Are Minnesotans being recruited for Jihad in Somalia?

So now, are some Somali youth in Minnesotastan, USA, joining the JIHAD in Somalia?

Dozens of young Somali men in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area have disappeared in recent months, causing community members and U.S. intelligence officials to fear that they are joining jihadist groups in Somalia.

Officials are especially concerned that some of the men may be destined to return to the U.S. after they have received terrorist training.

(Bosun's comment: Hmmmmmmmm, wonder if this is a Trojan horse technique to introduce jihad in the United States at a later date?)

The missing young men have been the focus of some attention since late October, when Shirwa Ahmed, a naturalized U.S. citizen, died in a suicide bombing in northern Somalia. Ahmed was a 1999 graduate of Minneapolis's Roosevelt High School.

Immigrating to the United States from another country and wanting to return home to visit friends or family should not be a red flag or cause any concern.

What causes peaceful a Muhammadan to turn into a lunatic fanatic, as the case of Shirwa Ahmed, a graduate of Minneapolis' Roosevelt High School?

Now he is a dead homicide bomber.

How about Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, the 1999 valedictorian at the Islamic Saudi Academy, Northern Virginia, who was convicted of joining Al Qaeda and plotting to assassinate President Bush? Jihadi Ali was a United States Citizen, born in Houston, Texas, and raised mostly in the U.S. His father worked for the Saudi embassy and the family moved to to Jordan for four years.  They returned to Falls Church, Virginia, when Abu Ali was 14 or 15. Jihadi Ali's father worked at the Saudi Embassy in Washington. Now he (Jihadi Ali not his father) is a convicted terrorist.

Let us not forget John Phillip Walker Lindh and Adam Gahdan, two Californians who converted to Islam. What caused them to turn into lunatics?  We should be studying and exploring as to what caused peaceful Muhammadans to metamorphose into radical Muhammadans.  Do they and potentially thousands of others pose a threat to the stability of the United States of America or are these simply isolated incidents not worthy of serious concern?

What causes a peaceful Muhammadan to become a raving Islamist lunatic?
