Two hate crimes against Muslims were reported within less than 24 hours from each other.
Obviously, this worrying hatred and racism escalated following the campaign initiated by Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller against Islam and Muslims in the United States.
Pamela Geller, who 
wrote earlier:
“This is not a religious issue. This is a national security issue. And an issue of national dignity and respect for those who were murdered at that site in the name of Islam.”
Geller and her companions are directly responsible for the hate crimes and racism which is expected to increase in the upcoming period.
It is not without reason if we fear that these bigotry actions may lead to a civil war in the United States of America; the last thing we need is another fool to stab a Muslim American in neck in the name of patriotism.
“If you had any doubt who Obama stood with on 9/11, there can be no doubt in our minds now.
Right after the 9/11 attacks, Obama blamed America, just like the Islamic supremacist Ground Zero mega-mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf Then-state Sen. Obama said: “We should also examine the foreign policies of the U.S. to make sure that we occupy the moral high ground in these conflicts. In particular, we have to examine some of the root causes of this terrorist activity.” ”
. It’s time to tell the ugly truth about the enemy in the White House and his whores in the media.
Pamela Geller is not only anti- Muslim, she is also opposed to the American administration, illustrating  that it may be a matter of time before an extremist commits a foolish action against the president Obama or one of his supporters who stood behind the rights of Muslims to build their own cultural center near Ground Zero.
Pamela Geller is not alone with her vindictive anti-Islam attitude, on the same page is Robert Spencer responsible for running yet  another campaign against Islam in the United States. Robert Spencer, in collaboration with Pam Geller  in the Stop Islamization of America SIOA campaign, has spent the last few months promoting anti-Islam in America dmonstrating  racism which ultimately led to violence against Muslims.
The violence wasn’t hidden when SIOA co-founder, John Joseph Jay, wrote:
if we are to excise the ruling class, it will be with violence. they used violence to attain their privilege, they use it nakedly to attain their privilege, they use it nakedly in the form of the s.i.e.u. and black panther thugs in elective politics to maintain it, they contemplate relocation camps to preserve it, and they will violently resist and suppress any and all efforts to be removed from their privilege.
buy guns. buy ammo. be jealous of your liberties. and, understand, you are going to have to kill folks, your uncles, your sons and daughters, to preserve those liberties.
American extremists who read, heard and saw these misleading campaigns needed nothing but a Muslim neighbor, cab driver or shop girl to apply violence and attack innocent victims 
Minorities in American are still American! and they must not be targetted. It is about time  the moderate American act against the unacceptable but evident bigotry and racism, since  ‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’

Update, 5:24 p.m. | The man charged with the anti-Muslim slashing and stabbing of a cabdriver was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of second-degree attempted murder as a hate crime, first-degree assault as a hate crime and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
An emergency medical technician said that had the cut been any deeper or longer, the driver would have died, prosecutors said.
Judge ShawnDya L. Simpson ordered the man, Michael Enright, 21, held without bail.
James Zaleta, an assistant district attorney, said in court that Mr. Enright hailed a taxi near 24th Street and Second Avenue on Tuesday evening. Mr. Enright asked the taxi driver, who was from Bangladesh, whether he was Muslim, Mr. Zaleta said.
After the driver said he was, Mr. Enright responded with the Arabic greeting, “Assalamu alaikum,” according to the criminal court complaint.
Then Mr. Enright said, “Consider this a checkpoint,” before pulling out a Leatherman utility knife and slashing the taxi driver’s throat, Mr. Zaleta said. The driver turned and Mr. Enright slashed him in his face and forearms, Mr. Zaleta said.
The driver locked all four doors and drove to 42nd Street, Mr. Zaleta said, but Mr. Enright somehow got out of the car on the way. The driver flagged down a police officer standing on a corner and the officer apprehended Mr. Enright, Mr. Zaleta said.

Mr. Enright sliced the driver’s “neck open halfway across his throat,” Mr. Zaleta said.
The knife was not recovered, but a Leatherman pouch was found in the back seat of the taxi, Mr. Zaleta said.
“This is a highly vicious attack on an innocent person based on his religion,” Mr. Zaleta said.
If convicted of the top charge, Mr. Enright faces up to 25 years in prison.
Jason A. Martin, Mr. Enright’s lawyer, said his client lived with his parents and was an honor student at the School of Visual Arts, where he is a senior.
Mr. Enright is a volunteer with Intersections International, a nonprofit that works to promote cross-cultural understanding and has spoken out in favor of the proposed Islamic cultural center near ground zero. Mr. Enright, who shuffled into court with a collared T-shirt, cargo shorts and shackles around his ankles, has also worked with veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, Mr. Martin said.
“He’s terrified,” Mr. Martin said of his client. “He’s shocked at the allegations. He’s just trying to cope with it right now.”
Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, the chief of a new hate crimes unit created by Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the Manhattan district attorney, was overseeing the investigation into the case.
Mr. Enright’s father, who was in court for the arraignment, declined to comment.

