The recent plot by an American Muslim to bomb and shoot fellow servicemen, and the successful terror plot in Norway by as white, right-wing Christian, are changing the notions of where terrorist threats primarily emerge from. In the first instance, George Washington University's Frank Cillufo, a counter-terrorism experts, says the threat of home-grown terrorists, Muslims living inside the US, has grown substantially in the past few years. Jonathon Broader of the Foreign Policy Congressional Quarterly, says extremists within the US military are particularly of concern. Similarly, the Norway attacks highlight the threat from right-wing extremists, who are often anti-Muslim. Harvard's Justin Gest says one positive to emerge from that attack is that the stereotypes of Muslims being the primary suspects of terror attacks will begin to change.
