Muslim Woman Made Up Hate Crime on Subway, Police Say

An 18-year-old Muslim woman who claimed that three men attacked her on a Manhattan subway this month and tried to pull off her hijab was charged on Wednesday with filing a false report, the police said.

The woman, Yasmin Seweid, a student at Baruch College, was also charged with obstructing governmental administration, the police said. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Ms. Seweid, of New Hyde Park on Long Island, had told the police that three white men screaming “Donald Trump!” attacked her on Dec. 1 on an uptown No. 6 train at East 23rd Street, DNAinfo.com reported.

She told the police that the men had called her a terrorist and that when she tried to move to the other end of the subway car, one of them followed and tried to pull off her traditional head scarf.

DNAinfo reported that she recanted the story on Tuesday and had made it up to get attention because of problems she was having with her family.

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day. — December 5, 2015

Gun ownership is both a basic American right and one of the most contentious social and political issues of the day.

johnlennonLet me tell you a  fairy tale about a Pakistani girl who emigrated to Saudi Arabia with her father.  Years later she finds her Prince Charming, an American, marries him.  She gives birth to a child in the United States of America.  Let’s assume the Prince is the father and let’s not ask Maury Povich to do a paternity test on his show.  Couple lives happily ever after. The end.  No.  Not quite like that.  Six months later the baby is an orphan.  The couple, leave their six-month-old baby daughter with relatives, two hours later the couple is killed in a shootout with police SWAT team members.

End the Gun Epidemic in America

It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.

I’m in favor of not restricting responsible people from owning guns.  I have yet to see a gun kill anyone.  There is always a human behind the weapon who does the killing.  The gun is an instrument that needs to be issued with caution to people.  I believe we need a National Identity card where all information about an individual is available to the authorities who will decide if an individual is a candidate for gun ownership.  There should be a waiting period where the individual should attend mandatory safety classes.  If the individual fails to pass these classes  he loses the right to ownership and must forfeit all fees paid.
