Preliminary Investigative Report Jamaat ul-Fuqra: Terrorists in Our Midst?
Interim Investigative Report
REPORT UPDATED SUMMER 2006 Report includes blistering response from Pakistani Sheikh Mubarak Gilani himself
Date: 12 February 2006 Report by: Douglas J. Hagmann “CP,” Investigative Reporter Northeast Intelligence Network Owner: “The Politics of “CP” P.O. Box 9534 Internet: http://politicsofcp.blogspot.com/ Erie, PA 16505-8534 E-Mail: email@example.com Internet: www.HomelandSecurityUS.com E-Mail: director@HomelandSecurityUS.com The following report details the findings of a cooperative investigative project between investigative reporter and researcher “CP” and the Northeast Intelligence Network. The identity of “CP” will remain anonymous due to ongoing covert investigative projects. (Updated summer 2006)
For the last several months, “CP,” an independent investigative reporter, researcher and Internet “Blogger” has reportedly extensively on the Pakistani terrorist organization Jamaat al-Fuqra and their presence within the United States in the form of encampments or isolated compounds. The independent research findings of “CP” that confirm that Jamaat al Fuqra maintains a presence within the borders of the United States has been extensively validated. “CP” has publicly reported investigative findings on his Internet Blog at http://politicsofcp.blogspot.com/ Concurrent with the investigation conducted by “CP,” the Northeast Intelligence Network has been independently investigating the presence and operations of various Islamic schools and compounds inside the U.S. that appear to be acting as militant training facilities and providing support to Islamic terrorists. Their findings have been widely reported on their Internet web site at www.homelandsecurityus.com. “CP” and the Northeast Intelligence Network have combined resources and joined forces to advance the investigation into the presence and activities of Jamaat ul Fuqra inside the United States. The following is presented as an interim report on the combined investigative findings of “CP” and the Northeast Intelligence Network. NOTICE: Permission to reprint and republish this report is granted as long as the report is reprinted or republished without edit, in its entirety, and with proper attribution to both “CP” and the Northeast Intelligence Network and their respective Internet web sites as listed above.
PROFILE: Jamaat ul-Fuqra (JF)
Jamaat ul-Fuqra (JF) or "community of the impoverished", a terrorist organization operating in Pakistan and North America, was formed by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarik Gilani, (a/k/a Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, pictured at left) in New York in 1980. GILANI also refers to himself as “the sixth Sultan Ul Faqr.” The stated objective of the JF, according to GILANI, is to “purify” Islam through violence. While Gilani is primarily based in Lahore, Pakistan, the organization’s operational headquarters in the U.S.
Organizational Ideology & Structure
Jamaat ul-Fuqra (JF), a/k/a Al Fuqra was established and organized to counter “excessive Western influence on Islam” through any means necessary, publicly embracing the ideology that violence was a significant aspect in its quest to purify Islam. JF has identified the enemies of Islam as ALL non-Muslims and ANY Muslim who does not follow the tenets of fundamentalist Islam as detailed in the Qu’ran. A document written by GILANI and published by the Qu’ranic Open University in the U.S. instructed his followers that their primary duty was to wage Jihad against the “oppressors of Muslims,” namely those who are identified as enemies of Islam by the criteria detailed above. Members of the group have been consistently described as Islamist extremists with extreme animosity toward their enemies. Jamaat ul-Fuqra openly recruits its members through various social service organizations in America, including “religious” recruitment from the prison systems, (A large segment of JF members have been convicted of criminal acts, including murder and fraud) and selects individuals to live in compounds operated by agents of the group. Those individuals then agree to abide by the laws of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra which are considered to be above local, state and U.S. federal laws. Senior members are sworn to enforce the laws of the group. Currently, the organization appears to consist of over two-dozen “Jamaats,” or private communities that are loosely connected and scattered throughout the United States and has an estimated 5,000 members inside the United States. An investigation of the group conducted by the Colorado Attorney General's Office in the early 1980’s found that several of the JF communities actually operate covert paramilitary training compounds, one of which had been located in a mountainous area near Buena Vista, Colorado and another that has been identified through this investigation – their organizational headquarters in Hancock, New York. A primary “front” for the terrorist organization was determined to be the Muslims of the Americas, Inc., and its school known as the International Qu’ranic Open University, Inc., having its primary base of operations at 2732 Roods Creek Road, Hancock, (Delaware County), New York 13783. The following is an image that references the International Qu’ranic Open University, Inc., noting that academic courses are conducted via “audio and video cassettes and correspondence:”
The headquarters is situated on secluded land on the western edge of southeast of the city of Binghamton, New this facility is known as “ISLAMBERG” as
approximately 70 acres of remote and the Catskill Mountains, about 40 miles York. On-site investigation confirmed that depicted in the following image:

The following are map references to the JF base of operations in Hancock, New York:
The image below is an aerial overview of the Hancock, New York location:
The front organization for Jamaat ul Fuqra, the Muslims of the Americas, Inc. has been directly linked by court documents to that terrorist organization. The Muslims of the Americas is a tax-exempt organization formed in the US in 1980 by GILANI and operates communes of primarily black, American-born Muslims throughout the United States. Investigation confirmed that its members commonly use aliases and intentional spelling variations of their names, and routinely deny the existence Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Its members have been known to travel to Pakistan for paramilitary training, training in the use of weapons and explosives, and “survivalist training,” although this investigation found evidence to suggest that the current encampments inside of the U.S., specifically the location in Hancock, NY offers such training so members do not have to risk travelling abroad following the increased scrutiny ushered in by the September 11, 2001 attacks against America. Jamaat ul-Fuqra members have purchased isolated rural properties in North America to live as a community, practice their faith, and insulate themselves from Western culture. The group has established rural encampments that US authorities allege are linked to murder, bombings and other felonies throughout North America.
