Stunning Terrorism Statistics that Nobody Wants You to Know

Terrorists, Counter-Terror “Experts”, and Governments Are All Motivated to Cover Up the Facts

Experts say that  terrorists are strongly motivated –  for two reasons – to exaggerate their abilities to inflict damage:

(1)  Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims”.  So terrorists exaggerate their destructive abilities in order to increase intimidation and push their aims


(2) The more damage people believe that a terrorist group has inflicted, the more donations and funding they will receive from radical extremists.  Specifically, radicals are more likely to fund terrorists who are “effective” in inflicting damage than those who can’t pull off murder and mayhem

So terrorists want to exaggerate how much damage they’ve actually inflicted.

Likewise, the type of counter-terror experts who frequently appear on the mainstream news are motivated to hype the terror threat, because it drums up business  for them.

The more scared of terrorism people are, the more books they’ll sell on terrorism, the more people will pay them to give talks on terrorism, and the more they’ll be asked to appear on mainstream news.  So they don’t want you to know the real statistics on terror, either.

And the government has also exaggerated the threat of terrorism for political purposes  (literally seeing a terrorist under every bush).   For example, FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, a top constitutional and military law expert, Time magazine, the Washington Post and others have all said that U.S. government officials “were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power”.  Indeed, the former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge admitted that he was pressured to raise terror alerts to help Bush win reelection.  The threat from Islamic terrorists – while real – has been greatly exaggerated. Former U.S. National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski – also a top foreign policy advisor to President Obama – told the Senate that the war on terror is a “a mythical historical narrative”.

Indeed, the government justifies its geopolitical goals – including seizing more power at home, and overthrowing Syria in 1949, Iran in 1953, Iraq twice, Afghanistan twice, Turkey, Libya, and other oil-rich countries – by hyping the terror menace.   So the government wants you to be scared out of your pants by the risk of terrorism.

So what are the real terrorism facts?

The actual statistics are stunning:

  • Daniel Benjamin – the Coordinator for Counterterrorism at the United States Department of State from 2009 to 2012 – notes today (at 10:22):

The total number of deaths from terrorism in recent years has been extremely small in the West.  And the threat itself has been considerably reduced. Given all the headlines people don’t have that perception; but if you look at the statistics that is the case.

  • Non-Muslims also carried out the vast majority of terrorist attacks in Europe as well

Postscript:  While terrorists, counter-terror “experts” and governments are trying to scare the pants off you, the truth is that – if we refuse to be terrorized – we win and the terrorists lose.

    War is only business by other means.

    Every media outlet knew when they were publishing them, that the videos of the Paris shooting were fake.

    That means if you work for one of them, you are a terrorist.

    Every government person who has fought the alternative media from exposing that this “fake terrorism” is fake, is by the definition above, a terrorist.

    So, if you are a government agent – from any government – who is promoting fake acts to get what your handlers want – you are a terrorist.

    And if you are one who is promoting terrorism, you need to stop, and think about what you are doing. Is it really what you stand for? Is it really worth a paycheck to perform evil and deceptive work? Maybe you’ve made that decision and justified it and think you are doing what you are told, or that you are “Saving lives” – but that is simply not true. You are doing the opposite. You actually are the terrorist.

    You are allowing your evil handlers to manipulate the truth, to kill people without justification, to steal others security and happiness; to steal other’s lives, and you are allowing them to manipulate you.

    You need to think about putting a stop to it. Right here, right now. If a number of people were to expose the lies, then “fake terrorism” would cease to be an effective method, and it would cease to exist. These fake events are simply too big to keep under wraps.

    • John P

      What evidence do you have that the videos of the Paris shootings are fake? Nearly all press reports indicated that a female police officer was killed by the gunman.

      There has been an increasing problem with the Muslim population of Western scoieties. We welcomed theseople to our countries. What have we been given in return? Many problems including welfare fraud, expectations that we adapt to their 7th century values, and terrorism. Perhaps the first step is to STOP all Musl immigration. Second is to rapidly deport those who commit crimes back to their home country. Third consider re settlement of the masses back to where they or their families came from.

      This would solve many problems!!!!

      • Dragonfly

        If you watch the video and have Any knowledge of an ak47, besides “they are scary”, you will notice the following: no head movement at point blank, no gun recoil and no blood. What should you have seen? Gun recoil, blood and head movement…. Or no head at all!!

