    Two imams pulled from plane bound for North Carolina

    Muslim group: two imams pulled from plane bound for North Carolina - CNN.com

    I understand the fear after all that has happened over the past few years. However is it necessary to pull two individuals who have passed security off a plane, because they've made some people uncomfortable?

    thoughts?

    Think if I did this with some ancient white lady they'd react the same way?

    The two -- who hold high religious positions in the Muslim community -- were headed to North Carolina for a conference on prejudice against Muslims, or Islamaphobia.
    Ironic isn't it.

    Can you imagine what would happen if I told the Attendance on the plane I was uncomfortable because there were a couple Black guys on the plane wearing berets?

    Talk about the fit hitting the Shan.

    I'd strike a conversation with one of those brothers.

    Well it could only be a couple because those are the only two black guys who wear berets in the entire country.

    Depends on why people (/pilot) felt uncomfortable. I don't think the airline/airport (or whoever made the decision) did anything wrong here. They weren't on the plane to know what exactly went on - they only heard from others that there was a problem. They did the right thing by removing the individuals, re-screening them, and then comping their tickets for a later flight when nothing suspicious was discovered.

    In short, if anything, it was the prejudices of the individuals on the plane and the pilot that may have caused this embarrassing incident, not anything the company itself did wrong.

    Actually they re-screened them, did nothing wrong and the pilot refused to let them back on and took off.

    People are retarded.

    These men were badly mistreated. I hope they file a complaint. There is no way that passengers have the right to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down on fellow passengers. The pilot should be suspended and fined for his behavior.

    Ironically, they were heading for a conference on Islamophobia, and how Muslims are being mistreated in America.

    This is horrible. What rational did they have to deny them their flight? The only thing I can glean from this is that the pilot and passengers said they were uncomfortable with flying with 2 men in traditional Islamic dress. This is wrong on so many levels...
