“According to Levin, hoaxes do crop up in hate crime reporting, as they do across the spectrum of criminal offenses. But he said they are a ‘tiny fraction’ of the hundreds of hate crimes reported annually.”
A “tiny fraction”? Really? What is his evidence for that? He has none, of course. In reality, anti-Muslim hate crimes that turn out to have been faked by Muslims are so numerous as to be commonplace.
Hate crimes are political capital. When real ones don’t exist, they must be invented. Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. A New Jersey Muslim was found guilty of murder that he tried to portray as an “Islamophobic” attack, and in 2014 in California, a Muslim was found guilty of killing his wife, after first blaming her murder on “Islamophobia.”
This kind of thing happens quite frequently. The New York Daily News reported that “a woman who told cops she was called a terrorist and slashed on her cheek in lower Manhattan on Thursday later admitted she made up the story, police said early Friday. The woman, who wore a headscarf, told authorities a blade-wielding wacko sliced open her face as she left a Manhattan cosmetology school, police sources said.”
We were told that a Muslim boy was attacked and beat up on his school bus in North Carolina — but a photo showed him without a scratch and no one on the bus corroborated his story. And recently in Britain, the murder of a popular imam was spread far and wide as another “Islamophobic hate crime” – until his killer also was found to be a Muslim. The Mirror reported that the imam “was targeted because he had made efforts to turn youngsters away from radical Islam.”
According to The Detroit News, a Muslim woman, Saida Chatti, was “charged with making a false police report after she allegedly fabricated a plot to blow up Dearborn Fordson High School to retaliate against the November terrorist attacks in Paris….Police say Chatti called Dearborn investigators Nov. 19, six days after Islamic extremists killed 130 people in Paris.”
And similarly in Britain, a Muslim woman was “fined for lying to police about being attacked for wearing a hijab. The 18-year-old student, known only as Miss Choudhury, said she was violently shoved from behind and punched in the face by a man in Birmingham city centre 10 days after the atrocities in the French capital on November 13.”
Ignoring all this and more, the execrable thug Nathan Lean, who has several times published on Twitter what he thought was my address in an obvious clumsy attempt to alert jihadis to my whereabouts and/or frighten me into silence, posits: “The reason this girl made up this story is because of the real possibility of her experiencing a scenario like this.” No, the reason this girl made up this story was because she was afraid of her father’s wrath over her being out late and having a non-Muslim boyfriend. The real danger that Yasmin Seweid is in because of her family’s devout observance of Islam is the only genuine way that she has been threatened — but you will never hear about that from the likes of Nathan Lean or other “Islamophobia” propagandists. If her father kills her for sullying the family’s honor by straying from the tenets of Islam, they won’t say a word. But if her father puts on a Trump hat and then kills her — well!
