Flying Imam's Actions & Motives Questioned

Hat tip to Cox and Forkum for the cartoon. I think it only reasonable that airline passengers question strange behavior; their very lives could depend on it. You can read Cox & Forkum's related commentary and links HERE. Some other links and excerpts:

THE FAKING IMAMS -- Pajamas Media Exclusive: Police Report, Passenger Reveals That Flying Imams Were Up to No Good
[...] One thing that no one seemed to consider at the time, perhaps due to lack of familiarity with Islamic practice, is that the men prayed both at the gate and on the plane. Observant Muslims pray only once at sundown, not twice.

“It was almost as if they were intentionally trying to get kicked off the flight,” Pauline said. [...]

There are a lot more details in the article. There were many, many things these Imams did that caused pasengers and airport staff to be concerned. Add them all up, and it's easy to see that something really stinks. There was nothing "normal" about their behaviour.

With the case of the Flying Imams making news, Muslims in Minneapolis have decided that they need their own private prayer room in airports.  Evidently part of what attracted special attention to the Imams was their praying in the airport. [...]

What's next? Special Muslim sections on airplanes?

US Air Imams; a political publicity stunt?
[...] Civil disobedience? What they are doing is trying to make our present system of security unworkable, and to create a climate where the actions of Muslims cannot be questioned. For what purpose? [...]

Political Correctness in Europe is used to silence political opponents, squelch free speech and debate, and thus control the populace. This tactic is also taking root in North America. It can only do so if we let it. Let's NOT.
