Another stat that shows that it is Jews not Muslims who are suffering from hate crimes
After being drafted 23rd overall in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft, Omri Casspi became the first Israeli-born player to ever play in the league. Prior to his rookie season, Casspi, a 6'9 forward, had spent his entire life in Israel, but now a year into his American experience and on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, he's been forced to face the reality that "post-racial" America was just a figment of the liberal media's collective imagination.
KCRA Sacramento reported:
A mural featuring Sacramento Kings small forward Omri Casspi was defaced with a swastika just before an important Jewish holiday.The mural is near 16th and R streets in midtown Sacramento, about a half-block from Fremont Park.
Casspi, who is Jewish, was raised in Israel and is the only NBA player born in that country.
The vandalism was reported Wednesday morning; the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset Wednesday.
Based on a preliminary investigation, Sacramento police said the vandalism might be investigated as a hate crime.
There were 1,606 hate crime offenses motivated by religious bias in 2008. A breakdown of these offenses shows:
- 65.7 percent were anti-Jewish.
- 13.2 percent were anti-other religion.
- 7.7 percent were anti-Islamic.
- 4.7 percent were anti-Catholic.
- 4.2 percent were anti-multiple religions, group.
- 3.7 percent were anti-Protestant.
- 0.9 percent were anti-Atheism/Agnosticism/etc. (Based on Table 1.)
and yet the slant of our media and government is otherwise
