Chicago bar patron arrested for throwing glass at Jewish bartender and yelling she ‘hates Jews’

A Chicago bar patron has been arrested after allegedly shouting that she “hates Jews” and assaulting a bartender who wore a Star of David necklace.

Assistant State’s Attorney Loukas Kalliantasis told media that Sara Abdulrasoul, 30, threw a drink at a subway bartender last year after seeing the bartender was Jewish, CWB Chicago reported.

According to Kalliantasis, Abdulrasoul, who is a pharmacist for a living, started verbally attacking the bartender and said she would be a “whore” in her home country. Abdulrasoul then allegedly used “offensive language” to assault the bartender while demanding that the bartender remove the Star of David necklace.

The bartender told officials that she explained that she went to school in Israel, but Abdulrasoul allegedly continued to use “derogatory” language, even as the bartender tried to defuse the situation by apologizing and saying there was no offense.

But Abdulrasoul insisted that she “hates Jews”, whom she called murderers. She then threw a drink at the bartender.

Abdulrasoul left the scene before security arrived, but surveillance video identified the woman. The bartender later identified the woman among a line of police.

Chicago prosecutors are charging Abdulrasoul with one count of a hate crime.

Abdulrasoul was released on her own recognizance.
