Star of David Carved on Infidel’s Back in St. Louis

Visit Pajamas Media.

A certain Arab author by the name of Mr. Alaa Alsaegh, an immigrant to the U.S. from Iraq, was attacked on August 14, 2011, by Muslims in the streets of St. Louis, Missouri. They stabbed him and carved a Star of David onto the flesh of his back. His crime? He published an Arabic language poem titled “Tears at the Heart of the Holocaust” on the website The poem expressed his love for the Jewish people and his sorrow over their fate in the Holocaust. The Muslim community in which he lived was outraged by this thought crime. He was called an infidel and received many threats for articulating his taboo feelings for the Jewish people. Alienated from the Muslim community, he continued to write his poetry, which contained the same themes which so upset his fellow Muslims.

In broad daylight and heavy traffic on Aug. 14, Alsaegh paid the price for expressing love for the Jews. And it happened in the streets of St. Louis, right here in the heart of America. Author and courageous freedom fighter Nonie Darwish describes the horrific event:

As he was driving at 10:30 in the morning on Compton St. near Park Ave., a small white car cut him off and hit his car, while another car stopped behind him. The occupants of the cars, some of whom wore security guard-type uniforms, quickly entered Alsaegh’s car, pointing a gun at him. They pushed his upper body down against the steering wheel, stabbed him and pulled off his shirt to expose his back. Then, with a knife, they carved the Star of David on his back while laughing as they recited his pro-Jewish poem.

Alsaegh thought that the perpetrators were Somalis; he was taken to the hospital and the photo of his injury was taken there.

The FBI has concluded that this was a hate crime. Question: apart from the Nonie Darwish article, and a handful of other reports, where exactly is this horrific story of Sharia street justice in America being reported? It is nowhere in the media.

Rodney King became a household name. The inhabitants of one American city rioted over what happened to that man. President Obama quickly reacted to the arrest of Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates and, without knowing the incident’s specifics, accused the police of acting “stupidly.”

    The correct formula ought to be that

    Entire islam is a problem, "moderate islam" is an invention.

    I.e. the entire islam is a problem and existential threat for the civilization, while the "moderate islam" is a propagandist invention in order to wish away the unbearable reality.

    It is regrettably true that some so called "conservatives" ranging from KroutHeader to Ron Foul – all deny the threat of islam and denounce fighters confronting it.

    The only correction for Jamie Glazov:

    Those, who denounce the fighters against islam as extremists while knowing the fighters are right, are prostitutes.

    It has nothing to do with Stockholm Syndrome (for nobody has kidnapped or tormented those political prostitutes). It has everything to do with their dhimmitude and baseness.

    I”m waiting to see how long it will take for this to reach the news if ever. I’ll probably being a pretty long time.

      He did hit it on the head as far as how biased the media is when it comes to hate crime. If this was a muslim that was attacked by some Christians it would probably be world wide news. “Racist Islamphobic America Attacks Muslim Immigrant”. I’m so tired of these dhimi reporters and those in DC who forever have their lips glued to the rear ends of those who want to destroy this country.

    So where is the A.D.L. on this incident? Simply repeating its deadly inaction before and durring WW2. More gun control, affirmative action, diversity, multiculturalism, moral relativism, and abortion on demand. . . Whatever happened to Torah values, Mister Foxman?

      I think that if the ADL would publicly take this poor guy's part, he could be killed by the same community that carved on him.
      Also, what could the ADL do for him? Have his attackers been apprehended and identified? I think not. These people are lawless, they are not typical Americans brought up to respect our laws.

    Have a Muslim attacked in this manner and it would be front page. Jews and their supporters are not going to receive favor from the media in general.

    The violent infighting between newcomers to American cities has always been under-reported.

    Islam is the virus, politicians are the placebo. My .308 is the cure, at least until I exhaust my stash. Then it is up to you to carry on in my stead.

      for ringo phonebone sth: abviously u r a jew, thus u r an islam-hater; let me tell u this: I really hope u find out the truth about what’s really going on on this life,before it’s too little too late, and before u regret all what u said about islam…btw, an ignorant like u, should probably read about islam, and enrich yourself with knowledge, instead of uttering accusations like that…

    The mere branding this poor, Iraqi immigrant as an "infidel," by his community brought this on.
    What kind of people are we bringing into our country? If they came here because they were in jeopardy, they sure have become the "jeopardizers" now!
    The guy is creative, a poet, a man with feelings, I've got to believe he must leave that community and live among freedom-loving Americans.
    That Iraqi community brought all of its primitive beliefs with it.
