Muslims of America terrorist training compounds

gillani-crusade1American Thinker, By Carol Brown, Sep. 20, 2015:

While the Middle East remains a hotbed for terrorists, we’ve got our own jihad training compounds set up in rural areas across the United States. They are run by an organization called Muslims of America (MOA). Law enforcement describes these compounds as “classically structured terrorist cells.”

If you visit the MOA website, you’ll get a hefty dose of taqiyya. The home page has an image of a large American flag along with a banner advertising one of their offshoot organizations called the United Muslim Christian Forum. The goal of this bogus group is to find common ground between Muslims and Christians, including mutual hatred of Jews. The web site also features a slick 16-minute propaganda video.

On the opposite end of the spectrum from what the MOA is publically peddling is the non-taqiyya version of who they are. Otherwise known as the truth.

Let’s start with the founder: El Sheikh Gilani. Prior to MOA, he founded Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani terror organization. MOA is the American version of ul-Fuqra.

Gilani is also the man Daniel Pearl had set out to interview on that fateful day when Pearl was kidnapped. (May Daniel’s soul rest in peace.)

Per the Northeast Intelligence Network, Gilani emigrated from Pakistan around 1980. He settled in Brooklyn, NY, where he began preaching at a mosque frequented by African-American Muslims. This is where he started to recruit for jihad in Afghanistan, often targeting black criminals who converted to Islam in prison — a source of recruits for jihad that continues to this day.

Then Gilani took things a step further and set up a terror-training compound in a rural area of upstate New York. There are now numerous MOA compounds across the United States. Estimates vary regarding how many there are, ranging from 22 to 35. As of this writing, states where MOA has set up shop are: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.

In other words, they’re just about everywhere.

In some states there is more than one location. New York’s “Islamburg” (located in the town of Hancock) is the largest operation and serves as the headquarters. The MOA compound in Colorado was the site of a 1989 seizure by federal authorities of firearms, explosive devices, forged documents, military manuals, and data on potential targets. (See here, here, here,here, here, here, and here for more information on MOA locations, including maps.)

There is no doubt that MOA is a terror organization operating on American soil. It is well documented by the FBI whose records state that MOA has the infrastructure to plan and carry out terror attacks (here, and overseas) and that MOA leaders urge their members to commit jihad against enemies of Islam.

In addition to the FBI, there are courageous individuals and private organizations on the bleeding edge of investigating and exposing this deadly organization, including the Christian Action Network (CAN), with founder and author of Twilight in America, Martin Mawyer, leading the way. (Interview with Mawyer, here.)

Two reports by CAN reveal MOA’s insular communities that thrive on brainwashing, deception, hate, and violence. These reports are summarized below.

  • MOA trains men, and women, to become jihadists poised to attack Americans when Gilani gives the order. Toward this end, MOA maintains a stockpile of illegal weapons. Residents are taught that jihad is their life’s purpose and have been indoctrinated to believe Gilani can travel through space and time to spy on them. After recruits are trained here, many are then sent to Pakistan for more paramilitary training.
  • Compounds are completely insular, with their own stores, mosques, and graveyards, as well as guard posts to intercept visitors. Living conditions are typically poor. Many locations are near lakes where jihadists-in-training shoot weapons across the lake (standing behind the 2nd amendment when confronted about it) in addition to learning other means of attack such as slitting throats and strangulation. All members follow Sharia law and consider themselves to be above local, state and federal authority.
  • Large families and government dependence are encouraged with much of the money sent to Gilani, who is now back in Pakistan. Welfare fraud is rampant as children are urged to commit crimes against non-Muslims and to engage in scams, including welfare fraud and drug-related crimes (with drug money sent to Gilani). Members often use aliases and spelling variations of their names.
  • There are as many as four generations of people living in these camps, all of whom have been taught from the outset to distrust Americans and to prepare for jihad. For some members, life in the camp is all they’ve ever known. In addition to those who were born at the compound, MOA openly recruits through social service organizations, with many new members coming from the prison system.
  • Discipline in the camps is ruthless and is used to exact punishment and intimidate members from leaving. If members break a rule, they may be tied to a tree and beaten. In addition, women are routinely raped and children are physically abused. Girls are denied an education, such as it is.

Per the Northeast Intelligence Network, MOA members have been suspected and/or convicted of a variety or crimes, including assassinations, fire bombings, and fraud. Money has been laundered through Muslim front organizations established by Gilani, including an Islamic university and private elementary schools.

So how does MOA get away this?

Two former FBI agents (Tim Clemente and John Guandolo) reported on factors that reflect a combination of deception, political correctness, and public policy that inhibits the FBI’s ability to do their job. First, the FBI wants to avoid the appearance that it is scrutinizing Muslim organizations and/or is infringing on religious freedom. Second, MOA sets up religious/charitable causes to mask their illicit activities, intertwining good with bad. This enables them to play the victim card during investigation attempts.

In other words, suicidal political correctness overrides our safety as United States law enforcement allows itself to be intimidated by faux charities that provide cover for terrorists.

