Global Islamic Terrorism Advisory

02 January 2009: There are significant threats to American and Israeli interests worldwide which have become more pronounced since the IDF initiated the much belated military action against HAMAS in the Gaza Strip. These threats fall in two distinct categories, but are in fact virtually identical in essence.

Sunni Islamist Threats: All United States and Israeli embassies and consulates around the world are high probability targets. However, these threats also include terrorist action against any and all United States and Israeli citizens, places of worship and other interests anywhere in the world.

Shi’a Islamist Threats: Statements from officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have issued specific terrorist threats (i.e. threats which if carried out amount to specific Acts of War) against both the United States and the State of Israel. These threats target citizens, places of worship and their national interests worldwide.
