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. The narrator, his face wrapped in a black-and-white kaffiyeh-type scarf and wearing a camouflage jacket, spoke with a British accent and appeared to be of Somali origin. He accused Kenyan troops in Somalia of committing abuses against Somali Muslims. He ended the video by calling on Muslim men to attack other shopping malls in Western countries. An image of the Mall of America is shown in the video, alongside its GPS coordinates. The mall says it is ramping up its security in response.
Al-Shabaab Terror Group That Claimed Kenya Attack Has Recruited Americans Before. The same group that claimed responsibility for an attack on a Kenyan mall that has claimed at least 68 lives has previously recruited dozens of Americans to join their cause. U.S. officials estimate that as many as 50 Americans have traveled to training camps in Somalia, the home of the al Qaeda-linked terror group al-Shabaab, over the last six years. Al-Shabaab released a video showing three young men claiming to be from Minneapolis who the terror group said later died as martyrs. Another American, Omar Hammami of Daphne, Ala., rose to a leadership position in al-Shabaab until he was reportedly killed by rivals in the group. Hammami, widely known as the rapping jihadist on www.kataaib.net, recorded several videos of himself rhyming about what he saw as his holy war against the West and the glory of martyrdom. Hammami and other al-Shabaab leaders have vowed to hit U.S. targets and officials worry the American recruits would return home with that mission in mind.

PRESS-REGISTER MOBILE AL….A Website used by the Somali jihadist group Al-Shabaab that has been tied to a suspected terrorist from Daphne was hosted by an Internet company based in the United States, according to a private investigator. Bill Warner, an investigator from Sarasota, Fla., who tried to shut down a number of Websites linked to extremist groups, said he first targeted an al-Shabaab Web site in May 2008 after the U.S. government labeled it a terrorist organization. Dotster Inc. of Vancouver, Wash., took the Website down in January 2009, Bill Warner said, after an order from the federal government, but the damage had been done. The Al-Shabaab (Al-Qaeda linked) terrorist recruiting website http://www.kataaib.net that has been hosted by the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA since April 13rd 2007 was finally shut down by a US Government order on Jan 23rd 2009! “Registrant: Domain pending cancellation per government order c/o 8100 NE Parkway Drive, Suite 300 Vancouver, WA 98662 US, phone 360-253-2210″
Bill Warner said he has run a detective agency for 20 years and has been trying to shut down terrorist Websites — on his own time without pay — since 2003. When watching an April 2007 al-Shabaab Web posting, he said, he was particularly intrigued by one of the men on the Website, a fair-skinned man, who stood apart from the Somali fighters. That man went by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki. Fox News reported that his true identity is Omar Hammami and that he faces a secret indictment in Mobile’s federal court on a charge of providing material support to terrorists, Hammami was killed in Somalia. The FBI knew about Omar Hammami and his website http://www.kataaib.net since early 2007.
