SIIASI has been the subject of investigations by the FBI, which included a June 2006 raid on the institute’s premises. There may be a number of reasons for the government’s interest in the group.

One is the fact that the membership of SIIASI primarily consists of ex-felons. Pictures on the group’s official website display SIIASI associates brandishing guns and swords. In one photo, which appears to have been taken in the U.S., an individual is seen holding a rifle on his lap, while a young boy kneels close to him.

Another reason for the FBI’s concern over SIIASI is the extreme rhetoric that is spread by the organization’s leader.

Muhammad Shareef is the Director of SIIASI. He established the group in the Republic of Sudan in December 1985, along with a small group of others, which included the Sultan of Maiurno, Sudan, al-Hajj Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad.

Shareef, a co-founder and former board member of MANA, left his Pennsylvania home to live in China, where he resides today. He has been outspoken in his hatred of the United States, frequently referring to the U.S. as “Amerikkka.”

Only last month, in June, Shareef railed against those whom he considers Muslim moderates, when he stated the following on the SIIASI official website: “This activist method [adherence to the Sunna (Way) of Islam] is diametrically opposed to the pseudo-religion redefined by the pacifist ‘imams’ who deny the obligation of jihad [holy war] and who have deluded their followers into the fruitless activity of supporting democratic constitutional government.”

Shareef’s aggressive language against the U.S. and in favor of violence is disturbing to say the least. But what’s more disturbing is that he and others from similar backgrounds have interaction with and/or connections to children, including those who are just starting to develop thoughts of their own.

Jawala Scouts are no Boy Scouts. The group is run by those who wish to use the most innocent in our society for sinister means. It is a type of abuse that, up until this point, has gone unnoticed. But now that it’s been made public, the public needs to speak out, so that the city of Philadelphia does the right thing.

What we do not want to hear is that the next terrorist attacker was formerly a member of Jawala Scouts.

Joe Kaufman is the Chairman of Americans Against Hate and the founder of CAIR Watch. He has been responsible for the closure of at least one terror-related charity and has convinced a number of government officials to shun the Hamas front group, CAIR. In June 2009, he won a lawsuit brought against him by seven Dallas-area radical Muslim organizations.

Beila Rabinowitz is the Director of Militant Islam Monitor.

    Our government is weak and effete – we murder our boy babies with abortion/murder and call it "abortion", a good medical procedure that saves many lives. So we sit here and wait to be eaten by low savages who keep their babies – helpless, begging to be 'understood'. Oh if only those Catholic Crusaders who many times in history have saved us from the Muslims would return and take the matter of survival of civilization in hand again!

      Henry, I for one, as a woman and a non-Christian, do not wish for crusaders or any religious army to take arms.
      I wish for an army based on judeo-christian values to unite. Not religious, as I envision it is open to members of all religions, to unite and take arms against this death cult named Islam.

    It's scary to think we could lose our freedom. It's even scarier to think of what this Muslim indoctrination is doing to the minds of young children, especially young American children. God help us to help ourselves and our children.

  • Ohms

    Sounds a lot like the boy scouts if you ask me.

    • dina

      Add this "boy scout" training to a hateful ideology, and voila! you have something entirely different.

    • Borg

      It's extremely similar. The claims of teaching "hate" and "racism" and "anti-americanism" are all propaganda.

  • B.T. Jones

    Who's afraid of the Boogaloo Scouts?

  • B.T. Jones

    Are these kids supposed to run the Jews out of America? Ha, ha. Good LUCK.

    • Borg

      No.

    Look what I posted up there! why the hell doen't anyone comment on it? Do you like blabbering about almost nothing? Read it again and say some damn thing! Our government is weak and effete – we murder our boy babies with abortion/murder and call it "abortion", a good medical procedure that saves many lives. So we sit here and wait to be eaten by low savages who keep their babies – helpless, begging to be 'understood'. Oh if only those Catholic Crusaders who many times in history have saved us from the Muslims would return and take the matter of survival of civilization in hand again!

    I've worked with the Jawala scouts and it's leaders and have been in the community with them for years now. They aren't commiting terrorist acts of any kinds(and have not, ever), and they are teaching the children combat for self defense and discipline. The organization is also completely against terrorist acts. One thing I find interesting is the fact that when the american has a gun, he's ready to defend his country, "freedom", and "democracy". But when a muslim has a gun, he's automatically a terrorist. This article is a result of pure propaganda.

    You are the same people who killed off thousands of Indians calling them savages, bombed Japan,recognized the kkk as a legitimate social group, make movies to glorify Al Capone and Billy the Kid. Look at the social and ecconomic condition of the USA WE HAVE FALLEN FROM GRACE NOT FROM THE HANDS OF ANYONE ELSE, WE ARE CAUSING OUR OWN DISTRUCTION BECAUSE WE COMPRIMISE VALUES FOR WEALTH.

    You white people are crazy.

    No one knows how many muslims are in the US but estimates from credible sources range from 2 to 7 million and over 1800 mosques many supposedly financed by Saudi Arabia. America is already over-populated and we surely don't need any more muslims. I agree fully with Ann Coulter that muslim immigrants do not assimilate into our culture but are attempting, with some success, inflicting their culture and sharia law upon America.

  • Ronald Byrns

    Muslim's are like a Cancer. The only reason they are here is to try & bring down Our Great Country. Everyone needs to flood their Gov. representative's in box asking them to do their job. Round up all Muslims & deport them. They are every ones enemy & as long as they are here they will be a threat.

    This article is the most racist, xenophobic piece of trash I had ever read. The group does everything regular boy scouts, camping, learning about nature, teaching the boys to be respectful and most of all the love of Allah. Living here and knowing the good that these groups do, keeping the boys out trouble, teaching them something better than streets. But…”If it ain’t white and christian, it ain’t right” You people have this idea of “if it has anything to do with Muslims, it has to represent some form of terrorism” I don’t understand how the creators of such terror, mass destruction, death, war and atrocity on a massive scaled could possibly believe that anyone could be as diabolical, hateful and racist as themselves. You keep up this hateful diatribe because the people that read this garbage don’t know any better and they couldn’t possibly as a Muslim or learn the truth from a Muslim, because it is easier to hate, it is easier to spread this non-sense because people are too dumb and brainwashed in hate as their people were, the people before them and their racist attitudes and beliefs that they don’t know any other way to live or be. But….It does no good trying to talk or even attempt to start a rational dialogue, because you have to have some form of intelligence to do that and from this article it seems that the people that believe and spew this racist garbage are the ones who have nothing better to say than more hateful non-sense. “violence based activities” my son was in the jawalas and he was in the boy scouts before I was a Muslim and they did basically the same thing. You people have nothing better to do than slander, promote lies and hatred and it takes a really sorry human being to savagely attack a children’s group. You people definitely mimic the savagery of your ancestors in what you don’t understand. The barbaric attitude that represents “if its not like us white and christian its not right” Still after 100′s of years you are still the same people minus the sheets (well, some of you still wear your sheets” most of you run around disguised as writers, or other members of society with some type of a platform to vomit up your ideals, opinions and non-truths. How truly sad and pathetic you people are….My suggestion, read a book, talk to a Muslim, ask them about questions you may have instead of being led by the evil people that promote hatred. This type of excrement gives me a headache, I have wasted enough of my time replying to ignorance.
