This paper discusses recent evidence that suggests that right-wing terrorism in Europe is a more serious threat than generally believed. The author reviews neo-Nazi and neo-fascist attacks of the past seven years, traces their transnational connections, and discusses cooperation between left- and right-wing terrorists. The author cautions that the threat posed by neo-Nazi terrorists cannot be dismissed or separated from other terrorist movements active in Europe.
