Sudden Jihad Syndrome in San Diego

San Diego: “Devoutly Muslim” cab driver plows into crowd outside nightclub, injuring 23

The details are murky and disputed, but here are the basic facts: “Taxi Plows Into Crowd in San Diego,” from, February 12:

SAN DIEGO — A taxi cab driver plowed slowly into a crowd on a sidewalk in San Diego’s busy Gaslamp District early Saturday, injuring more than two dozen people, police said.The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the crash occurred about 2 a.m. in the middle of the popular restaurant and nightclub zone, close to the city’s convention center….

The driver’s name was not released right away (why not?); he turned out to be Sam Hassan Daly, a 52-year-old Muslim.

There have been several other suspicious incidents involving Muslim drivers over the last few years. Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar explicitly grounded his hit-and-run in the teachings of the Koran. Munir Muthana told the police who arrested him that “the Muslims will fix this country.” Omeed Aziz Popal, we were told, was suffering from stress from an arranged marriage. Ismail Yassin Mohamed, we were informed, was mentally ill, suffered from depression, and hadn’t being taking his medication. And Muhammad Teshale, according to “law enforcement officials,” “did it to be famous.”

Coincidence or jihad? Certainly there are a lot of hit-and-run and incidents involving people hit by cars that have nothing to do with Muslims, but in the cases listed here there is a degree of intentionality in these that we do not usually see.

And in this present case, Sam Hassan Daly is described as “devoutly Muslim,” and we’re told that he told police that he blacked out shortly before he drove his cab into the crowd, and that he may have fallen asleep at the wheel. Authorities don’t think that he did it intentionally.

And yet “some victims don’t believe it was an accident,” and bystanders were so enraged when it first happened that they dragged Daly out of his cab and started kicking and punching him — not behavior one usually sees after an accident. Daly, for his part, came out of the cab clutching a pair of scissors, and apparently tried to attack the club manager with them — again, not behavior one usually associates with someone who has just caused a terrible accident and is contrite and horrified.

So has Sam Hassan Daly just committed an act of jihad against the immoral kuffar revelers at the nightclub? We may never know from mainstream media reports, although more clues may emerge in the coming days. In any case, there are some indications already that that may have been what happened, and certainly numerous precedents.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome: Muslim Cab Driver Plows Down Crowded Sidewalk in San Diego

Pamela Geller

Last Saturday, a Muslim taxi driver slowly plowed into a crowd of people on a busy sidewalk in San Diego. It sounded almost immediately like lone jihadi syndrome. And they would not release his name, which always makes me suspicious. They only do that when it’s Islamic.

Lone jihadi or sudden jihad. We see this repeatedly.

One girl was pinned against a wall and had her leg severed. 35 people were injured and most were transported to hospitals. They had injuries such as broken bones, cuts and bruises, So incensed was the crowd that members of the crowd pulled him out of the cab and assaulted him. UPDATE: After the attack he jumped out of the taxi and started stabbing people with a pair of scissors.

I did not post on it because the authorities refused to publish his name. It took a few days, but now we know that he was a 52-year-old Egyptian-born cab driver, Hasan Daly.

The original FOX article (below) said “the driver, who is between 40 and 50 years old, either fell asleep or passed out. Alcohol was not involved.” But he didn’t fall alseep. Police confirmed Daly stopped at the stop sign on the corner before driving about 15 miles per hour into the crowd.

Wait, get this:

When emergency crews first arrived, they were told to clear the area because of fears that the taxi might have had explosives inside it. A witness reported seeing a bag with wires coming out of it on the taxi’s seats. The bag turned out to be a massager, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

People thought it was a a terror attack. And this would-be slaughterer was not arrested and no charges have been filed.

Sammy Nour, who hired Daly years ago as a company limousine driver, said Daly is a hard worker but a very private person.”I was shocked,” said Nour. Indeed.
