Will the islamophobia never end?

It’s a good thing the British authorities banned Robert Spencer and me from speaking about jihad in the UK. How’s that dhimmitude working out for you, limeys?

Islam is a religion of peace, you racists! What could possibly go wrong?

Stay on top of what’s really happening. Follow me on Twitter here. Like me on Facebook here.

“90-minute airport queues as staff even check iPads: Terror alert creates travel chaos as passengers face security crackdown,”

– Stricter checks will focus on smartphones after US officials highlight risk – Intelligence chiefs say iPhones and Samsung Galaxy models face controls – US officials warn Britain has been turning ‘a blind eye’ to terror threats —Queues build up at Manchester and Gatwick after new measures begin – Angry passengers complain of 90-minute waits to get through security – France follows Britain in bringing in stringent controls and warn of delays – Comes after US officials say terrorists are developing ‘stealth bombs’ – Airports insist waiting times are due to the holiday season and not checks Frustrated holidaymakers faced long delays at airports yesterday on the first full day of increased security checks.

Queues stretched outside the terminal doors at one airport because of the crackdown – brought in amid fears Al Qaeda has developed a ‘stealth bomb’ undetectable to scanners.

Air passengers around the country were subjected to ‘vigorous’ body searches, with their shoes removed and swabbed for traces of explosives. airport crowds terror Queues at Manchester Airport this morning, the day after new security checks were brought in to search for so-called ‘stealth bombs’ which are feared to be undetectable to airport scanners

Passengers joined queues starting outside Manchester airport today, with many complaining of delays

They were also told to switch on their tablets, smartphones and laptops to prove they are not hiding something more sinister. Some customers said it took them 90 minutes just to get through security – and holidaymakers have now been warned to allow for least three hours before their flight time.

Angry travellers branded the delays an ‘absolute joke’ and ‘like wading through treacle’. Airline chiefs are braced for further problems as one of the busiest weekends of the summer gets underway.

The checks have been brought in due to fears that Al Qaeda’s top bomb-maker Ibrahim Al-Asiri has developed a non-metallic ‘stealth bomb’ that can be hidden inside human bodies or other devices.

The use of body scanners, swabs and patting down have all been increased at UK airports while some bags are being searched twice.

Passengers are removing shoes and belts as a matter of course, while those on US-bound flights are likely to face further screening and searches of bags at the boarding gates.

The alert has sparked fears of a summer of travel chaos with holidaymakers facing invasive personal checks and long delays.

Heathrow alone handles more than 190,000 passengers a day and across the country 24million people will fly abroad before September – 3million to the US.

A spokesman for travel industry body ABTA said: ‘The main thing is to make sure that airports have sufficient measures in place to ensure all the available security gates are open.’

At Manchester Airport, officials said problems were made worse by many travellers arriving earlier than normal because of the extra checks. Some complained they were left standing outside the terminal building before they could even check in.

Sam Lavelle posted pictures of fellow passengers queuing in the drop-off zone outside Terminal One, writing: ‘The queue is literally outside the door and onto the road.’ Elissa Corrigan described the wait as ‘soul destroying’.

And Ian Moreno-Melgar, who was heading to Belfast for a wedding, tweeted: ‘Queuing in the car park for security isn’t normal.’

But at Heathrow passengers appeared resigned to longer and more intrusive searches as they were subjected to what one termed ‘American-style security’.

Will the mooselimbs phobia (and hatred) of Judaism and Christianity never end? That's the question that needs to be asked repeatedly.

For the record, I fear no mooselimb, but since they threaten me, I want islam eradicated. Peaceful religion, my a$$!

......”Will the mooselimbs phobia (and hatred) of Judaism and Christianity never end?....That’s the question that needs to be asked repeatedly”....

No it doesn’t need to be repeated because that hatred is built into their belief system from infancy....When one understands what Islam is, instead of what Muslims and the Progressive Globalists would have us believe, the real question is when is anybody in our country going to stop the Islamification of the USA?....which needs to be repeated frequently.

Well I certainly fear Islam.

It is cancer, hostile, predatory, metastatic, pervasive, infects every aspect of life, and forces multiple prayers/day.

Staggering control of mind, society, everything.

Hee-hee-hee, you certainly understand the situation.

Now talk to your congress critter and see if he is as smart as you are. Doubt it.

They’ll get the picture only if one of their immediate family members get hurt or killed by some muzzie.

” ‘stealth bomb’ undetectable to scanners. “
So how are they screening passengers? Eh?

They should have never let the bearded savages in their country. Now they are paying the price.

Am soooo PO’D about this...and all which is getting unhinged worldwide. We’ve tried unceasingly to warn people and they simply are as stupid as when they voted for Obama...and remain so.

There’s a cloud of deception over this nation..and it’s getting darker by the minute!
