Somali Muslim Charged After Trying to Run Over Jews Outside Synogogue



A Somali Muslim man was charged with assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly attempting to run over Jews outside a synagogue in Los Angeles on Friday night.

“Los Angeles police are investigating an incident Friday night as a potential hate crime after a Somali man, 32-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Abdi, attempted to run down worshipers standing outside a Hancock Park synagogue,” according to one report.

The report said that Abdi has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with a “hate crime specification.” He reportedly yelled anti-Semitic slurs, including “f******” Jews!” during his onslaught.

LAPD confirmed the arrest Monday night, saying that “Hate has not home in Los Angeles.”

The victims of the attack were leaving the synagogue at the time of the attack. Adbi then reportedly drove through a stop sign and crashed into an oncoming vehicle, which was caught on home surveillance video. A bystander photographed a Koran on the dashboard of Abdi’s vehicle, according to CBS. No one was seriously injured.

Abdi is currently being held on $55,000 bail.

President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App

The app has serious spying concerns.



President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.

The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.

As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.

TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously spoken of security concerns involving the Chinese app. Microsoft had recently offered to purchase the app from its parent company, but the surveillance and security surrounding it appear to have shelved such a possibility for now.

There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
