Somalia’s Islamist insurgency is threatening to attack us. Apparently, they will reconsider if Barack Obama converts to Islam. I guess they haven't heard that many Americans think that has already happened.
(Fox News) — A leader of Somalia’s Islamist insurgency threatened to attack America during a speech broadcast Monday.
“We tell the American President Barack Obama to embrace Islam before we come to his country,” said Fuad Mohamed “Shongole” Qalaf.
Al-Shabab has not yet launched an attack outside Africa but Western intelligence has long been worried because the group targeted young Somali-Americans for recruitment. About 20 have traveled to Somalia for training and at least three were used as suicide bombers inside Somalia. Al-Shabab holds most of southern and central Somalia and has the support of hundreds of foreign fighters, mostly radicalized East Africans.
