American-Somali Al-Qaeda Member Releases Rap Recruit Song (Audio)
American terrorist in Somalia Abu Mansur al-Amriki released a couple rap songs this past week to recruit young jihadists.
The AP reported:
An American from Alabama who joined Somalia’s most dangerous militant group has released two new rap songs on the Internet, a possible indication that he is still alive after rumors circulated of his death during heavy fighting in Mogadishu.
Omar Hammami, who grew up in the middle-class town of Daphne, Alabama, joined the al-Qaida-linked Somali militants in 2007 while he was in his early 20s, becoming the most high-profile American member of al-Shabab. He took the nom de guerre of Abu Mansur al-Amriki, or “the American.”
A jihadist website posted two songs over the weekend in which Hammami raps that he wants to die a martyr. He cites previous militant leaders killed by U.S. military action like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the former leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, and Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a militant killed in a U.S. commando raid in rural southern Somalia in September 2009.
The two songs are titled “Send Me a Cruise (missile)” and “Make Jihad With Me.”
O-Jihad has more on the terror rap.
In “Send Me A Cruise”, the American-born Jihadi Hammami raps about his wish for martyrdom:
Send me a cruise like Maa’lam Adam al Ansari
And send me a couple of tons like Zarqawi
And send me a drone like Abu Laith al Libi
And Special Forces like Saleh Ali Nabhani
Send me all four and send me much much more
I pray for that on my way to heavens door
Send me four and send me more, that what I implore
An amazing martyrdom I strive for and adore
