You would never know it from the sharia-compliant left-wing media, but the latest FBI statistics are out, and they prove, yet again, what a myth “islamophobia” really is. The fact is that “islamophobia” is a device designed to crush any criticism of Islam. It is the knee-jerk response to jihad carnage — victimizing the victim. Islamic supremacists and their leftist shills now decry “islamphobia” during Islamic jihad terror attacks. It is a vicious, ugly lie.
It’s too bad that the FBI doesn’t break down how many of the few “anti-Muslim” hate crimes are committed by Muslims. We often find that some of these acts of vandalism are done by Muslims in order to give proof to the islamophobia lie.

The data revealed also showed a drop in Islamophobic crimes by 11 percent in 2017. There were 273 such incidents throughout the year.
Overall, hate crimes were up by 17 percent in 2017, marking the third straight year the FBI reported an increase in such cases.
The FBI said the spike is partially due to more police departments sharing hate crime information with the organization.
“[The report] provides further evidence that more must be done to address the divisive climate of hate in America,” Jonathan A. Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said. “That begins with leaders from all walks of life and from all sectors of society forcefully condemning anti-Semitism, bigotry, and hate whenever it occurs.”
The number of hate crimes in 2017 increased to a total of 7,175, including attacks based on race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation – up from 6,121 in 2016.
Anti-Semitic crimes last year totaled about 13 percent of all reported incidents….