Links to Terrorism & Terrorist Activities
Jamaat ul-Fuqra has been investigated by US authorities for charges ranging from links to al Qaeda to laundering and funnelling money into Pakistan to finance terrorist activities. The organization supports various terrorist groups operating in Pakistan and Kashmir. Sheikh Gilani himself is directly linked to HAMAS and Hezbollah. Throughout the 1980s, JF was responsible for a number of terrorist acts across the United States, including numerous fire-bombings. Research of incident reports found that the early targets of JF in North America were ethnic Indians and targets linked to various Indian sects. In July 1983, Stephen Paul PASTER, a front ranking JF member, was responsible for planting a pipe bomb at a Portland hotel owned by followers of the Bhagwan Rajneesh cult. Following his arrest in Colorado, PASTER served four years of a 20-year prison sentence for the bombing. He was also suspected in two other bombings in Seattle in 1984: the bombings of the Vedanta Society temple and the Integral Yoga Society building. Current intelligence suggests that PASTER is now based in Lahore, Pakistan where he trains Fuqra members in the use of weapons and explosives. Following the Portland bombing, two Fuqra members reportedly killed Mozaffar AHMAD, a leader of the minority Ahmadiyyah sect in Canton, Michigan. Both suspects in the murder, however, were reportedly killed by a fire they later set at the Ahmadiyyah mosque in Detroit, Michigan. The JF is also suspected in a series of fire bombings of Hindu and Hare Krishna temples in Seattle, Denver, Philadelphia and Kansas City.
During a search of a storage locker in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1989, federal agents recovered a large cache of weapons, ammunition and documents linked directly to Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Found were numerous handguns, semi-automatic firearms, explosives, pipe bombs, bomb components and several larger bombs. Some of the seized documents described the activities and code of the "Muhammad Commandos of Sector 5," who were reportedly involved in arms training and intelligence gathering. The documents included maps, lists of targets (facilities and individuals) in Los Angeles, Arizona and Colorado. The named targets included oil and gas installations and electrical facilities, U.S. Air Force Academy and other military sites, individuals in 12 states and Canada. Publications issued by JF were also seized during this search and included "Guerrilla Warfare", "Counter Guerrilla Operations", "Understanding Amateur Radio", and "Fair Weather Flying," and "Basic Blueprint Reading and Sketching." In 1991, five operatives of Jamaat ul-Fuqra failed in their attempt to bomb a cinema and a Hindu temple near Toronto, Ontario Canada and were arrested at the Niagara Falls border crossing. Customs agents found evidence and plans of the intended targets and bomb-making instructional manuals. A Canadian jury convicted three American JF members of conspiracy to commit mischief and endanger life while a fourth suspect, who arrived in Canada from Pakistan shortly before the planned bombing, fled to Pakistan after the arrest of his colleagues. Jamaat ul-Fuqra was linked in a Congressional testimony to the planning of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. An individual who was convicted for his role in the bombing, Clement Rodney Hampton-el, was admittedly a member of Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Various members of the terrorist organization are suspects in at least 10 unsolved assassinations and 17 firebombing cases between 1979 and 1990. The founder of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, Sheikh Mubarik Gilani, was formerly in Pakistani custody for the abduction of US journalist Daniel Pearl. Intelligence sources have determined that Daniel Pearl was attempting to meet with Gilani in the days before he disappeared in Karachi. Pakistani police arrested Gilani on 30 January 2002 and detained a number of his associates. Further, intelligence sources suggest a link between Jamaat ul Fuqra and Richard REID, the now infamous “shoe bomber” who attempted to ignite explosives in his shoe while aboard a Paris-toMiami passenger aircraft on 22 December 2001.
Activities in Fraud & Weapon Acquisition
Colorado law enforcement agencies convicted five members of Jamaat ul-Fuqra for defrauding the Colorado government of approximately $350,000 through bogus workers’ compensation claims. That amount was laundered through the Professional Security International (PSI), a Jamaat ul-Fuqra security firm, and Muslims of the Americas, where some of the money was sent to Pakistan. The licensed security firm in New York enabled terrorist operatives to secure federal licenses to purchase (and carry) weapons. Additional licensed security firms, based in New York, are also tied to the terrorist group. Page 7
A security firm referenced by the National White Collar Crime (NW3C) report as an organization associated with Jamaat ul-Fuqra is “786 Security” located in Brooklyn, NY. It is operated by Husain M. ABDALLAH who has been identified as one of the early organizers of ul-Fuqra. It is notable that the company is based in Brooklyn, where Sheikh GILANI began his American recruitment efforts. According to records from the New York Secretary of State, "786 Security" is an inactive listing; the company is now listed under ABDALLAH’S name as shown below:
INVESTIGATIVE NOTE: Other companies associated with Jamaat ul-Fuqra and its front organizations are known to investigators but are purposely omitted from this report. Investigative research to document the complex audit trails and thus the ties to Jamaat ul-Fuqra is currently in progress.
Field Investigation: Jamaat ul Fuqra Headquarters
2732 Roods Creek Road, Hancock, New York 13783 “ISLAMBERG”
Above: Image taken on 9 February 2005 of “Moslem Road” as viewed from Roods Creek Road. Note the “guard shack” located on the right side of the snow-covered dirt access road and the separate pole ahead of the appurtenant structure. The purpose of the (apparent) electronic device affixed to top front of the pole remains unknown.
Douglas J. Hagmann, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network and multi-state licensed private investigator and other operatives conducted a covert field investigation on Wednesday, 8 February and Thursday, 9 February 2006. The focus of the investigation was the encampment located at the address listed above, which is the purported headquarters for the organizations having documented ties to the terrorist organization Jamaat ul Fuqra. Covert surveillance of the activities at this location was intermittently performed on both dates. Ancillary investigation was conducted concurrent to the surveillance. The following is a detailed summary of the results of the investigation and surveillance operation.
