Terror Group That Carried Out Deadly Attack On A Shopping Mall In Kenya — Calls For Similar Attack On Mall Of America, As Well As Malls In Canada And The U.K.
Numerous news outlets this morning are reporting that the terrorist group that carried out the terrorist attack on a mall in Nairobi, Kenya in 2013 that killed 60 people, is calling for a similar type attack on The Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as well as the West Edmonton Mall in Canada, and London’s Oxford Street. The Somalia-based, al-Qaeda-linked group — al Shabaab, released a propaganda video Saturday, specifically urging their members and supporters to launch such attacks against any, or all three of the major consumer shopping malls.
The al-Qaeda-linked group has placed a target directly on America’s heartland, in what would be a very symbolic attack; which is no doubt meant as a strong message from the militant Islamic group that — “we’re coming for you America.” Ironic that this clarion call from militant Islamists comes on the heels of a report released by the Department of Homeland Security naming right-wing, anti-government militias as a looming threat in the homeland.
The Obama administration, which has called for ‘strategic patience,’ and made the claim that global climate change is at least as big a threat, if not more so — than ‘violent extremism,’ — seems woefully out of touch; and, appears to lack the understanding that the Islamic State is metastasizing throughout the Middle East and North Africa — and represents a clear and present danger to the American homeland.
