YEAH, BUT THEY'RE WHITE:

Neo-Nazi lone-wolf attacks in Europe are more deadly than Isis-inspired terrorist plots (Paul Wright, March 1, 2016, IB Times)

"Lone wolf" attacks by the far-right in Europe have been more lethal than those inspired by the Islamic State (Isis), a comprehensive study into extremism has found. While Islamist attacks have been the focus of counter-terrorism investigations, researchers say plots by individuals and small groups of right-wing extremists - like Norway's Anders Breivik - are more deadly and almost as numerous.

Britain leads every other European country for the number of attacks or plots over the past 15 years that have been planned by individuals or self-starting cells, according to the report by four research institutes. Almost half of the right-wing attacks - which range from mosque arson to the bombing of Islamic centres - were said to be partly motivated by the murder of soldier Lee Rigby.

This includes a revenge attack in January 2015 by neo-Nazi Zack Davies, who was jailed for attempted murder when he attempted to behead a Tesco shopper in Mold, Flintshire. Another anti-Islam attack, in 2013, saw white supremacist Pavlo Lapshyn stab a Muslim grandfather to death in the West Midlands and plant explosives at mosques in an attempt to trigger a race war.
