Muslim Attacked In America; Star Of David Carved Into His Back
His crime? Supporting Israel.
Alaa Alsaegh says that two cars followed him as he drove on Compton. The drivers cut him off and Alsaegh says he pulled over. That's when two men got out of a car, armed with a handgun. They got into Alsaegh's car and attacked him with a knife.
Alsaegh showed us a photo that his friend took at the hospital. More than a month later, Alsaegh still has scars. News 4's camera captured the outline of the Star of David, visible on Alsaegh's back.
Alsaegh is a Muslim from Iraq. He says he recently posted a poem, online, expressing support for Jewish people in Israel. Alsaegh says that his attackers told him not to publish any more poems.
Nonie Darwish at FrontPage Magazine has more.

Below the fold, Alaa's poetry that inflamed the radicals who committed this hate crime against him. Unfortunately for me, it's in Arabic. If anyone here speaks Arabic and can spare a few minutes to translate, I'm sure many, including myself, would greatly appreciate it.
