Timely coincidence or campaign hoax? Western media are alleging that Al-Shabaab put out this recruitment video, right on the heels of Hillary Clinton falsely claiming that ISIS was using Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigrants to recruit jihadists from the West. So, who really created this video?
UK Daily Mail During the December 20 Democratic presidential debate, Clinton said ISIS and other groups were ‘going to people showing them videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.’
The video clip features now-deceased al-Qaeda operative and ‘underwear bomb plot’ mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki (killed by an American drone after he fled America for Yemen) is shown in which he tells Western Muslims they face being persecuted and locked in concentration camps.
It then cuts to ‘Donald J Trump calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.’
The video then cuts back to the footage of Awlaki, in which he adds: ‘My advice to you is this. You have two choices, either hejira or jihad, you either leave or fight. ‘You leave and live among Muslims or you stay behind and follow the example of Nidal Hassan and others who fulfilled their duty of fighting for Allah’s cause.’
