New report of radical, anti-U.S. Islamic centers confirms our 2004-05 findings

Investigative report by Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

Private undercover team exposes nationwide network of radical, anti-U.S. Islamic centers and supports our investigative findings…

Mosques and Islamic centers in the U.S. are actively teaching jihad ideology and paramilitary training in the U.S.

“I have sources - inside sources. These people at Best are armed and dangerous. They are doing paramilitary training there.”– Statement by former city council member about an Islamic Center in the city of Buffalo, NY. [Reported by Douglas J. Hagmann, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, September, 2004]

“Our initial investigation has concluded there are between 400 to 500 radical Islamic centers in the U.S. In those places, they preach an extreme version of Islam that says America and the West is the enemy. They espouse violence, hatred and the need for terrorism.” –Reported by David Gaubatz, director of counterintelligence and counterterrorism for the Society of Americans for National Existence and former senior U.S. intelligence official, June 2007

Children playing or paramilitary exercise?28 June 2007: On 27 May 2005, the Northeast Intelligence Network published an investigative report titled ”Islamic Jihad Training in America?” that summarized the findings of our extensive investigation and covert surveillance of mosques and Islamic centers inside the U.S. that are purportedly teaching Islamic “jihad” in the form of ideological teachings and paramilitary style training to members of such Islamic centers. The report is available  by request (e-mailed in PDF format).

The primary focus of “Part I” of our investigation was the Islamic center located in the city of Buffalo, New York, a location that could be used as a template for other locations inside the U.S. The Northeast Intelligence Network first disclosed our investigative findings exclusively on The Tom Bauerle Show, featured on WBEN 930-AM in late 2004, prior to the issuance of our written report. Our findings, based on photographic documentation and information obtained through interviews, research, and other investigative methods, suggest that the ideology and practical aspects of Islamic Jihad is being taught at mosques and Islamic centers inside the United States, and those in charge of the Islamic centers are not being truthful to the public about their teachings.

In addition to photographic and other documentation we obtained relevant to the Buffalo, NY Islamic Center, the Northeast Intelligence Network found instances where the Imam of the Buffalo, NY Islamic center, Ibriham MEMON, appeared to propagate hatred of non-believers of Islam in a speech he gave at an Islamic conference - statements that could serve to exemplify our findings in this brief audio clip.

Unsurprisingly, our findings were challenged by not only those who operate the Islamic centers, but by a broader spectrum of people who, in spite of the evidence presented, did not - and still do not believe such activities and teachings are taking place. The recent investigative findings of Mr. Gaubatz, a former counter-intelligence official, are consistent with the reports we issued in 2004-05, and serve to reinforce our findings. Perhaps now more people will awaken to the fact that hundreds of Islamic centers in the United States have become a hot-bed of extremist activity; they promote violence, terrorism and hatred against America.
