CAN mailing opens new round in effort to down signs; “Over the past two decades, a terrorist group known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra, or ‘Community of the Impoverished,’ has been linked to multiple murders, bombings and various other felonies throughout the United States and Canada.” – U.S. Department of Justice report
(Christian Action Network) Christian Action Network President Martin Mawyer announced today a new round has opened in a long-standing effort to have signs honoring a big name among international terrorists taken down in Charlotte County, Virginia.
The focus again is on Sheikh Gilani Lane; this time Mawyer furnished every household, business, church, civic group and government official of the county with information of several law enforcement and U.S. State Department findings.
The road sign is erected at the entrance of an Islamic community in Red House called “Muslims of America,” it honors their leader, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, last known to reside in Pakistan.
“We are distributing 7,000 brochures through the mail this week,” Mawyer said. “It is a disgrace and dishonor for residents of Virginia to have a road sign, that also appears on the official maps of our great state, honoring a known terrorist; this road sign must be removed.”
The brochure cites an official law enforcement report outlining how as Muslims of America leader, “Gilani is now known as an international terrorist,” quoting the report titled “Jamaat ul-Fuqra: Gilani Followers Conducting Paramilitary Training in U.S.”
Mawyer said the sign is not just a symbol, it is a very real indicator – or sign if you will – of the local government’s dangerous lack of understanding about the threat facing Charlotte County residents and neighbors of surrounding localities.
Mawyer said in response to CAN News questions about opening up the issue again at this time, is it intended to influence Tuesday elections. “We have no interest or activity with any campaigns,” he said.
“This does coincide with a time of higher awareness among Charlotte County residents, and all of us, about the issues that impact our communities – election time is always relevant that way.”
He also said the information out this week is just the beginning, there’s more to come. “We have a smoking gun on this guy,” Mawyer said. “We’re just planning the most appropriate time to release that.
“This is just the beginning of round two, or I should say it’s more like round six or seven by now,” he added. “We’re giving out some basic background to the people of Charlotte County, then we’ll decide on when the other shoe should drop.”
Mawyer said the brochure is designed to educate county residents about Gilani and Muslims of America, adding Homeland Security Department information from as recent as 2005, reports:
“Other predicted possible sponsors of attacks include Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani-based group that has been linked to Muslims of America,” quoting Homeland Security.
Mawyer’s lobbying effort is reaching a one-year mark since last November when he steered Christian Action Network’s focus to include trying to convince Charlotte County supervisors to recognize the terrorism link and have the sign removed.
