    In any even, besides being Muslim, there were no other reason to raise alarm bells in this case, as being Muslim alone is not good enough of a reason. What the heck happened to common sense?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Clearly the Koran orders believers to dominate and claim all nations for Islam and Allah. Clearly these folks have nothing to do with that but then again they have everything to do with that.

    This is exactly why the Patriot Act helped protect Muslims.

    Everyone saw that the Government was taking stern measures to keep us safe so the vigilantes did not have to take things into their own hands.

    But there is nothing to keep Americans from taking actions such as this every day of the week whenever and wherever possible.

    That's why we need a national referendum on the matter of Islam and Jihad so that we can reach a consensus and this kind of thing won't be happening more and more.

    If it was a misunderstanding, the airline owes those people money. If not, it was a reasonable safety precaution.

    Would you rather they be allowed to hijack another plane?
    And 50 years ago you would be defending Japanese Internment on the same basis. Case closed.

    Yeah, some people seem to have lost theirs.

    Of course not. It makes you a prudent person who wants to get home alive.

    There is nothing in the Japanese religion which is inherently hostile to our system of government.

    Case closed.

    When was the last time you heard of a bunch of Hasidim or Seventh Day Adventists blowing up so much as a disused Porta-Potty?

    On the other hand how many times have we been treated to internet videos of abject savages slowly cutting off the heads of bound, screaming prisoners while chanting Allah Akbar?

    Do try and pay attention to the world around you, it will teach you so much if you just open your eyes!

    It wasn't typical Americans who instigated a global conflict by blowing up planes and flying them into buildings. I hate that good people are inconvenienced but I would rather the occasional nine are inconvenienced by zealous vigilance than the ocassional 250 be killed because of lax vigilance.

    I do think the airline should have given them priority in rebooking once they were cleared, however.
