Another battle in the War on Christmas

It’s not looking good for Christmas. Soon Christmas might be just a memory, and Christians will be persecuted even more than they already are! Now the Muslims and Jews are teaming up:

A Muslim man jumped to the aid of three Jewish subway riders after they were attacked by a group of young people who objected to one of the Jews saying “Happy Hanukkah,” a spokeswoman for the three said Wednesday.

Fridays altercation on the Q train began when somebody yelled out “Merry Christmas,” to which rider Walter Adler responded, “Happy Hanukkah,” said Toba Hellerstein.

“Almost immediately, you see the look in this guys face like Ive called his mother something,” Adler told CNN affiliate WABC.

Two women who were with a group of 10 rowdy people then began to verbally assault Adlers companions with anti-Semitic language, Hellerstein said.

One member of the group allegedly yelled, “Oh, Hanukkah. Thats the day that the Jews killed Jesus,” she said.

When Adler tried to intercede, a male member of the group punched him, she said.

Another passenger, Hassan Askari — a Muslim student from Bangladesh — came to Adlers aid, and the group began physically and verbally assaulting him, Hellerstein said.

“A Muslim-American saved us when our own people were on the train and didnt do anything,” Adler said.

Adler pulled the emergency brake and the train stopped at DeKalb Avenue station, where police came on board.

The 10 suspects, ages 19 to 20, were taken into custody, said Brooklyn district attorney spokesman Sandy Silverstein.

  1. hey, we’re not all bad. But this story saddens me deeply. If people think this is what Christmas really is all about, we have a looooong way to go. Jesus was a Jew, people! ACK pirhtuhretdfha;dnm frustration.

  2. i hope my post wasn’t taken as an attack on Christians. mostly i was just making fun of people who get paranoid and think that there’s really a “war on christmas” out there. if you were responding to jtaxx, i agree, it was a bit harsh.
