Professor to be Deported

14 April 2006: After failing to convict him on charges he helped finance terrorist attacks in Israel, federal authorities have decided to deport Sami Al-Arian, a former University of South Florida professor and long-time supporter Palestinian terrorist activities. According to attorneys familiar with the arrangement, Sami Al-Arian has reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a lesser charge and be deported.

Al-Arian has been in jail since December, when a Tampa jury acquitted him on eight of 17 federal charges against him and deadlocked on the rest. It isn’t clear where Al-Arian will be sent.

From the Words of Saddam’s Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti Himself: WMDs in Syria

“After Saddam denied he had such weapons why would he use them or leave them readily available to be found? That would only legitimize President Bush, who he has a personal grudge against. What we are witnessing now is many who opposed the war to begin with are rallying around Saddam saying we overthrew a sovereign leader based on a lie about WMD. This is exactly what Saddam wanted and predicted.”–Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti

By: Ryan Mauro

13 April 2006: Ali Ibrahim al-Tikriti was a southern regional commander for Saddam Hussein’s Fedayeen militia in the late 1980s and a personal friend of the dictator. Units under his command dealt with chemical and biological weapons. He was known as the “Butcher of Basra” due to his campaigns and defected shortly before the Gulf War in 1991. This interview aims to gain some insight into the current situation in Iraq.

RM: Is there a single incident that you can point to that made you regret your actions and turn against the Baath Party?

IT: The single incident was my wife being willing to stand before me, not as my wife but as an Iraqi, and before one of Saddam’s most brutal enforcers and question my tactics. This really made me think because no one has ever even considered to question the tactics of myself or any others and lived to tell about it. This courageous move made me think deep and hard.

Toronto Horton Explosion: “It Never Happened”

12 April 2006: The Northeast Intelligence Network is continuing to receive information and investigate the curious “explosion” that occurred at the Tim Horton’s Coffee shop in Toronto on Sunday, 2 April 2006. Two sources who were at the scene have provided information to the Northeast Intelligence Network, which is being independently verified by our investigators. Based on the information obtained to date, the official explanation is, at best, inaccurate. The details of our findings will be provided as they are confirmed by our investigators.

Inside Information on Toronto Blast

Exclusive Investigation Details Casts Doubt on Official Explanation

3 April 2006: Investigation conducted by the Northeast Intelligence Network into the explosion and fire at a Tim Horton’s Coffee shop in Toronto that occurred at approximately 1:00 pm yesterday has provided some information not made public by authorities. The specific information obtained by Northeast Intelligence Network investigators located in Canada and New York casts doubt on the official explanation of the events provided by Toronto Police that the fire and explosion was caused by gasoline, and the dead man was intent on either committing suicide or causing arson to the facility. Contrary to the official explanation, there is a strong indication that the explosive substance TATP (triacetone triperoxide), also known as the Mother of Satan and a homemade and very unstable explosive was used in this blast.

This is the same substance used by “the despondent” Joel Henry Hinnrichs outside of the Oklahoma University stadium on October 1, 2005 - a blast that was ruled as a “suicide” and unrelated to terrorism.

**MORE**

According to initial reports, a male walked into the Tim Horton’s Doughnut Shop located near the intersection of Yonge and Bloor Streets, only a few yards from the entrance to Toronto’s largest subway station and one of the busiest intersections in the city about 1:00 pm yesterday. The male was observed by restaurant patrons and at least one employee who observed him entering the washroom immediately upon arrival. A number of those witnesses described the male subject as having something strapped to his upper body or otherwise visible through his outer clothing. Within minutes after the male entered the restroom, a “loud bang” was heard and a concussion was felt throughout the establishment, sending customers and some employees fleeing from the restaurant.

Police responded and found one dead male inside of the restroom, signs of an explosion and small fire, and what appeared to be batteries and wires near the body. Based on these observations, police immediately closed busy Yonge Street in both directions while a preliminary investigation was initiated.

