TERRORIST CELL IN TEXAS: Declassified FBI Docs Reveal Terror Enclave Near Sweeney, TX

Published on February 22, 2014

Jamaat ul-Fuqra is a terrorist organization that is known to be firmly entrenched in the United States. It has never been listed as a “terrorist group” despite the FBI’s admission that the group is linked to at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings, and one attempted bombing.

The Clarion Project is an independent organization that focuses on Islamic issues in America. Recently the organization obtained and published some declassified FBI documents which expose a Texas cell of Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Clarion Project reports:

Terror Enclave: “Mahmoudberg, Texas”

The MOA compound in Texas, described by the FBI as an “enclave” and “communal living site,” is in Brazoria county along County Road 3 near Sweeny. It was discovered by the FBI due to a tip from an informant in New York.

The MOA referred to its Texas commune as “Mahmoudberg” in online instructions for a parade in New York in 2010. A posting on an Islamic message board in 2005 advertised a speaking engagement in Houston by someone from Mahmoudberg.

According to the reports, the commune is seven to 10 acres large, is in an “extremely wooded area” and two or three trailer homes moved there in December 2001. However, ACT members visited the area as part of Clarion’s investigation and interviewed one nearby local who confidently said it is closer to 25 acres in size and spoke of a presence dating back to the late 1980s.
