Being Muslim in Minnesota: Events stoke tension, fear among the faithful
by Doualy Xaykaothao
One Friday evening last May, Adly Ohalley and his wife, Worood Abumayaleh, went to pick up their teenage son at a friend's house in Brooklyn Park, north of downtown Minneapolis. He drove; she sat in the passenger seat, wearing a cream-colored headscarf.
As they had done many nights before, they parked in front of the house and waited for their boy to come out.
"And suddenly a lady came with a rifle," Abumayaleh said. "Knocking very very hard. And she said, 'Open the window or I'll kill you. Open the window.' And I was scared, I couldn't even call 911 or do anything. I just froze, my brain froze ... [I] just said, 'Maybe she's going to kill us now.'"
