New Tape Shows Terror Training on U.S. Soil
On the heels of a deadly FBI shoot out with a radical imam in Detroit and a Muslim extremist in the military launching a shooting attack at Fort Hood killing 13 people, a new videotape has been publicized showing American Muslims training in similar tactics, almost without a doubt on American soil.
The tape was given to me as the national security researcher for the Christian Action Network by a reliable law enforcement source. This source has provided me with other credible information on the Jamaat ul-Fuqra group that operates in the U.S. under the name of "Muslims of America" and the International Quranic Open University, among others. Although the tape is of poor quality, it clearly shows African-American Muslim women fluent in English dressed in military-style camouflage receiving guerrilla warfare training, including hand-to-hand combat, sword fighting, scaling fabricated walls, stealth maneuvering, and firing guns at a lake. They clearly are Americans and the training almost certainly takes place on U.S. soil.
The time stamp on the video is partially cut off, showing only "January 28, 20." The last two appearing digits indicate that it was filmed in the year 2000 at the earliest. My source said it is believed that the video was taken at a place called "Islamberg" in New York, an isolated 70-acre community in the Catskill Mountains that serves as the group's headquarters in the U.S. Martin Mawyer, the president of the Christian Action Network, is certain this is the case by comparing the footage to aerial photos his organization took of various Muslims of America sites around the country.
