The Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) says a man attacked a Muslim woman and assaulted her with racial slurs in Tampa.Sabura Rashad, who wears and Islamic head scarf, claims the unprovoked attack happened Saturday while she was working at her yard sale at the Lamplighter on the River mobile home park.She says one of her neighbors, Tom Poyma, drove up and told her to go back to her country. She says he called her names, cursed at her, and tried to run her over.The mother of three says she felt scared for her and her baby."It was terrifying," said Rashad, 33. "It was humiliating. I responded that I was born in this county. I was born in Detroit, Michigan."However, neighbor David Calvert says it wasn't a hate crime."It's just an argument that blew up out of proportion," said Calvert. "If you're [going to] say every argument between different races is a hate crime, that's just ridiculous."So far, authorities haven't filed any charges in connection with the incident, but Bay News 9's newspaper partner, the St. Petersburg Times, says the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office will hand the case over to the state attorney's office for further investigation. CAIR is calling for hate crime charges to be filed.
I'll just come right out with it: I don't believe this woman or CAIR. I think CAIR pulls this crap to regain victim status after their terrorist pals do something naughty. Maybe if CAIR could explain why they are an unindicted co-conspirator in this terrorist funding case, or explain why, when their membership fell 90% in the past five years to less than 1700 dues-paying members @ $25 per year, they have a budget of $3 million. Where's the sugar daddies? Oman? Saudi Arabia?
The local media here kisses CAIR's tush. The above questions will never be asked of them.
