Muslim Brotherhood front, Hamas funder CAIR tries to club non-Muslims over the head with this non-existent "backlash" and "hate crimes against Muslims" propaganda.
The Muslim cabdriver was slashed by a mosque worker and fierce supporter of the Ground Zero mosque. He worked for Cordoba/Park 51. Who can say who, if anyone, put him up to it? CAIR's offices are right next door to the Cordoba Conquest Initiative/ASMA offices on Riverside drive. I hope the police are investigating -- or will CAIR demand they take more "sensitivity training"?
All of this Goebbels-style propaganda (the Nazis played the victim card too) is, in fact, to gin up their significant fringe elements (of which their are millions) to hurt, attack, those fighting the forces of Islamic supremacism and stealth jihad.
Americans are getting wise and they are sick of it.
What is a fact, is that antisemitism is at the highest levels not seen since World War II. Thanks in large part to virulent Islamic Jew-hatred.
Check this out from the Bee, a notoriously pro-CAIR newspaper. So you know the facts are overwhelming.
FBI data: Hate crimes against Muslims rare Sacramento Bee
Numbers have declined over recent years
Jews, lesbians, gay men and Caucasians, among others, are all more frequently the target of hate crimes, FBI records show. Reported anti-Muslim crimes have declined over recent years, though they still exceed what occurred prior to the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
In 2008, 105 hate crime incidents against Muslims were reported nationwide. There were 10 times as many incidents that were recorded as anti-Jewish during the same year, the most recent for which figures are available.
Lodi resident David Halla, for instance, was arrested Monday and charged with assaulting a 76-year-old charter bus passenger while en route from Modesto to Chukchansi Gold Resort-Casino. This could count as a hate crime, as witnesses say Halla was shouting racial epithets at the Spanish- speaking victim.
By itself, hate is not a crime.
Congress, though, has specified that a criminal act becomes a hate crime when it is "motivated in whole or in part by an offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation." Stiffer penalties can result.
