The New York Times reports that white anti-government terrorists are more dangerous that Muslims:
 Homegrown Radicals More Deadly Than Jihadis in U.S.

By Scott Shane, June 24, 2015

WASHINGTON — In the 14 years since Al Qaeda carried out attacks on New York and the Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the 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 Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.[ More]

In order to reach this result, this "Research Center" had to overlook a number of large elephants in the room. Here's one—by their showing, half of all these murders are committed by nine-tenths of one percent of America's population. The lesson there: no more Muslim immigrants.

Of course, the study does not include the reign of terror black and immigrant criminals have inflicted not only upon their own communities but also whites during that same time.

Maybe another "count," this one including those killed by blacks and immigrants, is in order.
