With the sad news of the Christchurch New Zealand terrorist attack being carried out by yet another White Supremacist, we had read and seen dozens of news reports with titles like: US terror attacks are increasingly motivated by right-wing views.  We started investigating this article believing the major media’s claim that that 70% of terror attacks in the United States are White Supremacist related:

Dont Be The Next CharlottesvilleOver the last decade, 71% of domestic extremist related killings in the US were linked to right-wing extremists, while Islamic extremists committed 26% of the killings. SOURCE

We compiled a list of notable terror attacks at the bottom of this article using several sources but most notably Wikipedia’s ‘Terrorism in the United States’. Because major Wikipedia topics, like US Terrorism in the United States, are so heavily scrutinized their definitions and lists are unlikely to be inaccurate for very long.

By our count 47.4% of attacks related to Muslim attackers.  That number is especially unnerving when you consider that there are only about 3.25 Million Muslims in the United States which has a total population of 327 Million people.

We thought the numbers might be skewed by severity of attacks so we ground through deaths and injured and found even ‘worse’ statistics.  68.2% of deaths and 81% of injuries from terror attacks came from Muslims.  Those numbers are skewed by the huge victim count in both the Boston Marathon bombings and the Orlando Night Club attack… but they are, none the less, still accurate.

Perspective:

The Muslims you work with and live next to are not your enemy.  In the United States there are more than 3 million Muslims and the list below categorizes about 25 of these into the seriously dangerous category.

PartisanIssues.com tries very hard not to take a political position or to fan the flames of intolerance, by presenting facts and not opinion.  In this Trumpian world of Alternate Facts and lies being presented as facts, we need to expose and consider the real numbers.

However unpleasant these facts may be, they are the facts.  You can look up each of these attacks on the FBI, Wikipedia, and the Global Terrorism Database or you can use Google .

Editorial Note:

Twitter Haters

On a personal note, PartisanIssues.com staff are deeply saddened by the pointless murders in Christchurch New Zealand.  Historically we have (correctly) seen these types of attacks result in increased support for Muslims from both local communities and governments.

While it is clearly anecdotal, the author knows half a dozen people today who are Muslim and would trust each one of them with his bank PIN number or ask them to babysit my kids.  These are all good, hard working, people.  In fact, the author has only EVER personally met one Muslim person who they felt was even capable of serious violence.

PartisanIssues.com stands united with people of all faiths, colours, race, creeds.  We all need to get along on this small blue marble floating through space.
