Scared and reality

I keep reading thread after thread where all the fears of one religion keep coming out.

 

For those who wish to stay rooted in reality I provide the following to help ease your fears and put your feat back on solid ground and out of paranoia and fear.

 

Take them in any order you wish but check them all to see where each one comes from and how they all mesh together to show you your risks are all around you and in reality are not 'terrorists' like you envision them.

 

Indeed some of you are probably on the road to join the real dangerous category if you are not already there.

Despite public anxiety about extremists inspired by Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, the number of violent plots by such individuals has remained very low. Since 9/11, an average of nine American Muslims per year have been involved in an average of six terrorism-related plots against targets in the United States. Most were disrupted, but the 20 plots that were carried out accounted for 50 fatalities over the past 13 and a half years.

In contrast, right-wing extremists averaged 337 attacks per year in the decade after 9/11, causing a total of 254 fatalities, according to a study by Arie Perliger, a professor at the United States Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center. The toll has increased since the study was released in 2012.

Put your critical thinking hats on and live in reality and you will realize that the terrorists are of virtually no risk to you and when you and your leaders get all excited about their criminal activity you are rewarding them for theor violence and encouraging them to try again.
