Somali terror group Al Shabaab has released a new video featuring a footage of Donald Trump’s controversial call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. The video released in English and Arabic by the al-Qaida affiliated terror group on Friday criticizes racism and anti-Muslim sentiment in America and features footage of Republican presisidential candidate Donald Trump announcing a plan to bar Muslims from entering the country.
The video was part of a series dedicated to Somali-American jihadis from Minnesota and one Canadian who died on the battlefield in Somalia.The video was authenticated by the SITE Intelligence Group, which studies jihadi propaganda, and it appeared to be aimed at the African-American community.
Citing “historical injustices” against African-Americans, including police brutality and racial profiling, the video urged them to convert to Islam and engage in jihad at home or abroad. In addition to footage of Mr Trump, the video, which is 51 minutes long, included excerpts from speeches by Malcolm X and unnamed white supremacists, as well as footage of white police officers, African-Americans protesting police brutality and African-American men in prison.
Some appeared to be performing Islamic prayers. Using footage of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American member of a Qaida affiliate who was killed in a US drone attack in 2011, the video also said the United States was gripped by a “malignant hatred” of Islam.
The video also includes footage of Mr Trump in front of a poster with his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again” Source/screenshots: SITE Intelligence Agency
