John Guandolo, former FBI agent and author of Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America, reports that declassified FBI documents definitively confirm the connection between a shadowy terror cell located in Texas and Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terrorist network with over 20 compounds scattered across the United States. Jamaat al-Fuqra is led from Pakistan by radical cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani who was implicated in the beheading of Wall Street Journalist Daniel Pearl.
Members of Jamaat al-Fuqra, described by the State Department as “an Islamic sect that seeks to purify Islam through violence,” have been arrested for more than a dozen murders, fire-bombings, gun running, drug trafficking and defrauding government agencies amongst other crimes. Jamaat al-Fuqra is headquartered in the village of Islamberg near Hancock, NY. Other Jamaat al-Fuqra locations include Hagerstown, MD, Falls Church, VA, York, SC, Dover, TN, Buena Vista, CO, Talihina, OK as well as Tulare County and Squaw Valley, both in CA. Additionally, large complexes have been established in Red House, VA and Commerce, GA near Macon, and training camps are located just across the border in Metro Toronto, Ontario Canada.
Jamaat al-Fuqra maintains a tax exempt front group called Muslims of the Americas, with offices in Tallahassee, FL, Binghamton, NY, Springfield, MA, Dover, DE and Roanoke, VA.
Guandolo, who confirms that sufficient evidence exists to indicate that Jamaat al-Fuqra is a jihadist criminal syndicate controlled by a foreign power, is calling for a congressional investigation on the grounds of criminal conspiracy.
