    American City Is 'Breeding Terrorists'

    The White House believes home-grown terrorism is one of the greatest threats the US faces, ten years after the 9/11 attacks.


    The biggest domestic terrorism investigation since 2001 has focused on the northern city of Minneapolis.


    It is estimated up to 40 young men from the Somali community in Minneapolis have been radicalised and recruited to join the al Qaeda affiliate al Shabaab in Somalia.


    There are also growing fears that the US faces the threat of an attack within its borders from young radicals carrying American passports.



    Seventeen-year-old Burhan Hassan was one of those young men recruited by al Shabaab.


    His death in Somalia prompted his family to break the silence they say was enabling the recruiting.


    His uncle Abdirizak Bihi now runs a campaign to highlight the risks of young men being recruited and encourage Somali families to speak out.


    He told Sky News: "Al Qaeda is always very creative. They were creative on 9/11 and they are creative in going into our community.

    "By recruiting young refugees and taking them back to Somalia and training them with that mindset and sending them back here without anyone knowing it, it's feasible they can attack Alaska, Washington, New York and London anywhere they want."


    His warning was repeated by Omar Jamal, a senior official at the Somali mission to the United Nations.


    He told Sky News: "If a young man with an American passport is able to go to Somalia and blow himself up, we haven't seen anything that would prevent that person coming back and blowing himself up here."

    Congressional hearings into Muslim radicalisation and a new White House strategy have done little to calm fears.


    Minneapolis shopkeeper Mohamed Amin Ahmed is trying to play al Shabaab at its own game with leaflets and propaganda videos urging moderation.


    He says the Somali community has to take responsibility.


    "What government can't do, is horrible at doing, is winning hearts and minds," he said.


    "If individuals have perfected this message and YouTube-ed it, we have to imitate them.


    "If someone can come here and logically stake out a plan for extremism then we too need to set up logically and methodically a plan for moderation."


    Minneapolis police officer Jeanine Brudenell runs the force's liaison programme with the city's East African community and says it is having a positive effect.


    She said: "Some people in the community may recognise the sign much earlier than we're going to as law enforcement.


    "So the hope is that people feel enough trust to come and say something rather than being afraid and not telling anybody."

    It might be easier if us infidels organised a mass suicide to save the Muslims too much bother and hard work with their drive to rid the planet of the white man !

    It was Christian (mostly Protestant garbage) aid groups who were behind relocating Somali's into the US, and people wonder why I've always had a hatred of Christianity.
