A Muslim Helps A Jew

I'm sure CAIR will milk this for all it's worth. After all, a Muslim doing the right thing is a momentous occasion. Definitely newsworthy.

A Brooklyn man whose "Happy Hanukkah" greeting landed him in the hospital said he was saved from a gang of Jew-bashing goons aboard a packed Q train by a total stranger - a modest Muslim from Bangladesh.

Walter Adler was touched that Hassan Askari jumped to his aid while a group of thugs allegedly pummeled and taunted him and his three friends. So Adler has invited his new friend over to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

The two new pals - Adler, 23, with a broken nose and a fat lip, and Askari, 20, with two black eyes - broke bread together and laughed off the bruises the night after the fisticuffs.

"A random Muslim guy jumped in and helped a Jewish guy on Hanukkah - that's a miracle," said Adler, an honors student at Hunter College.

A miracle, indeed. Seriously, this Muslim deserves commendation. If more Muslims would act in the same manner as Askari, Islamophobia wouldn't exist.
