Jeanne Ruby: Retired English Teacher Fined for Attack on Niqabi

France has chose over the past year or so to focus extensively on the face-veil and Islam related issues under the cover of integrating the “Muslim immigrant” population.

However such moves have led to an increasing stigmatization of the the Muslim minority and invariably to a wider chasm in society in which bigotry is openly professed and accepted. One such case is the attack on a tourist from the Emirates who was wearing a Niqab in a clothing store by a French retiree named Jeanne Ruby.

AlJazeera Report:

She was eventually given a suspended sentence and charged 1,000 Euros. Essentially a slap on the hand.

Fire Vet Assaults Muslim Worshipper

Of course Islamophobia doesn’t exist? I wonder if the former FDNY lieutenant reads Pamela Geller?

Retired FDNY Lieutenant in anti-Islam Hate Fit

A retired FDNY lieutenant was arrested for calling a Muslim Queens man a “terrorist” and spitting on him as they argued on an Astoria street last summer, said a spokeswoman for DA Richard Brown.

Former firefighter Gerald Duffy allegedly blew his stack after he rolled through a stop sign at 25th Avenue and 41st Street the afternoon of Aug. 7 and nearly ran into Toufik Sadouki, who was walking to afternoon prayer, cops said.

“What’s your problem? Don’t you stop at the stop sign?” Sadouki shouted at Duffy, who then allegedly unleashed a litany of bigoted slurs at the man.

“I don’t have to stop for you, you f- – -ing terrorist,” Duffy told the cabdriver, who was wearing religious garbed, according to court papers.

“You’re Taliban,” he snarled at the bearded man who emigrated from Algeria 20 years ago.

Duffy, 46, then allegedly got out of his car, spit on Sadouki and pushed him.

Sadouki told The Post that he spit back at Duffy in retaliation, but did not tussle with Duffy.

“I was trying to avoid the fight because I was on my way to pray. It’s against our religion to fight with people,” he said. Two pals came to his aide and Duffy got back into his car, said Sadouki, 38.

But the hotheaded Duffy re-emerged from his car and grabbed Sadouki’s kufi, a traditional hat.

“Don’t put that on the ground. It’s a religious matter. If you do, there will be trouble,” Sadouki told the ex-firefighter.

Duffy then put the hat on a parked car and fled, Sadouki said.

Witnesses wrote down Duffy’s plate number, and detectives were finally able to track down the Long Island resident. Sadouki picked him out of a line-up Friday.

Duffy was arraigned that night on charges of aggravated harassment.

A woman who answered the door at Duffy’s home said he couldn’t come to the door.

Sadouki said: “Honestly, I want to go back home. I am a guest in this country, so I play by your rules. He’s a maniac.”
