    Deja vu on this story. I seem to recall other incidents of this sort of bigotry and profiling by PASSENGERS leading to other "misunderstandings."

    Do you think the accusers should be rebuked for this? This sort of hatred is sickening and shows that there's still a nasty undercurrent of bigotry against American Muslims and like all bigotry the rational is all hate based and not fact based in the least.
    It wasn't a bunch of Roman Catholic Granny's that flew planes into buildings. It wasn't middle age mid western men either. It's not Soccer Mom's cutting heads off of their opponents in war. It's not Grunge looking, crack revealing, skate boarding potheads that protest against cartoons about Mohammad.

    No, just ignore the comments of people that might fit the profile of a terrorist and make, let's say interesting statements. Stick your head in the sand.

    I think people like you should be rebuked for not using your nogg'in, and painting self preservation as bigotry.

    If people don't like the manner their "profile" is treated, then aggressively change that profile. Don't shoot messengers that have experienced the wrath of their profile's repeated and unrelenting misdeeds.

    The thing that fascinates me about the above comments is the vacuum of reality it takes to think that passengers who LOOK like their terrorist countrymen are not going to be suspect and should exercise extreme caution when making vocal comments about security while at the airport or in an aircraft.

    Of course, we could ALL just wallow in denial and pretend that Islamic cultures are non-violent and don't go around blowing innocents up and decapitating their captives.

    Carry on.
    Ah, so you know what all terrorists look like? Why in the hell aren't you working with the government to wipe these bastards out?! You could be helping to speed up the War on Terror with your keen detecting skills instead of making pointless posts here.

    There you go again, confusing the PC crowd with REALITY.

    Only someone wallowing in denial, like you perhaps, can post such a trite personal attack in a vacuum of REALITY.

    I guess you and a few other PC kooks still don't know what terrorists look like and what their primary religious faith is.

    No one can help with the war on terror because PC people in Government and the mainstream media who like you think that terrorists are common criminals and can be contained through denial and “bury-your-head-in-the- sand” rhetoric like the above.

    The profound thing about the PC crowd like you is the notion that you could comprehend the threat and deal with it.

    Carry on; denial leads to ignorance, don't do denial.

    And when the terrorists turn or create a white American looking terrorist to do the deed you and other neocons will scream "Why weren't they checking everyone?".

    Carry on with your denial

    The reality: Terrorists have used planes as weapons.
    The reality: Terrorists have been Muslim.
    The reality: Cartoons are more offensive than cutting off heads of "infidels".
    The reality: People don't know how the next attack will be delivered or when, but you can bet it won't be by a Christian plantation owner.
    The reality: WASPs have not been the purveyors of terrorism.
    The reality: People keep their eyes open, and I can tell you as a frequent flier that their eyes, like mine, don't wander towards Europeans or Asians when it comes to identifying potential threats.

    When you see a Muslim looking individual coming into the cabin, you just pay a little closer attention. It's called self preservation.

    That's reality.

    You can't judge whether someone is a terrorist or not based on the clothes that they wear. That's one of the most idiotic assertions I've ever seen you make. Besides, do you really think that all terrorists dress like a stereotypical terrorist? Are clothing choices really the best we have to go on as far as classifying terrorists? If so, that's sad. I've read this story and saw the comments that these people made which led them to getting kicked off of the plane. I saw nothing that would lead a rational thinking person to believe that there was an actual threat. The bottom line is that people have become idiotic in their paranoia.

    No one can help with the war on terror because PC people in Government and the mainstream media who like you think that terrorists are common criminals and can be contained through denial and “bury-your-head-in-the- sand” rhetoric like the above.

    It has nothing to do with being PC, it has to do with being smart enough to not judge people on shallow criteria like clothing or religion. If a Christian had made those same comments there wouldn't have been an issue at all. When people get paranoid they get stupid. The fact that you would defend such people speaks volumes about you and your character.

    The terrorists have tried conversions for this purpose and they will continue to try. The attempt by the shoe bomber wasn't your typical Muslim. But you at least illustrate the fact that it is a "profile" that is responsible.

    Good on ya mate.

    Has that happened to any degree yet? Or is this another of your fantasy arguments that hold little water and contain little in the way of facts or reality?

    The bottom line is that one has to be wallowing in denial to believe that terrorists are not typically young Arab Muslim Males. In addition, terrorists typically come from an Islamic faith and are supported by those of Islamic faiths.

    I have never seen white people video taping beheading their hostages while video taping them or flying airliners into high rises; but you are free to pretend reality does not exist and that white urban and suburbanites and little old ladies are the ones boarding planes with the intent to hijack them.

    The moral of this story and the REALITY is this; if you are of an Islamic background or look Arabic, and that includes Israeli's, don't go mouthing off about security in airports or aircraft unless you are purposely wanting a trip to the FBI security area.

    Carry on; denial leads to ignorance, don't do denial.

    That's what I call double drivel. Almost embarrassing to read.

    Yeah, there has been unending acts of paranoia and stupidity. Everyday we see people calling for the cabin crew to report strange behavior. Everyday we hear of flights stopped and luggage taken off the plane, screened again and reloaded. Everyday we hear of Terror looking individuals denied the seats they have paid for.

    And No, that the terrorists are Muslims, that has no influence. Who cares... let's screen all Grannies because they seem likely to be the next group of terrorists in disguise.
