The Burnsville, Minnesota public school district where “school spirit hijabs” are being offered to elementary students has produced multiple Islamic terrorists, including an ISIS member who was killed in combat in the Middle East. Located just 15 miles south of downtown Minneapolis, suburban Burnsville has absorbed thousands of Somali Islamic migrants, who now exert their religious influence over the local public school district.
As National File recently reported, William Byrne Elementary School in Burnsville, Minnesota is offering “school spirit hijabs” to its young students, under the guise of the school’s “Somali cultural liaison” and in conjunction with its parent-teacher organization. The Sharia-compliant head garb for kids is available in the school’s online “spirit store” and is going on sale at various school events for $6. They come in two colors and feature the school’s bulldog mascot.
Notably, the hijabs are $4 cheaper than any other spirit item.
National File attempted to make contact with William Byrne Elementary School’s principal, Jon Bonneville, but received no response. National File had hoped to learn whether the school would begin offering “school spirit crucifixes” or “school spirit yarmulkes” to students not adhering to the Christian and Jewish faiths and asked principal Bonneville if the hijab sales meant the school was endorsing Sharia law.
After learning of the school spirit hijab program, National File took a deeper look into Burnsville’s local school system, which is officially known as Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, and found deeply disturbing ties to Islamic terrorism.
Burnsville appears to be part of a larger web of terror issues fanning out from Minneapolis, where the import of record levels of Islamic migrants culminated in the 2018 election of far-left Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, herself a migrant of Somali origin who has dismissed the 9/11 attacks as being no big deal.
A 2013 article in Minnesota’s left-wing Star Tribune newspaper celebrated Burnsville’s rapid transformation from an All-American town to an “immigrant suburb” with a “huge Somali population.”
“Burnsville is among the top-10 destinations” for Somali migrants in Minnesota, The Star Tribune reported.
Two years after that report, Minnesota Public Radio News published a lengthy profile on a trio of Muslim Burnsville teenagers who set out to join ISIS. All of them are of Somali migrant backgrounds and all of them attended Burnsville High School.
According to the MPR report and DOJ press releases, on March 9, 2014, 18-year-old former Burnsville High School student Hanad Mohallim boarded a flight from Minnesota to Turkey, where he set out to join ISIS at the Syrian border, and was successful.
Alarmingly, after making his way to the ISIS terror organization, Mohallim was able to keep in touch with his family in the United States and informed them that he was “serving” as a “border guard” on behalf of ISIS. Some months later, his family reported that he’d been killed in combat.
