A boozed-up bigot used a pocket knife to viciously slash an innocent cab driver in Manhattan - just because the driver was Muslim, police said Wednesday.
Michael Enright, 21, of upstate New York, was charged with felony attempted murder as a hate crime - among other crimes - after the sick attack on Ahmed Sharif, 43, Tuesday night.
"I feel very sad," Sharif said, according to a statement released by the Taxi Workers Alliance. "I have been here more than 25 years. I have been driving a taxi more than 15 years. All four of my kids were born here."
Sharif, who was slashed in the throat, upper lip, arm and hand, said he believes the battle over the Ground Zero mosque has inflamed anti-Muslim sentiment in America.
"I never feel this hopeless and insecure before," the Queens man said in the statement. "Right now, the public sentiment is very serious (because of the Ground Zero mosque debate). All \[taxi\] drivers should be more careful."
Enright, of Brewster, was "very, very intoxicated" when he hailed Sharif's yellow cab shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday, a police source said.

And here comes the MSM onslaught. They can’t cover Obama’s report to the UN or minority on majority violence . . . but they’ll be all over this
Check and see his party affiliation.. it’s probably another liberal plant.
99 to 1 that this kid voted for ObIWONa in his first ever chance to vote.
Hey Ahmed, go tell your buddies to quit trying to destroy my country. They’re the ones provoking this civil unrest. You just happened to be an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire your troublemaker Muslim brothers started. Get mad at them or shut up.
That's what I was thinking.
Oh please. Every attack is first against Blacks, then it’s against Hispanics, and now everything is going to be against Muslims. Poppycock.
Obama will be giddy sensing if these attacks keep up he can start labeling right wingers as domestic terrorists
Yup..where they slash and burn Christians and then elevate the attackers to hero status.
This is a hate crime....hundreds of black youths attacking white folks at the Iowa State Fair is not....that is all....
NWO-ELITE/BILDEBERG/CFR/CENTRAL-BANKER plan is working! They just toasted each other!
Be at each other’s throat. Do not ask who bankrupted you? Who buried you in debt?
If it was the other way around, they would be screaming “It’s not a hate crime!!” from the rooftops.
He apparently has a sizeable rap sheet and he told the police he had recently been in Afghanistan making a documentary.
The media spin will be that this a conservative Tea Partier from rural upstate who carried out an attack because his favorite talk radio program encouraged him to do it.
The reality is that this guy is probably a mentally ill addict and it was a matter of time before he did something this vile to someone.
A man that attacks a MoHamHead because of his religion is a bigot, but when a MoHamHead attacks anybody else because of his religion, he’s not a bigot?
So, lesseeee ... that’s one attack against a MoHamHead, where the MoHamHead was hurt.
In the last year, MoHamHeads have MURDERED (that means KILLED) dozens of Americans on American soil because of their religion, and they are not bigots.
No slant there, right?
Who is the first bigot?
If the MoHamHeads had never tried to kill Americans, maybe they could just live in peace, like everybody else who has one religion or another or no religion.
But, NOOOO, their “prophet” tells them they must go on a holy jihad against all infidels and kill them where ever they find them.
Well, you gotta expect at least a little blowback for that,
This is all part of the Communist playbook to destroy this country and it is working.
It seems a majority of the people in this country are now so uneducated they see no problem with all these hate crime laws.
If things completely come apart and real Americans have to reassert the Constitution one of the first things we must do is make all of the liberal/leftist laws null and void and get back to or real principles.
Yeah right...and careful to accept guide dogs in the cab with their blind owner.
A botched robbery. No doubt. Being spun by the Muslim.
If is were the other way around they would be celebrating in the streets as did the woman in post #12 when she heard of the 3000 Americans killed on 9/11.
