Ramadan Bombathon – Final Tally for 2016. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which the Quran was revealed. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. This year it ran from 6 June to 6 July inclusive.
Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia.” We put that narrative to the test each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks, categorized by motive.
It’s far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different.
See What Muslims Believe. Main points:
- Islam is both a religion and a totalitarian political ideology.
- It is not like other religions, because its political side is a meme for world conquest.
- Islam is the culture of seventh century Arabia.
- The Qur’an is the unchallengeable word of God, dictated to Mohammed by the archangel Gabriel and not open to later re-interpretation. For centuries fundamentalists have prevented Islam from moving far from its roots.
