June 2, 2016: WND reported when a family in Lawrenceville, a suburb of Atlanta, said they were attacked by an unknown Muslim woman wearing a full burqa simply because they were flying an American flag for Memorial Day.

Amina Ali Ahra, 30, was arrested on two counts of simple battery after being accused of attacking a mother and daughter at their home, reported Fox 5 News in Atlanta. Dami Arno told police she was in the garage talking with her daughter when Ahra emerged from the woods wearing a burqa, grabbed the flag from off the mailbox and charged at them. She told Fox 5 she still can’t believe it all happened on American soil.

The alleged attacker told police she is “from Africa,” but would give them no other information about her identity, not even a local address. The U.S. government has imported more than 132,000 Somali refugees, and thousands more from Sudan, over the past 25 years. Atlanta has a large Somali refugee community.

“A lady walked out of our woods in a full burqa, full attire, stares at us for a minute, then grabs my American flag off of my mailbox and charges towards us with it, just swinging it with all her might,” the wife and mother told the news outlet.

Some neighbors in the area said they were upset that the Muslim woman was only charged with simple battery and not a hate crime.

Kerry, ‘Lurch’ – twins separated at birth? 

lurch_kerryJune 2, 2004: On this day 3 years ago, the John Kerry for President campaign took a giant ‘lurch’ backwards.

Howell Raines, former editor of the New York Times, expressed his doubts about the Democratic candidate in a Guardian newspaper commentary, comparing Kerry to Lurch from television’s “Addams Family.”

“The TV camera is an X-ray for picking up attitudinal truths, and Kerry’s lantern jaw and ‘Addams Family’ face somehow reinforce the message that this guy has passed from ponderous to pompous and is so accustomed to privilege that he doesn’t have to worry about looking goofy. It’s as if Lurch had gone to Choate.”

“I personally find him easier to talk to than Al Gore,” wrote Raines, “but there’s no denying that he’s ponderous. And he’s pompous in a way that Gore is not. With Gore, you feel that if he could choose, he would have been born poor and cool. Kerry radiates the feeling that he is entitled to his sense of entitlement. Probably that comes from spending too much time with Teddy Kennedy, but it’s a problem.”
