    I worked with cops, federal agents, and others up there, as well, who are of middle eastern descent, and practice the faith of Islam, but are AMERICAN in every possible way.

    Some of us may well have an emotional reaction to flying with middle easterners, while fully realizing that these people are our friends, neighbors and fellow citizens. It has nothing to do with them, and everything to do with our own phobias.
    Most Lebanese in this country are Christians, though, which is another fact often overlooked by those who just see "Middle East" and then jump to conclusions.

    Oh sweet mother of God. I am going to pay for you to come up to Boston and meet all the Muslim immigrants that I know just so you can see how wrong you are. Just because they are keeping traditions of where they came from or their religion doesn't mean they aren't loyal to this country.

    Do you also included native born (USA born) Muslims?

    Considering your beliefs, I'm not at all surprised.

    How about if we discuss reality instead of your fever-brained fantasies?

    I don't know. If the he you are talking is the poster, I maybe a little biased but I think he is a pretty cool guy. I would trust him for the most part because he has a pretty level head. I could literally go on about that fantastic person for ever.

    Do you have a standard of determination that you apply or do you just go by gut feeling?
