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 typically don't get that nervous. When I board a plane, I prepare to kill everyone equally.

Ask If they think someone who insults the "Prophet" or burns a Koran deserves death (??) I've personally done this years ago in the matter of the Salmon Rushdie nonsense. Some very Westernized articulate, educated, modernistic guys said that the Koran needed special status and that those against it or who belittled it deserved attack.
Seriously, I know people will think I'm a bigot, but I know I would be nervous. I'm not around Muslims much, and I've only flown once. So both things would put me on edge because of 9/11.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I didn't get nervous. Then again the last time I flew on a plane with a Muslim person was when I was in middle school. I was flying by myself and all he had was a duffel bag so I got pretty nervous. This was about 2004, I think the fact that I was so young and that it was just a couple years after 9/11 ought to be a valid excuse for my irrational worries.
I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
