    Muslim cab drivers save Jewish bagel shop - US news - Life - msnbc.com


    One of New York City’s oldest Jewish bakeries has been rescued from closure by an unlikely source: a pair of Muslim cab drivers who promise to keep it kosher.



    Peerzada Shah and Zafaryab Ali recently took ownership of the Coney Island Bialys and Bagels, a landmark fixture anchored at 2350 Coney Island Avenue for 91 years.

    The bakery was about to shutter in September when Ali, a former staffer, learned of its demise and decided to save it — keeping it in the same spirit of its original owner, Morris Rosenzweig, a Jewish immigrant from Bialystok, Poland, who founded the shop in 1920.

    Joseph Jackson, a bakery employee for 30 years, recalled his boss’s tough call.

    “He said he was not pulling enough and couldn’t do anymore,” Jackson said, adding “I took it real bad.”

    Jackson said he was retiring this year, but planned to stay on to help the new owners grow their business.

    "The two men are very, very good-natured, well-intentioned and just good people," Jackson said. "They want to keep the bakery kosher and I want to help them succeed."

    Muslims and Jews traditionally have gotten along just fine. The present antipathy is a 20th century phenomenon. Stories like this are heartwarming and I hope an inspiration to others.

    Capitalism and democracy combined are a very strong force.

    How I wish more Americans would embrace the combination that made us great.

    Give any people a society in which their hard work pays off in a sustainable living while providing service to their community and then let them live their lives and believe what they believe without prejudice and you will see a society of mutual respect.

    This beautiful melting pot has done it far too many times for any fools to deny it can happen.

    People are people.

    Its time to stop spewing stupid lies about your fellow Americans people

    Take your own advice. It's actually not bad.

    I believe in encouraging people to work hard and provide service to their community. That's why Im a Republican.

    I don't believe in giving people who havent worked the money of others after taking it by the force of Government.

    why do you always have to lie about your opposition?

    Letting the poor starve in poverty is NOT good for this country no matter how much you pretend it is.

    I'll check these companies out. Might even order some clothes from them. Looking at their prices though, it is understandable why Walmart and all the big box stores do so well. There are many people out there who just can't afford $45 for a pair of jeans or a shirt. I'm sure the quality is superior to what you will find at Walmart, but the fact is that a lot of people aren't going to pay that kind of money for a pair of jeans.
