BS"D

A friend of mine told me this story a few years ago, and this seem like as good an occasion as any to relate it. I was rather shocked to hear it, but it fits the "M.O." of Muslims who suddenly reveal a side of themselves you would never have suspected by their previous behavior.

He said that he and a Muslim "friend" he had known for years were walking and talking. Everything was tranquil and normal. As they walked, they came to a bridge, and as they crossed the bridge, my friend (who is also Jewish) said the Muslim suddenly lunged at him and attempted to push him off the bridge. Needless to say, that put an end to what he thought had been a "cordial" relationship.

Thank G-d the Muslim didn't have a weapon!
