Sudden Jihad Syndrome?: Missing Egyptian “Devout Muslim” Drove Into San Diego Nightclub Crowd, Injured 36

By Debbie Schlussel

On Saturday Night in San Diego, there were echoes of Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar’s Jeep jihad. This time, the Muslim driver’s targets weren’t American college students in North Carolina. They were American nightclub-goers celebrating an early Valentine’s Day on the opposite American coast.  Different location, same jihadist method, same religion of the perpetrator.


Devout Muslim Osama Hassan Daly Drove Into San Diego Nightclub Crowd

As we’re told in every single case in which a Muslim attacks Americans, the usual narrative is already in place here, with Osama “Sam” Hassan Daly, a devout Egyptian Muslim cab driver, who drove into a crowd of Americans at the San Diego nightclub where he’s been a frequent patron.  Daly is now missing, and he may have fled back to Egypt, after being released from a hospital by police.  Daly injured 36 people in his attack.

And, as in the case of Times Square Bomber Faisal Shahzad, another Muslim, we’re being told that Daly was “upset” that his house was in foreclosure. Yeah, it’s not jihad. It’s foreclosure. That’s the ticket. Why is it that all the “foreclosed” who try to kill multiple Americans are Muslim? Could it be that this is about Islam and not foreclosure? Isn’t there a reason we don’t see millions of other foreclosed upon Americans going on violent rampages . . . just mostly the Muslim ones?

One of the patrons into whom Daly deliberately drove is Dominique Gambale, a mother of two and beautiful tennis player, whose leg nearly had to be amputated after Daly drove into her and pinned it.  Hmmm . . . I wonder what Daly’s immigration status was.  Wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t here legally. So does this sound to you like the actions of someone who is “mentally ill” or someone imitating other Muslims who’ve deliberately driven into people in the name of jihad against the West? I vote the latter:

San Diego police served a search warrant on Daly’s Clairemont home about midnight Saturday and seized some of Daly’s property, said his roommate, Dan Rose. Daly has not returned home and has not spoken to his roommate since the crash.

“As far as we know, it’s an unfortunate accident,” Rose said.

Rose described Daly was a “pretty solitary man” who is devoutly Muslim. Rose rented a room from Daly two months ago but was recently given until the end of the month to move out because the house is in foreclosure.

Daly’s plan was to move back to his home country of Egypt, Rose said.

Daly filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in May 2007, but a judge dismissed the case at Daly’s request nine months later, according to court documents.


Friday night was supposed to be a special night for Dominique. She was out celebrating an early Valentine’s Day with her husband James, a San Diego patent lawyer.

As for the crash, some victims don’t believe it was an accident.

“No horns, no brakes, no screeching no yelling – not anyone saying – get out of the way.”

“All these people were out there waiting in line for their cabs, it was just the worst possible time.” . . .

Gambale’s injuries weren’t unlike some of the war wounds that Girard tended while he served as a military surgeon at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego’s Balboa Park from 2002 to 2007. “This is comparable to severe blast injuries or gunshot wounds that I’ve taken care of,” he said.

Gambale will have more surgery later this week to remove more tissue and debris. If all goes well with that procedure, plastic surgeons next week could reconstruct her leg bones with fragments taken from her hip and close the wound with skin grafts.

One of the biggest challenges facing doctors is replacing a 2-inch piece of her shin bone that had to be removed because it was too badly damaged to save. At some point, surgeons will fill the space with a bone graft or use screws and pins to incrementally stretch new bone across the space.

Gambale also might suffer chronic pain from the injuries, and bone infections will remain a risk for years to come, Girard said. . . .

The horrifying scene occurred about 1:50 a.m. Saturday outside the Stingaree nightclub at 454 Sixth Ave.

Owners and friends of the downtown restaurant Darband say the cab driver, Sam Hassan Daly, is known to them as “Osama” and was a frequent visitor to the establishment. . . .

