The San Diego motto is Semper Vigilans and it certainly needs to be vigilant considering that it seems to be turning into an ISIS hub.
San Diego has captured the spotlight this week when it comes to homegrown terrorism allegations.
On Sunday, two Somali men were arrested here and four others in Minneapolis in what federal officials billed as the Islamic State’s biggest recruitment plot yet. Abdirahman Yasin Daud and Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, both 21, are accused of traveling to San Diego to get fake passports, then cross into Mexico and travel to Syria from there, according to the complaint. Court proceedings are set for next week to return them to Minnesota for prosecution.
Last year, former City College student Douglas McAuthur McCain of Spring Valley joined the Islamic State and became the first American believed to have died in combat in the conflict in Syria. The 33-year-old had converted to Islam and his ideology became radicalized, his social media postings showed.
Another San Diegan, Jehad Mostafa, is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list because he is believed to be working in Somalia for al-Shabab, another radical Islamic terrorist group.
The current star though is Mohamad Saeed Kodaimati. Mo was naturalized along with his father back in 2001. And he repaid the country that took him in the popular way among so many younger Muslim settlers in the West.
Others images released by the Justice Department this week depict a heavily bearded Saeed brandishing powerful assault rifles, a faint smile on his lips.
In online chats and posts, Saeed allegedly bragged about working for a sharia court, openly expressed his support for ISIS and claimed he had fought in a gun battle that lasted four months, reported Los Angeles Times.
‘I am currently the media person for the Shari’ah Authority,’ Saeed is alleged to have boasted to a friend online.
In a September 2013 Facebook email to a friend, he wrote he was working for the Sharia Authority at Hanano, describing the official body as “a government in the liberated area — being set up upon the Islamic religion — and governed by the Quran,” according to the complaint.
So why did he ever leave to return to San Diego, still run by infidels?
