You obviously missed a few details............

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: Muslims Condemning Terror

Submitted by Timothy (United States), Dec 10, 2006 at 23:27

I went to your blog and noticed your typical response about the muslims that were recently removed from a passenger airliner. You said "Praying in an airport "spooks" people. Who cares about the First Amendment...if you aren't a white Christian, you're scary and your movement should be limited".

You obviously paid no attention to the details that concerned the passengers of that plane. Here's a couple.

1.) The Muslim clerics did not go to their assigned seats. Two went to the front of the plane in first class, two went to the center of the plane (by the exist), and two went to the back of the plane. Very similar to the 9/11 highjackers. 2. ) They requested seat belt extenders, these are designed for obese people who can not fit into a typical seat belt. None of these gentlemen were even close to obese. Could a metal buckle on the end of a long strap be used as a weapon ?? hhhmmmmm. 3.) Their attitude when they were questioned and eventually requested to leave the plane.

Let's talk about the prayer at the airport............ I'm sorry .........but.....everytime I hear Allah Akbar people are being killed. I personally don't think these men were any threat to the airplane or it's passengers. I do wonder if their intention was to attract attention just so they could scream discrimination. And rally more of their muslim brothers who are sitting on the sideline into to thinking that their religion is under attack. Face reality, not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslim.