Stingaree owner James Brennan told The San Diego Union-Tribune the cabbie was swinging around a pair of scissors at one of the club managers.

“We are treating this as an unfortunate accident,’ Lt. Rick O’Hanlon said. “We’re checking into the cab driver’s background. We’re in the process of reviewing surveillance tapes and looking for any others.’

Ron Pizarro, 31, said he was in the club near the doorwhen he heard the crash.

“I saw the cab coming through the crowd and people bouncing off the car,’ he said.

Sorry, but this doesn’t sound like an accident at all. It sounds very deliberate. And, like I said, it sounds just like the jihadist massacre by Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar, who drove his jeep into a crowd of North Carolina college students.

    Great story, well told.

    moeursalen on February 16, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    I would bet his religion wasn’t mentioned in MSM accounts.

    The leftust moonbats that showed up on the Lara Logan enmasse won’t appear here.

    Its kinda difficult to defend jihad against Americans, unlike say the stupidity of a certain MSM reporter.

    This is Islam, stupid. Nothing else.

    NormanF on February 16, 2011 at 2:29 pm

I thought “devout” muslims didn’t go to bars?

Seems more than a coincidence that he just happened to run into people outside the same bar he caused trouble at.
Yeah,maybe he had planned on leaving the country all along after this little “accident”

ebayer on February 16, 2011 at 11:23 am

I can’t believe that in today’s world, there are people like you, Debbie, who are allowed to spurt out the BS and hate-filled rhetoric your website delivers to us. I know it’s my choice to view your ‘writings’ and I will never visit again.

You disgust me, and hopefully everyone else.

Roger on February 16, 2011 at 11:26 am

    A frenzied lunatic purposely drives his car into a crowd, and it’s Schlussel who’s the hateful one?

    Alright then.

    Cold static on February 16, 2011 at 11:46 am

      He or it is squealing like a stuck pig, and is incapable of even showing nominal compassion for the woman who was so hideously injured. Islam is the most narcissistic of religions.

      Worry01 on February 17, 2011 at 2:01 am

    Funny how this story seems to have died in the MSM.

    Occam's Tool on February 16, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    That’s a shame

    Don’t let the door hit your misogynistic ass on the way out, Roger.

    No Muslim slave on February 16, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Oh Roger, spare me and get lost you moonbot jerk. I bet you were one of many jackasses who posted on this website last night on the other topic of Ms. Logan being sexually violated by muslim fanatics. Roger, are you going to condemn this man for driving his vehicle into that nightclub in California or are you going to continue to blame the messenger for giving out the exact facts?

    Your right Debbie, this incident is similar to the one that happend in Chapel Hill, NC a number of years ago, when a muslim student from UNC campus drove his vehicle onto campus and wanted to target his fellow college-mates. Since then, that guy has been arrested and kicked out of the University of North Carolina for his crimes against the students. Now this guy deserves the same punishment for what he did to those people in that nightclub in southern California.

      Ms. Logan was molested by a group of Hosni Mubarak’s paid thugs. If you recall many of them harrassed and attacked other journalists as well. What a bunch of idiots you people on here are. How about the ever growing scandal of Catholic clergy sexually abusing children? That must mean ALL Catholics are pedophiles, right? Isn’t that how you narrow little black and white minds work? If you believe in collective guilt / collective responsibility for one group, then you must apply the same logic to all groups.

      John on February 16, 2011 at 2:23 pm

        “Ms. Logan was molested by a group of Hosni Mubarak’s paid thugs.”

        WRONG, you got it all backwards John, Ms. Logan was sexually violated by fanatical muslim throwbacks who have no respect for women in general, once again, your parroting the same faux talking points and not knowing what the hell your talking about, if you’ve also notice, in the last weeks of the protest, the only ones who where protesting where islamist zealots who are extremely fanatical, not Mubarak protestors or regular people!

        “How about the ever growing scandal of Catholic clergy sexually abusing children?”

