Twilight in America
Undercover Informant Exposes Secret Jihadi Army in America
A former undercover informant for the NYPD says a U.S. Muslim group with ties to terrorism is a "bomb" waiting to go off. His startling accusations are exposed in a new book by Martin Mawyer, called Twilight in America: The Untold Story of Islamic Terror Training Camps in America, whichdetails the history of "Muslims of the Americas" and its links to multiple murders, assassinations, fire-bombings, kidnappings and countless white-collar crimes inside the United States.
Founded in 1980, MOA is a front group for the more radical terrorist network known as Jamaat al-Fuqra. The group recruits mostly from the black community and it has a presence in New York, Virginia, California, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina and Georgia.
Though few Americans have ever heard of the controversial terrorist organization, most are familiar with Wall Street reporter Daniel Pearl who was murdered while trying to arrange an interview with its leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, in Pakistan. Mr. Pearl was investigating the group's connection to shoe-bomber Richard Reid when he was kidnapped in Karachi and held for ransom before he was brutally beheaded. Twilight in America completes Daniel Pearl's investigation into Gilani's terror group.
Ali Aziz, who spent eight years infiltrating the Islamic group for the NYPD, says the terrorist group has a secret army training for Jihad against America. "The ultimate purpose is to be ready when the time is right," he tells author Martin Mawyer.
MOA has nearly three-dozen Islamic camps, villages and compounds scattered throughout the United States. The group is headquartered in Hancock, NY and boasts that it has the "most advanced Islamic guerilla warfare training camps" in the world. Mr. Aziz confirmed many of the suspicions and rumors which have circulated about the Islamic group since its founding:
- MOA has a stockpile of illegal weapons on its compounds.
- MOA beats its members into submission.
- MOA engages in violent crimes.
- MOA uses scams, fraud and drug-running to feed its terrorist activity.
- The NYPD has enough criminal evidence to shut them down.
- MOA trains its children to grow up and become murderers.
"You have to understand this," Aziz said of the group, "All they've been living for their whole lives is to fight a holy war. They want to become gangsters for what they think is a holy war." Aziz calls MOA "modern warrior slaves" whose members would "set themselves on fire" if commanded to do so by their Pakistani leader, Sheikh Gilani. "These people are slaves," he says. "The scariest part of MOA is that anything can happen at any time."
