Jihadis training in your neighborhood?
Investigator describes setup as infrastructure for attack
One of the investigators who worked on a report about terror training camps operating inside the United States describes the network as no more or less than an infrastructure for attack.
WND previously reported on a documentary called "Homegrown Jihad: Terrorist Training Camps Around the U.S.," and how it offers evidence that "Muslims of America" operates a series of training camps in the U.S.
Jason Campbell is project manager for the Christian Action Network, which was behind the training camps investigation.
He described for WND some of his visits to the camps, which have been located in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma Michigan, Colorado, California and Washington.
"The one that really gets you concerned is in Georgia," he said. "You go down a road and all of a sudden it's just woods, and there are two roads that go straight down to the camp. It's dark because of the trees. And one of the roads is named Mecca and the other Medina."

"If there ever was an infrastructure for terrorism, this is it," he told WND.
He said the camps themselves are in remote areas with few neighbors, and mostly self-sufficient, such as having their own water supply and often food stores. They also are closed to outsiders, with the women sometimes taking off-campus jobs, but little other interaction.
"If you died there, they bury you there," he said. "There are no permits from the Department of Health…"
A video has been created describing the investigation:
Campbell also said the camps he's visited have a mosque and frequently the living conditions are "miserable."
The locations are run by Muslims of the Americas Inc., a tax-exempt organization, and it has been directly linked by court documents to Jamaat ul-Fuqra. The organization operates communes of primarily black, American-born Muslims throughout the U.S. The investigation confirmed members commonly use aliases and intentional spelling variations of their names and routinely deny the existence of Jamaat ul-Fuqra.

The group openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S., including the prison system. Members live in compounds where they agree to abide by the laws of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which are considered to be above local, state and federal authority.
U.S. authorities have probed the group for charges ranging from links to al-Qaida to laundering and funneling money into Pakistan for terrorist activities. The organization supports various terrorist groups operating in Pakistan and Kashmir, and follows Sheikh Mubarak Gilani.
He boasts of conducting "the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare."
The jihadist organization is thought to be responsible for nearly 50 attacks on American soil, but the U.S. government refuses to list it among foreign terrorists.
In a recruitment video captured from Gilani's "Soldiers of Allah," Gilani states in English: "We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America."
Jamaat ul-Fuqra is thought to have been responsible for the beheading murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in Pakistan.
The documentary called "Homegrown Jihad: Terrorist Training Camps Around the U.S." provides compelling evidence of how "Muslims of America" operates, and already has caught the attention of neighbors and local police officials.
Gilani's American headquarters is in Hancock, N.Y., where training is provided to recruits who are later sent to Pakistan for more jihadist paramilitary training, according to law enforcement authorities.
A Justice Department report to law enforcement agencies, prepared in 2006, provides a glimpse into how long Jamaat ul-Fuqra or "Muslims of America" has been operating inside the U.S.: "Over the past two decades, a terrorist group known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra, or 'Community of the Impoverished,' has been linked to multiple murders, bombings and various other felonies throughout the United States and Canada."
Gilani's "communes" are described by law enforcement as "classically structured terrorist cells."

As WND reported, a covert visit to a Jamaat ul-Fuqra encampment in upstate New York by the Northeast Intelligence Network found neighboring residents deeply concerned about military-style training taking place there but frustrated by the lack of attention from federal authorities.
Campbell told WND the compounds raise his concern because of their proximity in Georgia to a prison, in New York to a water supply and other such circumstances.
He said the information about the camps has come from law enforcement sources, from the organization's own investigation, and, tellingly, from information from insiders who have left.

