Shock Report: FBI Arresting Far More Americans Targeting Muslims, Than Muslims Targeting Americans

As President Trump and supporters continue the push to levy an arbitrary travel ban from a smattering of predominantly Muslim countries, a debate rages in the United States about the validity — and effectiveness — of preventing terrorism by strangling immigration.

Now, simple data can put that debate to rest.

“Since January 2015, the FBI has also arrested more anti-immigrant American citizens plotting violent attacks on Muslims within the U.S. than it has refugees, or former refugees, from any banned country,” writes Nora Ellingsen for Lawfare.

Ellingsen would know, too, after having worked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Counterterrorism Division for five years, she left for Harvard Law School — but has tracked statistics closely for Lawfare since. And Ellingsen remains cagey to unreported information — she knows what is likely taking place behind the scenes, even when it either isn’t or hasn’t been disclosed to the public.

In a recent article titled, “It’s Not Foreigners Who are Plotting Here: What the Data Really Show,” Ellingsen explains,

“The Program on Extremism at George Washington University has routinely published statistics indicating that the ‘vast majority’ of individuals charged in the U.S. with offenses related to ISIL are U.S. citizens. When considering all terrorism offenses, that claim holds up—80 of the 97 suspects arrested in the past two years, or more than 82 percent, are American citizens.

“Most of those, notably, are not naturalized citizens. Of the U.S. citizens, only six were naturalized. In other words, more than 76 percent of individuals arrested by the FBI over the past two years for terrorism-related offenses were U.S. citizens as a result of having been born in the United States.”

Americans present a far greater threat to Americans than immigrants from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, or Somalia — the named countries in Trump’s disputatious ban.

But even naturalized U.S. citizens haven’t committed or plotted to commit acts of terrorism on American soil. According to the aforementioned statistics, two of six naturalized citizens emigrated from Bosnia, which didn’t make the list — nor did Israel, staunch U.S. government policy driver, and original home of the third naturalized citizen, who had been convicted on charges of terrorism previously.

“Nihad Rosic and Mediha Medy Salkicevic,” Ellingsen continues, “emigrated to the U.S. from Bosnia, a country not on Trump’s list. While in the United States, the government alleges that Rosic and Salkicevic raised and sent money to individuals fighting with ISIL in Syria and Iraq. Both men contributed money from their personal savings, while other members of the conspiracy sent supplies including tactical gear. At one point, Rosic attempted to leave the country to join ISIL as a fighter overseas. Neither subject plotted an attack in the United States.

“Another naturalized citizen, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh came to the United States from Israel—a country that’s really not on Trump’s list. Odeh’s case is unique; she was charged with immigration violations for failing to disclose a previous terrorism conviction in Israel. Now 68 years old, Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem, which were carried out on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP.) In the past two years, Odeh is the only convicted terrorist to slip through the cracks and immigrate to the United States. However, the indictment makes no charges that she was engaged in any sort of terrorist activity while living in the Chicago area.”

Here’s where the statistics get really interesting. While the remaining three naturalized citizens did, indeed, emigrate from nations Trump takes issue with, but not for anything pertaining to his ostensible terrorism concerns.

Two men — one from Iraq, the other, Syria — “were not charged with material support to terrorism, but with making false statements to law enforcement,” and “nothing in the public court documents suggests that either subject engaged in attack plotting in the United States.”

Exactly one naturalized citizen from the travel blacklist engaged in activity related to terrorism, as Ellingsen explains,

“Of the six naturalized citizens on our list, there is exactly one from a newly banned country who was charged with material support to terrorism. Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud emigrated to the U.S. from Somalia. In April 2014, Mohamud traveled from Ohio to Istanbul and onward to Syria, where he received weapons and explosives training. In June 2014, Mohamud returned to the U.S., where he told an acquaintance that he wanted to attack a military facility or a prison, killing U.S. military members.”

So, if perpetually-paranoid Americans aren’t threatened by immigrants from the apparently Sinful Seven countries, who should they fear?

Techdirt turned to an article from Slate, which explains the ‘real terrorists’ truly are closer to home than nervous, law-abiding Americans might think.

“Our politicians say they’ll stop these killers. They talk about building walls and vetting refugees. If we were serious, we would do it. We would seal our borders against North Carolina,” Slate’s William Saletan implored.

