Robert Gehl reports evidence is emerging of a working relationship between American ANTIFA activists and terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
The connection was uncovered during an investigation by the FBI into the “resistance” movement that is driven by college anarchists and socialists. But it has emerged as the “greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party.”
Edward Klein reveals the connection in his new book, out today, called All Out War: The Plot To Destroy Trump.
A field FBI report, discussed in the book, states: “There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups.”
The FBI began investigating international radical groups such as ANTIFA last summer, along with other anarchist groups. But what piqued their interest was activities in Oakland. Klein’s book goes on:
“Now that the bureau has determined they have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States, it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks.
“Ties between three key leaders of the Oakland group [names redacted] met in Hamburg with a leader of the AQAP [Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula] and the AQIM [Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb],’ the report continued. ‘The leader from AQAP is an Egyptian-born male [name redacted] who is known to be in charge of finances and recruiting for the group.
“There is evidence from informants that he is helping the Oakland group acquire the weapons they are seeking, primarily bomb making equipment and toxic chemicals and gasses.
“One of the men from Oakland traveled to Syria to meet with ISIS; the purpose was for training in tactics, but was thought to be primarily a bonding visit to discuss possible massive disruptive attacks in the U.S.
“While in Hamburg, several of the Oakland-based criminals were photographed throwing Molotov cocktails and wielding iron bars, which have been their weapons of choice, though they are almost certainly on the verge of upping the caliber of their weaponry for use in the U.S.
“Despite having their faces covered by masks, they were positively identified.
“This group and their connections with the radical Islamic groups must be disrupted and destroyed.”
Klein said that under former President Barack Obama’s watch, these anti-American groups were able to coordinate and foment insurrection because they were largely ignored by the FBI.
“The FBI is really playing catchup ball, because the Obama administration refused to give the bureau the resources it needed to effectively infiltrate and surveil the radical groups on college campuses,’ the source continued.
“Any talk of a connection between radical Islam—a phrase the Obama people wouldn’t even use—and American extremists was pretty much laughed off. [Former Attorney General] Loretta Lynch would have blown a gasket if she heard that the FBI was surveilling so-called college political organizations.
“All that has changed under the Trump administration. Everyone’s aware that the resistance movement, with its effort to get rid of Trump by any means necessary, has created fertile soil for ISIS and al Qaeda to establish a beachhead in America.”
If this is the case, as the book claims, that’s a very big problem that we will have to deal with as a country.
