4 Muslims arrested for attacking peaceful pro-Israel rally in Los Angeles with weapons
Witnesses said four men in a truck waved pro-Palestinian flags and attacked the pro-Israel demonstrators with sticks. KCAL9′s Kristine Lazar reports investigators say a woman was injured during the alleged assault.
A Homeland Security Officer who witnessed the assault “intervened and an officer-involved (non-hit) shooting occurred,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
The officer has been placed on leave and his weapon seized as evidence while the use-of-force allegation is being investigated.
No injuries were reported in the shooting incident.
Israeli Consul General David Siegel said the standoff is reflective of the current barrage of rocket attacks launched by Islamist terror group Hamas against Israeli citizens.
“All of this is part of a much larger and very dangerous confrontation right now, where Israel faces a brutal terror organization that has fired over 1,000 rockets in the last week,” Siegel said.
The LAPD arrested Mostadafa Hafez, 19, Hassan Kreidieh, 41, Mohammed Elkhatib, 35, and 38-year-old Fadi Obeidallah for assault with a deadly weapon. All but one suspect were free on $30,000 as of Monday morning.
The shooting remains under investigation and the officer was placed on paid administrative leave.
This is not Iraq, or Syria. You cannot attack people rallying peacefully with weapons. If they are immigrants they should be deported for this crime.
Illegal Immigrants Allowed to Fly Commercially Without ID?
The Department of Homeland Security is reportedly allowing undocumented immigrants to board commercial planes with only a “Notice to Appear” document. The paperwork is printed on computer paper and can easily be reproduced.
Illegal immigrants are being “released on their own recognizance” and later “allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” a National Border Patrol Council spokesman reportedly told Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby.
Hector Garza, identified as NBPC’s Local 2455 spokesman, expressed serious concern that illegal immigrants are only required to show “paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer” in order to board planes used by the American public for domestic travel.
“The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing,” he said. “They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.”
The TSA said in a statement: “A Notice to Appear, issued by the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), is not an acceptable form of ID at the TSA checkpoint. For Mexican nationals without a passport or identification who are returning to Mexico, they can be issued a Certificate of Presumption of Nationality of Mexico (CPNM) by the Government of Mexico.”
Fox News contributor Bo Dietl reacted to the news on Fox and Friends this morning. He explained that illegal immigrants are allowed to board planes without so much as a photo ID.
Dietl said ICE and the TSA should go on strike to protest the policy.
“When are we going to close our borders down and protect the American citizens?” he said. “I am really upset about the fact that people can board planes without a photo ID. It’s ridiculous.”
