Perfectly named after the Prophet Mohammed who also killed many Jews, this Muslim named ‘Mohammed Mohammed’ was caught on video repeatedly trying to run over Orthodox Jewish men outside a synagogue.
The Hill (h/t TherezaB) Authorities are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime, CBS Los Angeles reported. Video from a security camera shows the driver apparently trying to hit two men dressed in clothing typically worn by Orthodox Jews on Shabbat.
Mohammed Mohammed, 32, was arrested in connection with the incident and was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. According to security footage obtained by CBSLA, the suspect was seen making a “hard-U-turn” during the event, while another tape shows the driver reversing his vehicle and attempting to strike group a second time.
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.
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said earlier this month that he is “particularly troubled by the increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes — which were already the most common religious hate crimes in the United States.”
(You can thank Obama’s immigration policies which dumped hundreds of thousands more Muslims into the U.S. During Obama’s reign, the Muslim population increased from 2.2 million to 3.2 million)
