Terrorism poses an existential threat the United States of America, and the free world as we know it. On September 11th, 2001 more than 3,000 innocent civilians were killed in the largest terrorist attack in world history. Since then, the face of war has been dramatically transformed. Whereas the 20th century was defined by threats from hostile state actors such as Nazi Germany and the Communist Soviet Union, the 21st Century has been defined by an ideological enemy.
Terrorism derived from radical Islamic ideology has exploded across the Western world, and unfortunately, is now better equipped to carry out deadly terrorist attacks against the West than ever before. From the terrorist state of Iran pursuing nuclear destruction capabilities, to the Islamic State, to Hezbollah, to Hamas, to terrorist front groups such as the Council of American Islamic Relations, Islamic terrorism remains a worldwide pandemic.
ACT for America remains unwaveringly committed to mobilizing and deploying its massive grassroots machine to ensure the passage of critical legislation to protect this nation against terrorist threats. Our organization is also committed to educating politicians, law enforcement officers, and average American citizens about the roots of terrorism, and what steps they can take to help defend against it.