According to reports by police and fire officials, “It doesn’t appear that there was much of a fire at all. There was a very small amount of smoke upon our arrival.” The washroom of the ceiling suffered explosive damage, and wires and batteries through to have been part of some type of bomb were, according to police, “part of an air freshening device inside of the washroom.”

Apparently ripping a page from the FBI’s public relations manual, Staff Sgt. Don Cole of Toronto police told reporters that the victim was likely an arsonist or attempting suicide. “He’s not a strap-on al-Qaeda bomber guy,” Cole said. “It sounds to me like a guy who either wanted to do a torch job or commit suicide”

——

Daryl Fuglerud, a spokesman with Toronto’s fire department, told reporters the man who died had burns to his body. “It doesn’t appear that there was much of a fire at all,” Fuglerud said. “There was a very small amount of smoke upon our arrival.” He added that the investigation was turned over to police because it was a “possible criminal” case.

After the explosion, a police robot was used to remove a duffel bag from the doughnut shop and detonate the bag that reportedly contained school supplies.

The Judicial Quandary in Michigan

By Douglas J. Hagmann

11 April 2006: The investiture of Judge Charlene Mekled Elder by Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm will take place tomorrow in Dearborn, Michigan. Governor Granholm appointed Charlene Mekled Elder, 36, wife to the deputy CEO of Wayne County, Azzam Elder, as a judge on the 3rd Circuit Court of Wayne County. She is the first female Muslim to hold a state judicial position in the country, and the first Arab-American female judge in this circuit to speak fluent Arabic. Wayne County has the largest concentration of Arab Americans outside the Middle East, roughly 350,000 and Michigan is home to approximately 400,000 citizens of Muslim faith.To most Americans, her appointment will go unnoticed. To most Americans, her appointment will seem to have little consequence. Most Americans, however, do not understand what is taking place inside of America. And if they did and verbalized their objections, they would be called religiously intolerant and bigoted toward Muslims. After all, we are constantly told that Islam is a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by a small contingent of that religion – a minority that does not speak or represent the majority of Muslims.

Understanding the Potential Consequences

Perhaps Governor Granholm believes that a female Muslim will bring diversity to the bench. As the first female Governor of the State of Michigan, perhaps she is equally excited to make history again by her appointment of Elder to a judicial position. But does she understand the potential consequences of a Muslim in a position within the judiciary?

Few Americans fully understand Islam, and fewer still understand that the Muslim religion necessitates what is termed a “sacral government,” or a church-state form of rule. Islam teaches that it is a religion inherent in the rule of law that must control the state. If we are to be honest with ourselves, we would admit that Islam is more than a religion – it is a comprehensive way of life where the Quran and the Hadith provide the final judgment in issues of law for all Muslims. The Quran and Hadith contain the religious, social, civil, commercial and even the legal rules that govern and regulate every aspect of the life of a Muslim. For true Muslims, there is no separation between church and state, and Sharia law takes primacy over constitutional law.

There is only one primary law and that is Allah’s law. All manmade laws must take a backseat to his law and if anyone says that Allah says in the Quran that you must follow or obey the law of the land in deference to Allah’s law, ask the liar to show you. He can’t, and he won’t, because Allah would never give an order which even possibly leads to disbelief.*

Based on the Islamic concept of subjugation of constitutional law to Sharia law, perhaps someone should ask the judicial appointee which legal authority she intends to use to adjudicate cases before her. If she chooses constitutional law, how will she be able to reconcile that with her Muslim beliefs? If she chooses Sharia law, will anything else matter?

Sheikh Mubarik Ali Gilani’s Bombing Disciples Deported from Canada

7 April 2006: After completing 12-year prison sentences for their 1994 conviction of conspiring to bomb a Hindu temple and East Indian movie theater in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, three men were deported from Canada on Wednesday. Barry Adams, Amir Mohammed Ahmed and Abdul Baqqer were arrested in 1991 while crossing the border from the United States into Canada. The men served their time in prisons in the Kingston, Ontario area. All three are members of Jammat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani based terrorist organization founded by Sheikh Gilani and based in Pakistan.

