Attempted hate crime against Jews by a Somali Muslim in LA ignored by mainstream media



Hate crimes are always reported heavily by mainstream media. They draw eyeballs to television reports and visitors to websites. Reporters are quick to point out the possibility of an event being a hate crime if there’s a hint of it. But there’s one hate crime narrative that is immune to the media’s scrutiny. When a crime is allegedly committed by Muslims against Jews or Christians, reports are held as long as possible. Only when there’s no way to ignore it without looking stupid will mainstream media take note.

Such is the case of an attempted assault with a vehicle in Los Angeles on Friday night during the Sabbath. We could only find it on a handful of conservative news outlets and the local CBS affiliate.

Somali Muslim Arrested for Attempting to Mow Down Jews With Car in Front of L.A. Synagogue Angeles police are investigating an incident Friday night as a potential hate crime after a Somali man, 32-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Abdi, attempted to run down worshipers standing outside a Hancock Park synagogue.

According to witness, Abdi was yelling “F**king Jews! F**king Jews!” during the attack.

Abdi reportedly insulted another couple leaving the synagogue before getting into his car and attempting to run over two men.

He later crashed into another car nearby, at which time he was arrested. A Koran was found on the dashboard of his car.

The story is finally getting some legs. Mainstream media won’t be able to ignore it for much longer. But this happened Friday in Los Angeles. Why did it take so long for anyone to take notice?

Perhaps it would have been reported sooner if the roles of victim and alleged attacker were reversed. That’s the type of story mainstream media would report instantly.
