Hate Crimes

2006 Hate crimes statistics for the United States:

Anti-Black 3,136
Anti-Jewish 1,027
Anti-White 1,008
Anti-Male Homosexual 881
Anti-Hispanic 770
Anti-Female Homosexual 192
Anti-Islamic 191

And keep in mind that CAIR and other organized Muslim groups have been urging Muslims right and left to complain of "hate crimes" at the slightest opportunity, and that, furthermore, there have been instances reported of such "hate crimes" being caused by would-be Muslim victims, or in some cases their non-Muslim sympathizers, themselves. Think, for example, of the "hate crime" of those posters put up at George Washington University, and attributed by a rush-to-judgment Administration to members of a campus conservative group, when it turned out that seven other students, intending to discredit a speech that was to be given as part of "Islamofascism Awareness Week," had made and put up the offending posters.

How many of those anti-Jewish, or anti-homosexual, "hate crimes," for example, were caused by Muslims? Not Muslims betraying the principles of Islam, but upholding them?

Let's construct, if we can, a similar list for all countries, Muslim and non-Muslim. How many Hindus in Bangladesh and Pakistan do you think have committed "hate crimes" against Muslims? One? None? And how many "hate crimes" have been committed by Christians against Muslims in Iraq, and Egypt, and Lebanon, and Algeria, and Indonesia? And how many threats and attacks, how many kidnappings of non-Muslim women, how many murders of non-Muslim men, how many attacks on churches and Christian schools, do you think have taken place, in Iraq, and Egypt, and Lebanon, and Algeria, and Pakistan and the Sudan and Indonesia and Turkey, and how many such attacks by Muslims on Hindus have taken place in Pakistan, and Bangladesh and even in India, and how many such attacks by Muslims on Buddhists, or Buddhist monuments and artifacts where there are no longer any Buddhists living, have taken place in Thailand, or in Afghanistan?

Someone good at marshalling statistics should provide a worldwide summary of "hate crimes" and publish them, with victims and perpetrators carefully identified, and keep that running count on the Internet where all can see.

I think we already know, at this site, what the result will be.

But let's make sure that everyone knows.
