Hate crimes against Muslims are 10 percent lower than blacks, 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals, and 59 percent lower than Jews. Keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim victimhood.

‘ From 2002 to 2011, Muslims are estimated to have suffered hate crimes at a frequency of 6.0 incidents per 100,000 per year – 10 percent lower than blacks (6.7), 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals (11.5), and 59 percent lower than Jews (14.8). Americans should keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim victimhood.’
By the FBI’s count, 74 people were killed in hate crimes (“murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” in Table 4) from 2002 to 2011, but not a single one in an anti-Muslim incident. Indeed, the FBI lists no anti-Muslim fatalities since 1995, corresponding to the earliest report available.

'Why do Islamists obfuscate? The false picture of an epidemic of physical assaults on Muslims distracts Americans from Islamist hatred and enshrines Muslims as the country’s leading victim class, a strategy intended to intimidate citizens into remaining quiet about Islamic supremacism and lay the groundwork for granting Muslims special privileges and protections at the expense of others. In short, anti-Muslim hate crimes are a powerful Islamist weapon.'

And here is the link for the FBI Statistics report on all hate crimes for 2011 (the latest now available):

The explanation as to why Islamists, like CAIR and all the other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, are so loud and lie so big about their numbers and their victimhood that this article gives is spot on!

The more the appeasers in the media believe the 'oh poor Musllim' propaganda, the more they feel they need to silence all criticism of them while they go unopposed in their agenda to 'destroy western civilization' as the Muslim Brotherhood's agenda states clearly.

Excellent! Thanks. This proves the lie to the Daily Causes main page piece a couple of weeks ago that tried to convince us all the Muslims are being knocked off right and left, when the truth is just the opposite..

It's interesting to note that the media and leaders of society and government and religion treated Hitler and the rising Nazis with the same blind appeasement until it was almost too late. We need another Churchill now.

True Carola. In fact, as the article points out, no Muslim has died as a result of any hate crime:

' By the FBI’s count, 74 people were killed in hate crimes (“murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” in Table 4) from 2002 to 2011, but not a single one in an anti-Muslim incident. Indeed, the FBI lists no anti-Muslim fatalities since 1995, corresponding to the earliest report available.'

Although this was not a surprise, the statistics were very interesting to read. The way Muslims are literally pushing their culture down our throats, these figures will slowly begin to rise.. All its going to take is one ticked skin head.

There are a couple of contrary claims which are pretty tough to disprove. A lot of these guys say that hate-crimes against Muslims are under-reported because Muslims do not trust the police. Others look at the type of crime, and point out in particular that while intimidation and vandalism are far more common against Jews, proportionally Muslims get assaulted as a hate-crime more often (and those numbers are supported by the FBI, at least in 2011).
http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/hate-crime/2011/tables/table-4

On the other hand, the institutional bigotry which they regularly claim generally either does not exist or is pointed the other way. Also, I have a sneaking suspicion the classification of crimes as hate-crimes may be skewed to overstate anti-Islamic bigotry, or at least understate hate-crimes committed by Muslims against other groups. For example, I don't think terrorist acts are generally included in those reports.

This part is the heart of the issue:

'Why do Islamists obfuscate? The false picture of an epidemic of physical assaults on Muslims distracts Americans from Islamist hatred and enshrines Muslims as the country’s leading victim class, a strategy intended to intimidate citizens into remaining quiet about Islamic supremacism and lay the groundwork for granting Muslims special privileges and protections at the expense of others. In short, anti-Muslim hate crimes are a powerful Islamist weapon.'

Muslims create a boogyman and so scare non-Muslims and cause them to act out of fear of something not real. However, there is something real to be feared, but it isn't the boogyman, it is the one creating the boogyman.

Dr. Bill Warner, of "Political Islam" fame once said that he admired Islamic warfare, because there was NOTHING Muslims won't do in fighting a war, especially that against non-Muslims, including the most base and outlandish propaganda and lies.

It would seem, from everything I've read over these past few years, and now this piece, that Dr. Warner is quite correct. The authors of this article ask:

"Why do Islamists obfuscate? The false picture of an epidemic of physical assaults on Muslims distracts Americans from Islamist hatred and enshrines Muslims as the country’s leading victim class, a strategy intended to intimidate citizens into remaining quiet about Islamic supremacism and lay the groundwork for granting Muslims special privileges and protections at the expense of others. In short, anti-Muslim hate crimes are a powerful Islamist weapon.

