The two FBI types breaking bread with the enemy in the photo above at
"Islamberg" look right at home to Canada Free Press (CFP). Notice the weapons
these dudes are wearing at the dinner table?
Islamberg is just one of what is thought to be a half dozen radical
Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States, this one
nestled in dense forest at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the
outskirts of Hancock, New York.
Canada, home to at least one such compound, is no safe ground.
Now that the photos of the two unidentified FBI types have been
published, we will undoubtedly hear that they were merely working undercover.
But some sticklers would consider saying cheese from the dinner table of the
enemy is over the top.
Hundreds of letters have deluged (CFP) since it published a story with
pictures of Springtime in Islamberg, written by The Day of
Islam author Dr. Paul Williams with the able assistance of Doug Hagmann, Bill
Krayer and Michael Travis.
Many letter writers complain that local authorities are telling
them they have never heard of the compound.
Islamberg is an al Fuqra house. "Fuqra has had a disturbing U.S.
presence for more than 20 years." (The weekly Standard, March 18, 2002). "Today,
half a dozen Fuqra residential compounds in rural hamlets across the country
shelter hundreds of members, some of whom, according to intelligence sources,
have been trained in the use of weapons and explosives in Pakistan."
In a world where authorities make like terrorism doesn't exist,
Fuqra's founder and bossman, Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, is not only
alive and wellÑhe has a road "Sheikh Gilani Lane" named after him. This road is
not in faraway Pakistan, but right in Charlotte County, Virginia.
Charlotte County is a rural farming community in Central Virginia
near the North Carolina border.
Like its counterpart in Hancock, New York, it is inhabited by proud
Americans many whose sons and daughters are fighting for our freedom in Iraq.
"This is not only an embarrassment to the citizens of
Charlotte County it is a disgrace to the entire country and an insult to the
victims of 9/11 and those fighting overseas in the war against terrorism," wrote
Martin Mawyer, president of the Christian Action Network.
"Sheikh Gilani has rubbed shoulders at international terrorist
confabs with gunslingers from Hamas and Hezbollah, their mullah backers, and
Osama bin Laden. And he has trained fighters for the battlefields of Kashmir,
Chechnya and Bosnia." (the weekly Standard).
Dropping in on radical Muslim paramilitary compounds isn't good for
your health. Two bloggers who posted the plucky Williams' Islamberg story had
their lives threatened.
Most infidels, including even the local undertaker, are denied
access to compounds such as Islamberg.
Indeed, the very undertaker denied access wrote a letter telling
the author/journalist he was surprised he made it off the compound with his life
The undertaker says he has delivered bodies to the complex but has
yet to be granted entrance. "They come and take the bodies from my hearse," he
told Williams. "They won't allow me to get past the sentry post. They say that
they want to prepare the bodies for burial. But I never get the bodies back. I
don't know what's going on there but I don't think it's legal."
As far as is known, Gilani launched his first U.S. operation
without interference from any authority back in 1980.
By the 1990s, Fuqra's communes were being touted as havens where
Muslim convertsÑmany of them inner-city blacks, sometimes recruited in
prisonÑcould find new direction for their lives.
Why aren't people reading about these flourishing compounds in
their hometown newspapers?
Does it require too much work for the mainstream
media, or do politically correct times keep the topic taboo?
You'd think that these compounds would be a priority for Homeland
Security, but they aren't.
One of the letters to Williams via CFP was from a
member of Homeland Security asking for more information!
It seems to be politically incorrect to write about radical Muslim
paramilitary compounds flourishing on American soil and politically incorrect to
talk about terrorism.
For some American and Canadian citizens, it's welcome to life with
a deadly enemy living right next door.
