The FBI has been unable to find charges that stick to a Maryland Imam who openly encourages American Muslims to join the Islamic State.

The Imam, Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, openly endorsed ISIS on facebook, has allegedly radicalized at least two would-be American terrorists, and is known to have sent large sums of money to active terrorist zones.

So now we have an attack in Minnesota that looks like a smaller scale version of the Westgate attack in Kenya carried out by Somali Muslims. Al-Shabaab, the Jihadist group responsible for that attack, is popular with Somali Muslim settlers in Minnesota. 

And, like the Westgate attack, the Muslim terrorist following his racist supremacist creed, asked people if they were Muslim before attacking them.

Rome (dpa) - A Moroccan man who served as a "stand-in imam" in a mosque in northern Italy was forcibly repatriated home because he refused to accept Italian constitutional rights such as gender parity, Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said Thursday.
