CAIR Wants FBI To Investigate Anti-Muslim Road Rage Incident

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, via news release, is calling for an FBI investigation into a road rage incident in Murfreesboro Tuesday evening. It’s over an incident described by WSMV-TV thusly:
Converted Muslim Lisa Sallaj, 43, of Murfreesboro said, she hasn’t slept a wink since the road rage incident.
“I’ve been sick to my stomach. I’ve been shaking, nervous, lying in bed tossing and turning,” Sallaj said.
It all started on Medical Center Parkway near Interstate 24 in Murfreesboro around 8:30 p.m.
“He had just received his driver’s license. I was in the car with him,” the mother said.
Sallaj’s 18-year-old son was in a left turn lane, but needed to go straight. When the traffic light changed to green he pulled out right in front of a black Mustang.
“The guy went ballistic,” said Sallaj. “He went nuts.”
It got much worse.
“He started yelling and cussing saying you (expletive) need to learn how to drive,” said Lisa Sallaj. “Then I look over and he has a knife out shaking at me saying, ‘I’ll kill you.'”
Sallaj told her son to pull over so she can get the tag number. She started driving, but ended up right next to the black Mustang at a traffic light where the driver revved up his engine.
She said, he then started using anti-Islamic slurs.
Sallaj said, “He started saying ‘la, la, la, la, la, la, la,’ and making like racial slurs.”
The mother said, she really got scare when the man began yelling at her son.
“He said he would put a red bullet dot in the center of his eyes,” said Sallaj.
