A senior official of the Muslims of the Americas/Jamaat ul-Fuqra(MOA), a terror-linked group, said during a deposition that it has a “community” outside Anchorage, Alaska. Officials also confirmed the existence of three communes in New York, California and Michigan that have yet to be publicly pinpointed.
The comments came during depositions of three senior MOA officials after the group sued two critics, Martin Mawyer and Patti Pierucci, for $30 million for their book about MOA titled Twilight in America.The judge dismissed the lawsuit last week. Astonishingly, MOA Deputy Director Hussein Adams, the son of terrorist Barry Adams,admitted he had no information to show that the defendants lacked areasonable basis for their claims.
The MOA officials repeatedly denied being a terrorist organization, but would not provide basic details about the group. Adams was especially secretive, claiming that the group had virtually no records and that he didn’t even know the names of those on Islamberg’s town council or who was paying the bills.
Other pinpointed communes include Islamberg in Hancock, NY;Holy Islamville in York County, South Carolina; Islamville in Dover, Tennessee; Hasanville in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, Canada; Madinah Village near Commerce, Georgia; Aliville in Odum, Georgia;Ahmadabad West in Red House, Virginia and one with an unknown name in Meherrin, Virginia.
Deputy Director Hussein Adams said that MOA has a “community” near Anchorage, Alaska. This is the first time that a MOA enclave has been reported in the state.
He also spoke of “Mariaville” located “just down the street” of Islamberg, New York. There is documentation of a village in Deposit, New York. Adams mentioned another site outside Los Angeles, substantiating reports of a village at Oak Hill, California. Another MOA official, Muhammed Hasib Abdul-Haqq, confirmed the existence of a site in Coldwater, Michigan.
There are likely more to be found. During his deposition, Adams claimed that only three villages (Islamberg, Mariaville and Holy Islamville) are “officially” part of his group. Another nine that he mentioned were “unofficial.” When confronted with how MOA says on its DVDs that it has 22 villages, he replied, “Well, maybe there were other locations included.”
The officials maintained that the group never engages in jihadtraining and downplayed the significance of two videos showing that the MOA network in the U.S. is used for guerilla training. The first shows Gilani saying that Muslims interested in such training should contact his offices in the U.S. The second tape shows women training inside Islamberg.
Adams said that he was not aware of any training like what’s seen in the Clarion tape since he arrived in Islamberg from Canada in 2000. He said there are no weapons storages in Islamberg, but “if there is, you’re referring to individuals’ personal firearms.” The interviewer then asked, “So there may be [weapons], but they would be individuals’ personal firearms?” He replied, “Correct.”
Abdul-Haqq said he had seen parts of the Clarion tape but had not seen “any actual training like that.”
“I know that they were doing things. They were going out there and marching and carrying on with some wooden sticks. Yeah, I know about that,” he said.
The third official to be deposed, Khadijah Smith, said she saw the footage released by Clarion and was asked whether she saw training like that taking place. She responded, “Self—we have self-defense classes, yes.”
The interviewer then commented that it looked more like military-type training. She answered:
“That’s in reference—that’s basically personal opinion, but I know that I’ve actually taken self-defense classes, as well as all the other ladies did.”
Smith compared the instruction to the type of self-defense classes that many women take. However, she then admitted she “briefly” gotfirearms instruction at Islamberg, but “I don’t know a whole lot about guns. I know how to shoot a rifle, not even a handgun.”
The level of advancement of MOA training is not the point. The point is that MOA is a secretive organization that, in the words ofdeclassified FBI report from 2007, “possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.” and “extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government.”
In a documentary titled Grand Deception, former FBI agent and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Nathan Garrett explains, “We’re not talking about a gun. We’re talking about the man holding the gun. How do you build him?”
Getting the gun is the easy part. Producing the extremist that uses the gun is the hard part. That’s what MOA and other Islamist indoctrinators are doing.
The terror group goes by the name of the Muslims of the Americas/Jamaat ul-Fuqra (MOA). They made the mistake of suing two of their critics, Martin Mawyer and Patti Peirucci, for statements made in their book about the MOA titled, “Twilight in America.”
Although the judge dismissed the lawsuit as baseless last week, some interesting information came out depositions conducted as part of the proceedings.
The depositions revealed that MOA has a previously unknown property outside of Anchorage, Alaska. They also confirmed the existence of an additional New York property, as well as California and Michigan locations.
The Deputy Director of MOA, Hussein Adams, is the son of terrorist Barry Adams. During questioning he was unable to provide evidence which would indicate a lack of reasonable basis for the defendants’ claims.
While MOA officials denied assertions that they are a terrorist organization, they refused to provide basic information regarding the group and their activities. They contended that the group kept no records, with director Adams asserting that he did not know the names of those on the town council at their flagship location, Islamberg. The identity of the person entrusted to issue checks to pay the organization’s bills was also unknown, according to director Adams.
MOA is the umbrella organization operating 22 “Islamic villages” nationwide, including “Mahmoudberg” in Sweeny, Texas.
Other “communes” dotted around the U.S. and Canada include not only the Islamberg facility in Hancock, NY but also Holy Islamville in York County, South Carolina; Islamville in Dover, Tennessee; Hasanville in Barry’s Bay, Ontario, Canada; Madinah Village near Commerce, Georgia; Aliville in Odum, Georgia; Ahmadabad West in Red House, Virginia and one with an unknown name in Meherrin, Virginia.
Less precise information was offered regarding the location near Anchorage, AK, as well as “Mariaville” which is supposedly “just down the street” from Islamberg, a Deposit, NY location, an Oak Hill, CA camp as well as Coldwater, MI.
Adams declared that only three of the locations, Islamberg, Mariaville and Holy Islamville were official MOA properties, with another nine described as unofficial. When questioned on the disparity between the twelve he identified in his deposition and a propaganda DVD which states there are 22 villages, Adams replied, “Well, maybe there were other locations included.”
The plaintiffs maintained throughout their testimony that the group does not engage in jihad training and dismissed as insignificant the content of two MOA videos. Both show ongoing training, one is a recruitment effort and the other shows women in training.
Adams insisted he “was not aware” of any training like that depicted on the tapes since his arrival at Islamberg in 2000. He claimed there were no weapons stored in Islamberg, other than the personal firearms of commune members. Adams acknowledged that individuals had their “personal” firearms.
