We are alarmed that this group, operating under various names like Muslims of the Americas (MOA), says it has 22 "Islamic villages" in the U.S. and Canada.
We commend the Clarion Project for its identification of one such "village" in Texas and its acquirement of newly declassified FBI documents that prove that ul-Fuqra meets the State Department's legal criteria for being labeled as a Foreign Terrorist Organization:
