The Truth about US Airways Flight 300
It’s unbelievable what is happening with the events surrounding the 6 muslim passengers being kicked off a plane.
Between the race-card players & the crooked anti-american muslim groups and the appeasing democrats, our ability to protect ouselves pro-actively is severly being compromised.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson-Lee, taking time off from complaining about names of hurricanes sounding to “lily-white”, said:
the September 11 terrorist attacks “cannot be permitted to be used to justify racial profiling, harassment and discrimination of Muslim and Arab Americans.”
“Understandably, the imams felt profiled, humiliated, and discriminated against by their treatment,” she said.
One of the race-baiting groups also chimed in:
Mahdi Bray, executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, called removing the imams an act of Islamophobia and compared it to racism against blacks.
“It’s a shame that as an African-American and a Muslim I have the double whammy of having to worry about driving while black and flying while Muslim,” Mr. Bray said.
And the first elected muslim to Congress, Democrat Keith Ellison has demanded meetings with executives at US Airways.
Now, let’s look at the truth and hear from witnesses who were actually ON the plane:
Witnesses said three of the imams were praying loudly in the concourse and repeatedly shouted “Allah” when passengers were called for boarding US Airways Flight 300 to Phoenix. “I was suspicious by the way they were praying very loud,” the gate agent told the Minneapolis Police Department. Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks — two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin. “That would alarm me,” said a federal air marshal who asked to remain anonymous. “They now control all of the entry and exit routes to the plane.” A pilot from another airline said: “That behavior has been identified as a terrorist probe in the airline industry.”
Nothing out of the ordinary, you know, switching seats on your own, moving to first class when you have coach tickets, asking for extended seat belts and talking about Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden:
Three of the men asked for seat-belt extenders, although two flight attendants told police the men were not oversized. One flight attendant told police she “found this unsettling, as crew knew about the six [passengers] on board and where they were sitting.” Rather than attach the extensions, the men placed the straps and buckles on the cabin floor, the flight attendant said.
The imams said they were not discussing politics and only spoke in English, but witnesses told law enforcement that the men spoke in Arabic and English, criticizing the war in Iraq and President Bush, and talking about al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. The imams who claimed two first-class seats said their tickets were upgraded. The gate agent told police that when the imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in first class when removed.
