Default Jihadist attacks in the West, 400 dead, what can we learn?

'Fear Thy Neighbour' is a lengthy report from ISPI, George Washington's Program on Extremism and the ICTI in The Hague and summarized in a BBC News item.

What did the research seek to answer? One author in the BBC item explains:

Although the vast majority of Islamist attacks are elsewhere in the world, an unprecedented number in Europe and North America - more than 50 in total - have put the authorities under great pressure to prevent further deaths. What do we know of the individuals who carried out the attacks - their life in the West, whether they were known to the authorities and with whom they were working?
The first look at the data behind the attacks - everything from the age of the perpetrators, to immigration status - offers counter-terrorism officials, and the public, an insight that could help them identify the best responses

Jihadist? But that would imply a Muslim affiliation, whereas these attacks were clearly orchestrated by irreligious, non-aligned and non-ideological "extremists"...
