Analysis of Overblown Headline
Are these sensational headlines aimed at intimidating persons opposed to Muslims being imported and dropped on the States? The purpose of this article is to alert Christians to the propaganda war we are in and to illustrate how public institutions try to silence us.

On 11/22/16 this headline  appeared in many media outlets: "Anti-Muslim attacks last year reached 9/11 era level."

That sounds like really big news about 2015.   Actually, in a country of over 380 million people that has been terrorized by mass murders committed by Muslims in San Bernardino and Tampa plus lingering memories of Muslims killing Marines in Tennessee and Army personnel at Ft. Hood, one might expect many incidents against Muslims. So how many "Anti-Muslim attacks" in 2015 provoked that sensational headline?

According to the FBI there were 91 simple and aggrevated assults attributed to anti-Muslim bias in 2015. There was no breakdown given between simple and aggrevated assults. A simple assult , usually charged as a misdemeanor, is the least serious form of assault. It involves minor injury or a limited threat of violence. In States where assault is a physical attack, pushing someone or slapping someone in an argument are instances of simple assault. Where the law defines assault as threatening behavior that puts another in fear, threatening to punch someone would be a simple assault.  It also refers to causing the individual to be in fear or apprehension of an imminent battery. The crime does not involve physical contact with the victim. With that data, who can say that anti-Muslim violence is growing faster than Muslim violence against the rest of America?


While assults on whites by thugs of color are so numerous that they aren't news, the big play given to alleged anti-Muslim hate crimes is another example of anti-white bias in media. Authorities are quick to attribute "bias" to crimes between people if the victim is a non-white or a non-Christian unless the perpetrator is non-white or non-Christian.  The mass murder at Ft. Hood, for example, was classified as "workplace violence" rather than a bias crime against all evidence that the killer was a radicalized Muslim.

The biggest crime of 2015 involving Muslims was a murder in North Carolinia on February 10th. A white, twice-divorced,unemployed, 46-year old student and self-decribed atheist named Hicks shot three  students in his apartment complex following a parking dispute.  It was a long-running dispute based on the fact that the three students were parking in their one assigned space and two visitors spaces on a regular basis. They had received several face-to-face complaints from their killer at least once a month in the time prior to the killing but they apparently ignored them. The Chapel Hill Police Department stated that their "preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking."

Under the circumstances, that incident appeared to have nothing to do with the fact that the students were American Muslims. However, by February 13th U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said that civil-rights lawyers in the U.S. Department of Justice have opened an investigation to determine if this was a hate crime. Holder stated that: "Like all Americans, I was shocked and saddened by this week’s heinous murders of three young people in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  I have made available the full resources of the Justice Department to help ensure that justice will be served in this case." By February 13, over a hundred Muslim advocacy groups had called for such a federal investigation, saying that the shootings "come in the wake of a disturbing rise in especially threatening and vitriolic anti-Muslim rhetoric and activities".
Obama immediately issued his usual loose talk before the facts are known: "No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship." Muslims held well-publiciced by the media events in Dupont Circle in DC and outside the White House featuring placards proclaiming "End Hate Speech" and "End Hate Crimes"
At the end of December 2015 police were still calling the motive a "parking dispute." It is the families of the victims and Muslim organizations who are calling it an anti-Muslim crimes with no evidence.
