Wednesday on The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly was joined by Ryan Mauro, National Security Analyst for the Clarion Project, which studies extremism.
Mauro discussed five top organizations linked to Islamic extremism that are located in the United States.
One such example is the hamlet of Islamberg in the Town of Hancock, New York. Located 145 northwest of New York City, the secluded community is home to an unknown number of Muslims inspired by Sufi cleric Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani. Mauro said the compound is spread across 60-70 acres.
He showed O’Reilly a video given to him by a law enforcement source that shows members marching with rifles in apparent guerilla warfare training. As the group, Muslims of the Americas, is not designated as a foreign terrorist organization, they are able to operate in the United States with little more than FBI ‘monitoring’, Mauro said.
