The Muslims of the Americas (MOA), a Pakistan-linked Islamist group that runs 22 “villages” across the U.S., is waging a litigation jihad against Martin Mawyer, President of the Christian Action Network. His offense, for which MOA demands $30 million, is exposing the group’s extremism in a new book with the help of inside information from a former MOA leader.
Readers of Twilight in America get an inside look at MOA, a cultish Sufi Islamist group that follows Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani as a representative of Allah. Gilani also leads Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani “Islamic sect that seeks to purify Islam through violence,” in the words of the State Department.
Mawyer’s book includes the fascinating story of Ali, a former high-level member of MOA that worked as a secret informant for the NYPD for eight years.
The group’s headquarters is on an approximately 70-acre piece of land notoriously named “Islamberg” near Hancock, New York. MOA has been trying to give its image a makeover, now often operating under the name of the United Muslim-Christian Forum while calling for blasphemy laws.
Residents near “Islamville” in South Carolina recently recorded gunfire coming from the “village.”
The need for a re-introduction to America arises from Mawyer’s release of a secret MOA tape filmed in Pakistan. Excerpts were first shown in his Homegrown Jihad documentary. The video clearly shows Gilani stating that the MOA camps around the U.S. are to be used as guerilla training facilities. It then showed MOA members receiving such deadly instruction.
After the film’s release, I provided Mawyer with a second secret MOA tape that was given to me by a confidential source. The video shows women at “Islamberg” receiving the instruction offered in the earlier tape, performed while in military fatigue. It has since been viewed nearly 200,000 times. However, this tape was also aged and of poor quality, allowing the overly-optimistic to suggest that the training has ceased for some reason.
The first-hand testimony of Ali, recounted in a chapter titled “Modern Warrior Slaves,” documents the ongoing paramilitary training taking place at the MOA sites, though the group has become more selective in choosing its recipients.
“He [Ali] said the purpose of the training was to be ready for Jihad when their leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, gave the orders,” Mawyer said in an interview.
“Ali told me, ‘Their ultimate purpose is to be ready when the time is right.’ He said, ‘You have to understand this. These kids, all they’ve been living for their whole lives is they want to fight a holy war.’”
The MOA is considered a domestic organization, even though it is led by a foreigner. Gilani’s other group, Jamaat ul-Fuqra, is not listed by the State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The result is that MOA can operate at will in America. It is careful to not (usually) cross the edge into illegal activity that could jeopardize its existence.
Ali told Mawyer that MOA still engages in criminal activity, but he could not provide details because of his “immunity” agreement with the NYPD to prevent his own prosecution.
“I honestly believe that the primary focus of most members is to engage in criminal activity that brings money into the group—whether through unemployment fraud, selling illegal drugs, running brothels or even committing such small crimes as pick pocketing. Those funds go back to Sheikh Gilani in Pakistan,” Mawyer explained.
The most loyal members are privy to incriminating information, while others are kept in the dark. Promising members are given guerilla training, different stages of which occur in America and Pakistan. Ali was sent overseas to set up camps in foreign countries like Venezuela.
MOA and Gilani have responded to Mawyer’s book with legal jihad and deceptive answers that are so wild that they’re laughable.
Mawyer says that on January 6, the MOA told the New York Supreme Court that the organization was “fraudulently” created in 1985. In a January 29 statement, Gilani claimed he “was never president of MOA,” even though he’s on videotape talking about his MOA training camps.
Gilani claims that he was victimized by a “hit team” of the Muslim Brotherhood, including one that is a shape-shifter. Yes, a shape-shifter. And this Muslim Brotherhood shape-shifter took on his appearance in order to hijack MOA.
This gave me an idea, they could start a new reality show for content-hungry networks. They could call it “Muslim Makeover”. I bet it would be a smash hit. Now that Al Jazeera bought the Al Gore “Current”, there are probably slots available.
Shape-shifting Muslims, there’s one for the encyclopedia.
So its the United Muslim-Christian forum. What a crock.They are almost as good with creative names for groups as the Marxists are. Well, many terrorist Islamists share ties to Marxism.
