What’s ironic is that the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) authored this study, and yet smears and defames those who call attention to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others. That’s part of the reason why we’re in the fix we’re in.
Arrests and plots linked to domestic Islamist extremism in the U.S. increased by 50 percent last year, new data published by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Monday showed.
According to the data, compiled by the ADL’s Center on Extremism, there were a total of 30 arrests linked to domestic Islamist extremism in 2019, nine of which were for terror plots….
The ADL statement added, “In addition to the nine individuals arrested for plotting attacks, 21 others were arrested for engaging in domestic criminal activity motivated by Islamist extremism. Of those 21 individuals, a large majority faced charges for attempting to provide material support to ISIS. Approximately 70 percent of domestic Islamist extremist criminal activity in 2019 was inspired by ISIS, which has reportedly lost all of its territory in Iraq and Syria.”
