Is that all?

UK Metropolitan Police Service “Islamophobia” and “Hate Crime” Figures for the 12 month period ending February 2014 show they are up about 60%. Keep in mind, in the UK, calling someone a “raghead” constitutes a hate crime. So, where is the chart about Muslim hate crimes against non-Muslims?

These are the latest stats of the Metropolitan Police Service’s hate crime figures to February 2014. A comparison of Islamophobic hate crimes from February 2013 to February 2014 in the respective boroughs, (and reported to the MET), show a 60% increase. This may well be due to the anti-Muslim backlash after the murder of Lee Rigby and the corresponding months where hate crime numbers slowly started to fall from the high peaks of June to September 2013.
