Recently, an expert on national security and radical Islamic terrorism began raising the alarm about a particular domestic Islamic organization inside the United States that he feared was connected with international terrorism and making preparations to engage in acts of jihad on American soil.
That expert is Liberty University professor and Clarion Project founder Ryan Mauro, and he spoke on the Fox Business Network in early December to issue his alert regarding the Muslims of America group, formerly known as Jumaat al-Fuqra, a Pakistan-based group suspected of operating nearly two dozen “Islamic village” terrorist training camps in a number of states across the country.
Mauro revealed that the group’s leader believes that President-elect Donald Trump is engaged in a broader conspiracy to destroy the Islamic faith, and thus has ordered his members to arm themselves accordingly and prepare to fight back once law enforcement under Trump commence to raiding their villages.
Mauro said sources inside the group informed had informed him that while the members of the group seemed largely focused on arming themselves for “self-defense,” there had been some talk of “going on the offensive” and launching attacks preemptively, thus necessitating the dire warning, which can be seen right here:
As mentioned by Mauro, a site known as the Fuqra Files has been set up to help spread among the public what is known of the Islamist organization, much of it obtained through declassified FBI investigation files. The group has been established inside the U.S. since the early 1980s, and changed its name from Jamaat al-Fuqra to Muslims of America only in order to distance itself in the eyes of Americans from the known terrorist activity of the former group.
One 2007 FBI report indicated that MOA members were suspected of having been “involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing.”
The report read: “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 MOA is now an autonomous organization which possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S,” the report added.
A prior 2003 FBI report stated, “Investigation of the Muslims of the Americas (sic) is based on specific and articulate facts giving justification to believe they are engaged in international terrorism.”
However, and not at all unsurprisingly, an FBI report issued in 2015 under the Obama administration seemed to absolve the group of any guilt or suspicion by stating that all assertions that the MOA group was conducting terrorist training in their compounds was completely unfounded.
That of course has been seized upon by the liberal media to dismiss all allegations against members of the group, as with an article on the liberal website Talking Points Memo, which seemed to smear Mauro and those who believed his reports as “Islamophobic,” portraying group members as being nothing more than upstanding U.S. citizens.
Nevertheless, Mauro hoped that the incoming Trump administration would take a closer look at the group and its many compounds inside the U.S., and that the group would be designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department, which would make investigating and enforcing the laws against it far easier in the future.
