It would appear that the answer to that question is yes. For the past several months the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been investigating a total of twenty Somali born men living in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area with ties to, not surprisingly, Al Qaeda. Strangely enough, he was in Somalia to help this same Al Qaeda linked group.

Burhan Hassan was only seventeen years old when he was killed by the people that had worked through the local mosque to recruit him. So much for local mosques being a site for religious activity.

This is not the only example of terrorist sleeper cells (inactive until ordered into action by their leaders) in our country. Whether acting alone or in groups they have been present for many years and unless we do something they will continue to endanger our loved ones. Here are just a few examples:
January 1993—An assault just outside CIA headquarters at Langley, VA killed two CIA employees.
March 1994—An attack on a van carrying Orthodox Jewish BOYS killed one BOY while they are driving across the Brooklyn Bridge.
February 1997—A Danish tourist is killed while visiting the top of the Empire State Building. The murderer? Ali Abu Kamal, a Palestinian. Six other innocent people were wounded in the attack.
September 2002—Patrick Gott, carrying a shotgun and a Koran (“Prophet” Muhammad’s ramblings) entered the New Orleans Airport and killed one person and wounded another.
October 2002—The “Beltway Shooters”, John Mohammad and Lee Malvo who killed 13 people in the Washington D. C. area are both muslim converts.
February 2007—Ibrihim Ahmed, a Muslim cabdriver in Nashville, TN tried to run two passengers down after they left his cab because they didn’t agree with him about islam.

For those worried that our government is not taking the muslim threat seriously enough, here is a statement release by Attorney General Eric Holder on June 5, 2009:

“The President’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcements and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth."

There is no such pledge for the nation’s Christian citizens.

In closing two more interesting pieces of information about the muslim that killed a United States soldier in Arkansas.
1. The “man” arrested and charged in the killing says what he did is an “act for the sake of God, for the sake of Allah, the Lord of all the world, and also a retaliation on (the) U. S. military".
2. He went on to say, speaking as a muslim, “We don’t believe in turning the other cheek.”
