Another day, another really stupid post at J-Source, home of your moral and intellectual superiors:
In 2007, The Canadian Federation of Students conducted a task force on the needs of Muslim students in Ontario and found that discrimination against Muslims in university contexts is systemic. The Ontario Human Rights Commission contends that since the attacks of September, 2001 Islamophobic attitudes are becoming more prevalent in society and Muslims are increasingly the targets of intolerance. A recent poll confirms that negative feelings towards Muslims are on the rise in Canada. Thirty–six percent of respondents across the country expressed anti-Muslim sentiment, compared to 27 percent a year ago.
Too bad that’s all crap — crap spread about by (you guessed it) Journalists: Your Moral and Intellectual Superiors:
In 2007, the perversity of was demonstrated when the FBI released its annual 2007 hate crime reports. Of the total 1,628 victims of anti-religious hate crimes, 69.2% were Jewish and 8.7% were Muslim. Yet by my still unfinished account, there were at least 40 times more stories last year about Islamophobia than about anti-Semitism.
