Last week I reported about Yusra Ismail, a young Somali woman from Minnesota who stole a passport to travel to the Islamic State. The Obama administration is importing whole Muslim communities from Islamic countries like Somalia. Their refugee status is determined by the UN. The “diversity” immigration numbers are doubling, tripling in some months. There is no way to tell how many of the “refugees” are jihadists or have jihadist sympathies or aspirations — no one makes any attempt to determine that.
Yusra Ismail is the 7th. There will be many more. And that is just how many have been charged. Many more have gone who have not been charged.
Another Minnesota resident of Somali descent has been charged with a crime related to an attempt to join Syrian jihadists.
Yusra Ismail, a 20-year-old St. Paul woman, is charged with stealing and misusing a passport to travel to Syria. Ismail, who is not a U.S. citizen, left the United States Aug. 21, apparently using the passport she stole from an acquaintance.
Although there are no records currently available to show Ismail traveled beyond Norway, an affidavit in support of the complaint said that Ismail “departed the United States using a stolen passport and likely traveled to Syria.”
On Aug. 24, Ismail wrote to her family saying she was now in “Sham,” described in the affidavit as “the area within Syria and Iraq where the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (‘ISIS’) is attempting to establish a caliphate.”
Although Ismail was scheduled to return to the U.S. on Sept. 1, there is no evidence she came back.
Thus far seven people, including Ismail, have been charged this year with traveling to Syria in support of ISIS. Last week, two other Minneapolis-area Somalis were charged with conspiring to provide material support to ISIS, also known as the Islamic State. Abdullahi Yusuf and Abdi Nur allegedly obtained expedited passports and booked flights to Turkey using cash from unknown sources. Nur, who left the country in May and has not returned, told an undercover federal agent he went “to the brothers.” He added that we “will see each other in afterlife inshallah” (God willing).
