Cops: Student made up campus attack
Chicago Tribune ^ | October 17 | Russell Working

Posted on 10/18/2008 10:06:07 AM PDT by Mount Athos

A Muslim student who said a masked gunman assaulted her after he wrote anti-Muslim slurs in a women's restroom at Elmhurst College has been arrested for filing a false police report, officials said today.

A week after the incident roiled the small college, Elmhurst Police Chief Steve Neubauer said officers had cited Safia Z. Jilani, 19, of Oak Brook, on a single count of filing a false police report. Filing a false police report is a Class 4 felony, punishable by one to three years in prison.

The announcement -- made jointly by Elmhurst Police, the college and the DuPage County state's attorneys office -- concluded there was no merit to her complaint.

"The totality of all the evidence, and interviews with staff and students at the college ... concluded that this incident never happened," Neubauer said in a phone interview.

Jilani's report followed several weeks of tension on campus that began when some students allegedly called anti-Muslim slurs at students protesting the treatment of U.S. captives at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.

As officials at the private college affiliated with the United Church of Christ last Friday called the incident a hate crime, hundreds of students rallied to show solidarity with their Muslim peers, who constitute about 25 of the school's 3,300 students.

The college beefed up security, including foot and car patrols by Elmhurst police, and campus security offered to escort Muslim students around the campus.

So what do you think? She just didn’t have enough to do that day?

Kinda reminds me of a recent incident where a reporter heard someone yell “kill him” at a McCain rally. Manufacturing stories to promote a political view.

We need false hate-crime claim laws, with penalties on the claimant similar to a conviction on the corresponding actual offense.

There’s a lot of this going around. Look at the whining by the Commie ‘RATS about the McCain/Palin rallies. DemocRATS are whinyass cowards, liars and just un-American scumbags. Edwards was right. There are TWO AMERICAS and that’s the problem. There are Americans and then there are freeloading scumbags that live in this country only for the free ride.

But it's OK because it brings much needed attention to the epidemic of violent hate crimes committed every day against Muslim college students. Or something like that...

Political Correctness®©™ dictates that the implicitly racist question of why she would be enrolled at such a school will never be asked.

It also dictates avoiding the larger question of "what does such affiliation mean?", given that so many religiously "affiliated" schools (although I know little about this one) have given over to a completely secular humanist curriculum.

The NEXT step should be to send her a bill for the increased campus security, the investigation, and dismiss her from the college. Typical freeloader behavior to leave a mess for someone else’s family to pay for in the form of higher tuition!

And FWIW, the Club Gitmo crew are treated better than anybody else in the Federal prison system, including the “country clubs”.

Ding! We have a winner.

Hate crime, hate speech, hate thoughts. I’m sure the left will shut down Free Republic, Rush Limbaugh, Everything That IS Good, etc, as soon as they can, while exempting everything they say and do. That’s called Regulation - I mean Totalitarianism.

Mission accomplisted. Just as you suggested, the phony "kill him" yell at the McCain rally got a day's worth of pontificating from the MSM talking heads.

Hate crime and hate speech laws will be the new "Smith Act" anti sedition laws under the Obama Nation.

Learned this stunt from American and European jews, who for years throughout the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s would ‘vandalize’ their own cemetaries, homes, places of worship, etc., thus providing compelling ‘evidence’ of anti-Semitism. Amazing how it comes back around.

Hate Crime Hoaxes

Claremont Hate Crime Called Hoax
LA Times (FR thread) | March 17. 2004 | Joy Buchanan, Kristina Sauerwein and Stuart Silverstein

A week after a reported campus hate crime drew national attention, sparked protests and shut down the prestigious Claremont Colleges, police on Wednesday called the incident a hoax staged by a professor who slashed tires, shattered windows and spray-painted racist graffiti on her own car.

Claremont McKenna College psychology professor Kerri Dunn, who had told police that her car was vandalized as she spoke at a March 9 forum on racism, was identified by two eyewitnesses as the person who damaged the auto, authorities said Wednesday.




Professor Kerri Dunn vandalized her own car and then led "Stop The Hate" rallies on campus.

Guess who demanded the first Hate Crime Laws in the USA be passed.

This is how they do it, and how they’ve done it fullbore since 9-11. And you can BET that an Obama Presidency will see this stuff enshrined as Hate Crime;it will be “understood” that it has no business being investigated.CAIR will also open offices in many more cities, and get US taxpaper funding.And the crushing irony of it is JUST THAT-—his emboldening of these cultural atmospherics well very well exacerbate race/religious war on some level. Until we all get rounded up, that is.

Instrumental in founding the NAACP and the ACLU, but hey, we’re not allowed to say anything about it. The 60’s era radicalism was heavily driven by this group, but now that the Frankenstein has boomeranged on them and is threatening them, many come running to our side. After undermining our side for decades.