At its extreme, the desire to achieve victim status in this manner has fueled the phenomenon of fake hate crimes, through staging, blatant misrepresentation, or both. An illustrative example is the March 2012 murder of Shaima Alawadi, a hijab-wearing California woman found beaten to death at home with a note calling her a terrorist beside her body. Islamists and their credulous media allies pounced at the opportunity to condemn the supposed tidal wave of “Islamophobia,” even as marital problems emerged as a potential motive. In November, police arrested Alawadi’s husband."

I would also proffer that not only "fake crimes" against Muslims (those done by Muslims to make them appear to be victims) are thrown in to inflate purported "anti-Muslim" crimes, but in addition, since there are honor killings imported into the U.S. along with the Muslims who commit them -- Muslims that kill other Muslims are almost always family members -- that likely a significant amount of "hate crimes" against Muslims are committed by Muslims, themselves.

Look at the world at large, and most of the victims of Islamic violence are Muslims in Islamic countries and elsewhere. They just seem to be unable to function without violence, as their great "prophet" to be emulated also was.

Thanks, Rob and Jay.

Great article, Rob and J.

This news comes as expected. I would be shocked, given Muslims' habitual dissembling, if the results of this study were anything else, including their inflated population figures.

@ Beth
you raise the question
Quote..."Why do Islamists obfuscate?...Unquote

You must look at whom they worship-- sura 3:54 "Allah describes himself as Khayrul-Makereen"
"Allah is the greatest of all deceivers."
In sura 7:99 "Did they then feel secure against the Plan of Allâh. None feels secure from the
Plan of Allâh except the people who are the losers"
and follow up with Abu Bakr ststement that though promised paradise by Allah and his apostle, while weeping says, "By Allah! I would not feel safe from the deception of Allah, even if I had one foot in paradise."

Waow-- alla lets you set one foot in paradise and you don't know if you are getting in or being tortured

and also
Allah's Apostle said, "Who is willing to kill Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His Apostle?" Thereupon Muhammad bin Maslama got up saying, "O Allah's Apostle! Would you like that I kill him?" The Prophet said, "Yes," Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say a (false) thing (i.e. to deceive Kab). "The Prophet said, "You may say it."

both alla and his messenger used lies to achieve their selfish desires which begs the question -- are they one --
a query raised by the messengers wife in response to sura 33:51 which states
You may defer the turn of any of your wives you like, and may take any other you desire.
Aisha knew the conman too well because she replied
"I feel that your Lord hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires."

Notice-- "Your Lord" not our Lord


Beth I hope this may give some clue as to why there is obfuscation (lies) in islam --- it is sanctioned from the top down

Stephen B, if you read the article it makes it very clear that the per capita hate crimes against groups are rated compared to their numbers, so crimes against Muslims are lower proportionally than those against Jews, gays and blacks. And as for their fear of the police maybe making them report crimes, no one can fear the police more than gays and blacks with the long of history of abuse of these two groups by the police. That doesn't wash at all. And you make a good point - how many of the hate crimes against gays, which Mohammed commanded by killed, and Jews, which Allah told Muslims must all be killed before their day of resurrection could come, are committed by Muslims, as they are here in many parts of Europe.

Good comments everyone. And Amen to your comment Berny P.

Hi Rob and Jay :)

In raw numbers, the assaults against Muslims and Jews are very similar, 15 aggravated and 43 simple against Jews, and 14 aggravated and 41 simple against Muslims. Jews constitute 2.1% of the U.S. population while Muslims are 0.8%. Per person, by those numbers, Muslims appear to be at greater risk of assault. The total numbers are dominated by apparently lesser crimes, intimidation (187 and 70), and vandalism (549 and 30). However, I think intimidation is only criminal when there is reason to expect some form of assault, so if we consider those to be prevented assaults, the disparity in assault-rates pretty much disappears, leaving Muslims tied for "most assaulted individually counted religion", but with relatively safe property.

