FBI Director: US at High Risk of HAMAS-Inspired Terror Attacks

Washington DC, nice to see the FBI focusing on the “bad guys” . FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Oct. 31 that the U.S. is at significant risk for a HAMAS-inspired homegrown violent extremist terrorist attack. The warning follows the Oct. 7 terrorist group’s attack on Israel. FBI intelligence analysts assessed that lone actors will be inspired by or react to the ongoing Middle East conflict. These individuals or small groups pose the most likely threat to Americans, especially Jewish, Muslim and Arab communities in the U.S. “The actions of HAMAS and its allies will serve as an inspiration the likes of which we haven’t seen since ISIS launched its so-called caliphate several years ago,” Wray told the U.S. Senate’s Homeland Security Committee during a recent hearing on worldwide threats. In just the past few weeks, multiple foreign terrorist organizations, including ISIS and al-Qa’ida, have called for attacks against Americans and the West. While the terrorism threat level has remained elevated throughout 2023, Wray said the Israel-HAMAS conflict has raised the threat of an attack against Americans in the U.S. to a “whole ‘nother level.” He noted that there’s no information indicating HAMAS’s intent or the group’s capability to attack the U.S. but said it’s a possibility that cannot be discounted.
