The Walking Imams

Sarwat Husain (president of the Council on American Islamic Relations-San Antonio) says:

"One ignorant passenger got nervous and passed a note to one of the crew members, accusing the imams of something they did not do or say, only because he had watched the imams praying."
It's simple. People know and can recognize aggressive eye contact. They recognize scowls.

And here's a thought: how is it that of the three hundred people on the plane, not one passenger has come forward to say, "wait a minute, the Imams were minding their own business,"? Was it a plane filled completely with ignorant bigots? And again, one witness said, "I travel to Turkey frequently and know many Muslims personally. The behavior of the group in the gate area was atypical for my experience w/ Muslims, incl among other things, aggressive eye contact in response to mine."

Nah, the passengers did the right thing. I'm sure those who did come forward with their concerns did so with great reluctance. Nobody wanted a confrontation, well, except for the Imams. The walking-imams.

There are no shortage of reports on this....seems that these goomers were deliberately trying to provoke a response.
They got what they were asking for.

. . by clicking on the upper hyperlink below, you'll bring up the graphic that illustrates my proposed concept for a 9/11 memorial , , ,'

. . . oh, yeah, you might think that the "circled A" detail looks familiar . . . well, it is . . . it was lifted from a royalty-free photo of the moon . . .

. . . as for why the moon should figure so significantly in this memorial, well, let me tell you it took me quite a while to get some inkling as to the REAL motivation of the "gollums", who either rammed or attempted to ram those airline jets into civilian targets . . .

. . . anyway, after viewing the graphic, please consider clicking on the hyperlink just underneath the first hyperlink mentioned . . . I believe the text at the other end divulges in precise and concise terms just what the hell was in the back of the mind of those bloodthirsty antiquated poltroons . . .

. . . oh, yeah, you might be put off a bit by the text . . . okay, so it's only fair to mentioned the blog post in question may be unsuited for perusal by people with squeamish disposition . . .
