The United States of America is supposed to be a nation where all are welcome regardless of race, color, or creed. Diversity is what makes America strong, but some violent racist bigots believe otherwise. Recently in Philadelphia an islamophobic man threw a fire bomb into a car of a person he believed to be Muslim. Why? Because the man hates Muslims, and likely considers himself a patriot.
The despicable incident happened in the early morning, with witnesses saying the individual who threw the bomb shouted, “There you go, Muslim!”
A man was inside the vehicle when the bomb exploded, who was seriously injured. One witness tweeted, “Heard a huge explosion. Didn’t know what it was. Then heard a man yelling saying his skin was burning.” The witness went on to say, “Then kept hearing loud pops so I went to the door. Neighbours were helping the man because his skin was burning. He lost some of it.” and “Went to the corner and saw the whole car on fire.”
Another witness said they could not confirm if the man who threw the bomb said anything, “I don’t know if what was said was true or not but he said that’s what he told the firemen. His face, arm, hands, legs all burned.”
Police are currently hunting for the cowardly man who committed this vicious attack. If any individuals are aware of any information which may help the Philadelphia police they are urged to contact them immediatley.
