Jamaat ul-Fuqra Compounds

It has been noted that Jamaat ul-Fuqra occupy numerous areas around the country they refer to as "jamaats" - communities - often living in groups of trailers and such - and the members are somewhat mobile. In addition, they reportedly operate numerous paramilitary training compounds, including covert facilities, located in rural areas. Some of these facilities have been made public - namely a compound in Red House, VA; a compound just outside of Fresno, CA; and a mountain facility near Buena Vista, CO.

The report I mentioned in the last post from the National White Collar Crime Center contains a map illustrating areas of Fuqra activity and the locations of suspected Fuqra compounds.

And click on this table to see specific towns & cities listed

I'm trying to find more information on some of these compounds and I'll post it here as I can put it together. If anyone else has some relevant information, email me (politicalcp AT yahoo DOT com) or post to the comments.

This is great stuff; you've really done your homework.

I've notified people at a post called The Politics of CP Takes on Jamaat ul-Fuqra.

Thank you very much for the map and list of JF locations. I should note that I can't get the map JPEG to open, but the list was able to tell me what I wanted to know. If at all possible, I would like to know more about JF locations in the Oregon/Washington area. I noticed the purported compound in Onalaska, and I was wondering if you had anymore information.

The problem with the jpeg might have been your browser. I primarily use Internet Explorer, but I used Firefox yesterday and the formatting was different.

As for locations in Oregaon/Washington, I don't have anything more specific yet, but am looking.

Jesse Clark said...

Yep. It was the Firefox causing the problem. Thanks for your research into this issue. I for one am very interested in whatever you discover.
