I was watching Fox & Friends this morning and was a little surprised about a brief exposé of Muslims of the Americas (MOA) as having ties to Sheik Mubarak Ali Gilani a Cleric leader of the Pakistan Islamic terrorist group known as Jamaat al Fuqra. The Fox & Friends story began by talking about (a probably NSA) warning for airlines to be on the watch for Islamic shoe bombers then segued into the MOA story. I was surprised because even Fox News shies away from doing news pieces on Muslim American organizations that have enough money to scream civil suit by labeling fact based information as a racist Islamophobic Hate Crime. In fact this Gilani character from his comfort zone in Pakistan has tried to flex those moneyed civil suit muscles in the past and some Counterjihad writers exposed the Gilani-Jamaat al-Fuqra-MOA connections that in America are downright Islamic Terrorist training centers for homegrown Islamic-American terrorism. The Fox & Friends story focused on the MOA in Texas but in reality those MOA “villages” are spread out around the USA and I believe most heavily along the eastern USA. Here is a Fox News Insider write-up that includes info from the Clarion Project:
Report: Texas Islamic 'Village' Linked to Extremist Group in Pakistan
Feb 20, 2014 8:09AM
A shocking new report from The Clarion Project details a jihadist enclave in Texas that was investigated by the FBI for possible links to terrorism. The reporter who broke the story, Ryan Mauro, joined Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the details, saying the report is based on declassified FBI documents.
Here's more from the The Clarion Project report:
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. It was featured on the Kelly File on FOX News Channel in October. 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. It states:
“The documented propensity for violence by this organization supports the belief the leadership of the MOA extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government. Members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from Sheikh Gilani.”
The document also says that, "The MOA is now an autonomous organization which possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S."
Other FBI reports describe the MOA in similar ways, with a 2003 file stating, “Investigation of the Muslims of the Americas is based on specific and articulate facts giving justification to believe they are engaged in international terrorism…”
MOA members believe the holiest Islamic site in the country is located at their Islamville commune in South Carolina. Other MOA entities include the International Quranic Open University, United Muslim Christian Forum, Islamic Post, Muslim Veterans of America and American Muslim Medical Relief Team.

Mauro said that locals recall the camp being set up in the late 1980s.
"They are still preaching jihad. They still follow this radical Pakistani cleric that they basically believe is God. And they are a dangerous group and you can see it in the language of the FBI documents that we've released," he said.
Mauro explained that the group is mostly made up of American citizens and most of their activities in the U.S. are legal.
"They go right up to that line. The reason they're able to operate in the United States is because the State Department doesn't consider this group, Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a foreign terrorist organization. They operate in the United States under the name Muslims of the Americas," said Mauro.
Homegrown Islamic terrorism is a very real threat to American and Americans that Muslims consider the kafir (unbeliever). It is time for not only Americans to WAKE-UP but also America’s political leadership! To be less eloquent: Forget this multicultural diversity crap especially if it threatens Americans and then viability of the U.S. Constitution. AND make no mistake, the theopolitical ideology of Islam is the diametric opposite of the American heritage of the pursuit of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. In Islam life is ONLY for Allah and his prophet Mohammed; liberty is only as it is in absolute submission to Allah and the pursuit of happiness is only set out by Sharia Law.
Although I saw this story on Fox & Friends the inspiration for this post is the Clarion Project. Including the link to the Fox & Friends story, the Clarion Project sent three links in conjunction with The Blaze TV Show “For the Record.”
