Transcript of Jacob Wohl/Laura Loomer Periscope
February 24, 2019
For some reason Periscope cut out on us.
Yeah, should we just pick up where we
left off, because everybody always just
Watch the previous Periscope before and
You can get the update but essentially
We were talking about
Ilhan Omar and how we're here on the
ground in Minnesota, but Ilhan tonight is
in Tampa, Florida speaking at the
fundraiser for the Islamic Relief, which
has been designated as a terrorist
organization, they had their accounts
shut down by HSBC because of terror
financing and she was speaking side by
side next to one of the officials for
the Islamic Relief, the largest Islamic
charity in America, who has called for
the killing of Jews and posted threats
about Jews, so you know this woman is not sorry for being a Jew-hater.
You know one of the things that I -- that
I learned today
is I went into the community and I was
interviewing human sources that had
inside knowledge about Ilhan Omar's sham
marriage, and actually people from the
community that were legally here, of,
they're actual refugees from Ethiopia who
were Christians, were thanking me, were
actually walking up and thanking me on
camera for pursuing this against Ilhan
Omar, and so you know that's one of the
things that struck me about about this
operation is that there's people within
her district that are bullied by these
Somali thugs, and we saw them firsthand.
You know later in the day Laura, you, you
visited a mosque. You visited a mosque
and tell everyone what happened when you
visited the mosque and and how welcoming
and diverse and just how inclusive
these people were.
Yeah so it's actually
kind of funny how this whole thing
played out and I laugh about it because
I just can't believe this is happening
here in America, but believe it or not I
went to one of the Islamic centers here
on the ground today, and you know we're,
we are continuing the investigation you
know I told you seven months ago when I
was here on the ground that Ilhan had
ties to terrorist organizations and
individuals who are radicalized, right?
She wrote a letter advocating for
decreased sentences for
individual Somali men in the
community here who tried to join ISIS.
And there was a report that recently
came out that showed that Minneapolis,
Minnesota is now the terrorist
recruitment center in the United States
of America, and more Somali men according
to the FBI, have tried to join ISIS
overseas from Minnesota than any other
place in the country. And so I thought, wow,
where are these, you know, Somali Muslim
men learning, these, or becoming
radicalized so that they want to join
ISIS, what is happening? And I thought
what better way than to go ask, you know,
a local Imam, or you know a director of
an Islamic Center, and so that's what I
did and I I went to the Al-Farooq
Islamic Center in Minneapolis and
I was very nice and I thought that I was
very respectful and it was very non-
confrontational, and I simply walked in
and I just asked if I could speak with
the director because I was interested in
knowing what the director of this
majority Somali Islamic center was doing. Well these places are minting,
you know, terrorists, quicker than the
U.S. Mint mints coins.
Right, so let me tell you
what happened. So then I walk in and I
say hi can I please speak to Mohamed
Omar. Mohamed Omar is the name, was the
director of the Islamic Center, the Al-
Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington.
And what happened was the guy who was
there was very aggressive, right? He was
very standoffish, he was not very
friendly to me one bit whatsoever,
he just started raising his voice.
You walked up nicely.
I walked up nicely.
I said hi my name's Laura Loomer, I'm an
investigative journalist, I was just
wondering if I could speak to Mohamed
Omar, the director of this Islamic
center, I have a couple questions, I'm
doing a report on
Ilhan Omar and the rise of
Islamic Jihad here in Minnesota, and he
refused to shake my hand. And he said I
don't shake hands with women. And this is
all on video, you'll be able to see it,
but he did say that, he said I don't
shake hands with women, and then he
became very very aggressive. Um, I tried, um,
you know explaining why I was there,
he was being very disrespectful to the
guy who was filming, being very
dismissive of me because I
was a woman, I think also because I wear
Judaic jewelry, I have a Chai (ring), and
I also had a necklace on earlier today
that matches this, he was very hostile
and then a woman wearing a burka walked
in, and she asked what we were doing
there, and I explained oh you know I'm a
journalist I'm here to do a report, I was
hoping I could set up an appointment or
speak with Mohammed Omar. And she said
yeah sure just leave your information. So
I tried to leave my email address for
them, and then this guy gets on the
the phone, this Somali man, and he
starts speaking, I guess he was speaking
Arabic or something, and he became very
confrontational, and I guess they
called the police,
because I was actually --
So you got the heck out of there because you
don't know if there's gonna be an
awesome Minneapolis PD officer there
shows up and we've dealt with a lot of
them, or whether it's gonna be somebody
So you got out of there.