The compound known as “Islamberg” is situated on approximately 70 acres of heavily wooded land in a remote and secluded area of Delaware County, NY, about midway between the towns of Hancock and Deposit, NY and approximately 40 miles south-east of the city of Binghamton, New York. Primary access to the compound is an unmarked road known as (and labeled on county and state maps as) “Moslem Road,” which is a 1 ½ lane dirt access road that leads east from Roods Creek Road into the compound. Situated prominently on this access road is a wooden structure that can be described as a typical “guard shack,” having a single door facing the road (north) and windows on each side of the structure. At the time of this investigation, at least one Black male, armed with a weapon, was observed inside of this structure. A wooden 4x4 pole was noted approximately 20’ west of the guard shack. An unknown type of electronic device was noted to be affixed near the top of the pole facing west, or pointed to incoming vehicular and pedestrian traffic. There appeared to be a plastic covering over the face of the device, preventing inspection of its contents. Also noted was a bank of about 50 unmarked mailboxes housed in a wooden frame are located just south of the main access road. The compound consists of numerous mobile homes and generally dilapidated wood frame structures used as single-family dwellings, although some appear to be occupied by more than one family. The various structures, approximately 50-75 in number) are tucked into heavily wooded areas that are situated on the side of a large hill that forms a natural boundary to the east. Privately owned property abuts the compound on the north and south sides of the compound, and by Roods Creek Road to the west. There are other notable access points that appear to have been constructed by the residents of the compound, although the purpose and popularity of their use is unknown. Two larger, recently built or reconstructed structures are located within the encampment, both appearing to be on the north side of the primary access road. These buildings appear capable of holding up to 100 people at a time, although their actual or intended use is not known and the interiors of the structures were not viewed by investigators. Based on information obtained from area sources, however, these buildings are believed to be used for religious training, education and meeting purposes. It is important to note that private driveways are present throughout the 70acre compound, leading to the various structures described above. The driveways and roads are primitive at best, making normal travel somewhat hazardous. A clearing exists north of the access road, not visible from the road or any other publicly accessible vantage position. An inspection of this area conducted by investigators found what is an obvious weapons firing range, complete with a target area (against the hillside) and shooting areas on the west side. This area appears to have been recently used based on a closer inspection of this area.
Perhaps as significant as the weapons range, an area near the eastern perimeter of the property – on the hillside – appears to be a military-style training area, including ropes hung from tree limbs, an obstacle course, wooden fences for scaling, and other items and structures one would reasonably expect to find in a “boot-camp” type setting. This area also appears to have been used recently. It should also be noted that the property owned by this organization is located within close proximity to the Cannonsville Reservoir and Watershed Area, which is one of several water supply sources servicing New York City and adjacent areas. SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES OBSERVED Surveillance was conducted using a variety of methods and from various locations. It is important to note that there appears to be men who are designated to provide “security” for the compound. One male was posted inside the guard shack at the primary entrance, while others, walking in pairs and each armed with at least one rifle, appeared to watch the open perimeters of the encampment. The men were not in any type of uniform and except for the sentry inside of the guard shack, were not readily visible from any public vantage position. At intermittent times during the covert surveillance, investigators observed numerous Black males, all appearing to range in age from 18-40, walking throughout the compound. At least two of these individuals were armed with rifles. Investigators also observed approximately a dozen different females – all appearing to be residents of the structures located within the camp, and approximately the same number of minor children in their company walking within the confines of this area. Their activities were not immediately determined, although most appeared to be social in nature. Several teenage boys were observed together in an area on the southernmost area of the compound, apparently engaged in some type of recreational event. A number of motor vehicles were present on the property, most of which possessed New York license plates. A large sampling of the tag numbers from these vehicles indicated that the plates were either expired or invalid. The expired plates were registered to individuals across the state of New York. The presence of armed guards and other factors – including but not limited to the apparent existence of other security devices around the perimeter of the property – prevented investigators from securing useable videotape of these activities at this compound without the high risk of exposure and potential confrontation. Nonetheless, ample documentation exists and is being maintained by investigators to verify the observations as detailed above. At various times on both dates, vehicular traffic was observed randomly arriving and leaving this compound. All of the vehicles were occupied by Black males dressed in normal casual attire. Due to the rural nature of the area, mobile surveillance of the vehicles was not conducted. Page 11
Although no activity of extreme significance was observed (the presence of armed sentries guarding the perimeter of the compound excluded) during this period of surveillance, it was obvious that measures to insure that the activities taking place at this location were well insulated from public view. As it is possible that the surveillance operations could have been exposed by electronic or visual means at some point before the completion of the surveillance, it is possible that the activities of the compound occupants might have been adjusted accordingly. INTERVIEWS WITH AREA RESIDENTS Most of the properties on Roods Creek Road are spaciously divided or of seasonal use; as such, the number of immediate neighbors of the compound were limited. Nonetheless, investigators successfully interviewed six area residents (excluding law enforcement sources) for information about the encampment and activities taking place at that location. Information obtained from each of these sources – all who requested anonymity for the purpose of this report – was consistent in content. The summary of information obtained is outlined below: 1. The encampment has been in operation for at least 20 years, and appears to maintain a steady level of occupancy. Each source confirmed the existence of at least one armed guard at the main entrance, especially during “special events” that take place at this location and result in a significant number of visitors by vehicle. These “special events” appear to be meetings or religious services held within the compound. 2. Nearly every weekend, (either Saturday or Sunday), sound of gunfire can be heard from the camp. According to one male who stated he is a combat veteran of the Vietnam War, some of the weapons are obviously “automatic” and large-caliber weapons. On at least two occasions last summer, small explosions were heard by area residents. 3. The occupants of the compound disallow anyone not affiliated with their organization from entry into the encampment. All of the residents stated that they have never observed any marked law enforcement vehicle enter the compound at any time. 4. Visitors to the compound are numerous and frequent; all visitors appear to be Black males operating late model vehicles, mostly Sports Utility Vehicles, and many possess license plates from Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina and Tennessee. 5. At least once each week, private deliveries of unknown items are made to the camp by unmarked box-style trucks. The trucks are usually present at the compound for 2-3 hours at a time, and are also operated by Black males or men of apparent Middle Eastern origin. 6. Men of Middle Eastern origin appear to be “frequent guests” of the encampment, many attired in traditional Islamic attire. Some appear to stay at the encampment for 3-4 days or longer. During periods of these visits, activity and security at the compound is noticeably heightened. Page 12
Each area resident interviewed by investigators expressed a deep concern over the activities taking place at this encampment, and fear that if they make any reports to law enforcement, the residents will retaliate against them. Stated one resident: “We see children – small children run around over there when they should be in school. We hear bursts of gunfire all of the time, and we know that there is military like training going on there. Those people are armed and dangerous. We get nothing but menacing looks from the people who go in and out of the camp, and sometime they yell at us to mind our own business when we are just driving by. We don’t even dare to slow down when we drive by. They own this mountain and they know it, and there is nothing we can do about it but move, and we can’t even do that. Who wants to buy property next to that?” Every resident interviewed expressed disappointment and additional concern that federal law enforcement is not investigating the activities at this location. Stated one additional resident: “These people need to be investigated. They are training for war, either for war here in this country or against our troops. Who in the hell is allowing this stuff to happen right here in our own backyard, and why?”
