    Re: 9 Muslim Passengers Removed From Jet

    Ok, heres my opinion on this. Once the FBI cleared them the airline should have let them fly. On the other hand I understand how the other passengers could become suspicious. Muslims know many Americans are suspicious of them to begin with. So why say things that would raise a red flag. Anyway Its a shame this family had to be treated this way but thats where we are in todays society. The Airline would have been derelict to do nothing once the other passengers concerns where brought to there attention.

Nobody would have seen 9/11 coming if the thing they were looking out for was muslim clothing like 'turbans'. Using it to justify 'random' searches and unwarranted fears of anything Muslims is bs if that is the reason they cite. Not saying thats what you did. That's just what it seems like when people support taking Muslims off planes because of how they look.
    The airline never said they were dressed like Muslims from 9-11. It was responding to a complaint. And no one here has advocating jerking muslims off planes because they are muslims.

    However, I am fully behind the idea of taking greater care with muslims because it has been shown that muslims have a proclivity for bombing planes while in conflict with another country. If there is a report of a chinese guy stabbing random people, I don't think the police should be wasting time looking for a black guy just to appear unbiased against the chinese when everyone knows they are looking for a chinese guy anyway.

    I remember when i flew from Heathrow to Germany and Somaliland back to UK. I was dressed in the full abaya and hijab as well and i didn't get stopped once minus the mandatory security checks and a few nervous glances lmao.
    Maybe US is just more harsher with security, when my brother went New York a few years ago he said it wasn't worth the hassle of the forms that was needed to be filled and the time taken to get through security

    I demand that today be made 'Terrorists bring their kids to work' day.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I don't recall arguing the 9/11 Terrorist were wearing Turbans... I was merely commenting on your enormous ego problem.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I never said the airline said that. From what I've read a lot of people here were saying that with not so many words.

    Uh. Yeah. It's been my experience that most suicide bombers who hit the west tend to look conservatively so as to not attract suspicion. You know. Lacoste shirt, pants etc.

    America had 911, do you expect a different response?

    I don't think it's worth taking a risk with either mode of dress just to appease the "you're a racist" weenies.

    MY point, was that terrorist are not averse to using children as part of their attacks, thus saying "well they had children with them so obviously there is nothing wrong" is flawed. This is hard for you to grasp.
