Austria is a notoriously xenophobic country in Europe, at least stereotypically. I don't want to imply what dieter is or is not, but parts of Austrian society's objection to Islam probably influenced him, rather than what he thinks of Americans' views of Islam. Going off on a tangent...I don't know what other non-American commenters think, but I occasionally find Bloggingheads' Americentrism a bit annoying (if completely understandable).