Gilani heads a number of Islamic encampments based in the U.S., or “jamaats” and have been the subject of investigation by the Northeast Intelligence Network and Internet researcher CP. The Pakistani Sheikh came “unglued” over a recent investigative report and issued a rambling, delusional statement denying any ties to terrorism despite ample evidence to support those allegations.

Congressman Resurrects Lifeless OKC Bomb Theory

“Proposed Rohrabacher Hearings will be an Impotent Dog & Pony Show”


By Jayna Davis, author, The Third Terrorist

4 April 2006: After a year-long investigation, California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has “concluded there is ample evidence to justify an investigative hearing”, into the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. In a March 30, 2006 memorandum to Chairman Henry Hyde, Rohrabacher advances the theory that German national Andreas Strassmeier, a purported government informant living in an eastern Oklahoma white separatist community, may have “played a significant role in the planning and execution” of this historic crime. The congressman persists in resurrecting this lifeless, wholly discredited conspiracy theory despite salient facts which repudiate neo-nazi involvement in the greatest act of domestic terror in 20th century America. So where’s the proof?

There is none. A string of court rulings, and a book authored by Jon Hersley (the former lead investigator for the FBI Oklahoma Bomb Task Force), establishes that the most prodigious federal investigation failed to uncover any evidence whatsoever implicating: the Elohim City security officer, Andreas Strassmeier, residents of the religious compound, and the jailed members of the Aryan Republican Army (ARA) who perpetrated a host of Midwestern bank robberies during the early 1990s. Despite the Bureau’s exhaustive efforts, it could not produce one motel registration log, phone record, fingerprint, or eyewitness account linking these alleged conspirators to “any overt act in the commission of the crime.” Moreover, and much to the chagrin of federal agents, the FBI was forced to testify under oath before Judge Steven Taylor during Terry Nichols’ 2004 murder trial that the neo-nazi gang of bank robbers, Strassmeier, and his former neighbors at Elohim City have provable alibis and have been officially cleared of suspicion by the Bureau.

Endless paper trail hits dead end

A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking to unseal FBI files which might indicate that the ARA bank robbers and/or Strassmeier acted as government informants in “a sting operation gone awry” produced more than three hundred pertinent documents but not a single revelatory and no “smoking gun”. However, the FOIA case did prove that the FBI had redacted the names of informants residing in Elohim City, but no person was named as a participant in the bombing. The seemingly endless paper trail led to a dead end, but it did tell an intriguing story of the FBI’s failed quest to find McVeigh’s legendary accomplice: John Doe # 2. It soon became evident that the Bureau conducted a myopic manhunt, bent on collaring a “homegrown” third terrorist of Caucasian - not foreign - heritage. Absent of such evidence, they refused to explore legitimate leads into a Middle East connection, as they did not fit into the FBI’s prescripted scenario.

In early 1996, the Bureau conducted an unprecedented investigation in a Herculean effort to connect the rogue Aryan Republican Army militiamen-turned-bank-robbers to the two Oklahoma City bombers. After all, they were cut from the same cloth as Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols and indubitably fit the profile of the anti-government, angry white men who avenged their hatred of the establishment by destroying a federal complex. All one has to do is to simply recall the social and political climate that existed at the time, to understand the Bureau’s need to force-fit a suspect matching that profile.

Judge rules homegrown terrorist complicity a “dry hole, hyperbole”

After conducting twenty-five thousand witness interviews, the FBI could not find one witness who could tie the ARA bank robbers, Strassmeier, or Elohim City white separatists to: downtown Oklahoma City, McVeigh, the Ryder truck, the getaway vehicles, or the bomb site. During Terry Nichols’ 2004 state murder trial, the FBI was forced to testify on camera before Judge Steven Taylor regarding the alleged involvement of Elohim City, Strassmeier, and the band of robbers in the bombing, which had been raised by defense lawyers. However, federal agents were loath to admit that not one member of the ARA bank robbery gang, or the German national were in Oklahoma City on the fateful morning of April 19, 1995. All had irrefutable alibis.