        Stupid, guess what, those happen to be a very small number of clergy that does disgusting stuff like that, and guess what, those clergy who did those hideous stuff have stepped down from that position. Why the hell are you apologizing for Islam? I have a question for you, which religion beats their women, oppress their women, stone their women for adultery, etc. is it, a) christianity, b) judiasm, c) hinduism, d) buddishim, e) agnosticism, f) islam, g) none of the above? We all know the answer to the question John, and it’s all FACTS, it’s not us being narrow-minded as you claim.

        PS, what are your feelings about this guy running his vehicle into that nightclub in California last weekend? You know that the perpatrator happend to be a “muslim”, right! And the authories are looking for him for his crime against those people in that club, what he did was criminal, period.

        “A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

        Sean R. on February 16, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Roger…To buy into what you believe requires a very special, unique kind of “STUPID”. Everyone knows that islamic jihad holds a strong liberating attraction for demonic psychopathic killers. “Allah told me to do it.” But Allah is BULLSHIT and is kept in business by blood sucking death worshiping islamists: the muslim brotherhood, cair, etc. Islamists are the antithist of “multiculturalism” and contribute NOTHING good to Western Civilization. All future immigration to the West by islamists should be barred. Those currently residing in the West should be “kicked” out.

    joesixpack31 on February 16, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Actually Roger, no one but an Islamist would show absolutely no compassion for the woman who is probably crippled for life. You would probably compassionately give that cabbie shelter from the big bad Islamophobia out there, since you are as devout as he is no doubt.

    Worry01 on February 17, 2011 at 1:56 am

the muslim brotherhood

hill billy on February 16, 2011 at 11:41 am

Roger, if you leave for good, Thank You.

CaliforniaScreaming on February 16, 2011 at 11:43 am

how does one place a photo into th icon square?

hill billy on February 16, 2011 at 11:52 am

Accident? The guy stops at a light, slowly crosses the street with traffic then plows into a crowd of thirty people deliberately pushing them against a store front. If this was a non-muslim he would be in custody. And all of this when the MB is about to take over Egypt. Hmmm

pat on February 16, 2011 at 11:52 am

When my wife and I were watching the news and saw this story and they wouldn’t say a word about the driver we knew then that he would turn out to be a muslim!

quietman on February 16, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Search early stories on this accident in San Diego Tribune. They all said and I looked for a couple days after, that the crowd attacked and beatup the driver and pulled him out of the car until police saved him. They also despite him driving an identifiable taxi – they refused to release his name.


Why on earth would a crowd beat up the driver of a car(police claimed he said he BLACKED out)?

Why would police immediately NOT release his name?

Bill C. on February 16, 2011 at 12:03 pm

The Muslim “prophet” Mohammad was an evil child molester (he married a 9 year old girl) and a supporter of slavery (slavery is evil).

Roommate of Stingaree Cab Driver says He Feared for His Life


Rose said he feared the 52-year-old Egyptian born cab driver. “Just very irrational behavior, um I don’t know if it was necessarily a terroristic type thing or maybe he’s just imbalanced.”

duane on February 16, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Exactly you have touched down on another issue. All this purposeful overbreedingby Muslims includes MUCH INBREEDING!

    Bill C. on February 16, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Treating it as an unfortunate accident? Really?

Musiccgirl on February 16, 2011 at 12:37 pm

When I read the original news reports few days ago, local MSM did not bother to publish the taxi driver’s name ever after the police knew of the driver’s name upon investigation of taxi cab involved in the crash. I suspected a Muslim taxi driver who did this, since it’s a well-known fact the majority of taxi drivers nationwide are Muslim.

Thank you, Debbie, for proving this. Damn MSM, always lying and covering up Muslim perpetrators and blaming the victims.

