Newly arrived Somali immigrants have transformed small towns and cities throughout the United States into tuulas (Somali villages).

The process is underway in such places as Lewiston, Maine; Shelbyville, Tennessee, St. Cloud, Minnesota, Clarkston,Georgia, and Jamestown, North Dakota.

The Jamestown Sun reports that 400 Somalis have applied for public housing in the past four months.

The Somali immigrants in Garden City, Kansas and nearby small towns have created the Somali Community Center of Southwest Kansas in order to tap into public welfare programs. Within this section of the heartland, white Christians have become the minority.

In East San Diego, the newly arrived Somalis have created a Little Mogadishu. The streets are lined with Somali stores, shops, and mosques. In the midst of this ethnic enclave stands the Iftin Charter School, where K-8 students are introduced to Arabic. 99% of the student population is Somali; Arabs constitute the remaining 1%.

The American Somalis now display the highest unemployment and poverty rates in the country. They also remain the least educated. According to Andrew Liepman, the deputy director of intelligence at the National Counterterrorism Center, Somali-Americans face “greater insularity compared to other, more integrated Muslim immigrant communities, [which] has aggravated the challenge of assimilation for their children.”

This problem is crystallized by the present situation is Lewiston, Maine, where African Muslims, many from the Bantu tribe, began arriving in 2001 at the rate of 100 a month.

Mohammed Maye, the president of the African Community and Refugee Center in Clarkston, Georgia posted a map of Lewiston on the wall of his office. “Go to Maine,” he advised the Somali immigrants. Abdullahi Abdullahi, the president of the Somali Community Development Organization in Clarkston, upheld this advice by telling his fellow countrymen that, unlike Georgia, Maine has terribly cold winters, but “the welfare system is better.”

Lewiston, indeed, was better. The small town in Maine with a population of 30,000 provided welfare to anyone in need, with the state picking up half the tab. Recipients, including the Muslim refugees, were allowed a generous five years of assistance before their benefits became terminated, and extensions for several additional years on the public dole were not difficult to obtain. Single parents could stay on welfare and go to college.

Public housing was also available, although, with the influx of Somalis, the housing projects became packed to capacity. Many of the new project dwellers were single Somali mothers with large broods of children. Those who are unable to obtain public housing were handed Section 8 vouchers, which the federal government provided to subsidize their rent in private apartments. The northern city with its frigid climate became welfare heaven for the arrivals from the vast desert areas of northern Africa.

The newcomers have shown scant interest in securing employment. When Renee Bernier, the president of the Lewiston city council, offered to hire 30 Somalis at the rate of $8 to $10 an hour to hold warning signs at construction sites, few displayed interest. The handful, who did apply, said that they were only willing to work between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The Somali population of Lewiston now exceeds 4,000.

    This is all part and parcel of the “Ikhwan Charter” is it not?
    This was to be expected and this is partly why Obama has the DOJ fighting the immingration laws in Arizona. If Arizona wins the rights to prevent illegals from entering the U.S. then Obama will not be able to fulfill his “dream of his father” and his destiny of creating an Islamic state in the U.S.

    I watched an interesting video today on Facebook, sent in by one of my friends, that explained how Jesus, “Yehoshua”, prophesied who the anti-Christ, “Satan” would be. It is found in Luke 10:18 and it breaks down the name of Barak Obama. Baraq, in Aramaic, means lightning, and Obama, “U-BamMaw” means heavenly place. “And behold I saw Satan falling from the heavens as lightning.”
    Isn’t that a strange coincidence?
    Also of note; the name Hussein, in Aramaic and Arabic means “person of influence and power” and “handsome”.
    Take this for what you will, but I think the tribulation is near, and Barak Hussein Obama is going to be in power long enough to be the new leader of the world under the tyrannical yoke of Islamic Caliphate.
    Even if he is voted out of U.S. office he could still become a world leader through the UN. Watch my predictions to see if they unfold.

  5. Those mothers are probably not single. In Europe many more of these single mothers are in a multiple wives family. Polygamy. And you forgot to mention khat. More than ½ of the Somalis in Europe are drug addicts on khat. After a few years on khat they are also invalids. Khat will do that to the user sooner or later.

