Are Whites the ‘Biggest Terror Threat in This Country’?
Chris Roberts, American Renaissance, March 29, 2022
Liberals and leftists often claim that whites are the race most responsible for terrorism in America. For example:
- “Don Lemon Says ‘The Biggest Terror Threat In This Country Is White Men’,” by Alanna Vagianos, Huffington Post, October 31, 2018
- “White supremacy ‘most lethal’ threat to America, Biden says,” by Katherine Doyle, Washington Examiner, April 28, 2021
- “Far-right terror poses bigger threat to US than Islamist extremism post-9/11,” by Joanna Walters, The Guardian, September 8, 2021
Sometimes, headlines make the claim sound objective:
- “Top law enforcement officials say the biggest domestic terror threat comes from white supremacists,” by Eileen Sullivan and Katie Benner, New York Times, May 12, 2021
When the race of a terrorist is unknown, some leftists openly want him to be white:
- “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American,” by David Sirota, Salon, April 16, 2013
Whether Mr. Sirota got his wish is subject to debate. The Boston Marathon bombers were two brothers of Chechen and Avar descent:
Most people do not think Asian Muslims are white, but the US government does. As explained in-depth by H.A. Scott Trask, America’s census has no separate categories for North Africans, Turks, Persians, Middle Easterners, Arabs, or Central Asians. All of them are “white.” Here is the federal government’s map of white countries:
If you think all these people are white, then America does have a serious problem with white terrorists. All the September 11 terrorists were “white.” It would mean that the FBI’s current list of most wanted terrorists is almost entirely white. Of the 44 people listed with names and photos, there are only six blacks (Ishmael Muslim Ali, Ambrose H. Montfort, George E. Wright, Cheri Laverne Dalton, Liban Haji Mohamed, and Joanne Deborah Chesimard) and one Asian: Raddulan Sahiron, an Arabic-speaking Filipino who is an Islamic terrorist. There are three men with Hispanic names. One of them, Daniel Andreas San Diego, is listed as white. The other two, William “Guillermo” Morales and Jose Espinosa Caballero, are both “White (Hispanic).”
Of the other 34, five are white. Four are women and all of them are leftists. And the FBI had to go back decades to include some of them.
Who are the other 29? The FBI doesn’t assign a race to them, though some are categorized by “complexion.” For example, Saudi Arabian Ibrahim Salih Mohammed Al-Yacoub has “olive” complexion:
Palestinian Husayn Muhammad Al-Umari has a “light” complexion:
Moroccan Abd Al Rahman Al Maghrebi’s complexion is said to be “light to medium.” Judge for yourself:
Afghani/Pakistani Sirajuddin Haqqani’s complexion is said to be “light with wrinkles.” That’s hard to tell from his photo.
All 29 of these raceless terrorists are from Islamic countries (by birth or by ancestry) outside Europe. According to the American census, terrorists from southern Afghanistan are white, but those from northern Pakistan are Asian. That makes one of them, Sajid Mir, Asian.
The race of two others, Sirajuddin Haqqani (above) and Abdullah Shair Khan (below), are unknown, since their birthplaces are not listed.
That means that if you follow the guidelines set by the Census, the liberals are right. Of our country’s 44 most wanted terrorists:
- 77 percent are white
- 14 percent are black
- 4.5 percent are Asian
- 4.5 percent are unknown, but either Asian or white.
but here’s what you get if you separate out Hispanics, North Africans, and Asian Muslims:
- Hispanic: 7 percent (3)
- White: 11 percent (5)
- Black: 14 percent (6)
- Muslims from Asia or North Africa: 68 percent (30)
The share of Hispanics would be much higher if gangs such as MS-13 and Mexican drug cartels were called terrorist groups. Since they are not, Hispanics are underrepresented as terrorists, but dominate lists of murderers and criminal enterprisers. Blacks, who commit the majority of violent crime in America, are underrepresented.
As whites, the next time you hear that we are the number-one terror threat, you can agree — so long as Muhammad Abdullah Khalil Hussain Ar-Rahayyal and his ilk are white.
