Why is saying offensive things about Jews a crime in Europe but not about Muslims?
The LRC blog and Dancing with Sprites on that, here and here

Long story short: thanks to World War II guilt Jews are a privileged class and Muslims, also an historic designated other, aren’t.

Which is why many make excuses for the Zionist state much like some do for black-on-white crime (‘some groups are entitled because they’ve been oppressed’).

And ‘acceptable’ unspoken racism: Jews of European descent are whiter than many/most Muslims.
