International Neo-Nazi Extremist Group Claims Prior Knowledge of Vegas Bomb Plot – #feuerkrieg #terror

Feuerkrieg Division claims it offered help to the Las Vegas neo-Nazi who stockpiled bomb making materials to attack the LGBTQ and Jewish community. An international neo-Nazi extremist group has claimed in chat channels that it had advance knowledge of planned terrorist attacks by an alleged member, a Las Vegas man arrested for plotting bombings against a local synagogue. Tipped by the Counter Extremism Project, a US-based terrorism watchdog, VICE has viewed messages by the Feuerkrieg Division (FKD), a splinter of the violent white supremacist extremist group Atomwaffen Division (AWD). FKD, which is based in Europe, has claimed it not only encouraged attacks by Conor Climo, 23, on Las Vegas’ LGBTQ and Jewish communities, but knew of his plot before his arrest. (…) The news illustrates the increasing internationalization of white supremacist terror groups, which are mimicking some of the tactics of jihadist groups like ISIS, who have in recent years remotely encouraged lone actors in other countries through digital means to carry out attacks against civilians. In a criminal complaint accusing Climo of having the ingredients to make an improvised explosive device, the U.S. Department of Justice names Climo as a member of FKD, having joined sometime in 2017 because the group “was interested in his knowledge of constructing explosive devices” and shared the same extremist views as him.