Bobby on February 16, 2011 at 12:45 pm

At least the police made sure he got away. All the way back to Egypt no less. I’m sure he was just upset he didn’t get to participate in the carnage over there. He was just celebrating like all the other Muslims were doing in Egypt. I’m sure they would hate to have to charge him with anything, cause it would go against this governments mantra on how Muslims are “THE AMERICAN FAMILY”

wolf2012 on February 16, 2011 at 12:51 pm

The US Media is complicit with jihad when they refuse to look at the obvious (occum’s razor), pretend their is no coinkydink (Islam) and when they willfully cover up a person’s religion (Islam) and that they are Muslim.

We knew it was bad, but now we can actually taste it. The previous thread is filled with woefully misguided loons.

How can something so easy to read be so hard to reach. People ruin everything.

Skunky on February 16, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Reading back through Debbie’s articles I found something interesting.

All articles about the Mumbai massacre-comments LESS than 20

Islamist propogasist gets attacked in Egypt-OVER 600

So to sum up-Jew’s are massacred-who cares, Islamic propoganda reporter gets attacked- Conservatives are Demons.

wolf2012 on February 16, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Yes Wolf, they are easily guided and very much part of the problem.

    I still don’t know what lefty site linked the thread, but I surmise that some dopey, Lefty loon (in high-dudgeon and unable to understand how DS came to her point of view (the proper one, if you ask me) linked it and well, apres moi, le deluge.

    Trouble is, these trolls have no idea what DS is talking about, Islam or anything that happens here. They are outrage, hate and 100% emotion. That gets one in trouble (and makes one look stupid) EVERYTIME. All the while, their willful ignornance is gonna hurt us down the road.

    When their “One Day of Hate” ends they will go back to being ignorant about Islam, forget how women and minorities suffer under the jihadi Mooooooslims and the raping of boys and girls.

    They are so stuck on emotion. It is sick and sad.

    This is the ONE place that talks of the threat openly. Trouble is, I even see lots of Conservatives unable to put the PC aside to listen and learn.

    Skunky on February 16, 2011 at 2:03 pm

      Even conservatives are in denial about Islam.

      This is an object lesson in why you do NOT want to be around Muslims and why we should cease importing them into America.

      We’re fortunate no one died in San Diego.

      However if people think this is the last such incident we’ll see think again.

      There are too many of them here for our personal comfort and they do not wish us well.

      NormanF on February 16, 2011 at 2:34 pm

@hill billy, when Debbie updated her her website there was an option to place an icon. After that I haven’t seen the option to change the icon. I believe you can do it with this website. Good Luck.


CaliforniaScreaming on February 16, 2011 at 3:04 pm


    hill billy on February 16, 2011 at 4:25 pm

For accuracy’s sake it should be noted that the cab driver is NOT missing but is still hospitalized. The know exactly where he is.

Danny on February 16, 2011 at 3:14 pm

It sounds like he is taking it out on Western culture. I find it curious that occurs as the bars let out. Wow, maximum amount of people hanging outside the bar and he he dozes off. At this time, every cab driver is moving and not sleeping.

Oh by the way, my favorite dive bar in the Gaslamp District is across the street from Stingaree, the Tivoli Bar. This is hitting too close to home.

CaliforniaScreaming on February 16, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Bastards. Next we’ll here he was driving a Toyota and had no control over the car. Too bad nobody had a nice weapons permit around there in lib town.

samurai on February 16, 2011 at 3:21 pm

Like the taxi driver in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada who dragged a young women for 2 miles under his taxi and didn’t know about it.

grog on February 16, 2011 at 4:16 pm

As soon as I saw the standard “name withheld” response from the police I thought it was a muslim. When they commented on a possible bomb being in the car, Then I knew it was. The bomb turned out to be a massager, but why would the crowd suddenly back off from the cab unless they saw the muslim and heard “bomb”. Typical, muslim survives his jihad attack and he is declared mentally ill.

ender on February 16, 2011 at 8:40 pm

In Israel there is a serious problem with Muslims running people over.

skzion on February 16, 2011 at 8:43 pm

They must have got it wrong. Not a taxi driver, a Taqiya driver.

Are they sure it was a Jeep Jihad? I would think he’d be in a Ford Imam-oline van.
