17 Years After 9/11: Threat of Radical Islamic Terrorist Attack Greater Than Ever

It was 17 years ago on a beautiful Tuesday morning like today that terrorists struck America in New York and Washington.

At the Pentagon and the site of the World Trade Center, victims gathered to remember the lost. President Trump is attending a memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania for the victims of Flight 93.

The 9/11 attack kicked off a war that we're still fighting today, and experts say the global threat posed by radical Islam is greater than ever.

Since that fateful September morning, Islamic jihadists have launched 33,767 deadly terror attacks.

Cliff May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, tells CBN News, "The movements and ideologies that drove and justified that attack and the thousands of other attacks you name, that still remains very dynamic, very vibrant—a major force in the world."

And these terror groups have hit targets nearly everywhere around the world since 9/11. From Iraq and Afghanistan to Finland and California, experts say Islamic fighters have shown that they are far from exhausted, discouraged or underfunded.
