Muslim spokesman: "Muslims won't stand for airport body scanners"
Fox Morning News | 12/29/09

Posted on 12/29/2009 5:43:58 AM PST by pabianice

A Muslim spokesman was interviewed on Fox this AM. When asked if he thought that full-body scanners at airports would improve security, he replied that Muslims would never stand for them because they would show the bodies of Muslim women. The interviewer let that pass without any protest.

“Ask doctors if they are titillated by looking at bodies.”

That used to be true when men and women were people of character and integrity. Today, many gynecologists have the worst records of sex abuse. Familiarity does not always breed contempt—sometimes it breeds “temptation,” the pornography effect. I suspect the weak character of TSA types would tend to the latter. Very sad.

The thing is that the butt bomb needs to be taken out before detonation, because otherwise the bomber’s body will absorb most of the blast.

See the attempted assassination of the Saudi prince in charge of counter-terrorism. He was 2m away from the bomb and survived.

The movie Total Recall comes to mind in terms of body scanners.

As for that scanner image, it looks like something out of the movie Seven. Morbid.

Personally, I can't imagine being a gynecologist and not being either titillated or repulsed, depending on the patient being examined. Why would becoming a doctor change anything? You really have to wonder what prompts a man to choose that path.

Janet Napolitano has the solution - don't scan Muslims - scan Americans citizens only. Also, American have to stay seated the last hour of a flight - and Muslims can get up and walk around.

It's time to get real - it's time to profile.

No, no, no...lots of us still take the bus, believing it’s relatively safe. (At least we’re on the ground) I have to travel this weekend, and I’m actually pretty scared. Have to take that route from Columbus, Louisville, Nashville, Memphis, LR. There’s an infestation in every one of those cities.

“They won’t stand for it”. Oh really. Well they are the sole reason we have to put up with it so I say Muslims only through the body scanner and the rest of us walk right past it. We are not the problem. They are.

A ‘compromise’ will be achieved.

Only Muslim TSA women will be allowed to view female Muslim passengers.

When a Muslim woman with PETN stuffed up every orifice kills 387 people, it’s no problem, the complicit screener just missed one, if it even comes to that.

The scum in TSA and the scum in the FBI will approve because they’re ‘building partnerships’ with Muslims and ‘reached a meaningful compromise’. The FBI’s partner CAIR will give it their blessing too.

Employing muslims? Check!
Diversity? Check!
Cheek spreading for CAIR? Check!
The Marxist Muslim traitor in the WH declares victory? Check!

What about the innocent dead Americans? Who cares, been there done that. No Muslims were offended and the TSA, FBI, and CIA did all they could!

“Muslims would never stand for them because they would show the bodies of Muslim women.”

Apparently Christians have no problem with the bodies of their wives and daughters being examined by complete and frequently vile stangers.

I’ve copied the rest of you because you seem to understand one’s own dignity and integrity are not worth violating for the sake of measures which will never increase the safety of a single individual.

calex59 is absolutely right.

Here are the clear cut solutions.

1) Any person with a foreign name from countries other than those where terrorists originate from should be given less scrutiny especially in flights leaving this country.

2) Any person with a foreign name that is Muslim, Pakistani or African get the body scans.

3) Any person registered with the Democratic Party or any other radical parties get the body scans.

4) Any person who displays suspicious, fidgeting or nervous behavior that fits the profile gets placed on the next flight due to delays from questioning.

5) Every person who buys an airline ticket gets put through the terrorist and criminal database and detained if they show up for the flight.

“Personally, I can’t imagine being a gynecologist and not being either titillated or repulsed, depending on the patient being examined. Why would becoming a doctor change anything? You really have to wonder what prompts a man to choose that path.”

It has to do with one’s values. I seriously contemplated the field when I was younger. I have a profound love for women, but simply as the people they are, and women’s medical problems are much more complicated than a man’s, and I only desired to be helpful in that area. It would never have been a source of temptation to me, because my purpose would have been one entirely of integrity and decency. I suspect you are young. The idea of principles being the source of one’s desires is no longer understood.

