Jihad Stats from Dutch newspaper via LGF
Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad reports that in the period between September 11, 2001 and April 15, 2004, Islamic terrorists have killed at least 7,085 people and wounded 10,132 in 393 attacks around the world.
LGF's Charles Johnson notes that this does include attacks in Israel; he also cautions that some of the numbers include the terrorists as well. He links to a chart of the results of the study for more information.

ALSO NOTE Comment #8 by "jhs" brings our attention to this Reuters story about a gunbattle in Kosovo . . . between two Americans and a Jordanian . . . started as an argument over Iraq. . . The three, who were all shot dead, were members of the UN law enforcement mission there.

I wonder if these three will be counted in the moslimterreur study? It wasn't a terror attack per se, but it's not altogether unrelated, assuming the Jordanian was not an infidel. Definite grey area.
