A Blog For All: Q Train Melee

A Blog For All: Q Train Melee:

"Gothamist sums up the situation. The incident began on a Q train where
Jewish revelers were attacked for saying Happy Hannukah in response to a group
saying Merry Christmas. It quickly turned into an assault and cops ended up
arresting 10 people.

It also turns out that a Muslim man came to the
defense of the Jews who were being attacked by the thugs."

This is an old story, but it is worth bringing up. It is the kind of story that people will try and make more of than should be. Truth is that what we learned from this, is that sometimes Jews are attacked, sometimes Christians are violent and sometimes Muslims are honorable. I don't see how this can be extrapolated any larger than that, except to strike down ideas that Muslims can't be honorable and Christians are never violent.
