New York, Oct.14 (ANI): A New York bicycle cabbie has used his web site to post a prayer that calls on God to murder all Jews and exhorts Muslims to "throw liquid drain cleaner in their faces."
Yousef al-Khattab, who runs RevolutionMuslim.com and pedals a pedicab in New York City, insists the words he has posted on his web site are a prayer, and not a threat - and that his hatred is protected by the First Amendment, reports Fox News.
"If it was a threat, I'd be in jail," the 41-year-old al-Khattab told Foxnews.com from his home in Queens.
"I'm asking my God, that's what it is. Every supporter of Israel is an enemy combatant and the immune system is not anti-Semitic for resisting disease," he added.
Al-Khattab removed the Oct. 7 post a "few days ago" and replaced it with a post about a mosque in Jerusalem.
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News' senior legal analyst, said the posting is "absolutely protected" by the First Amendment.
"All innocuous speech is absolutely protected and all speech is innocuous when there is time for more speech to rebut or address it," he told Fox News. (ANI)