But perhaps the most significant barrier to our ability to take action is the fact that our State Department refuses to designate ul-Fuqra a terrorist organization despite unequivocal evidence that they are. In addition, as Ryan Mauro, national security researcher for CAN stated back in 2009: “law enforcement authorities do not have the tools they need to search these compounds…members involved in terrorist and criminal activity are being treated as if they are isolated incidents; rogue followers of an otherwise innocent cult. Legislation on the state level also needs to be passed to permit the authorities to search these compounds.”

So we’ve got jihad training camps and sleeper cells scattered all across the United States ready to attack. And what are we doing about it? Precious little.

Who among us will be the next to fall victim to Gilani’s directive?

“Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.”

CAN President appears on national TV to expose America’s Islamic ‘no-go zones’


Newsletter from Martin Mawyer, Jan. 15, 2015, Christian Action Network:

In the wake of the horrific slaughter at the Charlie Hebdo magazine office in France, the media is suddenly interested in Islamic “no-go” zones scattered throughout Europe where many Muslims are radicalized into jihadists.

But it’s important for Americans to understand that right here in the United States we have real “no-go” zones that have been in existence for decades.

On Wednesday I appeared on the Fox and Friends show to discuss America’s Islamic no-go zones with host Brian Kilmeade. I explained that a group of Muslims known as Muslims of America (MOA) has as many as two dozen enclaves scattered around the nation, including in Virginia, California, Georgia, South Carolina and New York.

I will also be appearing on Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV this Friday, Jan. 16.

MOA was founded by a Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarik Gilani, and are also known as Jamaat al Fuqra (community of the impoverished).

Several years ago, when my camera crew attempted to enter one of the enclaves in Red House, Virginia, we were angrily and violently forced to leave. Some of the enclaves, including the ones located in Hancock, N.Y., and York, S.C., have entrances protected by armed guards.

Even in France and England, where large no-go zones have been established within some of their largest cities, it is still possible to walk into the neighborhoods without being beaten down. I know this from personal experience, because I entered no-go zones in England while filming my new documentary, “Europe’s Last Stand: America’s Final Warning”.

This documentary, which has just been released, is so timely because it explains the history and carefully crafted plan of Islamists to infiltrate European societies, and then take them over. Next on their agenda is the United States.

Yet the no-go zones that exist right now in America are even more dangerous than the European ones which are so much in the news today. Throughout the al Fuqra camps in the United States, members conduct weapons training and shooting drills. This doesn’t happen in the European no-go zones.

And in the U.S. enclaves, they even receive instruction in guerilla combat, how to strangle an enemy and cut a throat. All of these activities have been captured on video.

They exist in remote, rural, often mountainous regions of America where detection is difficult. When they shoot their guns or conduct drills, there is often no one within earshot to hear.

Al Fuqra was once listed on the State Department’s watch list of terror organizations – yet today it operates on dozens of enclaves as independent no-go zones with no interference from the outside world. The camps have their own government, with their own mayors and town councils. And because they are Muslim, they use Islamic Sharia law to govern their day-to-day operations.

Polygamy is also practiced on the camps, according to one former resident who spoke with me. He revealed many alarming things about life on the camps, including the fact that the women and elderly are often beaten for disobeying the community rules. These rules can include something as simple as watching TV.

My new film, “Europe’s Last Stand: America’s Final Warning,” took four years to film and produce. During that time I and a camera crew visited dozens of European nations, interviewed hundreds of European officials, experts, clergy and common folks.

I also had an exclusive interview with the radical cleric Anjem Choudary, who has vowed to fly the flag of Islam over the White House. All of these interviews are included in my new documentary, as well as shocking footage of European riots that broke out while we were filming in Great Britain.

In the film, it is clearly demonstrated that Islamists have nearly fulfilled their plan for taking over Europe, and now they have the United States in the crosshairs. I urge you to order this film for yourself, then share it with everyone you know.

‘Sleeping Giant’: New CAN Video Exposes Islamic Radicalization in American Prisons

CAN, By Martin Mawyer:

When I learned that President Obama had released the five most notorious jihadists from the prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for an Army deserter, I reacted as many Americans did: I was horrified to think these savages were being put back into circulation by our own president.

Our recently released video exposé, “Sleeping Giant: Islam Behind the Wall,” demonstrates in shocking detail what President Obama seems not to understand—that prison itself is an incubator for radical Islam.

There is much more to the story of these Gitmo Five than just the near-certain prospect that they will soon all be back on the battlefield engaged in acts of terrorism against us. Islamists cannot be given the freedom to become more virulent in their ideology inside our prisons, only to be set free to commit more jihad. That is suicide. And that’s exactly what’s happening in America’s prisons.

In making our video “Sleeping Giant,” I had the opportunity to interview a convicted felon who spent years in several of America’s most infamous state prisons. It was an eye-opening interview that left me both shaken and convinced that America is literally teeming with radicalized ex-cons who leave prison better equipped and more willing to harm us than when they went in.

