U.S. government officials have been concerned about the growing attraction for American citizens of Somali decent heading to Somalia to join that country’s continuing civil war and insurgency. Last year, FBI officials acknowledged that as many as 20 Somali-American teenagers disappeared from their Minneapolis community, headed to fight with the al-Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab.
A Web site used by a Somali jihadist group that has been tied to a suspected terrorist from Daphne was hosted by an Internet company based in the United States, according to a private investigator. Bill Warner, an investigator from Sarasota, Fla., who tried to shut down a number of Web sites linked to extremist groups, said he first targeted an al-Shabaab Web site in May 2008 after the U.S. government labeled it a terrorist organization. Dotster Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., took the Web site down in January, Warner said, after an order from the federal government.
WASHINGTON, Monday Feb. 23, 2009. Somali-Americans and the ‘Global Jihad’. ABC NEWS..A U.S. citizen who killed himself in a suicide bomb attack in Somalia last year was actively recruited in the United States, FBI Director Robert Mueller confirmed.

Eleven youths suspected of being trained with the hardline Islamist group of Al-Shabaab in the south-central Somalia were arrested. The youths reportedly arrived from Mogadishu to Hargeisaand had lived in the United States. The suicide bombers were Somali youths allegedly recruited on and trained by Al-Shabaab movement to carry out the attacks in Hargeisa.
Private investigator Bill Warner says Daphne Ala. terror suspect Omar Hammami aka Abu Mansour al-Amriki linked to jihadist Web site of Al-Shabaab , ABC News confirms al-Amriki is head of propaganda for Al-Shabaab. Hammami, 25, attended Daphne High School and the University of South Alabama. Warner said news reports of Hammami’s past as a computer science student confirmed his suspicions that al-Amriki had provided technical assistance to al-Shabaab. “At that time, I suspected he was involved with setting up the Web site,” he said. “It appears Omar, with his background, is the perfect guy to set this up for them.”
Abu Mansoor al-Amriki (the American) has raised his profile in recent months, and followed in the footsteps of the better known Adam Gadahn, an American al Qaeda operative based in Pakistan. Gadahn is wanted by the FBI, and the State Department has offered a $1 million reward for his capture. Abu Mansoor has not risen to that level of infamy yet, but appears to be making efforts to land on the notorious Rewards for Justice list. Abu Mansoor first appeared in a September 2007 video that aired on al-Jazeera. Near the end of the message, Gadahn and three other apparent Americans jihadists are shown.
Omar Hammami, 25, attended Daphne High School and the University of South Alabama.

CONGRESSIONAL HEARING TO TESTIFY AT A HEARING ENTITLED: VIOLENT ISLAMIST EXTREMISTS: Al SHABAAB RECRUITMENT IN AMERICA   Statement of Osman Ahmed On Behalf of the Victim Families Whose Children Have been Recruited And Kidnapped To Somalia
Before the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Washington, DC

There are five children among the many that were sent to Somalia. Burhan Hassan(17 years old, senior at Roosevelt High), Mohamud Hassan(18 years old, studying Engineering at the University of Minnesota), Abdisalam Ali(19 years old, studying health at the University of Minnesota) and Jamal Aweys(19 years old, studying engineering at Minneapolis Community and Technical College –MCTC- and later at Normandale College here in Minnesota) as well as Mustafa Ali (18 years old, studying at Harding High School in St. Paul.

All these youth shared common things. They all left Somali in their infancy like my nephew Burhan Hassan. He was eight (8) months old when they arrived at the refugee camp in Kenya. He was less than four (4) years old (February 12, 1996) when they came to the USA. These kids have no perception of Somalia except the one that was formed in their mind by their teachers at the Abu-Bakar Center. We believe that these children did not travel to Somalia by themselves. There must be others who made them understand that going to Somalia and participating the fighting is the right thing to do.
One thing for sure is that the methods of indoctrination are highly sophisticated. The plan of Al-Shabaab is basically to destroy the world peace and they will turn every leaf to achieve that. Their mission is not isolated into Somalia but has far reaching goals.


Ahmed Abdi Godane (aka Sheikh Abu Zubeyr) leads the Al-Shabaab movement, deemed the Emir of the jihadist organization, and is assisted by aten-member council (Shura). Al-Shabaab apparently is divided into independently functioning cells covering distinct geographic areas, which have distinct political and military commanders.

Mohammad Dinni makes the rounds of US campus’s speaking on Somalia, his lecturers are sponsored by the local chapters of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), Omar Hammami aka Abu Mansour al-Amriki was the president of the MSA at the University of South Alabama.  MOHAMED DIINI VISITS SWEDEN: MEETS SOMALI COMMUNITY, KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT NORTH EUROPE’S LARGEST MUSLIM YOUTH CONFERENCE. April 24, 2009 at 11:19 pm.  Considering Mohammad Diini’s education at the extremist Institute for Arabic and Islamic Sciences; his spiritual leadership position at the extremist Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in the Washington D.C.-area; his current public support of the two imams at the center of the largest counterterrorism investigation since 9/11; and his current position as Somali youth leader at the Noor Center, adds to the present concern of his connections to Omar Hammami aka Abu Mansour Al-Amriki from Daphne Ala who has shown up in Somalia as one of the Al-Shabaab leaders and/or website designer.

The Bay and Bakool command is led by Mukhtar Robow (former spokesperson not directly affiliated to Shabaab); the Mogadishu Command is apparently led by Sheikh Ali Fidow and three other commanders. Some of Al-Shabaab’s top commanders are originally from relatively stable regions of the country, including Abu Zubeyr and Ibrahim Haji Jaama ‘al-Afghani’, who are both from Somaliland, and notorious commander and Swedish national Fuad Mohamed Shangole.

The Al-Shabbab terror group in Somalia has recruited young Somalia men in the USA on their website from April 2007 to January 23rd 2009, they even had a special page for their “shadid’s” that appeared to grow almost daily. Al Shabaab terrorists in Somalia had thier website spewing out propaganda on a website hosted by the Dotster Co. in Vancouver, Washington, USA. Al Shabaab is listed as a terrorist organization by US State Dept, Al Shabaab is an Islamic terrorist group linked to Al-Qaeda that operates/controls southern Somalia and in Mogadishu.
