sudden jihad syndrome
 n.— «This is what I have dubbed the Sudden Jihad Syndrome, whereby normal-appearing Muslims abruptly become violent. It has the awful but legitimate consequence of casting suspicion on all Muslims. Who knows whence the next jihadi? How can one be confident a law-abiding Muslim will not suddenly erupt in a homicidal rage? Yes, of course, their numbers are very small, but they are disproportionately much higher than among non-Muslims.» —“Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)” by Daniel Pipes New York Sun (New York City) Mar. 14, 2006.
