Radical Muslims Behind 84 Percent of Terror Killings in the West, 67 Percent Foreign-Born. By Jack Montgomery.

Islamists were responsible for a massive 84.27 per cent of terror killings in the West in 2017, with 66.67 per cent of the perpetrators coming to their target country from abroad. …

Europe was the Western region most impacted in 2017, suffering some 75 per cent of all types of terrorist violence compared to 22.06 per cent for North America and 2.94 per cent for Australasia.

The United Kingdom was the worst affected individual country in the Western World, taking 19.12 per cent of terror-related incidents — up from 9.26 per cent in 2016 — and a remarkable 40.45 per cent of terror-related fatalities. …

The far-right was reportedly responsible for 20.59 per cent share of terrorism in the West in 2017 — quadruple its 2016 share of 5.56 per cent.

Unlike the majority of mainstream commentators and politicians, however, the Henry Jackson Society also highlighted the threat from the far-left, which accounted for the same 20.59 per cent share of terrorism as the far-right in 2017, and a 16.67 per cent share in 2016. …

Even more unusually, the Henry Jackson Society made the effort to record ‘Black Supremacist’ terrorism, which accounted for a more modest 3.28 per cent share of terrorist violence across 2016-17.
