You know what this means — President Obama will go before the American people, again, and proselytize for Islam. Islam is peace and all that tripe.
The only thing that equals Obama saying Islam is not Islamic is Department of Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson warning those of us going to the mall that it’s not safe and “to be particularly careful” after a Muslim terrorist group called for attacks on U.S. and U.K. malls.
If DHS can’t protect us at the malls, why do we need a Department of Homeland Security? To target patriots and constitutionalists?
The Shabaab al-Mujahideen Movement, al-Qaeda’s branch in Somalia, released a documentary-style video on the September 2013 raid at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and threatened that “Westgate was just the beginning, and with all hopes of peace forever dashed, Kenya’s darkest hour is yet to come”. Arabic and English versions of the production, entitled, “The Westgate Siege – Retributive Justice,” were distributed on Twitter on February 21, 2015. In one segment in the 76 minute, 44 second video, Shabaab spokesman Ali Mahmoud Ragi (AKA Ali Dheere) warned: “The war has not really started yet, and between us is a long account still to be settled. Westgate is just a drop in the ocean compared to what you have inflicted upon our Muslim brothers in Mombasa, Garissa, and Jilib. The attacks and raids will continue and, by the will of Allah, they will not stop until you change your oppressive practices against our brothers and restore their rights in full. What awaits you is far more grievous and more bitter by the permission of Allah.”

Al Shabaab calls for attack on Mall of America in new video,” FOX News, February 22, 2015
A new video from Al Shabaab purportedly shows the terror group calling for an attack on Mall of America, in Bloomington, Minn.
According to Fox 9, the mall is one of three similar targets the terror group specifically names, including West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Oxford Street shopping area in London.
The video purportedly shows 6 minutes of graphic images and the terrorists celebrating the 2013 Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed more than 60 people.
“We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” Mall of America said in a statement. “As always, we take any potential threat seriously and respond appropriately. Mall of America has implemented extra security precautions, some may be noticeable to guests, and others won’t be. We will continue to follow the situation, along with law enforcement, and will remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations.”
Al Shabaab, Somalia’s Islamic extremist rebels, claimed responsibility for a Friday attack on a hotel in Somalia’s capital that killed 25 people and wounded 40, the country’s government said Saturday.
One Islamic extremist rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the gate of the Central Hotel, and another went in and blew himself up, a statement from Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke’s office said.
Government officials were meeting at the Central Hotel at the time, and the statement said Mogadishu’s deputy mayor and two legislators were among the dead. It was unclear whether the government’s report of 25 dead included the two bombers.
Despite the loss of key strongholds in Somalia, Al Shabaab, which is linked to Al Qaeda, continues to stage attacks in the capital, Mogadishu, and elsewhere.
Somalia’s president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, condemned the attack and said it would not derail efforts by his government to restore peace to Somalia, which is recovering from decades of war.
This is the second attack on a hotel in Mogadishu in less than a month. On Jan. 22, three Somali nationals were killed when a suicide car bomber blew himself up at the gate of a hotel housing the advance party of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who visited the country days later.
Al Shabaab controlled much of Mogadishu during the years 2007 to 2011, but was pushed out of Somalia’s capital and other major cities by African Union forces.