Based on the extensive research of the group Jamaat ul Fuqra and their “front” organizations, our on-site investigation, surveillance findings and other factors not detailed in this interim report, it is obvious that the activities that are taking place within this encampment are intended to be insulated from the public. Additionally, open source reports, confirmed by additional investigation, determined that a number of the residents of this compound work for the New York State Thruway, are tollbooth operators in the New York City area, and are also employed at a nearby data processing center that processes credit card transactions and maintains vital confidential financial records. Based on the findings as detailed within this report, it is apparent that additional investigation by the appropriate law enforcement authorities is required. The appropriate action must be taken now to insure the safety and security of the United States, or it is certain that we will be forced to deal with the consequences should we choose not to do so at this time. Lessons have been learned from terrorist attacks that have struck America and Americans over the last two decades, and previous intelligence failures have been identified. We know that it is the intent of our enemy to destroy us, but will we allow our destruction to be from within?

VIOLENT INCIDENTS INVOLVING JAMAAT UL FUQRA IN THE U.S.
Source: National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) Report – “Identifying the Links Between White-Collar Crime and Terrorism”
Response from Sheikh Mubarik Gilani Message from Lahore, Pakistan
The preceding report that was published on the Internet on 12 February 2006 by the Northeast Intelligence Network at www.HomelandSecurityUS.com resulted in an unprecedented response from Sheikh Mubarak Gilani himself – from Lahore, Pakistan.
The following is the information published by Pakistani Sheikh Gilani via his web site at: http://www.iqou-moa.org/editorial/terror_roots.htm
His Eminence Sultan Muhyuddin Sheikh Syed Mubarik
Exposing Roots of Terrorism In U.S.
On the 12th of February, a so-called ‘interim investigative report’ by an unknown private individual who called himself ‘CP’ investigator and Douglas J. Hagmann , with the internet address, www.homelandsecurityus.com, was released. This highly questionable report about Muslims of the Americas (MOA), their town Islamberg, NY, the International Quranic Open University (IQOU), and the Vice Chancellor of IQOU, is a small part of a campaign of hate, fabricated falsehood, lies, and appalling propaganda aimed at bringing about a clash between Muslims and Christians the world over, and particularly in the United States (U.S.) As the Imam of the Muslims of the Americas and Vice Chancellor of IQOU, I take this opportunity to expose this recurring scheme of deception and falsehood conjured up by vested interests.The compilers of this report, CP/Hagmann, assert the claim of the existence of an alleged “Jamaat-ul-Fuqra”, placing me as its head. For the past 25 years I, and the members of MOA, and the staff of IQOU at Islamberg, have adamantly denied knowledge of any such organization in the U.S., Pakistan, or elsewhere. In order to uphold and sustain one lie, one has to use hundreds of arguments. In this regard I am going to prove that Douglas J. Hagman and his group are the actual perpetrators of international terrorism, and racial and religious bigotry and their ceaseless campaign of hate, is more damaging to the U.S. than any other country. The U.S. has become a pawn of hidden hands that use America’s wealth and the innocent blood of their sons and daughters to wage their wars against Muslims. In World War II, observe how they managed to lure the U.S. into the war by concealing the Japanese secret code. This gave the green light to the Japanese to invade the U.S. at Pearl Harbor. This played an integral role in swaying public opinion towards opposing Hitler, eventually pushing the U.S. into the war.
It is obvious that Mr. Hagman is employed by those whose aim is to focus on creating hatred between Muslims and Christians in America. Their method is to facilitate unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, against one of the most peaceful and patriotic communities in the U.S.—Muslims of the Americas. One such peaceful and patriotic community is Islamberg, which is a Muslim village where the residing families are encouraged to foster good relations with their neighbors. MOA, the IQOU, and their respective villages and campuses regularly host government officials. Sheriffs, mayors, and FBI representatives have been invited to join the MOA village residents during seasonal sports events, cultural/religious activities and festive dinners. MOA villages and campuses are open for all to come and see for themselves. We would like Mr. Hagmann to address the following: On September 11th, about 100 MOA Boy Scouts belonging to MOA/IQOU were assisting the rescue and relief effort, on site, at Ground Zero, World Trade Center. They were surprised to learn, later, that some 4000 Jews employed at the WTC were conveniently absent on the 11th of September.
• • •
The glaring question arises: How is it that they all came to be absent on that fateful day? Who were those people arrested on the New Jersey side by the FBI while videotaping the crash of the airplane? Why did building No. 7 collapse when it was clear that it was not hit by any airplane?
