Group tied to Pakistani terrorist to parade in Binghamton, NY

31 March 2008: The city of Binghamton, New York granted a group with ties to Islamic terrorist Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani a permit to publicly celebrate Milad-un-Nabi, or Muhammed’s birthday, in the streets of Binghamton this Saturday. The Muslims of the Americas (MOA), the name used by Jamaat ul Fuqra, or “Community of the Impoverished,” was issued a permit for a public celebration that includes a parade that will run through the downtown area and close one lane of the city’s main street. Previous celebrations by MOA members have been held at their 35 acre compound in Hancock, NY.

Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which is headquartered in Hancock, has been linked to multiple murders, bombings, and various other felonies throughout the United States and Canada. Established by Pakistani terrorist Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani in 1980, Jamaat ul Fuqra has more than 35 known or suspected communes in North America and more than 3,000 members spread across the United States, all in support of one goal: the purification of Islam through violence.

Sheikh Mubarek Gilani, the group’s leader, is regarded as an international terrorist. At a terrorist summit held in Khartoum in December 1993, Gilani and other terrorist leaders, such as Osama bin Laden, were caught on film by the Canadian Broadcasting Company chanting, “Down, down USA! Down, down CIA!” and “Death to the Jews!” Gilani currently resides in Lahore, Pakistan. In 2007, Gilani issued a press release suggesting, in part that Daniel Pearl is not dead, and that his “purported” death is part of a larger conspiracy to smear his good name.

As a result of an investigative report authored by Douglas J. Hagmann, founder and director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, Gilani – a one-time suspect in the kidnapping and murder or Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl – issued a lengthy diatribe against Hagmann on the official MOA web site.

The parade this Saturday will be the first one of its type in Binghamton. Following the parade, guest speakers will deliver speeches in front of the old Broome County Court-house. According to published accounts, the list of guest speakers includes the Rev. Douglas Taylor of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Binghamton and Diane O’Heron, a professor at Broome Community College.

The city of Binghamton issued the permits allowing the group to hold a public celebration. On Monday morning, Doug Hagmann contacted Mr. Andrew Block, Director of Community Relations, who confirmed that the permits were issued to the group after the city consulted with the Binghamton Police Department. When asked if the city is familiar with the history and background of this organization, Mr. Block acknowledged that he is familiar with “some allegations,” but directed further inquiries to the police department.
