“Homeground Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.,” is a new documentary that needs public attention.
It reveals indoctrination training such as “Act like you are his friend. Then kill him,” which is Sheik Mubarak Gilani’s advice on how to kill American infidels.
The 2006 Justice Department document, which exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S., was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed.
All except one, that is, and that errant surviving copy landed with the Christian Action Network, http://www.christianaction.org, and became the foundation for the compelling “Homegrown Jihad.”
I often say it is not a question of who is right or wrong but what is right or wrong that counts. The “Soldiers of Allah,” detailing the background of the terrorist group Jamaat ul-Fuqra, is flat-out wrong on multiple levels.
It is astonishing, and potentially deadly, that the FBI, Homeland Security, and other law enforcement agencies know who and what this group is but apparently have not moved aggressively to shut it down and make arrests.
After watching the video twice, the obvious question I had is: Where are the mainstream media? This story is what “60 Minutes,” “20/20,” and the gaggle of presumptive wannabes is supposed to be all about.
Gilani can be seen on video saying, “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.”
If a GOP candidate, talk-show gadfly, or militia even hinted at the domestic terrorism “Soldiers of Allah” advocates, they would be raided, shut down, tried, and jailed quicker than a minnow can swim a dipper. How long did it take to drop chlorine in the Timothy McVey gene pool?
However, despite an abundance of evidence and series of violent crimes, Gilani appears to be getting away with murder.
FBI Special Agent Jody Weis says, “What we are witnessing here is kind of a brand-new form of terrorism. These home-grown terrorists can prove to be as dangerous as any known group, if not more so.” Former FBI Director Robert Mueller says, “These home-grown terrorists may prove to be as dangerous as groups like al-Qaida, if not more so.” Joseph Lieberman says, “We must also work to protect our country against the next attack — terrorism spawned right here among us.
A 2006 Department of Justice report said, “Today, Jamaat ul-Fuqra has more than 35 suspected communes and more than 3,000 members spread across the United States, all in support of one goal: the purification of Islam through violence.”
The documented list of this group’s violence screams out for action. So why are law enforcement officials sitting on their hands?
George Santayana often is quoted as having said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Six years ago, I wrote about Peter Lance’s gripping series of books about terrorists (http://www.peterlance.com). In the wake of interviews with scores of central figures and hundreds of pages of declassified documents, Lance uncovered startling evidence of FBI negligence that even a joint congressional committee either missed or ignored. His revelations can be found in “1000 Years for Revenge: International Terrorism and the FBI – The Untold Story.”
It is tragic not to know about things that could harm us. But to know about such things and not do anything exceeds mere malfeasance.
Gilani’s “soldiers have been actively engaging in domestic terrorism” since 1979 and reportedly continue to this day (
What is law enforcement waiting for, with this organization hiding in plain view in 35 states and linked to about 50 terrorist attacks on American soil?
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) once criticized me about an observation I made on WMAL in Washington, D.C., that, basically, the Quran allows Muslims to lie to unbelievers. Kinda/sorta like what Sheik Gilani said: “Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.”
At the time, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch noted: “Yet even as it complained about Metcalf’s statement, CAIR’s press release attacking Metcalf doesn’t say what Metcalf said was false. Why not? Because it’s true.” Duh!
“The truth,” Ann Coulter has observed, “is the truth whether we like it or not.”
The allegations in the referenced documentary are serious as a heart attack, and potentially more deadly.
At an absolute minimum, the Foggy Bottom Bureaucrats should add Jamaat ul-Fuqra to the State Department's Foreign Terrorist Organization Watch List, thereby shutting down the domestic terrorist camps in the U.S. that ul-Fuqra's front group, Muslims of America, runs.
