Islamberg: Is Town Of Islamberg Training Muslims For Beheadings, War?

Islamberg, located on the outskirts of Hancock, NY, is the subject of an investigation and book by author Paul Williams, as he revealed in FOX News interviews how Islamberg and other such "towns" have begun to flourish and the danger they pose.

The results of Williams' investigative work reveals what he describes as one of at least 40 "jihad training compound for African American converts," this one located in upstate New York, with burned out buildings, shooting ranges, obstacle courses, a bullet-ridden school bus, and a makeshift graveyard.
This is a hair-raising story, and should be a matter of great concern to every American.

Hard to imagine places like this are allowed to exist virtually unchallenged, especially in a state where a New York Senator -- Hillary Clinton, who gives herself high marks for leadership and who touts continually her tough stance on terrorism -- is running for President, and where government and elected officials who saw their state become Ground Zero for the 9/11 attacks, continue to hold office.

Williams says that the residents are "training to behead people like you and me" and that there are at least 40 such "towns" in the United States.
Once considered an idyllic remote resort setting in the Catskills Mountains in upstate New York, now Williams reports, "Nearby residents and visitors to the area rave 'they have armed guards' and 'if they shoot you, nobody will find your body.'

"'The place is dangerous. You can hear gunfire up there' ... 'They own the mountain and they know it and there is nothing we can do about it...'"
Williams report and extensive research, along with a complete walking tour of Islamberg and his on-scene description of the site is available at
Canada Free Press. It is a chilling account of secret meetings with ex-convicts and cult-type leaders with guns who claim it is their right to have guns because they are Americans.

    Islamberg: A Terror Compound in NY… or Misunderstood Neighbors?

    . . . .The doctor at the local clinic in Deposit, John Giannone, now fasts on Ramadan out of respect for the community's beliefs and has maintained a relatively close relationship with the group. When his house was devastated by flooding that nearly wiped Deposit off the map in June 2006, volunteers from Islamberg came down and helped him clear out the debris and clean up the rental home his family had moved into. Giannone says they even did the dishes.

    That flood was one occasion when Islamberg shone, according to many. According to several accounts, Islamberg men, women, boys and girls pitched in and helped clear debris, clean people's basements, distribute food and maintain the emergency shelter where residents gathered. On July 4, the Muslims joined the rest of the community for a dinner to commemorate their shared adversity.

    "We were all just overwhelmed, and I remember the thanksgiving prayer that was said to bless everyone, no matter who you are and to bring the community together. And in that moment, we were a community, we were together as one," Felber said. "I couldn't see a person that was going to be part of a terrorist group standing in a food line of thanksgiving there serving the community." . . . .,2933,281074,00.html

    Well, it is nice to see that you are reading the webpage. I am a veteran of Desert Storm, Southern Watch, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am also a resident of Islamberg and I have 19 years in the Armed Forces. I have many letters and decorations to prove my loyalty to my country. It is such ashame that the media can paint such an ugly picture to make people believe anything. You are very much welcomed to come to Islamberg. All is invited. I would be glad to show you my awards and decorations. I am a Muslim and a proud soldier that has served and is still serving to protect your rights as an American. Please feel free to come to Islamberg and seek me out. There is no armed guard to greet you. You will be greeted just as all the others that have come to visit. I will be glad to post the most recent pictures of the media that just had an interview with the community.

    One thing people must know is that there are thousands of Muslims in the military and are from many of your own communities. We are there fighting terrorism along with our Christian and non religious brethren.

    Features: Uncle Sam Wants US Muslims To Serve In the Military

    The Pentagon builds Islamic prayer rooms and hires imams to make military life more appealing.
    by Richard Whittle, Contributor to The Christian Science Monitor

    WASHINGTON As US troops battle Islamic extremists abroad, the Pentagon and the armed forces are reaching out to Muslims at home.

    An underlying goal is to interest more Muslims in the military, which needs officers and troops who can speak Arabic and other relevant languages and understand the culture of places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The effort is also part of a larger outreach. Pentagon officials say they are striving for mutual understanding with Muslims at home and abroad and to win their support for US war aims. Among the efforts to attract and retain Muslim cadets:

    West Point and the other service academies have opened Muslim prayer rooms, as have military installations.

    Imams serve full- and part-time as chaplains at the academies and some bases.

    Top non-Muslim officers and Pentagon officials have taken to celebrating religious events with Muslims overseas and here in the US.

    "There is a message here, and that is that Muslims and the Islamic religion are totally compatible with Western values," says Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England in an interview...

