The following is a short article I wrote on zappuu:

The suit of the six imams

Thursday, March 15th 2007, 8:39 AM 5 0

The six Islamists who were ejected from a US Airways flight last November are now suing the TSA and US Airways. This is absurd!
They were causing a disturbance and frightening the other passengers with their actions. They changed their seating from what they were assigned and positioned themselves just like hijackers. They asked for seat belt extenders they didn't need, which could be used as weapons. They were politely asked to exit the plane and gave resistance. All in all, they acted just like terrorists. They were likely doing a "dry run" to test the security procedures in place. Who knows what would have happened, if not on that flight, on the next one.
The TSA and US Airways should be congratulated for doing their jobs. This lawsuit is frivilous and any sane judge should dismiss it out of hand as the undermining tactic it is. These men have no valid grounds. Our courts and our tax dollars shouldn't be tied up so they can cry.

I would be gratified id you would care to comment or to post it. Thank you.
