Muslim Bites (Non-Halal) Dog

By Debbie Schlussel
The mainstream media and Muslims–especially HAMAS front-group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations)–are making a big deal out of a story in which a Muslim man “saved” three Jews from attack in the New York subway from people who objected to them saying “Happy Chanukah” to subway riders.
That’s great. But ya know, there’s a reason anti-Semitism is at its highest levels since the Holocaust. And the Muslim religion is a big reason. So because one guy bucked his entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly Jew-haters, it’s really not a big deal. It’s hardly an H2O molecule in an ocean.
If only the media made as big of a deal of the regular assassinations of Jews–on a daily basis–by Muslims in and around Israel, as they are of this one guy, then we’d be in biz.

Jews Saved on Subway By Muslim Anomaly

But they (the Mainstream Media) don’t. They don’t care about Jews being slaughtered by Muslims. It happens every day. And Jewish lives just ain’t that important to them. Just like they weren’t too important to them, during the Holocaust, when the New York Times and other papers wouldn’t cover it and covered it up.
So, to the Muslim guy who helped these Jews under attack, I say, good for you. You are courageous. But where are the other 1.6 billion of your fellow co-religionists?
There at a mosque listening to a sermon about killing Jews and Christians and others, or watching Al-Jazeera or Al-Manar or Al-Arabiya hearing similar instructions. Or at a bookstore helping make Mein Kampf a continued best-seller in the Muslim world. Or partying to Daniel “I am a Jew” Pearl and Nick Berg videos.
They’re the ones who tell me everything I need to know about your faith. Not your one anomalous and meaningless instance of Muslim Man Bites Non-Halal Dog.
The consistent trend in your religion is so far in the other direction, it fell off the continuum.

I’ve been reading pieces of this story here and there all day and had exactly the same reaction as you, Debbie.
I couldn’t agree with you more.

I think you could be a bit more generous to this guy, who took a beating for his trouble.
[K: I WAS GENEROUS. I NOTED HE WAS COURAGEOUS, WHICH HE WAS. GREAT FOR HIM. BUT THE WAY THIS STORY IS BEING TOUTED THROUGHOUT THE MEDIA AS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF MUSLIM BEHAVIOR TOWARDS JEWS, JUST ISN'T THE TRUTH. THIS IS A BLIP IN THE OTHER DIRECTION IN A LONG LINE OF ANTI-JEWISH BEHAVIOR. TO SAY ANYTHING OTHERWISE IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. DS]

kishke on December 13, 2007 at 5:05 pm

The attackers were Christian. One even had a Christ tattoo displayed. Where’s the rant about the rotten Christians?
[W: WHEN THERE IS A TREND OF CHRISTIANS, THEN I WILL SAY IT IS A CHRISTIAN THING. BUT THE TREND, AS I'VE NOTED, IS MUSLIMS ATTACKING JEWS. THIS IS A COMPLETELY ANOMALOUS SITUATION, AS I WROTE. DS]

wonkette on December 13, 2007 at 5:19 pm

Hmmmm. I’d say, historically, that there was a trend of Christians attacking Jews. There was, for example . . . . . the Holocaust? The Inquisition? Blood Libel?
[W: YOU'RE GOING BACK TO 1492 WITH THE INQUISITION? YES, THERE WERE CHRISTIAN ATTACKS ON JEWS, BUT THAT HASN'T HAPPENED IN DECADES. MUSLIM ATTACKS, AS YOU WELL KNOW, HAPPEN A GREAT DEAL AGAINST JEWS. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE JIHAD. DS]

wonkette on December 13, 2007 at 5:23 pm

There ain’t 1.6b Muslims – it’s more like 1.3-1.5b. Muslims like inflating their own numbers – but don’t do it for them.
Just hope this guy doesn’t get to date or marry any of them, as the above photo seems to indicate. Last thing we need is more infidels – Jew or Gentile – reciting the Shehada, or for that matter, more infidel women manufacturing Muslim babies to increase the magnitude of Muslim claims on everything.

