Mother of Murdered 6-Year-Old Palestinian American Released from Hospital

HeadlineOct 23, 2023

In Illinois, the mother of slain 6-year-old Wadea Al-Fayoume was released from the hospital over the weekend. Thirty-two-year-old Hanaan Shahin was stabbed by her landlord Joseph Czuba at least 12 times in the racist attack that claimed her son’s life. The brutal attack on the Palestinian American family came as rights groups warned that dehumanizing rhetoric around the war on Gaza is putting the lives of Muslims and Arabs in the U.S. at risk.
