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.

Trump will turn to these secret weapons in desperation if the economy collapses before the 2020 election
President Donald Trump, in recent weeks, has been stressing both economic themes and culture war themes. The economic themes were evident during a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on August 15, when Trump tried to frighten 401(k) owners into reelecting him and insisted, “You have no choice but to vote for me because your 401(k), everything is going to be down the tubes (under a Democratic president). So whether you love me or hate me, you’ve got to vote for me.” But if the U.S. does go into a recession in the months ahead, Trump will have a harder time selling himself as the salvation of the American economy — in which case, he would likely become even more aggressive in pushing divisive culture war themes.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan calls on world to pay attention to India’s ‘fascist, racist Hindu supremacist ideology and leadership’
Indian PM Narendra Modi reportedly rejected the comparison in a Monday phone conversation with US President Donald Trump
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday likened the Indian government to that of Nazi Germany in comments that represented the latest escalation in tensions between the two rivals that have been sent into overdrive over the disputed territory of Kashmir since India invaded the region in early August.
"India has been captured, as Germany had been captured by Nazis, by a fascist, racist Hindu Supremacist ideology and leadership," tweeted Khan. "This threatens 9 million Kashmiris under siege in [India-Occupied Kashmir] for over two weeks which should have sent alarm bells ringing across the world with U.N. Observers being sent there."
RNC’s Ronna McDaniels scorched for calling Elizabeth Warren a ‘liar’: ‘Every word Trump utters is a lie’
The Republican National Committee chairwoman faced swift backlash for calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) a liar for claiming Native American ancestry.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly slurred Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock claims about her background, and the Democratic presidential candidate apologized Monday to Native American tribal leaders for any harm she had caused by promoting DNA test results to prove native ancestry generations ago.
RNC chair Ronna McDaniel gleefully mocked the Democratic presidential candidate.
Elizabeth Warren by the numbers:
