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 Â 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."

Simple there are NO Muslim Americans ,Only Muslim invaders trying to take over!
That is because we can’t believe a word that comes out of the mouth of the lying POtuS residing in the White House.
They call always go back to the hellhole from whence they came if they are not happy here. ;-)
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.”
Oops, I misread the headline and didn’t read the text... an Emily Litella moment... “Nevermind”
So, therefore, who cares? They're liars and butchers.
As a member of Islam, a political system, one way or another, the members are supporting the terrorists. Period!!
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.

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.
