ISIS in America: The Homegrown Terrorist and Radicalization
MetadataShow full item record
America’s Homegrown Terrorist: The threat of radicalization and terrorism is one of the most pressing issues that faces the world today. The threat posed by foreign fighters traveling abroad to support the Islamic State (IS) and the continued threat to the United States posed by homegrown Islamic extremists supporting IS are a significant vulnerability to national security. the conflict in Syria and Iraq has attracted Western- based extremists who want to engage in violence. Estimates indicate that over 150 Americans have traveled or attempted to travel to Syria to join ISIS. While this number is small in comparison to the number of European ISIS recruits, recruitment within the U.S. remains a security concern that must be mitigated.
