The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) expressed concern on Friday over what it said was the usurp this year in mass shootings linked to Islamic extremism.

The statement released by the Jewish non-governmental organization came in the wake of a deadly shooting massacre Wednesday in San Bernardino, California, which the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is investigating as a possible act of terrorism.

“The horrific tragedy in San Bernardino appears to confirm our fears over how domestic Islamic extremists increasingly choose to use firearms as the means with which to deliver their violence rather than overambitious conspiracies and plots that are more easily detected and prevented by law enforcement,” said ADL director Jonathan Greenblatt.

“We are shocked and horrified by this unspeakable tragedy and commend the bravery and courage of law enforcement," stated Greenblatt, however underlining that: "At the same time, we are also concerned about the potential increase in anti-Muslim incidents in the wake of this attack, as we saw after Paris. Stigmatizing an entire community will not make our communities any safer.”
