"You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers to be the Jews..." -- Qur'an 5:82
This Qur'anic dictum usually manifests itself as intense animosity on the part of Muslims toward Jews.
"SEE IT: Wild Brooklyn melee erupts as NYPD arrests Muslim teen for allegedly taunting Jewish subway rider," by Shane Dixon Kavanaugh for the New York Daily News, April 18 (thanks to Twostellas):
The attempted arrest of an allegedly hate-mongering teen aboard a Brooklyn subway quickly turned into a wild showdown between cops and a roiled mob, according to sources and video obtained by the Daily News.
The melee began when suspect Stephan Stowe, 17, and a group of eight friends approached a Jewish man wearing a yarmulke aboard a Brooklyn-bound 3 train just before 3 p.m. Monday, police sources said Wednesday.
"Assalamu Alaikum," Stowe said to the man, using a common greeting among Muslims that means, "Peace be with you," court documents allege.
Actually it means "Peace be upon you," which is not quite the same thing.
When the man ignored the greeting, Stowe allegedly became combative.
"You think you're better than me?" the teen allegedly said. "We are cousins."
"No were not," The man shot back, and told Stowe to leave him alone.
The suspect then started hurling ethnic slurs and called the man disrespectful, according to court papers.
As the tension aboard the train escalated, the man whipped out his cell phone and took a photo of Stowe, who then snatched the phone and deleted the photo, police sources said.
"I'm going to kill you right now," Stowe said, according to cops and court records. He then swore at the man, according to cops and court records, and in an apparent reference to the Holocaust added, "They should have killed all of you."
The man managed to swipe his phone back from Stowe and ran to alert the conductor, police sources said. As the train pulled into the Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum stop, cops were waiting to collar Stowe, police sources said.
But that's when a mob rose up against the cops....
I was just reading about an incident during sail.
The rule on the ship was no gambling but some did
anyway, two got into a fight and one of them knifed
the other. The captain had the murderer bound to
his victim and then threw them both over board.
Swift justice in those days.
Liberals, for some reason, love the idea of public transportation. The local college regents, who among them don’t drive a car worth less than $60,000, wanted to limit the town’s main east/west road past the university to two lanes. Their stated objective was, “to force everyone to ride the bus.” (One of them quickly added, “It’s for the safety of the children.”) These people commute in their Mercedes from the north. The uproar stopped them. The regents and the development commission did re-do the only other east/west road to just two lanes. Now it’s quaint brick and drivers must dodge exotic planters full of impractical greenery at a maximum 25 mph. If you go 30, assuming there’s an open spot long enough to get up to that speed, you get a ticket.
So, they want us to ride public transport with 30 gang-bangers and other people we wouldn’t let into hour house. BTW, they want us to give up our guns too.
As for the question about American blacks vs. black foreigners or recent black immigrants to the U.S. Here's a key distinction: the descendants of American slaves relatively often -- and understandably -- have a pathological culture. By contrast, black people who immigrate freely to the U.S. from the West Indies, for example, are a very successful group economically -- according to some research they are more successful than the average white family. They get educated, become professionals, and are prosperous. They generally have a reasonable modicum of respect for duly constituted authorities.
The implication is that the pathological culture of many native Americans blacks is the result of the brutality of slavery. What the poster apparently doesn't realize is that West Indies slavery was - much - more brutal than American slavery. To the point that they could not maintain their population and had to constantly import replacements, with 95% of black slaves going to the Caribbean and S. America, only 5% to N. America, where slaves thrived and multiplied, almost uniquely in world history.
Slavery in the Caribbean lasted almost as long, with emancipation in different areas coming from 30 years before ours to over 20 years later. There are good questions to be asked about why the long-term effects of slavery were so different in different parts of the world. Or if a history of slavery really has much to do with it.
Recently worked a project in Grenada, 95%+ black. Several different Grenadians commented on how perception of West Indies blacks in America is driven by Jamaican gangs and thugs. At least according to them, this is a result of widespread adoption of Cuban marxist ideology of hate rich people and whitey in Jamaica. To the point where even native Jamaicans who became rich (by local standards) in USA or Britain can't return to Jamaica without being targeted.
IOW, the West Indies is a big place, with some pretty diverse populations.
Interesting that one of the two initially responding cops was blacks. So this is hardly just a response to brutal white cops.
And dramatically different social successes even on the same island: Compare North and South Korea (er, Haiti and Dominican Republic) lifestyles and health and economies and ecologies.
My last boss was Kenyan African and one of the hardest working guys I know.
He was not impressed by American blacks in general. I would not say he ‘hated’ them because this man had no hatred in his body.
Ironic link in the original story about a Jew attacking an Arab, unprovoked.
The subway incident seems more about aholes than Muslims. I would guess that that phrase he uttered at the beginning is the sum of his knowledge of Islam. Sounds like a future jail dweller.
I think you are right.
Apparently the definition of “wild melee” has been revised.
” Peace of the GRAVE be upon you”.
That’s the real translation...
Well said beavermom.
Friend is a black Muslim from Nigeria. Worked as a meat cutter while getting his MBA.
Hard working, neat as a pin and refused any gub mint help.
“When I do it I want the credit, not to give it to some gubmint”.
GOD bless and be proud.
Get ready for big Al.
If Obama had a son, he’d look just like this guy.
“They are not dealing with humans in that situation. Feral animals is the appropriate turn”...
The above quote was made by a black woman of African decent. She is absolutely correct. As seen in the video, the subway tunnel is nothing more that a place for the “human rats” to collect and cause as much trouble as they can. Notice too, very few had “odumbo phones” and just had to video the entire incident hoping for an opportunity to get back at the “whitey” police.
The woman with the big mouth got what she deserved as well, face to the floor and in handcuffs. Good for the cops as they had their hands full for a while. It won’t stop the subway rats from doing their thing anytime soon but it damn sure tells what they are like.
A couple dozen of the people I’ve worked closely with in my career (IT) are black. I divide them into two groups: regular people who happwn to be vlack and “holder’s people”. That is, those that epitomize the black culture in the US -low work ethic, morals, etc.
It hit me one day that with just one exception, all of those in the former group were not born and raised in the US and all of them in the latter group were.
It’s not race. It’s culture.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I bet the cops are going to get some sensitivity training.
Wild animals! I am so glad I do not live in the jungle.
Definitely time to get a swivel head, check your perimeter, your 6 o clock, profile all people you have to cross course with with known facts of how to spot a Muslim.
There “may” be truly innocent peaceful Muslims.
I say “may” sardonically if nothing else, for now I am treating ALL Muslims as a walking potential to explode like an old container of nitroglycerin.