Jihadist who abandoned violence for Christianity
Kamal Saleem was trained in terror starting at age 7 at a PLO assault camp, learning to know and hate his enemies, was indoctrinated in radical Islam on his mother's knee and studied with his father how to despise Christians and Jews.
He's told his story in the book, "The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption," as well as in a gripping DVD called "In the Red Chair," where he describes how he used to use his power – all of it – to change the world for Islam.
He dined with Moammar Gadhafi, his website says he served under Yasser Arafat and has Arab royalty in his family tree and he worked as a career mercenary, taking his terror activities worldwide. Ultimately, he was recruited by the Saudi royal family to infiltrate the United States with a campaign of radical Islam.
But Kamal Saleem now has renounced terrorism, adopted a home in America, found Christ and has spoken against terror and radical Islam at universities across the nation.
How could this change happen?
Actually, as he explains of his own life and its changes, it was a severe accident that broke his back and the love of a Jewish man, Jesus, that ultimately put him on the right course.
It is an amazing personal story that every Christian and every American should read: "The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption."
"My car was very small and it has a T-top, so when the 18-wheeler broad-sided me, I ejected from car and landed on my head in a mud hole upside down," he recalls.
"I cried out for Allah, but Allah didn't come to save me. I cried, 'Allah where are you?'" Saleem added.
Rescuers, doctors and hospital staff then introduced him to something he had never seen. He says he was shown the unconditional love of God, something that is foreign to Islam.
"In Islam, everything is conditional. For example, in the Quran, there is not one place where Allah says 'I love my people,' not once. The word love is not mentioned in the Quran," Saleem said.
In his surgeon's house, Saleem says he was amazed by the love everyone showed to him. He also says it was in the doctor's house that he also noticed something special about Christian marriage and the treatment of women.
"Women in our (Islamic) culture are nothing. They are equal to the goat or the rug. Her purpose is to be married to her husband to give him pleasure. When a husband marries a wife, he purchases her sexual organs," Saleem said.
Saleem has a warning for the Western world: "Islam is like a cancer. It grows and expands until it eventually consumes and suffocates the host."
He says his knowledge of the Muslim Brotherhood's mission and methods compels him to warn Americans about what is happening under the radar in their own country.
"The Muslim Brotherhood is here specifically to destroy the house of the United States of America and bring about the Islamic House and that's done by the Muslim's hand," Saleem explained.
"And it’s not the just the Muslims who came to the United States for this purpose, but also those they recruited in the United States as Americans and have turned them against this country."

Saleem adds by now Islam even has reached the sanctuaries of Christian churches and campuses of Christian colleges.
"Even in Christian schools today, you find Islamic history professors whose papers are done on the glory of Allah and Islam and Muhammad, right there on Christian universities," Saleem said.
"These guys are the first allies and the best allies to Islam. So, when someone speaks of Islam, they try to destroy the person's character instantly because they (the professor) have become a war machine," Saleem said.
Saleem says one of the most insidious ways jihad and Shariah law is infiltrating the U. S. is through the courts. He cites the recent Florida case in which a judge ordered Shariah law be used to settle a mosque leadership dispute.
"What they're trying to do is fake cases for Islam and these cases are done purposefully. We take an imam, there are two of them. They were fighting against each other and the fight was over a mosque," Saleem explained.
"That is so devious and it is part of the culture of Islamic invasion. These two imams are fighting over a mosque in Florida. Each imam says it belongs to me," Saleem said,
"One says I built it and I raised the funds. The other one says the Wahhabi government put me over here and they're the ones who sent the money. Both of them are right," Saleem continued.
"They went to the Supreme Court in Florida. What happened is that they said this was a Muslim matter and you need to judge us by Islamic Shariah law or you will not understand how these things work," Saleem added.
"Both of them are demanding to be judged by Shariah so now the Supreme Court is learning how Shariah works. So, in turn, they have instilled and indwelt Islamic laws with our laws," Saleem said.
Saleem says that the effort to install Shariah law into the United States should be treated like "any other act of terrorism because they are terrorizing this country."
Saleem says what's happening should be prayed against.
"That's what we need to speak against and pray against because it is the essence of evil." Saleem declared.
Read Kamal Saleem's story in the new book, "The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption," and watch him tell it firsthand in the new DVD called "In the Red Chair."

The Islamic Antichrist
Glenn Beck gave a big boost for an older WND Books product saying Americans should be alarmed over the revelations of "The Islamic Antichrist," in which author Joel Richardson documents the similarities between the "bad guy" of the Bible, the Antichrist, and the "good guy" of the Quran, the Mahdi.
Beck's promotion drove the 2-year-old book all the way up to the top 10 spot in Amazon rankings.
The author of "The Islamic Antichrist" contends the Antichrist and the Mahdi are, in fact, the same.
"You have to look at this, really ask yourself, 'Wow, is this true?'" Beck said.
He also cited the Islamic teachings that some Muslims like Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believe – that they can speed the coming of the Madhi, their end-times savior, by creating chaos, from which they expect him to emerge.
Beck, applying such a belief to Christianity, suggested, "What do you say we go start slaughtering people so Jesus will come back."
Read it for yourself, "The Islamic Antichrist."
Richardson's book discusses his analysis of the Bible's account of the end times and that of the Quran, including his conclusions about the "Antichrist," who is described by the Bible as the ultimate enemy of God and His people, the Jews and Christians. The Mahdi, meanwhile, in Islam is forecast to be someone who comes to establish a worldwide Islamic caliphate.
Following the broadcast, the book's ranking on Amazon shot up, hitting the top 10 among all books only hours later. It was rated No. 1 in books on theology and No. 3 in books on eschatology.

