Fake Muslim Hate Crime of the Day.
SYLVANIA TWP., Oh. (WNWO) — Authorities say charges have been filed in connection to a graffiti incident on the garage door of an Arab family in Lucas County.
Sylvania Township police say Osama Nazzal, 28, of Toledo, was charged with criminal damaging in connection to the incident.
On Jan. 10, the Sylvania Twp. home of Souheir Eltatawi had been spray-painted with a swastika and derogatory phrase that read, “Expletive Arabs.”
From the original report: Sylvania Township home vandalized with racist words
Ali, a close relative of the family, spoke on their behalf to NBC 24 and said he believes this was meant to harm their family emotionally.
“I don’t think they hate us. I think that was to hurt us,” said Ali, who wished to exclude his last name from this story.
He also believes they’re trying to cause a divide.
“They’re trying to separate us. They’re trying to hurt us. They’re trying to label us in a group of people; we’re not like that,” said Ali.
When asked what he would say to the person or persons who did this if he had the chance:
“Be a little more creative, that’s terrible and tacky, it was just for the purpose of hurting us ,there was no thought that went into that, maybe a little bit of planning, but the person who did this have no intellectual capacity,” said Ali.
What does Ali think now and why didn’t NBC do a follow-up interview? Does Ali know Osama perhaps?
