Unexamined Premises

They’re Not ‘Americans’

Minnesotans?

Or “Britons.” Or “Norwegians.” Call them what they call themselves: Muslim members of the ummah:

As many as 15 Somali-American men have left their homes in Minnesota in recent months to travel to the Middle East and join up with ISIS, the jihadist army at war with Syria and Iraq, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

The fighters appear to have made the decision to go fight with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria/Levant while the terror group was fighting to overthrow Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, but some may now be in Iraq, where the marauding group is seeking to topple Baghdad. ”A Muslim has to stand up for [what's] right,” Abdirahmaan Muhumed told MPR News through a series of Facebook messages dating back to the beginning of the year. “I give up this worldly life for Allah.”

You can read more of Muhumed here, but let’s start with these fun facts –

A profile of Muhumed by Minnesota Public Radio this past June described him as a 29-year-old Somali-American who had been married more than once and was a father of nine children. MPR reported, citing the FBI, that at least 15 young men from the Twin Citites’ Somali-American community had traveled to Syria to join Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS that has captured wide swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

In a Facebook messages to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote “I give up this worldly life for Allah” and “Allah loves those who fight for his cause.” A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.

– and be sure to watch the video, in which two clueless Fox babes natter on about the story with the same kind of gravity they might bring to a story about Kim Kardashian.

But hey, what’s nationality these days as long as you have a passport? As “David Kahane” wrote in Rules for Radical Conservatives:

And look at the results: we’ve gotten an entire generation of journalists to frame every issue through the structuralist lens of race, class, ethnicity and gender (which is what we used to call sex before sex became so commonplace that it’s more titillating to think about having gender these days than it is to think about having sex).  It doesn’t matter what the news event: once past the actual report of the event, the press can be counted on now to move the story to the next level, to interpret it in the media’s own alternative universe of bias, discrimination, glass ceilings and unicorns.  Admit that you’re no longer surprised when you read a headline or a Chyron like this:

            Two Swedes charged in plot to bomb airliner.

The first you think of is a couple of big, blond guys who look like Dolph Lundgren, or maybe a guy and gal who looks like a member of the Swedish bikini team.  What you don’t think of – of course you wouldn’t, you filthy racist – are a couple of Arabs from North Africa, who had been living in Sweden as asylum-seekers while they merrily colluded with al-Qaeda and, surfed the jihadi beheading videos on the Internet and exchanged messages of spiritual guidance and consolation with an imam in Yemen.

So sensitive are the members of the American Fourth Estate to the slightest hint of racism – which, under the current definition consists of the very act of noticing that someone is of a different race than you – that they have utterly altered what we used to consider reality: that Sweden was a country, like most European nation-states, of cousins who shared a common language, culture, history and gene pool.  It was not a racist cliché to assume that many Swedes were, in fact, tall, blond and good-looking, it was a fact.  But now the definition of ethnicity has been changed, in part to reflect that all the European countries are undergoing a demographic and immigration-driven hollowing-out, and that what we used to think of as being quintessentially “British,” “Italian” or even “German” will no longer be true in the future, if it even still is, and that henceforth you will be blinded to the demographic changes going on across the pond and right here at home.  And the media leads the way.

It's okay with me if they leave here and go there. It's even better if they leave here and die there.

Can we make it 1500, instead of 15?

Per day, I mean.

"No way to Democratize..."?
Hell, there is no way to CIVILIZE! To borrow a phrase, As long as they cling to their Korans and guns... Then they are incompatible with civilization.

The National Association Of Man-Boy Love has lodged a formal protest against every Western country for not giving them their own town already supplied with 1400 little children.

The protest announces that in honor of the National Association of Pakistani-Waif Love, every town gifted to either of them will be named, We Don't Give A Rottingdam, but just called Rottingdam for short.

There was a rumor that the NAPWL was originally titled New Applications of Polanski Woody Love, but that cannot be confirmed.

Minnesota elected a paranoid professional wrestler who likes to pick on widows and a comedian who had no act...before and after being elected Senator, so some of us are having a touch of difficulty registering our shocked face reaction to the news that they are harboring headhunting jihadists in their freak show national stage play.

It seems a bit incongruous to throw open your borders to gangbangers and jihadists and lawyer them up coming in only to defrock the little angels when they go off on a King Kong Koran excursion. If the little dears would just stay home and blow up "typical white people" they can stay lawyered up and most of the not yet headless journalists would search for "root causes" of their disaffection in the Bible and melanin manifestos.

Oh, well. Bogey Obama is going to issue an amnesty fiat and a global warming fiat between rounds in the coming days. Looks like he wants to rename every American city, "I Don't Give a Rottingdam".

And that...would be par for the course.

EscapeVelocity: So illegal immigration is not to be tolerated in the US or Europe, but Israel has to allow it? Nah, you're not anti-Semite. It's just that the people you hate all happen to be Jews, right?

Fail Burton: there are no Jewish Somalis, so what are you talking about? Do you mean Ethiopeans?

Actually, I was pointing out the hypocrisy of many Jews (and many Jewish neo-cons) on this issue with regards to the US and Israel.

I support Israel's enforcing it's immigration policy, and an immigration policy that seeks to preserve the Jewish nature of Israel.

However, I also support that for European Christian nation states...including the Anglo Nations. American Jewish support is slim to none in this area, however. Does that make them Anti-EuropeanChristian bigots according to your logic? Hmmmm....