“North Carolina? It sounds absurd. When we think about immigration and terrorism, we think of Syria. But that’s not where our casualties are coming from. On Friday, a gunman killed three people and wounded nine more at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. The suspect is white American Robert Lewis Dear. When police apprehended Dear, he uttered one telltale phrase: ‘no more baby parts.’ People who have known or met Dear say he wasn’t a regular churchgoer. But they also report that he believed devoutly in the Bible and that he claimed to have read it ‘cover to cover.’ In an online forum, Dear apparently spoke of Jesus and the ‘end times.’ He painted or posted crosses on at least three of his homes.

“Dear moved to Colorado last year from North Carolina, where he had been living. For two decades, the Tar Heel State has been a hotbed of religious extremism, fueled by clerics who preach holy war. The result is a stream of interstate terrorism.”

Saletan, of course, speaks tongue-in-cheek, yet keenly encapsulates — through a list of domestic terror attacks carried out by North and South Carolinians — how immigration restrictions of any variety serve only to placate xenophobes.

After all, Saudi Arabia didn’t make the list; Israel didn’t make the list; Afghanistan didn’t make the list.

Terrorism doesn’t practice one religion, or have a single nationality. It doesn’t have a specific appearance, gender, motivation, cause, or mindset.

You can’t fight terrorism by ignoring facts — and the fact is, we have our own terrorists. No matter how constrictive the restrictions on our borders get — even if Trump shut down immigration, entirely — the United States creates terrorists at home and abroad at an alarming rate.

A closed border won’t change that. Indeed, the only way to lessen the chances a terrorist will attack on U.S. soil is for the U.S. to rein in belligerent, imperialist foreign policy, bring the military home, and use its bloated budget to begin patching the physical and emotional holes in this country.

Banning legal immigrants only deepens those wounds.

          Then your time would be better spent worry about the THOUSANDS of things that are more likely to kill you than Abdul al Kaboom. For example, a fallen vending machine or an angry dog. I’ve heard those newfangled car thingies kill a lot of folk. Boycotting cars and walking everywhere you go would make a LOT more sense than stigmatizing and being an asshole to a billion fucking people because some of them might be “making bombs in the garage out back.” I haven’t researched this to be sure, but I’d be willing to bet that you’re a LOT more likely to be senselessly murdered by a white, Christian nut than a brown Muslim one. You’re definitely more likely to be shot by a toddler than blown up by a foreign terrorist. See for yourself: http://www.snopes.com/toddlers-killed-americans-terrorists/

            Funny, that’s what Protestant Americans thought about Catholic immigrants when they began arriving in numbers back in the 19th century. There was supposed to be a “papist plot” to turn America Catholic and destroy Protestants. But the only people destroyed were Catholics during several anti-Catholic rampages. Sound familiar?

            Sorry, but I don’t drink beer. Never have liked it. And you might try reading a little religious history. Catholics murdered non-Catholics, and Protestants killed Catholics in the religious wars that accompanied the Reformation. I have visited places in England where where Catholics were burned at the stake and others where they were hanged, drawn, and quartered. You might want to look up the 1844 anti-Catholic riots in Philadephia. Religious hatred is a terrible thing. And there’s far too much of it right now in this country. Not to mention the crazy comments here.

          • k9mace

            With all due respect. I am a white Christian, call me a nut if you like however Islam by its very own literature is not compatible with ANYONE ELSE. It’s basic tenets such as treatment of women etc is at its very core not compatible with the US Constitution, Bill of Rights or our Civil rights laws. Per the Quran the are instructed to lie to the Infidel (ie, non muslims, Christians and Jews )to further their world caliphate. Islam in and of itself IS NOT a religion but a political ideology that encompasses EVERY ASPECT OF ONE’S LIFE. Christianity does not advocate coercion by force or conversion by force either. So basically you need to do some more thorough research into the facts from someplace other than Snopes. Also not only am I white (which neither I nor any one else had a choice what color or gender we were born) but a Christian and a Retired Cop.

Okay so 1 billion you say, it is more like 2 billion Muslims world wide, but lets stick with conservative numbers here, the latest polling suggests that some 25% of those “peaceful” people agree with ISIS and Sharia Law 25% of 2 billion is what? more people than the entire Population of the US that hate us for just being us and that includes you to…Regardless if you love them or not or call them peaceful those 25% would still subjugate you or cut ur fcking head off after they rape you….Good luck with your research.

          Befriending Non-Believers

          Are Muslims allowed to be friends with Christians, Jews or other
          non-Muslims?

