The Consquences of Being Ignorant – NY Cabbie Stabbed for Being a Muslim

Posted by politicalmonkey2010 on August 25, 2010

Don't Keep Silent!!!

It has finally happened…tangible consequences of a hate campaign fueled by ignorance, half truths, lies and political agendas.  A NYC cabbie was attacked, stabbed for being a Muslim.

The passenger, Michael Enright, 21, of Brewster, N.Y., hailed the cab at Second Avenue and East 24th Street around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the police said. He slashed and stabbed the 43-year-old driver in his throat, face and arm.  The driver,  Ahmed H. Sharif, 43, (who has been in the US for over 25 years) stopped the cab and approached a police officer on Third Avenue near 42nd Street. Mr. Enright was arrested at the scene.

Mr. Sharif’s fare started the ride asking him in a friendly way if he was Muslim, whether he was observing Ramadan, and how long he had been in the United States. After falling silent for a few minutes, the passenger began cursing and screaming, and then yelled, “Assalamu alaikum — consider this a checkpoint!” and slashed Mr. Sharif across the neck, and then on the face from his nose to his upper lip, the alliance said. (“Assalamu alaikum” — “peace be with you” — is a traditional Muslim greeting.)

Congratulations to each and every person who rallied against the Park 51 project and promoted an atmosphere of intolerance and ignorance.  A special thank you goes out to (in no particular order)

1.  Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs, feel free to contact her at writeatlas@aol.com, I did.. Dear Pamela,
I would like to send you some soap from Crab Tree and Evelyn to help you wash some of the blood of your hands.  After you have whipped the masses into a frenzy with half truths and lies, you are gaining ground!  Congratulations, a cabbie was stabbed in NYC because he was a Muslim.  Kudos Pamela, job well done.  I can hardly wait to see what you come up with next!
Lots of love
Munky

2. Sarah Palin of Alaska who has a remarkable record for quitting and never knowing when to shut her mouth, contact her at twitter.com/sarahpalinusa, I did… @sarahpalinusa do u need soap to wash the blood of the NYC cabbie off your hands? or are you not finished fanning the flames of ignorance?

3.  Newt Gingrich who has  called organizers of the “Ground Zero Mosque” “radical Islamists” seeking “supremacy.” He went on to say that building an Islamic cultural center two blocks away from the former site of the World Trade Center towers would be akin to Nazis putting up signs near the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.  Contact him at http://www.newt.org/contact (I did as follows: Dear Newt..I have a question.  Do you now feel like you have blood on your hands?  Or is that not part of your political agenda?  Specifically I refer to the NYC cabbie who was stabbed for being a Muslim.  Do you think your rhetoric contributed to any of this?  Or you were too busy pandering for potential votes?  Just wondering..

4.  Pat Robertson, that wonderful Christian man who would like your money, and by the way filed a lawsuit to block the mosque.  I contacted Pat thru the 700 Club asking for prayer  http://www.cbn.com/contact/prayer-form.aspx?topic=Healing I wrote …Please Pat, let us all pray for a more spiritual approach to life and let us all wash the blood from our hands from listening to you and your anti-Islamic rhetoric, let us all ask God to forgive us for stirring up hatred in the hearts of others with mis-information and lies.  I am speaking Pat of the NYC cabbie who was attacked because he was a Muslim.  Do you feel vindicated now?  Do you feel your message has been received by your faithful followers or do you have more for us?)

5.  The Anti Defamation League, who thinks it is wrong to hate, except if you are a Muslim. Contact them at http://support.adl.org/site/PageServer?pagename=contact_us I did with the following inquiry:  Hello
I am curious if you have washed your hands yet of the blood of a NYC cabbie who was attacked because he was a Muslim.  After all you did encourage the re-location of the mosque because it wasn’t “right”.  So I am wondering, how much more blood will be shed before you do the RIGHT thing and live up to your stated goals of fighting bigotry?

6.  The Republican Party, to each one of those candidates who are willing to throw out the constitution for some popular votes, contact them at http://gopleader.gov/Contact/default.aspx I did.. Ladies and Gentlemen – This is where the rubber meets the road.  Do you have the internal fortitude to reign in your candidates who would and have stoked the flames of intolerance and ignorance by using the Park 51 mosque as a point to get a few votes?  Or will you be content and just ask for some more soap to wash the blood from your hands?  I am referring to the NYC cabbie who was stabbed for being a Muslim.  Do the RIGHT thing.  I dare you.

7.  Glenn Beck, Glenn, Glenn, Glenn…what can I say?  How much of this do you own? Contact Glenn at me@glennbeck.com I did .. Glenn,
I have some soap that I would like to send you and Sarah Palin to help you get the blood off your hands?  You  have managed to make folks foam at the mouth with your half truths, innuendos and hate mongering about the Park 51 project.  Congratulations, a cabbie was stabbed in NYC because he was a Muslim.  Kudos Glenn, job well done.  I can hardly wait to see what you come up with next!  On 8/28 you have a wonderful chance to really rally the troops.
Lots of love
Munky
