Today from Hiiraan Online:
Terrorists Ramp Up Minnesota Recruiting Effort
Thursday, September 12, 2013
Leaders in the Somali community are fighting hard to beat back a ramped up recruitment effort following a sophisticated video. The video depicts men who traveled from Minneapolis to Somalia for jihad and is being used as a recruiting tool.
Community leaders say as many as 40 Somalis have disappeared from Minnesota since 2006. That's double the estimate reported previously. Many have turned up on battlefields in Somalia.
Headway is being made though as community leaders say they are winning over the community and convincing young men to ignore Al Shabaab. However, a high unemployment rate in the Somali community makes the population vulnerable.
It's why an effort is underway to provide training and job skills to Somalis.
