of Islamic extremism right here in this country. – There’s actually a place
there called Islamberg, they have a sign it says
Welcome to Islamberg, it’s about a 60, 70-acre large compound. – I’ll never forget that phone call, they informed me that there was a plot. (camera shutter clicks) – [Robert] We’re gonna be carryin’ an M4 with 500 rounds of
ammunition and a machete. And if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds. (tense music) – And the media will never allow us, as African-American Muslims, to be presented as
victims, even when we are. – Should Americans be concerned,
or is this under control? – (scoffs) It can’t be under control just through monitoring them. ♪ We’re all defined by what we do ♪ ♪ Set aside our differences ♪ ♪ And let us give love a chance ♪ ♪ What we do will define tomorrow ♪ ♪ Don’t let peace slip

through your hands ♪ (peaceful music) – My name is Shukriya Rashid,
and I am 14 years old. – My name is Mohammed Saleem, I’m 13. – My name is Sabuti, I am seven years old. – My favourite part
about living in Islamberg is I get to be around a lot
of my friends and family. – It’s very beautiful, the greenery, it’s very peaceful. – I love it because it’s special to me. It means something. It’s a part of me wherever I go. (crowd chattering) – [Man] Sorry, if everybody
can move to the side, and sit down, sorry, on the side, on the side seats right over there. This is for the guests, the guests goin’–
– Up the middle. – The guests got the middle, yes, yeah. – What we’re doing today, what
we’re doing as a community, a global community standing
up against the hate. I believe, personally,
it’s going to change the tide of Islamophobia in this country. If 2015 was bad, I believe that 2016 is the turning point. (crowd applauds) Thank you very, very much. Enjoy the rest of the programme, and hopefully the sun will stay out to keep us a little
warmer to run all night. – [Woman In Beige Hijab]
Thank you guys for coming, it was so beautiful.
– Thank you. – Oh,
(laughing) Thanks so much, I’ll be back. – Yes you will.
– Thanks a lot. (sombre music) – The conditions in
Brooklyn were pretty tough. There was violence in New
York City, lots of violence. It was emerging, but we
had a small little niche in East New York where there
was dozens of Muslim families, and that provided some insulation. And so what the community
did was something that was unheard of,
which was, they invested in property in the Catskills. And of course, you hear
about people buying property in the Catskills now,
that’s a sign of wealth. (crowd chattering) This was a matter of survival. (crowd chattering) (woman laughing) – There’s people of the
media who’ve registered, that’s what I’m saying, registered, and told us, and communicated with me. If you haven’t registered,
if I don’t know you, how can I allow you to take footage from here, you understand? The danger that we are put in, by irresponsible journalism, irresponsible members of media? You see a lot of smiling faces here. But those lives are very
precious to me, you understand? (crowd chattering) (dramatic string music) – We’re seeing thousands of inmates convert to Islam while
they’re in prison every year, and many of them, when they leave, go to religious
communities like Islamberg. (ominous music) – [Announcer] You know,
we’ve been telling you all about France’s no-go zones, hundreds of Muslim-controlled
areas around Paris that outsiders and cops
don’t dare to explore, they chose just to give it up. We have them here in
the United States too, I bet you did not know that. – These are truly no-go zones, unlike the ones in Europe,
which I’ve visited, you could actually walk
into those no-go zones. You can walk in with your
cameras, you can talk to people. But in these particular no-go
zones, you can not get into. (crowd chattering) – We have a bakery, a boutique, – Boutique.
– We have a gift shop, here’s our masjid, it’s called Beit Allah – [Man In Glasses] You have a gift shop, and the community doesn’t
wanna allow visitors. – Oh we get people from all over. We have communities come over– – I know that.
