Is Canada Free Press a reputable source? I'm not sure. So, take this story with a grain of salt:
Radical Muslim paramilitary compound flourishes in upper New York state
Apparently, these compounds have sprouted up all over the country. Closed to the outside world with a gun-toting sentry at the entrance, neighbors are scared silly about these outposts and the FBI isn't appearing highly bothered.
If this is all true, it's a huge deal. Not only are these people creating sealed off communities, which creates something of a public health concern, but they're almost certainly jihadi training camps.
(On a side note, I'm surprised people aren't upset just by the sealed off communities; I incurred the wrath of readers at another blog when they were discussing an alleged Catholic-only community. Is this any better)
To follow-up, a blogger who wrote about the story has had his life threatened in Washington for doing so.
Does it validate the story at all? I dunno. If this is all true, it's pretty scary.
Sorry about that. It seems my HTML ate some bad Linux or something.