Update, 5:03 p.m. | The man charged with the anti-Muslim slashing and stabbing of a cabdriver Tuesday is a volunteer with a nonprofit organization that works to promote cross-cultural understanding and is working on a film about Marines’ experiences in Afghanistan.
 
 
The man, Michael Enright, 21, volunteers for Intersections International, a group “dedicated to justice, reconciliation and peace across lines of faith, culture, ideology, race, class, national borders and other boundaries that divide humanity.” Mr. Enright works with the group’s “veteran-civilian dialogue program.”
Intersections International released a statement this month supporting the construction of an Islamic cultural center [pdf] a few blocks from ground zero.
Intersections International, run by the Collegiate Churches of New York, said in a statement:
The news that one of our volunteers (if confirmed) was involved in a hate-crime runs counter to everything Intersections stands for.
Our hearts are with the cab driver and everyone in his family. We work aggressively to build bridges of understanding across lines of faith, and cultures especially around the Muslim community. The news that Michael (if confirmed) was involved in this hate crime, runs counter to everything we stand for and is shocking, based on our experience with him as a volunteer.
Any act committed against someone because they are Muslim is deplorable. If confirmed, his actions are no excuse, and inexcusable. We intend to reach out to him and try to help in his healing at the appropriate time.
Mr. Enright, who is also a student at the School of Visual Arts, recently traveled to Afghanistan for his senior thesis film about young American soldiers deployed there.
He told The Journal News in Westchester in a March interview that he wanted to make the movie to show the perspective of young men like a childhood friend of his who was deployed. “I wanted to do him justice,” he said.
In the trailer for the film (also see video below), a Marine tells Mr. Enright about how Sept. 11 made him want to enlist.
“I was in eighth grade social studies class,” the soldier says. “I remember seeing it. So I joined the Marine Corps to literally get rid of the bad people in the world.”

Updated, 1:56 p.m. | A cabdriver was attacked Tuesday by a knife-wielding passenger who had asked him about his Muslim practices, the police said.
 
 
The passenger, Michael Enright, 21, of Brewster, N.Y., hailed the cab at Second Avenue and East 24th Street around 6 p.m. Tuesday, the police said. Twenty blocks north, they said, he slashed and stabbed the 43-year-old driver in his throat, face and arm.
The driver — identified by the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, a drivers’ group, as Ahmed H. Sharif, 43, a Bangladeshi immigrant — stopped the cab and approached a police officer on Third Avenue near 42nd Street. Mr. Enright was arrested at the scene.
According to the taxi workers’ alliance, Mr. Sharif’s fare started the ride asking him in a friendly way if he was Muslim, whether he was observing Ramadan, and how long he had been in the United States.
After falling silent for a few minutes, the passenger began cursing and screaming, and then yelled, “Assalamu alaikum — consider this a checkpoint!” and slashed Mr. Sharif across the neck, and then on the face from his nose to his upper lip, the alliance said. (“Assalamu alaikum” — “peace be with you” — is a traditional Muslim greeting.)
Both men were taken to Bellevue Hospital Center. The driver was in stable condition. A law enforcement official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said Mr. Enright was “very drunk” at the time of the attack.
“I feel very sad,” Mr. Sharif said in 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 my four kids were born here. I never feel this hopeless and insecure before.”
He added that “right now, the public sentiment is very serious” because of tensions over Park51, the proposed Islamic center that some critics call the “ground zero mosque.”
The police charged Mr. Enright with attempted murder as a hate crime, assault, aggravated harassment and criminal possession of a weapon. He was awaiting arraignment on Wednesday.

A second incident revealing anti-Islamic tendencies reports on vandalism at the Madera Islamic center:
Vandalism at Madera Islamic center called hate crime
Posted at 02:20 PM on Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2010
By Eddie Jimenez / The Fresno Bee
Vandalism to a Madera Islamic center and signs found on the property are being investigated as a hate crime, the Madera County Sheriff’s Department said today.
A brick was thrown at the building Friday and three signs were found at Masjid Madera, 16634 Road 26, during two other incidences since Aug. 18, said Erica Stuart, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman. Two of the signs were found on the center’s property Tuesday afternoon.
The signs read “No Temple for the God of terrorism at Ground Zero. ANB,” “Wake up America, the Enemy is here. ANB” and “American Nationalist Brotherhood.”
Earlier reports said the brick went through a window. The sheriff’s department said later today that it struck a wall.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at (559) 675-7770 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.

Allegation vs Evidence Michael Moon
Nice smear on Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller. As if! Judging from the media's description of the perp, he would probably gouge out his own eyes before reading Atlas Shrugs or Jihad Watch. But then, the fact that the organization he is working for defends the GZ mosque just doesn't fit your narrative, does it?
