We have seen the faking of hate crimes in the U.S. as well: the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has claimed that "anti-Muslim hate crimes" have risen sharply in the U.S. since 9/11. In fact, the rate of such crimes has actually dropped. CAIR knows well that victimhood is big business: insofar as they can claim protected victim status for Muslims in the U.S., they can deflect unwanted scrutiny and any critical examination of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism.
That's most likely why CAIR and others have not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating "hate crimes." They want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.
And so it is with Noor Ramjanally. He had hoped to use the undeniably noxious BNP as a scapegoat to help him advance his claim to privileged victim status. No dice...this time.
"Essex Muslim leader in court over kidnap claim," from the BBC, June 9 (thanks to Paul):
A Muslim community leader claimed he was abducted by members of the British National Party, a court has heard.
Noor Ramjanally, 36, of Loughton, Essex, has denied attempting to pervert the course of justice by falsely telling police he had been abducted.
Chelmsford Crown Court heard Mr Ramjanally had complained of having accelerant poured through his letterbox prior to being "kidnapped".
The court heard the local council spent £1,300 improving security at his home.
A new door was fitted to his council flat and police installed a hidden camera, a local authority official told the court.
But prosecutor Matthew Gowan said camera footage revealed no sign of the "two burly men" Mr Ramjanally claimed had snatched him at knife point last August....
