fear of being called racist

Reader comment on item: [Brandeis University President Jehuda] Reinharz, Israel and Me
in response to reader comment: If You Don't Like Radical Muslim Influence, Then Restrict Muslim Immigration!

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), May 12, 2007 at 09:02

The reason no politician will say " We must restrict muslims from coming here ", is FEAR. The fear of being labeled a racist. At times some muslims scream racism if someone disagrees with them. Some muslims were on a plane, they were yelling prayers and then on the plane asked for seat belt extenders ( even though none of them were fat), they did not even use them but rather placed them on the floor. These seat belt extenders can be used as a weapon., it is a belt with a large metal chunk at the end.

They ran to different parts of the plane ,changed seats with one another. When they were removed from the plane , two were found near the cockpit (in first class) but they did not have a first class ticket. They then yelled it was racism. They then are suing the airline and the police and . . . the passengers who alerted the pilot. This is dangerous because it will cause other people who see some thing suspicious to fear telling any one.
