If you think Islamist terrorists are training to carry out acts of Jihad exclusively in the deserts of countries like Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria, think again.
An alarming discovery made by the FBI of a homegrown terror compound in rural Alabama proves that America is under constant threat, both from foreign and domestic enemies.
Even scarier is the fact that the compound, which otherwise appeared to be a dump, has been linked to the New Mexico terror camp discovered last year.
Information from FBI search warrants, according to WBMA, revealed that the compound belonged to a small group of potential terrorists who were using it as a “makeshift military-style obstacle course.”
The property is located less than five miles outside of Tuskegee, Alabama, proving that no part of America is immune from the clear and present threat of Islamic extremism.
Authorities say the owner of the Alabama compound is Siraj Wahhaj — the same person in charge of the camp in New Mexico where starving children were being trained to carry out acts of violence such as school shootings.
In March, federal prosecutors charged him and four other suspects with conspiracy to carry out attacks on U.S. targets.
FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity recently told lawmakers on Capitol Hill, “The threat of domestic terrorism exists in every region of the United States and affects all walks of life.” And he’s right on the money.
Former FBI special agent Tim Furhman doubled down, telling WBMA, “Just because you’re in a small town or a small state does not mean you might not potentially have individuals engaged in the types of activities that would call into question threats to national security.”
Thankfully, the fine men and women of the FBI shut this operation down before any attacks were carried out by members of the compound, but sadly, authorities found the remains of what they think is one of Wahhaj’s children at the New Mexico compound.

These savages literally have no regard for human life — including the lives of their own children.
So, what’s the best way to stop these domestic terror threats from affecting our lives?
Experts still advise citizens to rely on the “see something, say something” method. Sure, a triggered liberal might call you an “Islamophobe” for reporting suspicious activity, but if you ask this concerned citizen, it’s worth the risk.
Bottom line, extremism of any form needs to come to a grinding halt. Lawmakers need to set aside politics — for once — and take a stand for the safety of American citizens.
That includes reforming and enforcing immigration laws, as well as providing the resources necessary for federal, state and local law enforcement to relentlessly track down and end these terror camps on U.S. soil.
If law enforcement is able to keep being proactive in shutting these extremist groups down, hopefully they can at least prevent the next tragic terror attack from originating on American soil.