These Muslim objections are complete nonsense. These machines are in use in Iraq and Afghanistan for screening Local Nationals wishing to go into high security areas. Most of them have jobs in these areas. No scan, no job. They all gladly undergo the screen.

A-Qaeda is now researching how to get around the scanners:

Via Drudge:

“Al-Qaeda practises beating body scanners”

http://www.rnw.nl/english/article/“al-qaeda-practises-beating-body-scanners”

A body scanner at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport would not necessarily have detected the explosives which the would-be syringe bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had sewn into his underwear. A Dutch military intelligence source told De Telegraaf newspaper that Al Qaeda has its own security scanners and has been practicing ways of concealing explosives.

The terrorist group has even carried out test runs at smuggling explosives through European airports, the paper reports.

On Monday Schiphol's operational manager Ad Rutten said the explosives carried by the 23-year-old Nigerian Abdulmutallab may well have been detected had he been scanned by one of the airport's 15 body scanners. Schiphol was the first airport to run a trial of body scanners, which use sound waves to see through passengers' clothing. At present the scanners are only an optional alternative to the conventional metal detector, as European privacy laws prevent them being made compulsory.

True, but not all that rare for people intent on killing themselves or into smuggling, from what I have read.

As long as the Feds run TSA muslims stand a good chance of receiving an exemption from any invasive search, at least on departures from the USA.

The article is nonsense. The reporter makes a wild a$$ assertion, then interviews the expert to back it up:

On Monday Schiphol's operational manager Ad Rutten said the explosives carried by the 23-year-old Nigerian Abdulmutallab may well have been detected had he been scanned by one of the airport's 15 body scanners.

Doesn't exactly support the assertion, does it.

Any system can be defeated. That's why its important to have a multi-layed system, using technology, observations, and physical searches. The biggest threat to our security systems is not Al Qaeda, its the political correctness of the political class.

Not so much. Well into middle age. I have plenty of love for women for the people they are, but I will be fascinated by their bodies until my last breath. Integrity and decency don't by themselves propagate the species. That, my friend, takes lust.

Such a simple way to solve the problem. And we could actually go to “random” searches which would still stop anyone with a genuine dread of such a search from flying, and the rest of us could keep our shoes on AND read during the final hour of approach with a comfy blanket on our laps. And maybe even knit, just like the good old days.

Sigh . . .

ACLU does not like body scanners either.

They show bags of drugs and bundles of cash.

No, seriously, ACLU has issues with detecting stuff that can’t harm a plane.

But, a bag of PETN looks just like a bag of heroin, so no body scanners!

>The choice is simple for all the protesters. Safety or modesty. Pretty stark choice.<

He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. Full body scanners should only be used if there are mitigating circumstances, such as a person who sets off the metal detectors or who pays for his ticket in cash, is on a watch list or who doesn’t have a passport. Forcing people who do not fit any profile to submit to what is essentially a computerized strip search is beyond the pale.

Oh, and as for your trite little comment above, some people have already purchased tickets, unrefundable tickets, to fly in the future. Herding American citizens who are not threats to anyone through these scanners does NOT insure safety.

Do you drive? Ride in other people’s cars? You might get in a wreck and die. How come you’re willing to personally take that risk, but are perfectly willing to disregard other people’s rights for some perceived idea of “safety” on an airplane?

Right after 9-11 I was seriously slammed here because I viewed the event as a declaration of war by the entire muslim faith, and saw the need to go to wage all out war just like in the 1300's. .

My reasoning was the obvious lukewarm support from what had been considered so called friends in the moderate muslin world. That has not changed, and our PC society/government will not come to grips that it is the intent of the muslim faith to destroy everyone who is not a muslim.

We will regret that strategy in the end.
