Amazing Photo: Nun Searched for Bombs by Muslim in USA
Jihad Watch ^ | Sep 22, 2007 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 09/23/2007 8:00:31 AM PDT by Travis McGee

Hijabbed security guard frisks nun (thanks to all who sent this in).

Of course there should be random searches, and no one should be exempt -- if any group is exempt, its dress will soon be adopted by the terrorists.

But there is an absurdity to this photo. And a hint that maybe we would do better devoting our resources to searching those who are more likely to be threats -- were that not so politically incorrect.

If you think this photo is absurd then you’re not serious about airport security. As you said, everyone should be checked. If we start profiling people who look arab then they will just send through recruits who look westernized.

Oh Yes those nun bombers are such a problem. Who knows what dastardly things a nun could have hidden under the folds of her black linen carapace.

I guess anyone can dress as a nun, but she would be pretty low on my list to search.

Hopefully, it was just a slow day.

The only thing that bothers me about this pic is that a muslim is working in airport security.

If you think most of the TSA efforts actually provide security, then you’re deluded.

It seems we won’t be getting serious about security until another 9/11 attack happens, and even then I have my doubts.

If you think hiring Muslims wearing hijabs to search passengers is providing airline security, you’re stark raving mad.

As long as we are looking only for weapons and deliberately refusing to identify the terrorists, we will never be secure. Our friends in Israel learned this lesson the hard way. It is a almost criminal that we are still too foolishly naive to do everything we can to keep our nation safe.

I can understand the reasoning but come on how many Hijabbed security guards have you seen at your local airports?? How many Nuns do you see wearing their habits in public or at airports lately???

Sorry but this almost looks like it was set up, American Flag and all.

I have no problem with this. I flew to Europe this summer and the security at Amsterdam’s airport was *much* stricter on the return flight to the US than it was on the trip over.

There were agents who asked detailed questions of all the passengers about their itinerary, etc but the Arabs on the flights were given much longer questioning. And everybody was frisked, while no one was frisked on the flight over from the US. A real eye-opener.

I have only flown once since 9/11. That was enough for me.

The Mexican border is wide open, but I get searched three times because I'm a white male.

I hope the airlines all go bankrupt. It would be the best thing for freedom.

Two months after 9/11, at Detroit airport, the lady checking my bags was a Muslim woman in full Hijab

All the photographer would need to do is hang out where a Muslim woman was working security, and wait for a photo op

Conservative religious orders of Catholic nuns do wear full habits, and this sister certainly looked quite legit to me. I suspect that TSA Agent Hijab was searching her just to make a point, though.

Most of the searching is absolutely useless unless one is going to catch the blatantly ignorant terrorist. What is the value of searching an old person who has a hip replacement especially when it is clear they do not fit even remotely the profile of terrorists?

Given what is allowed through current screening processes I’m certain that a terrorist or group of terrorists could easily breach security provided they are not on our watch lists or represent another red flag. The easiest way I see is with disassembled weapons. It only takes small amounts of seemingly innocuous metal or specialized ceramic or plastics to produce weapons just as effective as those used during the 9-11 hijackings. Even something as simple as a belt buckle modified to have a sharpened edge would be very effective for cutting throats.

I have seen many improvements where airport security is concerned especially in the increasing use of automation but the key thing we need to deal with the fact that they can get through our existing security. Tests have been conducted by DHS and they have succeeded in getting weapons and other materials through security checkpoints and onto planes during security assessments. We need to be ready for what happens the next time terrorists attempt to hijack a plane in the air because we aren’t going to stop it on the ground.

I know exactly what to say. It was wrong and everyone knows it. This Nun should have been taken to a private room, as they do with others, and searched if that’s what had to be done. And not done by a muslim who hates Christians. We shouldn’t even have muslims looking for muslim terrorist in security. Muslim women are subserviant to muslim men.....and you want them looking for terrorists? We are fools.

If you think all muslims are sympathetic to the nutcase, murdering jihadis than you have an inability to recognize who the real enemy is.

If you can’t spot him, how are you going to defeat him? You’ll just end up flailing away at anyone who meets your broad definition of the enemy...while the real ones slip by you.

Unless you’re saying ALL muslims are you’re enemy.

I was picked for “extra security” on my way home from San Antonio at the end of August. There was no private room for my pat-down.

There was no privacy while they rifled through all of my belongings.

I asked the guard why I got the cavity-search, he replied “This isn’t a cavity search!” I said, “You are pawing through all of my private stuff, it certainly is to me!”

He ended up telling me that my airline had “selected” me for “extra screening”.

This is why interviews by trained personel should be the main line of defense. No one would have to frisk a nun, or me either.

This is Detroit Metro airport.

Well, crap. I’m catching a flight to Frankfurt out of DTW in November, and from there to Tel Aviv.

FReepers have any suggestions on how to avoid being felt up by this Mohammedan, that won’t result in missing my flight and ending up in a jail cell?

From the photograher, Dean Shaddock:

This was captured as I collected my things from airport security (Detroit Metro Concourse A). I think of it as something like a Rorschach test. Is an elderly Catholic nun being frisked by a Muslim security agent the celebration of blind justice? Or is it simply an admission of absurdity?

The nun should not be exempt from a search but she should NOT be searched by someone whose beliefs include the death of anyone whose religion is not hers. In this case the Nun is a shining example of all the muzzies detest and the search should have been conducted by someone other then her.

Pretty much, yes I am. Any Muslim that does not stand up and DENOUNCE terrorism in my view condones it. Far to many have been silent.

“I have no problem with this.”

I don’t either. I returned from Paris the day after the London plot was busted up. Yow - insert probe now - the French authorities were very thorough (but somehow didn’t seem to come across like the bunch of minimum wage, couldn’t find work elsewhere, numb skulls we have here in the good ol’ USA).
