Opinion: Homegrown terrorists are not just Muslims – Rep. Bennie Thompson – POLITICO.com.

Today‚Äôs terrorists do not share a particular ethnic, educational or socioeconomic background. Recently, when state law enforcement agencies were asked to identify terror groups in their states, Muslim extremist groups ranked 11th on a list of 18. 

Law enforcement agencies identified neo-Nazis, environmental extremists and anti-tax groups as more prevalent than Muslim terrorist organizations. The sophisticated explosive device found along a parade route in Washington on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, an act of domestic terrorism clearly motivated by racist ideology, should prove that other groups are just as willing and able to carry out horrific attacks on Americans.

  1. When there is a bombing incident or any act of terrorism we should not put our fingers right away on muslim groups. There are plenty of groups nowadays that want to create chaos and disturbance so that they will be heard. They should look at all the possible side and then draw their conclusion.
