FBI Stats Again Belie Islamophobia Myth – Jonathan S. Tobin (Commentary)

(Daily Alert)

    According to the FBI report on hate crimes for 2012, Jews remain the No. 1 target of hate crimes in America and no other group comes even close.

    Of the 1,340 incidents of anti-religious hate crimes reported, 674 or 62% were anti-Jewish in nature.

    Only 130 incidents or 12% involved Muslim victims.

    While there is a consensus in the media that American Muslims have been under siege since the 9/11 attacks, in virtually every year, the number of anti-Semitic incidents is a multiple of those involving Muslims.

    Yet no reasonable person claims that Jews are under siege in America.
