The FBI has found that American college students in Antifa have ties with radical Islamic terrorists from both ISIS and Al Qaeda.
In his book released on October 30, All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Donald Trump, former New York Times Magazine Editor-in-Chief Edward Klein includes the FBI’s ‘Informational Report,’ which documents the connection between the leftist students and Islamic extremists.
The FBI sent a task force to investigate the plans of the German Antifastische Aktion (Antifa) to stage mass protests against President Trump and other world leaders at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany this past summer. Around 100,000 took part in the anti-capitalist demonstrations, where thousands of masked protesters destroyed property and attacked police.
The task force learned from intel from “local authorities, Interpol, and other assets” that “U.S.-backed anarchist/radical groups traveled to Germany and took part in the violence.” Several of the Americans were later identified throwing Molotov cocktails and carrying iron bars on the streets of Hamburg during the summit.
Most troubling, however, is that the FBI found “evidence of meetings between these individuals and associates of ISIS.” The FBI took a special interest in leaders of radical groups based in Oakland, California, which is near the University of California-Berkeley, a campus that has seen a growth in Antifa mob violence in 2017.
“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 states. “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.”
AQAP is known for taking responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, France in early 2015.
The FBI learned from informants that the AQAP leader is helping the Oakland anarchists gain access to bombs and chemical weapons. One of the men from Oakland even traveled to Syria to meet with ISIS leaders.
“The purpose was for training in tactics,” the report states, “but was thought to be primarily a bonding visit to discuss possible massive disruptive attacks in the U.S.”
An FBI source with access to former FBI Director James Comey’s files told The Daily Mail that Comey had discovered that multiple American college-age anarchists had communicated with ISIS on certain websites, and then downloaded instructions on bomb-making from those same sites. The source went on to say that the Bureau is actively surveilling radical “so-called college political organizations,” despite having to “play catchup ball” because the Obama administration refused to investigate potential ties between radical Islam and U.S.-based left-wing anarchists.
“Now that the bureau has determined [Islamic extremists] have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States,” the report warns, “it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks.”
Collusion between Islamic extremists like Al Qaeda and so-called anti-fascist groups in the “resistance” against the Trump administration should come as no surprise. Anti-fascist groups in Germany have long used their misleading title as an excuse to use fascist tactics against supporters of capitalism. This is the perfect example of collusion with ‘the enemy of my enemy.’ Antifa and Al Qaeda won’t find much common ground on issues of religion, but they both share a deep-seated hatred of Western Civilization.
“This is the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party,” the FBI report warns.
