Small problem. The Muslim cabbie is against construction of the mosque and his attacker appears to support it.
Via the New York Post:
...the alleged attacker, Michael Enright, worked with an organization that very much favors the project.Interesting similarity between this incident and the firebombing of the office of Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-MO), huh? The perpetrator was a Carnahan staffer.
For another, the cabby, Ahmed Sharif, says he's opposed to it -- though Sharif does say that he's worried that debate over the planned project might have played a role in the attack.
