It is reminiscent of the Spanish Civil War volunteers
Off to Spain to fight the fascist tide we later came to fear
News reports are that Somali-Americans in small numbers are off to Iraq
To join ISIS in its march to Baghdad and brutal attacks
The news that Muslims however small in the U.S. are heeding the ISIS call
Should cause concern to one and all
To ISIS the country must be the Great Infidel like Israel with no right to exist
How do we now in the Homeland new sources of terror to successfully resist?
How do we confront jihadist terror not from abroad but from within?
While not being attacked for a Muslim phobia PC spin?
Given the fact that the Iraqi Army under Maliki knows only how to shed uniforms and take flight
These Somali-Americans volunteers will most likely survive and return to the Homeland to carry on the ISIS fight
One hopes that the alarms are ringing at the Department of Homeland Security and FBI
To face yet another brand of terror now homegrown wanting for us to die.
