“Religion of Tolerance”: Gunmen Carve Jewish Star on US Muslim Who Supports Israel

By Debbie Schlussel

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!

Islamic “Tolerance” for Pro-Israel Muslims

Yup. The fact is the few genuine Muslim moderates are stigmatized by their community.

We know they really are and who they support. So why do people keep pretending otherwise? Its a good question.

Thanks for the story Debbie, one of you’re posters/readers and friend of ours, “NormanF” posted this specific link on the Fox News thread earlier on today.

To me, this is indeed a “hate-crime” and Mr. Alsaegh and his family and relatives should hire themselves a great attorney and prosecute the folks who attacked him. And from what I read on that website, that his attackers happend to be “muslim zealots”. They attacked the poor dude, because wrote numerous poems in support and defense of Israel, jewish people and zionism, etc. And those dopes who commented on that website couldn’t be wrong, there saying it’s not a hate crime in which it is a hate crime, simple as that.

    “Mr. Alsaegh and his family and relatives should hire themselves a great attorney and prosecute the folks who attacked him”

    Come on Sean, you know better than that. The victim of a crime can not hire a prosecuting attorney. If he wants to sue, that is a different matter, but it is up to the state to decide whom to prosecute and to provide the prosecuting attorney.

See that, Debbie? There are good Muslim-Americans too. Unfortunately, this is what happens when they speak up.

“There are good Muslim-Americans too. Unfortunately, this is what happens when they speak up.”

Absolutely correct and true, the “moderate-muslims” who do speak up and condmens jihadism amongst their fellow co-religionist recieves all types of intimidation from their other co-religionist in their communities.

Question, is CAIR going to come out and condemn this violent plot against Mr. Alsaegh, by other muslims who carved that “Star of David” on the poor man’s back? I’m not going to hold my breath for CAIR or any muslim lobby group to come out and condemn this attack!

Sean, I couldn’t agree with you more about CAIR and the other muslime groups that probably won’t denounce this crime. Other people you won’t see denounce this will probably include Rev Wright, Jackson, Sharpton… All of B Hussein Obama’s buddies

What religion are they. I’m going to hazard a guess and say militant methodists.

CornCoLeo on September 28, 2011 at 4:25 pm

CAIR supports the attack, no doubt. Vermin.

That’s so disgusting that someone could perpetrate such a crime onto someone else just for their beliefs and for speaking out. This is why we should expell all muslims from America. I know it might seem harsh in kicking the muslims out of America. But, look what they’re doing and this will just continue to occur with greater frequency. I am applauded by this action.

Wouldn’t it be refreshing to see some of the driveby media expend energy on investigating a story like this… instead of waste it telling us how Islam is soooo “tolerant”, “peaceful”, and “misunderstood”?

PitandPen on September 28, 2011 at 6:22 pm

PitandPen’s sentiment in which I agree with him or her:

“instead of waste it telling us how Islam is soooo “tolerant”, “peaceful”, and “misunderstood”?”

P&P, since you mentioned the word “misunderstood”, on this blog I’ve called the islamist-apologist/dhimmis who comments here, I use the term “Misunderstood Bears of Islam” towards those who apologize for the islamist, and show their phony and fraudulant outrage towards DS for NO reason!

Sean R. on September 28, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    Sean, those dhimmis are yet another variant of liberal. One of the key indicators of talking with a liberal is that they assert that what you see isn’t really what you see. Upside-down world view, where evil is good and good is evil. So when we SEE Islam and Muslims for what they actually ARE, liberals tell us we are wrong and we “misunderstand” them.

Is it time to kick out the Moors yet?

Muslims such as Alaa Alsaegh are the real ‘tiny minority’ as far as Muslims go. If they had indeed been 80% or so of the population, there would have been so many of them that the 20% thugs that would have been around would have been scared to do things like they did to Mr Alsaegh. So don’t bother using him as the template within which to fit even most Muslims – just doesn’t work.

I agree w/ Rick S and Ferdinand King that this is why all Muslims ought to be expelled from America. Yeah, doing that would also get rid of people like Mr Alsaegh, but they are such a tiny minority that while it’s regrettable that they’d have to suffer as well, it’s not worth basing the policy on Muslims on people like them, unrepresentative as they are. Moreover, there are enough taquiyya experts among Muslims who’ll do things like this (I’m not saying Mr Alsaegh is one) in order to work their way in this country, and later perpetuate some outrage or another.

I know that it’s not going to happen. But if any sane, sensible policy was ever to be made about Muslims in this country, Mr Alsaegh’s assailants, rather than Mr Alsaegh himself, is what it ought to be modelled upon.

I have known and met a few moderate Muslims in both India and in North America over the years but unfortunately they are afraid to speak up lest they get the same sort of barbaric treatment this man Alsaegh received. So they remain silent out of fear and the jihadist types get all the attention.
