Yesterday, a Muslim cab driver was brutally attacked and stabbed in New York City — apparently just because he’s a Muslim.

As Michelle Malkin noted, the left-wing media couldn’t wait to indict the “anti-mosque” right. And you know what? Forget about all the facts not being in about the attacker. Let’s take the claim at face value — because it helps to provide one of those “teachable moments” people seem to like so much these days.

The left’s argument — and Mayor Bloomberg harps on this every day — is that we shouldn’t blame all Muslims for 9/11. “Blaming all Muslims for the actions of only 19 people is unfair and un-American” goes the argument.

So how do many on the left prove their “don’t blame an entire group for the actions of a few” point when they get the chance? By blaming everybody who is opposed to the construction of the GZ mosque for the stabbing of this Muslim cab driver. These beacons of tolerance probably fail to see the irony.

Bloomberg’s meeting with the cab driver today, so maybe he’ll use this point as a “teachable moment,” but I’m not holding my breath.

    and in the end, he was actually stabbed by a leftist. which makes this moment even more teachable.

    It would be great to be able to agree with all of your post, but I can`t object only to the sharia part. We`ve been warned that the koran/ qu`ran says: it`s fine to lie to us infidels to accomplish their mission; that as an infidel, I must be converted, subjugated or put to death…. Some claim that Yahweh and Allah are the same God…. I have serious doubts !!!! ……a Turk recently said, "There is no radical/moderate/extremist islam–islam is islam" ! Hmmmm !!??
    Sorry, too much not yet understood, too much room for doubt !!! Even though my Sister has a dear muslim friend , I am not ready to trust …..not all terrorists are muslim, but I can only remember muslim terrorrists !!! McVeigh excepted…
