A taxi driver has today been jailed for 15 years yesterday for mowing down eight men ‘like a bowling ball’ with his black cab.

Majid Rehman, 29, deliberately used his car to run over the men walking on a pavement after a row at a railway station taxi rank.

A court heard how furious Rehman deliberately ran a red light and drove ‘at speed’ towards six railworkers as they walked home from the station, just yards from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Shocked commuters watched as his cab ploughed into the six railmen and two innocent passers-by in rush hour carnage.

Judge Phillip Richards told him: ‘You sent bodies flying in all directions, one being trapped under your car.

‘Your intent was to cause them all serious harm. It was intolerable behaviour in a civilised society.’

The court heard Rehman was on the taxi rank outside Cardiff Central train station when a row flared with the railway workers.

Prosecutor Claire Wilks said: ‘Six of the men were leaving the train station wearing high visibility orange suits as they walked away from the train station. Along the way some of the group began to argue with Rehman.

    This is a good start, now put a lot more in to keep him company.

    Even if this guy does not actually believe that infidels deserve to die and was merely acting out of childish anger caused by a petty row, he is still a product of Islam.
    The Muslim culture instils a certain attitude from an early age, an attitude that believes that violence is justified especially where ‘honour’ is concerned. Muslims do not have the mental faculties, nor the emotional maturity to win arguments by reason or restraint. He probably felt justified in doing what he did. This is why many Muslims can’t be trusted. Even the ones who have shaken off the ‘Muslim superiority’ mentality, have still got the cultural scars of a lifetime of Islamic environmental upbringing. They have grown up seeing their parents fight (the mother knows her place) and have endured a childhood of bullying others and also being bullied by other Muslims. They have learnt that telling lies and shouting loud is the way to get what you want in life. They simply cannot be trusted not to ‘fly off the handle’ when things go wrong!

    Exactly. In the West, people are taught to have a thing called, ‘character’. Typically this means handling situations were things do not go your way or even very unfairly towards you with good grace.

    People with character are admired in our culture although this is vanishing fast in a post modern era. In Islam, the opposite of character is admired or it sure looks that way from here.
