    Do you get nervous when you notice people in Muslim garb on your airplane?

    Juan Williams was fired from NPR for saying that he gets nervous.

    NPR Fires Juan Williams Over Muslim Comments | The Blaze

    When you see (or if you saw) people dressed in Muslim garb getting onto your airplane, is there any moment of uneasyness or nervousness in you?

    Not nearly that paranoid.

    The guy in the grateful dead T-Shirt and the "**** you" hat concerns me more.

    No because the savage terrorists who blow up our planes are the ones dressed in affliction t-shirts and drinking beer.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    Holy crap! Juan Williams is someone of a unusually large amount of fair mindedness and integrity. This is very surprising.

    And no, such outfits don't bother me. I have grown up around Muslims since I was about 8. I think they look stupid though.

    I don't get nervous about their type of dress - no. I DO get nervous if you add in that they are nervous, or overly sweaty, or acting erratically but then again, that makes me nervous no matter who it is or how they're dressed.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Maybe, maybe not.
    I was supposedly abused when young, so my responses are "colored", even biased.
    More-so I am NOT sure at all as the appearance of a terrorist ..
    Mr Williams was being honest and open, maybe his mistake.
    Nor do I believe he was fired for this reason (being human)....
    I do know that the right-wing nut cases twist and spin the news - this I find to be despicable.

    Good response..
    And this is true for most of us..
    But fools can misinterpret this, non-fools can spin this into their own agenda.

    Yeah I know, as in why fear Muslims that fear flying. I'm gonna win the lottery before I meet a terrorist on a plane.

    This. A terrorist isn't going to draw attention to themselves by wearing traditional muslim clothing. They are going to do everything they can to look as normal as possible.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
