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.

Call Us Airways and let them know we Americans will be happy to fly their airline now, since we would feel much safer.

That's where the fat bellies come in...

Hehehe... Southwest would make them buy an extra seat for the belly.

How about if fried pork skins become the standard airline snack food? At least it's low carb. :)

US Airways, America West, and soon Delta, all under the same roof. If I could get them to boycott Airtran, Allegiantair, and Southwest it would cover all my flights!
Boycott 'em all.
Please.

A boycott by imams is going to hit the airlines where it hurts. That'll teach 'em.

I hope they do announce publicly a boycott of US Airways. Then watch US Airways bookings skyrocket as it becomes the no-muslims airline! Ha Ha!

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

Yeah. They don't realize that their business will increase.

If Muslims are boycotting US Airways, then I'm going to try to make sure that every flight I take is a US Airways flight. I wish they would boycott Southwest Airlines and Jet Blue.

No such thing as "Muslim scholar" -- just propagandists for the cult of death and murder.