– Yeah. – But I’m just saying,
the gift shop gives– – Oh (laughs) that’s right, that’s true. Do you know, I never
thought about that. (laughs) Well I have a gift shop,
you know what, I love it. (ominous tones) – Frightening examples
of Islamic extremism right here in this country. Thousands of radical Islamists
in so-called Islamic villages have been set up across the country. – The way Fox coverage
of Islamberg has worked from the start is, there’ll be some event involving Muslims and violence. Sometimes it will be a real event, sometimes it will be an alleged event. It will be enough to make the news. A day or two afterwards, there will be a Fox segment about Islamberg trying to make some sort of connection. – [Man On TV] This is where
they’re training for the jihad. This is where they’re training
people to cut our throats. – [Interviewer On TV]
How do you know that? – [Man On TV] I was up there
on the far east perimeter. You can see buses, like
school buses and vehicles that are riddled with bullet marks. – [Interviewer On TV] You see weapons? – [Man On TV] I didn’t
actually see the weapons. People have heard shots going
off, weapons being used. – This was a kind of Fox perennial, that they brought out, once a year, for some occasion, some excuse. That changed in January of 2015, after the Charlie Hebdo shootings. Fox didn’t just run one segment, they ran four separate segments
with four separate shows. – [Announcer] We told you
about the no-go zones, Muslim-controlled areas
in and around Paris, but these micro-states, typically
off-limits to non-Muslims, are not limited to France, they are spreading across the globe. In the US, nearly two dozen enclaves have popped up in nine states, belonging to Muslims–
– Joining us now is Brian Morrow, he’s a security analyst at Clarion Projects, he’s been tracking these Muslims–
– There’s actually a place there called Islamberg. They have a sign, it says
Welcome to Islamberg, it’s about a 60, 70-acre large compound–
– United States too, I bet you did not know that. Nearly two dozen enclaves popping up across nine different states. Now watch what happens when a stranger–
– Islamberg, Upstate New York, they have weapons, it’s private–
– On Fox and Friends about how we had identified
one of their jihadist enclaves. – [Robert] We’re gonna be carrying an M4, 500 rounds of ammunition,
light armour piercing, a pistol with three extra
magazines, and a machete. And if it gets down to the machete, we will cut them to shreds. It has to be this way. It has to be done. I guess you might call me a militant minister or preacher, and I think that there is a religious
war coming our way. It will be instigated by Muslims against all non-Muslim sects, and when it occurs, they will find evidence of our cruelty
in the bullet-ridden, disfigured and dismembered bodies of their brothers that we leave behind us. ♪ Proud to be an American ♪ ♪ Where at least I know I’m free ♪ ♪ And I won’t forget the men who died ♪ – This is our country, and we’re never gonna
give it up to anyone. We will fight, there
are 50 million patriots who are master gunners. – Remember the Alamo.
– Ever. – [Man] We are Americans. – [Woman] Three weeks ago we
said we’d be on this side. – [Man] When it comes to the narcissistic ninny nincompoops and
over there being all– – The President is guilty of treason. The President is a coward,
the President is a liar. The President is a traitor
and we want him impeached. – These fuckin’ Muslim retards need to be cut the fuck down. – [Man With Megaphone]
Listen, my fellow Americans. – Hang the lying Kenyan traitor terrorist piece of shit. He’s a traitor, hang him. – [Man With Megaphone]
We will join together and overthrow this thing, and with the Constitution– – Right.
– Necessary, am I right? – He is a sort of natural leader dresses well, bit of a
dandy, dandified sort of Southern gentleman look
with his red pocket square. It’s not hard to see why he got almost 10,000 votes (telephone rings) – [William] President Doggart. – [Robert] Yes, Mr. Tint,
how are you doin’ today? – [William] Fine. Originally designed tactics for ten men who are good gunners, who
are not afraid to die, and who are patriots to this great nation. I will get you assistance if you need it. And also, you know I own
a military surplus store. – [Robert] Oh, oh, I didn’t
know that, no kidding, okay.
– Well, hey. – [Robert] Shane, this is Dr. Bob Doggart calling from Signal Mountain Tennessee. Mark, this is Dr. Robert
Doggart calling from– Hey Steve, how you doin’, man? – Do you know who this is?
– Yeah, Tom, how you doin’? – Hello.
– Hi. – [Robert] Those guys have to be killed. Their buildings need to be burnt down and if we can get in there and do that and get out with not losin’
a man, even the better. (people talking at once) – [Robert] Shane, how you doing? – Good.
– Good. – [Man] Pull up that map
again of, hold on, Islam? – That’s the camp right there.
– Mm-hm. – From a practical standpoint, it’s easier to stick two or three guys in a utility vest and act like
they’re fixing a water pipe. Taint the water source. ‘ Cause then that leaves them wonderin’, who did this to us? (people chattering)
(baby crying) (ominous music) – Kill everybody.
