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:
Quote:
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:
Quote:
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:
Quote:
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).
