Radical Islamist Group Al Shabaab Calls for Terror Attack at Mall in the United States, Naming the Mall of America in MN (Also Malls in Canada & UK) in New Video
Radical Islamic terror group Al-Shabaab has released a video calling for attacks on the Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Al Shabaab video also called for terror attacks at shopping malls in Canada, and the UK, specifically naming the West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London. Al Shabaab is a Somali terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda. These are the same Islamo-Nazis that were responsible for the 2013 Westgate Mall terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
Imagine that, the radical Islamists want to attack malls … maybe Barack Obama and State Dept. spokesperson Marie Harf can get the jihadists jobs at the Mall of the Americas so that they will turn away from radical Islam. [Sarcasm intended].
A new video from Al Shabaab purportedly shows the terror group calling for an attack on Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.
According to Fox 9, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
“We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” Mall of America said in a statement. “As always, we take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately. Mall of America has implemented extra security precautions, some may be noticeable to guests, and others won’t be. We will continue to follow the situation, along with law enforcement, and will remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations.”
CNN, ‘State of the Union’ - Homeland Security Sec. Johnson discusses Al Shabab terror threats
In its new video, it calls for similar attacks on malls in the three Western countries. Al-Shabaab identified specific malls, but CNN will not list them unless they respond publicly.
Mall of America said it’s aware of the video listing it as a potential target.
“We take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately,” the Minnesota mall said in a statement. “We have implemented extra security precautions, some may be noticeable to guests and others won’t be.”
The West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada, which was also listed, said it has implemented extra security and is working with federal and local law enforcement agencies.
U.S. officials said they’re aware of the threats and urged mall shoppers to be vigilant.
Alberta RCMP Staff Sgt. Brent Meyer said the force is aware of the report of a possible threat and is investigating. According to a statement from the mall, the “West Edmonton Mall has implemented extra security precautions; some may be noticeable to guests, and others won’t be.
The al-Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab appears to call on followers to attack shopping malls in the United States, U.K., France, and Canada and has released a video naming West Edmonton Mall as a possible target.
Close to the end of the nearly 77-minute video, a masked man with an English accent calls on “Muslim brothers to target the disbelievers wherever they are” and lists a number of shopping centres that could be attacked in the West.
“If just a handful of mujahedeen fighters could bring Kenya to a complete standstill for nearly a week, then imagine what a dedicated mujahedeen in the West could do to the American or Jewish-owned shopping centres across the world,” the man says.
“What if such an attack was to occur in the Mall of America in Minnesota, or the West Edmonton Mall in Canada, or in London’s Oxford Street, or any of the hundred or so Jewish-owned Westfield shopping centres dotted right across the western world?” he continues.
Other malls listed in the video include two in Paris, Les Quatre Temps and Forum des Halles.
Obama Spox Josh Earnest Gets Hammered by Ed Henry Over 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians Hehaedsed by ISIS as Compared to 3 Muslims Killed in NC
THE DOUBLE STANDARD RELIGIOUS LABELING OF THE BARACK OBAMA ADMINISTRATION …
Obama spokesperson Josh Earnest to the bait, hook, line and sinker as Ed Henry caught him in an obvious White House double standard like a large mouth bass. Watch the VIDEO below and see the exchange between Ernst and Henry as you are witness to the Obama White House not naming the 21 Egyptians beheaded by ISIS as Coptic Christians; however, the three individuals murdered in North Carolina were labeled Muslims. It gets even better, Ernest is forced to say that the NC murder is still under investigation and it is not known whether their faith had anything to to with their death. However, make no mistake about it, 21 Egyptians were marched along a beach in Libya and had their throats slit because they were Christians.
WELCOME TO THE RELIGIOUS DOUBLE STANDARD OF BARACK OBAMA.
Isn’t it remarkable that Obama would once again interject himself into a crime investigation and make the assumption that the people were killed because of their faith. Sadly, it almost seems like he is hoping that was the case so that he can criticize we Crusaders.
On Wednesday during the press briefing, Henry followed, “Why did you not say 21 Christians were killed?”
Earnest responded, “I can’t account for that specific line of the statement.”
“But we’ve been clear that we condemn this murder. The president was clear in the op-ed that was publish today and on a variety of occasions I think I’ve been pretty clear here,” Earnest said. “We’ve been pretty clear here that we condemn this outrageous killing of these Egyptian citizens because of their Christian faith.”
Henry went on to question Earnest about why the White House “invoked faith” when three Muslim students were killed in North Carolina, but not when Islamic State terrorists beheaded 21 Coptic Christians. Local authorities in the North Carolina slayings believe that the deadly incident was the result of a long-running parking dispute, not religion, USA Today reports.
