So, an Arab Muslim immigrant to the U.S. openly supports Israel, and gunmen carve a Jewish Star tattoo into his back with a knife. Gee, I wonder what religion they are. No way they’re Muslim, right? (BTW, as you watch the video below, you should probably disregard the reference to FrontPageMag. That hypocritical site continues to pay and employ writers and editors who openly supported the praise of Holocaust-denying Muslim death, rape, and torture threats on my life and my Holocaust survivor grandparents. Remember that whenever you hear David Horowitz decrying Muslim anti-Semitism.)
Yes, this is in the United States of America. Not in Riyadh, Beirut, Paris, or London. But in the U.S.A.
He was attacked on Compton Avenue, just south of downtown on August 14th.
Alaa Alsaegh says that two cars followed him as he drove on Compton. The drivers cut him off and Alsaegh says he pulled over. That’s when two men got out of a car, armed with a handgun. They got into Alsaegh’s car and attacked him with a knife.
Alsaegh showed us a photo that his friend took at the hospital. More than a month later, Alsaegh still has scars. News 4′s camera captured the outline of the Star of David, visible on Alsaegh’s back.
Alsaegh is a Muslim from Iraq. He says he recently posted a poem, online, expressing support for Jewish people in Israel. Alsaegh says that his attackers told him not to publish any more poems.
St Louis Police confirm that officers responded to a call for help around 10:45 a.m. on August 14th. The department referred News 4 to the local FBI office. Spokeswoman Rebecca Wu responded via email saying, “The FBI cannot comment”.
Now if this was the case of a Jew getting a crescent carved on his back for being pro-Muslim, Famous But Incompetent would be alllllll over it!
