Ramadan Bombathon – Final Tally for 2017

Ramadan Bombathon – Final Tally for 2017.

The death toll this year is down almost 10% on last year — though the number of attacks is down about 20%, so the attacks are deadlier on average. The new feature is that Muslims killed by “Islamophobes” leapt up from zero, to 0.13% of those killed by Islam.

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.
