If this isn't a glaring case of Dhimmitude, please submit whatever you think trumps it. Los Angeles City Council has apparently decided that acts of violence against Muslims there are so rampant that a resolution needed to be passed to head off such conditions as 'Islamophobia' among its populace. However, when you run the numbers, Muslims - by far and away - suffer the fewest number of religious attacks. You get one guess as to what group DOES suffer the most hate crimes based on religion.

Via the Los Angeles Daily News:
WITHOUT serious debate or examination, the Los Angeles City Council recently passed a resolution that opposes "Islamophobia" and "repudiates" random acts of violence against Muslims.

This admittedly ceremonial resolution apparently accepts the premise that residents of the city commit acts of hate against Muslims so often that it warrants an official resolution from city leaders condemning and repudiating these acts. Is this really the case?

According to the latest hate crime report from the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, 88 percent of all religiously based hate crimes in 2009 were against Jews. Hate crimes that targeted Muslims (3 percent) ranked slightly above those directed at Scientologists (1 percent). In fact, the commission found that attacks against Christians (8 percent) outnumbered attacks against Muslims.

In any case, the actual number of reported hate crimes based on religion is quite small. In a county that has more than 10 million highly diverse residents, only a total of 131 crimes based on religion took place in all of 2009. Of course, this in no way takes away from the emotional or physical harm that each and every one of these attacks causes.
For those interested in running the numbers, 3% of 131 = 3.93 Muslims in Los Angeles County were victims of hate crimes based on religion in 2009. Jews suffered approximately 115 such attacks yet are apparently still waiting for that resolution.
