A group of Muslims was detained Wednesday at Orlando Sanford International Airport, apparently because of a misunderstanding over an Islamic cleanliness ritual, authorities said.

The captain of Allegiant flight No.625 from Allentown, Pa., radioed ahead and asked airport police to meet the plane when it landed about 8:30p.m., said Larry Dale, airport director and commander of its 11-member police force.

Islam and modernity don’t mix well.

“Muhammad Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida, said devout Muslims customarily clean their private parts with water after using the restroom, and that is likely what members of the group were doing. The procedure is known as istinja.” Muslims cleaning their genitals on flights ping

I call BS. Muslims go the rest room all the time without causing such a commotion. There is water and paper towls in there and it takes almost no time to clean whatever they wish to clean.

This is a ploy to get us "accustomed" to muslims hanging out in rest rooms.

They need to put a sticker on the escape hatch door that says “Muslim-Only bathroom”.

Years & years ago I worked for a muslim doctor who kept a watering can in the restroom. We had no plants in the office. Now I know what it was used for!

Screw 'em. These a--h's need to be grounded. Airplanes are not places of worship.(altho probably a lot of prayers go up around final approach.)

This is the second muslim related incident on an airplane in as many days. Dry runs? Testing responses?

The Islamic religion and reasoned deportment when flying don’t seem to go hand in hand. Maybe it’s time to reconsider allowing them to board domestic aircraft.

Don’t we all have religious customs in the toilet, that alarm people? Religious imperatives that can’t be addressed before or after a flight?
No?
No.

Traditionally they were allowed to wash with sand where water was scarce.

Or a propoganda campaign to garner public support for the next TSA humiliation--like installing digital video recorders in plane restrooms.

Or a wudu pre-prayer washing ritual.

"religious custom dictating cleanliness"

I've been near these guys and I haven't sensed that trait.

THANK YOU, dice! Been in the dumps over the crack up of our country, and sorely in need of a laugh-out-loud. YOU just supplied it! Thank you, for a break through! Got anything else? ::)

God be with us.

They have no right to terrorize people by hanging out in the airplane bathrooms. Jerks.
