TEHRAN (IQNA) – People in the Muslim enclave of Islamberg in upstate New York say they are frustrated by repeated accusations that their community is a breeding ground for terror.

Terrorist Label Frustrates Islamberg Muslim Community


Though police and analysts dismiss those accusations, they have persisted from the time the enclave was settled near the Catskill Mountains in the 1980s.

Hussein Adams, chief executive of The Muslims of America, which operates this community, called the accusations a "bunch of nonsense”.

He says if the community has been training for terrorism for 30 years, why hasn't it taken place?'

Still, the accusations have made the residents mindful of security, especially after a Tennessee man was convicted this year on federal charges for what authorities say was a plan to burn down the community's mosque.
