According to the FBI’s annual report, so-called “hate crimes” against Muslims have gone down again. Conversely, crimes by Muslims against Americans – particularly Jews and Christians – appear to be rising across the U.S. Of course it would be Islamophobic to track such statistics.
Osama E. El Hannouny admitted to slashing tires of 19 vehicles at two churches because he didn’t like Christians.
Did he learn that at the Islamic school identified in the t-shirt he’s wearing in the mug shot? Or maybe he just played in the Muslim basketball league the school sponsors.
Charges have been upgraded against a man who allegedly slashed tires of multiple vehicles at churches in Palos Hills last year because he didn’t like Christians.
Osama E. El Hannouny, 25, was initially arrested Nov. 17, 2019, and charged with 14 counts of criminal damage to property, according to Palos Hills police.
The charges against him were upgraded Thursday to 14 counts of hate crime, police said. He allegedly admitted to slashing tires of 19 vehicles at two churches because he didn’t like Christians.
He was released on a personal recognize bond and electronic monitoring Thursday, police said. His next court date was set for Feb. 18.
