I doubt that these statistics are correct. Many hate crimes against Jews are not even reported, and many hate crimes against Muslims have turned out to have been faked by Muslims themselves. Yet all the hate crimes against Muslims receive international headlines, while the hate crimes against Jews are ignored.
And even taking these statistics at face value, they show that despite all the media and government hysteria about “islamophobia,” hate crimes against Jews are still far more common than hate crimes against Muslims. Where is the Trudeau government’s “Anti Jew-Hatred” Motion? Why the sole focus on Muslims?
Also, why are hate crimes against Jews increasing? Obviously because of Canada’s rapidly increasing number of Muslims. But all we will continue to hear about is “islamophobia.”
“LEVY: Toronto hate crimes up 28% in 2017,” by Sue-Ann Levy, Toronto Sun, April 18, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
…Hate crimes were up 28% in Toronto in 2017 with 186 reported occurrences compared to the year before — the highest number of incidents in the past 15 years.The most targeted group yet again?
According to the annual Toronto Police Service Hate Crime report, it was the Jewish community with 53 incidents or 28% of all hate crimes reported — mostly involving mischief to property such as vandalism or graffiti.
Those 53 incidents represent a disturbing 23% increase over the previous year.
Occurrences directed at Toronto’s black and Muslim communities were tied at 33 each — which each represented 18% of all groups victimized by hate occurrences. Incidents against both of these communities also increased from 22 each in 2016.
The LGBTQ community was subjected to 22 occurrences in 2017, the report also notes.
While the general increase is troubling, one has to remember that the Jewish community represents only 3.8% of the religious population in Toronto — while being targeted with 28% of the hate crimes.
That compares to the Muslim community which is 8.2% of Toronto’s religious population and the black community which represents nearly 9% of the city’s visible minorities….
B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn said Wednesday that while the report is concerning, this “sadly” is nothing new for the Jewish community.
“For years Jews have remained Toronto’s single most targeted group for hate crimes, despite our very small numbers,” he said….
