An Islamist group with secret compounds and questionable ties to radical organizations is allegedly stockpiling weapons to use in anticipation of raids they believe may be ordered by the Trump administration.
These groups aren’t collecting weapons in the Middle East.
It’s happening right here in America.
According to reports, the group is fearful of the Trump administration re-opening investigations into whether or not the group is a “homegrown terrorist organization.”
Via Fox News:
Muslims of America, which is headquartered in Hancock, N.Y., and run from Pakistan by leader Sheikh Gilani, operates 22 “Islamic villages” around the nation. The compounds are legal, but Gilani has recently ordered all unarmed members to gather firearms, licenses and hunting permits, according to Clarion Project. Gilani believes his group will be targeted by Trump.
“I foretold disastrous results should this man be elected as the American President,” Gilani said in a statement shortly after Trump was elected president on Nov. 8. “He has come as a test and trial for the faithful adherents of the holy books.”
Judge Andrew Napolitano analyzed the report and explained that as long as the groups are heeding New York State gun laws, they are within their rights to gather up firearms.
He did admit however, that it’s “creepy” for the group to be stockpiling weapons not for simple acts of self defense but rather, because they expect a confrontation with the federal government under President Trump.
Islamberg is listed on the Clarion Project website as a possible “radicalized community in the U.S.,” linked to a Pakistani militant group known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra.
It claims the group has 22 locations in the United States, with Islamberg in New York being one of the more prominent locations.
