Islamic (Arabic) terminology that has entered popular culture (with negative connotations)

1. Jihad — mindless killing of infidels and heretics.

2. Fatwa — an order to kill, especially from a religious leader.

3. Sharia — totalitarian system in which every transgression is punished by beheadings, floggings and stoning of women.

4. Hijab — oppressive piece of clothing, preferrably black.

5. Mullah — male religious leader, always bearded, prone to ranting against Jews and America.
