U.S. Airways made an intelligent move
On Nov. 23, the Associated Press reported: “Muslim clerics taken off flight call for boycott of U.S. Airways.” Six Islamist imams, all Arabic males,threewithone-wayticketsandnochecked baggage.Whatpreciouslittle(thoughsolidlyjustified)profilingofairtravelers(asreluctantlyapproved, even despite the usual Kennedy-PelosiKerry-Schumer-Rangel-Biden protest) is “tolerated” was immediately denounced by the AmericanIslamicRelationsCouncilataraucous pressconferenceinPhoenix,beforetheobliging, gleeful cameras of CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS. TheIslamicCouncilleader,OmarShakin,wailed about being humiliated because some of the imams were bad-mouthing America’s anti-terroristeffortsinIraqbeforetheywerebootedoff the airliner by its captain. I wonder how humiliated Omar felt on 9/11, 7/17 and other similar Islamist “triumphs.” The screeching of these “wronged”Muslimclericsreverberateloudlyall over the world. Airline passenger rejections suchastheseoccurdailyallovertheworld,even hourly,atno-nonsenseIsraeliairports,wherehijackings by Muslims are non-existent.
Because of actions such as what occurred in Minneapolis on Nov. 21, may I suggest that all free-world security organizations take notice of Islam’s reaction to this incident. If, as a result of such effective, concrete profiling measures, a self-imposed boycott of our airlines by all Muslims themselves should occur, the Muslims would have instantly solved our worst security problems. Should any apostate Muslim attempt tobypasstheirownboycottand“flyAmerican,” theusualsecuritypersonnelcouldpromptlyremind them of their no-fly boycott.
