The numbers are getting skewed. From the FBI link that I posted, 58% of hate crimes are committed on the basis of race. 21% are on the basis of religion. Out of that 21%, 54% were against Jews. That is no where close to the calculation posted above, and I still don't understand the topic.

Yes.
Not to inject too much politics, but more so nowadays.

Okay, if 54% of religious hate crimes are against Jews, and Jews are only 2% of the U.S. population,that doesn't seem like an extremely high percentage of religious hate crimes against Jews??

And cause for concern for all of us?

Not really sure what you are hoping to accomplish on here.

What you choose not to understand is that we are a small, closely knit community with at times no more than one degree of separation it seems. Anti-Semitism is the oldest, most vile form of hatred, has been around thousands of years.

We are rightfully alarmed and concerned after Pittsburgh-the single most fatal anti-Semitic attack on history in the U.S. but at the same time extremely grateful for the professionalism and dedication of law enforcement professionals, most notably today foiling a possible planned attack in Ohio.

Why do you feel the need to come on here and downplay the prevalence of anti-Semitism today? Arenít there enough other places on the inter webs for that than an expressly Jewish forum?

In my newsfeed there is literally an anti-Jewish hate crime reported almost every day

Most of them are here in New York City,where I live (and where a large percentage of American Jews live).

Several times a week there is a violent attack against a Hasidic Jewish man or boy in various neighborhoods of Brooklyn (Borough Park, Williamsburg, Crown Heights,etc.).

There are also frequent sightings of swastikas painted on homes, walls, in classrooms, etc.

It's almost not even "news" anymore

I agree with what you're saying and therefore can't figure out why you'd pick a user name like "JewBan." It sends the wrong message.
