Is Friday The Deadliest Day?

Following on from my analysis of Islamic terror to determine if Ramadan is an especially deadly month, I have done another analysis, this time to see if Friday is the deadliest day. It is rumored that Muslims are particularly violent on Fridays because they are inspired to carry out attacks following Friday prayers. They are whipped into sanctimonious rage and murderous fervor by their imams.

Using the data from thereligionofpeace.com I have tested this hypothesis and found it to be false. Taking all the data from TROP for the period September 11th 2001 to July 1st 2016 and aggregating it by day of the week, it turns out that Friday is the day when an Islamic attack is least likely to occur.

Here is the chart:
