It is called the Islamic Center of Middle Georgia. If you only see the front facade, it seems harmless enough. The building is very long, two stories tall, and the windows are all on the bottom story. Where those windows start, the decorative facade stops, revealing cinder block. The back and the left side are shrouded in the natural trees and underbrush typically found in rural areas. Not far from the back of the building, there is a small lake that nobody really knows about. The entire property is fenced off, including the parking lot. If it were not for the large letters on the front of the building, no one would know what is there: ICMG...innocuous enough. Carved into the facade below the letters is Islamic Center of Middle Georgia. Okay, every religion has churches spread out around the nation. Just because it says "Islamic" doesn't mean they are terrorists. Or at least, this is what I keep telling myself.

Lately, there have been a lot of stories concerning the Islamic State (IS) having training facilities all over the United States, some of the stories say twenty two, some say thirty five. I have come to the conclusion that they are both right, because there is more than one faction of Islamic terrorists here. There are the Muslims of the Americas (MOA), a Pakistani terrorist group led by Sheikh Mubarack Ali Gilani. The Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Advocates, Council on American Islamic Relations, Sikh Coalition, and Women in Islam, Inc. are a few of the other covert groups. There is one interesting detail that every American needs to be aware of: these people are not creative. They give Muslim-based names to their compounds or the street the compound is on, Aliville, Mecca Center, Holy Islamville, Madinah Village, Islamville Way.  There are at least two and as many as four training centers in the state of Georgia. There are another twenty 'Islamic Centers' throughout the State. Just to satisfy my curiosity, I googled 'Islamic State of Middle Georgia.' Several results showed up—two in Macon, Georgia and one in Centerville, Georgia, that was the one I wanted.

The website was common enough, until you tried to navigate passed HOME. Titles like Child Care, Building Continues, Calendar, and several others titles were blocked unless you were a member. Why would they block 'Child Care' or 'Sunday School' from someone who wanted to join, but wanted more information, first. Churches do not block any of their 'public' website information, they want people to learn everything about their church and hopefully join. The only real information, concerned the cleric's background and beliefs. This was so politically correctly written that it nauseated me. The hair on the back of my neck tingled and I broke out in a cold sweat. Before I ever entered a church of any kind, I would want to know about their child care. This website was like the front of the building, a facade.

There was a wealth of information on the two training camps that all of the previous stories referenced. The first being Aliville, Odum, Georgia. I could not get a response on mapquest that Aliville even existed. This camp is supposedly located between Odum and Jessup, Georgia. I saw several areas that fit the appearance of what the camps look like from satellite imagery. There is not much in that area, farmland, forests, and swamps, exactly the terrain that these camps are set in. The thing that makes this camp so interesting, is it is centrally located between two nuclear power plants.

The second camp is in Commerce, Georgia, Madinah Village. This is a rather large area with several buildings and trailers, they even boast of a school that must take place around a pine tree, mapquest could not find the building. This 'commune', 'village', 'training camp' is directly linked to Muslims of the Americas also known as Jamaat ul Fuqra. There are videos of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani at this camp teaching the recruits. One of the key ideas that he preaches is "get close to them, then kill them." Daniel Pearl found this out the hard way, at the hands of Gilani. Security at this camp is evident everywhere. The recruits are being well trained at this facility. An interesting detail that was revealed, is the mosques, also called Islamic Centers, are multifunctional as religious centers, religious learning centers or schools of some form, and also as recruiting centers.

The FBI and the Regional Organized Crime Information Center know that these are paramilitary training facilities, but cannot do anything about it. There are three major problems. The first, Jamaat ul Fuqru has been linked to over fifty attacks right here, including firebombing a power station in Leesdale, Colorado, but it is not designated as a terror organization, so they cannot move on them. Even though Muslims of the Americas is the English translation for Jamaat ul Fuqru, the U.S. government consider them to be two separate entities. Therefore, law enforcement once again, cannot move on them. And finally, they have First Amendment protection, freedom of Religion. I wonder why the atheists haven't attacked this religious group like they do Christians.

I do not know what group the Islamic Center of Middle Georgia is affiliated with, but the most likely candidate is Muslims of the Americas. But to be perfectly honest, I do not care what group they are affiliated with and I don't care what they do in that building. What I do care about is the fact that it is 1.7 miles from my house. They are literally in my backyard. Even more frightening, they are 5.09 miles from a massive Air Force Base that is known to work on top secret, new flight systems.
