Suspect Charged in CAIR’s Anti-Muslim ‘Hate Crime’ Is Named … Mohamed

The day after Thanksgiving, in the wake of a terrible shooting that left a Muslim cabdriver in Pittsburgh hospitalized, CAIR was screaming ANTI-MUSLIM HATE CRIME! Naturally, left-wing news outlets like the Washington Post and others gleefully accepted those marching orders.  Five days later police had a suspect in the shooting. He’s pictured above. His name is Anthony Mohamed.

Investigators have taken a suspect into custody in the shooting of a cab driver who is Muslim in the city’s Hazelwood neighborhood in the early morning hours of Thanksgiving Day.

Pittsburgh Police announced the arrest at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. They identify the suspect as 26-year-old Anthony Mohamed of Hazelwood.

Five days earlier, and just after the ISIS attacks in Paris, this was the headline:

Police: Muslim Taxi Driver Shot After Being Asked About ISIS

A Muslim civil rights group is asking the Justice Department to investigate the shooting of a Pittsburgh taxi driver.

The driver was shot Thanksgiving night in the Hazelwood section of Pittsburgh, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants the Justice Department to investigate the case as a hate crime.

According to reports, the 38-year-old driver picked up the man outside the Rivers Casino about 1 a.m. Thursday.

F.B.I. statistics prove that Jews are more than three times as likely as Muslims  to be victims of religion-motivated hate crimes. Overall, those among the Faithful who are not Muslim are targeted for hate crimes almost 84% of the time, compared to 16% for Muslims. In a country of around 325 million, there were 183 hate crimes aimed at Muslims last year. Nearly a thousand were aimed at other religious groups.

This frustrated desire by our media to turn American Muslims into victims after every Islamic atrocity is a special carve-out no other Faith enjoys. After the recent attack on a Colorado Planned Parenthood, in fact, this very same media attempted to make every member of the pro-life movement culpable.

In the hopes something will finally stick, CAIR and its media allies are  all-too happy to make serial-fools of themselves hurling whatever they got against a wall.
