See the Pattern?: Three Muslims Held in Anti-Gay Shooting

By Debbie Schlussel

A couple of years ago, I told you about Muslims who brutally beat a gay Georgetown University medical student, and they made it clear that it was because he was gay.



No, There is No Purple Jihad; Just Jihad Against Purple

Some people whined that the two Muslims were just random gay-bashers and that there was no pattern.  Well, I guess the executions of gays all over the Islamic world, under sharia (Islamic law), isn’t a pattern.  Nor is this latest incident, in which three Muslims shot BB guns at a man they thought was gay.  And authorities believe that these Muslims have been targeting gays in a series of similar attacks.  Religion of Peace, baby:

Three cousins from Hayward have been charged in San Francisco with a hate crime and assault for allegedly firing a BB rifle at the face of a man they believed was gay, an attack the men videotaped, authorities said Wednesday.

Mohammad Habibzada, Shafiq Hashemi and Sayed Bassam, all 24, are scheduled to be arraigned today in San Francisco Superior Court. They are free on $50,000 bond apiece.

The victim of Friday’s attack was walking on the 3200 block of 16th Street near Guerrero Street about 10 p.m. when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire with a BB rifle, police said.

The man was hit in the face . . . . He reported the shooting to police, who pulled over a car that matched the assailants’ vehicle a short distance away and arrested the three Hayward men.

Investigators believe the assailants chose the victim because he appeared to be gay. When the men were pulled over, police found a video camera that was used to film the shooting, investigators said.

Assistant District Attorney Victor Hwang, the prosecutor in the case, said the men are cooperating in the investigation.

PUH-LEEZE. They’re “cooperating” because they got caught and want a lighter punishment for their crime.

Authorities are looking into whether the attack was isolated or whether there have been similar BB gun shootings elsewhere in the Bay Area. Police have been unable to find victims to support any additional allegations, but Hwang said, “We believe we have the evidence to show that there was targeting of individuals who they believed to be gay.”

Try YouTube and jihadist sites. I’m confident you’ll find it’s hardly an isolated incident.

Like, I said, Religion of Peace . . . unless you’re gay, a woman, a Jew, a Christian, a Hindu, an animist, an American, an atheist, a Westerner, wearing a bikini, wearing pants, a human, etc., etc., etc., etc.

More Muslims in America . . . means more of this intolerance, violence, and barbaric Third Worldism.

Maybe the news here is that Muslims have actually been charged with a hate crime. About time.

How did they come up with the 50k to be free on bond?

Who cares? on March 5, 2010 at 1:08 pm

“Just three young men that misunderstand the teachings of Islam.” The MSM.
Wonder what the MSM will do when the Muslim community starts agitating for their release ,an apology and money.

pat on March 5, 2010 at 1:24 pm

That’s $150,000 in bail money. Just how did they come up with that? And speaking of GAY….Adult men playing with BB guns…and video taping it.

Bob on March 5, 2010 at 1:56 pm

The sad irony is many on the left that advocate for Islam would be the first to be persecuted under Sharia.

Sam Adams on March 5, 2010 at 2:58 pm

@ bob – they couldn’t get AK’s, thus the BB guns. Seems a muzzie male just doesn’t feel “whole” unless he’s toting some sort of weapon.

Graty Slapchop on March 5, 2010 at 3:28 pm

“Armed gays don’t get bashed.” — is the motto of the organization named Pink Pistols. They are a gay-gun rights organization that claims 60 Chapters in 33 states in the United States and Canada. They are gun-owning LGBT individuals, though neither status is mandatory for membership. Pink Pistols has been around since 2000. Their web site address is;

“Thirty-one states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible.”
–Jonathan Rauch, Salon Magazine, March 13, 2000

Just something for gays to consider since they are a target of the “religion of peace” goblins and trolls.

