Sorry, no transcript as of now. Video only. Worth the effort to view.
The video provides a look at this compound in the foothills above Fresno, CA. Pre 9-11, a Fresn County Sheriffs deputy was killed by a member of this peaceful Islamic community. The suspect (in the beginning trial phase still) broke into a empty nearby foothill home, when deputies arrived this guy was lying in the hallway floor with a rifle, and killed one deputy. This video is the first investigative reporting we have had on this Islamic community. The trail leads to FUQRA, a known terrorist group operating all over the world, and have several communities such as this one all over the USA. Here is an excerpt from an article of the Sacramento Bee...

There is no evidence that the Fresno group has been involved in any terrorist activities, officials say.
The group, according to a federal source, is part of Fuqra, an organization whose name means "poverty" in Arabic and which has had compounds in several U.S. areas.
Some Fuqra members in other areas have been implicated in past years in domestic terrorist attacks, and the State Department has labeled the group, known formally as Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as "an Islamic sect that seeks to purify Islam through violence."
The group south of Fresno operates an 1,800-acre compound called the International Quranic Open University, which sits on the former site of the drug addiction recovery cult Synanon.
The compound, a series of mobile homes shaded by trees, also serves as a U-Haul rentals location. A resident there last week refused to talk to a reporter, referring inquiries to a Visalia attorney who did not respond to a message seeking information.
Authorities have been studying the compound since the Aug. 21 slaying of Fresno County Sheriff's Deputy Erik Telen. Officials charged 20-year-old Ramadan Abdur-Rauf Abdullah with murder in the killing, apparently stemming from a botched burglary at a rural home.
James Oppliger, Fresno County's chief deputy district attorney, said the suspect claimed he had been living at the compound seeking psychiatric treatment from the Quranic university.
Oppliger said he since has begun studying the group and its possible connections to other organizations.
(Zavia Books) is the bookstore for this Islamic compound. It is called Koranic Open University. Note the books being sold. One of them is prefaced by ( Sheik Mubarik Ali Shah Jilani [Gilani]) a known terrorist. The trail leads from Baladullah (actually Miramonte, CA) to Pakistan, where Sheik Gilani lives. He is the head of Fuqra.
I have a better question. Why is the Navy using Vieques Island for bombinng practice when theres Baladullah?
Synanon was spooky enough, and now this? Ugh, I'm too close in Visalia.
Well, it's difficult to use the word "we" to describe the US.
Remember, there's Red Nation America and Blue Nation America. Blue Nation is -- for all practical purposes -- an occupying force, a contemporary variation of the Vichy regime, which imposes its policies on Red Nation America.
Red Nation America is not suicidal. Red Nation America is not stupid. Red Nation America would never allow terrorist camps to be set up within its borders.
But Blue Nation America ALLOWS this kind of stuff because Blue Nation America is, in a very real way, AT WAR with Red Nation America. And it's a war in which Red Nation America CAN NOT FIGHT BACK because WE -- Red Nation America -- have great passion and love for America and we know that if we fight Blue Nation America, then it would amount to a civil war. (Blue Nation America doesn't care about such an issue because Blue Nation America hates America and all the values Red Nation loves.) So, the kind of horrible status quo just continues. Blue Nation America -- like cancer -- continues to dissolve away the body of America over-all. Red Nation America does what it can to live honorable and peacefully. But sooner or later SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE.
If something like this is what this compound is for, then I'm OK with that. But I doubt it.