Mr. Hagmann do you have any answers to these questions? Put the responses on your website and let the American public decide for themselves who the real terrorists are. Let people decide. Are the Muslim Boy Scouts of MOA/IQOU to be feared or rather those shadowy ‘insiders’ who destroyed these buildings? Their hope, to bring about a clash of civilizations, in order to realize their global empire, failed. And so too, their aim to blame the Muslims, will fail. There is no benefit for American Muslims to destroy their own country or civilization and to clash with their Christian brethren.
Our university has been busy developing very close ties with many Christian groups, We work hard to promote co-operation and peaceful dialogue between Muslims and Christians. Below are some of the MOA and IQOU activities that Mr. Hagmann failed to mention.
Muslim Boy Scouts at New Orleans
“On Friday, September 30, 2005, the MOA Boy Scouts were called for duty, once again, to aid in an humanitarian disaster relief effort. The scouts were swift to respond when they learned assistance was needed. Within hours, responsible young men from six states were en route. Scouts assembled, pooled resources, and went forth for the sake of humanity, to aid in the Katrina relief effort. Scouts had to undergo extreme difficulties and sacrifices to assist those fellow Americans severely impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Their first task was to offer relief to devastated individuals and familes in Slidell, Louisiana at a community Christian church. The kindheartedness of Muslims and their hard work overcame the anxieties of the people and instead, became a catalyst for a better understanding between the two parties. The Muslim Boy Scouts teamed with a Christian group, ( PRC), and together they continued to render assistance to flood victims. This team demonstrated brotherhood in action. Satisfaction for the relief efforts was summed up by a statement from an elderly Christian lady, Ms. Mary Ann Gordon, who emotionally remarked with a smile, “I’m going to tell everyone that the Muslims came and blessed my house.”
American Muslim Medical & Relief Team (AMMRT)
When the world’s most deadly earthquake hit northern Pakistan, American Muslims of IQOU and MOA formed a relief and medical team and within days doctors, surgeons, and paramedics reached out and took charge of the orthopedic and burn wards of Ayyub Medical Hospital Complex at Abbotabad in North West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan. The following is a list of the Muslim participants:
• • • • • • • • • • • •
Dr. Almas Sheikh (M.D., General Surgeon) Dr. Naeemah Ghafur (M.D.) Dr. Jemille Smith (M.D.) Bashir A. Wadud (P.A.) Aisha Muhammad (R.N.) Bilqees Aziz-Abdallah (R.N.) Um Tabari (R.N.) Fatimah Terborg (R.N.) Bilqees Abdallah (L.P.N.) Lillie Vaughn (L.P.N.) Atiyyah Powell (R.N.A.) Qasim Wasi (E.M.T.)
The AMMRT worked day and night to treat the earthquake victims, many of whom were children. They treated burns as well as various injuries: infected wounds, broken bones, amputations, and pneumonia (a result of exposure to the elements). The team arrived with medications, food, tents, bed sheets, and quilts purchased in the United States. Everywhere they went they won over the hearts of the people. It become clear that this sentiment was an unprecedented experience as Pakistanis regarded the AMMRT as goodwill ambassadors for America. This example of humanitarian aid is not an isolated incident. Similar efforts were undertaken to assist the victims of the tsunami in Asia. Contrast the events above to false allegations that American Muslims went to Pakistan for military training is one of the ongoing lies which originated with Mossad agent, Yosef Bodanski’s report, later published in book form. Rather, Yosef Bodanski, himself, worked covertly, for Israel, through 80 NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations) in Peshawar situated near the border of Afghanistan. Once again, it was not in the interest of the US to become involved in the insurgency in Afghanistan. The U.S. was manipulated by the Masons whose sinister scheme was to free Jews from USSR, facilitating their immigration to Israel. In this, both Masons and Mossad played a major role. One can cite dozens of such examples but a few will be sufficient to expose the evil, inhumane designs of hidden hands wherein lie the roots of terrorism. Here a brief note about myself would be most appropriate. I am a Sufi and the head of the Qadria Sufi Order established by my ancestor, Sultan Mohyddin Abdul Qadir El-Gilani of Baghdad. My title is Sultan of Qadria Order and thousands of people address me as “O Sultan of Walis, Sultan of Arifeen.” Those who wish to insult me call me Sultan of Fuqra which means “Prince of Paupers”. People may say what they like, but my title remains Sultan of Qadria Order. In 1976, I was requested by the Saudi Arabian government to help them scientifically prove the powers and effects of the Holy Qur’an on human beings, plants, and animals, for the benefit of a team of researchers present for the demonstration. This was a project sponsored by the World Health Organizaion in Taif. in 1976-77, and applauded for its success in the daily ‘Alnadwa’. I was able to heal 39 ‘incurable’ mental patients as well as demonstrate the effects of the words of Almighty God on living and non-living things. Readers are invited to peruse the publications: The Ultimate Fraud of Freudists, Book 1: Quranic Psychiatry; Book 2: Psychiatry, the Ultimate Betrayal, NY: IQOU, 1999, and the shorter journal, Introduction to El-Gilani Methodology, 2003). In 1978, I toured England, giving talks in Maudly Hospital (London), on mental diseases and their remedies. By the end of 1979, I decided to introduce my methodology term “EGM” (El-Gilani Methodology) to the hospital environment in the U.S. The following are cases of patients who were cured using the EGM Methodology:
“King Fahad sent the son of his Chief bodyguard for treatment to neurologists who failed to revive him for five days. El Sheikh revived him in 15 minutes. Sheikh Gilani met the challenge of his opponent who said, “He can’t revive dead cells”. By God’s Mercy and Help, he revived a brain-dead patient who was given 48 hours to live, and who was under the care of Dr. Davis in Germantown hospital (Philadelphia). The patient was then treated by Dr. Wadud and was revived using the El-Gilani Methodology. In June 2002, a patient suffering from the severe effects of Sickle-Cell Anemia was cured and discharged from Lourdes hospital (New York) 5 days after he had been given 48 hours to live. A patient possessed by an entity that prevented her from having relations with her husband, was given water to drink that contained special prayers and Divine Words as prescribed by El-Sheikh Gilani. Immediately, a black smoky figure was seen leaving the woman, and the couple’s marital relationship was restored.” * * Four more documented EGM cases In order to introduce Islamic sciences, in 1982, I established the International Quranic Open University; the Muslims Of Americas was also established at the same time. While visiting Brooklyn I realized that if Muslims were allowed to continue to live in that environment relying on social services assistance, they would never be able to realize purposeful, honorable lives. Prior to my arrival, many anti-social acts were being committed in the name of Islam. I declared welfare forbidden for every healthy, ablebodied person. People were to be reformed, educated, and provided with jobs, in place of receiving income from social services. I moved them out from the ghettoes of many major American cities, purchasing property in rural areas, with the intent of establishing serene Muslim villages. Since then, other Islamic organizations have followed our example. It was a great challenge on the part of the people to leave their dependency on government assistance. I lived with them at that time, during this time of great adjustment, sharing their lean times. We had a better opportunity to protect our loved ones from the menace of crime and drugs, more prevalent in the big city environment. As with most reformist organizations there are those that are resistant to change. Such individuals were encouraged to completely separate themselves from us. Therefore, MOA/IQOU no longer had any responsibility for their actions. Mr. Hagmann’s charges are not at all original. They are no more than a regurgitation of the slur campaign of Mossad agent, Yosef Bodanski’s. This maliciousness has led to instances of violence being perpetrated against more than five members of our organization—hate crimes.
