NYC: ISIS-loving devout Muslim cab driver makes BOMB THREAT, KEEPS HIS LICENSE

Everywhere Muslims are kowtowed too, appeased, accommodated. Hisham Ahmed should not be driving a cab in New York City. He shouldn’t even be in the country. He should be deported, before he carries out his own jihad mass murder attack.

Hisham-I.-Ahmed

“ISIS-loving cabbie shouldn’t lose license for bomb threat, judge says,” by Nolan Hicks, New York Post, March 22, 2016:

A taxi driver accused of telling a passenger he had a bomb in his car, was thinking of joining ISIS and could have “done a better job” than the Paris terrorists, should be suspended for six months and fined $1,150, an administrative law judge has recommended.

Judge Kevin Casey refused to yank the license of cabbie Hisham Ahmed, as the Taxi & Limousine Commission had requested, after police said he posed “no threat” and after determining his volatile remarks were “out of character” in a 20-year career.

Casey said Ahmed deserved a lesser punishment for scaring the daylights out of his passenger, an Australian businessman.

“The complaintant credibly testified that [Ahmed] repeatedly stated that he wanted to blow up the taxi cab,” the judge wrote in a March 16 decision.

“Those remarks were made late at night in the close confines of a taxi, less than two weeks after a horrific attack by terrorists in Paris.”

“[Ahmed] had already alluded to the Paris Attack and his desire to join ISIS,” he added. “Though the police later concluded that [Ahmed] did not pose a threat to the public, that finding did not diminish the distress endured by the complainant as he rode in the cab.”

Ahmed’s lawyer called the recommended penalty excessive.

“The police investigated Mr. Ahmed and found him to be no threat whatsoever,” said attorney Daniel Ackman.

He disputed the judge’s finding that Ahmed had made the remarks and said that even if he had, “the punishment for speaking is excessive.”

The allegedly terror-fueled cab ride began shortly before midnight, in late November, when the businessman hopped in Ahmed’s cab near Third Avenue and East 21st St.

Just two minutes into his ride to his midtown hotel, the businessman testified that Ahmed asked him about the Paris terror attacks.

The passenger recounted that he told Ahmed the attacks were “unfortunate or very upsetting.”

The cabbie responded, he said, by boasting he “could’ve done a better job.”

It was the first in a string of disturbing remarks Ahmed allegedly made during the short ride, including asking his fare how to get an “ISIS visa” and wondering repeatedly if he should “blow the taxi up tonight.”

The ride was a “terrifying” and “terrible” experience, the businessman told the judge, adding the incident “ruined the night” and turned what had been a great trip to New York into a “an absolute disappointment.”

The businessman, who was not identified, called the police and TLC shortly after arriving at his hotel on Lexington Avenue at 37th Street.

Ahmed, who has been a cab driver for two decades, testified that he had no recollection of the businessman or of the alleged incident, and had never told a passenger he wanted to join ISIS or
blow up his taxi….

    Before getting into the cab, look at the drivers license which should be visible on the passenger side dashboard.

    If it’s a Muslim name, then JUST SAY NO because if you take the cab, you are feeding terrorism.

    Take the bus, subway, walk, Don’t feed terrorism.

      You wont get a cab. 90% muzrats

        If you have no alternative except to take the taxi driven by a Muslim, check that the picture matches the driver.
        If they do not match, report it to the authorities as many taxi drivers allow their cousins, and possibly illegal immigrants to drive their cabs.
        I refuse to take a cab with any Muslim and when phoning for one, specifically ask that they not be of Islamic faith, this applies to kebabs

          Whats amazing is all the halal stands all over the city, which tout themselves as better and cleaner “regular” meat. This is hilarious, and the dummies all drinkin the kool aid. Funny part is no running water to wash with, if they ever use it anyway. The news once did a clip on these stands, which shows a lot of them are stored in filthy rat infested warehouses

    NO THREAT? The taxi jihadi said he could have done a better job in Brussels isn’t a threat?

    Some kid drawing a picture of a gun is a threat, but saying you’d do a “better job” in Brussels is not? WTF!!!

      THE POS SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY DEPORTED BACK TO THE HELL HOLE HE CAME FROM .

  • Solipsis

    No cabs in NYC for me.

  • HAD HE LOST HIS HACK LICENSE

    this radical Moslem would still have had a license to kill infidels from the Koran.

    More bigotry towards everyone else, a non muslims mentions they don’t like islam, it is a hate crime. A muslim threatens mass murder it is quite acceptable. Deportation should have been the minimum sentence.

  • Honkingeese Watchgoose lll

    and if a white taxi driver had said to a muslim that he could do a better job than the crane that fell on mecca? Driving again in 6 months do you think?

    What do you expect in commie libtard land? Guiliani, and bloomberg handed diblasio, a beautiful, clean city, with low crime. And he destroyed it. All this libtard had to do was keep it on auto pilot. The hard work was done. Now its like a trip back to the 80s. Bratton, who was once a great commissioner, sold his soul to the libs. Got no respect for this clown

    • Patricia

      The majority of the NYC police have Bratton’s number! They may turn a blind eye one day, if he’s not careful.

    How many instances have you read about where someone with a history of supposed stability suddenly snapped? No one thought two humble high school losers were capable of pulling off the Columbine massacre even though their home computers were full of related topics.

    He should at least be required to inform passengers about possibly harmful ingredients in the cab, you know, in plain writing about vehicle contents on the sides. And at least have a size restriction for any bomb lest it be harmful to health.

  • Shiite from Shinola

    Meanwhile, a cab driver loses his job because he tells a Bernie Sanders worshiper that moslems are pieces of, uhh, “excrement”.

    Which is the greater danger here? I think the guy with the “excrement” comment was being rather kind and honest in regards to the stinking goattfuuckkker jihadis.

    Yeah that’s a tough one. The man should’ve hit the record button on his phone.
