Woman Jailed for Abusing and Spitting at Muslims as they left Mosque

Woman jailed for abusing and spitting at Muslims as they left mosque

(via. Islamophobia-Watch)

Worshippers leaving a mosque in Colne were subjected to a tirade of racist abuse by a drunken woman who spat on them in the street, a court heard.

Brothers Quaram and Asim Majid were leaving the venue in Chapel Street on Wednesday when they were confronted by Emma Woods, Burnley magistrates were told. Woods, 24, of Laithe Street, Colne, hurled abuse at the pair and repeatedly spat at them, as their 14-year-old nephew looked on, said prosecutor Bill Maude.

The brothers tried to walk away towards Albert Road and Colne Lane but Woods pursued them across the Pendle town, in scenes which were described in court as “disgraceful”.

Woods admitted two offences of racially aggravated assault and breaching a suspended prison sentence order, also imposed for assault. Magistrates jailed her for 146 days.

Mr Maude said the defendant continued to pursue the pair, as one of the brothers attempts to guide their 14-year-old nephew to safety. Woods shouted: “No-one wants you here. Get out of our country. This is our town.”

  • Mindy, your logic is flawed. Being drunk does not excuse you from your actions. If a drunk driver causes an accident, should we just let him off the hook? Of course not! Judging from this article, this woman sounds like typical trailer trash (or, since it England, lets say chavette).

    Also, very pertinent to bring up Marwa al-Sherbini. Not only was her murder a grave miscarriage of justice, but the fact that the German government bent over backwards to PROTECT her killer by hiding his name, providing police and so forth… UGH. If they had provided police in the first place maybe she wouldn’t have been MURDERED in court! Then again, we can also lay some of the blame at the feet of hatemongers like Michelle Malkin, Robert Spencer, Michael Savage, etc.

  • mindy1 — you’re right. That’s why they should have also charged her with public intoxication, as being punk in drublic is illegal, too.

    We must thank Loonwatch for this spittle-by-spittle account of this harrowing, hateful, hurtful, and horrifying atrocity. It’s clear that even more vast amounts of spittle may have been shed if not for the brothers demonstrating Islam’s legendary tolerance. A few searing questions remain, though: Are the brothers’ and boy’s wounds life-threatening? Have they been released from the hospital yet? Is 146 days in jail enough for this Islamophobic demon? Where can we send donations for the cost of the mens’ grief couseling? What will be the damage amount sought by the men in the forthcoming civil suit? And finally, why does the mainstream media ignore depravity such as this while endlessly focusing on beheadings, genital mutilation, suicide bombings, honor killings, etc…etc….etc…?

    Guess when we are designated for “special treatment” rounded up and “evacuated” via trains to places to “work” but first we needed to be “disinfected” and have “showers” That still wont be a hate crime

    On the night of May 10, someone discreetly walked around the grounds of the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida, in Jacksonville, carrying a gas can which he quickly lit and ran away. Minutes later, as more than 60 people prayed inside, the pipe bomb exploded in a ball of flames and set part of the building on fire.

    Since she was a drunk, she well have been a moron who did not know what she was doing. What she did was wrong, but she just sounds like a fool

    She got off lightly. Under the Dangerous Dogs Act, her very existence means she should have been put down!
