that America should increase Muslim immigration because exposure to America will make Muslims see what a wonderful country this is and thus cure them of their extremism. Back on planet Earth, a female Saudi student in Florida has been arrested for spitting at white customers in a WalMart, which she said she did because a higher power told her to.
Saudi student charged with hate crime after ‘spitting on WalMart customers—because Americans are pushing us around’
A Saudi Arabian student is facing hate crime charges after she allegedly spat on several ‘white people’ in her local Walmart because a ‘higher authority’ made her do it.
Exposure to Americans didn’t make her love them.
Nuha Mohammed Al-Doaifi, 21, an engineering student at Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, was arrested on a charge of misdemeanour battery at the Palm Bay WalMart.
But the hate-crime determination could mean that the charge may be elevated to third-degree felony.
Authorities say that Al-Doaifi spat in the face of a WalMart customer who was trying to help her after the student was butting her trolley into the exit door of the supermarket.
She also allegedly spat at another customer who ‘got too close to her’, but the spittle managed to miss him.
When she was arrested, she told officers that she was spitting on ‘white people’ because a ‘higher authority’ made her do it and that ‘Americans are pushing us around.’
Yvonne Martinez, spokeswoman for the Palm Bay Police Department, said: ‘Her actions were directed at random people based on their ethnicity, and that’s according to her own statement.’
The incident happened about 1pm on Sunday as Al-Doaifi hit a door with her cart as she was going into the store at 1040 Malabar Road, a report states.
She was with her 15-month-old son, who was sitting in a shopping cart. An item on the cart had saliva on it, an officer wrote.
Terry Rakowski, a 39-year-old resident of Palm Bay, says the incident occurred after she tried to help the woman, who was wearing a religious head covering and pink burka, enter the local WalMart.
She told Florida Today: ‘She just spit all over me. All I was trying to do was tell her she was coming in through the out door. She was just ramming it into the door.
‘She then looked at me and said, “Yes I did,” then walked off. This really bothered me last night. You just don’t know what she might be capable of.’
The state Department of Children and Families turned the boy over to his father when his mother was taken to the Brevard County Jail.
The father told officers that Al-Doaifi spat at an FIT professor two or three weeks ago, they said.
The school’s dean notified the Saudi Arabian Embassy, which counselled her, Martinez said.
Police have initiated procedures to send her back to Saudi Arabia.
