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