“So because one guy bucked his entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly Jew-haters, it’s really not a big deal. It’s hardly an H2O molecule in an ocean.”
What’s new? The MSM and multicultural pundits have been doing the very same thing for years. Ignoring what the masses do and exemplifying what an outlier does as being the norm. It works real well in reverse too.

AlturaCt on December 13, 2007 at 8:20 pm

“So because one guy bucked his entire religion of 1.6 billion mostly Jew-haters, it’s really not a big deal.”
In my humble opinion, this is why it IS a big deal. The problem is that more than a few press reports will (as you point out) ignore the prevalance of anti-Semitism among Muslims. Nonetheless, I think it’s good that somebody held these Muslims up as role models.
I’d also point out that a Pakistani gas station attendent in Rogers Park (Chicago) intervened to stop a firebombing of a synagogue not too long ago.
This is the behavior we want from Muslims. Unfortunately, we don’t expect it and there are very good reasons for our low expectations. That’s the message.
In the mean time, I’m not feeling quite as thankless as you are about this incident.

“WHEN THERE IS A TREND OF CHRISTIANS, THEN I WILL SAY IT IS A CHRISTIAN THING. BUT THE TREND, AS I’VE NOTED, IS MUSLIMS ATTACKING JEWS. THIS IS A COMPLETELY ANOMALOUS SITUATION, AS I WROTE. DS”
There is a trend of Christians and it is every bit as devestating as Muslim anti-Semitism. The Presbyterian Church darn near passed a divest-Israel and boycott proposal. Muslim anti-Semitism may be the “hard-core-porn” of the Jew-hatting world, but there’s a TON of “soft-core-porn” Jew-hating amongst Christian churches and clergymen in the United States. That’s the real danger.
[TINSC: YOU HAVE A POINT ABOUT THE PCUSA, THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, AND CERTAIN OTHER CLERGY IN OTHER CHRISTIAN ESTABLISHMENTS. I DON'T DENY IT. BUT THEY ARE NOT OUT IN THE STREETS KILLING JEWS. THE MAJOR PROB IS THE MUSLIMS. MANY CHRISTIANS, LIKE EVANGELICALS, ARE VERY PRO-ISRAEL AND VERY PHILO-SEMITIC. DS]
Then there’s the Christian Identity movement which is quite active in our state, Debbie! Don’t pretend that Christian anti-Semitism doesn’t exist just because Evangelicals support Jews and Israel. Jimmy Carter routinely reminds us that he’s a Christian and there are plenty more like him.

There is NO Santa Claus on December 13, 2007 at 8:34 pm

I happen to live in the city where this took place. It’s commonplace that Christians and Jews trade greetings with one another without being hostile. “Happy Hannukah” is NOT a hostile greeting, neither is “Merry Christmas” and people of GOOD WILL aren’t “offended” by either greeting. The “Christians” in this story are an embarrassment to the rest of us who LOVE Jewish Jesus!

HelyeahWinnie on December 13, 2007 at 9:45 pm

wonkette, you almost had me convinced you are really concerned about the Jews except for the fact your own blog is full of vile antisemitic comments.

Gary Rosen on December 14, 2007 at 2:37 am

Debbie, as a religious Jew, you are familiar with the story of Noach, and the comment the Torah makes about how Noach was a righteous man in his generation. Commentators ask what exactly does this phrase mean, “righteous in his generation”? Was Noach righteous in comparison to his sinful generation? That would imply that he wasn’t terribly righteous either, just more righteous than the others. Or was Noach righteous DESPITE living among a sinful generation? That would imply that he was super righteous, because we all know how powerful negative influences can be on us.
I see this Muslim young man as an example of the latter — he is righteous DESPITE his community of Muslims and their influence on him. I hold him in high regard, because I hold Muslims in such low regard. I am glad that the media reported on this story because we do need to give credit where credit is due. However . . .
His individual merits aside, I do see your point and I do agree with you 100% that the media wants to take an isolated incident involving a very special individual Muslim, and offer it as proof of something larger, which is a complete falsehood — that is, “See? Muslims are not bad, they’re good!” Your point about the media ignoring the wholesale slaughter perpetrated by Muslims the world over is also well taken.
As for the thing about Christians, well, I happen to have a deep fondness for Zionist Christians and since they seem to be the majority (at least, I think so) in America, I rarely speak negatively about Christians in general. But I do think that No Santa Claus also has a point — there are still old school Christians in America who are very much anti-Israel and antisemitic. It’s just good to always keep our eyes open. We are, as usual, in a battle for our existence.
The thugs on the subway don’t strike me as practicing Christians with current day sensibilities in any event. Their names belie their ethnicity as Slavic. Slavs are notoriously antisemitic and the eastern european version of Christianity would be responsible for that in some part, I’m sure.

