Driver tries to run down Los Angeles Jews
Another antisemitic attack in the US as a driver tries to run down Jews walking from synagogue in Los Angeles. Quick, let’s blame Trump! Oh wait…
Video from a security camera shows the driver apparently trying to hit two men dressed in clothing typically worn by Orthodox Jews on Shabbat. The driver, who has been identified as 32-year-old Mohammed Mohammed, reversed and tried to hit them again.
The man reportedly insulted a group of Jewish people leaving the synagogue before he got into his vehicle and attempted to run them over, the Los Angeles Police Department told the local NBC affiliate.
The suspect’s car crashed into another vehicle. No one was injured during the incident, according to NBC Los Angeles.
Mohammed, who was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with a vehicle, is reportedly being held on $55,000 bail.
“Why he chose us? Probably because of the yarmulkes on our heads,” one of the people targeted, who asked to remain anonymous, told CBS Los Angeles”.
So are we now going to hear, from the Anti-Defamation League and other progressive American Jews, excoriating denunciations of the evil, murderous ideology and its facilitators in the political class that created the conditions for this antisemitic attack, just as they fell over themselves to deliver after Pittsburgh?
