Spectator is Simply Wrong on This. Anti-Muslim Hate (vs) Anti-Semitism is Not a Competition

Do media outlets and leftists care more about Islamophobia than antisemitism? Brendan O’Neill made the case in a recent Spectator column; yet the article is a rather lazy and divisive argument. There is a fundamental problem with O’Neill’s point that media outlets ignored the larger increase in antisemitic hate crime in London. He ignored the
