Muslim Helps Jews Riding On NY Subway

A Brave Young Muslim Helps Jews On A NY Subway

 

On December 9, 2007, Hassan Askari who is a Muslim was riding the Q train into Brooklyn when he saw about ten male thugs and their girlfriends start beating three people who had replied ‘Happy Hanukkah’ when they were greeted with ‘Merry Christmas’.

The subway car was filled, but everyone other than Hassan looked the other way!

But fearing for the the threesome’s safety, Askari intervened and pushed one hoodlum away.

What followed, was that the gang attacked the 5′ 7”, 140 lb. Askari, whilst dozens of others in the car pretended not to notice.

One of the three victims pulled the the subway’s emergency brake, which in turn quickly brought help.

Askari Was Arrested

The police sealed off car and entered it, and Askari was soon hand-cuffed, but very quickly released.

Askari received two black eyes and a sore nose for his efforts, but he never went to a doctor, because even though he worked two jobs he couldn’t afford medical care.

The Video

“I have friends who are Jews, Christians and Buddhists, and I would have acted in the same way if they were victims of an unprovoked attack”.

Askari said.

One of the victims, Walter Adler, who received a broken nose and required four stitches for a split lip, said that he was amazed that,

“A random Muslim kid helped some Jewish kids, and that’s what’s positive about New York”.

Askari was later awarded the Liberty Medal in the Courage category.

* The Liberty Medal is awarded annually by the National Constitution Center to men and women of courage and conviction who have strived to secure the blessings of liberty to people the world over.

Mengele’s Auschwitz Experiments On Kor Twins And Forgiveness

Eva Mozes Kor and her twin sister Miriam Were Taken To Auschwitz

They grew up in a small village in Romania in the 1940s and theirs was the only Jewish family in the region.

Eva Mozes Kor (born January 31, 1934) was a survivor of the Holocaust who, with her twin sister Miriam, was subjected to human experimentation under Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. 

A Story of Forgiveness

Eva Mozes Kor and sister never expected to go to Auschwitz!

“My father said as long as you say your prayers, did the good deeds that God wanted you to do, and lived so far away from the big city, that somehow we’d escape".

Eva said.

“The Nazis won’t come here for six Jews".

Her father said.

But they did come, and at the age of 10, Eva was loaded on to a crowded cattle car with her family and relocated to Auschwitz.

A Celebrity Chef Donates More Food To Kids Than He Sells

Chef Now Donates More Food Than He Sells

Chef Bruno Serato Donates More Food Than He Sells

Bruno Serato, who is the owner of the upscale White House Restaurant in Anaheim, admits he had a pretty easy and carefree life, hosting and hobnobbing with Orange County’s most rich and famous.

But that was until his mother Caterina came over to visit from Italy!

Bruno’s Mother Layed Down The Law! And Now He Happily Donates!

At the time, Bruno was on the board of the local Boys and Girls Club and he just thought his mom might like to see the place.

The club serves a lot of homeless kids who often went hungry, and when Bruno told his mom this, she exploded!

"I heard her in Italian grab his arm and say some things and he just started raising his arms and he said, ‘Mama, mama, OK, OK, OK!’".

The clubs director Mike Baker recalls.

So what did she say to her son?

"Why don’t you feed them pasta?".

And obeying his mother’s orders, Bruno fed all of the kids that night.

And Bruno Is So Happy That He Now Donates

Bruno said it was a lot of food to just give away, but his mother wouldn’t leave the kitchen until he did it.

That was in April 18, 2005, and it’s happened every day since then!

And it might be interesting to consider, that some of the poorest children in Anaheim get food on a daily basis, from one of the most exclusive restaurants in Anaheim.

But it has not gone unappreciated and the kids love the food.

The Kids Are Now Bruno’s Favorite Diners

Bruno was asked,

"Did your mother give you a gift by making you do this?".

And he replied.

"Oh yeah, the biggest gift of my life!".

Bruno says the kids are now by far his favorite diners.

He says he’s never felt more needed.

In the last few years, with the economy tanking, the number of meals he serves has doubled from about 75 a night to 150.

He Donates More Than He Sells

Meanwhile, back at his restaurant, that same economy had the opposite effect.

Bruno said he was giving away more meals than he sold, which turned his balance sheet the color of marinara, and he had to refinance his restaurant and his house.

So why can he keep feeding these kids?

"How could I stop?".

he says.

If you live in Southern California, then you might want to consider going out for Italian some night soon.

At Bruno’s place!
