What appeared at first glance to be just a garden variety dump filled with tarps, used tires, and trash was, in fact, another compound for Islamic jihadist Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, son of prominent and controversial imam Siraj Wahhaj – and the burial ground for yet another child victim.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently processed the compound in Macon County, AL, and described the property in a search warrant as a terrorist training camp complete with a “makeshift military-style obstacle course” using “five-gallon buckets with chain link fencing over the top.” Authorities surmise it was designed and used to teach children the military “low crawl” tactic.
From a local Alabama ABC affiliate, who toured the camp after FBI had processed the scene:
“We did see evidence small children lived at the Alabama compound. There were lots of old toys, dolls, and a girl’s bike. There was furniture inside the makeshift structure. A dresser and dining table all piled up, outside there were mattresses stacked up against it. And we noted a minivan with Georgia tags on-site. We know from an accident report there were at least nine people, seven of them children with Wahhaj at the Alabama compound.”
Sound vaguely familiar? It should: We’ve seen this set up before.
It’s Becoming Commonplace
The now abandoned property was simply a precursor to the Taos County, NM, terror camp raided last August, which finally resulted in arrests for federal terrorism, kidnapping, and firearms charges. The younger Wahhaj, another man, and three women remain in federal detention.
The raid came after local Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe became fed up with the FBI’s wait-and-see approach. His decision to swarm and search the compound allowed for the rescue of 11 emaciated, malnourished, dehydrated, and seriously psychologically abused children and a gathering of crucial intel: The children told authorities they were being trained to become what can only be described as suicide mission school shooters.
As President Trump’s initiatives have eradicated ISIS, the feds warn that the biggest threat of terrorism is coming from within our own borders. Former CIA operative, Joseph Assad, heralded in 2017 for helping extract Christians from Islamic State territories in 2015, warns that Islamic Jihad is alive and flourishing across America:
“There are so many people in the United States that are part of the jihad ideology, who are doing either fundraising here in the United States, training in the United States to conduct attacks here in the homeland and abroad.”
Assad also explained how the Islamic extremist movement has taken root across America by exploiting our laws and our way of life, such as religious freedom, and how terrorists are establishing rural sleeper cells that operate off the grid until they’re ready to strike.
The Clarion Project is a national non-profit dedicated to educating the public on Islamic Extremism. Their security analyst, Ryan Mauro, says it should come as no surprise that there are Jihadi training camps scattered across the United States. He names the Jamad al Fruco group as a prime example of a Jihadi training camp sponsor, giving reasons the U.S. continues to allow for their existence:
“They haven’t been cracked down on because they are not going out trying to kill people right now. They’ve done so in the past, but right now they are not. Why? Because when you build up an infrastructure that massive and your making millions of dollars and sending over to Pakistan, why would you carry out a violent plot and risk losing everything.”
Simply, the U.S. government will only act after an event — allowing the compounds to peacefully exist until the time is right to strike.
But Mauro also believes there are other sects that infiltrate and then manipulate – occupying large plots in both urban and rural locations, running for elected office, and calling their detractors “racist” to gain sympathies from Americans and the media. A sight all too familiar since the 2018 midterm elections.
Taking Over America
You may remember the wealthy imam of the Brooklyn Al-Taqwa mosque, Siraj Wahhaj, who once proudly proclaimed: “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.” Alleged to be a coconspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, he’s a man bent on replacing the Republic with a Caliphate.
He passed that belief on to his son – a disturbed Jihadist who is implicated in the deaths of two of his own children.
In 2009, Wahhaj met with former New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and told him he hoped all Americans would eventually become Muslim, as “Islam is better than democracy … Islam to prevail over every kind of system, and you know what? It will happen.”
Perhaps it will – but not through his son. In police custody and facing a bevy of federal charges, it seems unlikely Wahhaj the younger will be the one to make his father’s dream come true. If only he had been discovered before the death of at least two children.