          Unbelievers are described by Muhammad (in the Quran) as “the vilest of animals” and
          “losers.” Christians and Jews are hated by Allah to the extent that they
          are destined for eternal doom as a result of their beliefs. It would make
          no sense for Muhammad to then recommend that they be taken as friends by
          Muslims. In fact, the Quran plainly orders believers not to take
          unbelievers as friends.

          Quran
          Quran (5:51)
          – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends;
          they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend,
          then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

          Quran (5:80)
          – “You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is
          that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased
          with them and in chastisement shall they abide.” Those Muslims who
          befriend unbelievers will abide in hell.

          Quran (3:28)
          – “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than
          believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except
          by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them…”
          This last part means that the Muslim is allowed to feign friendship if it is of
          benefit. Renowned scholar Ibn Kathir states that “believers are allowed to
          show friendship outwardly, but never inwardly.”

          Quran (3:118)
          – “O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than
          your own people, they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love
          what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their
          mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made
          the communications clear to you, if you will understand.” This verse
          not only warns Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends, but suggests that
          that the rest of the world is out to get them and can’t be trusted.

          Quran (9:23)
          – “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if
          they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for
          friends, such are wrong-doers” Even family members are not to be taken
          as friends if they do not accept Islam. (There are harsher
          interpretations of this verse. The same (ninth) sura advocates “slaying
          the unbeliever wherever ye find them”).

          Quran (53:29)
          – “Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but
          the life of this world.”

          Quran (3:85)
          – “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted
          from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”

          Quran (3:10)
          – “(As for) those who disbelieve, surely neither their wealth nor their
          children shall avail them in the least against Allah, and these it is who are
          the fuel of the fire.” Those who do not believe in Muhammad are but
          fuel for the fire of Hell (also 66:6, 2:24. 21:98).

          Quran (7:44)
          – “The Companions of the Garden will call out to the Companions of the Fire:
          “We have indeed found the promises of our Lord to us true: Have you also found
          Your Lord’s promises true?” They shall say, “Yes”; but a crier shall proclaim
          between them: “The curse of Allah is on the wrong-doers” Muslims in
          heaven will amuse themselves by looking down on non-Muslims in Hell and mocking
          them while they are being tortured (see
          22:19-22).

          Quran (1:5-7)
          – “Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not
          the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray”
          This is a prayer that Muslims are to repeat each day. “Those who
          earn Thine anger” refers to Jews; “those who go astray” refers
          to Christians (see

          Sahih Bukhari (12:749) and Sahih Muslim 34:6448)).

    The danger is creeping. Moving slowly a little bit at a time.The real fight is not against the Muslims but the creeping Sharia. Sharia calls for the Muslims expansion and conversion or killing infidels. The Threat is not just terrorism but the whole American way of life.

      “Michigan already have ‘no go zone’.” You’re giving us a headache. What exactly ARE you trying to say here? Michigan is a single entity. So, it would be “Michigan already has” and you say “have ‘no go zone’.” Is there one? Or more than one? “Michigan already has a ‘no go zone’.”? Is that what you are trying to say? Let us know, please.

      The next sentence “What kind of live do you want?” You mean “life”. That would be “the existence of an individual human being or animal.”

    – “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than
    believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except
    by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them…”
    This last part means that the Muslim is allowed to feign friendship if it is of
    benefit. Renowned scholar Ibn Kathir states that “believers are allowed to
    show friendship outwardly, but never inwardly.”

    Quran (3:118)
    – “O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than
    your own people, they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love
    what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their
    mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made
    the communications clear to you, if you will understand.” This verse
    not only warns Muslims not to take non-Muslims as friends, but suggests that
    that the rest of the world is out to get them and can’t be trusted.

    Quran (9:23)
    – “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if
    they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for
    friends, such are wrong-doers” Even family members are not to be taken
    as friends if they do not accept Islam. (There are harsher
    interpretations of this verse. The same (ninth) sura advocates “slaying
    the unbeliever wherever ye find them”).

    Quran (53:29)
    – “Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but
    the life of this world.”

    Quran (3:85)
    – “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted
    from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”

    Quran (3:10)
    – “(As for) those who disbelieve, surely neither their wealth nor their
    children shall avail them in the least against Allah, and these it is who are
    the fuel of the fire.” Those who do not believe in Muhammad are but
    fuel for the fire of Hell (also 66:6, 2:24. 21:98).

    Quran (7:44)
    – “The Companions of the Garden will call out to the Companions of the Fire:
    “We have indeed found the promises of our Lord to us true: Have you also found
    Your Lord’s promises true?” They shall say, “Yes”; but a crier shall proclaim
    between them: “The curse of Allah is on the wrong-doers” Muslims in
    heaven will amuse themselves by looking down on non-Muslims in Hell and mocking
    them while they are being tortured (see
    22:19-22).

