Top UFC Manager: A Tale of Espionage & Terrorism

A Hollywood-like spy story has been brewing beneath the surface in the world of Mixed Martial Arts surrounding the biggest manager in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). UFC manager Ali Abdelaziz used to be in a terror-tied cult known as Jammat ul-Fuqra.

Fuqra/CAIR Official Runs for Congress: 3 Progressive Reactions

12/28/2017 When the Clarion Project broke the story about a congressional run in Massachusetts by an official from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Jamaat ul-Fuqra (which now uses the name of Muslims of the Americas or MOA), we pointed out that she casts herself as “unapologetically progressive.” We knew it would be fascinating to see how progressives respond to the “progressive” candidacy of Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, who is running in the Democratic primary in Massachusetts’ 1st Congressional District against Rep. Richard Neal. An articulate, likable, African-American female attorney who styles herself as a civil rights activist would normally be…
