The FBI has released their statistics for hate crimes in 2012 and the numbers show that almost 2/3 of religious hate crimes are committed by offenders with an anti-Jewish bias. Of the 1340 religious hate crimes in 2012, 62% were victims of an offender's anti-Jewish bias. That figure is five times the number as the number two group, Muslims (12%). The number three slot goes to offenders with groups of "varying religions" bias and spot number four goes to offenders with anti-Catholic bias (6.4.)
