The real hate crimes are being committed by devout Muslim jihad terrorists around the world every day: over 20,000 jihad attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. The FBI’s latest statistics give the lie yet again to the victimhood-mongering of Hamas-CAIR, which by claiming that there has been a wave of “Islamophobia” hopes to intimidate Americans into thinking there’s something “racist” or “bigoted” about resisting jihad terror.
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.”
This comparatively good news contradicts claims, like those made
previously by CAIR and others that following al Qaeda’s Sept. 11, 2001
terrorist attacks, the United States has experienced a wave of
“Islamophobia.” (See, for example, CAMERA’s Special Report,
“The Council on American Islamic Relations: Civil Rights, or
Extremism?” page 9). If the statistics reported to the FBI are
representative, then regardless of war in Afghanistan (and recently
Iraq) and terrorism and attempted terrorism by Muslim extremists at
home, America remains a pretty tolerant place.
