CAIR-linked militant, Muslim boy scouts in Philadelphia

[tweetmeme] More disturbing news out of Philadelphia, where a Muslim enclave is being developed. Check out these images and read the story about a CAIR-linked militant boy scout group, below.

Most Muslim extremists first radicalize their youth via sermon and brainwashing. One group, however, is skipping those steps and is taking the youngest of children right to the paramilitary route. But this group is not in Afghanistan or Iraq. No, it’s in Philadelphia, the so-called ‘City of Brotherly Love.’

The United Muslim Movement (UMM) was incorporated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in June 1994, with the goal of creating a central mosque in the city along with an organization that would be able to “respond to the social, economical, political, educational, and religious needs facing our [UMM’s] communities.” Less than four months later, in October 1994, its first mosque, the United Muslim Masjid, was opened.

The owner of the mosque property and the face behind UMM is music and real estate magnate Kenneth Gamble, a.k.a. Luqman Abdul Haqq.

In the mid-1970s, following a nervous breakdown over personal and professional troubles, Gamble began to turn to the Islamic religion, getting involved with such groups as the Nation of Islam (NOI). At the time, NOI was moving towards the leadership of Louis Farrakhan, a combative personality most known for his anti-white and anti-Jewish statements.

Today, Gamble is a member of the Board of Directors (Majlis ash-Shura) of the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), a Muslim Brotherhood-related group headed by Siraj Wahhaj, an “unindicted co-conspirator” of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Gamble has been involved with MANA’s leadership since the group was initially established as a national organization in April 2001, at the UMM mosque.

UMM has interests beyond the building of mosques. One of them deals with children’s activities – violence-based children’s activities.

Jawala Scouts or the Jawala Scout Youth Leadership Program, an Islamic paramilitary boys group, was incorporated in Philadelphia in August 2005. It was founded a short time before that.

The children joining Jawala Scouts are as young as seven years of age. This is disconcerting, when considering some of the activities of the group, which include hand-to-hand combat, firearms training and survival tactics. Photographs from the group’s official website show the kids dressed in military fatigues, hiking through the woods, and engaged in wrestling.

What makes things worse are the type of individuals linked to Jawala Scouts. One is Carlin Saafir, the Legal Officer and 1st Lieutenant of the scouts. Saafir is also the President of UMM, a member of the UMM Masjid’s Board of Directors (General Council), and the Joint Community Outreach Chair of the Philadelphia office of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an entity affiliated with the terrorist organization Hamas.

The Registrant, Administrator and Technical Contact of Jawala’s site is Curtis De Veaux. In February 2005, De Veaux was suspended without pay from his job as a Philadelphia firefighter for refusing to shave his beard – deemed a security hazard – arguing that it was part of his being a devout Muslim.

The e-mail contact associated with the Jawala site,, appears to be that of Kenneth Gamble. That would make sense, as the group registered its corporation using the same physical address as UMM, 800 S. 15th Street.

Another organization associated with Jawala Scouts is the Sankore’ Institute of Islamic-African Studies International (SIIASI), an anti-Western preservation society for rare African Muslim manuscripts. According to the Pittsburgh City Paper, SIIASI “started” the scout program.

SIIASI has been the subject of investigations by the FBI, which included a June 2006 raid on the institute’s premises. There may be a number of reasons for the government’s interest in the group.

One is the fact that the membership of SIIASI primarily consists of ex-felons. Pictures on the group’s official website display SIIASI associates brandishing guns and swords. In one photo, which appears to have been taken in the U.S., an individual is seen holding a rifle on his lap, while a young boy kneels close to him.

Another reason for the FBI’s concern over SIIASI is the extreme rhetoric that is spread by the organization’s leader.

Muhammad Shareef is the Director of SIIASI. He established the group in the Republic of Sudan in December 1985, along with a small group of others, which included the Sultan of Maiurno, Sudan, al-Hajj Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad.

Shareef, a co-founder and former board member of MANA, left his Pennsylvania home to live in China, where he resides today. He has been outspoken in his hatred of the United States, frequently referring to the U.S. as “Amerikkka.”

Only last month, in June, Shareef railed against those whom he considers Muslim moderates, when he stated the following on the SIIASI official website: “This activist method [adherence to the Sunna (Way) of Islam] is diametrically opposed to the pseudo-religion redefined by the pacifist ‘imams’ who deny the obligation of jihad [holy war] and who have deluded their followers into the fruitless activity of supporting democratic constitutional government.”

Shareef’s aggressive language against the U.S. and in favor of violence is disturbing to say the least. But what’s more disturbing is that he and others from similar backgrounds have interaction with and/or connections to children, including those who are just starting to develop thoughts of their own.