The judge was not convinced. In the interest of objectivity, he ordered the FBI to compare the convicted gangsters’ fingerprints with more than one thousand prints gathered during the course of the bombing investigation. The result -– no match. The judge then ruled that with the established alibis, absence of eyewitness testimony linking the purported suspects to the crime scene, and with no forensic match to the fingerprints, the defense team’s supposition that the Midwest bank robbers, Elohim City residents, and/or Andreas Strassmeier moonlighted as “mad bombers” was nothing more than “hyperbole and a dry hole.”

Judge Taylor did, however, leave the door open for the defense to call to the stand witnesses who could tie “others unknown”, to “overt acts in the commission of the crime.” Nichols’ lawyers shrieked. The only perpetrators who were seen with McVeigh in Oklahoma City before that tragic day and during the placement of the bomb truck were Iraqi soldiers. Viewed through the lens of September 11, exposing McVeigh’s collusion with Iraqi servicemen meant a certain death penalty for Nichols, who would have been characterized as a murderous traitor colluding with enemy soldiers to slaughter innocent Americans. The jury would have likely determined that Nichols acted with clear malice, motive, and murderous intent - all the elements that the 2004 Oklahoma trial testimony failed to provide, which enabled Nichols to elude the death penalty once again.

FBI fails to clear Iraqi soldier whom witnesses call “the third terrorist”

As for the three hundred documents in the FBI archive relating to the undercover surveillance of Elohim City and the 1990’s Midwest bank heist investigation, I expected nothing less. The FBI spared no resources to make the connection to right-wing zealots in an effort to satisfy the public’s insatiable desire to produce the ubiquitous John Doe # 2. However, an outright dismissal that Elohim City might have served as a possible meeting ground for the Oklahoma bombers presented quite a quandary. Why? The FBI had two known informants in the rural compound - spiritual leader Reverend Robert Millar (FBI informant status confirmed in 1997 courtroom testimony), and resident Carol Howe, an ATF informant who did not accuse Strassmeier of association with Timothy McVeigh until after she had been tried and acquitted of federal explosives charges.

In short, the Bureau has been completely and utterly unable to connect the citizen militia movement, neo-nazis, and government informants to the 1995 Heartland bombing. Yet, by failing to publicly debunk this decade-old conspiracy theory, the United States Department of Justice effectively dodges the questions it cannot answer, or will not answer. Why did the federal agents never question Hussain Al-Hussaini, an Iraqi soldier who has no alibi, whom multiple witnesses have placed in the company of McVeigh and in the passenger seat of the Ryder truck that carried the Murrah Building bomb, and behind the wheel of a getaway vehicle pursued in an FBI all-points-bulletin issued the morning of April 19, 1995 for “foreign suspects”?

And why, years later, has the Bureau refused to clear Al-Hussaini as a suspect in the worst act of mass murder in the annals of American criminal history? Andreas Strassmeier has been questioned and officially exonerated. The same absolution has been granted to the Midwest Aryan bank robbers who revered Timothy McVeigh as a revolutionary hero.

Congressman Rohrabacher’s misguided belief that domestic terrorists and/or duplicitous government informants have escaped justice in the slaughter of 171 men, women, and children, will inevitably turn up no hard proof in congressional hearings. In turn, this public charade will inoculate the American people to the truth embodied in my book, The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to Oklahoma City Bombing.

In May 2005, Chicago lawyer David Schippers, the former chief prosecutor for the 1998 impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, conducted lengthy videotaped interviews with the principal confidential witnesses featured in The Third Terrorist. He stated that as a forty-five year practicing attorney and former federal prosecutor, he could deliver “a grand jury indictment against Hussaini Al-Hussaini with one day of testimony!”

There are twenty-two witnesses whose testimonies are begging to be heard. There are 171 victims who depend on those voices. I am waiting on law enforcement and Congress to do the right thing.

