Robert Spencer Warns That ‘Major Jihad Attack’ Will Come To US

In the aftermath of a recent terrorist attack, author Robert Spencer of the Jihad Watch has warned that there will be a “major Jihad attack” taking place in the United States in the future.

Spencer, who is also a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, made the stark comments in an article published on March 25 in PJ Media, in which he questioned if people were “ready” for the attack he says is “coming” to the United States.

The author began by criticizing the “open border” policies enacted by the Biden administration, saying that there are large numbers of people entering the country “without anyone knowing who or what they are.” He emphasized how this could be opening the door to a terrorist attack by radical Jihad groups who can easily come into America and wreak havoc.

Spencer pointed out that questioning if some entering the country are a safety threat “is not allowed,” citing how federal intelligence agencies have recently been instructed not to use the term “jihadist” for fear of engaging in “Islamophobia.”

According to data from the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP), more than 150 illegal immigrants attempting to enter America in 2023 were stopped due to their identification as members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) terrorist watchlist. This was a notable increase from the 99 who were stopped at the border in 2022 and 15 in 2021.

In his article, Spencer wrote that “alert citizens foiled major jihad attacks” following the 9/11 tragedy, and that this is once again required of Americans, who “can take lawful steps to stop jihadis in their tracks.” He urged citizens to “keep our eyes open” for possible terrorist attacks and emphasized that “the jihadis have not won,” nor has “the left.”

Spencer’s warning comes days after Russia saw its most devastating terrorist attack in decades, during which alleged members of ISIS shot more than 130 men, women and children in a concert hall outside of Moscow on Friday March 22.

The attack left hundreds more injured and came six months after another massacre was committed by the Islamic radical group Hamas, who slaughtered more than a thousand Israelis on Oct. 7, 2023.