For one, we cite the more recent case of Mr. Irving “Deen” Warner. On the morning of Sunday, October 31, 2004, Mr. Warner was struck from the rear of his vehicle by a drunk driver. The circumstances of this “accident” are both dreadful and reprehensible. Mr. Warner’s vehicle was struck, left the road, struck a tree on the right shoulder and reentered the roadway before leaving the roadway again, going through a wooded area, entering a golf course, striking another tree and bursting into flames. Three witnesses tried desperately to free Mr. Warner, who at the time had received massive trauma and was begging for help. They were unable to because he was hopelessly pinned inside his car. The most deplorable thing for the family to accept is that the defendant in this case, Mr. Jeremiah Q. McBride, has never to this day been arrested. Moreover, by their own admission, the officers at the scene of this horrendous crime (Trooper Kenny Harrison and Lt. Orville Lewis of the Tennessee Highway Patrol) stated in their report stated that Mr. McBride reeked of alcohol. Additionally, the first witness, Mrs. Grethe E. Gunderson, told a very compelling story by telephone to attorneys for the family. She stated the details of the encounter and said she personally told the police officers at the scene what she witnessed. She saw the defendant staggering from his vehicle towards her and inquired of his condition. Then, after seeing her on a cell phone, he began begging her not to call the police because he was “drunk and was going to jail.” He even asked her to take him away from the scene to Clarksville. He didn’t even offer to help them try to save Mr. Warner. She also stated that she was SHOCKED to see Mr. McBride leaving the scene with his parents without being arrested. The Clarksville Leaf Chronicle even reported that he refused medical treatment at the scene, had given medics a sample of his blood and was released. His blood tested .11% of alcohol. Upon further discussion with Trooper Harrison and Lt. Lewis by phone, they both stated that a representative from the Montgomery County DAs office conferred with them by phone at the scene of the accident and concurred to release him without arrest, supposedly “lacking evidence of the presence of an influencing intoxicant.” Moreover, upon a visit of the Montgomery County DA’s office, Assistant DA Hill said it was Montgomery County DA, John Carney, himself, that talked to the troopers and allowed this man to freely go without arrest. Then, after researching his name, they told us that Mr. McBride had a previous ‘Driving Under the Influence’ conviction just 5 months earlier.
OUR LOVED ONE WAS KILLED BY A TWO-TIME DRUNK DRIVER AND THE AUTHORITIES LET HIM GO WITHOUT ARREST.
Hagmann and his cohorts have brought numerous allegations against MOA/IQOU and its leadership, creating such an atmosphere that if any African American was even accused of wrong-doing, it is assumed by law enforcement and the media that the individual was a member our organization. Meanwhile, the very opposite is the case. I, along with my American associates, have reformed thousands of young American men and women who now hate crime and drugs.
Ugly Face of Terrorist Exposed
On December 31, 2001, I was at the side of my aged father who was critically ill. I was told that there was a female reporter, one Farah Stockman, wishing to interview me, who claimed she was from the Boston Globe. I sent the message that I could not leave my father but she should come some time later on. In the meantime, she was welcome to leave some information detailing the reason for her request for an interview. In the time that I left to fetch the doctor, this woman wrote a note and sent it into my residence. My ailing father read this note, in which she alleged that Richard Reid, the “shoe bomber”, was supposed to be my follower; and that he was an Al-Qaida man. When my father read this note, he started weeping and before evening he passed away. Is this journalism? Before coming to my house she went from door to door in Islamabad with Richard Reid’s picture telling people he was my follower, whereas I had never known or seen that man. It is not possible for anyone to just come to see me without being properly introduced by IQOU staff. As a matter of fact, no one on the IQOU staff in the US knew either this Richard Reid or this journalist. During interrogation, the man, himself, never acknowledged that he knew or had met me. Yet people were paid to spread this falsehood. Eventually, Farah Stockman, herself, confessed. When she was interviewed in Islamabad, she related that she had been given this task by an agency in the U.S. She added that another person would be coming to stretch the lie even further and that that person turned out to be an alleged reporter from the Wall Street Journal--i.e., Daniel Pearl. After my father’s demise, I moved to the mountains. There is a village there in which I was building a school for girls. After 15 days up in the mountains, I learned through a local news paper that one reporter had been abducted. Suspicion was focused on me because the reporter had stated in his journal that he was trying to meet with me. For this reason, the police wanted to interview me. Consequently, I voluntarily returned to Islamabad to meet with the police authority.
