Did you know in the 43 days from November 13 to December 24th there were 42 Anti Semitic attacks in the US? I sure didn’t as the elder notes:
No one supports anti-Muslim hate crimes. But what was a spectacularly bad month for American Muslims, with 38 attacks since Paris, is lower that an average month for American Jews.
Now if these things had happened to Muslims it would be front page news, stories would be on CNN and people would be talking about the unfair backlash over the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino.
I’m just wondering what attacks the targeting of Jews is over?
Oh one other thing…
There is a more subtle kind of bigotry at work, too. Most of the people who were attacked for being Jewish wore identifiable Jewish clothing, meaning that they are religious. But while the media is going out of its way to mention how terrible it is when identifiable Muslims are being attacked, there seems to be an idea that religious Jews are not “normal” Jews and the normal ones who are not easily distinguished from any other American are in no danger, only the fanatics who insist on wearing kippot or black hats or visible tzitzit or payos.
A Muslim woman who wants to wear a hijab must be protected but a Jewish man who wants to wear a long black coat is not someone the media wants its readers to identify with. If he gets punched, it’s sort of natural.
Personally I think the reluctance to talk about it also comes down to who is doing the attacking although it might be Islamophobia phobia.
On the bright side we’re doing better than England:
There has been a 61 percent increase in anti-Semitic crime in Britain in the last year, according to the statistics released by the Met Police on Thursday and published by the Jewish News Online website.
A total of 483 anti-Semitic crimes were committed up until November 2015, increasing from 299 crimes from November 2014.
If you are surprised that this carries no weight with the liberal media, then you haven’t been paying attention to liberals over the last 10 years.
