Muslim Americans still find acceptance elusive in the wake of bin Ladenís death
Yahoo ^ | 5/11/11 | Liz Goodwin

Posted on 05/11/2011 4:39:45 PM PDT by mgstarr

On Friday morning, Masudur Rahman boarded a plane to attend a conference in North Carolina on Americans' distrust of Islam. Agents with the Transportation Security Administration had twice screed both Massud and his traveling companion Mohamed Zaghloul and determined that the two men were not a threat, and they were cleared to join all the other similarly screened passengers on the Delta regional flight operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines.

That's why it came as a shock to the pair when the staff ordered them to deplane, reportedly because the pilot didn't want them on board. An Atlantic Southeast  spokesman says the airline is investigating the incident, and that the company takes "all allegations of discrimination very seriously."

Rahman and Zaghloul didn't arrive at the conference until the evening, and Rahman said he was too stressed by the experience to concentrate on the weekend's topic of "Islamophobia," or the fear of Islam.

"I was humiliated. I was not feeling good," he told The Lookout. "I thought maybe my children will think in the future, 'My dad was singled out and forced to get off on the plane.' It was an emotional shock." (Rahman has two children under six years old.)

"America is a land of justice and a land of law and that's why people like to live over here," he says. "If somebody is facing some injustice, American law and American people stand behind him or her."

People follow the teachings of the son of Satan and then can’t understand why they are distrusted.

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that keeps these deluded souls from emigrating to one of the many muslim paradises that enforce sharia law and other enlightened islamic teachings.

If you want to keep a philosophy (not a theology BTW) that is against every single American principle then be ready to have it held against you.

If the airline disciplines the pilot, that airline should be punished by “customers.”

The commerce clause should never have been expanded to deny a private business the ability to choose its clientele and the airlines should never have been granted immunity for failing their common carrier duty to safe guard their passengers.

Taqiyya is a practice in Shi'a Islam whereby adherents may conceal (ed. Lie about) their faith when they are under threat, persecution, or compulsion.

So, therefore, who cares? They're liars and butchers.

I'm not going to read past the title on this one.

"Muslim Americans still find acceptance elusive in the wake of bin Laden’s death"

It should have read.

American Mulims still find acceptance elusive in the wake of bin Laden’s death

The agenda was in the title.

A phobia is an irrational fear.

Fear of muslims is not at all irrational, just like fear of a rapid dog.

Perhaps rather than spending his time attending conferences on so-called Islamophobia, Muslims should spend their time loudly condemning the adherents to their “faith” who behave like barbarians.

Maybe if these Muslims started condemning Islam and Sharia Law here and then actively taking steps to do something about it, then maybe there would not be this distrust and suspicion of Muslims.

Maybe.

Just sayin’.

No problem exists. Either GTFO of this country, or repudiate Islam.

I read that a muzzie called a cabin attendant an infidel dog on a plane not too long ago.

Do not think that the sheeple will figure this kind of thinking out until it is like it is in france, and too late.

Poor victum muzzies will slash our throats when they get strong enough.

We have Muslims yelling “Allahu Akbar!” while trying to break into a aircraft cabin and they wonder why we don’t trust them.

So do Egyptian and Sudanese Christians, Christian and Jewish Saudis, and Israelis worldwide.

NO Cheers, unfortunately.

I think that she saying that the silently approving community of “moderate” muslims, still haven’t found people being accepting of them.

Of course they haven’t found a warm reception and I hope they never will. Time for them to return to where they are comfortable.

That's because Osama wasn't the problem.

Maybe it is because we never hear about Muslims speaking out about rabid, violent, extreme, radical, head-lopping, women-hating, intolerant, freedom-hating, 12th century, ignorant, allahu-ahkbar-screaming freaks that commit wicked deeds in the name of Islam.

Muslims have zero desire to assimilate. They are quite happy to settle in to an area and turn it into a replica of where they came from. Americans will never accept any group of people who act more as invaders than as proud Americans.

Did any of these ‘Muslim Americans’ ever disapprove of the persecution of Christians by their fellow Muslims overseas?

But then again, I should not be so harsh against Islam — neither have any of our “Christian” congress critters.

Y0ur post beat me to it. Muslinn - American is anoxymoron. They do not honor their oaths of citizenship, nor do they support te constotution. What they want is “sharia law” which gooes against everythinng the constitution stands for.

Muslims are a curse on America, and they hate America and will always seek tio conquer it from within and convet our nation to one filled with contempt , rage, and violence, with the standard being ,” an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth,” all in the name of “Allah.”

There should be NO immigration from Muslim countries allowed to the USA. Being Muslom should be a disqualifying factor for immmigration to the USA.

True.

And if he is not reelected we will still see some very, very nasty stuff between November 6, 2012 and January 20, 2013.
