    Default The myth of the ‘lone wolf’ terrorist

    Jason Burke, of The Observer, has a long read in The Guardian, a sister UK newspaper, which is excellent and could fit in several threads. The title is 'The myth of the ‘lone wolf’ terrorist' and sub-titled 'In recent years, references to such attacks have become inescapable. But this lazy term obscures the real nature of the threat against us.

    Three sample passages:
    Lazy talk of “lone wolves” obscures the real nature of the threat against us, and makes us all less safe.

    What research does show is that we may be more likely to find lone wolves among far-right extremists than among their jihadi counterparts.

    Any terrorist, however socially or physically isolated, is still part of a broader movement.

    Default More plunder available upon request

    Last week I attended an EU-funded project end conference, known
    as PRIME (Preventing, Interdicting and Mitigating Lone Actor Terrorism) in London, with a mixed audience of academics, practitioners and others.

    There were sessions on:

    Peripheral and Embedded: Patterns of lone actor radicalisation Dr Lasse Lindekilde, Aarhus University

    Lone actor extremists’ attack planning and preparation: A data driven analysis Dr Bart Schuurman, Leiden University

    Lone terrorists – A study of run-over attacks in Israel Dr Simon Perry, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

    Going beyond indicators in the analysis of lone-actor events: Implications for CT Dr Paul Gill, University College London

    Operational Dimensions of countering lone-actor extremism Dr Kacper Gradon, University of Warsaw

    Communicating to prevent, interdict and mitigate lone actor terrorism Dr Julia Pearce and Dr David Parker, King’s College London

    For each sub-project there were large posters on display and if anyone wants them, one or all, PM me with an email address and I can dispatch them. They are too large to load here.

    PRIME has a website, but the end reports are not yet openly published (as required by EU funding):http://www.fp7-prime.eu/home_page

    Default Europe's 1st white nationalist lone wolf inspired others

    A curious article 'Sweden's 'laser man' killer John Ausonius goes on trial in Germany' in The Guardian that suggests John Ausonius, 64yes, a convicted Swedish immigrant who became an extremist nationalist, who was responsible for eleven shootings 1991-1992 now serving a life sentence, inspired German nationalists to kill and Andreas Breivik too in July 2011. HE is due to appear in a Frankfurt, Germany court charged with a 1992 murder of a Holocaust survivor:
    Ausonius was the first white nationalist in Europe to adopt a “lone wolf” tactic of militant action, operating under the radar in order to avoid being detected and stopped by authorities.
    The German shootings have appeared before in another thread:
    The case in Frankfurt has been reopened partly because of speculation that the “laser man” shootings served as a blueprint for killings carried out between 2000 and 2007 by German neo-Nazi terrorist group National Socialist Underground (NSU).

    Default Lone Wolves in the EU

    Tried to find a pre-existing niche for this article, realized we lack a thread on the overall topic.

    MILAN — A lone Italian gunman wounded six African immigrants in a two-hour series of drive-by shootings Saturday in Macerata, a small Italian city where just days earlier a Nigerian man was arrested in the gruesome killing of a teenager, officials said.
    The shooting suspect was identified as Luca Traini, a 28-year-old with no previous record.
    Traini had run on a slate for the antimigrant Northern League party in a local election last year in the town of Corridonia, but the party lost. The news agency ANSA quoted friends as saying he had previously been affiliated with Italian extremist parties like the neo-fascist Forza Nuova and CasaPound.

    Deniz Naki, who currently plays for a Kurdish team, told German newspaper die Welt that he had been driving in the far-right lane on the highway on Sunday night when he "suddenly heard shots." He said that the shots came from a black car driving in the left lane.
    Naki, who has been outspoken about military operations against Turkey's Kurdish ethnic group by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government , said he believed the attack was politically motivated.

    Default Lone Actor Terrorists and Extreme Right Wing Violence

    Raffaello Pantucci's latest commentary (which is posted here and on the similar US thread), which is sub-titled:
    Recent attacks perpetrated by extreme right wing terrorists in the US are undoubtedly linked to the upcoming mid-term elections, reflecting the reality that the country’s charged political scene may be pushing would-be terrorists into action.

    Default Inside the minds of 45 lone-wolf terrorists

    A lengthy article in the Jerusalem Post which claims to:
    A unique research project reveals what makes lone wolves tick – and what could discourage future recruits......a team he assembled interviewed 45 lone wolf terrorists serving time in Israeli jails. In a rare mix of government support for the project and interest by the lone wolves to tell their stories, all but one of 46 interviewees who ICT requested participated in the program.
    Link:https://www.jpost.com/Magazine/Insid...rorists-576151
    There is a fair amount of selling a service from an Israel think tank.

    This should be interesting, whenever the Dutch deign to release the contents of said letter.

    Dutch prosecutors investigating the murder of three people on a tram said a letter found in the gunman's getaway car was among the reasons why a terrorist motive was being seriously considered.

    Three people were killed and three others seriously wounded in the attack in the central city of Utrecht.

    Turkish-born suspect Gokmen Tanis was arrested on Monday evening.

    No connection has been found between Mr Tanis and the victims of the attack.

    Police said on Tuesday that armed officers had arrested another suspect, a 40-year-old man, in Utrecht. A statement said he was "suspected of involvement" and his role was under investigation.
    I'd suggest that being a psychopath is actually a prerequisite to being a terrorist.

    A 47-year-old woman called Angelique told Algemeen Dagblad that Tanis was a drug user with a criminal record who was facing trial for raping her in 2017. She said he had recently been freed from custody after violating the conditions of an earlier release.

    "He's not a terrorist but a psychopath," she said.

    Default Six articles to read

    This post covers several topics so in a moment it will be copied to other threads on CT, lone wolves (inside the USA and beyond).

    Bruce Hoffman has two articles on the rise of the extreme right as a threat.

    The first is quite short and the second via WoTR is longer.

    So No.1:https://www.cfr.org/article/how-seri...list-terrorism and No.2:https://warontherocks.com/2019/04/ba...f-lone-wolves/

    Paul Gill, a UK-based academic writes on lone wolves after Christchurch:https://www.radionz.co.nz/national/p...oural-analysis

    Raffaello Pantucci (RUSI) adds his commentary, which mainly applies to the UK:https://raffaellopantucci.com/2019/0...-not-any-more/

    Then Steve Metz on why lone wolves and a somewhat pessimistic viewpoint IMHO:https://www.theamericanconservative....olf-terrorist/
