2nd January 2015, Somali based Islamist group, the Al Shabaab released a recruitment video in form of a documentary.
According to translation of the video by SITE Intelligence Group, the film is about racial injustice in the United State and features Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The Republic front runner is featured in the 51-minute release. The militant release comes after Trump called for United States to bar all Muslims from the country.
Trump remarks were overwhelmingly condemned by world leaders and also provoked an international uproar, criticism that his views could be used as propaganda by Islamist militants.
The video which is aimed at inciting Muslims and is a form of recruitment for more foreign fighters also shows two clips of militant leader Anwar al-Awlaki who was killed in a US drone strike in Yemen in 2011.
The message throughout the video urge the Muslim community to either leave the crusader’s land (meaning United States) or opt to stay at home and fight the west.
The film was distributed on Twitter on Friday by the al-Kataib Media Foundation, an Islamist militant organization, SITE Intelligence reported.
