The very week that the Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR issued a report deriding opponents of jihad, and most particularly Representative Peter King's hearings on jihad recruitment of Muslims to Somalia for terror training, came the horrific news that American Muslims were part of the Muslim militia that slaughtered non-Muslims (mostly women and children) in an attack on an upscale mall frequented by Westerners in Nairobi. CAIR and their affiliated orgs are the jihad enemy within working to disarm us.
Nihad Awad, founder and Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who has said "I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO," fiercely attacks and smears those who are working to keep us safe from these devout savages. In CAIR's "Legislating Fear" report, they devote an entire section to Representative Peter King's "anti-Muslim" hearings.
In the smear report, Nihad Awad said that Rep. Peter King "uses his office to foster anti-Muslim sentiment" (page v). In their ISLAMOPHOBIA AND ITS IMPACT IN THE UNITED STATES |LEGISLATING FEAR report, they go after Congressman King for holding "Hearing 3: Al Shabaab Recruitment and Radicalization Within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland," implying it was a non-existent myth created by King to drum up .... "anti-Muslim sentiment."
Al-Shabab recruited Somali rebels based in US for Nairobi mall massacre Kenya News.Net Monday 23rd September, 2013
Republican Peter King said 15 to 20 of the Somali Americans recruited by al-Shabab group remained active, Huffington Post reports.
The White House is under pressure to take counter-terrorism action against al Shabab in Somalia following the attack, the report added.
U.S. lawmakers said the attack showed al Qaeda is growing in size and strength, belying the Obama administration's claims that it has grown weaker after the killing of their leader Osama bin Laden.
King also said that he assumes the FBI and local law enforcement were looking at these Somali American communities to make sure no follow-up attacks were planned on the United States.
He likened the incident to the 2011 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, the report added. (ANI)
UPDATE: “I tried to warn America,” Abdirizak Bihi, a Minnesota-based Somali community leader:
The Council on American Islamic Relations repeatedly tried to stop a Minnesota community leader from warning about the dangers al-Qaida-linked group posed to the Somali-American community prior to the Kenyan mall massacre.
Bihi has been working to stop radicalization of Somali-Americans for years. He has testified before Congress about the dangers of radicalization in the U.S. Somali community, working alongside the FBI and the Justice Department. His involvement is personal. Bihi’s nephew was radicalized by al-Shabaab and joined the group in 2008. He was killed the following year.
