I rode on the wild side -- when road rage met anti-Semitism
JewishJournal.com ^ | 2007-01-12 | Gary Wexler

Posted on 01/14/2007 10:29:11 PM PST by Nachum

I am safe on the plane now.

On the way to Los Angeles International Airport this afternoon, I thought I was about to be murdered.

In the run-up to a weeklong business trip, I called the car service I've been using for years to pick me up at my home. The driver arrived promptly at 1:30 p.m., the arranged time.

The ride to the airport started out just fine. The driver began making small talk. I noticed he had a Jamaican flag on his dashboard, so I asked if he was Jamaican. He said he was, and he asked if I was American.

"Were you born in California?" he asked.

I told him I was born in Chicago, and he commented how different the two cities are. I asked him if he came directly to Los Angeles from Jamaica. He told me he was first in New York.

He was playing reggae music, so I told him I liked the music and asked if he was Rastafarian. He said he was and explained that Rastafarian is a form of Christianity. He asked what my religion was. I told him I was Jewish.

One of the things I like about the drivers of this company is that they are always from other countries. When I ride in their cars, I get to learn a lot about where the drivers come from and their views of life in America.

We were both quiet for a while, and then he began tapping to the rhythm of the music. I noticed he had a plethora of CDs stuffed into his visor. I asked him what other reggae or Rasta singers he had.

"My music is political," he said.

That was a pretty interesting comment, so I asked, "About what kind of politics?" "I hope as Jew," he now raised his voice and sneered, "you can take what I am about to say. My politics are about the Jews."

And then the rant began. Continuing to raise his voice, he told me that Mel Gibson knew what he was saying. He told me he used to favor the Jews until they, themselves, became the Hitler under whom they suffered. He told me that the Jews are indeed the root of all the world's problems today.

"The Jews, who were the victim of the white man, now think that they are white. They have forgotten and have become the oppressor," he said.

He continued to rant for another 10 minutes. Between his shrieking voice and the Jamaican accent, I could barely understand the things he was saying -- about Oprah becoming rich and just like the white man because of the Jews, and that Saddam Hussein's hanging was posted on the Internet because of the Jews. He then turned to look at me in the backseat, while driving on the freeway.

"You Jews are the cause of the black man's suffering today," he screamed at me as he took his hands off the wheel. "I suffer, because of you."

Until this point, I had been quiet.

"Please sir," I said calmly understanding my predicament, "please keep your hands on the wheel."

That was it.

"Just like a Jew -- always telling the world what to do," he responded. "Don't you worry about me. Worry about what you do in the world. You make my life miserable. I don't care if I die. Maybe I'm a terrorist, like my Palestinian and Arab brothers whose lives you have destroyed. Maybe I am just going to now crash this car and kill both of us."

He was completely hysterical. The car was swerving out of control.

I wanted to get off the freeway and onto a city street, so I could have an escape route to jump out of his car if need be.

"It would be best," I said quietly, "if you get off at Howard Hughes Drive, so that we can come directly into the airport the back way, because it is quicker, and I am late."

"There you go again, always knowing better than anyone else. I drive all the time. And now you Jews know better how I should drive."

He continued to rant. But he did get off on Howard Hughes.

"The tables are turning, mon," he said. "The tables are turning. You will no longer have the power. The world is sick of you and knows who you are."

We were now inside the airport, and I felt safer. I leaned forward, "You have no idea who I am or who my people are. All you did was spew hate."

"I don't want to listen to anything you have to say," he said. "You think about what I said. We've heard enough from you."

As he handed me my bags, he said, "Are you going to report me like the Jew did about Mel Gibson? Are you going to get all your Jewish organizations after me now?"

I walked into the airport, relieved to be alive and away from the guy. I thought about Gibson; about recently fired publisher Judith Regan, who was going to publish the O.J. Simpson book; about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad; about the brutal torture and killing of Ilan Halimi in France; about all the recent pronouncements of anti-Semitism throughout the world.

I looked around me and thought, "Who else hates us? Hates me? Do I need to live in fear right here in Los Angeles?"

Aside from studying the Holocaust and being marginally active in the Soviet Jewry movement, I never gave much thought to anti-Semitism around me. I believed it hardly existed and had little to do with living in the United States.

I was uncomfortable when other Jews talked and acted with what I considered to be a victim mentality. I drew my Jewish political lines around who saw the world as victims and those who saw the world as accepting. Victims were right wing. Those who saw acceptance were more liberal.

I remember my Wexner Heritage class of just nine short years ago and the many discussions we had about the golden age, in which we were living as Jews with growing world acceptance.

