As Shoebat.com reported yesterday that “the attack in Garland Texas was carried out by ISIS lone wolves” and today the police revealed “Elton Simpson,” reportedly one of the two gunmen responsible for the shooting in Garland, Texas, was indeed a homegrown ISIS lone wolf and a convert to Islam who in 2010 had links to ISIS.
Simpson and his unidentified friend received their orders from an Islamic al-Shabaab terrorist from Minnesota, named, Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan. It is said that in April 23 Hassan called for violence against the anti-Muhammad event in Texas. He was absolutely devoted to the cause of ISIS, and even encouraged the recruitment of Americans into ISIS, and pushed for Muslims in America to slaughter people within the US.
Last year, Shoebat.com had warned in the ISIS Manifesto that ISIS had planed revenge attacks in the US and the group Simpson was linked to had called Muslims to destroy all of Texas. Simpson who received his orders from Hassan answers the call.
Simpson, who was identified as an American Muslim, was indicted in January 2010 for making false statements to FBI agents. They claimed Simpson said he did not have plans to travel to Somalia despite an FBI informant recording a conversation indicating otherwise. The indictment also charged that the statement involved international and domestic terrorism, “for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad.”
The FBI’s criminal investigation into Simpson began in 2006 in Phoenix, because at the time he was associating with someone the FBI believed was attempting to set up a terrorist cell in Arizona.
An FBI informant, Daba Deng, who is from Kenya and attended the same mosque as Simpson, befriended him in 2006. At the time, Deng told Simpson he was new to Islam and wanted to learn more. He began meeting with Simpson three to four times a week and recorded their conversations.
Simpson was let go. “The possibility that the defendant did in fact intend to go to Somalia to engage in violent jihad exists, as the defendant never presented an alternative reason for going there. However, that is not the defendant’s burden and as stated, the Government has not established beyond a reasonable doubt that the Defendant had such intentions,” the court found.
Minutes before the deadly attack, a Twitter account that may have belonged to Simpson used the hashtag #texasattack to make a preemptive announcement. Simpson tweeted under the title Sharia Is Light prior to the shooting this message:
Shoebat.com, yesterday, found it easy to recognize from the lingo “bro” and the Arabic written in English “Amirul Mu’minin” which meant “Prince of the Faithful” which can only be interpreted as the current Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi of ISIS. This would mean, as we reported, that the two are lone wolves and are homegrown American Muslim terrorists, who gave allegiance to ISIS.
After the attack, the “AbuHussainAlBritani” account began tweeting praise of the Texas shooting, and linked the attack to ISIS.
Hassan is wanted by the FBI and is on an FBI photo list alongside other Somali terrorists, as we can see from this snapshot:
Hassan went by the alias, “Mujahid Miski,” and last year he praised the 9/11 attack on Twitter. Commenting on one photo of the Twin Towers being devastated, Hassan wrote:
What a beautiful sight to look at… This is heart cooling for the Believers.
On a photo of a soldier holding a U.S. flag, captioned, “Never Forget Sept. 11, 2001,” Miski callously wrote, “God willing you’ll have more of them to remember soon.”
Hassan is associated with ISIS, in that he was found to be encouraging ISIS recruitment. In December of last year it was reported that while Hassas was believed to be currently fighting for the terrorist group Al-Shabaab, he changed his online location status to Baghdad, Iraq. He also praised American Muslim, Abu Yusef, for leaving Minnesota to fight for ISIS.
Yusef fought for ISIS only to be killed in battle in the area of Kobane in northern Syria. Hassan praised his death.
Last year, Shoebat.com reported of how an ISIS propaganda trading group posted these disturbing words on Twitter:
the US-Mexican border is now open large numbers of people crossing
The Texas law department found a message on Twitter from ISIS, saying
Americans in for ruin (sic).
ISIS wants to cross into the United States through the US-Mexican border. The Texas Department of Public Safety has given this warning:
A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack … Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations, or they have sought to raise awareness that illegal entry through Mexico is a viable option … The identities of persons operating these accounts cannot be independently verified; however the accounts were selected for monitoring based on several indications that they have been used by actual ISIS militants for propaganda purposes and collectively reach tens of thousands of followers… One account was verified as belonging to an individual located in Mosul, Iraq.
Judicial Watch has made this statement:
Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat
According to the Texas law department, some 32 Facebook and Twitter posts by jihadists have been found expressing interest in the US-Mexican border, with even “calls for border infiltration”. ISIS knows that there are a large amount of people crossing into American through Mexico, and plans on using this to their advantage. As the Texas law department reports:
This Twitter account holder, who is the administrator of an ISIS propaganda trading group, stated that the time was right for such an action because “the US-Mexican border is now open large numbers of people crossing”
It appears that now ISIS is already in Texas, and lone agents, who are already born within the US but recruited ideologically, are acting as acolytes for the Islamic State. The Muslim terrorists are now using the rap ghetto culture to their advantage, since the people in America who want to be “thugs” and emulate ghetto trash, already harbor hatred for the police and America, and are ready for the picking to be used for violence.
On Monday morning, FBI agents and investigators could be seen cordoning off and searching the apartment, as well as a white van believed to belong to Simpson. Investigators are also reviewing computer records from materials found at the home.
