SNIPPET: “Wilson told the informant about his connections to Omar Hammami.”
SNIPPET: “Abukhdair, Wilson, and the informant spent hours watching jihadi videos that included lectures by senior al-Qaida leaders such as Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki, and Ayman al-Zawahiri. Some videos showed graphic violence including “prisoner beheadings and bodily mutilations of the dead including children and adult soldiers.””
SNIPPET: “According to the complaint, Wilson explained the meaning of jihad to Abukhdair and the informant as a war between Islam and Kufars [Arabic for “non-believers”]: “It’s not like a small war anymore. It’s either we’re gonna kill them and defeat them, or they’re gonna kill us and defeat us.”
The complaint further detailed a sermon Abukhdair gave at the local mosque in which he “discussed how Muslims have forgotten about their struggles of persecuted Muslims around the world, especially in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, and Syria.” He told worshippers to support Islam by engaging in dawah, giving to charity “and by supporting the mujahideen,” the complaint said.”

Omar Shafik Hammami Added to the FBIs Most Wanted Terrorists List
November 14, 2012
Today, the FBI Mobile Division announced the addition of Omar Shafik Hammami to the FBIs Most Wanted Terrorists list. Mr. Hammami is wanted in connection with terrorism violations to include providing material support to terrorists.
It is alleged that Omar Shafik Hammami, a U.S. citizen and former resident of Daphne, Alabama, also known as Abu Mansour al-Amriki, provided material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization known as al Shabaab. On February 26, 2008, al Shabaab was designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the Secretary of State.
Hammami allegedly traveled to Somalia during 2006 and eventually joined al Shabaabs military wing. In 2007, after Ethiopian forces invaded Somalia, Hammami joined the front lines as a fighter and eventually became a leader with al Shabaab. On November 27, 2007, an indictment was returned in the United States Southern District of Alabama charging Hammami with 18 U.S.C. 2339A, providing material support to terrorists. On September 24, 2009, a superseding indictment charged Hammami with 18 U.S.C. 2339B, providing material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization. The Southern District of Alabama has issued an active warrant against Hammami for his arrest.
The FBIs Most Wanted Terrorists list serves as a venue to increase public awareness regarding individuals being sought by the FBI in connection with terrorism-related activities. Hammami should be considered armed and dangerous and private citizens should take no independent action against Hammami. If you have any information concerning Hammami, please contact the FBIs tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI or call the FBIs Mobile Division. You may also contact your nearest FBI field office, American Embassy or Consulate, or submit a tip electronically at https://tips.fbi.gov.
