This is an unfortunate event for anyone. My sympathy is for the airlines, however, in that they must take every piece of information very seriously. They have no other choice but to do that for the safety of their passengers and crew. In a secondary fashion, I feel sorry for the family who had to be removed even if only for two hours. I feel bad that they had to be interrogated and made to feel they had been profiled. The reason was that passengers overheard them say something suspicious. What specific statement or statements that caused fear are unknown at this time. The reason I primarily feel sympathy for the airlines is that they are most likely frequently placed in awkward positions. This began with 9/11 and the murder of over 3,000 innocent Americans by Islamic Muslim terrorists. If Muslims would stand up in their mosques and protest the intolerance of other faiths in this country where they, incidentally, are given freedom to worship how they choose, I might feel more sympathy for Muslim profiled people. In my opinion, until they stand up as a people and reject the fascist Islamic rhetoric, the controlling, lock-minded, hateful and radical Islamic freaks who terrorize whole nations including England, Spain, France and America, they will be profiled and OH WELL… Anyone who thinks most mosques are innocent places of worship in this country is living in a fantasy land.
Experts estimate that 80 percent of American mosques are funded by Saudi Arabia, which, according to a study by Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom, disseminates propaganda though American mosques that teaches “Nazi-like hatred of Jews” and Christians and spreads the radical Wahhabist ideology shared by Osama bin Laden and the 9-11 attackers. Freedom House also found that many American mosques “promote contempt for the United States because it is ruled by legislated civil law rather than by totalitarian Wahhabi-style Islamic law.”
It is no secret that many mosques in our own country represent a radical hatred toward those of other faiths. Profiling is not right, but if Muslims don’t want to be profiled, they need to deal seriously with the Islamic terrorists in their own places of worship who promote terrorism, violence and intolerance toward those outside their own religious circles.
