Is this terrorism? In a harrowing incident in Fresno, California, a Muslim man slammed into the vehicle of a veteran who served in the Afghanistan War, which was done in the name of Allah. The man also said that it was in response to Donald Trump’s treatment of people of color. This was intentional.
The alleged attack began when Scott Alcala was driving to San Jose to play golf with his dad when Ameer Abbaf Fakhraldin slammed into him at 100 miles per hour. Wendi Lane of Fox 26 News has more:
Alcala said, “I saw the suburban coming right at me about to T-bone right into the driver door and I thought that was it. A second later I turned my head and just smashed into the barrier.”
Alcala says he and the other driver were miraculously able to get out of their cars without hitting anyone else.
Alcala said, “The off-duty police officer went to talk to the other driver in his vehicle and he said, 'Are you alright? That was way too fast,' and (the driver) said 'I did it on purpose. It was in the name of Allah.'"
The police report says driver Ameer Abbaf Fakhraldin told police the collision was caused by Donald Trump's improper treatment of minorities, and by Allah and other people's lack of faith in him. Fakhraldin estimated his speed was 200 miles per hour. He also told police he caused the crash by using psychic / telekinetic powers to control the steering. The officer at the scene said the driver showed apathy and neglected interest.
This is absolutely insane, and Acala is lucky to be alive. Swift justice should be handed down to Fakhradlin and it only shows, sadly, that we all need to be more vigilant…even on our own soil against would-be attackers.
