It’s Not Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Muslim Enclave, Paramilitary Training Comes to PA

Flip, Flip, Flipadelphia! Charlie, Mac, Dennis, Frank, Dee and the rest of the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” characters have taken on various tasks, from competing with a North Korean-owned bar that refuses to let inspectors check the enrichment of their beer, to trying to solve the gas crisis by filling garbage cans with gas to be resold. The gang seems to have their hands full. But it looks like it’s time for a sequel to their classic episode, The Gang Goes Jihad.

Last week, FrontPage Magazine published my article, “Muslim Enclaves U.S.A.” and it caused quite a stir. Joe Kaufman now has an article at the site zeroing in on what’s happening in Philadelphia, exploring in greater detail the effort of former music producer Kenny Gamble to create a Muslim enclave and train Muslim youths in firearms and self-defense techniques while dressed in military fatigue.

Kaufman needs to be praised for bringing this to light—it scared me, and I deal with these threats on practically an hourly basis. Kenny Gamble owned the first mosque established by the United Muslim Movement in Philadelphia in 1994. The group established the Jawala Scouts, which are learning the things I mentioned before. The Scouts’ legal officer is a CAIR official, and the second group tied to the Scouts is the Sankore’ Institute of Islamic-African Studies International. This group has many ex-felons, was founded in the Sudan, and had its offices raided by the FBI in 2006.

It gets worse. Gamble has a leadership position in the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) headed by Siraj Wahhaj. The late Imam Luqman Abdullah, who died in a shootout with the FBI, led an extremist group dedicated to establishing enclaves in the U.S. and trained his followers in jihad. He also used to hold a MANA position. The organization’s website has published an article decrying Abdullah’s death as an “execution.” That means that two leaders connected to the enclave effort and training of Muslims in paramilitary tactics have served in MANA. This group deserves a closer look.

One other point to make: The group Kaufman profiles is extremely similar in style to Muslims of the Americas, another group I talk about in my FrontPage Magazine article as well as in my latest NRB post. In the Christian Action Network’s “Homegrown Jihad” documentary, the staff discovers a new compound being built by the group in Wayne County, Pennsylvania with a tattered American flag hanging off the side of a trailer, wrecked by gunfire or knives. Local residents told us they heard gunfire coming from the site.

The problem that we face is that this is all legal. Unless there is criminal activity, law enforcement can’t do anything. But that doesn’t mean that Green Man can’t!
