Amine Aouam, a Muslim Philadelphia resident, was brutally attacked allegedly for simply speaking in Arabic. Aouam told reporters that while talking to a friend late at night in a Moroccan dialect, a nearby woman began staring at him. He greeted her by saying “good evening” in Arabic and then walked away with his friend. One of the woman’s male companions then confronted Aouam while shouting “stop that shit!” as another man allegedly sucker-punched him from behind. Aouam was knocked unconscious after he fell to the ground, waking up in the hospital hours later. Police are investigating the incident and reviewing security camera footage of the attack.
