I received an email from a friend in South Carolina telling me that there was a terrorist training camp in York County, S.C. York county occupies an area of 696 square miles in the North East part of S.C., not far from Charlotte, N.C. It has a population of 226,073 as of the 2010 census. The Clarion Project website lists it as “Islamville” with the address of Islamville Way, York County, S.C. 29745. Formed in 1982. They boast of having the first Islamic Shrine in America.
A call to the Sheriff’s Department of York County, I was told that no such place exists. They admitted to having an Islamic commune with peaceful Muslims living there that bear no threat to anyone. That’s the official story. However, I found a website of Holy Islamville, Home of the Baitun-Noor Holy Khangah. Supposedly a part of the MOA (Muslims of America) proclaiming peaceful intentions in establishing harmony between them and other religious faiths of America. They emphasize that their focus is on similarities with other peoples of the “Book” and not their differences. They go by the name Jamaat Al-Fuqra in the United States.
The following three paragraphs from WDN explain things a little differently:
According to the FBI, there are at least 22 Islamic paramilitary communes in the US. These communes are operated by the Pakistan-based group Jamaat al-Fuqra and its main US front group, Muslims of the Americas. Pamela Geller, author of the Atlas Shrugs blog and the book Stop the Islamization of America, has been following the militant training compounds since 2007.
Most of the recruits living at these communes are African-Americans who converted to Islam while doing hard time in state or federal prisons, Geller says. They have operated “under the not-so-watchful eye” of the FBI since the early 1980s, she says, but few Americans are aware of their existence all these years later.
Gilani’s group operates a slick website in which a female narrator in one promo video waxes beautifully about how the group has rescued many young Americans from a life a crime, drugs and poverty. The group claims to focus on a ministry to “indigenous American Muslims.” One would never guess from the video that the group trains young men and women in the use of small arms and military tactics.
However, another website from Hancock, N.Y. gives a video which show military training in progress including their recruitment. The U.S. headquarters in Islamberg, the group, headed by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, operates communes in mostly remote areas of California, Georgia, South Carolina, New York, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Michigan, Tennessee and other states.
They seem to be operating low key to keep from arousing too much suspicion from the police and the government agencies, they are stealthy in their terrorist training. While Home Land Security as well as the FBI are supposedly keeping watch on their activities, they seem to be growing in numbers. One person said there were more than two dozen, another said their were about thirty such camps in at least 22 states. They seem to be taking advantage of our freedoms of speech, political correctness and freedom of religion while they train to overthrow our government and us as a free people.
I found another web site showing a very lengthy PDF File “Identifying the Links between White Collar Crime and terrorism. On page 21 of this you will find a list of Fuqura criminal activities. On Appendix B you will find “Suspected Fuqra Activities, Training Compounds and Activities, by State”. On Appendix C, you will find “White-collar Crimes Used to Support Terrorist Activities.” It’s a 92 page file so it will take some patience to read through the whole thing.
The most informative explanation of the training camps I found was a 35 minute documentary on You Tube which tells pretty much the whole story as it is described in the Koran. It is apparent that Islam’s goal is to conquer the world for Allah, the United States is included.
To quote a poem by Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani:
Come join our troops and army
Says our Sheik Gilani.
Prepare to sacrifice your head,
A true believer is never dead.
Say victory is in the air,
The Kafir’s blood will not be spared.
Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani claims to have between 10 and 15 thousand followers in America with a presence in 22 of the American states. He also says:
“These are the end times and the carpet is being rolled up”. He also tells his followers to “Act like a friend, and then kill them, just like from the book.”
Sheik Gilani started in 1980 recruiting Islamists for the war between Afghanistan and Russia and at the same time he apparently started recruiting Islamists for his training camps in America.
Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl went to Pakistan to interview Gilani about the shoe bomber, Richard Reid but Gilani thought Daniel Pearl was there to target him and an assassination team would be sent in to kill him. Gilani claims no responsibility in Daniel Pearl’s execution.
Several covert paramilitary training compounds exist within some of the communes. Law enforcement are aware of seven training facilities in the ROCIC (Regional Organized Crime Information Center). His followers are referred to as the Soldiers of Allah, SOA.