  6. There must be a typo in this post. According to Wiki Lewiston has less than 40.000 inhabitants in all. So it can’t have 40.000 Somalis:,_Maine

    WOW, and your Americans are worried about Mexician immigration. Sounds like we should all be worried about turning this country into an islamic welfare state. This is why Arizona must win against Obama pushing back on the immigration reform. Arizona needs to set the example.

    Somali Pirates Business Plan
    Last week, a group of investigators dispatched by the Security Council to Somalia released an exhaustive, 100 plus page report on arms trafficking, aid diversion, and other criminal activities in Somalia. So far, much of the press around the report has focused on allegations that World Food Program aid had been diverted to suspected militants. The report also provides evidence that Eritrea has been supporting Somali militants, raising the prospect that Eritrea will once again come under international condemnation.

    I’ll have much more to write about this report soon. In the meantime, I found this short explanation of the pirates’ business model, tucked away in the report’s annex, to be fascinating.

    A basic piracy operation requires a minimum eight to twelve militia prepared to stay at sea for extended periods of time, in the hopes of hijacking a passing vessel. Each team requires a minimum of two attack skiffs, weapons, equipment, provisions, fuel and preferably a supply boat. The costs of the operation are usually borne by investors, some of whom may also be pirates.

    To be eligible for employment as a pirate, a volunteer should already possess a firearm for use in the operation. For this ‘contribution’, he receives a ‘class A’ share of any profit. Pirates who provide a skiff or a heavier firearm, like an RPG or a general purpose machine gun, may be entitled to an additional A-share. The first pirate to board a vessel may also be entitled to an extra A-share.

    At least 12 other volunteers are recruited as militiamen to provide protection on land of a ship is hijacked, In addition, each member of the pirate team may bring a partner or relative to be part of this land-based force. Militiamen must possess their own weapon, and receive a ‘class B’ share — usually a fixed amount equivalent to approximately US$15,000.

    If a ship is successfully hijacked and brought to anchor, the pirates and the militiamen require food, drink, qaad, fresh clothes, cell phones, air time, etc. The captured crew must also be cared for. In most cases, these services are provided by one or more suppliers, who advance the costs in anticipation of reimbursement, with a significant margin of profit, when ransom is eventually paid.

    When ransom is received, fixed costs are the first to be paid out. These are typically:

    • Reimbursement of supplier(s)

    • Financier(s) and/or investor(s): 30% of the ransom

    • Local elders: 5 to 10 %of the ransom (anchoring rights)

    • Class B shares (approx. $15,000 each): militiamen, interpreters etc.

    The remaining sum — the profit — is divided between class-A shareholders.

    Wonder if they teach that at Wharton?

    Lets see we let in a bunch of refugees who have no skills or education give them public housing and food stamps? Not to mention in almost all these towns mentioned is a Gulen Charter School. Hmmm sounds fair to me. Islam gets free housing the Gov. Subsidises it and an Imem gets more money. The white kids get pushed out of those schools and the tax payers spring for it. Sounds good to me. NOT!

    Yeah, that 40,000 must be a type-o. I live in Lewiston. At last count, I thought we had 3,000+ Somalis. But, maybe it’s 4,000+ and someone added an extra zero by mistake. Really need to correct that, so as not to give ammunition to the other side, because the problem, even with 4,000, is still worse than the above article states. That article isn’t even the tip of the iceberg.

  13. Thanks for pointing out the typo.

    God bless

    Wow… And we worry about illegal Mexicans? Somalians are a very aggresive and violent culture., and this needs to be stopped. Is there a way to get any petitioning started to keep this trash out of our country? Or is Obama hand picking them himself? All these people that think this is okay and support this will have a rude awakening. No wonder other countries are laughing at us. We need to be more like Australia and outlaw Sharia Law practices and quit being suck a p*ssy of a country. And isn`t it funny how they can build their little warlike zones here? But what about an American`s right to bear arms? This is some f*cked up sh*t for real.
