is one ... or 20 ... or ... and if only 1 returns, that's enough to cause the death of many!
