Security camera footage from a hospital emergency room in Dearborn, Michigan shows a man attacking and beating a 19-year-old Muslim woman as she checks in.
Detroit’s WDIV 4 reported Friday that attacker John Deliz, a recently-discharged patient, came up to the 19-year-old woman wearing hijab while she was checking in to see if she had broken her jaw when falling on ice earlier in the day on February 20.
Deliz had been wandering the halls of the hospital and asking people for cigarettes when security guards told him to wait in the ER waiting room until he could get a ride to leave. Shortly after being the subject of that demand, he attacked the teen, whose name has not yet been released.
“She never saw it coming,” Majed Moughni, the young woman’s attorney, told WDIV. He also announced that his client is suing the Beaumont Dearborn hospital for emotional damages, and said they are investigating whether the attack was based on her religion.
Moughni himself had been the subject of Islamophobic threats in the region that boasts a large Muslim and Arab population after suing Little Ceasars pizza chain for making fraudulent claims about halal pizzas that he said did not actually adhere to Muslim dietary restrictions. After the lawsuits began gaining media attention, the attorney said he and his daughter began receiving death threats on social media, and eventually withdraw the complaints.

Franklin Graham unleashes angry rant about Trump impeachment – then quotes the Bible: ‘The Lord detests lying lips’
Evangelical activist Franklin Graham, who is closely tied to President Donald Trump, is once again defending the Commander-in-Chief, and once again is twisting truth into a prayerful pretzel to do so.
This may be the most consequential week yet in the 146 week-long presidency of Donald Trump.
Starting Wednesday the House Intelligence Committee will hold open hearings for three administration officials who are expected to testify on live television across major cable news channels and broadcast networks that the President of the United States of America engaged in a systematic and sustained effort of extortion and bribery in an attempt to force a U.S. ally to manufacture false evidence against his top political opponent.
Republicans’ betrayal of America sinks to new depths as the impeachment hearings go public
The House is set this week to begin the first in a series of impeachment hearings. As we listen to testimony and consider the facts, we should bear in mind the big picture.
So far, the focus is rightly on Donald Trump’s extortion—the correct legal term—of Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, for personal political gain. Our attention is on his warping of American foreign policy, putting the service of our national interests below his own. That alone is an abuse of power that the framers themselves thought was worthy of indictment by a majority of the the US House of Representatives.
‘No complications’ from Carter surgery for brain pressure
Former US president Jimmy Carter was recovering in a Georgia hospital following surgery Tuesday to relieve pressure on his brain after he suffered multiple falls, an aide said.
"There are no complications from the surgery" to ease the pressure caused by a subdural hematoma, the Carter Center said in a statement.
The 95-year-old Nobel laureate was taken to Emory University Hospital on Monday ahead of the surgery, and he "will remain in the hospital as long as advisable for observation," the center added.
Carter spent three days in hospital last month after suffering a pelvic fracture.
