Abu Mansour al-Amriki who is Omar Hammami of Daphne AL, is the rare Caucasian face in al Qaeda's online Internet propaganda videos beckoning fighters to come to Somalia from the USA, the UK, Yemen and elsewhere. No one knows his real American name. In jihadi circles, he is simply known as "The American." What is known is that he is one of the Al-Shabaab leaders calling for new recruits many of them American boys of Somali descent from Boston, Seattle, San Diego, Columbus OH, Minneapolis and Atlanta GA, " We see a lot more Internet recruiting being targeted to Somalia youth in the USA and elsewhere."
The Al-Shabaab website had been hosted in Vancouver WA and played to the large Somali youth audience in the USA. See the Vancouver WA Columbian Newspaper's article on the Al-Shabaab website http://www.kataaib.net/ by clicking on "In Out View-Interent Censor", the Columbian Newspaper's attack piece on private investigator Bill Warner that was run on May 7th, 2008, criticizing his efforts to shut down the Al-Shabaab terrorist website http://www.kataaib.net/ . Al-Shabaab in Somalia is also recruiting terrorists from Yemen, currently battle hardened jihadists are entering Somalia via boats from the coast of Yemen, but that is all set to change.

He arrived in the Philippines in 1988 and he became the first director, the founding director, of the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) of Saudi Arabia.
