2. Muslim Hate Hoaxes
Who hasn’t heard of the notorious “backlash” Americans have been unleashing on Muslims since 9/11? We’re to believe that Americans don’t have anything better to do than spray paint hate graffiti on every Muslim business they come across. Intimidation and rudeness sums up what the media thinks Americans are into. But have you ever heard of the fake islamophobia hate hoaxes? I hadn’t. But rest assured if any of these were really true, the leftist media would run 24-hour news cycles to inform us of it. It seems there should be harsher punishments for faking a hate crime considering how much community angst follows.
McALLEN, Tex., Sept. 29 – The owner of a Middle Eastern meat market who had said he was the victim of a hate crime in this border town was arrested and arraigned Tuesday [Sept. 28] on a felony arson charge that he set fire to his own business. The man, Amjad Abunar, had complained that “Go Home” was twice spray-painted on a door of his Al Madinah Market before a fire on Aug. 6 that gutted the small delicatessen. Only last week, the graffiti and fire were cited as evidence by a Washington advocacy group that hate crimes against Muslims were on the rise in Texas. Bond for Mr. Abunar was set at $150,000, and he remained in jail on Wednesday.
KGW (8)’s 11 p.m. news. “The son of a prominent Muslim is told he can’t fly home to Portland and tonight, his family is looking for answers,”…Here’s what actually happened at LAX: Shehab Ahmed did miss one plane home to Portland, but only because he got to the airport late. When he tried to get on another flight, there was a problem—a momentary one. Shehab’s name matched a name on the terror watch list. The ticket agent asked for ID, and Shehab was allowed on the flight to Portland…He was not told he couldn’t fly home; he was allowed on the flight he wanted to be on after providing ID. He wasn’t yanked out line or taken to a special room for questioning by government agents. In fact, government agents—TSA personnel—were not involved in any of this. What happened to Shehab that March day isn’t found in any TSA or FBI report; there was no incident to report.
The story that developed in July  was just too good to pass up: a Jordanian-born restaurant owner in Xenia, Ohio had been the apparent victim of repeated attempts to burn down his store. The day after the third attack, when a Molotov cocktail had been thrown through the front window of his business, yet another explosion rocked the store – the second attack in 24 hours – sending the owner and his son to the hospital with burns over 80-90 percent of their bodies. An employee in an adjoining store was also taken to the hospital for injuries. Just hours before the blast, the store owner had been interviewed by a local TV station vowing that he would never give in to pressure to close the store (video of the interview can be seen here). Arson investigators have determined that the final blast that severely injured the store owner, Musa Shteiwi, and his son, Essa, was set by the pair themselves. In a performance worthy of a Darwin Award, the Shteiwis were standing in a pool of gasoline that they intended to use as an accelerant in setting their store ablaze later that night when Musa Shteiwi took a break and lit up a cigarette, igniting the gasoline prematurely and causing the blast that inflicted their injuries. But there’s more: prosecutors claim that Shteiwi had hired a former employee, Joshua Hunter, to commit the previous attacks against his store that CAIR had insisted were hate crimes committed by non-Muslim members of the Xenia community. Hunter has been jailed and charged with arson, and similar charges against Musa and Essa Shteiwi are pending until after they have recovered from their injuries.
The source link has several more stories and links to other hoaxes. The media and CAIR might want to watch the sanctimonious tone when reporting so-called hate crimes and do a little research before jumping the gun and accusing innocent Americans.
