WATCH: Muslim Man In Nebraska Arrested In Hate Crime Against Lesbian Sister

tuma-marksA lesbian woman in Lincoln, Nebraska was attacked Thursday with a crowbar by two men, one of whom was her brother who believed she was bringing shame upon their Muslim family, TV station KLKN reports.

Ahmed Tuma, 20, became angry with his sister, whose name hasn’t been revealed, when she announced she is in a relationship with a female. Lincoln police say that Tuma and his friend Nathan Marks, also 20-years-old, tried to attack Tuma’s sister with a crowbar. The couple escaped into their car, but Tuma repeatedly hit the vehicle with the crowbar. Tuma also made verbal threats to kill his sister. After the couple drove away, Tuma and Marks followed in Mark’s vehicle, ramming them from behind in an attempt to push them into oncoming traffic.

The women escaped with no injuries. Tuma was arrested for attempted 2nd degree assault, criminal mischief, use of a weapon to commit a felony and two counts of terroristic threats. Marks was arrested for aiding and abetting Tuma and making terroristic threats. Both will be arraigned next week.

Station 1011 spoke exclusively with the woman and her girlfriend. Watch the interview below.

      Geez Queerty, way to leave the white guy out of the headline. Anti-Muslim much?

      Compare how the two sound:

      “Muslim Man In Nebraska Arrested In Hate Crime Against Lesbian Sister”

      versus

      “Two Men In Nebraska Arrested In Hate Crime Against One of the Men’s Lesbian Sister”

      See what a difference that makes?

      P.S. I’m not Muslim, yet I can see what a poor choice of words your headline was.

      @Joetx: Don’t be a sanctimonious prick please. The report clearly states that the attacks were motivated by religion and that the white man was just assisting the brother, who was the main attacker. It was he who went at his sister with a crowbar.

      *after his sister. Also am I by no means saying that the white guy is innocent or anything. Just that your version of the headline is badly constructed and irrelevant.

      Religion is the enemy. It’s used to promote wars, racism, hatred of women and LGBT folks, rape, economic exploitation and mindless ignorance.

      These two barbaric thugs should be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole but they won’t, especially in a state like Nebraska whose government has a long history of pandering to cults, especial the political cults like the roman, mormon and evangelical cults.

      @Joetx: I thought the same thing after reading. Definitely anti-Muslim. Also check out how it goes from “A lesbian woman in Lincoln, Nebraska was attacked Thursday with a crowbar” to “Tuma and his friend…tried to attack Tuma’s sister with a crowbar” to “Tuma repeatedly hit the vehicle with the crowbar”. Stuff like this is exactly why I stopped arguing against the term “gay agenda”. Shameless.

      @KDub: You’re as hypocritical as the sanctimonious Christo-ban. Notice how you’re only quoting the passages that fit YOUR agenda?

      @MikeE: I just quoted what was in the story. Replace Muslim with gay and think about how you’d feel about the obvious slant on this story. What happened is awful (especially since they’re family), but let’s say a Fox News story attempted to link uncivilized behavior with homosexuality. You probably wouldn’t like it. We need to stop thinking we have a free pass to spew/incite hate if we want the hate directed at us to end. This crime was disgusting, and so is the style of reporting the editors chose.

      This is so sad, I feel for the girl. I know how hard it is to be part of a family who is so anti-gay and sometimes very violent (using God/religion as an excuse to commit these crimes). Don’t think the headline really is an issue, clearly stating that religious (once again) is to blame.

      @Joetx: How do you ( and Queerty for that matter) know the white man isn’t a Muslim?

      Islam is a religion, not a race.

      The religion of peace, we’re having serious problems with islam over here in the UK, people are terrified but are afraid to speak up because they’ve done a masterful job convincing people it’s a race and worthy of protection.

      It’s an idea and they don’t have rights, people have rights. Freedom from belief and the genocide it causes everywhere it is strong is key to our future.

      Newsflash, people: Muslims do not like us. Their religion preaches harm against us far more than Christianity does. They want us dead. To acknowledge this is not “Islamaphobic” as many of you contend, it’s simple common sense. Perhaps instances like this will convince you.

      This girl needs to move away and cut off all contact with her family. This is no joke. She escaped the honor killing this time but they may try again and when you are dealing with brainwashed cult members, who think they are doing the bidding of an invisible wizard in the sky, all bets are off. Abuse of woman is inherent to Islamic society. Even the threat of being locked up for life doesn’t deter these people because they are brainwashed into believing they will be rewarded with eternity in paradise. Google ‘Ayaan Hirsi Ali’ and watch her on youtube if you want insight into this culture of institutionalized misogyny.