    For the past two years, Mr. England has hosted an iftar, the feast that ends the daytime fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va. His guests have included ambassadors, leaders of the Muslim-American community, and Muslims who serve in the US armed forces.

    President Bush also hosted an iftar at the White House in October, as he has done for several years. Gen. Robert Magnus, the assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, held one the same month at the Marine Corps Barracks in Washington for defense attach├ęs from predominantly Muslim nations.

    The US armed services don't recruit by religion, but the Pentagon estimates at least 3,386 Muslims were serving in the US military as of September. No precise figures are available because, while US service members are surveyed on their religion, they aren't required to disclose it. Advocacy groups put the number at 15,000, saying many are reluctant to reveal their religion. African-Americans represent the largest share of Muslims in uniform, they add.

    However uncertain the progress, the military is intensifying its outreach.

    On June 6 - the anniversary of D-Day, he notes - Mr. England helped dedicate a new Islamic prayer center at the Quantico Marine Corps Base near Washington, whose 6,100 marines include about 24 Muslims, according to Lt. Cmdr. Abuhena Saifulislam, a Navy chaplain who serves as their imam.

    The Marines also have allowed Muslims in their ranks at Quantico some dispensations to make it easier to practice their religion, says Lieutenant Commander Saifulislam, a US citizen born and raised in Bangladesh. During Ramadan, "they're allowed to have some time off to prepare for their fasting break and not to go to physical training" while fasting, he says.

    Muslim troops say misunderstandings and friction with non-Muslims in uniform arise sometimes, but practicing Islam in a military at war with extremists who profess the same faith isn't a burden, they add.

    Petty Officer Third Class Nicholas Burgos, a Sunni Muslim training to be a Navy SEAL, or commando, says instructors sometimes goad him by calling him "Osama bin Burgos" or asking if he's training to help the Taliban. But "it's all in good fun," he insists.

    "It's all about how much mental stress you can deal with while you're in training," Petty Officer Burgos says. "I just laugh or have a smirk on my face."

    His father, Asadullah Burgos, is the part-time imam at the US Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., whose roughly 4,000 cadets include 32 Muslims, 12 of whom are foreign students.

    "There's been some insults and some taunting, but it's been handled at the cadet level," Imam Burgos says. "Usually that's due to ignorance."

    Col. John Cook, the senior chaplain at West Point, says that after media reports about the academy's new Muslim prayer room, he got a call from a self-described "concerned citizen" who fretted that "the Muslims are taking over the world."

    "I told him, 'I'm a Christian chaplain, but I have the responsibility to provide for other faith groups,' " Colonel Cook says. Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish cadets all have their own chapels at West Point, he notes.

    Marine Sgt. Jamil Alkattan, a Sunni Muslim of Syrian heritage from South Bend, Ind., says his religion, his knowledge of Arabic, and his familiarity with Arab culture were major assets during two tours in Iraq.

    Not only was he able to teach fellow marines key Arabic phrases and explain that all Muslims aren't extremists, he says, but he also was able to befriend locals, who brought him vital intelligence. "They would come to me and say, 'I know where bombs are,' and this and that," Sergeant Alkattan says. "I never got to sleep. They would come at night time and tell me, 'Hey, I think these guys [insurgents] are trying to set you guys up,' or, 'I've seen these guys with an IED [improvised bomb].' I think it stopped a lot of things that could have happened."

    Under a new Middle East Cultural Outreach Program created by the Marine Corps, Sergeant Alkattan is one of six Arab-American marines selected to be stationed in major American cities as liaisons to the Arab-American community and advisers to recruiters.

    The program was conceived by Gunnery Sgt. Jamal Baadani, a Muslim born in Cairo who emigrated to Michigan when he was 10.

    "It is not a direct recruiting program," says Sergeant Baadani, but its goal is to educate recruiters to avoid cultural no-nos and foster good relations with Arab-American communities. The "overall objective ... is to develop solid relationships with the Arab and Muslim communities for the 21st and 22nd centuries. This isn't something that's just a Band-Aid treatment."

    Now lets speak about Paul Williams. He never asked to speak to any of the residents. He stood at the top of the road and took his famous picture. He then proceeded to the welcome booth and was greeted there. He never asked for an interview at all. He just ask to snap some pictures which he did. The only pictures he took was of the main lane and of himself. The rest of his pictures he took from our website and what he received from Fox News. He has made up a lie and has to tell many more lies just to cover up his one lie. I ask you to contact him and tell him to return to Islamberg just to interview me and the many other war veterans that have served to defend the honor of OUR COUNTRY THE GREAT USA. They don't want the truth just lies to make money.
