H-A-T-E in the U.S.A.

Loretta Lynch's angst re surging "Islamophobia" notwithstanding, Jews win (i.e. lose) the hate sweepstakes again:
According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports: Hate Crime Statistics, 2014, there were 1,140 victims of anti-religious hate crimes in the U.S. in 2014. “Of the 1,140 victims of anti-religious hate crimes: 56.8 percent [56.8%] were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-Jewish bias.” That amounts to approximately 647.52 instances where Jewish individuals, businesses or institutions were targeted.
A mere “16.1 percent [16.1%] were victims of anti-Islamic (Muslim) bias,” amounting to approximately 183.54 instances where Muslim individuals, businesses or institutions were targeted.
Something these stats never address: what percentage of anti-Jewish hate crimes are perpetrated by Muslims?

Barry? Loretta? Either of you want to field that one?

I've wondered the same thing, regarding the role that Moslems play in anti-Semitic hate crimes. The other, very politically incorrect suspicion I have regarding who commits them is that blacks (and I don't mean just Black Muslims) are disproportionately perpetrators of anti-Semitic attacks. Hasids in Brooklyn, for example, are often targeted by blacks for attacks that are both racist and anti-Semitic. (I guess that is a two-fer from the attackers' point of view.) The Crown Heights Riot of 1991 was nothing less than a pogrom-cum-anti-white-race-riot, conducted by black New Yorkers against the Crown Heights Hasidic and Orthodox Jewish populations.

One of the big problems with the "victimhood" narrative is that it doesn't leave any room for the victims to be victimizers; for the hated to be hateful. In fact, leftist dogma holds that if blacks and Muslims harbor hate they are not to be held responsible for it, being "victims" themselves.
