Right-wing extremists plotting violent attacks on US Muslims, FBI warns | The Electronic Intifada

Right-wing extremists plotting violent attacks on US Muslims, FBI warns | The Electronic Intifada: The FBI document, originally sent to US law enforcement agencies on 28 May, was published last week by Public Intelligence.


The warning is a reminder of the rising danger posed by right-wing extremists, which, contrary to popular perceptions, far eclipses the threat from Islamic extremists.


The militia movement has traditionally directed its violent activities toward government and police.


But this is changing.


“Militia extremists are expanding their target sets to include
Muslims and Islamic religious institutions in the United States,” the
FBI bulletin warns. “This has resulted in increased violent rhetoric and
plotting and has the potential to lead, over the long term, to
additional harassment of or violence against Muslims by domestic
extremists.”


Among the disturbing examples the FBI cites, the most shocking
occurred in Mississippi last September, where extremists “discussed
kidnapping and beheading a Muslim and posting video of the attack to the
Internet.”.


The group disbanded before acting on their plans.
