According to a recent report by The Oregonian, a Portland man was arrested earlier this week for threatening to violently attack a local deli and its staff. Abdalah Mohamed allegedly erupted in an anti-Semitic rant against the store’s owner, saying he would “blow up your store in the name of Allah!”
Court documents assert the 19-year-old Kenya native referred to the deli’s owner as a “Jew” and “Israeli,” and at one point promised to “send my guys to shoot up your store.”

A clerk testified Mohamed wanted to purchase a single cigarette when he entered the establishment last summer, prosecutors confirm. When he was informed they were only sold by the pack, he reportedly demanded to speak to owner Iraj Rafai, who explained the store’s policy.
At that point, Mohamed’s tirade escalated as he allegedly spat at Rafai and told him his allies “take care of people like you.”

While police were at the location investigating the complaint, he allegedly called to continue his rant via telephone. He was charged with two counts of second-degree intimidation, for which he has pleaded not guilty. He is also facing an unrelated charge of cocaine possession.
@creepingsharia If he is found guilty, sounds like he will be, he should be permanently deported. NO re-entry EVER!
