Is “Remove Kebab” internet meme a reference to the massacre of Bosnian by Serbian?
Yes and no. ‘Kebab’ is a satirical ethno-religious slur used to refer to Muslims in general. Since the meme supposedly originated in Serbia, it used to refer to Turks, Bosniaks and, to a lesser extent, Albanians.The kebab meme is linked to a video filmed by Bosnian Serbs during the Bosnian War called ‘God is a Serb’ and colloquially referred to as ‘Serbia stronk’.

In a recent study, we found that the news media do not cover all terrorist attacks the same way. Rather, they give drastically more coverage to attacks by Muslims, particularly foreign-born Muslims — even though those are far less common than other kinds of terrorist attacks.
Here’s how we defined terrorism and measured the coverage. We first looked at all attacks in the United States between 2011 and 2015, as listed in the Global Terrorism Database.
