Today the Department of Justice announced that two Somalians have been arrested after they believed they bought flights to join and fight for ISIS in Egypt.
Two men, one who held refugee status and another who became a lawful permanent resident of the United States, have been arrested after they attempted to leave the United States to fight for the Islamic State in Egypt. Both men are from Somalia, the home country of the notorious Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
The two men were allegedly in communication with individuals they believed to be members of the Islamic State, who authorities say gave them logistical information to travel to Egypt and join the Islamic terrorist group. They allegedly expressed an interest in fighting for ISIS or attacking the United States.
However, the Somalians were actually communicating with the FBI.
From the Department of Justice press release:
According to the criminal complaint, the defendants had been in communication with an FBI undercover employee whom they believed was a supporter of ISIS ideology. These communications revealed the defendants’ desire to travel overseas in order to fight on behalf of ISIS or to conduct an attack within the United States if they were unable to travel. Ultimately, the defendants purchased airline tickets to travel to Egypt, with the intention to travel on to Sinai and join ISIS. FBI agents arrested Mohamed and Hussein after they checked in for their flight at the Tucson International Airport in Arizona.
According to court documents, both defendants came to the United States as refugees from Somalia. At the time of their arrest, Mohamed had obtained lawful permanent resident status and Hussein remained a refugee.
While these men are not from Omar’s district, Fox News previously noted how her district’s Somalian population has become a hotbed for ISIS terrorist recruitment.
More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.
FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.
Omar herself has had a hard time staying out of the headlines. Earlier today, she retweeted a disgusting tweet advocating violence against Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), saying that he deserved the beating he suffered at the hands of a neighbor over a dispute related to lawn maintenance.

Washington Democrats Seek To Push LGBT Sex Ed For Kindergarteners
Democrats in the state of Washington are now seeking to institute a statewide LGBT-focused sex ed program that would be taught to students ranging from kindergarten to high school.
House Bill 2184 would institute “comprehensive sexual health education” in Washington’s public schools by the year 2022.
A parental watchdog group in the state is raising the alarm, calling out the progressive legislation for its marketing of adult sexuality to children.
“In most cases “comprehensive” doesn’t mean what we think it means. Most of us might think that means the biology of…
Another post from the Informed Parents of Washington revealed some of the sexually explicit content the sex ed program has lined up for sixth graders.
The 3 Rs begins to sexualize children very early with role playing and group exercises regarding sexual relationships. …
A program of sex ed that is taught to kindergarteners may be unprecedented in national American public education, especially considering it’s slated to include morally controversial topics such as homosexuality.
A survey by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction revealed that Washington parents are overwhelmingly opposed to the notion of teaching sex ed to kids as young as kindergarteners. More than 10,000 responses have been recorded, and over 58% of Washingtonians are opposed to the notion of youth sex ed.
But the state’s Democratic government is fine with simply ignoring the will of parents with children in public schools, plowing ahead with the sex ed program regardless of public sentiment.
A Republican legislator, Michelle Cardier, described the program’s content as “completely inappropriate” in a radio interview. “I think that if it is inappropriate for me to say [at the state house], I don’t think that’s something that I would want to teach a kindergartner.”
97 people have signed up to testify at the Washington House of Representatives in regards to the controversial sex ed, proposal, but only 16 are being allowed to because of time restraints.