Zoran , of Serbian descent, is an American citizen who landed in prison after a felony conviction. After seeing how powerful the Muslim gangs are in prison, he decided to infiltrate them.

“I wanted them to think I hated the government, and that I hated America,” he said.

When I met Zoran, he was covered in some frightening tattoos, most of them obtained in prison. Some were in the Serbian language advertising his gang affiliations. Others were marks of his accomplishments in the martial arts. He is tall, muscular and strong—perfect for a Muslim gang.

“They look at a prisoner’s physique, to see if he is strong,” Zorn explained, “but they also look for a weak individual, someone who needs food, a sense of family, who needs someone to help them.

“They present a sign of hope” to these lost prisoners, he said.

“They ask, ‘Do you need to make a call? Here’s a cell phone, you have five minutes,’” Said Zoran. “If you need drugs, pornographic material, cigarettes, they’ll provide it. And they’ll hold these things for you so you don’t get in trouble with the guards.”

According to Zoran, Muslims in our prisons “control everything. They have everything on lockdown—the jobs, the drugs, the guards, everything.”

Zoran was stunned to see that radical Islamic ideology—including guerilla combat techniques—is taught right in the prisons without any monitoring from the prison authorities.

“One day they saw me practicing some (martial arts) moves,” he said. “They decided I should teach advanced combatives to their Muslim gang members.”

muslims in prisonZoran also explained that books teaching radical Islamic ideology are smuggled into the prisons with ease. Books like “The Anarchist Cookbook”—a murder manual that teaches radicals how to make bombs and other weapons—enters the prisons in the Arabic language in plain bindings so that prison officials and guards think it is the Koran, or other Islamic teachings.

Zoran also learned how to defraud America’s welfare system from his Muslim mentors in prison. “They teach you unemployment fraud, Social Security fraud,” he said. A big scam in the prisons is the illegal use of “green dot” pre-paid cards. Friends and family on the outside help the prisoners use false Social Security numbers to load hundreds of dollars onto the cards so they can be used in the prisons to buy anything the prisoners need—including illegal drugs.

One of Zoran’s most shocking admissions was that the Muslim gangs don’t just stop their indoctrination once the prisoner is let out. They are persuaded to make immediate contact with Islamic communities and mosques on the outside, where they can continue their Islamic jihad training.

Zoran said his Muslim mentors in prison specifically directed him to Islamic guerilla training compounds in Virginia, Georgia and New York as places where he could go for jihadist training when he left the prison system. These training camps have been identified as Muslims of the Americas (MOA) compounds.

MOA has been identified by the FBI as a terrorist organization in America which also runs compounds in a number of other states.

MOA is known to have recruited many of its members from America’s prisons. One of the most notorious prison converts to Islam, who also had connections to MOA, is “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, who was radicalized in a British prison. Reid tried to blow up an airplane with a bomb in his shoe that failed to properly detonate in 2001, en route from Paris to Miami.

Once Muslim gang members in prison have indoctrinated other prisoners into the Islamic ideology, they begin training them for jihad. Zoran’s advanced experience in martial arts techniques attracted him to Muslim gang members when he was in prison.

“They wanted me to teach advanced combat at these camps” when he got out of prison, Zoran said.

This amazing and eye-opening interview with Zoran is included on a DVD released by Christian Action Network entitled: “Sleeping Giant: Islam Behind the Wall.”

The Rise of Prison Conversions

In 2003 about 20 percent of the prison population was estimated to be Muslim. At least 80 percent of the prisoners who “find faith” in prison convert to Islam. Most of them are black, but a growing number are Hispanic.

In a 2004 report issued by the Justice Department, the nation’s federal and state prison systems were faulted for failing to protect against “infiltration by religious extremists.” That failure is obviously continuing to this day.

Some other notable converts to Islam in prison include Malcolm X, the so-called civil rights activist; Abdul Alim Musa, a Muslim-American activist;  B.G. Knocc Out, a black rapper; Charles Brooks, Jr. , a convicted murderer who converted to Islam before his execution; Flesh N Bone, a member of the rap group Bone Thugs N Harmony; H. Rap Brown, a former Black Panther who is currently in prison for murdering a police officer; Jeff Fort, a former Chicago gang leader who was convicted in 1987 of conspiring with Libya to perform acts of domestic terrorism; José Padilla, who was convicted of aiding terrorists in the “Dirty Bomb” plot; Kevin James, ringleader of the 2005 Los Angeles bomb plot; Mike Tyson, former heavyweight boxing champion;  Bernard Hopkins, former middleweight and light heavyweight boxing champion; and many others.

Recently, Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that “Three dozen U.S. citizens who converted to Islam while in prison have traveled to Yemen, possibly for al Qaeda training.”

“Organized crime is small compared to their operations” in American prisons, said Zoran. “Their master plan is numbers.” The more converts they make in prison, the more Islamists enter the free world to do their bidding—jihad.
