De Graaf notes that terrorist attacks in the name of right-wing extremism tend to get less attention than jihadist terrorist attacks. This can be explained by the fact that right-wing extremism is not centrally organized, such as jihadism is. An attack is therefore blamed on an individual, not on a group or ideology.
