BLOG: Question: Do you get nervous when you see a Muslim on your airplane?

In the wake of Juan Williams's firing from NPR, Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly asks CAIR spokesman if he's happy that Williams was fired:

At 7:20, Kelly asks if Williams has the right to start a dialogue about how Americans feel about this issue, but instead of answering the question the CAIR spokesman fires back:  Do you get nervous around Muslims on airplanes?

So.  Let's pose that question to you readers.  No hate,  just honest opinions please:

Do you feel nervous or apprehensive in any way if you board an airplane and see a person who appears to be a Muslim?  If so, why? 

(What a stupid question, no?  Only the liberal folks at NPR could deny every day reality with such chutzpah.  Behold the power of political correctness.)

While thinking about it, watch this short video of the Flight 93 memorial I shot during a visit to Shanksville PA over last weekend:

44 lives snuffed out by men who looked like Muslims.  Islamic extremists.   olive skinned terrorists. 

Hmm.  How are we supposed to explain 9/11 without raising the ire of CAIR?

Should we just say that those 44 lives were snuffed out by a 'plane crash?'

I'll be the first to answer the original question:  Of course I get nervous.  Especially if there's more than one person on the plane who appears to be Muslim.  I get nervous because 99.99% of all hijacked airplanes are overtaken by olive-skinned men who appear to be Muslim.  This paranoia, that dare I say is shared by most air-travelling Americans would be a whole lot easier to dispel if there were a larger portion of the Islamic faithful who denounced the small group of radicals who've hijacked the perception of their religion.

Is my fear irrational?

Of course.

If you compare the number of flights that are not hijacked to the number that are, the nervousness most people feel could be described as "irrational," but then again, when driving a car, in the back of one's mind is the fear of being involved in a car wreck.  When you compare the number of cars on the road to the number of wrecks and consider the unliklihood of actually being involved in a car wreck, you could also describe the car-wreck fear as "irrational." 

Defensive driving is born of a healthy amount of fear.  Defensive flying is too - but I guess you're not allowed to come right out and say it.

Bush was an a** when he came out and stated that Islam is a relgion of peace. The truth is Islam is a relgion of hate against all who are outside its mighty arm of enslavement, mutilations and murder.  The Quran and Hidth is full of commands to enslave or murder all who are not committed to Islam.

Pope Benedict got into trouble when he quoted a Byzantine emporer saying:

'Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'  and this is still true after almost a millenium. 

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers.  Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.  Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

 

Bukhari (52:177) - Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

Tabari 9:69  "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us"  The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

Ibn Ishaq: 327 - “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."

"It was written in their Qu'ran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners,whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise." Sounds familiar? Keep in mind that this was the doctrine of the Barbary Muslim Pirates to justify their attacks on shipping in 1801.  I wonder if the residents of blissville and libtards realize that the verse from the shores of tripoli in the Marine Hymm was about the raid led by Stephen Decatur and marines to destroy the U.S.S. Philadelphia which was being used to shell our ships after it ran aground on a hidden reef chasing a muslim corsair. Those that have their head in the sand should pull their head out and take notice that 911 was just one battle in the Jihad war being carried out by muslims. Since 911 there has been 16,278 terrorist attacks around the world. In September 2010, there has been 172 attacks in 23 countries involving 5 religions with 703 dead bodies and 1454 innocent people critically injured. Methinks there are more than 19 terrorists.

excellant post Goofus, Most people, including many Marines do not know the history of WHY the Marines was even started, it was because of the Barnaby war!!  The Muslims took our navy ships & cargo and put our Sailors into SLAVERY and made them subject to their rule, then they sold them back to the US. But that ended when our president (unlike Bush and current) had the nerve and conscience to say "ENOUGH" and formed the Marines and sent them over to kick but!  Like usual, the cowards who murder and run seeing they were in trouble made peace and gave back our ships, cargo and sailors. THen 200 years later they are doing the SAME THING! Pirates are all around the middle east, they plunder, murder, enslave children, mutilate their women, and I should be expected to cuddle up to them on a plane or anywhere else? NOT! They want us to respect them then let THEM live a life that is respectable instead of being murderers who propagate and preach hate and Jihad.

Because a news network runs stories that the lamestream state run media refuses to makes them biased? We all know the lamestream state run media will never besmirch Obama.

Oklahoma voters will have the chance next week to weigh in on a constitutional amendment that would prohibit courts from considering Islamic or other international law when deciding their rulings in state cases.   The anti-sharia ballot initiative is known as State Question 755, or the "Save Our State" amendment, and it already has the approval of majorities in both houses of the state legislature. The effort is being spearheaded by ACT! for America founder and bestselling author, Brigitte Gabriel, who wrote They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It. She says the constitutional amendment would prevent Islamic extremists from taking over the Sooner State.

"There is actually a huge pocket of terrorist organizations operating out of Oklahoma. I know this because I work with members of the FBI who are in counter-terrorism and who are paying attention to what's happening in Oklahoma," she explains. "What we are seeing right now, not only in Oklahoma, but nationwide [is] where there is a large concentration of Muslim population, [there are] more demands and more push for sharia law."

Her group's radio ad relates the judge's decision in a New Jersey family court case. He did not grant a restraining order against an Islamic man who continually abused his wife.

"When she went to get a restraining order, he didn't give it to her because he said that her Muslim husband was within his Islamic right, and he did not believe the Muslim was doing a crime because it's within his religion to do that to his wife," Gabriel laments. "Thankfully, the judge was overruled a year later."

But she contends that even one case like this is unacceptable, which is why her group wants the people of Oklahoma to understand the importance of supporting the "Save Our State" amendment.
