2010 FBI statistics destroy CAIR’s claim that ‘Islamophobic’ hate crimes against Muslims are at epidemic levels
As in each and every year since 2001, hate crimes against Muslims not only are not soaring, they are consistently low, despite the incessant whining of terror-linked groups like CAIR.
FBI If any religious group can claim it is under threat, it would be Jews. 65.4% of all reported hate crime incidents in 2010 were against Jews. And that number is more than the total number of hate crimes against all other identified religious groups combined. By contrast, just 13.2% of hate crime incidents were identified as anti-Islamic.
Indeed, given the constant drum-beat of terror plots and incitement perpetrated by Muslims against Americans, it is astonishing just how little anti-Muslim backlash there actually is.
Hate crimes motivated by religious bias accounted for 1,409 offenses reported by law enforcement. A breakdown of the bias motivation of religious-bias offenses showed:
- 65.4 percent were anti-Jewish.
- 13.2 percent were anti-Islamic.
- 9.5 percent were anti-other religion, i.e., those not specified.
- 4.3 percent were anti-Catholic.
- 3.8 percent were anti-multiple religions, group.
- 3.3 percent were anti-Protestant.
- 0.5 percent were anti-Atheism/Agnosticism/etc.
What’s more, the data demonstrates that America is actually a ‘mecca’ of integration, considering America’s huge population and vast territory. This is a stark contrast to the endemic intolerance levels in the Islamic world, where persecuting and slaughtering its own minorities (especially Christians) is rampant and growing. The only reason there are very few anti-Jewish hate crimes in places like Egypt, Syria and Iraq, is because these Muslim countries have already massacred and thrown out virtually all the indigenous Jews who had been living in those countries since before Islam even existed.
