This morning, Fox & Friends Weekend posted this graphic from the Clarion Project showing the Muslim enclaves in America. Sorry. But this does not come as any surprise, especially since it’s a topic I first wrote about nearly six years ago.
Gaze upon this frightening map for a bit and then take the time to read–or re-read–my February 2009 post, which was last updated in January 2012. You can be sure that the situation has become much worse in the past three years.

- A radical jihadist group responsible for nearly 50 attacks on American soil is operating 35 terrorist training camps across the nation, but the U.S. government refuses to include the organization on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorists.
Jamaat ul-Fuqra, known in the U.S. as “Muslims of America,” has purchased or leased hundreds of acres of property – from New York to California – in which the leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, boasts of conducting “the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.” …
The group openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S., including the prison system. Members live in compounds where they agree to abide by the laws of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which are considered to be above local, state and federal authority.
U.S. authorities have probed the group for charges ranging from links to al-Qaida to laundering and funneling money into Pakistan for terrorist activities. The organization supports various terrorist groups operating in Pakistan and Kashmir, and Gilani himself is linked directly to Hamas and Hezbollah. …
Seven of the compounds have been identified as training facilities: Marion, Alabama; Commerce, Georgia; Macon, Georgia; Talihina, Oklahoma; York County, South Carolina; Dover, Tennessee and Red House, Virginia. Other compounds are located in California, Colorado, Texas, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, Michigan and West Virginia.
Nearly six years ago, in February 2009, I wrote about these training camps in one of my RBO blog’s most-viewed articles. Inevitably, you will come away realizing that the more time passes, the more things have stayed the same.
We begin with a February 2009 article about Islamic training camps in the USA published in the Shelbyville, Tennessee Times Gazette. The Tennessee newspaper provided a write-up about a speech delivered by former FBI special agent, John Guandolo, who told “law enforcement and Homeland Security personnel that a network of Islamic organizations are working to incrementally implement Islamic law in the United States.”
- During a presentation at the Bedford County Emergency Management Agency, former FBI agent John Guandolo briefed members about groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, which he claims is working with other Islamic groups to slowly implement Shariah, also known as Islamic law, which encompasses all areas of life.”
- Special Agent John Guandolo of the Federal Bureau of Investigations: A decorated U.S. Marine combat veteran of Desert Storm, Special Agent Guandolo has worked in the FBI since 1996 including nine years as a member of its SWAT team. Since shortly after 9/11, he has worked in the Bureau’s Washington Field Office’s Counterterrorism Division, developing a legendary expertise concerning Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood organizations and the broad subversive Islamist movement in the U.S. Special Agent Guandolo was recognized for his efforts to educate his colleagues and others in the law enforcement and intelligence communities about these subjects.
In his talk, Guandolo warned the group:
- Every major Muslim organization is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, the former FBI agent said, which he said was formed to overthrow America and establish Islamic law. …
He said that Muslim groups will demand concessions on matters by saying, “You have to do this; you have to do this or I will be offended.”
“The solution to this is you,” Guandolo said. “If you are looking to DHS, the FBI and Congress to solve this … you’re going to be woefully disappointed.”
He said that FBI agents in the field “are working good cases,” but that the FBI leadership “is unwilling to do what the agents are asking them to do, which is to pony up and use some courage and start stepping on these people.”
“This is political subversion, this is an insurgency in the United States,” he said of the Islamic movement. “Insurgency is thwarted at the local level and the tip of the spear is local police.”
He also said that he was threatened with his job no less than three times by superiors in the FBI “that told me we were creating waves in the Muslim community.”
Guandolo also said to watch what is happening in Great Britain, where Islamic radicalism has taken root. He noted that [Geert Wilders] a member of the Danish Parliament [had recently been] denied entry into the United Kingdom for fear that it would offend Muslims.
“They denied him access while at the same time, Islamic law is being instituted on the streets of Great Britain,” he said.
Guandolo presented the documentary Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S. produced by the Christian Action Network (CAN), which premiered February 11, 2009, in Washington, DC.
Note: All seven parts of this documentary film are currently available on YouTube beginning with Part 1. However, as the film’s trailer has consistently been removed at a steady clip, how long the documentary will remain available is anyone’s guess.
- The group describes its purpose as “to protect America’s religious and moral heritage through intensive lobbying efforts — both in the nation’s capital and at the grass roots level.”
They claim that for the past two years, members have “been on location, deep inside hidden Islamic terrorist training compounds, scattered across the United States.”
