Not long ago, six men from a Muslim Somali community in Minneapolis were arrested for attempting to leave the country and join ISIS as terror fighters. The backgrounds of these men were notable, as each held the potential to excel at productive endeavors and create a life of abundance and happiness. These were men who chose, conscientiously, to reject freedom and prosperity in favor of death and destruction.
A filmmaker named Ami Horowitz visited the Ceder-Riverside community which these men called home to ask Muslims on the street whether they preferred to live under American law or Sharia law. He also asked for their views on the freedom of speech and insults against Mohammed.
The answers he received, documented in the video above, demonstrate that the six men arrested for conspiring to join ISIS were not anomalies. Rather, they were predictable products of their culture, a culture which America has welcomed into its gates.
