Posted on 07/02/2010 6:13:47 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Thanks to U.S. taxpayers, an Islamic enclave is being carved out of the heart of the City of Brotherly Love. And how generous have you been with your tax dollars? You just gave $1.6 billion for the privilege of turning over all this cash to the Islamic community.
The person doing the carving is Kenny Gamble, the author of such hit songs as Love Train and Me and Mrs. Jones.
So far Americans have shelled out $1.6 billion in federal grants, loans, and charitable gifts to create an alleged Muslims-only community.
A convert to Islam, Gamble, now known as Luqman Abdul Haqq, is affiliated with the National Ummah Movement which seeks to establish sovereign Islamic enclaves ruled by shariah (Islamic) law within major cities throughout the U.S.A. The movement was started by Jamil al-Amin (the former H. Rap Brown), who is now serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison for killing two police officers in Atlanta.
Gamble managed to collect the $1.6 billion through Universal Company, a so-called charitable organization, which he formed in 1993. Gamble and his spokesmen say that the non-profit company provides a public service by cleaning up a blighted section of the south Philly, but local residents say that Universal has really used the $1.6 billion to create a Muslim ghetto. This allegation is supported by Gamble himself. Speaking to his fellow Islamists, the former songwriter quipped: We are not here for Universal, we are here for Islam.
The proof is in the pudding. The 800 block of South 15th Street now contains the United Muslim Masjid, an Islamic center, and a madrassah (charter school). All of these organizations have been created and sustained by Gambles enterprise. Rotan Lee of the Philly YMCA says: You look up and down the street and see men, women and children in traditional Muslim dress everywhere; you see the masjid right across from Kenny's house and security guards on the corners in kufis.
On the website of the Muslim Alliance of National American, the directors of Gambles company made the mistake of betraying their true intent by saying: By the Blessing and Mercy of Allah (SWT), the efforts of Universal Companies serve as a national model for what can be done with commitment, compassion, focus and careful planning and execution. Just another proof positive of the words of the Quran where Allah (SWT) states: Let there arise from among you a small group of people, inviting to all that is good. They enjoin the good, and forbid the evil, and it is they who attain success. (3: 104).
Proof of Gambles ties to National Ummah Movement was provided by a conference call from Jamil al Amin to the United Muslim Masjid., a mosque G founded on 15th Street. A transcript from the mosque reads as follows: "...A highlight of one meeting was when we had Imam Jamil Al-Amin on speaker phone talking to us from his Georgia prison. MANA (Muslim Alliance in North America ) and its members have raised and donated several thousands of dollars to his family and legal defense team. Imam Jamil has recently been transferred to a "supermax" prison in Colorado, and we ask that you make du'a for him." [source]
Further proof of the Ummah connection comes from Gambles role in the creation of theMANA, an organization formed to free Jamil al-Amin from federal prison and to advance the Islamic take-over of the United States by cultural jihad - - pushing for black/Muslim privileges under the guise of equal opportunity and civil rights.
Some of the Ummah mosques maintain armed militias. Others provide training in martial arts and guerilla warfare. Almost all operate beneath the radar of local, state, and federal law enforcement officials.
On October 28, 2009, the FBI raided a warehouse and two houses in Detroit and arrested eleven Ummah members on charges of mail fraud, the illegal possession of firearms, trafficking in stolen goods, and altering vehicle identification numbers. In the course of the raid on the warehouse, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, the ringleader of the group, opened fire on the federal agents and was killed in the ensuing gunfight.
Luqman Abdullah was the imam of the Masjid al-Haqq in Detroit, a mosque that was part of the Ummah network. He sought to claim a section of blight-ravaged Detroit for his group in order to establish a sovereign Muslim enclave governed by sharia (Islamic law). In his sermons, Imam Abdullah called upon his followers to launch an offensive jihad against U.S. officials and to carry and use firearms.
Imam Abdullah, along with Kenny Gamble, was a founder of MANA. Another founder was Siraj Wahaj, an un-indicted co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and imam of Masjid al-Taqwa in Brooklyn.
So how did Gamble squeeze $1.6 billion out of Uncle Sam?

We are becoming France! (which arrondisement is that, again?)
"Nice little mosque youse got here. Shame if anyt'ing was to happen to it." /Mafia>
Look! Now the atheists don't have to go to Mecca to convert religious fundamentalists.
"Build the wall."
“establish a sovereign Muslim enclave governed by sharia”
Yeah, right. That ain’t going to happen. It will be governed by the whims of a dictatorship.
I must say as somebody who has lived in Bay Ridge (Lebanese/Yemeni Muslims) and Astoria/Long Island City (Bangladeshi Muslims), I find the immigrant Muslims to be considerably less obnoxious then black American converts (I once live in Chicago’s Hyde Park, very close to Farrakhan’s house). I should also say, however, that the only person who tried to convert me was Tunisian, and he considered the NOI and its offshoots to be laughable heretics.
I want back the share of my tax dollars that paid for this, since as a non muslim I can never benefit from it.
I’ve been there, they also have some sort of muslim service at the Marriot Convention Center every weekend. Quite the freak show, woman in full burkas, men looking like clones of Farakan etc.
