Written by Jerome P. Bjelopera, Analyst in Organized Crime and Terrorism and Mark A. Randol, Specialist in Domestic Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism

An apparent spike in Islamist terrorist plots by American citizens and residents is examined in another new report from the Congressional Research
Service.

“This report describes homegrown violent jihadists and the plots and attacks that have occurred since 9/11.” The report uses the term “jihadist” to refer to “radicalized individuals using Islam as an ideological and/or religious justification for their belief in the establishment of a global caliphate.”

The 128-page report describes the radicalization process and the responses of government and law enforcement agencies. An appendix provides details about each post-9/11 incident of “homegrown jihadist terrorist plots and attacks” while a second appendix describes engagement and partnership activities by federal agencies with Muslim-American communities.
