Imams on a Plane

Posted on | May 7, 2011 | 13 Comments

Apparently it’s not just Juan Williams who has this problem:

An airline is investigating the removal of two imams from a flight headed to North Carolina, ostensibly because passengers felt uncomfortable with their presence of the pair — both clad in Islamic attire.
The incident occurred Friday on an Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight from Tennessee to North Carolina and it involved Masudur Rahman and Mohamed Zaghloul were wearing traditional Muslim dress, CNN affiliate WCNC reported.
The two — who hold high religious positions in the Muslim community — were headed to North Carolina for a conference on prejudice against Muslims, or Islamaphobia.

Dear Islamic clerics:
Maybe next time you should have one of your wives
drive you to the Islamaphobia conference. Just sayin’ . . .

In case you’re forgotten the famous moment that got Juan Williams fired from National Public Radio:

“When I get on a plane, I gotta tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb . . . I get worried. I get nervous.”

Some things you just can’t say out loud, no matter how true it may be.
