“Right-wing extremists” are allegedly utilizing scare tactics on the American public, according to an NBC News report. They spread claims that terrorists sympathetic to Hamas could strike the United States and that the open southern border could exacerbate this risk. The FBI reportedly claimed last week that there is no real terror danger in the United States, with no credible threats in the chatter.
Meanwhile, FBI Director Christopher Wray has admitted a heightened threat in the wake of Hamas’ unjustified attack on Israel on October 7. He warned that the United States must remain alert and observant to prevent attacks by lone wolves.
Wray said the FBI had not received any “clear and present danger” concerns. However, he stressed the significance of information sharing.
Wray is talking out of both sides of his mouth. When he says there is a threat, it’s not “fear-mongering.” But if the right says it, it’s “right-wing” extremism.
According to the transcript of his speech at the annual meeting of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in San Diego, Wray voiced his concern at the persistence of antisemitism and other forms of violent extremism throughout human history.
Wray said there has been a rise in recorded threats in this tense climate; therefore, we must remain on guard in case any recent events have inspired somebody to act violently.
Wray’s warning comes after Khaled Meshaal declared a “Day of Jihad this coming Friday.” The United States, along with the majority of Western countries, has branded Hamas as a terrorist group.
A tweeter on X remarked that they (the FBI) should stop looking for Trump supporters long enough to deal with this.
The director of the FBI issued a broad warning without disclosing any particular domestic concerns related to the war.
He also requested that law enforcement officers maintain their cooperative efforts and open exchange of intelligence.
