In a shock­ing inci­dent, a drunk Texas woman, Eliz­a­beth Wolf, is accused of attempt­ing to drown a ran­dom 3‑year-old Pales­tin­ian girl at an apart­ment com­plex pool in Euless, near Dal­las. The vio­lent attack, which has been described as a poten­tial hate crime, has sparked out­rage and calls for a thor­ough investigation.

Accord­ing to the police report, the 42-year-old Wolf, who wit­ness­es described as “very intox­i­cat­ed,” approached the child’s hijab-wear­ing moth­er by the pool­side and inter­ro­gat­ed her about her origins. 

She then alleged­ly jumped into the shal­low end of the pool, where the lit­tle girl and her 6‑year-old broth­er were play­ing, and tried to grab them both.

While the boy was able to break free, Wolf is accused of drag­ging the 3‑year-old girl to the deep­er end of the pool and repeat­ed­ly dunk­ing her head under­wa­ter, attempt­ing to drown her. The girl’s moth­er and anoth­er bystander quick­ly jumped in and were able to res­cue the sput­ter­ing child, who was lat­er cleared by medics at the scene.

The trau­ma­tized moth­er, iden­ti­fied only as Mrs. H, expressed her anguish, stat­ing, “We are Amer­i­can cit­i­zens, orig­i­nal­ly from Pales­tine, and I don’t know where to go to feel safe with my kids. My coun­try is fac­ing a war, and we are fac­ing that hate here.” She added that her daugh­ter is now ter­ri­fied, hid­ing when­ev­er they leave their apartment.

The Texas chap­ter of the Coun­cil on Amer­i­can-Islam­ic Rela­tions (CAIR) has called for state and fed­er­al author­i­ties to inves­ti­gate the inci­dent as a hate crime. CAIR-Austin Oper­a­tions Man­ag­er Shaimaa Zayan con­demned the attack, say­ing, “We are see­ing a new lev­el of big­otry here where a per­son deeply believes they get to decide, based on reli­gion, spo­ken lan­guage, and coun­try of ori­gin, whose kids deserve to stay alive and whose don’t.”

Wolf was arrest­ed at the scene and charged with attempt­ed cap­i­tal mur­der, among oth­er offens­es. She was bailed out of jail the fol­low­ing day, a deci­sion that has been crit­i­cized by CAIR, who called for a high­er bail bond and an open con­ver­sa­tion with offi­cials to address the alarm­ing rise in Islam­o­pho­bia, anti-Arab, and anti-Pales­tin­ian sentiment.
