LA County: Hate Crimes Drop, Jews Targeted More [88 percent...against Jewish targets]

A growing number of hate crimes — 24 percent — included white supremacy symbols, including swastikas. Jews were targeted in about half of these crimes, followed by blacks and Latinos.

“We see the same groups — African Americans, Jews, gays and lesbians, and Latinos — victimized most frequently year after year,” said Robin Toma, executive director of the Human Relations Commission.

The number of crimes, which dropped from 730 in 2008 to 580 last year, reflects one murder and two attempted murders, Toma said. It is the second lowest hate crime count in the past decade.

Hate crimes occurred across Los Angeles County, but the most were recorded in the San Fernando Valley, followed by the metro area. Accounting for population, the highest concentration was in the metro area, followed by the Antelope Valley, the commission determined.

Crimes targeting Armenians and transgender people rose, though only a handful of hate crimes against them were reported, according to the commission.

Religion-motivated crime grew by 9 percent, with most 88 percent of the crime directed at Jews and Jewish institutions, the report said.

In 2008, anti-Jewish hate crimes accounted for 10 percent of hate crimes, and comprised 65 percent of crimes targeting religious groups. This year, one out of five hate crimes reported in the county was against Jews, a 49 percent increase in anti-Jewish crime.

“While the overall decline in hate crimes is a good trend, we remain concerned about the high levels of hate crimes against Jewish institutions and individuals,” said Amanda Susskind, regional director of the Pacific Southwest Region of the Anti-Defamation League.

The largest number of incidents overall involved race, with hate crimes between blacks and Latinos remaining high, Toma said.

A majority of Latino gang members were suspects in 77 percent of anti-black crimes, and blacks were suspects in 48 percent of the anti-Latino crimes, the report stated.

Oh this is a BS report from the ADL who attacks Geert Wilders who is standing up against the Islamization of Europe. The ADL is a terrorist organization.

I wonder if “Jews are pigs” written in Arabic is a “White Supremacy Symbol?”

The leaders and intellectuals and radicals of the left in the 50’s through the 80’s were disproportionately secular Jews.

This changed as the next generation of the left avant garde are virulently anti Semitic (ironically even if they are of Jewish decent), anti Israel and sympathetic to the PLO, HAMAS, and other Islamic terror groups.

For example, in the mid 1990’s the self described Rabbi Michale Lerner, a 60 radical and close friend of the Clintons , tried to give a speech at Berkley. Lerner was reliable radical who never missed a chance to tear down or undermine the US or Israel.

Despite this, he was shouted off the stage and threatened with death simply because he was Jew. The guy was completely blindsided and shocked at his reception.

Jews are now the prime targets of the violence from the hard core left regardless of their political views. For a large segment of the modern radical left, Jews must be wiped off the face of the earth simply for being Jewish.

Look at what is happening with the mass transit buses in Seattle. Now there is a fine, but subtle, example of anti-Semitism at work.

It’s a war against principaities and powers in high places, a religious war against the true G!D or Abraham Isaac and Jacob brought to you by the possessed, the evil, the blood cult of Islam and all who are converging to force Jews and Christians out of this world altogether anyway they can. They hate our G!d,; we just happen to have flesh and blood to attack. So, attack back through prayer, through propaganda, through war until G!D Himself brings His justice to earth and rules with an iron rod!
