Since yesterday, plenty of readers have sent me the story about the latest intolerant, violent cab driver from the “Religion of Peace.”
This one, Ibrahim Ahmed, isn’t in Minneapolis, and he isn’t objecting to alcohol or guide dogs for the blind. Nope, Ahmed got into an argument over religion, and it ended in a hospital trip for at least one of his passengers, with serious injuries. After they paid him, Ahmed ran both his passengers down in his cab.
But I’m sure his religion is irrelevant. Because it’s the “Religion of Peace,” baby! Yeah.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A local cab driver allegedly tried to run over two customers after a fight over religion became heated.
The incident happened early Sunday morning on the Vanderbilt campus and left one man hospitalized and a cab driver arrested, said police
Two students visiting from Ohio were coming from a bar downtown when they got into an argument with their driver over religion, said police. After they paid the driver he allegedly ran them down in a parking lot.
Ibrihim Ahmned, of United Cab, was arrested and charged with assault, attempted homicide and theft. One of the passengers, Andrew Nelson, managed to outrun the cab but Jeremy Invus was taken to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries, said police.
Ahmed has been convicted of misdemeanors including evading arrest in a motor vehicle and driving on a suspended license, said police.
Ahmed was charged with theft because police said the license plate on his cab was listed as stolen. His bond is set at $300,000.
Independent Conservative has more details and good commentary. He saw video and says he believes the Muslim cabbie is Somalian (much like the cabbies in Minnesota).
Nashville–home of the Grand Ole’ Opry. Now, this story would make a great country song. I vote for “Git Along, Lil’ Infidel.” Close second: “Lookin’ for Peace in All the Wrong Places.”