Terrorists Will Test American Resolve, DoD Policy Official Says

…[t]he cost of training and equipping an Afghan soldier is roughly $11,000. For an Iraqi soldier or policeman the cost is $40,000. It’s “well over $100,000? to deploy an American soldier…”

2 April 2006: (From 3/30/06): The nature of the United States’ enemies has changed, and Americans must maintain patience and will as the country fights the Long War against extremists, a top DoD policy official said here today.

Unlike past wars, the enemy today is not a nation state challenging America with military force, but rather a dispersed global network of extremist groups who use terror, propaganda and indiscriminate violence as they seek to advance their political gains, Eric S. Edelman, undersecretary of defense for policy, said at a presentation entitled “Threats, Resources and the Long War,” sponsored by “Congressional Quarterly” and Dittus Communications.

Special Reports : Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani: The Terrorist Behind the Curtain

Pakistani Cleric With Terrorist Ties Slams Investigative Report – Issues Delusional Diatribe

“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.” (sic)-Statement by Sheikh Syed Mubarik ‘Ali Gilani LINK

1 April 2006: The Northeast Intelligence Network, along with Internet researcher “CP,” has merited the attention and ire of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, a resident of Lahore, Pakistan, leader of the Muslims of the Americas, and the founder of the Islamic terrorist organization Jamaat al Fuqra (a position he disputes despite evidence to the contrary). Sheikh Gilani, all of the way from his digs in Lahore, Pakistan, has published a rambling diatribe accusing me and the Northeast Intelligence Network of “engaging in 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.).” Well, “your Emesis,” that’s quite a charge. In response, allow me to quote the old adage: “Me thinks thou doth protest too much.”

On February 12, 2006, the Northeast Intelligence Network published an investigative report, co-authored by Internet researcher “CP,” about Muslim enclaves located inside the United States. Based on our investigation, the encampments, or compounds, originate from and have their roots in the organization known as Jamaat ul Fuqra. Additionally, our investigation identified Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani as the leader of Jamaat ul Fuqra and by extension, the head of these Islamic encampments, which is an assertion that Gilani steadfastly denies. Gilani, it seems, has been trying to “shake” (pun intended) his association with Jamaat ul Fuqra for nearly three decades.

It seems that Sheikh Gilani was so upset with our report that he chose to write a convoluted diatribe accusing the Northeast Intelligence Network and co-author CP of being “the actual perpetrators of international terrorism, and racial and religious bigotry and their ceaseless campaign of hate,” and we are “ more damaging to the U.S. than any other country.” A link to our investigative report can be found at the end of this article, and you can read his rambling discourse about us at this link:

http://www.iqou-moa.org/editorial/terror_roots.htm

Despite the protests of the sheikh and half-baked Gilani, his background should speak for itself. The story of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani begins about 1980, when he traveled from Pakistan to Brooklyn, New York and began preaching at an African-American mosque and seeking recruits for the jihad in Afghanistan. He primarily recruited black American converts to Islam from prisons and those with criminal backgrounds living in inner city neighborhoods, a tactic still in use today. Some of his followers, when not engaged in jihad, lived in compounds – or “jamaats” – most of which began to spring up inside the U.S. The resulting organization, al Fuqra (meaning “the impoverished”), was formed with the primary goal of purifying Islam through violence. And, Sheikh Gilani was the primary recruiter. It was at that time that Gilani established his U.S. headquarters in a rural area of Delaware County, New York, where he established a “Jamaat,” or Islamic compound.

Between 1980 and 1990, al Fuqra members have been either convicted or suspected in 13 assassinations and 17 fire bombings. Front companies for the organization have been linked to the defrauding $350,000 from the state of Colorado’s workers’ compensation fund and $1.3 million from the state of California. These funds are laundered through several Muslim front organizations set up in the United States by Gilani including an Islamic university and system of private elementary schools. State investigators believe Al Fuqra members delivered the funds to Gilani during trips to Lahore to finance jihad activities.

