Muslim Scholar Calls For Airline Boycott
Star Tribune ^ | 11.21.06 | Bob von Sternberg

Posted on 11/21/2006 9:57:04 AM PST by wallcrawlr

One of the Muslim scholars removed from a US Airways flight on Monday today called for imams around the country to boycott the airline after employees refused to sell him new tickets for his flight home.

On Monday, Omar Shahin and five other imams had gone to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to fly home to Phoenix after attending a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation. Shahin is president of the group.

But after passengers raised concerns about the imams — three of whom said their normal evening prayers in the airport terminal before boarding the Phoenix-bound plane — the imams were removed from the flight and questioned by authorities.

This is a win/win. It will make the air safer, and will end racial profiling at the airports. /sarcasm

Hey, I'll fly U.S. Airways every time if the Muslims will boycott it! That would make it the safest airline in the world, except perhaps for El Al.

The airline is certain to roll over on this. An apology, perhaps concessions, sensitivy training. Mark my words.

This reminds me of the Eddie Murphy bit on SNL from years ago doing a "White Like Me" bit. When the last two ...african americans.. get off, the bus erupts in a party. It's a classic. Getting his loan was great too: "Pay us back any time...or not...we don't care"

From the article......Later this morning the scholars were able fly standby on an 11:15 a.m. Northwest Airlines flight.

Hope the air crews de-sanitized the cabin before you get on!

Imagine the advertising - "US Airways, the only US airline Muslims won't fly". It should be worth another 100,000 passengers per month.

Americans know so little about Islam

I learned all I'll ever need to know about Islam on 9/11.

Muslim scholars

I just can't wrap my head around the concept. It's like dry water.

Otherwise, I'm all for the boycott. The fewer mohammedans in the air, the safer the world will be.

"Let 'em book flying carpets"

Unfortunately flying carpets just don't have the same impact potential when flown into a building.

...called for imams around the country to boycott the airline...

Might be a good step in ensuring Islamic fanatics no longer fly airplanes into buildings...

Hmm, if they don't want to board planes to blow them up, they'll have to resort to using S.A.M.'s from the runway.

Because the moslems are like any other kleptocrat, they think if the steal the USA they will have the power of the USA.

It is like the old cartoon of Hagaar the Viking who can't figure out why the spigot/faucet he stole does not have water magically flowing out of it.

The Imans of mainstrean islam think that by "taking" the USA they will have the industrial power of the USA.
