The organization says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S.
Ryan Mauro at the Clarion Project brings us the story of a little terrorist town named Mahmoudberg in Texas.
A Clarion Project investigation has discovered a jihadist enclave in Texas where a deadly shooting took place in 2002... The enclave belongs to the network of Muslims of the Americas, a radical group linked to a Pakistani militant group called Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Its members are devoted followers of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, an extremist cleric in Pakistan.
The organization says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S., with Islamberg as its main headquarters in New York. The Clarion Project obtained secret MOA footage showing female members receiving paramilitary training at Islamberg... A second MOA tape released by Clarion shows its spokesman declaring the U.S. to be a Muslim-majority country.
A 2007 FBI record states that MOA members have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing.
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. The MOA referred to its Texas commune as “Mahmoudberg” in online instructions for a parade in New York in 2010.
Locals told the ACT members that they have heard gunfire coming from the commune. Interviewed residents all agreed that the MOA members are private, yet when the ACT members were spotted in the area, they were immediately and repeatedly approached. At one point, a commune resident gave them a final warning to leave, despite the fact that they were not trespassing or harassing MOA members.
“It was definitely very threatening and menacing,” an ACT member told me.
Locals told the ACT members that government investigators had visited the area a few times and the commune residents refused to talk to them. According to one local, two ambulances were denied entry earlier this year until the police intervened.
So why is MOA/JUF allowed to operate in the country?
The answer is that the State Department has not designated MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The group is thus permitted to organize in the U.S. until that happens.
That's only a small part of the larger article and it's also a reminder that No Go Zones already exist in America and that they can form even more easily in rural areas than in cities. These are base communities meant to serve as an expansion point for future Emirates as Islamic settlements in the United States grow and Jihadist activity rises.
The violence begins with terrorism, moves on to guerrilla warfare and then to a conventional war when they have the population numbers.
