_Militias pose rising threat to United States_ (Reuter Information Service)

MIAMI (Apr 11, 1996 6:24 p.m. EDT) - The threat of terrorism from anti- government "Patriot" groups in the United States has increased sharply in the past year and paramilitary units are preparing for war, the Southern Poverty Law Center said in a report released on Thursday.

The 72-page report, prepared by the center's Militia Task Force, identified more than 800 Patriot organizations including 441 so-called militia groups and said they have a new strategy for underground terror cells that will wage war with the support of a broad, extreme-right coalition.

It said the movement, which includes white supremacist groups and armed state militias, poses a "clear and present danger" and called on the U.S. Justice Department to create a joint federal-state task force on domestic terrorism.

"People like the Oklahoma City bombers are not alone. They will fail to achieve their goal of overthrowing the federal government but in the process they will do much harm," said the center, a non-profit organization that monitors hate groups, promotes tolerance and defends civil rights in courts.

The report, "False Patriots: The Threat of Antigovernment Extremists," resulted from two years of investigation and intelligence gathering, task force director Joe Roy said.

The center said Patriot groups are well-financed, have access to explosives, biochemical agents and military-style assault rifles and follow a strategy of leaderless resistance by forming secret cells and training for terrorism.

No one knows how big the movement is but its members likely number in the millions, Roy said. The Militia Task Force identified armed militias in all 50 states.

"The vast majority of that movement is not that much of a threat. It's the 10 percent underbelly that poses the threat," Roy said. "People who will go out and do things like derail trains, blow up buildings."

Many involved in the Patriot movement believe Americans are being systematically oppressed by an "illegal, totalitarian government intent on disarming its citizens and creating a 'One World' government," the center said.

The report said many adherents -- like the Montana Freemen currently involved in a lengthy standoff with federal authorities -- subscribe to "bizarre Christian Identity beliefs" in which whites are "true Israelites," blacks are "subhuman" and Jews are "children of Satan."

The report profiled more than 100 prominent members of the Patriot movement including William Pierce, head of the National Alliance, said to be the fastest growing neo-Nazi organisation in the country.

The Patriot press is filled with "wild tales of government conspiracies" such as " ... the government is using black helicopters to spy on its citizens ... and implanting electronic monitoring devices in newborn babies," it said.

Patriot groups have no unified leadership but are linked "like no rebel force has ever been" by the Internet and by fax, sharing tips on avoiding tax laws and fighting government regulations. They arm themselves at gun shows and learn how to build bombs through mail-order manuals, the report said.

It noted that seven months after the Oklahoma City federal building bombing, which killed 168 people, anti-government extremists were caught making a bomb intended to blow up the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, headquarters of the Militia Task Force.
