Palestinian-American Stabbed in Austin, No Hate Crime Charges Yet

A Palestinian-American was reportedly stabbed in Austin, Texas when a group of American Muslims were driving home after a pro-Palestine protest. A man allegedly tried to stall them, hurled the n-word and other offensive remarks, tried to rip their Free Palestine flag off their car, pulled one of them out of the vehicle and started a fight where the suspect then stabbed the 23-year old Palestinian-American in the chest.

The young man survived the attack after surgery and the suspect, Bert James Baker, has been arrested, but law enforcement has yet to file hate crime charges against the suspect.

The rise of hate crimes against Muslims, particularly those who stand with Palestine, has been on the rise in the US since Oct. 7.
