White Americans Biggest Threat to US

White Americans are the biggest terror threat in the United States, having killed more people in attacks than Muslims or any other group in the last 14 years, according to a new study.
The research, conducted by the New America Foundation, examined the 26 attacks on US soil defined as acts of terror since 9/11, and found that 19 of those attacks were committed by non-Muslims, RT reported.
Since the infamous September 11 attack, 48 people have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim. The non-Muslim groups included right-wing, racist and anti-government organizations.
However, the study found that radical Islamic-affiliated militants were indicted more frequently than non-Muslim extremists and served longer sentences.
Last week’s Charleston shooting, which left nine people dead at a landmark black church, was included in the study. The shooter, 21-year-old Dylann Roof, supported white supremacist ideology.
Also included in the count was a 2012 Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin, which left six people dead. The shooting was carried out by Michael Page, who was involved in neo-Nazi and white supremacist circles, and had founded a white supremacist band.
A 2011 multi-state killing spree was also listed, during which David Pedersen and Holly Grigsby killed four people. The indictment alleged the two were members of a criminal enterprise whose purposes included “promoting and advancing a white supremacist movement to ‘purify’ and ‘preserve’ the white race.”
