2015 Stats: “Islamophobic” incidents vastly trail attacks on Jewish and Christian faith in France

This is a Google translated version of an article appearing in La Croix, a Catholic news publication – The Interministerial Delegation against racism and anti-Semitism (Dilcra) Releases, Wednesday, January 20, figures for racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim committed in 2015.  Link

Vandalism against Christian sites increased 20% in 2015

Damage, fire, graffiti … The graves and places of worship are not spared. Christian sites in 2015 recorded an increase in violations of the order of 20%. They are numerically the most affected with 810 acts identified.

Muslim places recorded, themselves, an increase of 110% damage – almost all of them to the mosques, not cemeteries. In contrast we see the opposite phenomenon in the Jewish community: synagogues impairments fell by 46% last year, while the cemetery desecrations have doubled. The two are undoubtedly linked: Enhanced protection of places of worship probably bringing the perpetrators of such acts to “defer” Burial.

Anti-Muslim acts tripled ( Note that 3/4 of the “anti-muslim” incidents were “THREATS” and not actual incidents of violence or vandalism, so of the 429 instances 108 involved and act of violence or vandalism, the rest probably involved someone who looked at a Muslim funny. Meanwhile acts of violence/vandalism against Christian sites were 8 times those against Mohammedan sites, albeit in a more target rich environment)

…an increase of 223% between 2014 and 2015, acts to the Muslim community are mounted to 429 last year. In three quarters of cases, these threats and not of actions (violence, vandalism, etc.)

178 of them were registered for the month of January 2015, in the wake of the attacks of Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Hide. The authorities did not find a similar phenomenon after the attacks of November 13.

Anti-semitic Acts show a slight decrease.

There is a slight decrease (- 5%) of anti-Semitic acts in 2015. This decrease, however, needs to be contextualized. Because they remain, by far the most numerous (806 acts). Moreover, this decrease is very relative since it follows a worrying increase (+ 101%) in 2014, especially after the ban on performances of Dieudonné.

    Islamoactive aggression in all cases, to be sure.

    There will forever be zero Islamophobic incidents for there is no such thing as Islamophobia.

    • Exactly. Where is that mental disorder listed in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)? And more importantly where is “Islamophobia” in the criminal code? It’s a perceived “thought crime” nothing more. And in a society where we have things such as “micro-aggressions” there’s no hope ever for an objective measure.

      What’s next, nano-aggressions? How about aggressions at the sub-atomic particle level? I read George Orwell when I was kid — I never foresaw that some day I would have to argue against an ideology that resembles that of the tyrannical society he once described. In Canada.

    Lets understand that all the attacks by muslims to jews and Christians are not always reported because of the Police failing to see them as a Hate-Crime which we know is seen as trivial and a common assault .
    In Montreal a Jewish school was torched by Arab( non-christian) immigrants along with a Video showing two muslism beating up a Jewish teen outside his Community Centre for Jews.
    Both cases went to Court but the Police would NOT call them a hate-crime which restricted the Judge for when Sentence they could mete out.

    Islamic org’s also attack those filing complaints about muslim criminals where the person is called an islamophobe or racist on top of racial profiling to assume the person is a muslim.
    The media also makes the problem worse by reporting even the fabricated attacks on Mosques and muslims as proven in a Court Room .
    The alleged Pepper Spray story from Vancouver where Justin jumped it to condemn it is now falling apart and no longer in the media since the Police have ZERO to go by other than vague statement from people that didn’t actually see anything .

    The Peterborough Mosque Fire-bombing allegations is also falling apart and may now be a Fraud case to accept $200,000.00 from the community donations when it was Covered by Insurance .

    • Wow, do you have a link for that (fraud case)? I don’t dispute it in principle — makes sense. Especially since insurance investigators are some of the best around. Did they actually make a claim? And if not, why not? Why accept donations instead? To placate the “poor victims” narrative of JT?
