Islamic supremacist groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations(CAIR) want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they’re the currency they use to buy power and influence in our victimhood-oriented society, and to deflect attention away from jihad terror and onto Muslims as putative victims. Hamas-linked CAIR, designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates, and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. Most notably, in February, a New Jersey Muslim was found guilty of murder that he tried to portray as an “Islamophobic” attack, and in 2014 in California, a Muslim was found guilty of killing his wife, after first blaming her murder on “Islamophobia.”
All that casts into doubt all the claims of victimhood in this article. Given the track record of Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims in the U.S., authorities should first investigate whether or not Muslims themselves issued these threats.
Also, no threats or violence against innocent people are ever justified, so where is Hamas-linked CAIR on Muslim persecution of Christians worldwide? The Muslims in this article say they’ve been threatened, while Muslims in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere are killing Christians, driving them from their homes, enslaving them, and more. Whence this moral myopia of the mainstream media?
“US Muslims face backlash after Paris attacks,” by Dave Collins, Associated Press, November 18, 2015 (thanks to all who sent this in):
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Muslims around the U.S. are facing backlash following the deadly attacks in Paris, including vandalism to mosques and Islamic centers, hate-filled phone and online messages and threats of violence.
Advocacy leaders say they have come to expect some anti-Muslim sentiment following such attacks, but they now see a spike that seems notable, stirred by anti-Muslim sentiment in the media.
“The picture is getting increasingly bleak,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the [Hamas-linked — ed.] Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. “There’s been an accumulation of anti-Islamic rhetoric in our lives and that I think has triggered these overt acts of violence and vandalism.”
Hooper wants to silence all criticism of Islam, in accord with Sharia blasphemy laws, and thus allow the jihad to advance unimpeded and unopposed. To sell this poisonous snake oil, he falsely claims that “anti-Islamic rhetoric,” by which he means any opposition to jihad terror, is leading to violence against Muslims.
He said the rise in the level of anti-Muslim sentiment is reflected by some GOP presidential candidates, governors and others speaking out in opposition to the U.S. accepting more Syrian refugees.
Hooper said the council is seeing an increase in anti-Muslim incidents since Friday’s attacks in Paris that killed 129 people and wounded more than 350.
