Interesting Notes

The word “Islamophobia” (whose usage I despise; see Comment Policy) was apparently first used in English by Edward Said in this article (p. 99).
Less than three percent of terrorist attacks in Europe last year were religiously-motivated (most were committed by Corsican nationalists).
Most religiously motivated “hate crimes” in the United States in 2011 were committed against Jews. Only an eighth were committed against Muslims.
