Why does the left care more about Islamophobia than anti-Semitism?

Why do leftists care more about Muslims than they do about Jews? If that sounds confrontational, consider this: this week, the Met Police released the latest hate-crime figures for London. They show that offences against Jews have risen by 93% over the past year, while offences against Muslims have risen by 70%. And guess which story the BBC, Guardian and Independent, those voices of the British liberal conscience, have chosen to flag up? Yep, the 70% hike in Islamophobic attacks, not the nearly 100% hike in anti-Semitic offences.

    Because they are anti-Semitic

    • Hmmm, could be!

      Britain has always been anti-Semitic. And now that chav culture predominates, they are particularly virulent when it comes to Jewish people.

      Britain – it’ll make a nice theme park after the neutron bombs get rid of the tiresome “British human” element.

    The left has made a pact with Islamist’s and have thrown Jews and Israel under the bus. For example there is a direct correlation between governments and nations that have recognized an independent Palestinian State and a large influx of Islamic terrorist in their nation due to the fact that they have essentially told Islamist from around the world they are welcome into their nation only to eventually destroy it i.e. Sweden, Britain. When a country is pro Israel they recognize the potential threat that Islamic terrorism will bring and it is far more likely to take measures to prevent it from occurring in that country. God forbid that Justin Trudeau or even Thomas Mulcair become Prime Minister of Canada because if they do they will eagerly recognize a Palestinian State and reinstate relations with Iran while giving Israel the cold shoulder at the determinant to Canadian security.

      Mulcair’s wife is Jewish, hence his sons are Jewish. That is how it works. When a Mulcair son gets nailed by Islamists, Tommy Two Passports might change his tune. Anyone want to start the fundraiser to hire the jihadi to do the deed?

    Think they’ll be saying that in 10 years?
    Think they’ll be able to say that in 10 years?

    Europe is toast.

    Because they love muslims and hate jews?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Pretty much.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    1. Muslims outnumber Jews 100-to-1
    2. Muslims resort to violence to get their way

    1 + 2 = The Left is afraid of Muslims. (Not that they would ever admit as much.)

    Why do we keep asking the same stupid questions? Why does the left do any of the things they do? It’s because they hate everything we belive in, they hate Christianity, they hate capitalism, they hate families, and if we’re friends with the Jews, they’ll hate the Jews too. They hate everything we’ve accomplished and built. How else do you explain why everything the left does is geared to undermining us economically, militarily and socially?

    But mostly they hate normal people. They hate normal people because they think we’re stupid for disagreeing with their plans to destroy ourselves. Nothing means more to the left than their feelings of superiority over us. Get over it and hate them back.

      Millie, I have always had a problem dealing with that emotion, and managed it well in the past. These days, however, I have learned to hate with VERVE and PANACHE. I never knew that embracing the emotion could be so energizing, but it is.

      For example, I hate George Soros so much that, at my age, I would gladly put a bullet through his head, stand trial, and go to prison. And I would feel GOOD about what I did. Really, really GOOD. Add Al Gore to that list, every nameable muslim leader, David Suzuki etc. I am sure you see where an my king with this.

      We all gotta learn to HATE the right way. HATE is not a bad thing in and of itself. Hate can be very constructive.

      It took me decades to deprogram myself.

      • Millie_Woods

        I’ve gotten the same way. But I’d rather feel hate than fear.

  • truepeers

    it’s an either/or. If you say you are against both antisemitism and Islamophobia you are detached from the reality that to attack Jew hatred is implicitly or explicitly to attack Islamic values while the most cogent explanations for what’s wrong with Islam come from a Judeo-Christian perspective on God who has nothing to do with worldly violence. Ultimately you have to decide which form of discrimination is the greatest threat to peace and freedom. All can agree, except for blind relativists, that one prejudice is much more dangerous than the other. We just disagree about which one.

    Hmmph, the comment I posted there appears to have been deleted, so I’ll repost it here:

    It’s really not that hard to figure out. Western civilization was built
    on Judeo-Christian/secualr values. The Left hates western civilization.
    Islam is anti western civilization. Do the math.
