Trial of 10 Minnesota Jihadis Returns Guilty Verdicts Ignored by Media

On June 3, one of the biggest trials of Muslim immigrants turned would-be jihadists in U.S. history ended with guilty verdicts for four and guilty pleas by six others, but the trial went practically unnoticed by the old media establishment, overshadowed by the terror attack in Orlando and other news.

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. If there is one thing the trial highlighted is that Minnesota has a major terrorist problem among its Somali immigrant community. Suspected Muslim terrorists have been pouring out from the Twin Cities region for some time, and this trial of six more Minnesota Muslims who were accused of trying to join ISIS is just the latest example.

“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 in April when the charges were unsealed.

Originally ten local young Muslim men of Somali descent were hit with terror charges, but six of those charged pleaded guilty and waived a trail. Now, the remaining three, Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, 21; Abdurahman Yasin Daud, 21; and Guled Ali Omar, 20, were all found guilty after a three-week trial. A fourth Minnesota Muslim, Abdirahman Bashir, turned state’s witness and provided key evidence to convict the three.

The guilty verdicts all carry a possible life sentence.

But according to Scott W. Johnson, writing for City Journal, the atmosphere around the trial needs to be reported on, too, because it seemed from his firsthand experience that the local Muslim community did not blame the convicted jihadis for the charges. Instead, they acted as if these young men were just being persecuted by an out-of-control government intent on sending innocent Muslims to jail.
============================snip================
Indeed, last year, a video made the rounds showing Somalis in Minnesota insisting they’d rather live under strict sharia law than under American jurisprudence. And just as bad has been the weak coverage in the old media establishment of the trial and the community that spawned it.

As Johnson notes, much of the coverage has been woefully inadequate with almost none of it focusing on how the Somali community has viewed the proceedings.

With an estimated 100,000 plus Somali immigrants settled in Minnesota, brought there by the federal government, this mentality isn’t surprising. And in fact, the government has noticed at least a dozen young Somali men missing from the region over the past decade or so and has even previously arrested several others all suspected of trying to travel to Syria or Africa to join the jihad.

34. I'm afraid I don't have my English-to-Bigotese dictionary handy.

 

Let's just stick to the actual definition of words, shall we?

"Is·lam
isˈläm,izˈläm/ noun
the religion of the Muslims, a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the Prophet of Allah."

"Genocide gen·o·cide
ˈjenəˌsīd/
noun
the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.
synonyms: mass murder, mass homicide, massacre"

Why don't you try to master English before tackling Genocide?

"It's an ideology like the Nazis"
Says the person who espouses genocide of adherents to an abrahamic religion while sporting patches that actually are like SS symbols.

7. Wrong color, wrong religion.

If these filthy cockroaches yelled "Allahu Akbar" before raping a 5-year-old child, followed by them charging into a gay disco and murdering dozens of people in cold blood, the only angle our lovely media would pursue (if they even opted to cover the story in the first place) would be to speculate on how much blame should be placed on the NRA & Trump individually.

Liberals have their heads so far up their balloon knots with regards to Islam it's a minor miracle there isn't a national shortage of KY Jelly and Vaseline.

This is just the same story with a clickbait headline that includes the familiar Breitbart paranoia, "Ignored by Media" The tactic works in the world of yellow journalism. Lots of people just like you are clicking away at old news.

Once you are there, select Explore in depth.

As you can see if you hit the above link, Breitbart ran a story on it back then too. They had to be aware of the prior news coverage when they came up with this "Ignored by Media" clickbait.
