Safia Jilani Joins the Hate Hoaxer Club
How awful — yet another militant moonbat has fallen victim to a hate crime:
A Muslim student attacked at Elmhurst College in what school officials described as a hate crime had found anti-Islamic slurs and a swastika scrawled in her locker a week earlier, police and students said Friday.
The 19-year-old sophomore told police a masked, male attacker struck her in the head with a handgun about 8:30 p.m. Thursday after she entered a restroom in the school's Schaible Science Center. She suffered a concussion.
Threatening graffiti — "Kill the Muslims" — was written on a mirror in the restroom, students and police said.
Earlier Thursday, the victim had spoken at a demonstration called to denounce the anti-Islamic slurs and swastika she had discovered on Oct. 2 in her locker, school officials and students said. Among the slurs was the phrase "Die Muslims." […] The victim — who wears an Islamic head scarf — and two other Muslim students had been verbally harassed and taunted on Sept. 18 during a campus protest calling for the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, friends said.
The Thursday night attack triggered an hourlong lockdown at the college while police searched the campus — and prompted hundreds of students to rally again Friday to protest the incident and call for unity. […] Officials at the 3,300-student private college — which has about 30 Muslim students — denounced the attack while promising to increase security on the campus.
Swastikas, handguns, Islamophobia, Club Gitmo, noble demonstrators violently oppressed — if Big Oil were involved, we'd have every base covered. Naturally this appalling incident sparked a righteous rally:
What originally was conceived as a silent sit-in to protest Thursday's assault on campus turned into a massive rally Friday afternoon on the Elmhurst College Mall, with students calling on others to stand up against hate.
"I still feel unsafe on the campus I call my home. I've called myself an American since the day I was born in Chicago," said 21-year-old junior Soofia Ahmed, a Muslim student who is good friends with the victim.
"I thank you for your support right now, but I do feel scared," she told the crowd as she fought back tears. "I'm terrified out of my wits to stand up here right now and tell you how I feel."
[…] The lawn behind the Frick Center filled with students, who sat among rows of rainbow-striped flags that had been planted the day before to symbolize National Coming Out Day.
Other students took turns on the megaphone delivering passionate calls to stand up against the person who committed Thursday night's violent attack on a Muslim student in the bathroom of the Schaible Science Center.
Some non-Muslim female students even wore headscarves to show their support for the victim, who Ahmed identified as Elmhurst College junior Safia Jilani.
New college President S. Alan Ray addressed the crowd, too, thanking everyone for attending.
"What happened last night was despicable," he said.
It was despicable, all right — a despicable hoax:
Elmhurst police announced that a weeklong investigation determined the assault never occurred; there was no gunman; and Jilani was arrested on a warrant for filing a false police report, a Class 4 felony punishable by up to 3 years in prison. Bond was set at $10,000 for Jilani, who posted $1,000 and was released, according to DuPage County State's Attorney's office spokesman Paul Darrah.
At least Jilani has lots of company. Other members of the hate hoaxer club include Tawana Brawley, Crystal Gail Mangum, Kerri Dunn, Leah Miller, Trinity International University, Ahmad Saad Nasim, Floyd Elliot, and Sarah Marshak.
Don't hold your breath waiting for President Ray to speak at a rally opposing mendacious left-wing propaganda. No doubt few Elmhurst students even know the whole thing was a farce.

Ya beat me to it D+M... LOL
I grew up in Elmhurst. It's an upscale far western suburb of Chicago. My parents 1500 square foot 3 bedroom was bought for over $200,000 just to tear it down and build an $800,000+ monster house on the lot. It's always been a bastion of liberal-think but it was countered by church going, Boy Scout supporting, conservatives. Elmhurst College is just another liberal arts cesspool of libtards. The Chicago political disease has fully engulfed the burbs.

No, we'd also need to throw in those mean old Christians and maybe some racist cops for every base to be covered.