"Never have Jews lived with such freedom and openness," I recall one of the professors saying.

Israel was in a peace process. Jewish life was forming across the former Soviet Union. Israelis were attending conferences in Qatar. Here in Los Angeles, Peace Now was sponsoring dinners between its members and members of local Arab organizations.

Israelis were spending their Saturday afternoons shopping in the casbah of Nablus. Walls were coming down everywhere.

Indeed the driver was right about something -- the tables are turning, mon. People in high positions and people living at the grass-roots level are feeling empowered to hate Jews and articulate their feelings.

Perhaps the greatest resonance of the Gibson affair is that when a Hollywood somebody of such fame feels free to let fly his anti-Semitic beliefs, it gives permission to others to do the same. There is no doubt in my mind that the golden era of our acceptance is in decline. As Jews, we must see what its implications could be.

Personally, I am now faced with a terrible moral dilemma. This man knows where I live.

My wife stays in our house alone when I am away on frequent business trips. He is crazy, and I believe has great potential for violence.

If I report him, are we in danger? If I don't, is someone else? How safe are we in the world today?

Well, Gary, it sounds like it's time for you and your wife to buy his 'n' hers guns and learn how to use them. Then you won't have to worry about complicated moral dilemmas; you can just report this psycho without being concerned that he's going to hurt either one of you.

He should file a complaint with the man's company AND with the police because there was a violent threat. At least then he can get a restraining order against the man.

And the gun another poster suggested would not be a bad bit of protection.

The man is a discredit to the service industry. No mention was made if he stiffed his driver or if he still tipped him for the disservice.

Even a wealthy man is not safe from crazies. I thought it imprudent of him to identify himself as a Jew to a total stranger. Things are changing for Jews - and not for the better around the world.

I'd say report him, call the police, and buy a security system if one isn't owned, and a BIG gun. This kind of thing turns my stomach. I have been blessed to know 3 people of the Jewish faith in my life. One, a Jeweler. My Dad was fresh out of the Marines, no job, no place to stay when he met my Mother. He knew she was the only woman for him. The Jeweler never having laid eyes on my father before took my Grandmothers word that he was a decent and honest man, and let him open an account so he could put my Mothers Wedding Ring on layaway. We still do business 40 something years later with him and his Family. The second, a lovely Lady who could cook like you wouldn't believe. Lord how I miss her Shrimp Salad. The third, one of the best friends I ever had. I could pick up the phone right now and say "I need..." and they'd be there. The nutcase driver has no idea about the people he spews such vitriol about over their faith. God help us all.

I would have gone into the airport and called the cops. I would be d@mned if some rasti was going to terrorize me on my ride to the airport. He needs to be fired and deported. Too bad you didn't have scissors and didn't cut off his dreadlocks. What a scummer of a driver. He needs to go back to his country.

So are Jews to start hiding?
I have worn a magen David for over 30 years now. And I don't bother to tuck it under my blouse. I am in the process of converting just now, and I am not planning on hiding; I am planning on fighting if necessary. And I think the time is coming when we are going to have to do just that. This is just awful!

We in California aren't allowed to carry concealed when we go out (unless we're rich actors/actresses/politicians, who are the only ones who can get permission from the sheriff), but I think the author and his wife would benefit most from a gun or two kept in the home (which isn't illegal here...yet) because the taxi driver knows where they live.

In any case, that taxi driver is a danger not only to Jews, but also to anyone else who might disagree with his bigoted ideas. He belongs in jail.

This is just awful is right.......I didn't have a clue Rasti's were brothers to Muslims. I don't hide who I am or what I believe in for anyone or any reason nor should you. None of us should live in fear...... But when dealing with kooks and wanna be terrorists I draw the line. I would just refuse to let some scummer driver like that make me live in fear. His arse needs to be deported and maybe we need to see if Jamaica is harboring terrorists. God knows they seem to be all over the place..... I am so sick of them and the killing. If we don't put an end to them now we are never going to be rid of them and life as we know it will not be the same for our children.... I truly believe Islamics has been planning for awhile to try this BS.... I will be d@mned if I will ever wear a burka. We need to deport more of these religion of peace people and their families, stop allowing them into our country and say enough is enough.

Who you? Nah.... I knew one who had those dreads down to the ground. He had to wrap them around his head and now that I think of it he did wear a turban. That was when I lived in Jersey City and they had their so called posses. They were all trying to scare people and outside of their pot smoking nobody really cared too much about them unless their music was too loud. Now I wonder if that guy was into something more then just dealing pot, at least I assume he was a pot dealer , the rest of the neighborhood was. I couldn't wait to move to the NJ shore where things are more normal for NJ. lol I don't think I could have sat through that BS. I would have dialed 911 on my cell or went directly to the airport police. Something doesn't add up here. Maybe its me but what would you have done?

