At least one of the women at the Islamist cult compound in New Mexico had links to al-Qaeda in that she was a big fan of al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, according to a public account from a Muslim activist and reports from sources who spoke to Clarion Project’s Clarion Intelligence Network.
The actual leader was most likely a woman from Haiti named Jany Leveille, who cult members called “Maryam” (or Mary), a name adopted to equate her with a modern incarnation of the mother of Jesus. She is the second wife of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj. RWT News you can read the full article here.
News of Leveille’s transfer comes a day after a judge ruled against the request of prosecutors to keep the five suspects imprisoned. Judge Sarah Backus said although she was concerned by “troubling facts,” prosecutors failed to articulate any specific threats to the community.
The judge has received death threats a day after she granted bail to five Muslims charged with child abuse and accused of training children at their compound to carry out attacks, court officials said.
