CAIRís Non-Existent "Muslim Backlash"
The Stiletto ^ | October 20, 2006 | The Other Cheek

Posted on 10/22/2006 6:09:19 PM PDT by theothercheek

On Wednesday, the FBI released a report detailing hate crimes that occurred in 2005. This report should drive a stake into the heart of incessant claims by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of an anti-Muslim backlash in the US since 9/11.

Of the 1,405 victims of an anti-religion hate crime, 69.5 percent were Jewish (848 incidents resulting in 900 offenses committed against 977 victims by 364 offenders). In comparison, 10.7 percent were Muslim (128 incidents resulting in 146 offenses committed against 151 victims by 89 offenders).

In its latest "anti-Muslim backlash" report – a very wide-margin and large type compilation of he-said-she-said anecdotes and local media coverage of press conferences at which allegations are made that almost never result in arrests, trials and convictions – CAIR claimed that it "processed" (whatever that means) 1,972 civil rights complaints in 2005, and received reports of 153 anti-Muslim hate crimes complaints.

While the FBI report corroborates CAIR’s claim of anti-Muslim hate crimes, it completely discredits claims that Muslims are being targeted by hate-filled infidels (that is to say, American Christians and Jews). The incontrovertible (and inconvenient) fact is that there were seven Jews for every Muslim who was the victim of a hate crime in the US.

The Stiletto checked CAIR’s Web site today and did not find any press releases decrying the anti-Jewish backlash that the FBI report so clearly establishes.

Oh. You mean the self-flaggelation and injuries to children on the occasion to mark Hussein's death? A beheading, perhaps?

Interesting source. Is it accurate?

Or, bringing in the events of 2001, there were 55,000 non-Moslems attacked by Moslems in New York City alone, and another 25,000 non-Moslems attacked by Moslems in Northern Virginia.

More Christians and Jews were subjected to attack by Moslems in that one year than the sum total of all individuals in all of American history ever attacked on account of religion.

Islam has a very bad record.

CAIR is a terrorist front group, run by terrorists for terrorists.

You know, just like the ACLU

A statistic I saw was from 2004. 3.9 million Jews and 1.6 million Muslims. Muslims had grown by 109% since 1990, while Jews declined by 9%, so I guess there are 2-1/2 Jews for every Muslim, but the ratio is changing quickly.

I gather Muslims are involved in many of these crime. But they are the perpetrators, not the victims.

..for that matter, how many Jews are there in the world? ...only 6 million in Israel? There don't seem to be that many. Are the Jews concerned about that? As a Gentile, I am.

Yes. Unfortunately, my HTML skills are not up to snuff and I am unable to include the links to background sources used/quoted imbedded in articles that I post here. So if you check out the www.thestilettoblog.com, you will be able to click on everything and judge for yourself.

If someone one day has the time to clue me in on how I can do this (all I know is simple tags like paragraph, bold and italics) then my posts will be much more useful to everyone!!!

You're not kidding! I am already late for work so I cannot fish these links out myself, but The Stiletto has an ax to grind when it comes to CAIR. If you search the site for "CAIR" you'll find at least four other articles that back up what you are saying.

I followed the link to the FBI report in the Stiletto post, and it did not have this information. But I bet the US Census Bureau has it. If I had to guess, I would venture that there are roughly equal numbers of Jews and Muslims in this country - about 6 million.

Oh - I didn't get to your post when I guessed the numbers of Jews and Muslims in the US. I think you're right, though, that by the most current census, the number of Muslims will have gone up a bit.

But you can't bring up 9/11, silly! That happened in a vacuum, don'tcha know? Never happened before and never will again.

Lot of it depends on how you count Moslems. Louis Farrakhan's group, for example, is not ordinarily thought of as really Moslem by the Sunni and Shi'ite groups.
