Emirjeta Xhelili, 32, hurled Islamophobic insults as she pounced on the two victims near her Bath Beach home about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, authorities said.

“Get the f–k out of here,” Xhelili, 32, allegedly yelled at the pair, according to prosecutors. “Get the f–k out of America, b—–s.”

As she punched the 23-year-old women in the face and kicked them in their legs, she tried to rip the traditional Muslim veils off their heads at Bay 20th St. and Cropsey Aves., police sources said

During the attack Xhelili tried to knock over a stroller carrying a 15 month old child.

Shortly before the attack Xhelili made a series of social media postings attacking Muslims and African-Americans. Other postings cheered Donald Trump. “America is the ark of Noah. Trump’s gonna win,” reads one post.
