Sickening.

But cops say the Halal food truck vendor was attacked because of his faith at 4:45 a.m. Sunday as he opened Masjid al-Saaliheen for morning prayer.

Knowing my city, and the hour of attack it sounds like the work of a mentally ill maybe homeless man (we let the mentally ill loose on the street since the Reagan era). There was an attack on a Mosque a few months ago with a home made molotov cocktail bomb and they found the person and he wasnot right in the head either.

Or of a hater patient & clever enough to take the time to observe the mosque for a few days and note when people come & go. The dawn prayer would be the time when it was least likely for anyone to be on the streets to witness the attack. If you're from NYC, then you know what the streets look like at that hour, especially in Queens.

Can't make this up.

Mosque attack victim warns of eye for an eye

“If I see him again, I will kill him from 20 feet away,” 57-year-old Bashir Ahmad told The Post yesterday. “I will hurt him.”

Hmm...odd that the victim would express such vastly different sentiments to two different reporters.

Ahmad said he didn’t recognize his attacker and described him as “a Russian Jew.”

Russian, okay I can see you'd describe certain ethnic groups as such.
...But how do you distinguish between Russian Jews and Russian gentiles?

You can't, unless he was wearing a kippah or something. I have to wonder why the police would be searching for a Hispanic guy if the victim, who presumably gave them the description, said he was a Russian Jew.

Additionally, the news video embedded in the NY Daily News article says "the attacker yelled anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim slurs."

Like I said, I also find it odd that two reporters would come up with completely different stories about what the victim supposedly said afterwards. The NY Daily News portrays him as forgiving, the NY Post as vengeful.

re: #3 CuriousLurker

I am not discounting what you said but my NY street sense is telling me crazy guy knifes someone.

This also proves Bloomberg's gun laws right. If the criminal had a gun the victim would be dead rather than injured.

The NYPost is a hateful racist newspaper. It may as well be edited by the KKK.

You see, when I was a kid I used to save up for a month, so I could get an R&B album and, the same day, the completed works of Anton Webern. Maybe that means something. Maybe that tells you something about my music. -- Excerpt from the book "Rock and Other Four Letter Words", copyright 1968.
