Is a covert paramilitary training compound for Islamic radicals located in York County, S.C.?
Wait … what?
The fact that we’re even asking that question seems preposterous, doesn’t it?
Of course it does.
But before you dismiss it completely, consider the info that’s coming to light about “Islamville, S.C.”
One of nearly thirty self-sustaining “communes” run under the banner of “Muslims of America,” this York County compound was the focus of an in-depth report last night by SC-based TV station WLTX.
According to the report, all the residents of Islamville, S.C. (which is technically called the “Holy Khanqah Gilania Sufi Lodge”) pledge their allegiance to Sheikh Mubarik Ali Gilani, purportedly the leader of the international terrorist organization Jamaat ul-Fuqra (a.k.a. “Community of the Impoverished”).
Gilani has appeared on numerous “training tapes,” according to the WLTX report:
Gilani says on (one) tape, “Life is becoming more hard for Muslims; therefore, every Muslim man or woman should learn to defend himself or herself. We are establishing training camps. You can reach us in South Carolina or Pakistan, wherever we are.”
It’s not known for sure where or when the tape was made, but it does show someone teaching guerilla warfare including weapons training. Sheriff Bryant says neighbors often report hearing gunfire coming from the York County compound.
At least once a month anywhere from 500 to 1,000 Muslims converge on Islamville. The sheriff says his office is always told in advance and there’s few if any problems. Nevertheless, his deputies patrol the area on a regular basis.
Ali Rashid an Islamville elder. He was recruited by Gilani 25 years ago in Pakistan. He told us that Islamville is “an open community and we don’t hide anything.”
After seeing our camera, Rashid said, “I’m sure you just photographed and what you just photographed is all there is.”
Hold up … “neighbors often report hearing gunfire?”
That can’t be good.
Of course, local authorities say they can’t “act on a concern.” Which is true.
Like Fenster said in Usual Suspects, there’s “no P.C.,” or probable cause.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the residents of “Islamville, S.C.” are big fans of President Barack Obama.
In fact, courtesy of The Islamic Post, here’s a strange excerpt of the love they’ve been showing “The One” lately …
Just last month Hazrat Ali’s name was seen in the moon of the 13th of Muharram. His Eminence, Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, our spiritual guide, explained that this meant that Hazrat Ali’s descendants will be victorious world leaders. Now we see the will of the Almighty Creator is being fulfilled with the presidency of Syed Barack Hussein Obama. The United States President is a descendant of the Holy Last Messenger, Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Fatimah (may the peace of Allah be upon the Holy Last Messenger, Muhammad, and his noble family.) Allah does what He wills and He is the Best of Planners.
These miraculous signs have appeared as both a warning and glad tidings, informing those who would seek to put out Allah’s light (however intense might be there efforts of false propaganda) that never ever will Al-Islam be diminished or finished.
On the contrary, Al-Islam will be regarded in the highest degree of respect and love as a comfort and source of assurance to the believers worldwide.
And you thought Obama was getting love from the MSM.
Anyway, props to WLTX on their reporting. This is obviously something we’ll be following as well …