Well I mean I left too, when they asked me to leave I was just like I said I was
simply just trying to set up an
appointment it was not confrontational.
But then he started to become very
aggressive and walk towards me and
started putting his hands and you know
his pocket area and the guy who was
filming became very uncomfortable and
feared for his safety
and so we left and I said all right well
just um you know here's my email address
And so - and while this is going on Laura's
with the security guy, a camera guy, and
everyone else, while that's going on I'm on
the other side of town in little
Mogadishu, and what do we find, none other
than ISIS propaganda everywhere. These
people have the walls painted with ISIS
flags, and they're trying to raise a
miniature Caliphate in Minneapolis.
That's why I called it Minneapolistan.
Most of the city is pretty nice, but you have
these areas that are completely taken
over, and it's unbelievable.
And so then what ended up happening right is they were acting -- the Somali man lied, he
told the police that they that we were
there for an hour, obviously we weren't,
we filmed the entire
thing, and the police officers here
are really nice, they told us yes, we're really
aware that this is a you know, Jihadi-
type mosque, we're aware of the numbers
we know we know that you know the guy
wasn't telling the truth because he
wasn't, we have it all on camera and we
were there for five minutes, and he
became very aggressive and really was
being hateful towards me because I'm a
woman, he expressed that, and I think also
because I'm Jewish. And so then the
police were talking to us, and ultimately--
There was no incident--
There was no incident whatsoever, it's just the Islamic Center decided they wanted to make a show out of it and so they
essentially trespassed me, simply because I wanted to ask a question. It's all on video, you can see it.
It's all on video, you're gonna see it soon. I was downtown, actually, just south of downtown in the Somali housing projects
basically collecting information about
Ilhan Omar's sham marriage, and, you know,
like I said, there were people there in
the community that were very nice. We had
lunch at a Somali restaurant, and the
waiter happened to be a Trump supporter.
Was a big fan of what we were doing, we
got him on camera and interviewed him.
He was a Somali, right?
Yeah, young guy, must have been 16, 17 years old. Loves President Trump. So it's not all bad, but what you have is you have these cells
that are inculcated within the
community that are determined to destroy America, determined to launch jihad.
So then what happened next is Laura says to us you know, very, in a very banal way, I'd like to take you guys to a mall. Let's go check out a mall, you gotta see it, you just have to see with your own eyes.
And I said ah, what do we need to go to a
mall for, but we shlepped over to the mall in our convoy.
The reason why I said they
gotta go to a mall is because they didn't believe me that there were entire
shopping centers in Minneapolis--
Which are taken over.
Like you can walk in and there's not a single white person, there's not a single person that's not wearing Muslim garb.
So she took us into this place, and I say where is the mall, I see a couple of run-down buildings here.
It's called Karmel Mall, just in case you--
I tweeted out a picture.
By the way everyone, go to retweet, I see we have 500 viewers, if all of you retweet, this will go viral, it will get trending so go and retweet.
So OK. So we go into this mall and I say
where the hell is a mall, this looks like something in Mogadishu, it was a rundown
There was I think I saw a few women but they were the exception. Most
of the women who were there were wearing full burkas slit on the eyes. And some of them even had mesh over the eyes.
Minnesota, you guys. We're in Minnesota and this is happening. And the entire mall if you look on Jacob's - I'm gonna post the picture on my Instagram.
Instagram you can follow me on instagram
You can follow me on Instagram, instagram.com/loomer. You will see it says "Karmel Mall, a Somali mall."
It doesn't say "an American mall" or "everyone is welcome here," it says"a Somali mall."
And so when we walked inside, you know, there were -- most of the shops were selling like,
Islamic texts and you know like burkas, and
Some rugs and burkas.
Rugs, and a lot of prayer rugs, and a lot of
women were selling like--
Little trinkets, and knickknacks
And like hijabs and burkas, and so then I was just, you know, just walking around inside Karmel Mall,
mall and I was looking at some of the
And I was looking at some of the books. And I saw this table that said
"Islamic Teachings for Children," and so I just --
you know it sparked my curiosity,
and I was like hmm, what are they teaching
little kids, and so I went over there and
I started flipping through books, and
just flipping through random pages, and
then I started like going through the
bookshelves and seeing what I could find
and I just I I told one of the guys who
is filming I said, "You know I'd be really
interesting to see like randomly, if we started flipping through some pages, what
we would see we just flipped to a random page.
