Suicide Attack Planned On Church To Support ISIS

Apr 11, 2024

An 18-year-old man from Idaho was arrested Saturday after planning a suicide attack on churches in Coeur d’Alene.

Alexander Scott Mercurio was raised Christian but rejected his faith, deciding to become Muslim and support the terrorist organization the Islamic State (ISIS), according to reports from the Christian Post. A complaint released by the U.S. Department of Justice details how Mercurio planned to use explosives, knives, and firearms to attack local churches on the first Sunday in April 2024.

“His attack plan involved using flame-covered weapons, explosives, knives, a machete, a pipe, and ultimately firearms. His plan grew more precise as he eventually identified the specific church and date on which he planned to attack,” the complaint reads. “Mercurio planned to attack the church on April 7, 2024, a date intentionally selected by him so his attack would occur before the end of Ramadan. As the date drew near, MERCURIO devised a plan to incapacitate his father, restrain him using handcuffs, and steal his firearms to use for maximum casualties in his attack.” (LEARN MORE: Female Mass Shooters & The Rise In Transgenderism)

Attack Stopped By Feds

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was able to stop the attack, but fear this will be part of a growing trend in self-radicalization. “”This case should be an eye-opener to the dangers of self-radicalization, which is a real threat to our communities,” Special Agent in Charge Shohini Sinha of the Salt Lake City FBI said following Mercurio’s arrest. “Protecting the American people from terrorism remains the FBI’s number one priority, and we continue to encourage the public to report anything suspicious to the FBI or your local law enforcement.” (LEARN MORE: Conservatives Warn Of Terror Vulnerability from U.S. Open Border)