Beck cited a number of similarities between the prophecies, that of Jesus from the Bible and of the Mahdi in the Islamic tradition.
"You have the bad guy of the Bible, he primarily persecutes God's people, Jews and Christians," Richardson said. Meanwhile the "12th imam," or Islam's Mahdi, "causes Jews and Christians to submit to Islam or be killed."
Both prophecies call for a time of rule of 7 years, a leader of the world who makes peace with Israel, then breaks the accord, then invades Israel and kills nonbelievers, setting up a seat of government on the Temple Mount.
While the biblical Antichrist is evil personified, the culmination of antagonism to God and His word, Richardson described in a column for WND the Islamic perspective:
"The Mahdi is Islam's primary messiah figure Muslims believe will come at the end of the age to lead Islam to global dominance. Much popular discussion of Mahdism in recent years has inaccurately expressed that belief in the Mahdi is merely a Shia phenomenon. While variances in the details do exist between Sunni and Shia Muslims on this issue, belief in the Mahdi is nevertheless not reserved to one group or the other. Numerous renowned Muslim scholars, Sunni, Sufi and Shia affirm the orthodoxy of belief in the coming of the Mahdi."
Beck noted that the Mahdi story results in a character that is the "polar opposite" of the biblical prophecy, and another guest, Zuhdi Jasser, of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, agreed.
He described himself as moderate Muslim and said the belief that Muslims can speed the return of their savior is "toxic."
Richardson said, "In both stories, Jesus returns. On the biblical side, Jesus returns to deliver his people from being persecuted. On the Islamic, a Muslim Jesus tells the Christians of the world, 'You've had it wrong all along. I never said God was my father. I never died on the cross.'"
Beck played video of Ahmadinejad repeatedly saying during his speeches, "Oh God, hasten the arrival of Imam al-Madhi and grant him good health and victory."
That, Beck, said is the reason some Muslims seek chaos, and Richardson explained that is because it is from chaos they expect their Madhi to come.
Other commenters included retired Lt. Gen William G. Boykin, who said Iran's activities these days show it is "trying to establish themselves as the leader of the Islamic revolution."
And Richardson had noted in a recent WND column that when Iran launched a surface-to-surface missile, it had the words "Ya Mahdi" emblazoned on its body – the equivalent of "Go Mahdi."
Boykin noted Muslims believe their savior's return can happen only when "bloodshed and chaos" are worldwide.
"What circumstance," he questioned, would bring that about more quickly "than using nuclear weapons against the nation of Israel?"
Media Matters for America launched an immediate response, called, "Who is Joel Richardson, Beck's End Times Prophet?"
It noted that Beck's website has published writings by Richardson, and the author also appears in a new video by Beck that talks about the threat of a nuclear Iran to the U.S. and Israel.
Richardson's book also takes on the popular assumption among Christians that the Antichrist will come from a revived Roman Empire, which many have assumed is associated with the Roman Catholic Church and the European Union.
"The Bible abounds with proofs that the Antichrist's empire will consist only of nations that are, today, Islamic," Richardson explains. "Despite the numerous prevailing arguments for the emergence of a revived European Roman empire as the Antichrist's power base, the specific nations the Bible identifies as comprising his empire are today all Muslim."
Richardson believes the key error of many previous prophecy scholars involves the misinterpretation of a prediction by Daniel to Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel describes the rise and fall of empires of the future, leading to the end times. Western Christians have viewed one of those empires as Rome, when, claims Richardson, Rome never actually conquered Babylon and was thus disqualified as a possibility.
It had to be another empire that rose and fell and rose again that would lead to rule of this "man of sin," described in the Bible. That empire, he says, is the Islamic Empire, which did conquer Babylon and, in fact, rules over it even today.
Those who are unaware of the similarities of the prophecies for the Antichrist and the Mahdi will be stunned by chapters including "Islamic Eschatology," "The Sacred Texts of Islam," "Comparing the Biblical Antichrist and the Mahdi," and "The Dark Nature of Muhammad's Revelations."
The author is a human rights activist, lecturer and artist. He is also the co-author with Walid Shoebat of "God's War on Terror" and co-editor of "Why We Left Islam: Former Muslims speak out."

