A Drive In The Country

Baron Bodissey takes a ride to rural Red House, Virginia, home to Jamaat ul-Fuqra, an Islamist group that endorses violence against the enemies of its vision of Islam.

His compelling post provides a background of Jumaat ul-Fuqra, and a travelogue of sorts:
What we do know is that an organization with a history of violence had set up shop locally, refused to let its girl children go to school, and had top members arrested and convicted by the FBI for firearms violations. In addition they have set up a remote and isolated "“Training Camp for Young Muslim-American Men"” -— to train young men for what? Auto repair? The food service industry? I have my doubts.
