Threat of terrorism once was worse than now

eu-terrorism1As this chart shows, terrorist attacks were more frequent and lethal back in the 1970s and 1980s than they are now.

I’ve read the statement that while not all Muslims are terrorists, all terrorists are Muslims.  Not so!

The terrorism of the 1970s was spearheaded by left-wing radical extremists such as the German Red Army Faction and the Italian Red Brigades.  The Oslo bombing and Utøya Island massacre was carried out by a lone anti-Islamic fascist.

Terrorism is a tactic that can be, and is, used by people with all sorts of beliefs.
