Washington- In the 14 years since Al Qaida carried out attacks on New York and Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in United States, explaining their motives in online manifestoes or social media rants.
But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise. Since September, 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacist, anti government fanatics and other non- Muslim extremist than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremist that are not Muslims, compared with 26 by self proclaimed jihadis, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.
The slaying of nine African-Americans in a South Carolina church last week, with an avowed white supremacist charged, was only the latest in a string of lethal attacks by people espousing racial hatred or hostility to government. The assaults have taken the lives of police officers, members of racial or religious minorities and random civilians.
Non-Muslim extremist have carried out 19 such attacks since 9/11, according to the latest count, compiled by David Sterman, a New America program associate, and overseen by Peter Bergen, a terrorism expert. By comparison seven lethal attacks by Islamic militants have taken place in the same period.
