Muslim Cabbie Charged With Running Over Students After Religious Dispute

Would a practitioner of any religion other than Islam react this way? WTF.

Muslim Cabbie Charged With Running Over Students After Religious Dispute

Tuesday , February 20, 2007

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,252783,00.html

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.

Hence, it was very idiologically similar.



Listen, no arguement there are radical muslims that train to kill based on Religious beliefs. I agree. I know this. I am only saying that there are other religious nuts, even in our own country.

I studied religion and have a solid core belief that the Christian God is the same God as the Jewish and Muslim God, that we (mankind) have preverted the rest and brought about the situation we are in now with such drastic beliefs.

if your point was to jump around and make a bunch of monkey noises without really saying anything of significance, than yes you made your point.

Trust me... if someone said that only Christians were capable of being insane, and then followed that up with a backpedalling "Most" Christians are insane... I'd be bashing them as well.

An idiotic blanket statement is the refuge of a coward, no matter who the statement is about.

You aren't racist, but you sound silly when you try and make it seem as if Islam is the only religion that could produce someone who'd act like that. It's hard to take a claim like that seriously.

By the way.

Can you point out exactly what is "PC" about my view? I'm beginning to think that that phrase doesn't mean what a bunch of you that spew it out think it means.

Here's another fun story from today. Those Islamic countries are just kooky!
Man, these people all need to get loaded and laid. Seriously.

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.

I'll bet the Catholic pushed the Protestant into the path of the cab.

No, us non-PCers believe in Bayesian updating. You guys believe in throwing information away.
