Of course they're English terms, they're just loanwords. (and so of course they're also German, Dutch presumably, Greek etc terms. Only one of these has the honour of being the originator of those terms.)

For example, schadenfreude is an English term, because it's a term that's used in English, even though it's a loanword from German.

Haha if it's in Oxford it's good enough to be considered an English word even for dirty prescriptivists like me. Doesn't mean it isn't a loanword, but as you say, there you go :P

I venture to say it would be difficult to find someone of whom this isn't true for at least one deeply-held belief. It's just a human thing.

Yeah, okay. That might be true. There are beliefs that you tend to let go from easier, and stuff that you kinda defend really hard, because they are part of your personality, of yourself, and how you define yourself. But I think there are more and more people that go through their life with so much ignorance, that you can't even discuss with them about some very basic stuff because they'll deny everything that collides with their view of the world.