In 1989, federal authorities conducted a raid of an al Fuqra storage facility in Colorado, finding ten handguns and silencers, 30 pounds of explosives, and target-practice silhouettes pierced with bullet holes and labeled “FBI Antiterrorist Team” and “Zionist Pig,” pipe bombs, and explosive components. Authorities also found blank birth certificates, Social Security cards, and false licenses. Police also found information on local military installations and electrical power lines, cell phone sites, gas and oil fields, plus “attack plans” against various targets. Military-style manuals on “Guerrilla Warfare,” “Counter Guerrilla Operations,” “Understanding Amateur Radio,” “Fair Weather Flying,” and “Basic Blueprint Reading” were also recovered. One of the targets, identified in the locker - a moderate imam, was brutally stabbed to death four months later.

Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani can issue denials and objections, but they will never make those pesky little reports authored by the U.S. Department of State go away. He apparently didn’t get the 1999 memo “Patterns of Global Terrorism” from the U.S. Department of State where he is identified as the leader of Jamaat ul Fuqra, and further states that his followers have “purchased isolated rural compounds in North America to live communally, practice their faith, and insulate themselves from Western culture.” Not coincidentally, our investigative report focusing on Islamberg in south central New York State fits that description perfectly.

The same State Department publication states that “[Jamaat ul] Fuqra members have attacked a variety of targets that they view as enemies of Islam,” from non-Muslims to Muslims they regard as heretics. The report lists assassinations and fire bombings across the United States in the 1980’s as referenced above, and identifies Fuqra members in the United States having been convicted of murder and fraud. Nice group. Although his name was removed from the US State Department’s list a year later, investigations into his associations and activities continue.

If the name Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani sounds familiar, it should. He is the person who is most commonly recognized as the man Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was to meet in Pakistan when he was kidnapped in January 2002, savagely murdered and ultimately beheaded – all in the name of Islam.

Although jailed briefly for suspicion of murder, Gilani was later released. But he has a much longer and equally insidious history with Islamic terrorism, such as his participation at a 1993 meeting of terrorists in Sudan, where he rubbed elbows with none other than Osama bin Laden. In fact, there is sufficient evidence linking Gilani and ul Fuqra to al Qaeda. One of the men who assisted al Fuqra in 1989 was Wadih el-Hage, an al Qaeda member sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 1998 embassy bombings. Further, there is a body of evidence that suggests that “shoe bomber” Richard Reid is a follower of ul Fuqra, and one of the infamous “beltway snipers” may have obtained assistance from one of the jamaats.

As our investigative report outlines, the Hancock, NY headquarters of the terrorist group Jamaat ul Fuqra poses itself as the International Qur’anic Open University and Muslims of the Americas Inc. Gilani and the “Quranic University” is also home to the “Muslim Scouts of America” at Islamberg.

Muslims of the Americas (MOA)

Muslims of the Americas (MOA) was founded in 1980 and is led by Sheikh Sayyid Mubarik Ali Jilani (a/k/a Sheikh Gilani). MOA is a virulently anti-Semitic, Islamic extremist group with direct ties to Al-Fuqra. MOA claims to have offices in six U.S. cities and Toronto and as outlined in our investigative report, maintains secluded residential communities throughout the United States, with its primary headquarters in the state of New York. The group’s Web site and e-mails have featured writings by notorious anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers such as Michael Hoffman and former Klansman David Duke. MOA also run camps for young men - including Muslim Boy Scouts of America. The connections between Jamaat ul fuqra, the Muslims of the Americas, and the Muslim Boy Scouts of America are undeniable.

Despite these obvious connections and controversies, the ties to Sheikh Gilani, and Gilani’s ties to international terrorism, the FBI lavishly praised the work of the questionable Quranic University and even sent FBI Special Agent in Charge, Leslie Wieser, to deliver the 2004 “graduation speech” at the university. You can see and hear for yourself agent Wieser delivering his speech to the graduating class of MOA/Scouts of America at the commencement exercises in Holy Islamville, South Carolina at this link: http://www.iqou-moa.org/muslim_scouts/les_weiser.htm.

Sheikh Gilani, who has called the U.S. the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world, must have been very proud.

Equally interesting, the website of the Muslim Scouts of America proudly displays a note of appreciation from Special Agent FBI, Phillip Irizarry of Binghamton, New York on the 2005 American Muslim Scouts Summer Program. The note from Agent Phillip Irizarry states:

“Assalamu alykum Hussein,

I just wanted to thank you again for a great day yesterday. It was a pleasure presenting to the boys. As I said they had excellent questions. The boys also demonstrated their appreciation and enthusiasm for having us present to them, and it was very much appreciated by Mike, JP and myself. I have attached the pictures we took memorializing the event and we look forward to the graduation in August, Inshallah. Please send the boys and camp staff Salaams on our behalf.”

Sincerley,

Phil

Inshallah indeed. I wonder if agent Irizarry is a Christian… or a Jew. In any event, the MOA website - the sponsor of the Muslim Boy Scouts of America - states that “Jews are an example of human Satans,” and also describes Jews as “sub-humans.” The same website slams Christians, Christianity and America. Yet FBI Special Agent in Charge Leslie Wieser of South Carolina openly praises such “diversity,” and agent Irizarry extends his praises in a similar fashion.

Have they failed to read the anti-American, anti-Semetic, anti-Christian proclamations on the MOA web site?

Has the FBI failed to review the notes from the U.S. Department of State pertaining to Giani, Jamaat ul Fuqra, and the various investigations conducted on state levels over the last two decades?

How else would one explain the cozy relationship between this organization and the FBI? Apparently, much of America has forgotten that we are at war. Has the FBI – the agency in charge of defending our homeland forgotten as well?

The insanity of political correctness that has overtaken and is influencing our war against terrorism – ISLAMIC TERRORISM – is imperiling us all. The memory of Daniel Pearl and other victims deserve better. We, as Americans deserve better. And if we don’t stand up and demand better, who will?

In 1989, federal authorities conducted a raid of an al Fuqra storage facility in Colorado, finding ten handguns and silencers, 30 pounds of explosives, and target-practice silhouettes pierced with bullet holes and labeled “FBI Antiterrorist Team” and “Zionist Pig,” pipe bombs, and explosive components. Authorities also found blank birth certificates, Social Security cards, and false licenses. Police also found information on local military installations and electrical power lines, cell phone sites, gas and oil fields, plus “attack plans” against various targets. Military-style manuals on “Guerrilla Warfare,” “Counter Guerrilla Operations,” “Understanding Amateur Radio,” “Fair Weather Flying,” and “Basic Blueprint Reading” were also recovered. One of the targets, identified in the locker - a moderate imam, was brutally stabbed to death four months later.

Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani can issue denials and objections, but they will never make those pesky little reports authored by the U.S. Department of State go away. He apparently didn’t get the 1999 memo “Patterns of Global Terrorism” from the U.S. Department of State where he is identified as the leader of Jamaat ul Fuqra, and further states that his followers have “purchased isolated rural compounds in North America to live communally, practice their faith, and insulate themselves from Western culture.” Not coincidentally, our investigative report focusing on Islamberg in south central New York State fits that description perfectly.

The same State Department publication states that “[Jamaat ul] Fuqra members have attacked a variety of targets that they view as enemies of Islam,” from non-Muslims to Muslims they regard as heretics. The report lists assassinations and fire bombings across the United States in the 1980’s as referenced above, and identifies Fuqra members in the United States having been convicted of murder and fraud. Nice group. Although his name was removed from the US State Department’s list a year later, investigations into his associations and activities continue.

If the name Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani sounds familiar, it should. He is the person who is most commonly recognized as the man Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was to meet in Pakistan when he was kidnapped in January 2002, savagely murdered and ultimately beheaded – all in the name of Islam.

Although jailed briefly for suspicion of murder, Gilani was later released. But he has a much longer and equally insidious history with Islamic terrorism, such as his participation at a 1993 meeting of terrorists in Sudan, where he rubbed elbows with none other than Osama bin Laden. In fact, there is sufficient evidence linking Gilani and ul Fuqra to al Qaeda. One of the men who assisted al Fuqra in 1989 was Wadih el-Hage, an al Qaeda member sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 1998 embassy bombings. Further, there is a body of evidence that suggests that “shoe bomber” Richard Reid is a follower of ul Fuqra, and one of the infamous “beltway snipers” may have obtained assistance from one of the jamaats.

