Skip to comments.A Bird's-Eye View of Jamaat ul-Fuqra (Aerial Pics of Their Compound in Virginia!)

Last month I reported on the investigation of Jamaat ul-Fuqra as carried out by the Christian Action Network. At the time I met with Martin Mawyer and his associates, the group had just completed a flyover of the Red House compound in a private aircraft. Now Martin has very kindly made the resulting aerial photographs available to Gates of Vienna.
For readers who are unfamiliar with Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a quick synopsis: It was founded in 1980 in New York by a Pakistani Sufi named Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, along with a front organization called The Muslims of America. Most of its members are American citizens, converted to Islam and recruited via the prison system. The group has been associated with assassinations and firebombings in this country and Canada, and various members have been charged with and convicted of criminal offenses. It is thought that the group obtains its funds through welfare fraud, money laundering, and other illegal activities. JF has established numerous compounds, known as Jamaats, mostly in remote rural areas in the U.S.A. and Canada. Jamaat ul-Fuqra has been named as a terrorist organization by the State Department.
Martins plane circled the compound several times, giving the photographer an opportunity to snap a number of shots. This is an overview of the main part of the property, looking approximately west. Rolling Hill Road (SR 615) is the paved road at the left.
The entranceIn this view of the compounds entrance you can make out the guardhouse and gate, as described in my first post about Jamaat ul-Fuqra. The Muslims of America sign is also visible in the center left of the photo. A close-up ground shot of the same sign is shown below.
Clintoon would probably feel at home there, molesting women and denouncing the U.S.
Rolling Hill Road. Anyone know what town this is in?
Pamplin. Answering my own question.
Best I can tell is that SR615 runs from Strom to New Castle (northwest of Roanoke).
A place in the sun for a Daisy Cutter!!!!
Thanks! I brought it up on Google Earth, but the res is low there unfortunately.
Same here...vy low res.
Correction (but still low res)...it is located in Red House VA about 15 miles due south of Appomattox.
Ok, thanks! Wasn't sure if Red House was a place or a building.
Mapquest.com has a very clear pic of the compound a little east of Red House...on above SR 615 on Sheikh Gilani Lane.
Sorry for the delayed response. Had to run an errand. Thanks for the additional info. I'll check it out. Now if we could just set up a database. ;)
MOAB would be my choise
Bomb coordinates please.
At the link I posted, look for Gilani Ln. on the right. It's easiest to find the compound via the street map, and then switch to the aerial view once you've honed in on the proper streets.
I see one way in, one way out. That's not very smart for a bunch of radical muslims.
Paging Janet Reno, we have a legitimate target for you.
