Mohamed provided more details about this experience in a Facebook post he made with a picture of the receipt.
Yesterday i went to Olive Garden restaurant to have dinner with nice families. We were a group of 7 adults and 5 children. Everyone in the restaurant was knowing that we were Arabs Muslims on the table coz of the language and the ladies were having scarves over their head. After finishing we asked for the receipts and the waitress came to us with that receipt in the picture. I can't express how this act touched our hearts. Among all the bad things happening to Muslims and the hate speech that the presidential candidate had made lately , there is still light in the dark, there is still hope within the frustration. All what i can say to who did that, Merry Christmas to you too and God bless such a beautiful heart you have.
The presidential candidate he's referring to is most-likely Donald Trump, who has been clear on his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States until the situation can further assessed.
Mohamed's comments still victimize Muslims. Yes, not all Muslims committed the crime that have popping up more and more lately. However, until lines can be drawn by the religion of Islam, and they can publicly denounce extremist groups like ISIS and al-quaeda and everything they stand for, people will continue to be prejudice, and they're right to feel that way.