I asked them how is that a person whom I have never met nor ever known could have been abducted when he was a 1000 miles away from me. How could I be blamed for that? They told me that I should report to a Karachi investigation team. That same night I flew to Karachi and reported. Everybody there knew I was not guilty. However, I stayed with them for a week until the actual abductors were caught. Meanwhile the high court judge handed down a decision. I was given an immediate release. I was innocent and had fallen victim to the most inhumane, cruel conspiracy –an plot to assassinate my character as well as take my life…so consistent with Israeli schemes. Another Israeli conspirator wrote a book entitled “Who Killed Daniel Pearl”. Outrightly discredited by the U.S. public, it was declared a heap of lies. In that book, he claimed that I was the mentor of Osama Bin Laden. Nobody believed his story. I do not know Osama Bin Laden; yet it doesn’t take much for dirty lies to spread. This particular author also called me the “world’s most mysterious man”. Now here I’d say he was not all wrong. I am a Sufi. The entire Sufi doctrine is very mysterious, complicated and unexplainable to those with no intellect, understanding, etc. Now, here comes the latest aggressor, Douglas J. Hagmann. In one breath he concocts so many lies that one wonders how a person with common sense can do such a thing. His statements themselves are self–contradictory, identical to his predecessor, Yusuf Bodenski. Hagmann claims that I have a connection with Hamas. Then, he revives the dead case of Daniel Pearl, as stated earlier. After his abduction, hundreds of people were questioned. (While in Karachi, he’d written in his diary that he planned to see me, whereas I was over a thousand miles away, in the mountain valley of Ghari Habibullah building a school.) I was also questioned. I responded to their queries, the authorities realized their mistake and I was allowed to go home. But this man brought accusations in such a way as to implicate me in the whole affair, itself, or at the very least to insinuate that I am hostile to journalists. I, myself, am the founding executive of Islamic Post of New York and the author of many books. Why should I refuse an interview of a fellow journalist? It is very common for TV teams and journalists to call on me to discuss issues of mutual concern. Has Mr. Hagmann seen my interview done by George Crile of CBS, 60 Minutes II? We hosted Mr. Crile comfortably in my home for two nights. Another accusation he leveled against me is that I shelter one Stephen Pastor –a man accused of training people to make bombs. (Stephen Pastor was present in Pakistan about ten years ago and then went on his own way.)
I have no words to express my detestation of such false accusations. However, I will continue to focus on the good work of my students. As a matter of fact, for the last 25 years many student groups from America have been coming to visit Pakistan, mainly for hiking, trekking and tourism. The Islamberg Hiking Club remains very active in the Himalayas. Many went over the Karakoram highway to the border of China and visited other mountain areas. It won’t be out of place to mention that during my early days some of my dearest friends were American teachers and students who went climbing and hunting with me. I spent most of my time mountains climbing, hunting and contemplating. People from all over the world would come to me. In 1966 while I was up in my spiritual retreat (Zavia) in the Himalayas at 14,000 feet, one American, John Mc Arthur, along with a female companion came up. He was the heir of one prominent Chicago newspaper. They were my guests for some time and wanted to climb the Mankial Peak, a straight wall 5,000 ft up from where we were. I told him that the weather was not right and that it could not be done in one day. However, he said goodbye and decided to climb anyway, against my instructions. I was very worried because I knew it was not possible. The following morning I came down from my zavia, and that same day his companion reached me after midnight very hysterically saying that Mc Arthur had not come down to base yet. It is a long story but the thing is that I went out of my way and requested my government to send helicopters to rescue him. I myself went up in a helicopter to search for him. Thousands of people do come and meet me and then go on their way. As in the case of Daniel Pearl, Mr. Hagmann mentioned the murder of one Ahmadia. The two individuals accused, allegedly perished in the fire set for the said purpose. Now I don’t understand how the connection is made between MOA and those people. Is the assumption that every African American Muslim is a member of MOA? As matter of principle American Muslims had been strictly advised to mind their own business and not interfere in others people’s beliefs and religions. They adhere to this and will continue to do.
When Saudi Arabia needed my help to prove the Holy Quran’s healing effects on living and non-living beings, I simply went and demonstrated it for one year without pay, in the company of doctors from around the world knowing that according to the Saudis (Wahabi) belief, I am a deviate. Also, being a descendant of the Holy Last Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) they claim that those who accord this family respect, are making us “lesser idols”. Nonetheless, I completed the demonstration and healing. I cited three evidences of our reaching out and helping regardless of whether the people are Christians, Jews or Muslims.