– But there’s children up there. I don’t want us to do that. – [Robert] But there’s
always collateral damage. – A Signal Mountain man has pleaded Not Guilty in a plot to kill Muslims. Doggart wrote on Facebook that
the town must be destroyed, and that he planned to inflict, quote, “Horrible numbers of casualties.” He was apparently afraid
the town’s residents were planning a terrorist attack, even though local law enforcement
say no such plan exists. Now he could face a $250,000 dollar fine and up to five years in prison. – When I heard about his plans, Robert Doggart’s plans, I was on vacation visiting
family in Virginia. – I had gotten home and my parents told me that it was important
that we attended a meeting because someone had attempted to harm us. – I was scared, and curious as to why somebody would wanna
come here and hurt us. – I didn’t really know that someone would actually try to
commit an act of terrorism on their own country,
against their own people. – I was travelling, and I received a phone call from the FBI. They informed me that there was a plot. That an individual from
a White militia group had been planning an attack. I’ll never forget that phone call. It was a moment that, in
the back of our heads, knew that possibly would
take place one day. For many years, we were
victims and targets, and received numerous threats, but to actually hear it from a federal agent was quite real. (car whooshes) – I’m good, how about yourself? Ah, I’m hearing a rumour we’re
supposed to get some snow or some kind of rain or something in the next couple of days. I know, I know. You’re welcome, thanks
for checking in, bye bye. You too. Living in Islamberg serves as not only a sense of providing a solid community, but of providing
protection in so many ways. And I feel very vulnerable not being there in this climate that we’re in. – When we found out that he was free, it was frightening, and the kid gloves with which he was handled became unbelievable. And that no media outlet knew about it, had been talking about it, was stunning. And we realised that we really didn’t have a role to play as victims, we really had no voice, and
if this man had had his way, there’d be a bloodbath in Islamberg. And nobody was talking about it. So we thought about how we
would empower ourselves, and we held a press
conference, we wrote articles, we went on social media, and we made so much noise. – [Crowd] Stop harassing American Muslims. Stop harassing American Muslims. – [Tahirah] Because we thought
our neighbours, our friends, the American public have
been done a disservice by not knowing what was happening. – [Crowd] Stop harassing American Muslims. Stop harassing American Muslims. – [Anchor] Robert Doggart
has been on house arrest after he allegedly planned
to attack a school and mosque in Islamberg, New York,
but Muslim groups say it’s a double standard
that he’s not in jail, when a Muslim accused of planning an attack would be imprisoned. – [Crowd] Doggart,
Doggart American Taliban. – Other threats that Islamberg has faced are bloggers giving out
the address of the property and encouraging people to
come see for themselves, trespassing, and the mailing
of death threat letters. These attacks will not stop until citizens and the government stand
up for that which is right. – My message to Robert Doggart is that even if you and your
friends try to come here, you can never stop us,
we are always protected. I just can’t barely even talk to you, even if you’re not even
here, ’cause you tried to do so much horrible things, but just try again, you’ll be stopped. Your friends try, and they’ll be stopped. That’s all. (birds chirping) – [Man In Blue] Here, here, here. Yes. Yes. Excuse me, ma’am?
– Yes. – We’re with the local
news station around here, we’re looking to see if we can just talk to anyone who was in the courtroom and get some reaction on what
they’ve heard so far today. – [Tahirah] Oh sure, sure. – [Man] Which way? Oh, okay. – And he purports to be an
ordained Christian minister. So let’s own that for a minute. But I’m gonna say that I
reject that he was doing that in the name of any faith
that I recognise, okay? But it’s not just that he was
a White, Christian minister that’s the story, it’s that this was an African-American Muslim community. And the media will never allow us, as African-American Muslims, to be presented as victims, even when we are. Robert Doggart is part of
a dark underground network. He had a lot of supporters
who believed in his mission. And they need to see that this government takes these sorts of threats seriously. – [Saeed] “I don’t want to kill children, “but there’s always collateral damage.” Those are some of the last words you heard the defendant tell the source on April 9th outside the City Cafe. Those were the words of a dangerous man who was looking to find gunners and gunmen to help carry out an attack
he’d planned for several months. There’s only one verdict
supported by the evidence, and that’s Guilty. – [Johnathan] There never was an attack. Nobody was ever actually injured. We definitely haven’t heard
proof of religious intent. Anything you’ve heard about
why Mr. Doggart did this is because he believes
these people are terrorists. Why does he believe that? Well, we know Fox News
is one of the reasons he believes that, right? – [Joshua] Right, so Fox News
is a legitimate news source, most people who watch Fox
believe what they see. – Which, how effective was that, really? – It’s a gamble, right? It’s a gamble that there’s
at least four or five, there are enough hardcore
Fox watchers on the jury that they’ll just tie it up somehow. – I don’t know, I just felt that his closing argument, the defence, his closing argument was very disjointed. – It was this sort of gratuitous use of inflammatory situations and hoping to appeal to either the prejudice or the bigotry maybe
even, or the ignorance. What he hoped–
– Similar to what Fox News does. – Yeah, and what he hoped he would be able to connect the jury to. – And we don’t know what the jury is hung up on at this
point, but we do know just to give you a
little bit of background, it is composed of six white
men and six white women, and both alternates are also white women. For now, reporting live
in Hamilton County, Alison Levine, News Channel Nine. Clear. (soft strings) There were a lot of smiles, you know? Lots of pictures being taken, I mean. – Look, this is a big
thing for the community, just so that you understand
what the community is. It’s a very relatively small community, very private community, often hounded over the past 10 years by the media with all of the wrong reasons, and for all of the wrong reasons, and so what you have
today is the conclusion of a week’s worth of, what
is this community about? And truth-telling, and it felt good. And I think what you saw
as people came out smiling was finally we’ve been
heard in a court of law, because we’ve been tried in
