In light of the recent arrests of four men charged with plotting to kill Americans and planning to blow up U.S. military bases, one expert says the rise in homegrown terrorism is evident.

Four men charged with planning to commit jihad against Americans and to join al-Qaeda and the Taliban trained for jihad in Southern California. The Los Angeles Times reports that the four Inland Empire men allegedly trained with semi-automatic weapons at local shooting ranges and practiced at paintball courses.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder of Act! for America, gives OneNewsNow more details about the growth of terrorism in America over recent years.

"We're already seeing a rise of homegrown jihadists in the United States. In the last four years, since President Obama became president, we have arrested on American soil 426 jihadists," she reports. "[Reports are that] 186 of them were Muslim."

The ages of the men in the latest case range from 21 to 34. One of them allegedly converted the others to radical Islam. In turn, the latter two converted the fourth recruit, a U.S. citizen, to violent Islamic teachings.

"One of the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and their operation in the United States is to set up recruitment centers in the inner cities and recruit from the African-American communities and from the Hispanic communities, as well as from the prisons by appealing to them with the Islamic ideology as the ideology that's going to raise their heads, give them pride," Gabriel explains.

A complaint in U.S. District Court in Riverside outlined specifics of the plot to join al-Qaeda and commit jihad against Americans. If convicted, the four men could face up to 15 years in prison.
