Chaim Amalek: “Minnesota WASPS, that’s who! And you can’t blame the Jews for how Lutheran churches act to subvert White society. Luke, are any Chabad or other orthodox Jewish temples importing any Somalis or Sudanese these days?”
Luke Ford: “No, Chaim. That’s repellent to all the Hasidim I know.”
Chaim Amalek: “Scott, you have to have a culture with pretensions of being “universal” to behave in such a way. And Christianity sees itself as universal. The more insular the culture/religion, the less likely they are to entertain such thoughts. I think it would be a mitzvah and an example to your community, Luke, were you to adopt a few Somali teenaged boys. Maybe you could make good Aussies out of them.”
The State Department has helped to relocate tens of thousands of refugees from the war-torn African nation of Somalia to Minnesota, where they can take advantage of some of America’s most generous welfare and charity programs.
But the effort is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.
In the fiscal year that ended in September, Minnesota welcomed 1,118 Somali refugees arriving directly from Africa, most of them without family ties to the state, according to State Department statistics. Overall, more than 30,000 Somalis live in the midwestern state comprising the nation’s largest concentration of Somali immigrants, according to U.S. Census data.
Many of the refugees settle near the Twin Cities, with Minneapolis being dubbed “Little Mogadishu” after the capital of Somalia.
This population is also being targeted by Islamist terror organizations like the Islamic State and al-Shabab, a Somalia-based group with links to al Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.
Among Minnesota-based Somali-Americans, American converts to Islam or Somali refugees, there have been numerous convictions for various levels of collaboration with Islamist terror groups, plus reports of fighting with al-Shabab or other Islamist groups.
On Sunday, al-Shabab made a propaganda video warning of an attack on shopping malls around the world, including the Mall of America in Minnesota. Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya two years ago, which left 67 dead.
