Minneapolis’ Call to Prayer Ushered in by Communist-Jihadi Cabal Controlling MN

Written by John D. Guandolo

Democrat Minneapolis (MN) Mayor Jacob Frey, working directly with terrorists from Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other jihadis from the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center, approved the muslim call to prayer out loud in Minneapolis for the first time in history.

Minneapolis becomes only the third city in America to allow the call to prayer like this. The others are Dearborn, Michigan and Paterson, New Jersey.

You can see a brief video of this call to prayer here.

The approval of the call to prayer by Mayor Frey may be the last nail in Minnesota’s coffin, and represents, to the muslim community, total submission by leaders of Minnesota to Islam.

This great achievement by the enemies of liberty – communists and jihadis – did not happen overnight. Minnesota has a long history of communists in leadership positions willing to pave the way for other “like-minded” revolutionaries, like the jihadis, overrunning Minneapolis-St Paul.

Arvo Kustaa Halberg, also known as Gus Hall, was recruited by his father into Communist Party USA as a teenager and moved to Minneapolis after his studies in the Soviet Union. He spent two stints in federal prison for his activities as a communist. He went on to be the leader of Communist Party USA for over 40 years until his death in 2000. Hall ran for President in the 1972.1976, 1980, and 1984 U.S. elections.

Hall’s students are still plentiful in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Former Minneapolis Mayor Jim Schneibel (1990-1994) was an Alinsky “community organizater” and a member of the largest Marxist group in the United States – Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Saul Alinsky was the author of the Marxist revolutionaries’ operational handbook, Rules for Radicals, which details how to overthrow the government, and the book is dedicated to satan. In it, the ground level operator is called a “community organizer.”

Mark Ritchie, Minnesota’s Secretary of State from 2006 to 2014 was identified in a 2008 Huffington Post article written by DSA Member Peter Dreier as one of dozens of elected officials in the United States who started out as “community organizers.” In 1999, Ritchie attended a Communist Party event in which he was introduced as a “friend” of the Communist party.

Also present at that 1999 Communist Party meeting was Mark Froemke, the man Trevor Loudon has dubbed “The Most Influential Communist in Minnesota.”

These people, and many like them on city councils and in positions of influence around the Minneapolis-St Paul area, are the advocates for jihadis and the ones encouraging more to enter Minnesota via the “refugee resettlement program.”

On October 24, 2016, after Understanding the Threat (UTT) spent a week traveling across Minnesota speaking to citizens and leaders, we published an article entitled “In This War Minnesota’s Twin Cities Are Lost.” The article detailed the penetration of Minnesota by several subversive Islamic organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and others, and the Marxist/communist ties of Minnesota’s leaders.

In the 3 1/2 years since that article, things have only become more dangerous in Minnesota, especially in the Minneapolis-St Paul area.

Let’s look at the key leaders in Minnesota today and how they are supporting and encouraging jihadis in the state.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz‘s wasted no time bringing terrorists into his camp. After his election in November 2018, his Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan led and set up his transition team, which included the leader of the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Jaylani Hussein.

But even as a candidate, Governor Walz was courting jihadis. In February of 2018, he spoke at an event at the South Metro Islamic Center (mosque) sponsored by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim American Society (MAS-MN). Peggy Flanagan also attended this event.

In August of 2018, candidate Walz attended the Eid al Fitr event which was held at the U.S. Bank Stadium. Is Mr. Walz aware Eid al Fitr celebrates Islam’s first military victory over non-muslims in battle?

On March 28, 2019, Minnesota’s Governor Tim Walz spoke at an “Islamophobia” conference hosted by the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).


At this conference, he told the audience he wants to open three (3) new “human rights offices” up in Minnesota. Is Mr. Walz aware that the International muslim world has legally defined the phrase “human rights” as the imposition of sharia on the world? Is he aware the leadership of every Islamic nation on earth under the banner of the OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation) served the “Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam” to the United Nations in 1993 which clearly states Islam views “human rights” only through the lens of sharia?

As if it was scripted and well timed, in April 2019 Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, himself a jihadi (sharia-adherent muslim), began publicly discussing establishing a “Task Force on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism” which would include leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muslim American Society (MAS), Hamas/CAIR, and others.

