Some Muslim areas in America are hotbeds for terror recruitment; do you know where they are?

The leader of a Minnesota terrorist cell was sentenced to 35 years in prison despite tearful pleading and apologies which a federal judge was not buying.

Guled Omar, 22, was allegedly behind a plot involving nine men intending to travel to Syria and fight for the Islamic State group, Fox News reported.

“Everything you have said here, I don’t believe,” U.S. District Judge Michael Davis, who has called the group a “terrorist cell,”  told a tearful Omar whose family members had to exit the courtroom to contain their emotions.

Omar was one of three men sentenced Wednesday for “conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit murder outside the U.S,” according to Fox. The other six defendants were sentenced earlier in the week.

Fox News’ Pete Hegseth visited an area in Minneapolis known as “Little Mogadishu,” a Somali-American neighborhood that has been a target for ISIS recruiters. According to census data, Minnesota has 57,000 Somali immigrants, the largest concentration in the country.

Hegseth’s report on why Minnesota is a “hotbed for terror recruitment” featured interviews with the increasingly insular Muslim population of the Little Mogadishu community.

Outspoken community leader Omar Jamal argued that the U.S. government has “miserably failed” to “gain the minds and the hearts  of the Muslim population,” leading to radicalization of many second generation immigrants who feel isolated. This, he believed, creates a perfect environment for a “lone wolf” to hide.

If the U.S. does not find a way to engage Muslims in America, Jamal said, “we are going to have this war on terror for the next generation and the one after.”
