Muslim Uber driver allegedly slammed passenger’s service dog to pavement, injuring it

By Thomas Lifson 

I find it very difficult to celebrate the diversity that Muslims bring to the United States on the matter of dogs. Muslims are taught to hate them. Not in the Koran, but in the Hadith and other sources, as I wrote about here:
From Bukhari Vol. 4, #540
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed.
From Abu Dawud #2839
Abd Allah B. Mughaffal reported the apostle of Allah as saying: Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one.
The Hadith's note for #2839 says, "The prophet did not order the killing of all the dogs, for some are to be retained for hunting and watching. He ordered to kill the jet black ones. They might be more mischievous among them.
From Muslim #3814
Ibn Mughaffal reported: Allah's messenger ordered the killing of dogs and then said, "what is the trouble with them (the people of Medina? How dogs are nuisances to them (the citizens of Medina)? He then permitted keeping of dogs for hunting and (the protection of) herds. ...[and for] for the protection of cultivated land.
From Muslim #Number 055
Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.
From Muslim #3813
Abu Zubair heard Jabir Abdullah saying: Allah's messenger ordered us to kill dogs and we carried out this order so much so that we also killed the dog roaming with a women from the desert. Then Allah's apostle forbade their killing. He said: "It is your duty to kill the jet-black (dog) having two spots (on the eyes) for it is a devil.
You see, Mohammed was a thief, a caravan raider (but it was okay because they were infidels), and dogs guard against thieves in the night.  As a result, man’s best friend is anathema to many Muslims, and this can result in problems when they apply this belief in roles involving contact with the public, especially as drivers of passenger carrying vehicles.  Carol Brown collected a series of such incidents hereherehereherehereherehere, and here
The latest such alleged incident has a particularly nasty turn. Via Pamela Geller and iOTW Report, we learn from Maya Rajanami of DNA Info:

An Uber driver viciously slammed a passenger’s service dog onto the ground after telling her she couldn’t have the pooch in his car — leaving the animal with a dislocated hip and an injured knee that required surgery, police said.
The 30-year-old Manhattan resident had gotten into the cab with her Silky Terrier in front of 1755 Broadway, near West 56th Street, on Jan. 21 around 7:30 p.m., the NYPD said.
When driver Muhammad Qayyum, 23, saw the pup, he told her, “I will not take your dog in my car,” police said.
After Qayyum, from Queens, refused to drive the woman and her pooch, he got out of the car, went to the right back passenger seat and grabbed the dog’s leash from the woman’s hand, the NYPD said.
Qayyum used the leash to yank the dog out of her lap and threw the animal to the ground, according to a complaint filed with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
Qayyaum has denied all the charges.  Oh, and (surprise!) he is charging racism:
The driver claimed that after the woman refused to show documents proving the terrier was a service animal, she made “racist, religiously disparaging slurs” and punched him in the face several times, the spokeswoman explained.
Uber requires drivers to carry service animals. It is also investigating the incident.
For some reason, in the wake of 9-11, the United States has been importing Muslims at an unprecedented rate. There are those who celebrate the diversity they bring. But I doubt that many dogs do.
