The American right to refuse service...

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

islamic law is not relevant in this issue.

In America it is a long and well established right to refuse service as long as that right is clearly posted. If these Muslims own and operate their own cabs, they have the right to refuse service to anyone as long as it's posted. The cabby's business starts at the door of their cab. The airport and government officials should not intervene in someone's personal business operations.

However, if the cab belongs to a company with a contract with the airport or the city, employees of said company are obliged to accept all passengers.

It's that simple!
