At first glance, it looks like an abandoned dump…
FBI agents found something stunning inside the military style Islamic compound in rural Alabama.
ABC3340 reports – This plot of land in Macon County, Alabama is described in an FBI search warrant as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” belonging to a small group of terrorists led by Siraj Wahhaj who owned the property up a long dirt road but just a few miles from downtown Tuskegee.
“Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security,” says Tim Fuhrman, Former Special Agent with the FBI field office in Mobile, Alabama.
The property, similar to another compound in New Mexico the group is now linked to where federal prosecutors say Wahhaj and four other suspects were training children to carry out deadly terror attacks on American soil.
In the Alabama case the group may not have carried out an attack, but the remains of a child believed to belong to Wahhaj, who is being charged with kidnapping were also found on the property.
FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.
In August 2018, five adults living at a New Mexico Islamic compound where 11 starving children were found were arrested. The five members allegedly planned to attack a major hospital in Atlanta, court documents show:
It is being reported at WSB-TV: A 10-page handwritten document found at the compound in New Mexico, “Phases of a Terrorist Attack.”, includes talk of confronting and attacking “corrupt” institutions, including Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital.
One of the five from the compound, Jany Leveille , “expressed her displeasure with Grady Hospital due to the treatment her mother received there.”
There are jokes about dying in jihad and the desire to be a martyr. Notes include information about an underground stash of weapons and ammunition. A plan of escape through a tunnel if police arrived was included in the document.
Court documents revealed these and other details in the case against five adults who lived in squalor with 11 starving children in a ramshackle New Mexico compound.
Judge Jeff McElroy originally dismissed all of the charges against three of the five defendants arrested in connection to a New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” because authorities violated the state’s “10-day rule.” Under law, the state has to give the defendants a preliminary hearing within 10 days. The judge said it was a difficult decision to release the three but the rule left him with no option. The five were re-arrested by the FBI.
This Macon County and New Mexico Islamic compounds are not the first to be discovered in America. Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project told Fox News’ Stuart Varney that a group called MOA (Muslims Of America) is stockpiling weapons and training members of the compound in the their headquarters. In December 2016, Mauro told Varney that the Muslim camps are increasing their stockpiles as a way to defend themselves over fears of being raided now that Donald Trump is President, calling him “part of a satanic, Jewish conspiracy.”
In 2016, our good friend, Dennis Michael Lynch took a trip to Islamberg in Hancock, NY, as he tried to find out what was really going on inside these Islamic enclaves hidden throughout America in small towns with small police forces.
In 2017, a long-time associate of the U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), was arrested in New York following the discovery of a large cache of weapons that were intended for MOA’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, NY.
Ramadan Abdullah, 64, was arrested in Johnson City, NY, and is no stranger to law enforcement. Abdullah was previously arrested along with another man in 1977 for attempting to rob a Brooklyn candy store, resulting in a murder.
At the time, police searched Abdullah’s home and discovered enough material to build 50 bombs. Even so, the charges against Abdullah were ultimately reduced.
Abdullah was arrested on May 31 after attempting to steal four boxes of ammunition from a local Gander Mountain store. When asked by police about the purpose of the ammunition, Abdullah’s answers raised suspicion among police who obtained a search warrant for a storage locker he was renting in the town of Union.
During the search, the police discovered the following:
8 assault weapons
4 loaded handguns
1 loaded shotgun
64 high-capacity ammunition feeding devices
Thousands of rounds of ammunition, including .50-caliber armor-piercing rounds
Police searched other residences linked to Abdullah and found a loaded handgun, and more high-capacity ammunition feeding devices and ammunition, including .38-caliber rounds.
New York State Police Major Jim Barnes declined to confirm whether Abdullah was associated with terrorist groups or organizations but noted that police believe Abdullah had traveled overseas.
“There’s no indications there was a plan in place to commit an act of violence. However, it begs the question, what was he doing with all this and what were his intentions down the road?” Barnes said.
Johnson City Police Chief Brent Dodge said, “It’s just a tremendous blessing to be able to take all these high power weapons and high power ammunition off the streets, and who knows what kind of large scale tragedy that this investigation may have prevented later down the road.”
Abdullah is a longtime associate of the U.S.-based Islamist cult Muslims of America.
