Six Minnesota Muslims Arrested for Trying to Join ISIS

Minnesota has a major terrorist problem. Muslim terrorists have been emanating from the Twin Cities for some time and this week the feds announced the arrests of six more Minnesota Muslims for trying to join ISIS.

This isn’t the first time that Muslims who were settled in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area have gone back to Africa or the Middle East–or have tried to go there–to fight for one terrorist outfit or another. But it is the latest[1].

Six Minnesota men have been charged with terrorism in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday that accuses them of attempting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State.

The six are accused of conspiracy to provide material support and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. The complaint said the men planned to reach Syria by flying from San Diego or New York City to nearby countries, and lied to federal investigators when they were stopped.

Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, 21; Adnan Abdihamid Farah, 19; Abdurahman Yasin Daud, 21; Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, 19; Hanad Mustafe Musse, 19; and Guled Ali Omar, 20, were arrested Sunday in Minneapolis and San Diego and are scheduled to appear in federal court Monday.

“They have spent a great deal of time over the past year trying to get to Syria to fight for ISIL,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said at a press conference.

And who is to blame for all this? The US government is the one that imported all these Muslims to the Minneapolis area, most as refugees from Somalia.
