This is cold blooded sociopathic murder; and craziness like this is fed and rationalized by hate groups and their leaders like Pamela Geller & Robert Spencer. The so called “counter jihad” crowd will of course pretend that they had nothing to do with this incident even as they seek to put up more anti-Muslim advertisements.

A woman who told police she shoved a man to his death off a subway platform into the path of a train because she has hated Muslims and thought he was one was charged Saturday with murder as a hate crime, prosecutors said. (Dec. 29)
Update: Just as I suspected, Geller is trying to distance herself — I won’t link to her cesspit of hate, but here’s a snippet:
First off, my ads are not up yet in the subways. They are not scheduled to go up until January 7, 2013. And even if they were, how does that make me responsible? This murderess states most emphatically what her motive was: September 11. Why aren’t the Islamic supremacists blaming jihad? Al Qaeda? Because they share AQ’s ideology and goals and they are going to try to use this senseless murder to silence critics of genocide, ethnic cleansing and anti-humanism. Jihadists can kill thousands in the cause of Islam and the media, the left and political elites are OK with that, but some nut does something nuts and I am responsible? That’s the war that we are in.
And she says she has been beating people up since 9/11/01. How is it that this lunatic has been able to roam the streets for 11 years? Another abject failure of our mental health system.
Notice how she cunningly parrots the current party line about mental health to support the NRA and gun nuts. Prior to the Newtown massacre the only position the far right wing had on mental health was how much funding they could take away from it at all levels.
Also further down the page is a picture of one of her anti Muslim advertisements up at a kiosk sent in by one of her readers on the 27th. The misleading statement Pam Geller made about the ads not being up yet in the subways is only true because the advertisement pictured is up in an above ground station in the photo from the 27th.
