Not that facts matter to people these days, however:
"Why do Islamists obfuscate? "
"The false picture of an epidemic of physical
assaults on Muslims distracts Americans from Islamist hatred and
enshrines Muslims as the country’s leading victim class, a strategy
intended to intimidate citizens into remaining quiet about Islamic
supremacism and lay the groundwork for granting Muslims special
privileges and protections at the expense of others. In short,
anti-Muslim hate crimes are a powerful Islamist weapon."
