Bx. idiots beat up ‘Arab’ in revenge
A Bangladeshi man out for dinner at a Bronx restaurant was viciously beaten hours after the Boston Marathon bombing by thugs who called him “a f–king Arab” before pummeling him to the ground, sources said.
Abdullah Faruque, 30 — a native of the South Asian country who grew up in The Bronx — was at Applebee’s on Exterior Avenue in Melrose at about 11:30 p.m. Monday when he went outside for a smoke.
Three or four Hispanic males he’d noticed drinking at the bar followed him and angrily got in his face, he recalled yesterday.
He turned to head back inside as one of the men snarled, “Yeah, he’s a f–king Arab,” and the gang pounced, punching him on the head and body, dislocating his left shoulder and leaving him semiconscious.
A group of Hispanics (in New York’s case, most likely mulatto-Caribbeans), in their zeal to whack an Muslim in revenge for a crime for which there is no suspect yet, end up whacking a South Asian who may not be Muslim because they think he’s Arab, and of course not all Arabs are Muslim. And it’s pot-kettle-black as far as that goes, because mulatto-Caribbean Hispanics are the second most criminally inclined racial/ethnic group in New York City, behind only the you-know-whos, Bellcurvius.
Then there’s the matter of that even if he was Arab and Muslim, he didn’t do the Boston Massacre.
You know, I vaguely recall The Bronx being part of America at one time. Now it’s full of that diversity which is supposed to be a strength.
