At first I thought this was another case of someone mistaking an Indian Hindu/Sikh for a Muslim, like the man who shot up the Sikh temple. It turns out that that is not the case if the current reports are to be believed. I still can't figure out where anyone would have gotten the idea that Hindus had anything to do with 9/11?

A 31-year-old Bronx woman who was seen muttering to herself before shoving a man onto subway tracks in front of a speeding train said she did so because, "I hate Hindus and Muslims," prosecutors said.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown identified the woman as Erika Menendez, 31. She has been charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime, New York City authorities said. In a statement, Brown said that awaits arraignment in Queens Criminal Court.

Menendez admitted to investigators that she pushed Sunando Sen, a 46-year-old Queens resident, on Thursday because of her hatred of Hindus and Muslims, a feeling that stems from Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Even the comments at NBC have degenerated into a racial cesspool, comments about Mexicans, miscegenation, blacks not being charged with hate crimes, Puerto Ricans, etc, etc...

Looks like she doesn't like Egyptians either, apparently that really is what she said if that is what the judge was told by prosecutors at her bail hearing.

A woman was charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime Saturday for pushing an Indian immigrant off a subway platform to his death, prosecutors said.

The accused, Erika Menendez, 31, of Rego Park, told detectives she attacked Sunando Sen, 46, because she "thought it would be cool" and because of long-standing prejudice against "Muslims, Hindus and Egyptians," whom she blamed for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, prosecutors said at her arraignment in Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens Saturday night.

Sen, born in Calcutta, India, was a practicing Hindu, friends and colleagues said.

This is from Sen's Roomate, who is a Muslim, from the NYT article linked above:

Ar Suman, a Muslim, and one of three roommates who shared a small first-floor apartment with Mr. Sen in Elmhurst, said he and Mr. Sen often discussed religion.

Though they were of different faiths, Mr. Suman said, he admired the respect that Mr. Sen showed for those who saw the world differently than he did. Mr. Suman said he once asked Mr. Sen why he was not more active in his faith and it resulted in a long philosophical discussion.

“He was so gentle,” Mr. Suman said. “He said in this world a lot of people are dying, killing over religious things.”

Is it just me, or is Geller actually blaming Muslims for this crime?

I don't know who is more insane, Pamela or the subway shover.

She blamed Muslms for this crime: because 9/11.

Yep, the "the Islamic supremacists" who "share AQ’s ideology" would be us. I wonder—if I referred to Jews collectively as Zionazi supremacists who share Meir Kahane's ideology and are responsible for any violence vistied upon them, do you suppose anyone would believe I wasn't a rabid anti-Semite? That's exactly the sort of vile shit people sanction when they defend Geller.

When she said this:

How is it that this lunatic has been able to roam the streets for 11 years? Another abject failure of our mental health system.

The first thing I thought was, "Um, Geller, YOU are living proof of the abject failure of our mental health system. The evidence is on display 24/7 at your website."

Ms. Geller and FOX 'News' did not push that poor person *BUT* Ms. Geller and FOX 'News' constantly create an atmosphere where ANYONE Islamic is a demon who deserves death.

If you keep preaching hate in public, people like that evil woman (The killer, not Ms. Geller) soak it up and this is one possible result.

I normally don't every buy into "third party responsibility for crime" explanations.

But this time, especially because Ms. Geller had her advertisements on the subway itself, I believe she is culpable.

I'm not saying Pam's responsible, but I am saying that she panders to, incites, and profits from crazy people just like the one responsible, in some ways that makes her worse, n'est ce pas?

Typical Geller. Never takes any responsibility for poisoning the environment. Ultimately the responsibility lies with the murderer but Geller has done nothing constructive. And acting as if the media, left, etc are okay with murders committed in the name of Islam is a pathetic lie even for her.

13 Kdizzle  Sun, Dec 30, 2012 6:39:06pm

Does Miss Gellar really believe that all events take place within a vaccum?

No of course she doesn't because then why would she continuously conclude all children born into and all adults currently following religion of Islam are by birth homicidal lunatics bent on destruction of western culture?

No that would mean Miss Gellar isn't a hateful bitch. So of course it can't be so.

I am pretty sure she more crazy than racist. Mentally disturbed people attacking people on the street and in the subway is not an unknown thing in NYC. We just seem to accept it will happen and ignore it after.

The notion that Geller etc. had anything to do with this is off the wall. This woman (the subway shover, that is) hates Hindus as well as Muslims, and the man she killed was Hindu.

If she has any reasons for her conduct, they are reasons unconnected to reality. Unconnected to internet propaganda. Unconnected, certainly, to the kind of propaganda that takes the side of the Hindus against the Muslims.

She has a track record of criminal violence and deranged behavior. But society has made its decision: there are many such people and the majority of them rub along through life never killing anyone. So we just take our losses.
