Further Update: More Fox News video here, this one with Shepard Smith.
Update: The video of the Sheikh Gilani feature with Catherine Herridge’s interview can be found here. [Wazpi has a much quicker wav file streaming video link in the commments — Dymphna]
Ms. Herridge says, “They have communes stretching from coast to coast.” She also talks about the fact that the sheikh’s disciples are now required to send 30% of their income (bumped up from 10%) to their leader in Pakistan.
After a year and a half of obscurity here and at CP’s place, it is very satisfying to see this information escape into the MSM.
Fox News says it has received government documents regarding the methods of transferring money to Pakistan. It is nice and basic: small amounts — a pocketful at a time, to avoid the government reporting requirements — are carried overseas and deposited into Sheikh Gilani’s hands.
Regular readers know that you heard it here first, in October 2005.
Further Update: And let’s not forget A. Jacksonian’s detailed and thorough analysis of the aerial photos of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra compound near Commerce, Georgia.
Larwyn reports that Fox News will be covering Red House tonight. Supposedly an ex-member will be interviewed and will spill the beans about their connections with Sheikh Gilani [see sidebar for all the stories].
Larwyn also says:
BREAKING – MUSLIMS OF AMERICA in Redhouse Va (see Gates of Vienna coverage) A former member admits that they work and send up to 30% of their $$$$ to Pakistan. ON FOX NOW — Catherine Herridge reporting. Check GOV who will be on this fully, I am sure! Oh, members also reported to have traveled to Trinidad!
But Gates of Vienna does not have a TV so anyone watching Brit Hume tonight at 7:00 pm is welcome to give us any information that comes up since we won’t be watching it.
Anybody want to volunteer to do a quick and dirty transcript of the interview? We can put it up then.
It’s so nice that after all these years, and the heckling from the Left, and the County Board of Supervisors’ insistence that these are “good people” that finally the MSM is going after this story.
Somebody kiss Fox for me.
