Flying Imams "Stage" Protest

The Washington Post unwittingly stumbles onto the truth of the Flying Imams by noting they "staged" a protest at Reagan National Airport today. Considering this whole episode is an orchestrated stunt, "staged" is the perfect term.

"These things are troubling to us," said Mahdi Bray, executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation. "Driving while black, flying while Muslim, traveling with a Torah or getting with Jesus."
Getting with Jesus? What the hell does that mean?

The imams, who were returning from a religious conference, had prayed on their prayer rugs in the airport before the flight. After they boarded the flight, a passenger, who was alarmed by their activity, passed a note to a flight attendant. The men were taken off the airplane, handcuffed and questioned.

"It was the worst moment in my life," Shahin said.
Aww, the poor thing. Anyone who's followed this shady stunt knows it was much more that the story describes here, but that's the lamestream media for you.

Jammie - You're absolutely correct about this. Look how long (short?) a time period it took for that newly elected muslim Congresscritter from Minneapolis to get involved in it. Jeebus, you'd think he was taking lessons from the Right Reverend Al Sharpton, or it was a Set Up all the way.
And why did the 6 board the plane together, then sit in 6 different locations of the plane, not to mention that 3 of the 6 had only one way tickets.
Great Post.

How soon until the guy who complained about the "imam's" gets blasted for "hate thought" or something along those lines? I'm just surprised the airline had the good sense to pull them off the plane and find out what the story was.

I read somewhere that the airline involved is not backing down and is supporting the actions of the staff

Good for them
