6 Muslims Removed from Flight for Saying Prayers

Another proud day for America:  6 imams were kicked off a US Airways flight from Minneapolis to Phoenix because passengers accused them of "suspicous activity" on the plane.  The aforementioned suspicious activity was the 6 men praying.  There are so many things wrong with this that I can’t even discuss it.

OK, there’s more.  A spokesperson for the airport said that "said some witnesses reported the men were making
anti-American statements involving the Iraq war, asked to
change seats once inside the cabin, that one requested an
extender to make his seat belt larger even though he did not
appear to need it and that in general ‘there was some peculiar
behavior.’"  Yes, they were kicked off for praying and criticizing the Iraq war.  And because one of them felt a bit bloated.

  1. I’d like to hear from Michael Richards on the subject.

  2. Are you two a couple of morons or are you just under twenty years old?
    You make me sick.

  4. No, we’re just a couple of morons.

  5. They were “praying” just like someone pulling a trigger was just “exercising his finger”.

    In fact, as we are seeing now, their actions were a deliberate provocation intended to get them ejected from the plane, so as to launch an absurd (and dangerous) so-called “civil rights” case against the airlines.

    Fact is, their behavior was consistent with the behavior of the 9/11 murderers (and many other Islamic extremists) prior to their crimes.

    Unlike El Al Airlines (which has remained one of the safest because of their policy of questioning anyone for any reason) US airlines have been obliged to avoid so-called “racial profiling”. And so, they are left with behavioral profiling. And if that is taken away, then we are left with no protection whatsoever.

    If the 9/11 murderers chanted “Mary had a Little Lamb” before killing everyone, then I would be nervous about groups of men chanting that song on my plane.

    Just as you can’t cry “fire” where there is none, you can’t behave like a terrorist and expect to be left alone.

  6. Bill,

    You’re an idiot. The 9/11 hijackers weren’t praying or making “anti-American” statements prior to getting on the planes. Their whole point was to “blend in” – just the opposite of the Muslims in question.

    You bring up El Al – their record wasn’t so good in the 1960s and 1970s. Since the 1990s, Royal Jordanian probably has a comparable record – and you see Muslims praying all the time in, around, before, during, and after the flight.

    And Muslims who pray (as they’re required to) are “behaving like terrorists”? Please – no matter how you try to justify your prejudice, in the end you’re just a prejudiced fuckhead.
