“You’ve seen a veritable rogue’s gallery of foreign terrorist organizations calling for terrorist attacks against us in a way that we haven’t seen in a long, long time,” FBI Director Christopher Wray told Congress recently.

America Is Going to Be Targeted for a Massive Terrorist Attack…Will You Be Ready?” asked TownHall’s Kurt Schlichter on March 25, 2024.

“It happened in Israel, and it happened in Moscow, and it’s going to happen here in America — again, and exponentially worse,” warned Schlichter. “The jihadis’ merciless war against the West — the Muslim fanatics are not so finicky as we are about our distinctions between the Jewish state, Russia, and us, the Great Satan — did not end when the regime media started covering other things. We may have fled Afghanistan and Libya and largely pulled out of Iraq, but that war is still going on.”

Schlichter is echoing a point being made increasingly by the FBI.

“The FBI is investigating “thousands” of threats related to the Israel–Hamas conflict,” reported Daniel Boguslaw for The Intercept on March 14, 2024.

ISIS remains a significant threat to the United States despite territorial losses. Its global network enables recruitment and radicalization through online platforms, fostering homegrown extremism.
