As Joe Biden’s administration has left the southern border wide open, Americans are concerned about potential domestic terror threats amid Hamas leaders’ call for widespread protests and demonstrations against Israel on Friday.
According to Reuters, former Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal told the outlet that Muslims across the globe should “head to the streets of the Arab and Islamic world on Friday,” which some are calling a “Day of Jihad” or “Day of Rage.”
Via Fox News, the Israeli National Security Council and Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that Hamas leaders were calling for a “Day of Rage” aimed at violence against Israelis and Jews.
Considering the bloody incursion into Israeli territory at the behest of Hamas terrorists in the last week, several prominent conservative voices have raised the alarm on a potential domestic security breach due to the unsecured southern border.
Trump Senior Advisor Stephen Miller remarked on X, “Pro tip: design your nation’s immigration policy so you don’t have to worry about a global day of jihad.”
President Donald Trump has raised the question of whether Hamas militants could be “pouring” into the United States over the open border, stating, “Are they planning an attack within our Country?”
Trump also alleged that those who are pouring over the border are “the same people that raided Israel” in “Record Numbers.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., commented on the “global day of jihad” on X, noting that if there was not going to be another vote on the Speaker of the House this week, she would rather go home and stock up on ammunition.
“I’ll buy ammo while I’m home,” she remarked.
Unfortunately, Hamas-inspired demonstrations and unrest popped up around the globe on Friday in response to the terror organization’s call to “rage.” Investigative journalist Amy Mek posted a video that was reportedly from Austria, showing alleged Hamas sympathizers gathered in Vienna.
In France, a suspected Islamic radical allegedly stabbed his teacher to death on Friday, reportedly yelling “Allahu akbar,” the Associated Press reported. “Allahu akbar” is Arabic for “God is great.” Per the outlet’s report, two other individuals were also wounded.
Worse still, there has been a reported uptick in antisemitic incidents in London, England. According to the BBC, there have been 89 reports of “anti-Jewish hate” incidents in early October.
Within the borders of the United States, some authorities are taking precautions domestically to ensure the security of American citizens. Per Fox News, the New York Police Department has strengthened its presence in the city, issuing this statement:
“We are aware of the concern that postings circulating online have caused, and we have increased our uniform deployments at large gatherings and cultural sites to ensure public safety out of an abundance of caution.”
To be clear, there is no confirmed or “credible” threat that has been identified, Fox News clarified, but the NYPD will remain prepared, nevertheless.
