Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer, March 21, 2017:
Hate crime is a booming business today: both Leftists and their Muslim allies are making as much of use of hate crimes as they possibly can in order to discredit foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression as racist, redneck, violent yahoos who deserve no place in the public square. There’s just one problem: actual hate crimes against Leftists and Muslims are so thin on the ground that they have to be invented in order to keep this failing narrative alive. And so here we go again.
The London Muslim Mosque website says: “This afternoon, a young man entered the London Muslim Mosque during a prayer service, looking for food and assistance. After being provided with some food, he persisted in his asks. During a verbal confrontation, the situation escalated and he made threats to those present. Staff and volunteers at the Mosque have been trained to call London Police in any circumstance where there is any suggestion of a security threat, and this protocol was followed.”
They do not mention, of course, that the perpetrator was Muslim.