In his response, Earnest said the president believes no one should be targeted based on their faith. He didn’t answer Henry’s question directly regarding why faith was included in one statement and not the other.
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA … SEE NO EVIL.
OUCH … This one is going to leave a mark. The New York Post shreds Barack Obama and his refusal to call terrorism for what is truly is … Radical Islam jihad. This president is putting the United States national security at risk as he refuses to identify the enemy and yet he smugly speaks at this so called extremism conference when the fact of the matter is, it might just be Obama that is the extremist. Can you imagine if FDR the Nazi’s as individuals who had “legitimate grievances”?
The New York Post on Thursday unveiled a brutal front page targeting President Barack Obama over his recent refusal to acknowledge the role Islam plays in fueling violent extremism around the world.
The cover, first posted on the Drudge Report, featured Obama with a blindfold across his face.
“Islamic terror? I just don’t see it,” it said.
Obama on Wednesday spoke at the White House’s summit on violent extremism, once again contending that “no religion is responsible for terrorism.”
They’re burning and beheading victims in the name of Islam, but President Obama delivered a major speech Wednesday on combating violent extremism — while refusing to use the words “Muslim terrorists.”
“No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama told a crowd that included Muslim community leaders at the White House.
Following months of unrelenting atrocities by ISIS killers who released videos of themselves beheading US journalists and, most recently, 21 Coptic Christians, and burning a man alive, the president kowtowed to the audience by proclaiming that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”
You have heard of “cash for clunkers, now comes … “Jobs for Jihadis”. Check out the below video of Dana Loesch mocking the Obama White House and State Department spokesperson Marie Harf’s comments that it is because ISIS lacks jobs and opportunities as to the reason why they are terrorists and barbarically slaughter Christians in the Middle East … #Jobs for Jihadis. However, wouldn’t one of the issues be that the Jihadis would not be interest in Obama’s “green” job agenda, the radical Islamists are more interested in blood “red” ones.
Watch and enjoy … remember when SNL used to have sarcastic humor of real life events like this? I wonder if this humor is too nuanced for State Department spokesperson Marie Harf?
WHO KNEW, ACCORDING TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, ISLAMIST MURDERERS HAVE “LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCES”.
Barack Obama was at it again yesterday with his dangerous talk. Sorry folks, this is one delusional and dangerous president you have elected. Never in my lifetime has an American president so reviled his own country and defended the actions of those that would look to destroy America. Once again Barack Obama was quick to blame America and sympathize with radical Islam referencing the so-called “legitimate grievances” and justifies the actions of killers. How pathetically sad that we have the most non-serious president in office during such a serious time.
“There is a strain of thought that does not embrace ISIL tactics, but does buy into the notion the Muslim world has suffered historic grievances, some times is accurately,” Obama said. “It buys into the belief that flows from the conspiracy, by the idea that Islam is incompatible, that it is polluted by Western values. Those beliefs exist. In some communities around the world, they are widespread. It makes individuals, especially young people who may be disaffected are alienated more rife for radicalization.”
LEGITIMATE GRIEVANCES!!! Hey Barack, sometimes a banana is just a banana.
From Obama’s OPED, UNREAL.
More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.
Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies. Those efforts must be matched by economic, educational and entrepreneurial development so people have hope for a life of dignity.
Simply incredible, in his OPED, Obama some how manages to mention that the three individuals killed in North Carolina were Muslim, even though from all accounts so far that they’re being Muslim had nothing to do with why they were killed by Craig Stephen Hicks. Police have said that initial indications suggested the shooting stemmed from “an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking.” And he mentions the killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012, but some how Barack Hussein Obama can’t seem to find it in himself to call terrorists “radical Islam” or “Islamic terrorists”. The Obama White House could not say that 21 Egyptians beheaded by ISIS were Coptic Christians. Sorry folks, this is one community agitating, sick individual.
That pluralism has at times been threatened by hateful ideologies and individuals from various religions. We’ve seen tragic killings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012 and at a Jewish community center in Kansas last year.
We do not yet know why three young people, who were Muslim Americans, were brutally killed in Chapel Hill, N.C. But we know that many Muslim Americans across our country are worried and afraid. Americans of all faiths and backgrounds must continue to stand united with a community in mourning and insist that no one should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship.
Our campaign to prevent people around the world from being radicalized to violence is ultimately a battle for hearts and minds. With this week’s summit, we’ll show once more that — unlike terrorists who only offer misery and death — it is our free societies and diverse communities that offer the true path to opportunity, justice and dignity.
