Trump Designates Russian White Supremacist Group as Terrorists

The Trump Administration has begun a new phase in the war on terrorism by sanctioning a white supremacist group as a foreign terrorist organization for the first time in history. The action puts Russia on notice for its promotion of pro-Putin white supremacists within the West, including the United States. The State and Treasury Departments blacklisted the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM) and three of its leaders. The group has two terrorist training camps in St. Petersburg that are “likely being used for woodland and urban assault, tactical weapons and hand-to-hand combat training.” Tellingly, the group has offered paramilitary training to…

Obama Administration Dropped Huge Terror-Funding Case

Obama Administration Dropped Huge Terror-Funding Case

Why did the Obama Administration drop a huge terror-funding case? In 2014, I was involved in triggering a federal investigation into Islamic Relief, one of the world’s largest Islamic charities. A criminal case was presented by three government agencies, whereupon the Obama Administration’s Justice Department astounded the agents involved by declining to prosecute. It is time for Congress to demand answers. A federal special agent with years of counter-terrorism experience noticed my published research into the Islamic Relief charity and asked to meet with me in 2014. As I walked him through a trove of documents, he was taken aback:…

Exclusive: FBI Confirms Jihadi Training Camps in America

Newly-released FBI documents obtained by Clarion Project confirm Clarion’s reports that Jamaat ul-Fuqra is training members in isolated communes across America and Canada. The group’s "Islamberg" headquarters in upstate New York is its most well-known “Islamic village.” Fuqra, which now goes by the name of the Muslims of the Americas (MOA) among other titles, is a cultish Islamist group with a history of crime and terrorism. The group is led by Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani in Pakistan. Gilani’s name appeared in headlines in 2002 when Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was abducted and beheaded on his way to interview…

Islamist Infiltration of American Universities

Islamist Infiltration of American Universities

Ryan Mauro is the national security analyst and Shillman Fellow for the Clarion Project. This article was written with the assistance of Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum. In 1988, an FBI source inside the Muslim Brotherhood revealed that the Islamist group's proxies in America had a six-phase plan to "institute the Islamic Revolution in the United States." [1]  Among these front groups was The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a think tank committed to the “Islamization of knowledge.”[2] This ideology, as Professor Vali Nasr writes, entails the subordination of scientific inquiry to “the mere implementation of…

NM Tragedy: Could the FBI Have Saved the Boy?

NM Tragedy: Could the FBI Have Saved the Boy?

The New Mexico authorities have announced heart-breaking news: The remains of a boy have been found at the Islamist compound that was raided on Friday. It is almost certainly the body of disabled toddler Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who has been missing for nine months after being abducted by his father, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, and brought to the compound with 11 other malnourished children. The day the remains were found would have been his fourth birthday. The pain one experiences from reading the story is increased exponentially by a reality that is difficult to accept: The boy might have been saved if…

Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR

Secretary of Homeland Security Thanks CAIR

The Department of Homeland Security is continuing to use the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as an outreach partner, despite the Justice Department identifying it as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designating it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.

The author says it was written at the request of the Secretary of Homeland Security, General John Kelly. It is dated May 5 and can be seen at Pamela Geller's website.…

Hezbollah Terrorists Caught in US Planning Attack

Hezbollah Terrorists Caught in US Planning Attack

The pace of jihadist activity has been so intense lately that an incredibly important story has been barely reported on: Two terrorists belonging to Hezbollah, a puppet of the Iranian and Syrian regimes, have been arrested for planning attacks in the U.S., with one scouting potential targets in New York including JFK International Airport. Both are citizens who entered, exited and re-entered the U.S. Although the Iranian and Syrian regimes regularly organize terrorist attacks through its Hezbollah proxy, the plotting of attacks on U.S. soil and on Americans overseas is very significant, but not unprecedented. The two arrested terrorists are…

The Muslims of the Americas (MOA), a cultish Islamist group known for its “Islamic villages” in North America, will be announcing a “campaign to secure the liberation of Kashmir” from India today, May 2. MOA has been expressing solidarity with the Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist group, but don’t expect them to mention that in their press conference. Though MOA has always advocated jihad against India and Hindus, their radical leader in Pakistan’s rhetoric towards India became particularly pronounced last year. Its publications have become increasingly focused on calling on Muslims to intervene in Kashmir. That advocacy has included indirect expressions of…

Fuqra Congressional Candidates: 1 Down, 1 Remains

At least two members of the jihadi cult Jamaat ul-Fuqra, also known as Muslims of the Americas, ran for office for this year. The member running for Congress in Alaska recently ended his campaign after Clarion Project’s expose on him was published, but Fuqra’s congressional candidate in Massachusetts is still fighting to win the Democratic primary on September 4. She has garnered fawning media coverage that fails to mention the documented extremism of Fuqra, the ongoing federal investigation into the group or legitimate concerns about her ideology.   Alaskan Congressional Candidacy Ends The Must Read Alaska website reports that Gregory…
