CAIR Seeks Hate Crime Charges After Muslim Called ‘Terrorist’ at Calif. Costco. Man allegedly tried to hit woman with his car when she tried to take photo of license plate.

(SACRAMENTO, CA, 3/24/14) – The Sacramento Valley chapter of the (Muslim Brotherhood front group) Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SV), today called on local law enforcement authorities to consider hate crime charges against a man who allegedly called a Muslim woman a “terrorist” and tried to hit her with his car.

According to the woman, who wears an Islamic headbag (hijab), the incident took place on Saturday afternoon as she was loading her car with purchases from a Costco in Stockton, Calif. She reported to CAIR-SV that another car pulled into the parking space next to hers, and as a white male got out of his car, he shouted “terrorist” at her in a threatening tone. When she questioned whether he had just called her a terrorist, he allegedly replied, “Yes really, you terrorist! Go to hell!”

The woman went back into Costco to file a complaint. While she was waiting for security to arrive, the man came out of the store. As the woman tried to take a picture of his license plate for the police report, he backed quickly out of the parking space and allegedly tried to hit her with his car. She moved to the side of his car and he reportedly said to her, “What, do you want my name and number too so you can call CAIR because your feelings are hurt?” He then drove away.

The woman praised Costco staff for their actions in her defense.

“We urge local and state law enforcement authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of this troubling incident and to consider bringing hate crime charges against the alleged perpetrator,” said CAIR-SV Executive Director Basim Elkarra. “Those who target Americans because of their race or religion must feel the full weight of the law.”
