Minneapolis Muslim Mayhem

(Doesn't that sound like a headline from the Daily News or the New York Post?)

AP has a piece up about the latest bit of "anti-Muslim hysteria": six imams removed from an US Airways flight leaving Minneapolis for Phoenix.

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.

Excuse me. The concerns were due to ignorance about Islam? Have the imams ever stopped to consider what happened on 9-11? The various highjackers stood in unison, probably said their last prayers, then proceeded to raise hell.

I don’t blame the passengers on that plane one little bit. I would have done the same thing.

Much as I despise preznit, I wish the boy had gone into Afghanistan and completely destroyed al-Qaeda and their Taliban supporters. If he had done that – instead of getting sidetracked on his fantasy war in Iraq – we would not now be considered a “rogue nation” by many.

Muslims claim Islam is a “religion of peace.” It’s hard to square that with the daily reports of the latest Muslim atrocities, either against Christians or against their fellow Muslims.

Have all Muslims been given a bad rap by the misguided actions of a few? Hell, yes.

But, given what 19 Muslims did to our country five years ago, Muslims must be nucking futs to think that they’re not going to be watched like hawks. Deservedly or not, Americans are going to view all Muslims with suspicion for many years to come. The Muslims are just going to have to deal with it.

Of course, it would help if the Muslim leaders could get their followers to stop killing everyone in sight…..


  1. Excellent, well put. The quicker all mosques are closed the better

  2. I'm sorry you have that opinion. With that logic every blond white man with blue eyes and a flattop should be checked for explosives or shouldn't be allowed to rent a truck or by manure. Timothy McVeigh, how quickly you were forgotten.

    People need to get a clue, America his more homogeneous and people need to learn about their neighbors and their customs before they start wigging out. Minneapolis to Phoenix on a round trip ticket. After the police knew they were coming and now they are on their way home.

    Nice country we have here. Maybe all religion should be banned. For safety's sake.

  3. That would be "buy manure".

  4. As a matter of fact, I believe it SHOULD be a lot more difficult to buy a couple of tons of fertilizer (unless it's delivered directly to a farm). And let us not forget that El Sair Nosair and the rest of the 1993 (Muslim) WTC bmbers also used an ANFO bomb in a rental truck.

    And for what it's worth, a blonds white man with a flattop is more likely to be tagged for aditional screening at an airport than a Muslim-appearing male, due to "political correctness" (since DHS and TSA aregoing overboard to avoid the appearance of "racial stereotyping").

    Since I'm a Jew and all, I guess the next time I see a priest on a flight, or a passenger cross themselves, I should start screaming that they are terrorists bent on my destruction?

    Jesus Christ. They haven't had to defeat us. We have defeated ourselves by hiding under a cloak of fear.

    Funny. When I was a kid, America didn't do fear.

    Now it's all we do.
