(Mary Dowling) Here’s big news that isn’t news to any of us who’ve been paying attention. NBC News reports that FBI director Christopher Wray on Tuesday warned that Hamas’s actions in the Middle East could inspire other terrorist attacks, including by violent extremists in the US.
“We assess that the actions of Hamas and its allies will serve as an inspiration the likes of which we haven’t seen since ISIS launched its so-called caliphate years ago,” Wray said in testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee at a hearing on threats to America.
Wray testified alongside Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and other U.S. officials. He said multiple foreign terrorist organizations have called for attacks against Americans and the West in just the last few weeks.
