So, you think most terror attacks in Europe are committed by Muslims?

Are All Terrorists Muslims? It’s Not Even Close
What percentage of terror attacks in the United States and Europe are committed by Muslims? Guess. Nope. Guess again. And again...
“Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” How many times have you heard that one? Sure, we heard Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade say it, but to me, that was simply part of the Fox News plan to make their viewers dumber, as we saw again this past weekend when its terrorism “expert” Steve Emerson was caught fabricating the story that Birmingham, England, is closed to non-Muslims. But more alarmingly, even some reasonable people have uttered this statement.

And that comment is often followed up by the question: Why don’t we see Christian, Buddhist, or Jewish terrorists?

Obviously, there are people who sincerely view themselves as Muslims who have committed horrible acts in the name of Islam. We Muslims can make the case that their actions are not based on any part of the faith but on their own political agenda. But they are Muslims, no denying that.

However, and this will probably shock many, so you might want to take a breath: Overwhelmingly, those who have committed terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe aren’t Muslims. Let’s give that a moment to sink in.

Now, it’s not your fault if you aren’t aware of that fact. You can blame the media. (Yes, Sarah Palin and I actually agree on one thing: The mainstream media sucks.)

So here are some statistics for those interested. Let’s start with Europe. Want to guess what percent of the terrorist attacks there were committed by Muslims over the past five years? Wrong. That is, unless you said less than 2 percent.

As Europol, the European Union’s law-enforcement agency, noted in its report released last year, the vast majority of terror attacks in Europe were perpetrated by separatist groups. For example, in 2013, there were 152 terror attacks in Europe. Only two of them were “religiously motivated,” while 84 were predicated upon ethno-nationalist or separatist beliefs.

Or what about the (dare I mention them) Jewish terrorists? Per the 2013 State Department’s report on terrorism, there were 399 acts of terror committed by Israeli settlers.
We are talking about groups like France’s FLNC, which advocates an independent nation for the island of Corsica. In December 2013, FLNC terrorists carried out simultaneous rocket attacks against police stations in two French cities. And in Greece in late 2013, the left-wing Militant Popular Revolutionary Forces shot and killed two members of the right-wing political party Golden Dawn. While over in Italy, the anarchist group FAI engaged in numerous terror attacks including sending a bomb to a journalist. And the list goes on and on.

Have you heard of these incidents? Probably not. But if Muslims had committed them do you think you our media would’ve covered it? No need to answer, that’s a rhetorical question.

Even after one of the worst terror attacks ever in Europe in 2011, when Anders Breivik slaughtered 77 people in Norway to further his anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, and pro-“Christian Europe” agenda as he stated in his manifesto, how much press did we see in the United States? Yes, it was covered, but not the way we see when a Muslim terrorist is involved. Plus we didn’t see terrorism experts fill the cable news sphere asking how we can stop future Christian terrorists. In fact, even the suggestion that Breivik was a “Christian terrorist” was met with outrage by many, including Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly.

Have you heard about the Buddhist terrorists? Well, extremist Buddhists have killed many Muslim civilians in Burma, and just a few months ago in Sri Lanka, some went on a violent rampage burning down Muslim homes and businesses and slaughtering four Muslims.

Or what about the (dare I mention them) Jewish terrorists? Per the 2013 State Department’s report on terrorism, there were 399 acts of terror committed by Israeli settlers in what are known as “price tag” attacks. These Jewish terrorists attacked Palestinian civilians causing physical injuries to 93 of them and also vandalized scores of mosques and Christian churches.


Back in the United States, the percentage of terror attacks committed by Muslims is almost as miniscule as in Europe. An FBI study looking at terrorism committed on U.S. soil between 1980 and 2005 found that 94 percent of the terror attacks were committed by non-Muslims. In actuality, 42 percent of terror attacks were carried out by Latino-related groups, followed by 24 percent perpetrated by extreme left-wing actors.

And as a 2014 study by University of North Carolina found, since the 9/11 attacks, Muslim-linked terrorism has claimed the lives of 37 Americans. In that same time period, more than 190,000 Americans were murdered (PDF).

In fact in 2013, it was actually more likely Americans would be killed by a toddler than a terrorist. In that year, three Americans were killed in the Boston Marathon bombing. How many people did toddlers kill in 2013? Five, all by accidentally shooting a gun.

But our media simply do not cover the non-Muslim terror attacks with same gusto. Why? It’s a business decision. Stories about scary “others” play better. It’s a story that can simply be framed as good versus evil with Americans being the good guy and the brown Muslim as the bad.

