There has been much written and commented on in the media about the threat from “domestic” terrorism in recent years.
At Terror Trends Bulletin, we agree that there is indeed a serious threat from domestic terrorists.
But unlike the Leftist media, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano or the rest of Team Obama, we don’t see the threat of domestic terrorism coming from veterans, Tea Party members or those committed to preserving our 2nd amendment rights.
No, an objective analysis of the situation indicates that the domestic terrorist threat looks and sounds much like the foreign terrorist threat.
In other words, the domestic terrorist threat is primarily a threat from Jihad.
Here is a list of people involved in terror crimes and plots here in the USA in recent years. Each person on this list, without exception, is Muslim. We don’t take any particular glee in that. You can call us bigoted or racist for pointing it out if you want, but that doesn’t change the facts. Hardly a month has gone by over the past 4 years in which a Muslim somewhere in America wasn’t implicated in a plot to commit an act of Jihad. In some cases, they were unfortunately successful. In some instances, terrorists on this list are now dead (which is a good thing as far as we’re concerned).
The list is by no means exhaustive; it wasn’t meant to be. It’s merely a list of 86 domestic jihadis we were able to cobble together from various law enforcement and media sources in about 45 minutes’ time. Anyone can do a search on the internet for these names and see the back story on each one. Our guess is that most people had no idea that the US had caught 86 domestic jihadis in recent years. That is primarily due to the fact that the news media in this country downplays the threat from jihad. (NOTE: If we have caught 86, how many are still out there across America?)
The threat from terrorism domestically here in the US is primarily a threat from Jihad. And that’s a fact.