“The number of incidents were staggering”

I think I can remember one or two incident and I’m not sure if the people involved did it for politics or were found to be emotionally deranged. At any rate it is incumbent on you to state your case when you make a charge like that.

Just what I expected from you.

As I recall, you're real good at making defamatory statements and then refusing to back them up.

Why should I make a single move to back up your unsubstantiated claim? You made the statement -- now back it up, or continue tolook like the anti-Jewish bigot you appear to be.

This student had just come from a campus meeting in support of the Islamic terrorists held at GITMO. She is a de facto fighter in the global jihad, mounting disinformation/ propaganda operations at the heart of the Great Satan. Unfortunately she was born here and cannot be deported. I hope the ICE looks closely at her immigrant parents: she may have learned her support for terrorism at home. She went to an Islamic high school. Unfortunately, she will be out in time to vote for Hussein Obama.

Actually raptop29 has some validity in pointing out that the mostly Jewish lawyers in the ACLU have done immense damage to this nation.

Remember,too,that a devout Orthodox Jew by definition rejects Jesus Christ as Savior,believing Him to have been just another fraud or perhaps self-deluded messiah.

So fighting against Christian influence in the nation actually makes sense from that viewpoint..

Muslims also reject Jesus Christ but apparently regard him as a legitimate prophet,just not as important as Mohammed.

What really perplexes me is why so many Jews in history have promoted socialism ,especially seeing as how it was socialists who murdered millions of Jews(along with millions of Christians,and the odd thousands of Roma,etc.)

(repost from a previous thread on this FAKE HATE CRIME)


Elmhurst Student Faked Attack (Obama Constituent)

Cool. Less than “six degrees of separation” between this Muslima
and Senator Barrack Hussein Obama.

And (as Glenn Beck would say) here’s how I got there.

1. Muslima attends Elmhurst College
2. Elmhurst College is affiliated with The United Church of Christ
3. Obama (used to) attend a United Church of Christ congregation,
the one where he apparently didn’t learn a thing from 20 years
of sermons by Rev. Wright.

Elmhurst College
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmhurst_College
Elmhurst College was founded in 1871. It is a private four-year institution affiliated with the United Church of Christ.

United Church of Christ
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Church_of_Christ
scroll down to section titled:
Barack Obama’s membership in the UCC
(interesting read on how the IRS has been giving the UCC a pass
on that separation of church and state; I don’t think there’s a
mention that Obmama withdrew membership from his old congregation)

Remember,too,that a devout Orthodox Jew by definition rejects Jesus Christ as Savior,believing Him to have been just another fraud or perhaps self-deluded messiah. So fighting against Christian influence in the nation actually makes sense from that viewpoint..

And Christians believe the opposite -- and fight just as hard against Jewish influence -- even sometimes to the extent of posting unsubstantiate, inflammatory statements, and then refusing to provide sourses to back them up.

Muslims also reject Jesus Christ but apparently regard him as a legitimate prophet,just not as important as Mohammed.

That's about the only point I have ever been able to come up with in their favor.

What really perplexes me is why so many Jews in history have promoted socialism ,especially seeing as how it was socialists who murdered millions of Jews(along with millions of Christians,and the odd thousands of Roma,etc.)

Now, your having said all of that, how about telling me what part of that has anything to do with raptor's statement.... :

"Learned this stunt from American and European jews, who for years throughout the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s would ‘vandalize’ their own cemetaries, homes, places of worship, etc., thus providing compelling ‘evidence’ of anti-Semitism. Amazing how it comes back around."

... and then refusing to provide any proof whatsoever.

If that is so, why are you bothering to reply to my inquiry for proof of your scurrilous statement at all?

... especially when your knee-jerk response is the typical liberal one

So to you, my asking for the truth is being a liberal? You had better go back over to Du or Kos; you're definitely on the wrong forum here.

... to call people an anti-semite, a bigot, a homophobe, a racist, etc.

Whoa up, junior -- I haven't called you anything -- yet. But you're sure making it easy for me if I decide to do so.

But I can tell you this, I have paid far closer attention to all of this over the years than you have, clearly.

That is a silly, totally untrue assumption, but that is off the subject

And my original post was accurate, and a fair shot to take.

Then why are you making such a fool of yourself by accusing me of things I haven't done and what I have or have not done over the years, by refusing to give the first smidgin of proof of you currilous statement?

Or aren't you aware of the fact that that is usually the first indication that a person is a liar?

A Muslim student who said a masked gunman assaulted her after he wrote anti-Muslim slurs in a women's restroom at Elmhurst College has been arrested for filing a false police report, officials said today.

Let me guess, the cops after their investigation found no visible signs of physical assault...Her watching him write anti-Muslim slurs in the women's restroom, then waiting to be assaulted by him was met with laughs? Did it turn out the written slurs matched her hand writing? Did she have marker ink left on her fingers...Did she fail to notice the hallways or exists and entries to the campus had security cameras that never revealed the person she described?

I love when people get caught up in their BS.