Obama, addressing the Washington audience on the second day of the summit, said the international community needs to address “grievances” that terrorists exploit, including economic and political issues.
He stressed that poverty alone doesn’t cause terrorism, but “resentments fester” and extremism grows when millions of people are impoverished.
“We do have to address the grievances that terrorists exploit including economic grievances,” he said.
He also said no single religion was responsible for violence and terrorism, adding he wants to lift up the voice of tolerance in the United States and beyond.
EXIT QUESTION: OBAMA SAYS THAT THE WEST IS NOT AT WAR WITH ISLAM … BUT IS ISLAM AT WAR WITH THE WEST?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf Trying to Defend Her ‘JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” Comments … Quotes the GWB Doctrine
GOOD GRIEF, STATE DEPT SPOX IS STILL TRYING TO DEFEND HER JOBS FOR JIHADISTS COMMENTS … WHO IS THE JV?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf goes on the defensive and tells us that we are just not smart enough to understand what she said … Marie Harf to Critics: Maybe My Comments Were ‘Too Nuanced’ for you. Looks like the MSM is giving Harf another opportunity to explain her ridiculous comments. That’s correct, Harf defends her “JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” comments. What else is the liberal Democrat media complex to do. Harf appeared with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room and attempted to clarify her point. Sorry, did I just hear Harf repeat the following, “We cannot kill every terrorist around the world, nor should we try.” NOR SHOULD WE TRY? NOR SHOULD WE TRY!!!
Maybe Barack Obama will create a new government program, Welfare and Food Stamps for terrorist.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
Unbelievable, she is quoting George W. Bush and the Bush doctrine. This from the same Obama administration that has had nothing good to say about GWB and his handling of the war on terror. Barack Obama has tried to distance himself from w, and change everything and anything away from Bush … now when backed into a corner because of so-called “nuanced” comments, they turn to GWB to defend their foreign policy. ARE YOU KIDDING? You know the Obama administration has hit rock bottom when they need W for help.
State Department spokesperson Harf tries to put the toothpaste back in the tube as she goes on the defensive regarding her ignorant comments. Check out the Twitter-fest at Twitchy as Harf is just making matters worse trying to defend her foolish comments. Hey Ms. Harf, backpedaling from beyond stupid comments is like quicksand, the more you try, the worse it gets. Get this, for the past 6 years and two years prior to that campaigning for president, Barack Obama distanced himself and trashed George W. Bush for his handled the war on terror, now his administration is quoting Bush and appealing to the Bush Doctrine.
Marie Harf - @marieharf
Jobs programs don’t quite cut it when you’re in the 72 virgins business. This is where the administration’s comprehensive denial of the motive forces driving the terrorists is key. They aren’t looking for work. They aren’t looking to get rich. They aren’t looking for early childhood education. They aren’t looking for daycare programs. They’ve got something else on their mind, something else that is taboo to speak of in the higher reaches of the Obama administration.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said this afternoon. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
“So you suggested that maybe if you find these young men jobs, they might not become terrorists?” Blitzer asked.
JOBS FOR JIHADISTS … Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathews Trashes State Dept Spox Marie Harf’s Obama Talking Points Idiocy, … “We Cannot Win This War by Killing Them” … “Lack of Opportunity for Jobs”
BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE SAME PRESIDENT WHO GAVE YOU CASH FOR CLUNKERS, NOW COMES OBAMA’S WAY TO END ISIS … JOBS FOR JIHADISTS!!!
Obama’s war on terror is in reality a jobs program for Jihadists.
Just when you thought the Obama admin could not be more of a bunch of terrorist deniers, now these libs put forth that they can end radical Islam with a jobs program. America, you know it is bad for Barack Obama when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews laughs at your foreign policy and slaps your State Department spokesperson upside her head as to Obama’s end game with ISIS. Mathews began the interview by stating, “if I were ISIS. I would not be afraid right now. There is no existential threat to these people, they can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their proper together , and killing people for show, and nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.”
State Department spokesperson Marie Harf unbelievable said the following, “We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs.” WHAT!!! Jobs, jobs? This insane administration thinks that if Jihadists have jobs, they will stop them from beheading innocent men, women and children. Just curious America, how frightened are you right now that these people are in power? This idiot speaks for Sec. of State John Kerry, who follows the foreign policy strategy of Barack Obama and she just told the enemy that an organized US military and their allies cannot defeat ISIS. I would ask the following question, then why are we there? Surprisingly, Matthews shot back with a look of, are you effing kidding me stating, “But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join.” WOW, how many times can you say that you agreed with Chris Matthews?
