Human rights activists called the killing of a 6-year-old Palestinian in the United States a nightmare

Human rights activists from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) strongly condemned the hate killing of a 6-year-old Palestinian refugee in the United States. The attack was “our worst nightmare,” CAIR said in a statement.
The murder took place in the American state of Illinois. The owner of the house where the family of the deceased lived, stabbed the child 26 times. The boy died at the hospital, and his 32-year-old mother was also injured but is in stable condition, the Will County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
“Detectives were able to determine that both victims of this brutal attack were targeted by the suspect because they were Muslim and because of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East involving Hamas and the Israelis,” the sheriff’s office said, adding that the killing occurred about 40 miles west of Chicago. Authorities said the woman managed to call 911 after being attacked by the owner of the house, 71-year-old Joseph Chuba.
“He knocked on the door and tried to strangle her, saying, ‘You Muslims have to die,'” Ahmed Rehab, head of the Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told reporters, referring to text messages the woman sent to the slain boy’s father, who was hospitalized. beds (
