Muslim Cabbie Charged With Running Over Students After Religious Dispute

Tuesday , February 20, 2007

NASHVILLE, Tenn.
A Muslim cabdriver from Somalia ran over two college students near Vanderbilt University after getting into an argument with them about religion, police said.

Ibrahim Ahmed, 37, a driver for United Cab, picked up two men near the Vanderbilt campus early Sunday morning, Capt. Mike Alexander of the Nashville Police Department said, referring to the incident report.

The two men, reportedly college students from Ohio who were visiting Nashville, were on their way back to the campus.

A conversation about religion ensued between the driver and his two fares. The local FOX affiliate in Nashville confirmed from a friend and fellow co-worker that Ahmed is a Sunni Muslim from Somalia.

At some point, according to the police, the two men exited the cab, and the cabbie also got out. They paid him his fare, and then they exchanged words.

According to the incident report, Ahmed then returned to his cab as the students fled on foot. Ahmed then allegedly drove across a parking lot, jumped a curb and struck the two men.

One of the students, identified as Jeremy Invus, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with critical injuries. The other passenger, Andrew Nelson, avoided the cab.

Hospital spokeswoman Kathy Rivers told FOX News that Invus is recuperating and does not want to talk to the media about the incident.

Ahmed, charged with assault and attempted homicide, is being held on $300,000 bond. He also was also charged with theft because police said the license plate on his cab was listed as stolen.

"We are working with the police to see what happened," United Cab manager Cherrie Machado said.

"I don't believe he will be working here anymore, but that is up to the licensing cab board whether they will pull his permit and the owners of the company."

Machado said she would not feel "comfortable" to have Ahmed back working at the company. She noted that he also teaches English as a second language next door to the cab company.

FOX news' Sharon Fain and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

you said you're not religious, but have you studied these religions?
But the direction you are heading is like a muslim saying that many christians believe in polygamy simply because there are radical Mormons who do and they are on display with the HBO's hit. Mormons are a christian religion, but it is fair to say this practice is a minority of Mormons and virtually all other Christian Demographics. Yet it is all over the news and on TV.

Islamic spies to snoop on lovers

Tue Feb 20th

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian state plans to recruit "spies" from the public to snoop on unmarried lovers and report them to Islamic religious authorities, a newspaper said Tuesday.

The Terengganu state government plans to enlist the part-time spies to look out for un-Islamic behavior, such as unmarried couples kissing or holding hands, the Star daily said.

"Some of these 'spies' could be waitresses or even janitors at hotels acting as auxiliary undercover agents for our religious department," the head of the state government's Islamic and welfare committee, Rosol Wahid, was quoted as saying.

"Accurate details are required for the enforcement officers to act, otherwise they could be pouncing on married couples."

Last October, religious police in another part of this mainly Muslim country caused an outcry when they mistakenly raided the rented holiday apartment of a Christian American couple on suspicion that they were unmarried Muslims in "close proximity."

I don't care about any of that stuff. I care about what is the observed behavior of religious practitioners. Sure, we have Christian nutjobs.

Here is a good example. Penn and Teller had a show that just ravaged Christianity and the Bible. And they weren't ****ing scared of the backlash. When asked if they would do a similar episode featuring the Koran, they laughed and said something to the effect "Are you crazy?". And I think we know why.

Man shot in argument over James Brown's height

Two Atmore men exchanged gunfire Monday, injuring one of them when the friends got into an argument about how tall the recently deceased soul singer James Brown was, police said.

Officers said David James Brooks Jr. walked into the police station Monday, saying he had been shot. Paramedics rushed to the office and took Brooks to a local hospital. Minutes later, Dan Gulley Jr. walked into the police station, saying that he had shot Brooks.

Information on Brooks' condition was not immediately available today.

Unless you are stating on one hand that we should only fear Muslims, and on the other that they, as a group, are incredibly inept at following through on their uniquely evil intentions.

