Welcome to Islamberg: Is the Islamic Isolationist Community in Hancock, NY Something to Be Feared?

Imagine living near the mountains where the sun is glistening off a small pond in your back yard, your sitting on the porch drinking a cup of coffee and watching deer prance through the trees. Its very peaceful and you feel as though you could spend the rest of your life enjoying the countryside and the beautiful scenery that surrounds you. Just then you hear guns firing across the hills. At first you think its just a group of hunters looking for the next big trophy or meal, but it continues and this time it doesn’t stop. You stand up trying to search the area for people however there is none to be found. Feeling uneasy about the whole situation you go back inside of your home and slightly brush open the curtains to see if there is a sign of anyone. As the days continue to pass along you notice that this happens at the same time everyday. What is it? Sparking curiosity you phone others that live nearby that are hearing the same thing and the surrounding countryside is starting to become uneasy.


If you live near or around the outskirts of Hancock, New York you will come to realize that there is a new neighbor in town. It is the city of Islamberg spreading across 70 acres of land full of bears, wolves, and Muslims with the words “No Trespassing” on signs surrounding the entire land. It may be the closest thing to “Mayberry” (from the Andy Griffith Show) in the mountains as the main road named “Muslim Lane” is the only drivable area. At the beginning of the city there is a man dressed in Islamic clothing (garb) and for those that wish to enter he requests that you turn around as that they do not accept unwelcome visitors into their city.

Looking over his shoulder you will be able to get a glimpse of where the horrible smell is coming from when your eye catches the displeasure of several outhouses and rundown trailers with what seems to have no power. All the secrets of this town are hidden within and no one, not even the local morgue attendants are allowed within the city limits and have to place the bodies on the ground. It is strange and the curiosity is very tempting, but the imaginative consequences are not in the least bit.

So where did all of these people come from? It is not evident where the hundreds that live there are from, but there are a few clues as everyone sports SUVs with license plates from New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Besides the activities that happen within the city most individuals that live in the town are employees of tollbooths or credit card processing centers.

You remember earlier the gunfire I was speaking of that could be heard around the surrounding areas? That was from a military training center that is on the east side of the 70 acres of land. You could find everything from climbing ropes fastened at the tops of trees, obstacle courses, and a regularly used firing range which it has been said that even the sounds of small explosions have taken place.

Now don’t get me wrong its somewhat like the rest of America. You know cars, housing, grocery stores with ARMED GUARDS! Yes, armed guards, the fact is these individuals know that they own the mountainside and are using intimidation to their advantage. People are afraid and wonder if it is some sort of center for bomb making and other venues that would be detrimental to America.

So who’s behind all of this to begin with? Try Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani who is part of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra which has been directly linked to the organization that wants to use violence to purify Islam. You will find the groups headquarters in New York scouring the prisons looking for convicted inmates to transform them to believe in the Jamaat ul-Fuqra cause. Once inducted they must simply abide by the laws of the ul-Fuqra which is considered by them their own laws that override any laws by the U.S. government.

You may be reading this thinking, “Well, that’s no where near where I live so whats the big deal”? Think again, Islamberg is not the only compound in the United States. There are various areas that have built up around many other states such as California, Colorado, Maryland, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington with more that are being built.

While the U.S. Government has considered this group to be on the US Terror Watch List (whatever that means) the Jamaat ul-Fuqra continue to become more powerful with continuous groups everyday. This is not a tiny association, they have literally brought thousands of people into their group and will only continue to do so as we sit by and “watch” them. However, on a piece of paper they simply look like a nonprofit charity. While it might be funny just reading how we are not doing anything about it as far as our government is concerned, its only a matter of time if this continues that we become the hunted in our own backyards.