So let’s understand this, professor Obama is using Root cause analysis to defeat ISIS, really? The root cause analysis of burning people alive, mass beheadings, seriously? So we are going to use The 5 Whys, Barrier Analysis, Events and Causal Factor Charting and Realitycharting to determine what makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business? GOD HELP US THAT WE CAN SURVIVE THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY.
Chris Matthews amazingly says at the end, to my surprise, in response to Marie Harf’s blathering, “this sounds like how we are going to get rid of juvenile delinquency in America over time by erasing poverty and improving education.” Then Mathews said, “the American people I think are getting humiliated morally by this.” BINGO!!! And there lies Obama’s ultimate goal, he is a community agitator socialist at heart who blames America for all the evils of the world.
MARIE HARF, U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT: I think there are a few stages here, right now we are trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq & Syria, that is where they really flourish.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: Are we killing enough of them?
MARIE HARF: We’re killing a lot of them. And we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians and Jordanians, they’re in this fight with us. We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs–
CHRIS MATTHEWS: But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?
MARIE HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies, so they can have job opportunities for these people. [...] What makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business?
57% of Americans prior to this nonsense of “jobs for Jihadists” disapproved of how Barack Obama was handling ISIS, look for this number to go up as it is clear that Barack Obama has no plan or strategy to take on ISIS because frankly, he does not take it seriously.
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
ISIS Releases VIDEO of Barbaric Mass Beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya (Update: Egypt Bombs ISIS in Revenge for Beheadings)
ISIS releases another barbaric VIDEO showing the mass beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya. Making matters worse, if possible, these vile acts took place in Tripoli, Libya. Remember when we used to have a presence and am embassy in there? Just yet another example of Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy and terrorist on the run.
Islamic State has released a video purporting to show the militant group beheading 21 Egyptian Christians kidnapped in Libya.
The video, released this afternoon, shows ISIS fighters dressed head to toe in black, marching the captives, all wearing orange jumpsuits, to a beach.
The 21 men can be seen being forced onto their knees before they are beheaded by the militants standing behind them.
The extremely graphic video first appeared on the Twitter feed of a website that supports Islamic State.
A caption on the five-minute video read: ‘The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church.’
PICS – Warning, graphic imagery.
In the picture below from the YouTube VIDEO, the masked ISIS terrorist says, “Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.” Thanks Barack Obama for providing these savages talking points when you stated at this years National Prayer breakfast that some how Christians were to blame for all of this because they started it with the Crusades. You sad and pathetic excuse for a president.
“Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.”
Egypt sent warplanes over the border to bomb ISIS targets in Libya on Monday in revenge for a savage attack on Egyptian Christians.
It was still dark when the F-16 fighter jets took off, striking training camps and weapons depots along Libya’s coast. One of the targets was Derna – headquarters for many Islamic militants who have sworn allegiance to ISIS.
The bombings came a day after ISIS released a video that appears to show the execution of 21 Egyptian Christians. Masked jihadis are seen marching the captives along a beach, a few whisper their final prayers and then all are beheaded.
Most of the victims came from the Christian village of el-Aour, south of Cairo. On Monday relatives sobbed and shouted in grief. One father begged for the return of his son’s body. Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi visited Cairo’s main cathedral to offer his condolences and condemned what he called “a heinous act of terrorism.”
Obama White House Issued a Statement Following the Shooting at a Free Speech Event in Denmark … Once Again Failed to Call it Terrorist
SHAMEFUL: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JUST CANT FIND T IN HIMSELF TO CALL TERRORIST ATTACKS FOR WHAT THEY ARE …
Following the shooting at a free speech event in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Obama White House issued a statement calling the attack “deplorable” but did not describe it as “terrorist” in nature. I guess Obama must think this was work place violence. However, the Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt had no problem what so ever calling the attack ?“politically motivated” and “terrorist.”
Denmark’s prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, said the country was on high alert after a “terrorist attack” in Copenhagen that police said had been aimed at a controversial Swedish artist.
“We feel certain now that it was a politically motivated attack, and thereby it was a terrorist attack,” she told reporters close to the site of the shooting, in which one civilian was killed and three policemen were wounded. “We are on high alert all over the country.”
Sadly, the United States has a pathetic president who cannot call terrorism for what it is. Obama cannot call obvious terrorist events for what they are because it goes against his BS, failed narrative that terrorism is being defeated. However, that is quite the opposite. Barack Obama has so downplayed the role of terrorism during his presidency that he has allowed terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda to no longer be on the run and defeated. Instead, Obama’s so-called ISIS jayvee, thanks to his lack of effort and defining the enemy, is now the Varsity.
