"Jihadist terrorist activities in Europe, which far outnumber those in the United States, are now mostly run by independent local groups, though the more serious plots appear to have connections to groups in North Africa or the Middle East, according to a new Rand Corp. study. The study, conducted for the Pentagon, was released last week. Although Americans generally just think of jihadist terrorists as threatening the United States, 'on average ... European authorities arrest some 200 individuals and thwart a handful of plots of jihadist inspiration every year,' according to the study." (07/13/11)
