And what if we take into account all murders? What is the difference at the end of the day between different types of violence, does it affect the victims and their families? You are more likely to die in your bathtub than by an act of terrorism, and near-daily rampant violence across the country is eschewed to make a political point here and there. Remove "terrorism" from total violence, is there a significant drop, even in your arbitrary timelines?
On the flip-side, "ideologically inspired" is a buzzword meaning one thing and only that, because where a sick anti-theist who rants against religions guns down three muslims execution-style in their apartment he is given a pass because he called it a dispute over a parking space.
