SAN DIEGO: Cab driver who plowed into crowd, injuring 36, is an Egyptian 'Devout' Muslim

Police have ruled out alcohol as a cause and now wonder if it was stress, overwork, or lack of sleep, totally ignoring the obvious that the man is a MUSLIM, with a propensity for ‘sudden jihad syndrome.’

It took several day for the name of the driver to be revealed – Sam (Osama) Hassan Daly, a 52-year-old Muslim.

DALY, pictured above, was the man behind the wheel of the Emerald cab that jumped a curb in the Gaslamp Saturday morning and ran into a crowd exiting Stingaree, according to San Diego police.

Daly is an Egyptian immigrant who worked as a doctor in his native country before taking a job driving a cab in San Diego.(Remember the Muslim ‘doctor’ in Glasgow Scotland how drove his car filled with explosives through the airport arrivals building?) Court documents indicate Daly has lived in San Diego for at least seven years and that his given name is “Ossama Hassan El-Darandaly.” He changed his name to Sam Hassan Daly sometime since 2005.

Daly’s roommate, Dan Rose, told us Hassan has been having financial and personal problems. “Just very irregular behavior, kind of up and down, a little bit recluse, depressed type of behavior,” said Rose.

The cab driver owns a house in Clairemont, but told his roommate that the bank is foreclosing on the property. Documents obtained by NBC San Diego reveal Daly filed for bankruptcy four years ago. Rose said Daly sent what money he could back to his family in Egypt.

Daly has five traffic violations and was charged with misdemeanor battery. Prosecutors later dismissed that case. Investigators now say 36 people were injured Saturday morning when a taxi crashed into a crowd of people outside Stingaree nightclub.

San Diego6 – As for the crash, some victims don’t believe it was an accident. “No horns, no brakes, no screeching no yelling – not anyone saying – get out of the way.” “All these people were out there waiting in line for their cabs, it was just the worst possible time.”

From Jihad Watch: 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, wasmentally ill, suffered from depression, and hadn’t being taking his medication. And Muhammad Teshale, according to “law enforcement officials,” “did it to be famous.”

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.
