The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.
But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit any easy stereotype: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project, and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.
And Intersections did not respond to two messages and the group does not appear to be picking up the phone. Enright did not respond to a message through his Facebook account.

Something smells funny.
Look for this to be buried in the MSM.
Another Freeper said that this was a Leftist attack intended to be blamed on the anti-MoHamHeads.
Guess s/he was right ...
Just how badly was this Muslim cabbie actually hurt?
I ain’t sayin’ nothin...
Amateur attempt to start the Reichstag on fire.

Why do people try and get away with things when they know Free Republic exists ??
Right out of the Tawana Brawley playbook.
Americans don’t fit the lefts’ political and class stereotypes. The followers of Gramsci continue to try to label us in order to divide and control us.
That’s why you continue to see leftwingers murdering abortion doctors, and leftwing diehard, 2nd amendment supporters.
There are advantages to being "under the radar".
Good question, but in this case, I think the story was broken by the Village Voice.
From an atricle I posted a few days ago from FrontPage Magazine:
Over the recent Fourth of July weekend, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) interviewed attendees of the 47th annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention about their experiences in dealing with Islamophobia. Shortly afterwards, on July 6, CAIR called on the FBI to investigate an act of arson at a Georgia mosque, saying that hate crimes were increasing because of a vocal minority in our society promoting anti-Muslim bigotry. The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) referred to it as one of the incidents of Islamophobia [that] are on the rise in this country. However, police later arrested a Muslim suspect.
yes, it does
This should be getting more play.