AmericanJewess on December 14, 2007 at 2:55 am

Oh, one more thing — I just had to laugh at the CAIR story. Meanwhile, CAIR officials are on the back line to the Mad Mullahs, seeing to it that a fatwah is issued for this young man. Saving Jews? BEHEAD HIM!

AmericanJewess on December 14, 2007 at 2:57 am

how ironic that you think jumping a jew just because theyíre jew is wrongÖbut hating a muslim just because theyíre muslim isnít.

skouti on December 14, 2007 at 6:23 am

Skouti, you must think you’re pretty clever coming up with that, but your premise is all wrong. Debbie doesn’t “hate Muslims just because they’re Muslims.” Look at the numbers, Skouti. Read the news. Open your eyes. Pay attention. Virtually ALL of the violence in the world today is being perpetrated by Muslims. That is not hateful; that is merely a fact. One is not a bigot merely because one calls attention to bigotry.

AmericanJewess on December 14, 2007 at 8:27 am

thanks for proving my point :)
i won’t stress you further by asking you to prove you “claim” that “Virtually ALL of the violence in the world today is being perpetrated by Muslims”
Debbie doesn’t “hate Muslims just because they’re Muslims.”
Debbie just so-ooooo misunderstood on that :)

skouti on December 14, 2007 at 8:48 am

“Virtually ALL of the violence in the world today is being perpetrated by Muslims.”
Really American Jewess?
I did not know that.
The IRA are in Belfast are Muslims? Who knew? How about the UVF on the other side of Belfast, they must be Muslims too! Somebody should tell them, they are fighting their Muslim brothers!! If only they knew!!
Then of course we have ETA, carrying out a war for an independent Basque country. Silly old me, I thought they were catholics!
Then there are the Maoist ‘Shinning Path’ Army in Peru. They don’t look like Muslims to me, but what do I know?
Then there’s the Marxist PKK, fighting a war to ‘liberate’ northern Iraq and eastern Turkey. Not sure how they square their Marxist ideology with Islam at all, but I’m sure American Jewess can explain that one to us.
Then of course there are the Tamil Tigers fighting for independence for the Tamil people of Sri Lanka. Can’t actually see any reference to them being Muslims anywhere at all really. Maybe A-J has a better class of Google than me!
I could go on all afternoon, but I think I have made my point to anyone with a functioning brain. I’ve got plenty more examples of non-Muslim violence if you want ‘em.
Did I mention the CIA analysis that proved that the majority of the world’s suicide bombers have not been Muslims? It’s true, look it up on your better-class google. Mind you that’s from a CIA report, and they’re probably all Muslims too, right?

You did now. I looked it up on Google; found nothing. Kindly provide a source for your claim.

kishke on December 14, 2007 at 12:37 pm

I wonder why something that seems to be positive is turned into something ugly by the posters here. A guy who happens to be a Muslim is condemned for doing the right thing. The Christians who did the attack are practically forgotten. A Muslim can perform the most heroic act and at the end of the day be trashed for simply being a Muslim.

13 Martyrs on December 14, 2007 at 6:19 pm

Debbie, the people who were attacked were about as Jewish as a ham sandwhich. Maybe the assailants can use that in their defense.

You are a complete idiot, AmericanJewess. Next time do as Mr. T says and just shut up, fool!

Norman Blitzer on December 15, 2007 at 12:12 am

For all you Useful Idiots who wish to remain in denial, here are some cold hard numbers for you to chew on. Go to this link, scroll to the bottom for “List of Islamic Attacks for the Past Two Months,” and check the archives listed below that for all the OTHER months and years prior to the current list. The numbers are staggering. The only thing that Muslims excel at is MURDER. You can follow the path of appeasement if you wish, that is, until they kill you.

