US Homegrown terrorism still a small threat, study says

Homegrown terrorism is not a significant threat in the US, according to Professor Charles Kurzman, a professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina and co-author of “Anti-Terror Lessons of Muslim-American Communities.”

The study reveals that the number of individuals involved in terrorism in the US was only 139 since 2001, not enough of an increase to label it a trend, even after the Fort Hood and Christmas Day incidents.