Stephen B: from the article: the number of 'hate crimes' per 100,000 of each group shows clearly that Muslims have fewer than blacks, gays or Jews (less than 1/2 as many for Jews!). Why aren't the media making a big deal out of the last three groups? Only Muslims, as usual, get the victim headlines they work so hard to attain. Victimhood brings Muslims more attention and sympathy and less scrutiny for what the Muslim Bro. fronts groups are really up to daily - subversion. People need to wake up. Let's have a little more concern for those who are much more victimized than Muslims.

‘ From 2002 to 2011, Muslims are estimated to have suffered hate crimes at a frequency of 6.0 incidents per 100,000 per year – 10 percent lower than blacks (6.7), 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals (11.5), and 59 percent lower than Jews (14.8). Americans should keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim victimhood.’

Gays have twice as many hate crimes against them per 100,000 than Muslims do, and Jews win the top prize with 2 1/2 times more against them than Muslims. So why is it that only hate crimes against Muslims garners the most headlines? Even Care2 had an article about the growing hate crimes against Muslims just 2 or 3 weeks ago - a total fabrication, and no mention of those who are targeted more. Why?

One answer could be that the Saudis have been buying up large shares in western news media - which we think should be illegal. No foreigners should be able to own something so important to a country. They won't allow anything about Islam or Muslims that doesn't paint the phony picture they work so hard to paint despite all evidence to the contrary.

Notice to all those that contribute their comments to these insightful articles that are posted on Islamic issues, accept for Pam W, who should realize that we are compassionate people and can handle any insults directed towards our belief. We are not like muslims that would have flagged your @ss right off of this site. We do not possess Gang Mentality which brings me to what I am about to say, "If any muslim came upon these pages and some of your comments, he would be back with his/hers brotherhoods friends and Flag all what you have to say and as I know, it only takes three Flags to get an automated suspension and no human intervention to see if you were justly Flagged. You are Guilty of breaking the Terms & Agreements of C2! You are Guilty of breaking all the Rules of Conduct in the Community Guidelines.

No further comment is necessary for those that understand Islam!

Yes I agree with the postings here that Muslims do exaggerate their victim-hood. I would like to see what the stats are for hate-crime against others committed by Muslims.

One has to wonder how many hate crimes are committed by Muslims against others and other Muslim groups ie: Sunnis vs Shiites.

Hi Rob and Jay :)

My comment does not actually contradict anything you or the article said. I just meant that we should also consider the types and severity of crimes committed before talking about precisely how overblown any group's fear of bigotry is. The rate of hate-driven assaults against Muslims is disproportionately high, as far as religiously motivated hate-crimes in the U.S. go, according to FBI records. Still, the claims of bigotry are overblown because organizations have realized how effective claims of victim-hood are politically. The really worrisome part of exaggerated claims of victim-hood is that those get used as recruitment-tools by anti-Western groups and militias. Exaggerations of tensions may be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

so we think of poor, sensitive, thin-skinned mohammedans as the under dog. and as an oppressed minority status all their whineyness gets them they get a pass on some really heinous stuff.

i'm not talking terrorists or extremists blowing up stuff. i'm talking a dad whose daughter is stolen as reparations for an offense by her brother and he objects ONLY cause she was already engaged to her cousin at age 10, not cause she was taken as a slave. or moms who hold their daughters down to get their genitals carved up by a razor because allah (pig-lard be upon it) wills it. or girls who can't go to school at all or go anywhere unveiled or it's a face full of acid for them. or grown women forbidden to drive, vote, show anything but their eyeballs, or go anywhere without their male handler's permission (now there's even e-alerts for this!). or girls killed in various ways by a brother, a father, an uncle, for being "too western" or talking to a boy or being forcibly raped (including right here in north america). these acts are all supposed to be tolerated. if you don't tolerate it youre an mohammedanophobic hater bully. we're supposed to respect these beliefs that these acts aren't only ok but are literally encouraged by mohammedanism/ the koran.

and watch out if an infidel threatens to so much as dog ear a koran page, but they themselves burn 'em every time they riot over it and homes and shops get burnt, and they even throw 'em in sewers full of poop in pakistan. hypocrites!

fine. if standing up for rights of muslim women and girls to not to be killed or mutilated or forced to child marriage at the whim of muslim men makes me a mohammedanophobic hater bully, i can live with the label. like most civilized and educated humans i'm alot thicker-skinned than a mohammedan.
