Inside the Mall of America in Minnesota -- the largest US shopping mall.

The Somali al-Shabaab terror group linked to Al Qaeda has called on Muslims in the West to “answer the call” and attack “American and Jewish-owned” shopping malls in the UK, US and Canada.

In the 77-minute video the speaker, whose face was covered, said, “We call upon our Muslim brothers, particularly those in the West, to answer the call of Allah and target the disbelievers wherever they are,” said a speaker wearing a military jacket, face covered.

Suggesting the Mall of America – the largest mall in the United States – the speaker displayed coordinates for the site on the screen. The “twin cities” of S. Paul and Minneapolis are home to the largest population of Somali immigrants in the U.S. More than a few are known to have traveled from there to the Mideast and Africa to fight with radical Islamist terrorists.

The threat has become a raison d’etre for America’s Department of Homeland Security, which was slated for shutdown this week.

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said Sunday that the propaganda video released Saturday by al-Shabaab, made clear “why I need a budget.” The video also called for attacks on Oxford Street in London and two Westfield Malls in Stratford and White City as well as Canada’s West Edmonton Mall in Alberta – the largest shopping mall in North America.

In an interview over the weekend on CNN, Johnson said “It’s absurd that we’re even having this conversation about Congress’s inability to fund homeland security in these challenging times.”

  1. NEVER DOUBT AMALEK!!!!!! Hey EVIL INCARNATE BEASTs…a message to U LOSERS…Jewish Owned Malls/Storefronts in Texas, Florida and other states(for sure Montana) are more than likely have cameras/detectors…MAJOR surveillance and heavily ARMED…just waiting for the TERRORIST BEAST to just try…

  2. All of you should watch that video for laughs, if for nothing else. The chief lesson appears to be that Kenya did not in fact whip their lousy behinds after the mall mass murder there. Came as quite a shock to me. The theme of their being the superior force in part is bolstered by an interview with someone who says that the Kenyan police, like many in Africa, are guilty of murders. Somehow, that does not mean to me that Al Shabaab cops would be less likely to murder. Anyways, take a look at it if you want to see Israel not deemed the foulest country on the planet for once by these dirtbags.

  3. Your land hasn't been safe for the last 8 years. The Insipid One has droned & Guantanomo'd many thousands of Jihadists into ISIS (at least that's what they blamed his predecessor for)–well done to all the morons who voted him into office–twice. Careful…you kind of sound like an Obama fan boy.

    No, you DHS & TSA have been busy checking little nuns and Jewish women for bombs, but letting The Insipid One's Muslim brothers a free pass. Who have they caught ? Right: no one. Security Kabuki Theater, nothing more.

    As Jake below clearly states, each of you should be armed and defend your own selves and families while shopping.

  4. It is interesting that this video comes out just before the deadline on the end of funding for Homeland security. Is someone other the Somali al-Shabaab terror group linked to Al Qaeda, trying to instill fear in America, the timing can't just be a coincidence!
