Al-Shabaab Wants to Help Hillary Clinton

I don’t see how else this could be interpreted, except perhaps Hillary had some kind of advance intelligence about this, but I rather doubt that. Newsweek:

The Somali al Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabaab released a new recruitment video online on Friday featuring inflammatory sound bites from 2016 Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

Clocking in at nearly 52 minutes, the propaganda-heavy video features footage of Trump’s controversial comments about Muslims—including his desire to create a database for all Muslims living in America and establishing a surveillance system for mosques. The video has been making the rounds on online channels run by the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), as CBS News first reported.

In the wake of the San Bernardino shootings, Trump said that as president he would institute “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”

Anwar al-Awlaki, who died in 2011 and was the first United States citizen targeted and killed by a U.S. drone strike, also appears in the video, waxing on America’s fraught racial history. In the clip, al-Awlaki pleads for “Muslims of the West” to stay alert. “Yesterday, America was a land of slavery, segregation, lynching, and Ku Klux Klan,” he says. “And tomorrow it will be a land of religious discrimination and concentration camps.”

Following Trump’s comments, the video cuts back to al-Awlaki, who says: “The West will eventually turn away from its Muslim citizens.”

The video was released shortly after Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s comments in the most recent Democratic debate, suggesting that Trump’s incendiary remarks about Muslims could and would be used to recruit jihadis in the future.

So, if they want to hurt Trump, they splice his comments in, how hard is that?

  1. I believe Hillary is also featured in videos for jihadi recruitment. I am sure young readers addicted to the Koran would be more likely to join ISIS or al Qaeda to defeat any nation so effete as to elect an old woman as its leader. Her husband Bill, if he were the candidate, might be somewhat more problematic though. He already acts like a faithful Mohammedan when it comes to women. He would command the respect of Koran addicts.
