Hate crime in Toledo area

The Toledo Blade reported on January 11 a hate crime against Arab Americans in Sylvania township.

Now police have arrested a suspect.

From the Toledo Blade last month:
A Sylvania Township family says they can’t imagine how anyone could paint the racist graffiti they discovered on their garage door Tuesday night.
Someone painted a swastika and cursed Arabs in the graffiti on a house in the 7000 block of Cinnamon Teal Court. Sylvania Township police are investigating the incident as an act of “ethnic intimidation,” according to a media release today from police.
The publication included with the story, a statement from CAIR-Cleveland Executive Director Julia Shearson:
“We call on state and local religious and political leaders — including the Township Administrator — to condemn this incident in the strongest possible terms in order to reassure all diverse communities that hate-motivated attacks and vandalism are not welcome in our state or community.
“We call on those community leaders to come together to host events that build bridges of understanding, mutual respect and tolerance in order to counter such hateful acts.
“We call on local, state and federal law enforcement authorities to thoroughly investigate this incident in order to identify and apprehend the alleged perpetrators.”
CAIR’s national office has noted a spike in incidents targeting American Muslims and other minority groups since the Nov. 8 presidential election.
That last line should have said a spike in reports of such incidents.

So police investigated and today they made an arrest.

From the Associated Press:
Police have charged an Ohio man with criminal damaging in the spray-painting of a swastika and message cursing Arabs on a Lebanese family's garage door in suburban Toledo.
Sylvania Township police say 28-year-old Osama Nazzal, of Toledo, has a March 1 court appearance to face the second-degree misdemeanor count. Police say he told them the message wasn't a matter of ethnic intimidation, but they declined to discuss his possible motive.
Court records don't list an attorney for him and no one answered a telephone Wednesday that had been listed to him.
The Blade newspaper of Toledo reported that resident Souheir Eltatawy said she has felt afraid since the vandalism occurred; she declined further comment Wednesday.
An installer and radio station donated a new garage door to help the family after the Jan. 10 vandalism, and the community has shown support in other ways. People put encouraging messages on the defaced door about welcoming neighbors and love conquering hate. A couple hundred people also joined members of the Toledo Symphony to sing outside the home.
Good police work. Thank you.

So CAIR gets to add a hate crime against Arab Americans.

Which is odd since Toledo has long had a strong Lebanese community.

And so many people went out of their way to show love for their neighbors.

Wonder if CAIR gave the family a gift....

  1. We went past the point long ago where it was obvious that these things are always fake, self-inflicted events or false flag operations, such as this one, yet the press carries on with the charade, every single time of some hate crime having been committed. Hell the reporter covering the "crime" could have done it himself for all we know, and stand there with a straight face preaching to us.
    This is beyond disgusting.
    White America is guilty until hell freezes over as far as these pieces of crap are concerned.
    No chance of reprieve whatsoever.
    I think the right place to direct real hate crimes is not at the muzzies but at the press.

  2. Hmmmmm. A swastika on an Arab's house... What's wrong with that picture?

    1. Indeed. Hitler had enthusiastic supporters among Middle Eastern Moslems. Jew Hatred, it seems, is a powerful bond.

    2. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a big fan of the Nazis and met Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis. They were interested in how they could help with the Final Solution. The Waffen-SS had several divisions of Muslims. - Elric

  3. Wait...a Muzzie committed a crime against another Muzzie? I can't believe it...

    Well, yeah, I can.

    1. Yes, and it's OBVIOUSLY white america's "fault".

  4. Meanwhile, a couple of hours away in Fort Wayne ... "Homeowner defends Trump effigy."

    1. A disabled vet....he needs more time in the mental health clinic. Or maybe he's just an asshole.

  5. Osama Nazzal? Not your typical white redneck name, is it.

    I live about 40 miles from Sylvania Township. It's crooked as a dog's hind leg politically, but there are good people everywhere.

    I'm sure you know this, Don, but the Blade is owned by the same liberal nutjob as the Pittsburgh paper.

  6. "...Toledo has long had a strong Lebanese community."