You won't believe where Christians in the Middle East are most threatened – Iraq! Find out why in "Facing Extinction: Assyrian Christians in Iraq." Each day thousands of Aramaic-speaking Assyrians (the language of Christ) are enduring unjust persecution because of their Christian Faith. The crew traveled into threatened Christian communities to film the stories in this program. Included is actual footage, filmed by the terrorists themselves, performing acts of violence against innocent Assyrians. The Iraqi government shows no interest in protecting the Christians, the Pentagon is ignoring the situation, and the United States State Department has no mandate allowing Assyrian Christians to immigrate to America. These conditions are the making of another twenty-first century holocaust involving hundreds of thousands of Christians. The future of Assyrian Christians in Iraq rests with us all. Narrated by Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ).
Commentary by United States Sen. Carl Levin, Rep. Anna Eshoo, and Rep. Frank Wolf.
- A new video about the martyrdom of three Christian workers at the hands of Islamic activists in Turkey reveals that while the government's case against the alleged killers continues in turmoil and confusion, the Christian community in the Muslim nation views the tragedy as the will of God. "Malatya," available now as the April 18 fourth anniversary of the deaths approaches, is from Austin Stone Community Church, Voice of the Martyrs and Family Christian Movies. It tells the story of the martyrdom of Necati Aydin, Tilman Geske and Ugur Yuksel. The three, who were working
at a Christian publishing house, had agreed to meet with several young Muslim men who expressed interest in the Bible. Authorities have reported the Muslims first demanded that one of the Christians convert to Islam. When he refused, they pulled knives and tied up, tortured and stabbed the Christians for several hours before their throats were slit. WND has reported on the case since the widow of one of the slain Christians created a tidal wave of reaction in Turkey by expressing forgiveness for the attackers. The dramatic video story is available for only $4.95 from the WND Superstore.
- Then there's the classic "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" updated for the 21st century. You can get it in a beautiful faux leather version for your library, or a more economic paperback edition. For nearly 2,000 years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. But martyrdom is not a thing of the past; every day the Christian church is persecuted in countries all over the world. The affliction of Christians was actually more prevalent in the 1900s than in all the past centuries
combined. You will get a poignant illustration of these recent martyrs in this book. In addition to the age-old stories of Christian heroes, this updated edition of Foxe's Book of Martyrs contains stories of persecution up to 2001. John Foxe began his memorial of martyrs in 1563. He began with Stephen, the first to die for the cause of Christ, and ended with the most recent martyrs of his day; those killed during the reign of Bloody Mary. Foxe was motivated to write by the fear of forgetting or becoming insensitive to the struggles of the martyrs. He knew that Christians must not overlook the persecution of their brothers and sisters in Christ. For if the Church is not reminded of the cost of following Christ, its very foundations will crumble. The courage, faith, and love of the martyrs will touch your life. For nearly two-thousand years, courageous men and women have been tortured and killed because of their confessions of Jesus Christ as Lord and
Savior. This updated version includes reports on modern martyrs of the 20th and 21st century, a full color timeline of selected events and people for historical reference, and has been carefully edited into Modern American English for today's reader
- "First Comes Saturday, Then Comes Sunday" is the award-winning documentary by Pierre Rehov, a French filmmaker known for going where the action is – especially in the dangerous Middle East. Why has there been a great-and-little-reported Christian exodus from the Middle East, with some 2 million fleeing in the past 20 years alone? This Christian exodus is a result of many factors, including the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians, the related decline of the economy, but perhaps most significantly, the religious persecution these Christians encounter from their Muslim neighbors. "First Comes Saturday, Then Comes Sunday" is a well known sentence in the Middle East meaning : "First we
take care of the Jews (who pray on Saturday) then we will take care of Christians," the "Sunday people."
