Student protesting Islamophobia sparks outrage by ‘throwing away’ thousands of flags honoring 9/11 victims
A student leader in Missouri is making national headlines after allegedly tossing thousands of American flags planted in honor of those who had fallen on 9/11 at his university.
What he did: Fadel Alkilani, who attends Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL), was filmed collecting the flags planted at the school’s Mudd Field on Saturday morning. The video shows him carrying them in multiple plastic bags before walking away in an unknown direction.
Editor’s Note: A Starbucks spokesperson told NextShark that this branch is licensed by Target which operates and employs the baristas. This article has been updated to correct the headline.
A Muslim woman felt “belittled” and “humiliated” after a barista from Target Starbucks wrote “ISIS” on her cup.
Vandals broke into and destroyed an Indian restaurant, leaving racist and xenophobic messages all over the walls in a hate crime attack in New Mexico.
A female employee of a Taco Bell branch in St. Louis, Missouri, was recently fired after spewing an Islamophobic rant towards a Muslim customer at a drive-thru.
The incident happened at around 1 a.m. on Tuesday when the man, identified as Tarek Hamdan, who had been fasting all day for Ramadan came to Taco Bell for his pre-dawn meal. However, he ended up having a long 25-minute debate with the employee who insisted that “ALL Muslims are terrorists.”