And so that's what I did, and one of the books, whoops knocked the table a little, one of the books that um I
found, well, I was looking in the um, you know Islamic children's book section
"An Approach to Islamic Education First Level," you can see here,
Hold that up closer to the camera so that everyone can see.
That's one of the books, I ended up
buying the book because I thought that if I told you guys this, you may not
believe it unless you saw it.
But by the way, way thanks to you guys donating at jihadIlhan.com (https://culttture.com/omarinvestigation/) we have the funds to do all this, I might add, and keep donating and double up if you can, we're not done with this yet.
And so then I was looking through the book and I was like, alright, this is interesting, and the book that
was laying right next to the "Approach to the Islamic Education First Level" was
"Lawful Earnings." "Daroo(f) Islam Research Section." So --
Let's cut to the chase, what does the book say?
Essentially, you know, you you flip through the pages, and the page that I flipped to, here, you can see for your self, we're flipping to page 56 and it says--
"May Allah curse the Jews." So this is a book that's being sold in one of these Somali malls in Minnesota, we're not in Somalia, right? It feels like we're in Somalia.
right it feels like we're in somali yeah
It truly honestly does when I walk down
the street and I'm the only woman who gets eyeballed because I'm not wearing a niqab or a burka.
niqab or a burqa but we are in the
But we are in the Midwest, we are in Minnesota, and it's
really crazy to me that in a child's book section--
One of our camera guys took a wrong turn, he was walking through getting b-roll,
getting footage, he took a wrong turn and
he got basically ambushed by two goons
who said "You got to get out of here."
Gave him no reason at all. Snatched the phone out of his hand. Deleted footage off of his phone and basically kicked him out of there.
He had to walk into a Walgreens just to shake him and get back to this -- one of our security guys who was waiting in the
I mean this is unbelievable that Americans cannot walk through a
so-called shopping mall in the United States if they have white skin, if
they're not wearing Islamic garb--
And this is what's happening in Minnesota.
And it's really interesting too and then after a while, you know, I was scrolling
through a lot of these books and the
guy came up to me, and he goes, "Excuse me miss, are you a Muslim or are you interested in becoming a Muslim?"
And I said, "oh no I'm just looking." And you know I didn't feel uncomfortable, it
doesn't really -- I don't really get scared easily, um you know, but I
understand if other people are
uncomfortable and I guess it made some
of the people in the group a little bit uncomfortable to have that many eyes on
them. But I was just very interested in
how -- you know it's very sad, you think of
a first grader, how old are first graders, like five, six years old?
Five, six years old, and they get started on this crap.
Five, six years old when they
get started getting you know, "An Approach to Islamic Education, First Level," curse the Jews, may Allah curse the Jews, so--
this is not -- we're not living in Gaza,
right? We're not living in Somalia.
This is not Saudi Arabia. We are not in the
Middle East, we are not in Africa right?
Let me ask you a question Laura. How would you like to get into an Uber down
by that mall?
How do you think that would go for you?
Well I'll tell you one thing.
Well I can't, I'm banned, so.
You're banned. But I tell you what, I wouldn't want my little sisters getting in an Uber down on that side of town.
Believe me, and you wouldn't want
your daughters or sisters or wives doing it either, and it's just, it's really unbelievable.
The hope here is that there are members of the community, like I said, we had lunch at a Somali restaurant though the waiter was a big-time Trump supporter, we interviewed him,
he loves what we're doing to try to
expose the radical elements within the community.
I don't want anyone thinking
that we're making this up so I'm just gonna go very close and you can take a screenshot of this, and you can see for yourself on page 56 it clearly says "May
Allah curse the Jews."
So you see that guys? Do you see that? You're reading that here in Arabic. This is being sold here in the Somali mall, it says "may Allah curse the Jews."
Right. Right. And it's frankly it's unbelievable.
And I at this same time, at this same time, we have people
threatening us, people trying to expose
our location, we had to move locations,
because people you know basically tried
to dox us and tried to say go and harm
these people. We had people threaten to
behead us. You name it, we had to go to the police station tonight and make a
and you're gonna get an update on that later, I don't want to get too much into it but they were very helpful, they
were very professional, I'm very happy
with Minneapolis PD, it was great
everyone go and retweet, donate at jihadilhan.com. The other thing that I did
today is I went to the State Capitol.