“Did I mention the CIA analysis that proved that the majority of the world’s suicide bombers have not been Muslims?

Well yes Kishkie, I kindly will.
Kishkie, itís amazing how you rightistís research skills melt away when researching truth that doesnít fit your prejudices. The evidence for this is all over the internet. Don’t they have Google where you live?
If you are actually interested in learning something about this, you can start by reading Robert Papeís excellent book: ëDying to Win ñ The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism.í
Hereís an extended prÈcis of the book.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dying_to_Win:_The_Strategic_Logic_of_Suicide_Terrorism
FACT: Suicide terrorism is not primarily a product of Islamic fundamentalism. 

FACT: The world’s leading practitioners of suicide terrorism are the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka – a secular, Marxist-Leninist group drawn from Hindu families. 

FACT: Ninety-five percent of suicide terrorist attacks occur as part of coherent campaigns organized by large militant organizations with significant public support. 

FACT: Every suicide terrorist campaign has had a clear goal that is secular and political: to compel a modern democracy to withdraw military forces from the territory that the terrorists view as their homeland. 

FACT: Al-Qaeda fits the above pattern. Although Saudi Arabia is not under American military occupation per se, one major objective of al-Qaeda is the expulsion of U.S. troops from the Persian Gulf region, and as a result there have been repeated attacks by terrorists loyal to Osama bin Laden against American troops in Saudi Arabia and the region as a whole. 

FACT: Despite their rhetoric, democracies – including the United States – have routinely made concessions to suicide terrorists. Suicide terrorism is on the rise because terrorists have learned that it’s effective.

Just looking at the way you guys bicker in this discourse is just pathetic and childish,almost making me forget that you are adults.No Pasaran,Norman Blitzer,and American Jewess,Kishkeh; get a hold of yourselves!!
The main point of this story comes to show us all that there are good people among the bad people in every race,and religion. Yes, there were few of the many nazis that were sympathetic towards the plight of the jews and even helped them survive.True, a good portion of global terrorism are instigated by muslims in large but it doesn’t mean all muslims favor such attacks. Most of them abhor the oppression they are subjected to and cherish the freedoms and rights we enjoy.Let us not make light of this story and disparage this good man’s heroism. He is the rose among the weeds of his radical islamic counterparts.

Jew Chick on December 15, 2007 at 6:30 pm

JewChick, don’t include me in your scolding. If you actually read my comments, particularly regarding the young Muslim man who came to the aid of Jewish kids, you will see that I have said nothing wrong, nor contradicted anything you said on the subject. Instead, I was attacked by Blitzer and NP right off the bat, and I defended myself. I will continue to be vocal about the violence of Islam and its horrible impact on the world today. It is clear from some of these comments that that too many people need more education about Islam.

AmericanJewess on December 15, 2007 at 11:56 pm

“I was attacked by Blitzer and NP right off the bat…”
Oh grow up!
Nobody attacked you. We simply pointed out that your stated ‘fact’…
“Virtually ALL of the violence in the world today is being perpetrated by Muslims.”
…is totally WRONG. Demonstrably WRONG. Which we proved beyond doubt.
If you want people to stop “attacking” you then you should stop trying to pass off your bigoted opinions as provable truth.

Uh,thanks for the tip but I’ll stay in any kitchen(or furnace if you prefer) I want. If you love the heat, I suggest you start a blog site of your own since you love to cook up a lot of controversy.In the event you do happen to create your own website,I wish you all the best of luck luck attracting readers as I would with any liberal.
We all have to come to a mutual conclusion,don’t we? The media is already digging a grave to bury this issue,perhaps for good.

Jew Chick on December 16, 2007 at 1:36 pm

“Uh,thanks for the tip but I’ll stay in any kitchen(or furnace if you prefer)…”
Oh right, because I refuse to join you in hating Muslims, I must be a Nazi sympathizer, is that what you are saying?

“I wish you all the best of luck luck attracting readers as I would with any liberal.”
My blog does just fine, thank you very much – and for the 1000th time I am not a Liberal, I am a Socialist.
