IS THE IMMINENT THREAT FROM INSIDE OR OUTSIDE?


26/11/2016





As the terrorist attacks increase within US territory the question where these attacks come from only gets more urgent.
Ever since the tragedy of 9/11 the outlook of the citizens of United States of America has drastically changed. It would not be an exaggeration to call it a form of the “Red Scare” that was prominent during the Cold War era. Just as Americans feared the spread of Communism they now fear a potentially more dangerous foe – Terrorism. But is the threat only from the outside? What about domestic terrorism?According to the research done by New American Foundation, a Washington, D.C. think-tank, radical anti-government groups or white supremacists were responsible for most of the terrorist attacks. This makes white Americans a bigger threat for instilling terror than any outside source. Since 9/11 most acts of terrorism were performed by such individuals says the New American Foundation. Almost twice as many people have died in attacks performed by such individuals than have died in a foreign based terrorist campaign – religious extremists. According to the data taken from New American Foundation, the attacks performed since 9/11 and deemed as acts of terrorism number 26 and astonishingly 19 of such attacks were performed by non-Muslims. Yet these individuals were not captured. Also such attacks are rarely covered in the news media, as though they are being ignored. An example would be the shooting that happened in Wisconsin in 2012: a man affiliated with neo-Nazi groups carried out the shooting in a Sikh temple. Also a couple murdered two policemen leaving behind swastika on the bodies before killing another in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Such attacks occur throughout the country and are not region specific: in 2011, two white supremacists went on a shooting spree in the Pacific Northwest killing four people. At least 48 people have been killed by right-wing extremists in the 14 years since 9/11.By Utku AkgüneşYou can read the rest of the article on our issue of September