    Quran (1:5-7)
    – “Show us the straight path, The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not
    the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray”
    This is a prayer that Muslims are to repeat each day. “Those who
    earn Thine anger” refers to Jews; “those who go astray” refers
    to Christians (see

    Sahih Bukhari (12:749) and Sahih Muslim 34:6448)).

      thank you for your service

    • Jim Moyers

      Funny, I’ve had quite a few Muslim associates. Maybe they were just putting me on until the time came to kill me?

    • Anonymous

      We have a neighbor who is Muslim. Never been anything but nice to us. Very helpful when we have needed it.

      • Guest

        Like i said if they are a practicing islam they are commanded to kill anyone NOT a mooslim , I dont care what you say as i go by there teachings

  • bobbi brownose

    this trash article does nothing but prove that not only was trump’s terrorist countries ban not enough, but also that a foreign muslim ban wouldnt be enough, and finally… that the only thing left to do is to deport all muslims. freethoughtproject pro-islam fucking garbage outlet.

      So…what would you do with the ones who were born here? Where do you deport them to? How about the ones who have served in our military with honor and distinction? How about the ones who are buried in Arlington having given their life for our country? Would you advocate digging their graves up and throwing them out of the country too?

    There’s nothing ‘shocking’ at all about this ‘report.’

    The FBI has been systemically-blinded by Barry/Hillary (for 8 years) to the truth of Islamic jihad ideology in their demonic quest to bring the entirety of Western civilization under subjugation to Sharia law (the will of Allah, the crescent moon god of Islam).

    Once the blinders have been removed, by the Trump administration, and they’re no longer afflicted with the ‘Ostrich Complex,’ they’ll know infinitely more about who these people are, why they do what they do, how to identify them, how they think, how they operate and where they may be found, both outside as well as inside the halls of government.

    Six months from now, these statistics will look radically different, as government officials become increasingly aware we are, really, at war.

    At its core, Islamists are engaged in ‘Civilizational Jihad’; a fundamental and historical clash between civilizations. One will win. The other will lose.

    It’s, really, as simple as that.

      Islamists migrate to a country and then just procreate. Eventually, they outnumber the host country’s citizens and take over the government. They’re well on their way in many European countries. So far, the U.S. is too liberal to heed the warning.

      • Pastor C

        Clearly, you understand this has been their strategic approach for conquest since the days of Mohammed.

        • Jim Moyers

          It was also the Catholic strategy back in the 19th century when immigrants from Catholic countries were pouring into the US. But I guess something went wrong with that dark scheme by the AntiChrist, 666, in Rome?

  • The claim is that there is a “long steady stream of interstate terrorism,” but the article only provides two instances of murder, not terrorism: CO & NC. Sure, there is no doubt that there are people who claim all sorts of things to justify their actions. However, no one in Christianity can justify their actions through the Bible in committing such crimes. The Koran, however, is a different story. While the Bible did give commands early on to a specific people at a specific time to wage war, the Koran works in reverse, giving such commands last and understood to be perpetual. While there are many Muslims in name only, just as there are Christians, it is not those people I’m as concerned about as those who actually believe the Koran. In either case, the answer to both wicked “Christians” and wicked “Muslims” is the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Talked about biased reporting. I guess this silly little author hasn’t been keeping up with the problems in Europe.

      It was the R.A.F. that just turned the last stronghold of I.S.I.S. in Mosel into smoking rubble.

  • billdeserthills

    Tell me again how people sympathizing with muslim scum haven’t killed more americans, than americans who are fed up with muslim scum have…

  • MichaelB

    Nobody’s banning legal immigrants, as the last sentence suggests. The media needs to stop referring to immigrants as a whole and recognize there’s a difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants. Updating immigration law is a separate subject from stopping illegal immigration. The majority of Americans are against illegal immigration, not immigrants as a whole.

    • Anonymous

      Legal immigrants would be people with green cards, right? There were people with green cards who WERE turned away.

      • MichaelB

        You’re right, of course, and everybody knows it was because of the sloppy rollout. The new EO will allow for that.

      • MichaelB

        Of course, you’re right, but everybody knows it was an oversight and it was a sloppy rollout. The new EO should be better written.

        • Anonymous

          We sure hope that it will be better written.

    The data underlying her assertions are demonstrably incomplete. What a joke.