I had to go to the State Capitol, we stopped over there, there was a big-time
pro-gun rally going on, that whole place
was filled up to the rafters and
immediately people recognized me,
they said Jacob thank you for what
you're doing, I don't want to be on camera, I'm afraid of the radical elements in my
own community but thank you for what
And so what we did is we went into the event, I basically walked up to a state senator there, a Republican
state senator, and said
"What do you think
that at the same time that they're bringing in all of these radical elements and turning your city into the number one ISIS recruitment center in the United States, they're trying to take your guns away?
And so I had a really
good couple of questions with him that you're gonna see coming soon. And like I
said, tonight, Ilhan Omar is next to
somebody who called for the
extermination of the Jews and she's speaking alongside him and we've got
activists down there as well.
I think too you guys, you may want to contact the Hilton in in Tampa where this event was being held
because I got this on video today, I called the Hilton which was hosting this event apparently, according to the Islamic Relief invite where Ilhan
was speaking this jihadi fundraiser, and
I asked the Hilton I said "Excuse me,
um, you know, why are you guys hosting a
terrorist fundraiser for an organization
that had its account shut down because
they were financing terrorism and why
are you you hosting these jihadists who
have called for the killing of Jews and
Christians and are very anti-American in
our advocating on behalf of ISIS?"
And it sounded like they were instructed to pretend like they didn't know what we
were talking about, because I asked to
speak to a manager or be connected to
somebody you know in the in executive
branch and um, you know I was told,
"I don't know what you're talking about," and they hung up. So you know we need to hold these people accountable and tell them, and let them know.
These people can run but they can't hide.
Wherever they are, we are, because
you've donated to jihadilhan.com, you've put the capital behind us
and youcontinue to put the capital behind us which is really what we need along with prayers, and they can try to chase us out of their jihadist recruitment centers
and they can chase us out of their shopping malls and they can try to browbeat us and they can try to threaten
us and dox us and do whatever they want,
but the bottom line is we're on the right side of history here, we're doing
the right thing
and you know if you look around and
you're on the same side as the people
who are recruiting ISIS members and
you're on the same side as the people
who are throwing Molotov cocktails at
conservatives and staging fake hate
crimes you're probably on the wrong side.
You're probably on the wrong side.
It's insanity. I can't help but laugh at the insanity because this is happening in America,
right? This is happening in America where
you could be in Minneapolis and then you
could just go down the street to the
Somali mall, they actually have Somali
malls now, and you can pick up a book
that calls for cursing the Jews, killing
the Jews, and it's like this is insanity,
why is this happening in America, I mean
who allowed for this to happen? Oh yeah
that's right thanks a lot Obama, you know,
thanks a lot Obama because when you look at these policies right a lot of this
happened under the Obama administration
and for those of you who live in
Minnesota, you know you know I tried to
warn you all about this when I came here,
and I was reporting on Keith Ellison who
is now the Attorney General, you know,
Keith Ellison is trying to challenge
President Trump's immigration policies
by suing the Administration so that they
can import another 110,000 Somali
refugees. How do you think that's gonna
happen, you know? What do you think that's
gonna do to Minnesota? Go read my
article today and I have all the facts there, all the statistics listed for you, all right? It's voter fraud.
You're gonna see a lot of voter fraud. And you should be very concerned going into the 2020 election.
They're so deadlocked on
this that they're willing to vote twice
to do it they're so deadlocked on it
that they're willing to triple and
quadruple their crime rates in their
cities to do it. It's unbelievable so
retweet this (broad)cast, get it out
there, we're going to put a stop to
this stuff, and we're going to put a stop
to this ISIS propaganda and ISIS
graffiti on the streets all over the
place, it's unbelievable it's not
happening in my country, and I'm not
going to allow a Congresswoman to
facilitate all this while cursing the Jews, while telling us
that you know, we can't have our culture
and telling us that we need to
take another hundred and ten thousand
refugees and we need to stop supporting
Israel and basically dump two hundred
years of American heritage, American
history, American foreign policy and by
the way, receive classified briefings on
the House Foreign Affairs Committee while she does it. It's just not gonna happen.
It's just really out of control, you know?
