Omar Hammami

American Jihadist Rapper Reportedly Killed In Somalia

(AllHipHop News) Islamic jihadist Omar Hammami aka Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki aka “The American” was reportedly killed by the extremist group al-Shabab yesterday (9/12) in Somalia. Hammami had been on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List since 2012 and had a $5 million dollar bounty on his head from the U.S. government.

He became well-known because of his posts on Twitter and videos on YouTube featuring rap songs like “Send Me a Cruise (Missile)” and “Make Jihad With Me”. His presence online had become an effective recruiting tool for terrorist organizations.

Hammami left his upper-middle class family in Daphne, Alabama to join al-Shabab about 7 years ago. Apparently, the 29-year-old had a fallen out with the group’s leader Mukhtar Abu Zubeyr over the lavish way the top members of al-Shabab had been living at the expense of Somali residents and from tension between foreign and native-born fighters. Hammami began expressing his frustrations on social media which put a target on his back from al-Shabab.

Members of al-Shabab claimed to have ambushed Hammami on Thursday in southern Somalia. Hammami expressed he feared for his life for over a year, and had been reported to have been killed several times. Experts on al-Shabab believe the latest announcement is accurate despite the fact the group did not provide any proof of his death.

Hammami’s father, Shafik Hammami told ABC News, “If he indeed died, he died fighting for his principles, whatever they are.”

    THe CDC confirmed that the brain eating amoeba was found in St. Bernard Parish’s
    water supply…not lake, not stream, not ditch, not spring WATER SUPPLY IE: the water that comes out of your house faucet.

    A 4 year old boy died last week from it yet there has been no mention in the
    news like the other 2 children (Arkansas & Florida) that was also infected
    w/ the amoeba.

    Also no mention in the national news about the blood worms found in the WATER
    SUPPLY in Colcord, Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago.

    I guess we’d rather dumb our selves down and worry a $200,000 tip some scammer
    left or what Kartrashian’s baby looks like.
