The study deals with terrorist, historical, cultural, economic, militaristic, political and secular factors of the popularity of Islamophobia in the countries of the Western world. Religiously motivated terrorist acts, which in recent times have been taking place in the Western countries, are the first factor. The presence of a historical basis of the Muslim-European confrontation is the second factor. The conflict of identities, which we can observe in the West countries between the local population and Muslim migrants, is the third factor. Fourthly, many European citizens consider Muslim migrants as persons who hold a significant part of their taxes. The modern wars in the territories of the Muslim states are the fifth factor. The political ambitions of the rightwing forces in the West are the sixth factor. Religionophobia that is popular in some European countries is the seventh factor.