Jawala Scouts are no Boy Scouts. The group is run by those who wish to use the most innocent in our society for sinister means. It is a type of abuse that, up until this point, has gone unnoticed. But now that it’s been made public, the public needs to speak out, so that the city of Philadelphia does the right thing.

What we do not want to hear is that the next terrorist attacker was formerly a member of Jawala Scouts. ~end

In case CAIR decides to wipe clean their connection:

  1. REPORT THEM to the FBI. Send the FBI a pdf (free from politcal islam: and show them what jihad REALLY means. This is NOT a boyscout troop – these are future jihadists of America. WRITE the creed of the muslim brotherhood (“Allah is our objective. The prophet Muhammad is our leader, Quran our law. Jihad our Way, Dying for Allah is our highest hope.”).

    islam is a dangerous ideology that wraps the arua of holiness around their atrocities they do to others and the muslim brotherhood is an international terrorist organization affiliated with such ilk as hamas, al Qaeda, abu sayaff, etc.

    islam needs to be taken out of the religion category and put into a dangerous political ideology. Just because they dress differently and use a god that doesn’t make them any different from any other radical, bloodthirsty organization. ALL radicals have members who don’t fight – but they support their radicals as do muslims via zakat, deception, etc.

  2. the teaparty is accused of inspiring violence and this is ignored

    nancy Pelosi said the RHETORIC is so nasty it’s dangerous

  3. Mike Malloy: Franklin Graham Should Blow His Own Brains Out

    By Tim Graham (Bio | Archive)
    Sun, 05/09/2010 – 23:13 ET

    Christian evangelist Franklin Graham’s unkind words for Islam spurred some typical abuse last week from rabid leftist radio host Mike Malloy, the former CNN employee. As usual, on Thursday, Malloy wanted his hate object to commit suicide:

    MALLOY: Somebody ought to lock this guy up and give him a bag of cocaine and just let him blow his own brains out. He really, I mean…it’s common knowledge that Franklin Graham is a cokehead of the worst kind…

    Kind of like George W. Bush; look what happened to George W. Bush; Bush became this delusional, dry-drunk God talked to him, told him to invade countries…Jesus!
    Story Continues Below Ad ↓

    So Franklin Graham, apparently God told him to bust up on Muslims and continue to agitate and irritate a billion people on, um the planet; but now Franklin Graham is warning the President of the United States you’re going to lose a millions of evangelical votes…Yes you are! (sighs)

    He said, uh, because he was denied entry into the Pentagon, which Obama has nothing to do with. But Graham is a coke freak; he is, uh, an ex-junkie, and that means his head is planted wherever he needs to be in order to find a line or two…

    Malloy had also ranted against Franklin Graham on Wednesday’s program:

    MALLOY: Now you’re thinking, Franklin! Every once in a while when you’ve done too much coke, a thought will get through, a real thought! In the interview in USA Today, Franklin also renewed his criticism of Islam, saying Muslims do not worship the same God the father I worship; uh, yes they do; but oh, oh the father thing in there…I see, OK.

  6. Dear Hilarious; welcome to OBAMANTION
    defamation of Christians and JEWS is not a problem here- in fact Holder’s dept of “justice” will not help you pursue your case or any hate crime against you -he says you deserve any hate comes your way as retribution for slavery and b/c you are a white person and only whites can racist —
    However if you dare insult an Muslim or African American they will nail your ass to the wall- ruin your reputation and your life
    yes we used to live in the good old USA
    now we live in OBAMANATION

  7. This is idioc work of a lazy journalist who neglected to complete all of their research. In fact the Jawala Scouts instills badly needed discipline in innercity youth to provide guidance and a love for their religion, and respect for their neighbors. They are required to complete community service projects such as cleaning vacant lots, feeding the hungry, and supporting others within their community. They are learning the same displine that children are learning in the Valley Forge Military Academy, yet I see know similar article in regard to that institution. May peace be upon you…

    • Talk about lazy – and presumably idiotic although you are unable to spell the word – that is an absurd comparison for many reasons including, you must be 18 to enter the VFMA&C and it is a “MILITARY” academy… not to mention the academic standards required just to get in….

  8. Farida it is the love of relgion part that is the problem not the community service it hides behind- Hitler youth instilled good manners and discipline too—

    it also instilled values like Aryan supremacy and world domionation-same as ISLAM which I do not consider a relgion but a political military ideology of conquest

    the love of ISLAM requires devotion to ridding the world of non MUSLIMS

    and that is not a value for little AMERICAN boys
