WHITE AMERICANS BIGGER TERROR THREAT THAN ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS – STUDY
White Americans are the biggest terror threat in the United States, having killed more people in attacks than Muslims or any other group in the last 14 years, according to a new study.
The research, conducted by the New America Foundation, examined the 26 attacks on US soil defined as acts of terror since 9/11, and found that 19 of those attacks were committed by non-Muslims.
Since the September 11 atrocity, 48 people have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, compared to 26 killed by people who claimed to be jihadists. The non-Muslim groups included right-wing, racist, and anti-government organizations.
However, the study found that radical Islamists were indicted more frequently than non-Muslim extremists and served longer sentences.
