Islamic State recruiter traveled through Europe ‘like a pop-star on tour’

Omerovic’s “flat was stuffed with jewellery, cash and savings books worth a fortune when it was stormed by Austria’s elite heavily-armed police special forces team WEGA.” Who was financing him?

And the characteristically witless Daily Mail portrays him as having magic powers to “brainwash” people. They don’t explain exactly how he does this, because if they did in any honest manner, it would lead them right back to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

“Islamic hate preacher who recruited ISIS poster girls travelled through Europe ‘like a popstar on tour as he brainwashed teenagers,’” by Gianluca Mezzofiore, Mailonline, February 22, 2016:

An alleged Islamic hate preacher reported to have been the terror mastermind who recruited the Austrian jihad ‘poster girls’ and more than 160 others was travelling Europe ‘like a popstar on tour’, a court heard.

Mirsad Omerovic, 34, known by the Islamic name of ‘Ebu Tejma’, was arrested in November last year at the council flat he shared with his pregnant wife and five children.

Authorities believe Omerovic, originally from Bosnia now on trial in Austria’s southern city of Graz, recruited Samra Kesinovic, 17 and Sabina Selimovic, 16, who became the public face of jihad.

He was also involved in a further 166 defections of European youngsters to fight in holy war.
Tejma’s ‘main message was that Islam needed to be spread to the world through jihad,’ a prosecutor said. He added that Ebu Tejma was travelling through Europe ‘like a popstar on tour’.

Tejma’s ‘main message was that Islam needed to be spread to the world through jihad,’ a prosecutor said. He added that Ebu Tejma was travelling through Europe ‘like a popstar on tour’.

Omerovic [sic] flat was stuffed with jewellery, cash and savings books worth a fortune when it was stormed by Austria’s elite heavily-armed police special forces team WEGA. He had also been spotted driving top-of-the-range sport cars.

Opening his trial in Austria, the prosecutor told the court that Omerovic’s ‘main message was that Islam needed to be spread to the world through jihad.’

He added that Ebu Tejma was travelling through Europe ‘like a popstar on tour’.

And he added that the popstar analogy was particularly appropriate because Omerovic even had his own YouTube channel aimed at young Muslims aged between 14 and their late twenties.

He added it offered ‘to carry out brainwashing on those that viewed it’.

The two Austrian teens became the terror organisation’s latest PR coup when they turned out to be poster girls for the death cult, and featured on ISIS websites carrying AK-47s and surrounded by groups of armed men.

Neither however has been seen for almost a year, with a Tunisian ISIS returnee telling investigators that Samra had been forced to become a sex slave who was offered as a present to new fighters, and that she was later stoned to death when she tried to escape.

With regards to Sabina, a United Nations official revealed a girl ‘of Bosnian origin from Austria’ – believed to be Sabina – had died fighting in Syria.

Both had allegedly become radicalised by Omerovic. When they had left their homes, they left a note for their families which read: ‘Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah and we will die for him.’…

FBI Arrests Lead Islamic State Recruiter in Minnesota

The FBI have arrested a man they said was the ringleader of an Islamic State recruitment cell in Minnesota.

Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, 20, is one of 10 men of Somali origin from Minnesota who have allegedly been plotting to join the Islamic State. Nine were arrested while one made it to Syria. The latter has been there since May 2014 and is believed to be helping recruitment efforts aimed at Americans.

Warsame was allegedly the leader, or emir, of the group.

Last summer, a federal grand-jury investigation followed 20 to 30 Somali-Americans who were believed to be considering joining ISIS in Syria.

Al-Shabaab has also recruited from Minnesota’s Somali community in the past.

CNN investigated the radicalism in Minneapolis-St. Paul last March:

Senior female Islamic State recruiter is student from Seattle

She could still be in the country, and plotting to wage jihad here — or simply still recruiting for the Islamic State. In any case, from the description below, she doesn’t seem to have been suffering from notable poverty or deprivation or oppression. John Kerry, call your office!

“Senior female Isis figure who helped recruit women from Europe to Syria is revealed as student from Seattle,” by Heather Saul, Independent, April 29, 2015:

A senior female Isis figure who reportedly helped recruit women to join the extremist group in areas under its self-declared caliphate has been exposed as a student from Seattle, who may have been living in the city up until March this year.

The person behind the influential @_UmmWaqqas Twitter account has been revealed by Channel 4 as a woman in her 20s who lived and studied in the US.

Her Twitter account had a following of over 8,000 before it was suspended and shows that British recruits, such as Aqsa Mahmood, and other women from Europe were in contact with her in the days running up their departure. Mahmood goes by the name of ‘Umm Layth’ online and tweets from the @_UmmWaqqas account included: “Legit I talk to @ummlayth everyday” and “Umm Layth has more BALLS than most men & more heart/iman to have left her home for Allah’s sake.” She is also reportedly listed as a contact for recruits in a travel document explaining the best methods for reaching territories held by Isis in Syria.

The investigation found her Twitter account was accessed by someone in Seattle as recently as March, but her friends insist that she has since moved away. One told Channel 4 she may have relocated to Saudi Arabia, while another suggested she could be living in Denver, Colorado.

Some of her more extreme tweets justified the brutal killing of a Jordanian pilot and other atrocities committed by the group, including one that read: “I now get why they caged the man & then poured concrete on him… Whenever the muslims are bombed in their homes they have nowhere to run.”

However, her social media accounts also presented a passion for American football, the Super Bowl, eating takeout food with her friends and going to the gym, while photographs of her day-to-day life were found to show locations in and around Seattle….