Rocky on March 5, 2010 at 3:41 pm

Khomeini cleverly used leftists in his campaign to depose the shah. Once they were no longer needed, well, you can guess what happened. And yet, gays, feminists, leftist Jews, and other useful idiots continue to support Islamists. Blissfully ignorant, like sheep the day before Eid.

adam on March 5, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Wow are we basing their religiion on their last names? Whose to say they AREN’T Chrisitans or maybe even agnostic or atheist? They are 3 stupid guys who did something thats been done to homosexuals by every race and religion since the beginning of time. They just happen to have Arabic last names. I don’t know who sounds more ignorant these 3 guys or the people who will spin this with no evidence that they are Muslims except their last names.

CC: Frickin’ giant clue: the guy’s name is Mohammad and the two others are his cousins, per the news report (and Hashemi is a Muslim name, too). Helloooo . . . . ? You’re right about someone sounding ignorant: the image in your mirror. Thank G-d you aren’t running American intelligence. On the other hand, given their ineptness and head-in-the-sand on Islam, maybe you are. DS

CalifornianChristian on March 5, 2010 at 5:15 pm


    & in words of John Wayne “We’ll remember you said that” Hope you’ll remember too when facts of the case become clear (although, as Ms. Schlussel has accurately stated, the facts are pretty clear) Actually not every faith has persecuted as violently homosexuals throughout history, not surprised you wouldnt know that.
    Dittos on Rocky Lore’s comment. Funny, how libs never ever once go after Islam. It’s called fear. Fear of what they’ll do to them as they’ve done to this SF victim.

    Like to close with this acute quote on Islam from mathematician Bertrand Russell (no Christian Conservative he)

    Bertrand Russell in The Practice and Theory of Bolshevism, published in 1920 wrote,

    “Bolshevism combines the characteristics of the French Revolution with those of the rise of Islam….Marx has taught that Communism is fatally predestined to come about; this produces a state of mind not unlike that of the early successors of Mahommet….”

    “Among religions, Bolshevism is to be reckoned with Mohammedanism rather than with Christianity and Buddhism. Christianity and Buddhism are primarily personal religions, with mystical doctrines and a love of contemplation. Mohammedanism and Bolshevism are practical, social, unspiritual, concerned to win the empire of this world.”

    You have a nice day.

    Jimmy on March 5, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    Really that’s your replay ….”well golly they sure sound Muslim so they must be the most extreme type of Muslim”? Wouldn’t that be much like saying your last name sounds German and you’ve got blue eyes and blond hair you must be a Natzi?
    If your going to call them Muslim make sure they are other wise your defeating you own argument.

    Pete Bone on March 6, 2010 at 7:34 pm

      Do Mohammad Habibzada, Shafiq Hashemi and Sayed Bassam sound like Norwegian names to you? Please get real. Your NAZI line about Debbie might impress people at your mosque, but not anywhere else. You really do need to work on your taqqiya. It is lousy.

      sorrow01 on March 7, 2010 at 10:05 am

      Sorry so late in replying — just wanted to say the Nazi analogy only works if Nazis are out there committing thousands of atrocities every year IN THE PRESENT TIME.

      impeachthedude on February 7, 2011 at 4:33 pm

I’m pretty sure if these thugs weren’t Muslim, liberals would be demanding hate crime charges. For some strange reason, gay rights groups never seem to go after radical Islam like they do Christianity.

Rocky Lore on March 5, 2010 at 5:24 pm


    That’s probably due to the curious lack of Baptist suicide bombers all over the world.

    LifeInaShoe on March 8, 2010 at 9:35 am

So we equate copulation among men with killing Jews? Am I not getting something? I grew up in another world, and the more I read of my Bible, the more frightened I become.

#1 Vato on March 5, 2010 at 8:54 pm

Hi Debbie-

As a regular reader of your site who shares many of your concerns and views, I am also sometimes uncomfortable as a conservative gay man with some of your ideas regarding LGB folks (not that you don’t often have good reason!). I want to thank you for this posting – it gave me a much better understanding where you are coming from and I truly appreciate that while we may not agree on every gay-related issue, we share a common concern when it comes to individual rights and the dangers of a “sharia mindset” spreading in our country.

