Re: <nettime> Worldwide Travel Alert: Go back to sleep America


As Bill Hicks is rolling with laughter in his grave, we turn to Foreign
Policy for the sane [sic] view: "...the threat is already inside":

https://foreignpolicy.com/2015/11/20/the-threat-is-already-inside-uncomfortable-truths-terrorism-isis/

"Right-wing extremists in the United States still kill more people than
jihadis. The 2011 attack in Norway ??? which left 77 people dead ??? was
carried out by a single far-right terrorist, Anders Behring Breivik.
Since 2006, more than half of all deaths in terror attacks in the west
have been caused by non-Islamist ???lone wolf??? attackers, most motivated
by right wing extremism or separatist sentiments. "