        • james

          I could add a dozen other elements that prove the video of the cop shooting was fake.

          There was no cartridges ejecting from the AK-47

          The sound of the gun firing was not an AK-47

          The bullet – even if it missed the officer’s head – did not leave a mark in the sidewalk – just a puff of dust – it would have blown a divot in the concrete at that distance

          The shooter not only didn’t experience recoil, he did not show any signs of adrenaline pump from just killing someone. He made no effort to scan for additional threats. He moved without urgency or purpose. – all completely inconsistent with the actions.

          The street and sidewalk were totally empty of other cars and pedestrians

          The camera was perfectly positioned to get the act. And panned directly to the actual point of the shooting at the exact right moment.

          The street was marked where the car was parked in the end of the video, but had no such markings in the beginning of the video.

          There were two identical rental trucks parked on the street.

          And you cannot tell me that TV stations that broadcast the video – folks that review video in great detail every single day – did not see these thing That’s ludicrous.

          No the TV news folks are complicit in this act of terrorism against the citizens of the world. They are terrorists.

          That poor man is consumed with right wing ‘talking points’. Not an original thought in his head. Check out his profile. LOL He is one that would fall in the category of being a ‘follower’, supports the Bolshevik State calling itself ‘Israel’ because he was ‘told’ they are God’s chosen people, probably calls himself a Christian, refuses to support anything to do with ‘gay’ folks, yet supports sending the Bolsheviks all the tax dollars they request . Because he only uses his computer to spread the propaganda he was taught via the corporate media instead of researching for actual facts, he does not realize that the Bolshevik Talmudic state he worships and replaced the “TRUE ISRAEL OF GOD” (Jesus) with is advertised, promoted world wide and proudly calls itself the number 1 vacation destination of GAY PEOPLE !!! I bet he knows nothing about their government funded abortions or the fact if caught giving out Bibles and talking about Jesus, he would be arrested or that Zionism is a fancy name for communism of which it came from. If he knows of the USS Liberty, he would defend his god Israel believing their lies over the testimony of the US Navy survivors. It would not matter that the tapes have been released.
          Some people are so consumed with hating ‘the other’, they had rather live a lie then take a chance of realizing the men they have been following and idolizing are evil liars . They feel as if they belong to a team and to question the coach could get them tossed off their team and they are too ignorant and evil to be accepted on another team.
          In other words, it is a total waste of time to try and share the truth with him if it goes against his agenda. lol

        Your solution makes no sense, and is not viable because of it.

        “problems” are relative to communities and furthermore to individuals.

        What are the problems facing individuals who are being harassed and marginalized due to the belief, your belief, that because of who they choose to pray or think, they are forced to take up the slack of the individuals committing acts of violence in the name of their higher power?

        Surely, a man of your stature has much more constructive and democratic solutions to this absurd violence from BOTH sides.

        The French government owes the muslim people the welfare money. It is because the French was one of the donors of the IS movement back in the days before it becomes too powerful. Million of Syrians died because of the French government donation to murderers and rapist. Now its time for u guys to take the responsibilties eventhough it is not enough. Im sorry, maybe u r one of the unfortunate tax payers that have to result as a consequence of ur government. But, stop putting the blame on Muslim. It is the Christian governments that make the world becomes so fucked up, just to satisfy their own greedy lust.

    “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.” — Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

    We are about to open a door for terrorist’s, drugs and drug cartels and any other ruthless criminal activity you can think of. These items will gladly be shipped here from Cuba since their inspectors and leaders are always looking for ways to make money when it will not hurt them. leave it to the Moron Mayor of Tampa Fl. who just gave away the port area and all of our money with it to blindly ( maybe he does know ) offer a deal for Cuba with an embassy.. It will destroy an already struggling economy in this area. If this happens just watch the gangs,drugs, murders and crime go through the roof. What do you expect from a man who likes Sibelius and Obama Care.

            You assume a lot so I guess you are a liberal or an idiot ( same ) 50% of the slave holders in the south were black along with many Irish slaves fro England called indentured servants. many of the soldiers in the Confederate army were also black since they also had a lot to lose and had their slaves serving.