I went to UCLA and there was a huge Muslim student contingent. Many of the women wore the hijab and they prayed 5 times a day and all that much to everyone going about their business. This "persecution" would be politically conventient for liberals to lambaste whoever they want, but it just doesn't happen. They need to stop the BS.

Don't worry. I'm sure they'll soon come up with another reason to sit among rows of rainbow striped flags.

"They need to stop the BS."
We all know why they won't, leutinant. But SOMEBODY really needs to stop this bullspit.

Clearly Muslim student Safia Jilani committed a "hate crime" to "raise awareness" of hate crimes... that just don't seem to be happening. It seems to me we should "raise awareness" of hate crime hoaxes with some appropriate prosectutions for the very hate crimes they are staging.

Who the hell do you all think you are? You don't know the full story to what happened?? NO WHERE did it say that she admitted to the fact that she " fabricated" the story. There are hate crimes against muslims ...there ALWAYS has been. So she ESPACIALLY doesn't have to " raise awareness" ... cause it has already been happening. I believe that there is something VERY wrong with this whole issue and on Nov 17...i think we'll find out the REAL truth of what happend that night...

What happens on November 17th?

The news report says " . . .the assault never occurred." That sounds to me like the cops had reasonable cause, to say the least, to charge the (muslim) hoaxer with filing a false police report. The Moonbattery story nowhere presumes the ultimate criminal guilt of this woman, nor does any comment posted prior to that of 2*R's (it's called "projection," 2*R, and you're clearly guilty of it).
She may be found guilty of this Class 4 felony, or she may be acquitted -- time will tell. Strange, though, that virtually every so-called "hate crime" against muslims in this country (the Flying Imams, etc.) is perpetrated by muslims. Hoax upon scam upon fabrication (sure as hell looks like that's what this is, but, as noted, time will tell), all brought about by muslims, and sometimes even, by muslims against other muslims.
Please state the facts of the latest ACTUAL hate crime against a muslim, 2*R; just one example (and I ain't talkin' about someone, who happens to be a muslim, being the victim of, say, a robbery; I can assure you, that happens to EVERY ethnic group, to adherents of every religion, no matter which). You brought it up, so spill, bud -- all the dirt on that latest HATE crime, please.
Waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting . . .

I'm sorry but do you know Jilani personally? No, i DIDN'T THINK SO. That's is the difference between us BUD, I KNOW WHO SHE IS. lemme assure you that this girl is NOT a muslim woman that would start any "hoax" especially about " raising awareness about hate crimes against muslims."
I'll just be very clear about this...I know for a fact that a "piece of the puzzle" is missing to this story...and NO..she isn't guilty.
I just don't appreciate how there are so many brainless people commenting all over the internet "judging" who safia is, and how she's on " THE HOAXER CLUB!!?!?"
I love how you play stupid with me jc14, SOME people seem to thrive on attacking muslims and get mad at the people who are "civil" to them??? c'mon Jc14...would it really surprise you that there are people who "hate" on muslims?? that there are " hate crimes toward muslims?" if so...take a look at this...

i agree with 2*r and as they just wrote above, i don't think its right to judge someone if we don't know them personally because she could have a mental illness or something i heard their gonna get her tested, so i think we should wait for all the facts before running our mouths and making assumptions about all muslims are bad over one girls personal actions.

Who said all muslims are bad? Did I miss something here?
No, I didn't. Nobody in this post has said that- other than you trolls. Begone from here and go play World of Warcraft or whatever you do when you're not trying (in vain) to aggravate decent, hardworking, respectable people, who hold real jobs, have real thoughts, and actually have a clue what they're talking about.

Yeah, what happens on November 17th? A date for the "REAL TRUTH" to be released? That doesn't sound like there's any pre-planning or fabrication involved at all... hmmm. Curious.

And one more thing, kids. There is an old adage you will grow to understand someday.
Basically, when you are young, if you don't think, act, and vote in a liberal fashion- you have no heart.
But when you are older, if you don't think, act, and vote in a more conservative manner- you have no brain.
Someday you too will understand. And for your sake, I hope it's not when it's already too late.
