If Jenan Ayesh is telling the truth, her attacker should be found and tried for assault.
Here is what Jenan Ayesh says in this video about the attack: “On Saturday, my family and I were in the Reunion Tower. We all had a great time. And in the evening, when we decided to go home, we — as I was waiting for my ride, I was attacked by a woman who simply just wanted to use the door that we were standing in front of. She got really, uh, agitated with us, told me to go back to my country. As I was explaining to her that this is my country and I am an American, she told me that if I was American, then why do I wear this scarf on my head. I told her, ‘Because I’m an American Muslim.’ She slapped me, not just one time, she slapped me the first time, I didn’t respond to her. She tried to provoke me, she got up in my face. And when she realized that she was not gonna get a violent response from me, I guess that made her even more mad. So she struck me another time, and at this point she hit me in the middle of my head. I felt my eyes go blurry, I couldn’t see in front of me. She had me by the scarf, she took it off my head, and went on pulling my hair. People then gathered around and tried to pull her off of me and they were successful, but at that point people were more concerned of her well-being, not mine. I even heard one of the women say, ‘It’s okay, sweetie.’ They were protecting her as if I was the one who was attacking her, not the other way around.”
The passersby saw a woman repeatedly striking another, and they sided with the attacker? Perhaps Adam Soltani and Hamas-linked CAIR would have you believe that Americans are so “Islamophobic” as to aid a woman who was hitting another woman and pulling her hair rather than aid the victim, just because the victim was a hijabbed Muslima. But this strains credulity. It suggests that Jenan Ayesh is not telling the whole story, or telling it entirely accurately.
Given that “hate crimes” are a big business these days, and that Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” there should be a thorough investigation of what happened here. After all, there should be multiple witnesses. None of them spoke to police about this assault? Surely they will corroborate Jenan Ayesh’s story, won’t they? Or will this eventually be revealed as yet another fake hate crime designed to buttress the risible claim that Muslims are subjected to wholesale harassment and persecution in the United States?
“Muslim woman discusses Dallas attack,” by Carla Hinton, NewsOK, January 5, 2019:
An Oklahoma woman said she was recently assaulted in Dallas because she wore a head scarf identifying her as Muslim.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma chapter has asked that the Dallas Police Department investigate the incident as a hate crime.
Jenan Ayesh, an Enid resident who works in Oklahoma City, said the violent encounter occurred Dec. 29 when she and her mother were waiting for their ride outside Reunion Tower. Ayesh said a woman began speaking to her mother in a rude manner as they were standing in front of a door that she wanted to use to exit the building.
“She got really agitated with us and told me to go back to my country,” Ayesh said, describing the incident Friday at a news conference held by the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma chapter in Oklahoma City.
“As I was explaining to her that this is my country and I am an American, she told me that if I was American, why do I wear this scarf on my head. I told her because I am an American Muslim.”
Ayesh, 33, said the encounter quickly turned violent after the woman began cursing her and calling her names. She said the woman slapped her several times and when she didn’t respond in kind, the woman hit her over the head so hard that her vision became blurred. Ayesh said the woman also snatched off her head scarf known as a hijab and began pulling her hair.
Ayesh said she went to the hospital for treatment of her injuries and her family filed a report with the Dallas Police Department. Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR-OK, said Dallas Police have said they are investigating the incident. He said Ayesh has said her attacker appeared to be Hispanic….
