How ‘race’ determines the news we get — and don’t get, Part 3 by Peter Burrows, 2/24/20. email@example.com – silvercityburro.com
Anti-Semitic incidents are on the rise all over the country, not just in New York City, which was the subject of Parts 1 and 2. As far as the media is concerned, this is page two news unless committed by “white supremacists,” then it’s front page in the New York Times and the lead story on CNN.
I’m afraid it’s going to get worse for America’s Jews, and to see why, let’s first look at a survey done by the Anti-Defamation League, ADL. The most recent one that I can find that has a racial breakdown of anti-Semitism in America is from 2016, which found about 15 percent of American adults hold deeply anti-Semitic views, a figure essentially unchanged from polls conducted since 2005.
Also unchanged were consistently higher levels of anti-Semitism among African-Americans, 23 percent. Most African-Americans are Democrats. Most Hispanics are also Democrats, and they, too, show higher levels of anti-Semitism; 19 percent among Hispanics born in America, but an alarming 31 percent in Hispanics born outside of America. Democrats want open borders, which would mean more foreign-born Hispanics and more anti-Semitism.
The 2016 ADL survey concludes, slightly edited: “Hispanics, 15 percent of the adult population, combined with African Americans, 12 percent, comprise 27 percent of the American population, a number sure to grow in the coming years. This population increase of the most anti-Semitic cohorts means that it will be an ongoing challenge to reduce overall anti-Semitic propensities.”
Since there are 90 million blacks and Hispanics in America and only 8 million Jews, it’s not surprising that no leading Democrat has specifically condemned blacks or Hispanics for their “anti-Semitic propensities.” If those were Republican constituencies, you can bet your bippy the media would be screaming for Trump to do so.
A very important “anti-Semitic cohort” not mentioned in the ADL survey were Muslim Americans, most of whom are also Democrats, e.g. Ilan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Andre Carson, the only Muslims in the House of Representatives, are all Democrats. Since Muslims are only about 1% of the U.S. population, perhaps the ADL didn’t think they could get a meaningful result.
For that, let’s look at a 2019 ADL survey on anti-Semitism in Belgium, Spain, Germany, France, Italy and The United Kingdom. Muslim populations were below 5% of the total population in only two, Spain (2.6%) and Italy (4.8%), and above 6% in the rest, the highest being France at 8% and Belgium at 7.6%.
ADL found that levels of “extreme anti-Semitism” among Muslims were at least twice the level of non-Muslims in every country but Spain, where it was still pronounced at 46% Muslims, 28% non-Muslims. The largest difference was in the UK, where Muslim anti-Semitism was 54% vs. 11% non-Muslims, the latter number is in-line with ADL results for “white” Americans. The lowest level of Muslim anti-Semitism was ‘only’ 43% in Italy (vs. 18% non-Muslims in Italy.)
All are significantly above U.S. levels of anti-Semitism, where the highest is among foreign-born Hispanics at a relatively benign 31%. What this means is that as the Muslim population grows in America, we can expect anti-Semitic hate crimes to increase, as they have in Europe.
Dr. Guy Millière, a professor at the University of Paris who has written extensively on France and Europe, recently wrote: “In Europe, virtually all recent anti-Semitic attacks, threats and murders of Jews have, sadly, been carried out by Muslims.”
Why? Although Islam is doctrinally both anti-Christian and ant-Judaic, Allah has a special dislike for Jews, who have incurred Allah’s “anger,” while Christians have merely gone “astray.” That is from the first chapter of the Koran. The next chapter, chapter two, starts by telling us, “This is the Book of Allah, there is no doubt in it.”
The Koran, which is divinely DICTATED, not divinely inspired, leaves “no doubt” that Muslims must war against both Jews and Christians, “the worst of creatures,” until they are “utterly subdued,” but Jews are the worst of the worst. As Verse 5:82 says, Jews are the most “hostile” people toward Muslims, Christians the least.
There are many, many verses in the Koran disparaging Jews, no doubt because they emphatically rejected Muhammad and his self-proclaimed prophecy. Some verses hint that Jews even ridiculed Muhammad in his early days at Medina, an offense he later repaid by massacring the three Jewish tribes in the area. (See the Sayyid Mawdudi translation, footnotes to Verses 2:104, 2:106, and 2:108.)
Thus, anti-Semitism is baked into the Islamic cake. While there are currently about 3.5 million Muslims in America, Pew estimates Muslims will grow to over 8 million by 2050, which will slightly surpass the Jewish population at that time.
My question is: Why should we allow that to happen? America’s Jews must not be exposed to Islamic hatred, and neither should the rest of us. If the media were to report on the daily atrocities being committed by Muslims in the name of Islam, public opinion would quickly demand a halt to Muslim immigration.
If you wish to see the news that the media doesn’t report on Islam and Muslims, the number one site I would recommend is The Religion of Peace website: https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/
This ironically named site reports from around the world and it updates on a daily basis the number of deadly jihad arracks since America’s 9/11 tragedy (36,448+ as of 2/23/20.) Other sites that regularly report on Islamic atrocities not covered by the media are by The Gatestone Institute, The Geller Report, The IPT Report, and Jihad Watch. There are others, but the Religion of Peace site is really all you need.
The failure of the mainstream media to cover Muslim atrocities is probably due to the asinine belief that Islam is a race, and that to criticize Muslims is therefore racist. This is the sort of political correctness that has deadly consequences. It’s time we put a stop to it, and as I have recommended before, the best way to expose Islam is to quote the Koran. What is difficult about that?
