Investigators recovered 23 rifles & shotguns, & found 3 IEDs in the home of 1 of the suspects. Each suspect is charged w/ the intent to use the IEDs to attack #Islamberg, a community of #Muslim families. This isnt the 1st time the community's been targeted thedailybeast.com/four-accused-o…
In 2015, #Tennessee minister, Robert Doggart, plotted the deadliest attack on US soil since 9/11, against #Islamberg. No terrorism charges were brought against him. He was recorded saying "& if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds.” theguardian.com/us-news/2015/j…
Just last yr, a number of far-right, anti-Muslim groups led by the American Bikers United Against Jihad, organized an event to harass & intimidate the small community of 200 ppl: thedailybeast.com/anti-muslim-bi…
Such violent plots do not occur in a vacuum. They are the result of widespread #Islamophobia. Anti-Muslim figures have long spread a dangerous conspiracy theory alleging #Islamberg is a terrorist training camp. splcenter.org/hatewatch/2018…
Ryan Mauro, who's made appearances on Fox News, heads the #FuqraFiles, an online initiative of the @clarionproject. The initiative advances conspiratorial claims abt #Islamberg & predominantly rural African-American #Muslim communities. bridge.georgetown.edu/research/facts…
Fuqra Files published a "documentary" advancing the dangerous conspiracy against #Islamberg, alleging tht rural communities built by predominantly African-American #Muslims are terrorist training camps. The clip is narrated by anti-Muslim validator, #ZuhdiJasser
Zuhdi Jasser sits on Clarion's advisory board & engages in fear-mongering to portray Islam & Muslims as potential threats. He prev served as a witness for Peter King anti-Muslim hearings: islamophobianetwork.com/echo-chamber/z…
The "documentary" has helped advance & promote dangerous claims against a small community, which has resulted in numerous far-right, anti-Muslim individuals plotting to violently attack #Islamberg. Clarion Project has a history of producing such material bridge.georgetown.edu/research/facts…
It's not just anti-Muslim individuals who've been receptive to Clarion's content. Clarions films hve been used in trainings w/ law enforcement, the U.S. military, & the federal govt, illustrating tht Islamophobia is embedded w/in the U.S. government. bridge.georgetown.edu/research/facts…
