Can't tolerate intolerance

[LINK to article]

Wow! I just ran across this story (although it's a couple of weeks old). Some Jews were attacked on a NY subway for responding to "Merry Christmas" with "Happy Hanukkah". After verbal assaults by the Christians turned physical, a Muslim on the subway stepped in to defend the Happy Hanukkah well-wisher and his companions from the 10 abusive Christians.

Thanks for making this country a little more intolerant FOX.

"Askari was first handcuffed alongside them..."

That is perhaps the saddest part of the story - it was automatically assumed that he was among the attackers.

As for
"Oh, Hanukkah. That's the day that the Jews killed Jesus", well, time to go back to school and refresh their History 101...

MVM: FOX is to blame for this stupid "war" over the word "christmas".
nava: I don't think they care about History. That's why they are becoming a negative part of it.

COEXIST must be the theme for the week! When i saw the graphic in the video I HAD to snag it for my blog!

I've seen 2 versions of the "Coexist", one is Islam, Peace, E, Judaism, I, S, Christianity.

This one is Islam, Wicca, Relativity, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism and Christianity.