  • Really? I don’t believe you. Six of my friends were witnessing in Dearborn MI. When they gathered together at a corner, to decide where they were going to meet for lunch, one of the Muslim residents jumped into a van, aimed it at my friends, then floored it. The Muslim didn’t kill anyone, but injured ALL of them, and several went to the hospital. Records of the incident were erased, except for ONE newspaper article. Nothing happened to the Muslim, even though 6 counts of attempted murder were charged against him. He’s still walking around free, while all my friends lives have been shattered.

  • desertspeaks

    Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims”… Now according to their own definition.

    when the police attack protestors, the police are terrorists,.. when the police/fbi/nsa attack someone for speaking out against the crime syndicate known as the government, the government/police/fbi/nsa/etc,.. is/are the terrorist/terrorists..

    • sleat

      Very, very valid points, but I have to make a minor distinction here.

      By the strict definition of “Terrorism” that people use when referring to, say, the IRA, who may have been the last actual group who did any terrorism that completely fits the accepted description, the terrorism needs to be violence executed by non-state-actors.

      When the IRA acted, they generally would clearly identify themselves as responsible, often BEFORE THE FACT, plus they would state the end goals of said “Terrorism”. I.E. “This act is protest to the British Forces occupying Dublin, and was executed wholly by the UVF (Ulster Volunteer Force)”.

      Not this cheezy, violence-with-no-self-defined-perpetrator-taking-credit that we get these days, where the “suspected perpetrator” is always identified by The Media alone.

      There is absolutely no point at all for “terrorists” engaging in any violence for political reasons where the end goal and group doing it is not identified. Such acts only serve to strengthen the victim country’s military-industrial-complex and provide justification for more needless randomly directed wars.

      And this subtle (is it really that subtle?) pair of features is lacking in virtually ALL violent acts perpetrated in the past 15 years which have been ascribed by the media to “terrorists”.

      If a state (or Nation State) does violence to further a political agenda, it is (depending on the technique, and eventual results of the attack) either an Act Of War, or a War Crime.

      Therefore, any violence not justified by Rule of Law by a state or Nation State against anyone, including The State’s own citizens/residents, would be an Act of War, or a War Crime, depending on the breaks.

      • james

        So you claim that by 1. Not identifying themselves, and 2. Not making a claim of their purpose; then that excludes perpetrators from being terrorists?

        Sorry, I fully disagree, and if the public could understand, I bet they would agree with me.

        if you you pull off a massive hoax of a violent act, that dominates the news media, with the express intent of inciting the masses toward action, that has gone beyond the realm of propaganda and has now moved into terrorism.

        You have stolen people’s civil liberties on a massive scale. Those who are now fear stricken will act out – some violently, some less so – which is what you are inciting. The problem is those whom you are inciting them against are innocent.

        By manufacturing news media and controlling those who are exposing you, you are stealing resources from the people to be used against them.

        Make no mistake, you are a terrorist if you do these things. And I don’t care if you get coerced or trapped in the game. If you propagate these lies, then you are one of the terrorists. You are not doing noble work. You are doing evil work.

        Those who are doing these things are either blatant psychopaths, with no dishonor, or they have somehow rationalized these things in their minds – perhaps in the manner you argue above. If so, they are dead wrong. They, and those who assist them to distribute the lies and hide the truth are terrorists.

        Therefore, if you work for one of the companies that is pulling down the truth videos; if you work for the news media that is distributing the lies; if you work for the government that is controlling the information, or building the events, or building confusing alternative “conspiracy theories”, or disseminating untruths – YOU ARE A TERRORIST.

        • sleat

          So, just to clarify, are you saying that State Based Actors doing political violence against their own citizens or against the citizens of other states are “terrorists” doing “terrorism”?

          Because my main point is that there needs to be a distinction there.

          In the State Based Actors case, the main criminal is the government who sanctions the act, and possibly also the perpetrators themselves. In the other case the criminal is a person or group of persons who is specifically not representing the government of a country.

          And this is a huge deal. If one is fighting terrorism, it’s the difference between going after a group or effectively going to war with a whole country, or countries.

          Many lives can be saved by quietly taking down a group of 500 or so people vs openly invading and attacking a country of 50 million.

          • james

            Nope, only through this event have I come to the conclusion of who the real terrorists are, and I wouldn’t know applied psychology from applied physiology.

