Here is a sure fire way of getting escorted off a plane in a post 9-11 world, stand up and start praying to Allah. The six Muslim scholars returning from a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation were removed from US Airways Flight 300 bound to Phoenix. Passengers on the flight raised concerns with the flight crew when the 3 of the Imams stood up on the plane and said their normal evening prayers. And we are supposed to take your word for this? Standard custom getting on to a plane is to find your seat and fasten your seat belt. Sorry if that does not conform with you. However, who flew airplanes into the Twin Towers, The Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania?
“They took us off the plane, humiliated us in a very disrespectful way,” said Omar Shahin, of Phoenix. The six Muslim scholars were returning from a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation, said Shahin, president of the group. Five of them were from the Phoenix-Tempe area, while one was from Bakersfield, Calif., he said. Three of them stood and said their normal evening prayers together on the plane, as 1.7 billion Muslims around the world do every day, Shahin said. He attributed any concerns by passengers or crew to ignorance about Islam.
No, maybe its your ignorance regarding a post 9–11 world. Maybe its the ignorance of Islamofascists perverting Islam. If these Imams want to blame anyone, they need to look no further than those that attacked the US on 9–11 and continuously spread terrorism throughout the world in the name of Islam.
Shahin expressed frustration that _ despite extensive efforts by him and other Muslim leaders since even before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks _ so many Americans know so little about Islam.
“If up to now they don’t know about prayers, this is a real problem,” he said. (Breitbart)
There is a saying … “when in Rome”. There is no way that passengers aboard an airplane will tolerate 3 Muslims standing up and praying at some designated point and time. Sorry. If you can not understand that after 9–11, then who is ignorant?
Much more from the Gateway Pundit.
The men were chanting ‘Allah, Allah, Allah,’ as they were transported down the jetway.