Ellison is very close friends with the leader of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and U.S. Hamas Nihad Awad, and works closely with other senior U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

On April 3, 2019, for the first time in Minnesota history, three “faith” leaders offered prayers prior to the State of the State address by Governor Walz. Who represented the muslims? Muslim Brotherhood leader Imam Asad Zaman of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MAS-MN).

This past December (2019) Governor Walz gave his formal consent to allow muslims to keep resettling in Minnesota.

The Congresswoman representing Minneapolis, Minnesota is a Somalian jihadi named Ilhan Omar. UTT has written about her several times including here and here. The fact she is a Member of Congress is evidence of how lost Minnesota is.

Hours after President Trump announced he would hold a rally at Target Center in downtown Minneapolis on October 10, 2019, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced uniformed officers were not allowed to attend.

This followed a tweet from Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey as seen below.

Below is a photo of Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo at his swearing in ceremony with his son and daughter. The Chief’s son, Medaria Arradondo Jr. has a sunnah beard and a shaved head. In Islam a muslim man shaves his head to draw closer to Allah, and this is often done by male muslims attending hajj in Mecca Saudi Arabia. The below photo was taken on September 8, 2017 and the hajj that year ended on September 4.

In summary, Minnesota is in a very dangerous situation. Minnesota’s capital has a jihadi Attorney General and a jihadi Member of Congress. The Governor is working directly with jihadis/terrorists.

What happens to truth speakers in this environment?

In January 2020, Catholic Priest Father Nick VanDenBroeke from the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Lonsdale, MN (Rice County) told his flock during his homily the U.S. “should not be allowing large numbers of Muslims asylum or immigration into our country.” He further said muslims are the “greatest threat to Christianity and to America” and that “our laws of immigration need to reflect that.”

This priest was accurately assessing the situation based on normative and universally accepted Islamic teachings. Yet, Catholic Archbishop Bernard Hebda issued an apologetic statement regarding this event after the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) publicly complained and called out church leaders.

U.S. Islamic schools teach muslim children the purpose of Islam is to impose “Allah’s divine law”/sharia on all people on earth through all means necessary, including physical violence.

In fact, what muslims teach their children in Islamic schools across Minnesota is exactly the opposite of what the non-muslim leaders in Minneapolis are telling the people of Minnesota about Islam.

Now the question for the citizens of Minnesota is “What do I do?”

This is a war and, as UTT assessed in 2016, Minneapolis-St Paul is lost and deeply under the control of the communists and jihadis. It is likely at some point in time, the U.S. military will have to retake Minnesota if the citizens are unable or unwilling to do it.

An adequate military analogy is that the capital of Minnesota has an enemy Division headquartered there. The citizens can organize and conduct small harassing and disruption operations inside Minneapolis to slow the enemy’s progress. Another option, or a simultaneous action, might be to organize citizen in the patriotic counties away from the state capital until they have the strength to bring real pressure on the communist and jihadi forces.

One thing is clear – Minneapolis is as overrun as any area of America. Federal government entities are not producing any positive net effects in this war in Minnesota.

It is time for Minnesota’s citizens to choose their course of action. Apathy and inaction are not among the list of choices.

Leaders must rise up, assess the situation, make a plan, and execute the plan.

  1. I am a Veteran from the VN era and went back in the Guard and did 3 tours to Saudi and Qatar and I am ready to take over Minn. true freedom again. When are the true Americans of Minn. north districts going to get together and split Minn. to a American top and a communist below state? I see and hear a lot of talk about taking Minn. back from the communist but nothing seems to happen–PLEASE DO ME A FAVOR LOWER COMMUNIST–STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM NORTHERN MINN–A WHOLE BUNCH OF REAL AMERICANS IN OUR AREA DO NOT LIKE YOUR SATANIC B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T——GO BACK HOME TO YOUR SATANIC RAT INFESTED COUNTRY AND LEAVE OUR CHRISTIAN PEOPLE ALONE. I have been to your satanic rat infested country and you can keep it and if you stay here with your satanic pigs my country will look like yours very shortly——go home and stay there.