            I know logic and I look for the truth.

            Yes, I’m saying government actors and the people it employs/controls to perpetrate a hoax on this scale are terrorists, and I’m saying there is no distinction.

            I’m saying the people who tell us they are leading the fight against terrorism appear to be the terrorists themselves. If they think they somehow avoid that moniker because they are government perpetrators vs. some radical group they are wrong.

            The Paris event was a terrorist act. It just wasn’t a terrorist act as it was portrayed by the news media. It was fake. And those who are proving it’s fake and expressing dissent from the party line are being suppressed

            Why is it a huge deal to call government actors who create “fake terrorism” terrorists?

            Furthermore – the terrorists here are not just one government, or all of a government. Every world leader who marched in that unity march is complicit as well. Even if they are not personally familiar with video analysis or guns, they surely have people who are.

            It took 1 view of the cop shooting video for me to think it was fake, and 1 more view for me to know for sure. I assure you that no one who knows how to handle an automatic weapon would come to any other conclusion.

            The event was fake and the perpetrators of the event are Terrorists. There is no other logical conclusion.

          • sleat

            Totally agree. I’m glad you’re awake, and open to the idea that we’re being lied to.

            [Why is it a huge deal to call government actors who create “fake terrorism” terrorists?]

            Because there is a distinction. Real terrorists, despite being amoral, bloodthirsty, criminal, and violent, are at least not dishonest about it.

            Murdering and framing someone else for it is worse than murder alone, if that’s possible.

    Ones’ terrorists could be heroes for others.

    John Feffer is a co-director of ‘Foreign Policy in Focus’, a US think tank. In his August 6, 2009 article titled Their Martyrs and Our Heroes wrote: “We have our suicide bombers – we call them heroes. We have our culture of indoctrination – we call it basic training. We kill civilians, we call it collatoral damage….We have been indoctrinated to view the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a legitimate military target and 9/11 as a heinous crime against humanity. We have been trained to see acts like the attack in Tripoli as American heroism and attack at USS Cole as rank barbarism (though carried out by Israeli agents). Explosive vest is a sign of exremism; Predator missiles, of advanced sensibility….. Remove the occupying force and the suicide missions would disappear. It is not a stretch, then, to conclude that we, the occupiers (the US, Russia, Israel), through our actions, have played a significant part in formenting the very suicide missions that we now find so alien and comprehensible in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Palestine, Lebanon, and elsewhere…..The fact is: Were we to end our occupation policies, we would go a long way toward eliminating “their” suicide bombers. But when and how will we end our own cult of martyrdom?”

    Israeli scholar Rueven Paz wrote about USrael’s “Islamic terrorist organization”, Hamas, – for the most powerful Jewish think tank, Council for Foreign Relations (CFR), published January 7, 2009: “Hamas devotes 90% of its work to providing social, cultural, and educational services. It has a reputation for honesty that distinguishes it from its main political rival, Fatah.”

    • james

      This is a good point.

      And it is why a very healthy amount of debate and understanding is necessary before anyone is allowed to attack another in an act of war.

      And why this “War on Terror” is so dangerous – because debate is suppressed.

      I cannot debate Hiroshima or Nagasaki – it was long ago and the motivations were complex, and the understanding of the technology was emerging. Regardless, the decision makers didn’t hide and they took responsibility.

      The difference now is that we appear to have acts of terror being carried out not by traditional terrorists, but by those who say they are fighting terror. – with the intent of inciting actions against those who are innocent.

      It is time to “untrain” the masses to accept what we seeing in the media at face value. It’s time to force people to get independent verification of the facts.

    Why is terrorism synonymous with the identity of Muslim and Islam in the article? Now let’s get the real facts.
    Already the construct of the contemporary terrorist is radicalized, gendered and associated with an agenda against “the West” and American Occidental culture, white middle class respectability, and Christianity.

    Which is silly, because bigotry and racism has a lot in common with both the violence of colonialism and the violence used by the people committi
    ng violent acts today: domination.

    The tactics used by the United States military on the Native population of North America. Wait, terrorism is defined by governments as a group that commits acts of violence to instill deep fear, and is NOT affiliated directly with a sovereign government. Who makes governments sovereign? The United Nations (The U.S.)… so?