As our investigative report outlines, the Hancock, NY headquarters of the terrorist group Jamaat ul Fuqra poses itself as the International Qur’anic Open University and Muslims of the Americas Inc. Gilani and the “Quranic University” is also home to the “Muslim Scouts of America” at Islamberg.

Muslims of the Americas (MOA)

Muslims of the Americas (MOA) was founded in 1980 and is led by Sheikh Sayyid Mubarik Ali Jilani (a/k/a Sheikh Gilani). MOA is a virulently anti-Semitic, Islamic extremist group with direct ties to Al-Fuqra. MOA claims to have offices in six U.S. cities and Toronto and as outlined in our investigative report, maintains secluded residential communities throughout the United States, with its primary headquarters in the state of New York. The group’s Web site and e-mails have featured writings by notorious anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers such as Michael Hoffman and former Klansman David Duke. MOA also run camps for young men - including Muslim Boy Scouts of America. The connections between Jamaat ul fuqra, the Muslims of the Americas, and the Muslim Boy Scouts of America are undeniable.

Despite these obvious connections and controversies, the ties to Sheikh Gilani, and Gilani’s ties to international terrorism, the FBI lavishly praised the work of the questionable Quranic University and even sent FBI Special Agent in Charge, Leslie Wieser, to deliver the 2004 “graduation speech” at the university. You can see and hear for yourself agent Wieser delivering his speech to the graduating class of MOA/Scouts of America at the commencement exercises in Holy Islamville, South Carolina at this link: http://www.iqou-moa.org/muslim_scouts/les_weiser.htm.

Sheikh Gilani, who has called the U.S. the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world, must have been very proud.

Equally interesting, the website of the Muslim Scouts of America proudly displays a note of appreciation from Special Agent FBI, Phillip Irizarry of Binghamton, New York on the 2005 American Muslim Scouts Summer Program. The note from Agent Phillip Irizarry states:

“Assalamu alykum Hussein,

I just wanted to thank you again for a great day yesterday. It was a pleasure presenting to the boys. As I said they had excellent questions. The boys also demonstrated their appreciation and enthusiasm for having us present to them, and it was very much appreciated by Mike, JP and myself. I have attached the pictures we took memorializing the event and we look forward to the graduation in August, Inshallah. Please send the boys and camp staff Salaams on our behalf.”[/i]

Sincerley,

Phil

Inshallah indeed. I wonder if agent Irizarry is a Christian… or a Jew. In any event, the MOA website - the sponsor of the Muslim Boy Scouts of America - states that “Jews are an example of human Satans,” and also describes Jews as “sub-humans.” The same website slams Christians, Christianity and America. Yet FBI Special Agent in Charge Leslie Wieser of South Carolina openly praises such “diversity,” and agent Irizarry extends his praises in a similar fashion.

Have they failed to read the anti-American, anti-Semetic, anti-Christian proclamations on the MOA web site?

Has the FBI failed to review the notes from the U.S. Department of State pertaining to Giani, Jamaat ul Fuqra, and the various investigations conducted on state levels over the last two decades?

How else would one explain the cozy relationship between this organization and the FBI? Apparently, much of America has forgotten that we are at war. Has the FBI – the agency in charge of defending our homeland forgotten as well?

The insanity of political correctness that has overtaken and is influencing our war against terrorism – ISLAMIC TERRORISM – is imperiling us all. The memory of Daniel Pearl and other victims deserve better. We, as Americans deserve better. And if we don’t stand up and demand better, who will?

Exposing Roots of Terrorism In U.S. (Gilani)

1 April 2006: Statement by Pakistani Terror Kingpin made to Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

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, able-bodied 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 re-entered 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 Jack 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.

Irrefutable evidence:

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 El- Gilani 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.
