He showed that horrible American that you can't mess with Islam! What that man did was culturally insensitive!

Yeah.... Attacking a person for dressing like this, and justifying it through religion is just sad. Are Muslims really that close minded and overly sensitive that they can't accept the fact there is more than just Islam in the world?

I don't think any of the Islamic apologists will even touch that video.

Idiotic judges are all over the place. This one just happens to be a Muslim siding with another Muslim.
The appeal will right this miscarriage of justice.

OP: You're an idiot
This has nothing to do with him being a Muslim.
This has everything to do with NO EVIDENCE.
Some grainy cell phone video where you can't ID anyone isn't sufficient evidence to convict someone accused of harassment.
It's funny that this gets lost in the flood of posts calling for the judge to be fired, etc. Not really as funny as it is sad. DENY IGNORANCE! People, please check sources, and then find new ones, and compare - it's critical thinking. Do it.
Only if they apply it according to there religious beliefs like this judge did................but then again I think you know that.

This is just disgusting. It also claims that this judge is a muslim convert. looks like creeping sharia law and clear conflict of interest.
What about judges who are Christians or other religions? Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest too?
And yet the defendent was charged with harassment. You failed to answer earlier, but who decides what charges a suspect will face?
When the suspect approached the victim and made physical contact, its assault - Any unwanted physical contact.
While I think the Muslim gentleman needs to realize he is no longer living in a country where that kind of behavior is acceptible, I think everyone needs to grow a sense of humor.
If a Muslim never insults Jesus, Moses, David or Solomon; then why does the followers of Jesus/Moses/David/Solomon insult Prophet Mohammad (or even his followes)?
Christians and Jews from all around the world have always been unsympathetic with Muslims, isn't this also a fact?
