Praying Or Probing?
As I look at these behaviors, the only thing I can conclude is either they were intent on bringing down the plane (apparently not; no weapons found), or were intent on probing security systems on behalf of someone who would later tray to bring down a plane. Here's what they did, according to WashTimes:
Witnesses said three of the imams were praying loudly in the concourse and repeatedly shouted "Allah" when passengers were called for boarding US Airways Flight 300 to Phoenix.The paper reports Mahdi Bray of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation called the imams' removal an act of Islamophobia. It's not; it's just a phobia against crashing in a ball of fire into a building. And Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, the Texas whacko, said, "Understandably, the imams felt profiled,humiliated, and discriminated against by their treatment."
"I was suspicious by the way they were praying very loud," the gate agent told the Minneapolis Police Department.
Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks -- two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin.
"That would alarm me," said a federal air marshal who asked to remain anonymous. "They now control all of the entry and exit routes to the plane."
A pilot from another airline said: "That behavior has been identified as a terrorist probe in the airline industry."
I say good, great. Let them feel that way until they learn how to behave in a country that doesn't much like what radical Islam is doing to us.
