A Muslim guy saving a Jewish man from a hate crime: that's a miracle?

Jewish man saved from attack by Muslim
NEW YORK, Dec. 12 (UPI) --
A Jewish man who allegedly was the victim of a hate crime in New York last week was saved from serious injury by a Muslim bystander, a report said.
The New York Post reported Wednesday that while Walter Adler was being attacked by several assailants on board a Q train, Bangladesh native Hassan Askari entered the fray and held off the attackers until police could board the train.
"A random Muslim guy jumped in and helped a Jewish guy on Hanukkah -- that's a miracle," Adler said of his rescuer during last Friday's attack.
Adler told police that a group of passengers allegedly attacked and insulted him and his friends after they responded to a Christmas greeting by wishing them a happy Hanukkah.
After police arrived, 10 people were arrested and six were charged with assault.
The Daily News said the individuals also face hate crime charges for their alleged actions, accusations at least one of the suspects has strongly opposed.
I found it funny that this is being touted as a ''miracle''...imho, that's a very Muslim thing to do.
