A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Islamophobia

Posted by Godefroi on November 20, 2007

It’s on the rise, you know. Rampant, some might say. Thousands of incidents every year and increasing since 9/11.

Right?

From the FBI files we have the numbers. (Nod: Jihad Watch)

There you have it…191 Islamophobic offenses in 2006, with 208 victims.

I have no compunction in condemning the behavior of those who perpetrated these actions. I do have an addendum, however.

There are about 6 million Jews in the U.S, and between 5 and 7 million Muslims (so, roughly the same). Looks like Judeophobia is more prevalent. Jews have been the victim of 5.5 times more often than Muslims. From another angle, a Jew is more than 5 times more likely to be a victim of a hate crime than a Muslim…and ⅔ (66%) of ALL religion-inspired hate crimes are directed at Jews, even though they are 1/50 (2%) of the population.

What about the racism charges spewed by CAIR? (Note: Asian here would include the Middle East…it also includes Pacific Islanders, a correlation dreamed up by the Educational system to hide the preponderance of success in American schools by Japanese and Korean children. Islam is not a race.)

Hmmm…obviously it’s a lot more dangerous to be Black than Asian.

Well, perhaps the conspiracy is only shown by racism against Brown people like myself.

So…what’s CAIR crying about?
