“We both scrambled in different directions so he slammed on his brakes and missed us thank God,” the victim said.
Los Angeles police over the weekend arrested a man who was allegedly caught on video repeatedly trying to run over two men near a synagogue.
Authorities are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime, CBS Los Angeles reported.
Video from a security camera shows the driver apparently trying to hit two men dressed in clothing typically worn by Orthodox Jews on Shabbat. The driver, who has been identified as 32-year-old Mohammed Mohammed, reversed and tried to hit them again, according to the local outlet.
The man reportedly insulted a group of Jewish people leaving the synagogue before he got into his vehicle and attempted to run them over, the Los Angeles Police Department told the local NBC affiliate. More
According to CBSLA, a witness snapped a photo of a Koran on his dashboard, and although no one says the driver — Mohamed Mohamed — verbalized his own religion, folks in this community say targeting someone else for their religion is always a hate crime. “I think this is just a much more violent, scary world than we all though it was,” said neighbor Michael Schwartz.

Why do Jewish liberals always vote democrat year after year after year, thereby voting to destroy the very Country that gave you a refuge? Stupidity has real-life consequences.