On 11th September when planes struck the towers, a group of Mossad was filming the incident from rooftops on the Jersey side. I contacted our university personnel to immediately sent rescue and relief teams and more than 100 scouts went to ground zero to aid in the rescue and relief. The same was done when hurricane Katrina hit; not only rescue, and relief, but also rebuilding. They met hundreds of people telling them of the horrendous acts of terrorism perpetrated on the victims where levies were blown out with dynamite in order to save the upper class white neighborhoods. There’s a lot I can say but I know that a media trial and media war has been launched out to bring about the ultimate clash of civilizations and it has been quite successful. These terrorists have gained mileage out of this horrendous campaign. The American people have been made pawns in this game and are paying a dear price in blood and money fighting a war for someone else. Muslims too are suffering. As regards allegations of the earlier man who authored “Who Killed Daniel Pearl”, there is some speculation that it was the FBI who released a computer-generated video depicting Daniel Pearl being killed. Up till today, no one believes that video and its authenticity has yet to be proven. The whole hoax was arranged to set up a few people so the CIA could move against them. It was very similar to when they sent Farah Stockman carrying a picture of Richard Reid telling people that he was my follower. The entire story is very strange. Was he a ghost? If he was my follower, why is it that neither myself nor any of my followers knew him? It is a fact that I was sent to the United States to guide and lead Muslims on the right path. Unlike these messengers of falsehood, whatever I say, there are hundreds of eye witnesses from one end of the United States to the other who will testify to its validity. One can interview people who will swear on their honor that the only thing which made them submit to me was that the Holy Last Messenger (sas) came to them himself in a vision and told them he had sent me to them as his khalifa and guide. I introduced ElGilani Methodology to them, which worked and still works in healing people of all types of diseases. I still heal people on the phone, particularly those suffering epileptic fits after reading the Harry Potter series. The author of that book was right in one thing, I am a mystery nobody can solve. I will let Mrs Najah, wife of Ali Abdur Rasheed explain one miraculous manifestation. Shrine Account Baitun Noor Holy Khanqah was so named in 1996 by his Eminence Sultan Mohyuddin Imam Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, (a direct descendant of the Holy Last Messenger Muhammad (countless peace and blessings be upon him), the Chancellor of the International Quranic Open University.
The Imam faxed a dua (prayer) from the treasure chest of Sultan Sheikh Syed Abdul Qadir Gilani to be recited on Nisf Sha’ban (15th day of the eighth month of the Islamic calendar) and subsequently upon receipt of the fax the miracles began. The students were ecstatic when the jammed paper came out pristine. They were expressing their joy when one of them saw a perfectly shaped, brilliantly colored rainbow on the ceiling. Another student went to the sink in search of a water source that could be causing the rainbow on the ceiling and found, emblazoned on the wall, the Name of the One Almighty Creator/Allah and His Holy Last Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The names were inscribed in impeccable Arabic script and in radiant layered rainbow colors. Beginning in Ramadan 2002, the Name of Allah Almighty, His Holy Last Messenger Muhammad (countless peace and blessings be upon him forever), Ali Asadullah (may the Almighty bless his countenance), Arabic letters, rainbows, and silhouettes of hawks/falcons were seen at Baitun Noor Holy Khanqah by thousands. For 30 days continuously the name of Almighty Allah and the Holy Last Messenger (sas) kept shining on the walls of the Holy Shrine and visitors would see rainbows in the shrine at night. Thousands of people flocked to the site and prayed; Christians and Muslims alike. Many patients were cured of cancer and other diseases after praying to be healed there.
All of the major media was invited to come and witness this immense miracle but none accepted. The Herald, a local South Carolinian newspaper, had a psychiatrist state “It’s a miracle, if you believe it, because people see what they believe.”
One Christian lady, Mrs. June Najjar, and her husband, Mr. Muhammad Najjar, came to expose this thinking, that probably it was being done with lasers etc. However, the local reporter from the Herald of Rock Hill, SC, Andrew Dys, himself, saw the miraculous manifestation of the name of Allah Almighty written in Arabic script. Muhammad Najjar was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He and his Christian wife, June, were encouraged by their Muslim neighbors to visit Baitun Noor and pray for a cure. Muhammad Najjar entered the Holy Khanqah and in quiet solitude spoke to the One Almighty Creator, Allah. June saw the miraculous manifestation of the name of Allah and His Holy Last Messengers emblazoned on the wall in rainbow colors. She commented, “You know this will not go away, it will always be here“. (June embroidered Allah’s name, as she saw it on the wall, on a pillow which sits on a bookcase in Baitun Noor). On Muhammad Najjar’s return visit to the doctor he was informed that he did not have any cancer and he was assured that Allah had answered his prayer in Baitun Noor. Abu Hassan (Muhammad Najjar) documented his miraculous cure in Arabic and English stating that before the documentary, no matter how hard he tried, he was unable to speak his mother tongue, Arabic. Miraculous manifestations are a warning for the oppressors and glad tidings for the oppressed; as well as a sign that the Muslims and Christians will unite with allegiance to Holy Second Last Messenger Jesus, son of Mary (peace and blessing be upon him). Those who witness miraculous manifestations are blessed with divine favor and love and it is meant to promote their certainty and assure them of Allah Ta Aala’s help and support. It is written in the books of earlier Sufis that a divinely sent reformer or leader (not Messenger because the Holy Last Messenger Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is the last Messenger) must be supported by divine miracles and heavenly bodies must obey. Therefore these miracles are exclusive signs meant for the students of His Eminence Imam Gilani and is supported by Divine Mandate. There have been so many Miraculous Manifestations happening for the past 20 years in support of the dawah (propogation of Islam) mission of his Eminence Sultan Mohyuddin Imam Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani. At that time I said it was a warning and glad tidings at the same time; that people oppressing others would not be successful. I conveyed this message. I along with my sincere followers saw exactly what happened at New Orleans before it took place. I advised the university staff to publicize our documentary “Beyond 60 Minutes” and circulate our newspaper, The Islamic Post to TV networks, security agencies, and the public in general. I assure everybody that we are very humble Sufis. Love and Peace are our weapons. Neither I nor any of my followers ever told anyone to cause harm to anyone else. But unfortunately our enemies decided to wipe Islam out from the world and not let it flourish in the United States and for this reason all that is being done.
Our university has forbidden Muslims to live on welfare, and all those who may acquire wealth illegally have nothing to do with us or our university. They are only bringing a bad name and dishonor to Islam. In fact, we have unearthed 2 groups involved in anti social activities using our name and we have thrown them out, and because of that our own people were shot and harmed. I, on behalf of the staff of MOA and IQOU, declare that for us, America is a country where people have joined together to live in peace and prosperity and we wish this to continue. But the basic and fundamental reality is that if America is used to fight other peoples’ war, it will be very difficult for it to remain intact. American Muslims and Christians must join hands to save their country, religion and morality because it is being targeted by vested interests and being replaced with Satanism, witchcraft, and Paganism.
