GRAND JURY INDICTS ROBERT R. DOGGART. THE MUSLIMS OF AMERICA


CALLS ON DOJ TO CHARGE DOGGART WITH TERROR AND HATE CRIMES
AND DISCLOSE HIS ACCOMPLICES
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Hancock Islamberg, NY) July 7, 2015, The Muslims of America (TMOA) applauds the indictment of admitted
would-be mass murderer Robert R. Doggart of Signal Mountain, TN, and states there is more work to be done.
On June 29, Federal Judge Curtis Collier rejected Robert Doggarts guilty plea on allegations that he
communicated a threat to injure or kill Muslims living in Holy Islamberg near Hancock, New York. Doggart, 63,
a failed congressional candidate, was arrested and charged on April 10 in connection with a plot to organize a
militia group of trained gunmen, burn down the school and mosque and annihilate the Muslims in Holy
Islamberg. Doggart planned to be cruel to the residents and to use an M4 rifle, explosives, snipers and
butcher innocent Americans with a machete. This information was provided via intercepted telephone calls and
Internet activity of the defendants by the FBI.
Doggart will be arraigned before Magistrate Judge Susan K. Lee on July 13 at 2:00 PM. The indictment is on a
charge of solicitation, but Tahirah H. Clark, legal counsel for the religious organization, feels this is
insufficient. The Department of Justice (DOJ) should additionally charge Doggart with domestic terrorism,
threat to injure or kill, attempt to burn a religious building and label these as hate crimes, she stated. Robert
Doggart targeted this community because they are Muslim, therefore his actions must be called hate

crimes. Additionally, his actions meet the legal elements of domestic terror and he should be so charged. If
the offender were a so-called Muslim extremist, without doubt that person would be charged as a
terrorist. With the case of Robert R. Doggart, the tide of the selective prosecution of charging defendants with
terror must change, she stated referring to a growing complaint that Muslim defendants are regularly charged
with terror and others are not under similar conditions. We have every confidence that DOJ will act
accordingly and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law, she concluded.
Ms. Clark also shared that while Doggarts accomplices are still unknown to the community, she is calling on
the court to release any identifying information on the accomplices to her organization. Court records indicate
that an unnamed individual was arrested and charged in South Carolina federal court in connection with the
Doggart case. She says her clients never received information about the SC defendant, but they believe the
individual is one of the accomplices referenced to in Doggarts criminal complaint.
On June 23, during an Iftar dinner with President Obama at the White House, a lawyer from the Muslim
Advocates, Madihha Ahussain spoke with the President regarding Doggarts threat toward Islamberg. Ms.
Ahussain showed him a picture of the communities children in front of a sign, asking "Why do you want to kill
us Robert Doggart?" TMOA is appealing to all Americans to call for the DOJ to aggressively pursue hate crime
and domestic terrorism charges against Doggart. TMOA will hold a rally in Chattanooga the day of the
arraignment. Please visit the website for more information.
