Hugs, Love and Tolerance from the 'Religion of Peace': The Cabbie from Hell

The latest tender sentiment from that oh-so-peaceful religion comes from Yousef al-Khattab, a New York City cab driver who was born Joseph Cohen. Converting to Islam after attending an Orthodox Jewish school (which, ironically, he says was 'a racist cult'), al-Khattab now spreads his own version of joy and nicety through his website, which has as its mission:

"preserving Islamic culture,” “calling people to the oneness of God” and asking them to “support the beloved Sheik Abdullah Faisal, who’s preaching the religion of Islam and serving as a spiritual guide.” sweet. That is, unless you know that Sheik Faisal was convicted in the UK of spreading hatred and urging the murder of Westerners, Jews, and Hindus, using such 'peaceful' tools as chemical weapons. Another of his ideas for bringing love and light involves using machetes to cut the throats of non-Muslims. What a peach, eh?

Al-Khattab's special brand of internet sunshine has a number of touchy-feely features, sure to impress neighbors in his hometown of Queens:

- a video mocking the brutal murder of journalist Daniel Pearl (but don't worry, folks; al-Khattab says that Muslims don't grab people off the street - Pearl was tried and convicted of being a spy, so what happened to him is just ducky)

- video of a puppet show that mocks the deaths of U.S. troops in Iraq (not to be confused with the kid-stabs-GWB puppet show)

- solicitations for Faisal and to get him new computer equipment so he can continue to spread his own special brand of love and joy (now who can resist that?).

Sad news for those of you looking to get a little electronic hug from the 'Religion of Peace,' though - Yousef's site appears to be down today (unfortunately, that's probably due to high traffic).

The biggest pill to swallow is al-Khattab's prominent statement that his website is protected under the First Amendment. He gets around terrorism charges by not directly advocating the murder of Americans. He doesn't tell you to murder Americans, you see - he just tells you to listen to other people who want you to kill Americans. His parents must be so proud.

The rest of the site makes him a scumbag terrorist, legal two-step or no. That little gem, in my book, makes him a bottomfeeding coward. If you hate America, let's just get that out in the open. Al Khattab's the worst kind of extremist loser. Hate America for all she stands for - except the things that save your sorry @$$ from being thrown in jail.

One more reason to avoid using a taxi in New York City.
