New FBI hate crime stats out for 2011, guess who is suffering the most?

If you listen to CAIR, MSA, MPAC, ISNA or any of the myriad organizations claiming to represent Muslims in the US you will be inundated with misleading rhetoric, outright lies and shameful posturing about the plight of all the poor, oppressed Muslims suffering undue demonization at the hands of the evil West (re; Zionists) and the angry mobs of "Islamophobes" with pitchforks and torches.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Once again, 2011 has turned out to be a bad year to be a Jew, with over 63% of religious hate crimes committed against them.  Only 13% of religiously motivated hate crimes were against Muslims.  This has been the norm for many years, and any claim of victimization by Muslims is founded on an entitled view of themselves, and a belief that Islam is a better thought pattern than any Western or secular viewpoint.  Remember these numbers the next time someone tries to tell you about the rampant and all-pervasive anti-Muslim bias they claim exists.  Then ask them why they do not stand for Israel and the Jews.

FBI Figures: Still No ‘Wave of Islamophobia’

Hate crimes reported to U.S. law enforcement agencies declined six percent from 2010 to 2011, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s annual statistics. The 6,222 reported hate crimes were the fewest since 1994.

“Nearly half of hate crimes reported in 2011 were racially motivated,” The Baltimore Sun noted (“U.S. hate crimes decline,” December 11). Religious bias accounted for nearly one-fifth of the total. “Thirteen percent of the 936 religious bias crimes were anti-Islamic, but the large majority [63.2] were anti-Semitic in nature.”

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin (“Right Turn,” “Hate-crime incidents down,” December 11) asserted that the total number of religious hate crimes, for a nation of more than 310 million people, “is tiny.”

Statistically speaking it is a tiny number, especially when compared to Islamic countries.  America, with all it's warts is still one of the most tolerant and inclusive countries on planet earth.