  2. Now that Ellison’s son is on City Council, pro-antifa, and leading the charge to abolish the police, would/would not Minneapolis suddenly get a proto-commie-jihad “community task force” to replace policing? The council is in veto-proof majority, all the propoganda has been played with the riots and looting, and the Mayor just got embarassed and shamed out of a gathering for even hinting at being moderate in a crisis. If the police do get defunded, would there not be factional fighting until commie-jihadis come out on top (by sheer willpower) and establish a sharia city of violence, racism, and anti-american launching pad?

  3. her is “heard “

  4. As a child I would wonder how people could live under such conditions and why or how it happened but it does and that is how it starts. MN has a person with voting power who prides herself on how the Somalis sharia migrants came to her area….how insane. I know she her the testimony but didn’t beleive it or would not recognize the doctrine or danger. or ties to terror. This is political warfare and misinformation, deception at it’s core, that is perfected by Islamic sharia.

    • You all in Mn need to know Obama brought lots of multi family of Muslims to your state and gave them the part of the city as they can build and live in USA as a good citizens. This is the outcome of these people they did vote and people that should of vote they didn’t. So use the privilege of voting so our country would not be taking over with these radical people

    I agree, born/raised in Minnesota.

    • I hope you engage in this war. Minnesotans need to engage heavily or, as is likely the more successful route, pull back from the Minneapolis – St Paul area and regroup. The 10 mile radius around city center Minneapolis is enemy held territory.

    This article is very sobering. I am a wife and mother that lives in a suburb of Minneapolis Minnesota. I am concerned for what the future looks like here. I am so thankful that I have a personal relationship with my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. I am thankful to have the leadership of my Pastor and my Godly husband. I am also thankful we have homeschooled our children for the last 5 years! This type of extremism was a big factor in our decision to begin home education 5 years ago… thank you to all who are involved in this website!

  8. I emailed my Mayor a while back and asked how many are in our city. His reply was that is a question Io ask the county. I have tried to talk to my family numerous times. They don’t want to hear it. I sent my neighbor the video of Omar in the Catholic church Dec.1, 2020. No response. It’s Bob and I in Elk River. Its l I’ll ke we are alone. One friend told me have you thought maybe you know to much. Please tell me what to do. Some how Marni Hockenberg showed up on my phone one day. We belong to MGR. My dad96and I know what is happening. But no one wants to hear it. My son is a deputy in MN. Another story. He is 42. My daughter 38 calls me a racist. We are avid 2A ppl. She wldn’t allow my grandson to come here. But she sends him on a weekend trip with a muslim family. We have been preparing for the fight for our lives. We are 65 yrs old.

    • Keep the faith Connie. To stand on truth is to often lose friends and loved ones who do not have the truth or understand it. You are not alone. Tens of millions of Americans stand with you. Stay strong and keep speaking truth boldly in love.

  9. Good work. Thank you for confirming what some of us have believed for quite some time.

  10. OPINION:

    Since it would appear that October 10th 2020 may, in addition to a previously scheduled political visit, also be the date the President of the United States has chosen to commemorate the founding of the United States Naval Academy by paying tribute to the men and women who have graduated there to become commissioned officers either in the United States Navy or the U.S. Marine Corp, I would hope that the U.S. Secret Service will pay close attention to the activities and whereabouts of the deranged sounding Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (see verbatim tirade above) between now and the president’s safe departure from Minnesota following said visit. Which, as I understand it, was initially to include a parade consisting both of battle hardened U.S. Marines and Navy Seals, I.e., to emphasize Minnesota’s, and the rest of the country’s, contribution to keeping our country safe from all enemies both foreign and domestic, among whom sharia adherent lunatics who come here from Somalia and elsewhere to either enslave us or kill us have been both prominent suspects and demonstrable standouts for 14-centuries by virtue of their relentless wars* on Western civilization.

    *Furthermore, anyone wishing to confirm that the Saudi Arabian government funded 9/11 attacks simply represented a continuum of Islam’s 22 May 1991 declaration of war on Western civilization, which was seized in accordance with a federal search warrant from a subterranen basement in Annandale, Virginia USA by special agents of the FBI in 2004, may own a personal Arabic-to-English translated copy of said outrage by simply contacting: http://www.securefreedom.org to request (for a nominal handling & postage fee) GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G U.S. v. HLF , et al.

  11. When we are ready to retake Minnesota, I stand with Freedom and the United States Constitution.

    Let me know when it’s time to roll and I’ll be there to protect our citizens.
