Yesterday I linked to an article titled Muslims & Jews Unite vs. Abercrombie & Fitch.
In the United States, Jews and Muslims have a great deal in common. The most obvious being that both Judaism and Islam are minority faiths in America. Both are about 2 percent of the overall population. And sadly members of both communities have been targets of bigotry and endured discrimination and worse simply because of their faith.
While anti-Semitism in the United States is thankfully at all time lows, it was not always like this. ...Regarding Muslims, we have clearly seen in recent times an uptick in anti—Muslim bigotry. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/16/muslims-jews-unite-vs-abercrombie-fitch.html
As I read the above paragraphs, it seemed to me that Muslims had more to fear regarding being targets of bigotry. But, after reading the data presented by the FBI about Hate Crime Statistics for the year 2013, I realized I was wrong.
Of the 1,223 victims of anti-religious hate crimes:
- 60.3 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-Jewish bias.
- 13.7 percent were victims of anti-Islamic (Muslim) bias.
Thomas Friedman opines, This Israeli Election Matters.
In a NYT article he writes the "Israeli right today is no longer dominated by security hawks and free-marketeers like Netanyahu. It is dominated by West Bank settlers and scary religious-nationalist zealots like Naftali Bennett."
He writes about allowing "Israel to securely withdraw from most of the West Bank, either in a negotiated deal with the Palestinians or unilaterally."
Yes, the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza worked so beautifully, why not try it again?
I asked a relative why Friedman pressures Israel and doesn't ask for any solutions for the Palestininans to adopt. Why not let Friedman call for sanctions against the Palstinians whenever a rocket is tossed over to their neighbors instead of allowing them cement to rebuild which can be used for terror tunnels?
He responded, "Because that would not be a popular article."