Thanks for using the word "taxi." I am constantly amazed at people who use a "car service" to go places.

It makes some sense in NYC, but other places, it just sounds put-on, like they have a special chauffeured limo that drives them everywhere, because they are too important to drive themselves.

He said he had used this "car service" for many years. LOL, I've called Yellow Cab a couple of times in my life, too - but they certainly don't know me and I don't know their drivers. This author implied that having the same "car service" all these years should've entitled him to deferential treatment.

If it had been me, I would have tipped him. Tipped him over. With a kick to the face. (After he had stopped the vehicle, of course).

The scary thing is that these Third World bigots want us to live (and die) in fear. The scarier thing is that the DUmmie leadership has no problem with that. But we won't let them get what they want. No dreadlocked Rastafarian or bug-eyed Pelosi will be dancing on our graves.

If it ever comes down to having to wear one we could hide guns under them so we could shoot them. Thats the only good thing about those burkas..... Why we are bending over and kissing Muslim's arses is beyond me. I wouldn't have let any into this country after 9/11. and any I even thought had ties to terror would be out of here. But then I have been called a Islamist alarmist. I just don't see it that way. All Muslims seem to do is whine, moan and complain. Where are the Muslims of America speaking out and telling their brothers to stop the killing etc? I have only heard one do it and they condemned him... If they want to be in America they need to adapt to our way of life not us adapting to theirs.

The author should contact the driver thru the cab company and give him a chance to apologize. If that isn't forthcoming, drop a ton of bricks -- get his chauffer's license pulled; get him fired; file a police complaint; sue the cab company.

I like your tag. It made me think: I won't wear a burka, but I will wear my conceal/carry pistol.

One of the tenets of this country is freedom of religion--that means for everybody. It also means the freedom to practice your religion without intimidation. This OBVIOUSLY falls in the category of intimidation. The driver should be arrested AND deported. He obviously doesn't understand the concept of "religious freedom". (He may be here illegally anyway!)

Mr. Wexler needs to learn four words that the non victim mentality uses to deal with obnoxious people. Does he really think that his was the first time this driver emptied his spleen? Is he the only person in the world who has ever listened to an ignorant rant?

So he met a jerk, big deal, the world is full of them. Now he's shaking in his shoes because a taxi driver knows where he lives. This guy needs to grow a set of cahones.

He also needs to stop being a wimp and tell people like that to - "STFU."

Why? I go for trips that often exceed 10 days, it's cheaper to pay for car service then paying to park for 10+ days. I don't have to worry about my car getting broken into/damaged, and they take you right to the terminal, none of the shuttle bus garbage to deal with. You can sleep to/from and it's just one less thing to worry about.

What they going to charge him with? Hate crime? Forgitaboutit. The damned police will not charge a black with a hate crime. REMEMBER, ONLY WHITES CAN COMMIT HATE CRIMES, NOT BLACKS, A-RABS, MUZZIES, etc. Only Anglo-American white types who came from England/Scotland, etc. Remember, you are white, thus naturally a racists. Only whites are racists. Others are simply VICTIMS!!!

I think he lives in California; they aren't allowed to carry guns unless the Sheriff says its ok and most won't.

I live in Maryland where the laws are similar, and I don't allow anybody to tell me whether or not I can defend my life. But I wasn't even talking about carrying; I was suggesting that if this wimp is afraid his wife is going to be attacked while he's out of town, which is what he stated in the article, then a gun solves that problem nicely.

To be honest I have zero sympathy for people who say they are afraid of this or that but then refuse to take the step necessary to rectify the situation. They're more scared of guns and political incorrectness than they are of the bad guys.

There was a special on PBS last night about antisemitism throughout the ages. I happened to only be able to glance at a little bit of it, but wow....eye opening. Jews have been hated by everyone, including vehemently by Christians from about 70 AD on. In the 12th century, Jews were accused of kidnapping Christian children, killing them and draining their blood to be used in Matzo's. Today the Arab world accuses Jews of the same thing and Islamic television systematically and routinely broadcasts antisemitic propaganda.

It was very eye opening to see the way that Arab leaders openly accuse Jews of being in league with the devil and with being behind all of the worlds problems.

If this continues, there will be a time (again) when anyone who practices anything that remotely resembles "Jewish" religious practices will be persecuted the same as Jews for their faith.

Not all Jamaicans are stoned. Most Jamaicans are regular folks, who work hard and don't wear dreadlocks.