And another thing too that I was going to write about today is you know, Ilhan Omar is also going to be speaking
to CAIR as one of their keynote speakers
in March, I believe March 23rd, or
March 23rd I think it is, in California, and one of the guys who she's going to be
speaking next to who's invited is a guy
who works for CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations,
another designated Islamic terrorist organization and United Arab
and this guy named Hassan Shipley, who's the director of CAIR Florida, is currently, you know helping out this ISIS bride
this ISIS bride that's trying to come in. Hold on a sec.
And this ISIS bride is getting
representation and guidance from members of CAIR, and so why is Ilhan Omar going to be speaking and delivering a keynote, one, for an Islamic terrorist
organization that you know was found to
be supporting Hamas, another Islamic
terrorist organization that outlines in
its charter its mission to kill Jews, and
secondly why is she trying to give a
keynote speech next to a guy who's
trying to help an ISIS bride. I mean
sorry, if you go overseas to help fight
for ISIS and kill Americans--
And she wasn't an American--
You are not welcome here.
She wasn't an American.
Bye-bye, enjoy your refugee camp, enjoy your ISIS husband
Enjoy Guantanamo Bay, in a perfect world, yeah exactly
and give you welfare so that we
can you know take care of you and the
spawn of a terrorist. I'm sorry, you know, goodbye.
Exactly, you know, and by the way she's not a U.S. citizen, she's not a U.S. resident, she's a foreign national,
foreign to Yemenis diplomats, who happens to be in a refugee camp.
She doesn't have any right to representation in the United States. So CAIR is just providing material support--
They're providing lobbying services. They're providing unlicensed, unregistered lobbying services to an ISIS bride.
Exactly. And that's what they did for Omar Mateen's wife. Remember Omar Mateen, the ISIS terrorist, he killed 49
people in Orlando.
The San Bernardino shooter's family, same thing.
He killed 49 people in Orlando. And CAIR, of course, because you know CAIR, essentially that's what they do, they love helping terrorists, CAIR rushed to the defense of Noor Salman,
and they were on the ground at the hearings, you know, trying
to help this woman and the jury foreman
even though they found the woman not
guilty they said that she was guilty and
the only reason they didn't find this
woman guilty is because the FBI withheld
evidence. They withheld the fact that
Omar Mateen's father was an FBI
informant who told the FBI that his son
was no longer radicalized. So just let
that sink in, you know the jury foreman
said that this woman, the wife of this
ISIS terrorist was guilty. They had
to say she was not guilty because the FBI
you know screwed everything up.
And then CAIR, knowing that this
woman is guilty, is rushing to her
defense all right. And these people you
know the Council on American-Islamic Relations,
guess where their main office is, in Washington DC. Take a guess. One block away from the White House, all right.
So the infiltrators are here, all right? The subversion is already here.
So wake up you guys, wake up.
And what you have to do, you need lightning teams like we have, you need activists like us to get on the ground, to make things happen,
to go into dangerous neighborhoods in
Somali housing projects to interview sources and put them on the record, and
put the screws to these people to get
the information. And that's what we're
doing. The only way we can do it is with your funding.
You have to go to jihadilhan.com,
the link is in my twitter bio, and you have to stay tuned for what we have coming next,
because if you think
you've seen something so far, these are
just the update periscopes.
Wait until you see the video. It's
Right. And if you want to see my article today which outlines the
evidence that Ilhan Omar and Keith Ellison are advocating for voter fraud
and aiding the Somali community in these efforts, go to LauraLoomer.us. I am currently banned on Twitter
ironically right? Because CAIR came out
in the Wall Street Journal, CAIR was
lobbying with Twitter to ban me. So
Twitter is actually working with a
designated Islamic terrorist
organization, you know, and
co-conspirators as outlined to the Holy
Land Foundation terrorism trial to ban
Jewish conservative journalists. So you've got to subscribe, LauraLoomer.us,
you get my emails, you can follow me you know on my website and read the articles in the post.
The FBI is not going to do this work, they're too busy chasing down phony Russian collusion. They're too busy covering this stuff up, you know?
They're too busy covering up the fact that the family members of the ISIS terrorists are actually on the FBI payroll, right? FBI informants.
Informants, right? The FBi is compromised.
So go to jihadilhan.com, donate to the cause, send us your prayers, send us
your money, and we will get started.
Thank you for your support. We're continuing the fight and we're not going to back down.