You don't think those events have a chilling effect on freedom of expressions? Since no one died (which isn't the case in the cartoon fiasco) it is no big deals?

And there are hundreds of thousands (perhaps more than 1 million) of MFers dying in Sudan at the hands of Muslim aggressors.


you're right, blanket statements over all muslims is the way to go. I now agree with you and will prove it with my own blanket statement.


if you call yourself christian in anyway (even Catholic) than we should not try to talk with an islamic person, we should just run them over before they have a chance to run us over.

Oh and make fun of them more at your respected posts of duty, magazine, print, video, where ever you work.

no... i don't think people using free speech is bad for free speech.

What? We are talking about a film-maker being viscously murdered in broad daylight because a Muslim didn't like his film. Regarding the cartoon thing, we had embassies torched. Is that exercising free speech? What about Khomeni's death bounty on Salman Rushdie? Khomeni was simply exercising his 1st amendment rights?

Laughing at the cabby's religious beliefs IS certainly lawful activity. Running down passengers isn't.

You are doing a great job of pointing out Muslim whackos.

You simply aren't helping your point that only Islam has whackos. For every whacko you can point out, I can name someone of anothe rreligion.

http://www.wayodd.com/revengeful-woman-hits-mcdonalds-patrons-with-car/v/3818/



An angry McDonald's customer ran her car over two other customers following a dispute over who was next in line. Police are looking for the woman who is still at large.

Melinda Ann Thomas, 34, and Linda Ann Thomas, 51, were standing in a crowded line at McDonald's early Saturday morning as they waited to order breakfast, police told Athens Banner-Herald.

A cashier opened a new line and they stepped to the front of it, a move that angered another customer who was waiting to order.

According to the Poilce report, the unidentified woman started yelling at them and threatened to kill them.

The woman then left the restaurant before the Thomases and waited for them in her dark blue Jeep Cherokee in the parking lot, witnesses told police. As the Thomases made their way to their car, witnesses said the woman pulled out of her parking space and sped toward the women, striking them both with the passenger side of the Jeep.

Neither woman was badly injured, the report said.

The woman is being sought by police on charges of aggravated assault.

Didn't know I was advocating a policy position. Thought I was just pointing out that Islam has a proclivity to engage in violence against non-believers. Evidently, if I were to make the statement that "Men are taller than women" you'd respond with the simpleton "How can you say that. Not all men are taller than all women." Okay. Whatever.

No. I am guessing you've never been exposed to statistical analysis. Everyone knows that all men are not taller than all women, but saying "Men are taller than women" is statistical shorthand for saying that the mean height of men is larger than the men height of women.

Randomly choose a man and a women. The probability is far greater that the man will be taller.

My guess is that inductive logic is an unknown concept to you.

Actually, I teach inductive and deductive logic. I'm no expert, but the concepts are far from unknown.

Perhaps you should revisit your initial statement: Would a practitioner of any religion other than Islam react this way?

Of course I am not saying "no". All I am saying is that the probability to react that way varies across contemporary religious denominations. And somehow saying that appears to be very controversial.

Damn. IIRC, the actor is going through some tough emotional times and hops into a cab. The cabbie is Arabic and is listening to some kind of Arabic music while crying his eyes out. The actor says, "Ummm, are you okay?" The cabbie stops crying and says, "Yes, I am fine." Then loses it to the music again.

More info.....


http://www.sensesofcinema.com/contents/directors/03/jarmusch.html


An excerpt from that link:


While he does avoid major Hollywood studios, Jarmusch has no problem collaborating with well known actors. His first experiment was with Night On Earth (1992), which featured famous movie stars, Winona Ryder, Gena Rowlands, and Rosie Perez. Jarmusch returned to the structure he used so well in Mystery Train, but expanded its scope. Night On Earth is broken up into five stories that all occur at the same time but in different cities all over the world with the action restricted to taxi cab rides. Jarmusch uses these encounters as springboards for interesting, often hilarious, sometimes tragic discussions ranging from acting in movies to circus clowns to sex with farm animals.
