Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D), is the terrorist recruitment capitol of the United States, according to FBI statistics.

FOX News reports that “more men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.”

“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined,” Fox News continued. “And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.”

As FOX notes, “the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground” for Islamic terrorism as the Somali population in the Minneapolis community — which is located in Omar’s district — is nearly 100,000.

“We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,” one federal official told Fox News. “Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another issue.”

Robin Simcox, a terrorism and national security expert at The Heritage Foundation, told FOX News that “Islamist terror groups have been able to recruit from Minnesota” because Minnesota has a large Muslim population compared to other parts of the U.S.”

“However, it is also because there have been small segments of the Somali community there that have struggled to integrate into the U.S. Al-Shabaab and ISIS have exploited this – upon religious, political cultural and identity issues to offer a compelling alternative to Western democracy,” Simcox added.

In 2013, Omar blamed America’s “involvement in other people’s affairs” for an al-Shabab terrorist attack on a Kenyan shopping mall that year which resulted in nearly 70 deaths and 200 wounded. During that interview, Omar laughed and joked as she talked about Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.

WATCH:

Omar, who is a known anti-Semite, has faced recent scrutiny over her past advocacy for a group of men who were accused of trying to join ISIS. In a letter to the judge presiding over the case, Omar wrote:

Honorable Judge Davis,

As you undoubtedly deliberate with great caution the sentencing of nine recently convicted Somali-American men, I bring to your attention the ramifications of sentencing young men who made a consequential mistake to decades in federal prison. Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. Society will have no expectations of the to be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion. Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment: “Americans do not accept you and continue to trivialize your value. Instead of being a nobody, be a martyr.”

The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation. A long-term prison sentence for one who chose violence to combat direct marginalization is a statement that our justice system misunderstands the guilty. A restorative approach to justice assesses the lure of criminality and addresses it.

The desire to commit violence is not inherent to people — it is the consequences of systematic alienation; people seek violent solutions when the process established for enacting change is inaccessible to them. Fueled by disaffection turned to malice, if the guilty were willing to kill and be killed fighting perceived injustice, imagine the consequence of them hearing, “I believe you can be rehabilitated. I want you to become part of my community, and together we will thrive.” We use this form of distributive justice for patients with chemical dependencies; treatment and societal reintegration. The most effective penance is making these men ambassadors of reform.

The restorative approach provides a long-term solution – though the self-declared Islamic State may soon suffer defeat, their radical approach to change-making will continue as it has throughout history – by criminalizing the undergirding construct rather than its predisposed victims. Therein, this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism.

Thank you for your careful attention,

Ilhan Omar
State Representative-Elect – MN 60B

Omar has recently come under fire for promoting anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, which has resulted in President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence calling on her to either resign or step down from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    The Somalis’ have chosen not to assimilate. They also elected a terrorist who is guilty of immigration fraud to Congress. Americans have the right to be safe. Warehousing these thugs for the entirety of their violent youth is the only correct sentence.

      Maybe someone will use her same words when they are caught terrorizing this Dirty Muslim Bitch.
      Obama was a big supporter of The Minnesota Communist Party. All these radical Muslims are products of George Soros World Globilization Effort. Send the Camel Toothed
      Sand Muslim back to Somalia. She’s not American, and shouldn’t be portraying herself as one.
      She needs to be on the FBI Domestic Terrorist List!

      She’s another product of Madman George Soro’s effort to make World Globilization! More like Hitler Dictator Globilization!

    As it is turning out, we have a “DO NOTHING” Congress that is allowing the destruction of American values.
    So, come on ISIS, come on Communist, move on in. The Democrats are in care and do not care and do nothing about it.

    CIA & FBI will do nothing to these terrorists.
    In case you haven’t been paying attention, our top law enforcement agencies are part of the Democratic
    Tolitarian Control America Group.
    Democrats have so much control & power that they are running over the American Peopke. George Soro’s money has bought America!
    Wait until Democrats get more power, we will have to be kissing these terrorist’s asses or get thrown in jail.
    We will have nothing left after they take our money & guns!
    Kiss our asses goodbye!! Democrat Hitler Groups are taking over!

    Omar is the End Product of Obama’s Muslim Resettlement Program which targets certain areas of the country as politically favorable spots for redistribution of votes. You can see the same thing occurring in Dearborn, Michigan. Which is the home of Omar’s sister, Rashida Tlaib. Who is even more dangerous than Omar because of her numerous Direct Contacts with Islamic Terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR, to mention but a few. The big problem here is that the Somali’s,like their Muslim Brothers in Dearbornistan, have no desire to be assimilated in our nations culture. Their goal is to overthrow our government and place us all under Sharia Law, as spelled out in their 5 Step Takeover Agenda. She should be brought up on Treason charges and removed from office ASAP!
