    Police: Cab Driver Stabbed By Passenger Who Asked "Are You Muslim?"

    A city cab driver is in the hospital after being stabbed by a passenger who allegedly asked if he was Muslim, police tell NY1.Investigators with the New York City Police Department say it all began Monday night when a 21-year-old man hailed a cab at 24th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattan.
    Police say the passenger asked the driver, "Are you Muslim?" When the driver said yes the passenger pulled a knife and slashed him in the throat, arm and lip.
    The 43-year-old driver was able to lock the passenger in the back of the cab and call 911.
    Both the driver and the passenger were taken to Bellevue Hospital.
    As of late Tuesday, no charges had been filed.

    That's horrible! I can see this happening, only b/c so many people are flipping out about the mosque in NY, and generalizing it to muslims, iranians, and everyone else in that general region. I really don't understand why we can't just all get along :/

    I've wondered this too. The vast majority of people are good people, but everybody has 'streaks'. Some people also grow up to have a low score on the 'agreeableness' factor of the big five personality traits test.

    Some very very few people seem to be completely pure (mostly). The mormons. I watched a wicked programme about them, although i disagree with much of their life philosophies, they do seem to have a way of enjoying their roles and living peacefully with each other.

    America is the Fourth Reich.

    It was created in the spirit of Anglo-Supremacy and has always had a major difficulty in shaking that out of our system.

    Attacking liberals will be next.

    The attacked Cab driver speaks:
    "I feel very sad," Sharif said, according to a statement released by the Taxi Workers Alliance. "I have been here more than 25 years. I have been driving a taxi more than 15 years. All four of my kids were born here."
    Sharif, who was slashed in the throat, upper lip, arm and hand, said he believes the battle over the Ground Zero mosque has inflamed anti-Muslim sentiment in America.
    "I never feel this hopeless and insecure before," the Queens man said in the statement. "Right now, the public sentiment is very serious (because of the Ground Zero mosque debate). All [taxi] drivers should be more careful."

    Calling us Nazis ? That's a bit extreme. We have a black President after all.

    IMHO: The coming domestic conflicts will be not only religion and race-based but a rising in class-based attacks. Really rich white people are going to need much tighter security.

    A guy goes for an interview to join the Police. The Chief gives him a .45 and a box of ammunition.

    "OK, I want you to go out and shoot six feminists, six muslims, six gays, six liberals and a rabbit."

    "Why the rabbit?" he asks.

    "I like your attitude. You're in."

    gays, abortion doctors, muslims.... when does it stop?

    say what you want about the "lefties" but at least they don't go out and murder their opponents.

    maybe it's time for that to change.

    No you're wrong. The rich will quite easily round up poor and angry people, give them good and generous amounts of money to go and root out the liberals and progressives.

    Have you ever heard of Central America?

    Oooh... sorry to offend your peaceful country way of life. I'll try and not make "satements" that offend your way of thinking.

    Oh, and you're completely wrong, the statements that I make on this site have no bearing whatsoever with how society thinks and acts.

    I told the truth, and you didn't like it. Boo hoo motherfucker.

    There's not enough of us to make a stand, we'll just have to leave the country eventually... it's sad.

    America or just white people in general? there are many places with white poulations that are far less tolerent. and before everone goes spouting off get all the facts. in fact if you look into to it you'll learn some interesting things about the attacker.

    Like the political affiliation of this nutcase makes any damn difference?
    Please tell me your sectarian mindset is so warped and dogmatic that you're actually applauding this?
