Obama’s predictably tedious speech the other night indulged in moral preening and all but accused the American people of reverting to their racist DNA. Indeed, Obama’s main concern seemed to be that Americans would target innocent American Muslims for persecution.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that her “greatest fear” is not Islamic terrorism but Islamophobia.
This dreaded anti-Muslim backlash, which has never taken place, is nothing but a liberal delusion.
In fact, religious-based crimes in America are overwhelmingly committed by Muslims against — you guessed it — Jews.
As John Hinderaker writes:
The FBI’s latest statistics, for 2014, show a total of 1,140 religion-based hate crimes in the U.S. Only 16% (182) were directed against Muslims, about one for every 44,000 Muslims living in the U.S.
Actually, Muslims are more likely to perpetrate hate crimes than to be victimized by them. In 2014, more than half of the religion-based hate crimes–58%–were directed against Jews, and in many instances were perpetrated by Muslims.
Thus Obama and the postmodern Democrat party not only deny the obvious connection between Islam and terrorism, but also seek to position Muslims as tragic victims… when the actual victims of Muslim Jew-hatred are Jews.
