In fact, anti-semitic acts occur about 8 times as often as the anti-Muslim acts that academia just loves to harp on.

Malcolm A. Kline at Accuracy in Academia has the story:

Anti-Semitism in Action

When faced with a choice between confronting two evils, elites—particularly academic ones—usually focus on the less prevalent one.  “In April, the Fifth Annual Conference on Islamophobia was held at UC Berkeley’s Boalt Law School, organized by Hatem Bazian, a Palestinian activist, co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine, and professor of a current Berkeley course called ‘De-Constructing Islamophobia and the History of Otherness,’ with part of the course requirements being that students open a Twitter account and tweet at least once a week about ‘Islamophobia,’” Richard L. Cravatts, president of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East wrote in The Times of Israel.

Meanwhile, Cravatts notes, “FBI statistics indicate that acts of anti-Semitism occur with eight times the regularity of anti-Muslim incidents, and that between 2011 and 2012 alone, the number of anti-Semitic incidents on college campuses tripled.”
