Left wing Press and biased BBC ignore rising anti-Semitic hate crime – focus only on Muslim victims

by | 10th, September 2015

The Metropolitan Police say hate crime is up. Crimes against Muslims have risen in London by 70% on last year (816 Islamophobic compared with 478 for the previous year). Anti-Semitic crime saw the biggest year-on-year increase, rising 93 percent over the same period (499 incidents compared with 258).

How do you report the grim statistics?

According to the Muslim Council of Britain’s (MCB) study of data from the 2011 census, there are 1,012,800 Muslims living in London. Sixty percent of the UK’s 263,000 Jews live in London – 157,800. If we crunch the numbers, Jews have move than double the chance of being attacked for their race than a Muslim does for their belief.

So how is this reported in the mainstream news?

 

The Guardian:

Mention of Jews: nil.

 

The Independent:

Number of times Jews are mentioned: nil.

Neither the Guardian nor the Indy finds space to mention the rise in anti-Semitic attacks at all.

 

The BBC is perhaps the most shocking. A search for ‘hate crime’ reveals this result:

Number of time Jewish attacks are mentioned in any of the BBC’s three most recent stories on hate crimes: nil. Once might be an oversight – three times looks like an agenda.