Those who asset, "Jihad is the Way" are incompatible with the core attributes of being a Canadian, an American, British, Norwegian, and so forth.

So, who has ideas as to how to broaden the context so that citizenship entails responsibilities (one being fealty to the message of the Magna Carta and other liberating documents, instead of entering the noetic prison that comes with fealty to the Koran), as well as rights?

Those who assert, "there is no god but Allah & Mohammad is his messenger" are incompatible...

Those hot Faux babes are still calling those young men written about in the above article as extremists.

The only extremists within Islam are the Apostates. BTW, what's with the nine kids? Was he on the government sugar tit too?

Wait for it, it WILL happen! Obama, Pelosi and the democrats will propose that, in fairness, some sort of combat injury or death benefits should be paid because these guys were "from America." Guarantee it will come up!

Nitpick: Britain consisted of several ethnic groups: Scots, Welsh, and English (which can be further subdivided). As soon as you're calling someone "British" you're already transnational.

America, of course, was transnational from the start.

Partly correct. A "Briton" has a specific, Celtic tribal meaning -- e.g. King Arthur of the Britons -- which came in time to be applied to the Anglo-Saxons who succeeded the Celts. The Scots, the Welsh and the Cornishmen are, of course, Celts as well. As are the Irish, although we are not "British" in any sense whatsoever.

The Irish used to be British, in the sense of being part of Britain, before they became independent. They used to elect MPs to the British Parliament did they not? (Sorry, Irish history is not my strong suit.) I don't mean to imply that the Irish were FOND of the people from England and Scotland who they perceived as colonizing their country.

They are Americans. Their passports say so. As is written below, the trans-nationalists are in control. Those like Burton who claim the problem is immigrants per se are missing the boat (so to speak). The elites themselves, supposedly American to the core, sell sovereignty on the cheap. But Burton and others here will never challenge the elites. To do so, they would have to admit the true state of affairs. It is easier to blame all immigrants, whether Muslim or not. A sort of hypocrisy, really.

Your comment makes no sense. Did you imagine I was asking or expecting immigrants to not come? And if the problem isn't immigrants per se, why is Israel booting out Somalis, keeping the Jewish ones and refusing to annex the West Bank? I am not blaming immigrants for their own failures. Who wouldn't want to move to a redesigned apartment beyond your own capabilities to build and with free money too? Who am I to appeal to then: lobbyists? There is only one thing left: the law.

End all legal immigration. For that to happen needs a grass roots movement, not calling out multi-millionaires who laugh at law.

There is no reason to end ALL legal immigration. We used to have a sensible immigration policy. We can again.

So what do you do with, say, a person such as Ken Livingstone -- former mayor of London, supporter of HAMAS, and who was quoted as wanting to make London "a beacon of Islam". IMO Such individuals (duly elected in a democracy) pose as much a threat as any immigrant.

I agree with Fail Burton. There needs to be a moratorium on all immigration to European Christendom.

If their passports were issued by the U.S. State Department then it says their nationality is 'United States of America'.

I don't consider myself an American as I have no native Indian blood. I do consider myself a Texan as my parents and their parents were born in Texas. And I am a citizen of the United States. But then, 'American' is a western concept.

I am NOT under any circumstances a terrorist, excepting to liberals.

"I don't consider myself an American as I have no native Indian blood."

That's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard on that topic.

HINT: They were here long before Europeans called it "America".

Oh what a disgrace if such a despised and base cult, which worships a misantrope pedophile demon, should be allowed to assault those of the Christian faith! With what reproaches will the Lord overwhelm us if we do not promptly and fully stand with those who are being attacked and even murdered for processing the Christian faith! Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against other of the faithful now all unite and go against the Mohammedans in a Holy Crusade and end with total victory this war against monstrous evil which should have been completed long ago.

Let those who for too long a time have been dhimmis, now become knights. Let negligent and sinful clergy who refuse to help these lesser ones and hence refuse to help Christ now repent and become Vicars of Christ. Let those who have been fighting in service of Mohammedans against their own Christian brothers and sisters and their own Jewish cousins now fight in a proper way against all the followers of the misanthrope pedophile demon. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul in vain attempt to win the small minds and dark hearts of the Mohammedans now labor for glorious honor against them. Behold! On the one side will be the completely destroyed Mohammedans, on the other the fierce and righteous protectors of humanity. On the one side will be the destroyed enemies of the Lord, on the other, his friends who will shout at all the Mohammedans and their enablers as they destroy them, "Christus vincit! Christus vincit! Christus vincit! Deus vult! Deus vult! Deus vult!"

This is what you get when you elect trans-nationalists to office. They have no intrinsic loyalty to the people of the country which elected them and usually view the cultural traditions of their countries as an impediment to creating whatever nasty little utopia they have in mind. In order to make their country part of heaven on earth they must first make it hell for the people who currently inhabit it, and that often starts by opening the borders.

"This is what you get when you elect trans-nationalists to office. "

You could as correctly have said, "This is what you get when you elect Marxists to office. "

They are interchangeable terms.

Who is most like all Muslim's "Perfect Man" Mohammad of them all?

Why, you are ISIS, you are!

There is nothing that ISIS has done that is not totally in accordance with Islam and the teachings of all Muslims' "Perfect Man", Mohammad, and the examples that he personally and repeatedly set. ISIS is just the latest of a long history of Islamic outbreaks. As long as the source tumor remains any "solutions" and respites will be limited and only temporary.

Islam itself is the greatest crime against humanity the world has ever known.
