We've already seen two Columbus men, (Somali) Nuradin Abdi and Christopher Paul found guilty and sentenced to federal prison for providing material support to terrorist. Nuradin Abdi and Christopher Paul plotted to blow up the old Columbus City Center Mall at the Caribou Coffee House on August 6, 2002. With the recent Time Square Bombing attempt Columbus needs to wake up to the very real dangers of Islam that regularly produces men like Nuradin Abdi and Christopher Paul.

This will likley lead to further collapse of the Georgesville Rd and W Broad area of Franklin County. There was an attempt by an African Co to buy the largest apartment complex in Columbus behind the now defunct Westland Mall to make it a Somali community.
This group has added burden to the Southwestern City Schools with no taxes being paid by non citizens and the schools being forced toi educate kids that can't speak English.
Further where are jobs for a greater influz of Somalis into the community this will draw ? Where and who will be burdened by the medical bills since they have no insurance ?
It is not a good development for Columbus who has had the second largets somalis community in the country and we need to ask why before we see more of a taxpayer burden on a cash strapped county,city state and schools.
I do not obeject to immigration as long as the group coming here pulls their own waeight. We have not see this from the Somali community since the country they come from is so far different from ours.
These people are nothing but a burden to the west side. They pay no taxes and receive more benefits than any other group.

Most of you sound bitter and uneducated.
If the Somalis are good for nothing who aren't
able to pull their weight, how are they able to
build this big mosque?

Could it be that y'all are jealous for their success even though
they are new comers?

Whatever the reason might be, i think its best and beneficial if y'all
focus on yourselves and try to figure out why you aren't successful.

The energy y'all spend on others should be redirected and spent on
what could better the conditions y'all find yourselves in.

If its education that y'all lack, hit the books and read.

If y'all are lazy, get your asses up and work for your dreams and stop
complaining.

This is a horrible sign of the times given what is happening in Paris.