(To Rocky: You’re right – although I don’t think this is the gay community avoiding hate crimes charges – it is liberals deciding that Muslims are the sexier of the two groups to side with)



Jeremy on March 5, 2010 at 10:06 pm

I live in Hayward and would love to know where these guys live or which corner market their family owns and operates. It’s despicable that they are even out on bail. Muslim or not, these guys need to removed from the gene pool of humanity.

jjaaron on March 6, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    thank you.

    esther on March 6, 2010 at 1:29 pm

It’s self loathing. Muzzie males are so sexually confused thanks to Islam, that they end up doing each other. Attacking gays assuages their guilt.

spiffo on March 6, 2010 at 5:00 pm

Well I guess even dung has a benefit when used as fertilizer. Seems to apply here between Muslims and sodomites.

Bill Ford on March 6, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    Why thanks, Bill, for that telling comment.

    skzion on March 7, 2010 at 8:24 pm

These Muslims, are they mocking Islam or promoting it..? Gay is an evil act and should be widely condemned. it undermines GODs purpose for mankind.


ONE LOVE KEEP US 2GETHER on March 7, 2010 at 9:04 am

To all Muslims, Muslim nations put together cannot defeat Israel the earlier you guys understand it the better.. Your Islam will only dominate in Islamic nations not in none Islamic nations.. Fools.. Destroying the World in the name of a religion which does not even exist.


Frank on March 7, 2010 at 9:11 am

When a Muslim who claims to serve the most supreme God involves in an ungodly act such as gay what does it portray,….?

Christian Nigeria

Christian Nigeria on March 7, 2010 at 9:16 am

When a Muslim cannot be himself, but instead impersonates a non-Muslim, what does it say about the Muslim?

sorrow01 on March 7, 2010 at 10:08 am

I heard there are no “gays” in IRAN…isnt that what the wacky muzzie leader said???? hmmmmmm…..he should know shoudnt he?

BIG IRISH on March 7, 2010 at 5:53 pm

Why is the person “Christian Nigeria” also writing as “ONE LOVE KEEP US 2GETHER”?

skzion on March 7, 2010 at 8:28 pm

You know, as I’ve said before, I really do think it would be possible to peel many gays away from any sympathy with jihad. The hard leftists (which tend to dominate major gay organizations) are hopeless, but there are plenty of gays who would see the light. Many do in Netherlands, after all. This sort of thing really is necessary to avoid creating a movement that can be attacked as anti-democratic.

skzion on March 7, 2010 at 8:44 pm

Hi skzion- Good point. I am gay and I have zero sympathy with anything even resembling jihad.

Jeremy on March 7, 2010 at 9:34 pm

Just as I thought: the troglodytes admit they came to SF to attack gays.

So not only are immigrant muzs almost invariably militant, they are almost always unemployed with nothing better to do than to boil over with anger at their kaffir hosts.

Kudos for charging them with mayhem–they easily could have put an eye out for allah.

Julie on March 8, 2010 at 9:54 pm

What is up with the illustration? It looks like it’s Photoshopped.

Larry on March 10, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Found the original version it was photoshopped from:

Larry on March 10, 2010 at 3:05 pm

i really wonder what this page is supporting?! it is an anti-islamic und pro-jewish page? or is it just a detached view of things happening in the us??!!

I would really like to hope it was detached…but being detached needs a lot of bravery and cosmopolitanism…

and i do not really see the pattern but a very lopsided report…with a touch of ignorance

rebecca on December 29, 2011 at 11:02 pm

they didnt know that the guy was gay okay it was dark at the moment and they were far far from the man they “shot” how can they tell that he was gay? lots of people go shoot others wit bb guns and record it? its even on youtube? just because their muslim doesnt mean anyhting..without them we wouldnt even know algebra. they are good people i have lots of muslim friends and all they want is no violence just peace and freedom. not be known as terrorists! they have beards so what? they wear religious what? its their religion! what if someone came upto you and asked you to take your cross off? point is to give them a chance their just like us nothing more to be said…all you news reporters dont even know the whole story so you just make one up.

unknown on November 8, 2012 at 10:48 pm

ALL religious people should be offered a chance to live in peace (give up your religion) or be slaughtered. Don’t forget that religion is faith based, this includes fascists/conservatives and even those pathetic neoliberal bullshitters.
