Jihad comes to San Fran
As many as 14 people were injured this afternoon by a motorist who drove around San Francisco running them down before he was arrested, authorities said.
In San Francisco, the attacks began around 1 p.m., but it was unclear in what order:
• Two people, one of them a child, were critically injured around by a sport-utility vehicle on the 3500 block of California Street in Laurel Heights.
• Three people were hit at California and Fillmore streets. Witnesses said they included a man with a broken hip and a woman with a gashed head.
• Two people were seriously hurt at Bush and Pierce streets and one person was seriously injured at Bush and Buchanan streets, police said. One person suffered minor injuries in an incident at 1850 Fillmore Street.
• Two other people suffered minor injuries when they were hit at Pine at Divisadero streets, and another two were hit and suffered minor injuries at Divisadero and Bush Street.
Authorities believe the same suspect struck and killed a pedestrian in Fremont earlier today. That victim was walking north on Fremont Boulevard in the bicycle lane when he was struck from behind and knocked several feet into a field, Fremont Officer Alan Zambonin said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. The black SUV, a Honda described as a Pilot or a CRV, made no attempt to stop or help the victim, police said.
Who would do such a thing?
Authorities have identified the man who was arrested as Ohmeed Aziz Popal.
Ohmeed huh? hmmm.... lemme take a wild guess...
UPDATE: Darleen tells us that on the Hugh Hewitt show, callers from the area are saying the area the driver targeted is heavily Jewish and that one victim was run over right in front of the Jewish Community Center.
The MSM is not reporting that part.
Its true, its just not safe to be Jewish in the United States anymore and no one wants to admit it.

We aren't safe here anymore. My Rabbi told me a year ago that American Jews should keep their passports handy and now I agree with him.
