Jamaat ul Fuqra, Muslims of the Americas tied to U.S. counterfeit trade
In the past we have reported on Jamaat ul Fuqra and those 45 Jihadi para-military training camps in the US. The Canada Free Press report below provides information as to how some with ties to Jamaat ul Fuqra likely secured funding for these camps. The report details how members of Jaamat al Fuqra's front group, Muslims of the Americas, set up by extremist Pakistani Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani, were selling counterfeit goods generating millions of dollars to fund their programs. Three suspects were sentenced in a U.S. Eastern Virginia Federal District Court for terms ranging from 21 to 57 months.
We have argued that Congress should be investigating Jaamat ul Fuqra and its front group, Muslims of the Americas, given this evidence of terror financing. You ACT members ranked this issue very high up on national matters to be dealt with by our government and Congress.
16 November 2007: Earlier this year, a multi-million dollar counterfeit clothing ring based in New York City with its tentacles reaching into various states and internationally was busted by federal authorities after a lengthy investigation. Investigation revealed that at least three of those arrested have definitive ties to the terrorist organization Jamaat ul Fuqra and its front group, the Muslims of the Americas, led by Pakistani terrorist Sheikh Mubarek Ali Gilani. The latest action in this case occurred this week. On Wednesday, 14 November 2007, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson sentenced Ronald Roundtree, 51, a member of the Muslims of the Americas camp in Virginia to 21 months in federal prison for his role in a multi-state, multi-million dollar counterfeiting ring.
