According to a new book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” by author Ed Klein, the FBI has been surveilling left-wing radical groups in the U.S. and their connections to dangerous Islamic terrorist groups overseas. Klein reports, in excerpts printed by the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper, that the Bureau has caught members of California Antifa groups meeting with ISIS and Al Qaeda in Germany to acquire weapons, learn terrorist tactics, and potentially develop plans to launch attacks on civilian institutions inside the United 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,” said a secret FBI report that was delivered to the top officials at the Bureau in July of this year. “This is the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party.”
According to Klein’s book, the FBI sent a task force to Europe last summer to report on the demonstrations planned by various radical leftists, including the German wing of Antifa. While studying the intelligence overseas, American FBI agents came to a startling discovery. While radicals were plotting to disrupt the G20 with their usual protests and riots, American leftists from California were meeting with “individuals and associates of ISIS.”
“While there has been military progress in Iraq against the Islamic State, their influence in Europe and throughout the world is clearly growing,” said the FBI report. “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],” continued the report, as published in Klein’s book. “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.”
To say this news is disturbing would be to significantly understate the matter. This is the most startling evidence yet that Antifa is not simply a bunch of spoiled college kids looking to get their masked faces on the news. They mean business, and they are clearly willing to kill if it serves their communist purposes. Colleges like UC Berkeley and local and state officials can no longer afford the privilege of taking this threat lightly.