Will they use Sharia like it is used in Saudia Arabia?
So with the muslims grabbing control in the NE and upper MW, and the mexicans occupying the Southwest... I wonder what kind of “country” we’re going to have left in, say, 2030.
Sounds like something that could eventually come before a high-level court. Sounds like a question that SHOULD BE ASKED OF ELENA KAGEN!!!!!!!!
No. The executions will be done in sound-proof rooms to cut down on noise pollution.
Haul a herd of swine there and let them loose............
All land is claimed as muslim land by islamists. You’d have to leave the planet..............
No. The executions will be done in sound-proof rooms to cut down on noise pollution.
Swords don't make a lot of noise...........
A couple of years ago we took my son to Philly when he was looking at colleges. I couldn’t believe how many women were walking around in burkas. I saw mostly black muslims.
I’m guessing they’re not going to have any “greased pig” contests during their 4th of July celebration in that neighborhood this weekend...
More evidence that housing subsidies are destroying America.
Where were you looking? At Temple University, or somewhere else? No sarcasm -- I really want to know.
...I find the immigrant Muslims to be considerably less obnoxious then black American converts...The fact remains that they are invaders to our shores, and a pollution to our society. They must be removed in order for our descendants to live in peace, and free.
gosh, “multiculturalism” and “diversity” are so cool!
Another name for a Muslim enclave: target rich environment.
Maybe we can ‘cleanse’ it with a small nuke.
This will be the sign of the future - the conversion of these “muslims” is going on in the prison system (i.e., Malcolm X...) a complete over-reaction to the distruction of the family in the black community. Black men go “muslim” and black women go along for the “security” hence the wearing of head gear and burqas.
This is why the fact that the Obamanator’s being of muslim heritage didn’t bother a lot of the black community during the election...IMHO
didn’t one of these burn down in Philly the early 80’s?
What ever happened to separation of church and state?
I guess some religions are more equal than others.
We looked at LaSalle, which is a Catholic university. He didn’t like it there and he didn’t like Philly. He ended up in the Happy Valley at Penn State.
That’s right-what many whites don’t realize is for all practical purposes, Black America, has (90%) a Third world mindset. Most whites say “Well, they’re Christian, so they can’t be Muslim” Nope. In the same way that Haitians are “Catholic” while believing/practicing voodoo, and other Latin American cultures are “Catholic” while practicing Santeria, many in the black community support wholly the nation of Islam-some in part, others very much.
Those fat pigs capering and jibbering in the pews at Trinity Church in the Rev. Wright videos nearly all support the NOI-guaranteed
It’s easier to support than to be a member-the NOI as well as Islam has a number of restrictiona and rules-however the “black man is a god-whites are the devil” meme of the NOI as well as the myriad of excuses to blame black failure/dysfunction on someone else is very popular. As I said it’s easier to just do the hating rather than the self-discipline and fundraising that comes with membership. Farrakhan routinely sold (and probably still sells) out large public arenas-the DC Convention Center, the old Los Angeles Forum., etc. I knew several blacks in L.A. who, when he was in town would ask each other if they were going to catch “Minister Farkkhan” at the Forum.
Down right petrifying, isn’t it?
I live in a lovely southern town that is approximately 65% black and the community is church-going, mostly hardworking, respectful, etc. yet most voted for the muslim-in-chief because of his half-black face. A true shame...
How strange — “Me & Mrs Jones” is one of my all-time favorite songs, How in the world did that guy end up a Muslim?
Sounds racist and bigoted to me! Try this with a Christian enclave and see what happens!
This is what Orthodox Jews should be doing.
BTW, when are these moslems going to butt heads with the "gays" in Philly?
I suggest that any group or “enclave” that is not governed by our laws should not be able to vote under our legal system.
Any attempt to establish a muslim-only enclave in this country should be strangled in its crib. Such precedents should not be allowed to exist.
Well, that goes without saying.
Remember, however, that blacks attend church at a higher rate than any other racial group. Asians are the most secular, followed by whites.
Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, "Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed. (ibid, p.375)
In one Hadith, Mohammed referred to Blacks as Raisn Heads (Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256), and as pug nosed slaves in Sahih Moslem vol. 9 pages 46 and 47.
We already have one of those. It’s called Graterford Prision.
I don’t know-Korea, for example is a majority Christian nation, for what it’s worth. Vietnam is mainly Catholic, as is the Philippines.
My point is, so what if you “attend church”-if as in Obama’s Chicago church it’s a weird brew of racism, superstition and ignorance? And if you embrace other fringe cults
Believe that was a group called M.O.V.E. Lovely people squatting in a rowhouse. Several adults and multiple children.
You were smack in the north philly ghetto area up there. I had to ask, because you commented on the numbers of people in burkas.
Family members of ours have lived in center city, west philly, southeast philly and the western suburbs for generations, and I hadn't so far noticed any growing muslim presence in those areas except for the Kenny Gamble-financed mosque recently installed on south 15th st around Christian St., also a long-time black neighborhood in southwest philly.
I'm sorry you had a bad impression. Did you get down to the Independence Mall area and look at the national shrines there -- the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Penn's Landing?
