The Islamophobia Fear Factory
Eight large donors are responsible for the shameless and ceaseless fearmongering around Islam in the United States. They are Donors Capital and Donors Trust, the Scaife Foundations, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, William Rosenwald Family Fund, Middle Road Foundation, & Abstraction Fund, Russell Berrie Foundation, Fairbrook Foundation, Newton D. & Rochelle F. Becker Foundation and Charitable Trust, and Alan and Hope Winters Family Foundation. [su_center_ad]
…we know that the effect of the anti-Muslim hysteria that this network generates is in an uptick in the number of hate crimes. To give you an example, for instance, in the aftermath of the hysteria that was created over the construction of the so-called Ground Zero mosque in New York City, hate crimes in New York City against Muslims in 2010 were 300 percent higher than they were in 2009. And again, we’re seeing this now, whether it was in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings or in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo attack and the rise in ISIS, etc. I think shedding light on this network was something that we wanted to do in 2011 in the first report, but in this second report we detailed how the policies, the discriminatory policies that this network is promoting, is in fact hurting the lives of average Americans.