Honestly, when is the last time we heard the media refer to those who attack abortion clinics as “Christian terrorists,” even though these attacks occur at one of every five reproductive health-care facilities? That doesn’t sell as well. After all we are a so-called Christian nation, so that would require us to look at the enemy within our country, and that makes many uncomfortable. Or worse, it makes them change the channel.

That’s the same reason we don’t see many stories about how to reduce the 30 Americans killed each day by gun violence or the three women per day killed by domestic violence. But the media will have on expert after expert discussing how can we stop these scary brown Muslims from killing any more Americans despite the fact you actually have a better chance of being killed by a refrigerator falling on you.

Look, this article is not going to change the media’s business model. But what I hope it does is cause some to realize that not all terrorists are Muslims. In fact, they are actually a very small percent of those that are. Now, I’m not saying to ignore the dangers posed by Islamic radicals. I’m just saying look out for those refrigerators.

Swedish Restaurant Scene of Deadly Shooting | Al Jazeera America

Deadly shooting at Swedish restaurant

Several people were shot inside a restaurant in the city of Goteborg late Wednesday and at least two of them have died, Swedish police said.

Police said in a statement that an automatic weapon is believed to have been used in the shooting. They had no details on any suspects but said several people had been brought in for questioning.

The shooting happened in the Biskopsgarden suburb of Goteborg, Sweden's second largest city. The neighborhood has a history of gang violence, said police spokeswoman Ulla Brehm.

She said it was too early to speculate on the motive but said there were indications that the shooting was gang-related.

"There is absolutely nothing that indicates terrorism," :rolleyes: Brehm said.

"We have had a targeted police operation in this area because we have gang crime here. There has been shootings in the past," Brehm said.

Brehm said at least two people were killed at the scene and several others taken to a hospital.

Police said the shooting happened inside a restaurant called Var Krog och Bar, which means "our tavern and bar" in Swedish. According to its website, the restaurant opened in 1995 and also has a sports bar and a night club that's open on Fridays and Saturdays.

An eyewitness told the tabloid Aftonbladet that two people entered the pub with weapons that looked like Kalashnikovs and started shooting.

Another witness described how fast the shootings occurred.

"I didn't have time to think what was happening. Then I saw that my friend was bleeding. I tried to stop the flow of blood as well as I could with my hands," a man who gave his name as "Rocky" told public broadcaster SVT.

On Jan. 30 a man was wounded in a shooting on the square outside the restaurant. It wasn't immediately clear whether the shootings were linked.

Gun violence is not uncommon in Sweden's major cities, though shootings in public places with multiple victims are rare.

"The problems are the same here in Sweden as internationally," Brehm said.

So Nazism equals Christianity in your world?

NO! But terrorism does not equal Islam either in my world. That's the point I'm trying to make. The article omitted the word terrorism from its content and we know why. It's the topic of the thread.

I'm not attacking Christianity but the sense of insecurity and guilt always manifests itself among your club.
Notice how every one critical of my post missed the "White" part in my comment.
You could have accused me of saying "terrorist equal White" which is not true either...
I already sense the religious disease infecting this tread turning it into Islam vs.Christianity contest.
What a Sorry Crowd ...

Yes, we're a group of idiots while you're the know-it all God who thinks RT is the source of truth.

And could you please tell me where's the "sense of insecurity and guilt" in my post? Insecurity and guilt? Really? From who?

As for the article, the difference between Neo-Nazi Whites and Terrorist Muslims is that not all Whites are Nazis while Muslim Terrorists are just following the teachings of the Koran.

Muslim Terrorists have their own states, while Neo-Nazi Whites commit individual attacks based on an ideology created by a psychopath 60 years ago.

If you add-up all the attacks perpetuated by non-Muslims in a year, they wouldn't come close to the ones done by Muslims in a week.

Muslims may not be the only terrorists in the world, but they're by far the best at it.

The best you can do is search the internet all day and cherry pick news from here and there to make your point, while it takes no effort whatsoever to find articles of Muslims spreading terror and chaos all around the globe on a daily basis.

You seem to be above Neocon propaganda. Sad to see you so enthralled by it.

Could you please argue with me point by point instead of using guilt by-association.

Thanks.

Your post is loaded with half truths, absolute statements, confirmation bias, observational selection and most importantly and a trait thats shared with almost all other people who are trigger happy to jump at Islam and Muslims in this forum: a straw man the size of a bus.

I will go into more detail when I have bit more time on my hands.
