    Talking Muslim student attacked at Elmhurst College

    Muslim student attacked at Elmhurst College
    HATE CRIME * Slurs, swastikas scrawled in her locker

    October 11, 2008
    BY DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter drozek@suntimes.com

    A Muslim student attacked at Elmhurst College in what school officials described as a hate crime had found anti-Islamic slurs and a swastika scrawled in her locker a week earlier, police and students said Friday.

    The 19-year-old sophomore told police a masked, male attacker struck her in the head with a handgun about 8:30 p.m. Thursday after she entered a restroom in the school's Schaible Science Center. She suffered a concussion.

    Threatening graffiti -- "Kill the Muslims" -- was written on a mirror in the restroom, students and police said.

    Earlier Thursday, the victim had spoken at a demonstration called to denounce the anti-Islamic slurs and swastika she had discovered on Oct. 2 in her locker, school officials and students said. Among the slurs was the phrase "Die Muslims."

    Both cases are being investigated as hate crimes, Elmhurst College spokesman Charley Henderson said.

    "They have some common threads," Henderson said.

    The victim -- who wears an Islamic head scarf -- and two other Muslim students had been verbally harassed and taunted on Sept. 18 during a campus protest calling for the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, friends said.

    The Thursday night attack triggered an hourlong lockdown at the college while police searched the campus -- and prompted hundreds of students to rally again Friday to protest the incident and call for unity.

    "It inspires me to know I have a strong community I can rely on," Soofia Ahmed, president of the college's Muslim Student Association, said during the rally on the school's quad.

    Officials at the 3,300-student private college -- which has about 30 Muslim students -- denounced the attack while promising to increase security on the campus.

    Those mean racist white Republicans, causing trouble for the poor little girl.


    UPDATE




    :lmao:

    Police: Student made up story of being attacked


    October 17, 2008
    FROM SUN-TIMES NEWS GROUP WIRE REPORTS

    A Muslim student who claimed she was attacked at Elmhurst College in what school officials described as a hate crime has now been charged with making up the story.

    Safia Z. Jilani, 19, of Oak Brook, told police that on Oct. 9, a masked, male attacker struck her in the head with a handgun after she entered a restroom in the Schaible Science Center on campus, according to a release from Elmhurst police.

    Police found threatening graffiti -- "Kill the Muslims" -- written on a mirror in the restroom, students and police said. Earlier Thursday, the victim had spoken at a demonstration called to denounce anti-Islamic slurs and a swastika she had discovered Oct. 2 on her locker, school officials said.

    But late Friday afternoon, Elmhurst police announced that a weeklong investigation determined the assault never occurred; there was no gunman; and Jilani was arrested on a warrant for filing a false police report, a Class 4 felony punishable by up to 3 years in prison.

    Bond was set at $10,000 for Jilani, who posted $1,000 and was released, according to DuPage County State’s Attorney’s office spokesman Paul Darrah. Her next court hearing is Nov. 17 at 8:30 a.m. before Judge Kathryn Creswell.

    The initial report of the attack triggered a lockdown at the college while police searched the campus and prompted hundreds of students to rally again the following day to protest the incident.

    Officials at the 3,300-student private college -- which has about 30 Muslim students -- denounced the attack and promised to increase security on campus, including offers of rides for Muslim students to and from classes.



    Typical liberal fashion, create phony allegations to stir up the local libtards and start blaming it on the whites. Another Obama community organizer that got caught.

    Not in the least, being white is easy.

    Typical neocon state-worshipper - implicitly trusting the police's version of the story.

    Yeah, there's no way her story could have been true - people in America are so tolerant and respectful of Muslims.

    This is just more proof of discrimination against Muslims.

    The police are just immediately charging the victim of this heinous assault with a felony to coverup their inability to find the assaulter, or in an attempt to protect him. There was absolutely zilch evidence at all that the report was false.

    Get over it, she got caught. If she was truly a victim where is CAIR? They would have been protesting in a heartbeat at her arrest. How about the ACLU, or Gloria Allred? Calling Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson!! No answer!

    Updated 11/14: Elmhurst College student indicted in hate crime hoax case

    November 14, 2008
    By JEFF DANNA

    An Elmhurst College student was indicted Thursday by a DuPage County grand jury for allegedly falsely claiming she was the victim of a violent attack on campus last month.

    Safia Jilani, 19, of Oak Brook was indicted on one count of obstructing justice for filing a false police report, said Paul Darrah, spokesman for DuPage County State's Attorney Joseph E. Birkett. The charge is a Class 4 felony, and if she is found guilty, she could receive probation or a sentence of one to three years in jail.

    Darrah said Jilani has retained an attorney, and she is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 a.m. Monday in courtroom 4014 of the DuPage County Courthouse in Wheaton.

    Prosecutors said Jilani told police her assailant beat her with a pistol about 8:30 p.m. Oct. 9 after she entered a washroom in the Schaible Science Center, where the masked man had scribbled racial slurs on the walls.

    One week earlier, she reported finding anti-Muslim slogans and a swastika written inside of her locker. She said the incident prompted her to speak at the Oct. 9 diversity rally, where she read a poem advocating peace and understanding despite the actions against her.

    Police investigated both reports as a hate crime, which caused a stir on campus, but they ended up arresting Jilani one week later after accusing her of making up both allegations to garner attention.

    A rally was held on campus the next day, and students stood up to speak outside the Frick Center, expressing their outrage about the alleged hate crime.

    However, after investigating the incident, Elmhurst police arrested Jilani Oct. 17 and charged her with filing a false police report.

    During a news conference Thursday, Elmhurst College President S. Alan Ray said Jilani was no longer enrolled at the school. He said he could not elaborate on why.


    LOL

    Since her arrest, no further incidents have been reported.

    LOL what a dumbass. The lack of evidence to support the claim IS evidence that it's false. What strange logic goes through that little brain of yours!

    I know the resources that were spent trying to find the 'perps', from both the first report and escalating with the 'attack.' The city intends to prosecute to the fullest to recover the costs involved. From what I've heard, the College is also considering suing to be reimbursed for the steps they felt they had to take to keep all safe.
