A Little More Light

Ann Coulter sheds a little more light on the incident where 6 Muslim Imams were removed from a US Airways flight. Turns out they weren't just praying, there was a lot more to it than that. I would have been concerned, too.

Witnesses said the imams stood to do their evening prayers in the terminal before boarding, chanting "Allah, Allah, Allah" -- coincidentally, the last words heard by hundreds of airline passengers on 9/11 before they died.

Witnesses also said that the imams were talking about Saddam Hussein, and denouncing America and the war in Iraq. About the only scary preflight ritual the imams didn't perform was the signing of last wills and testaments.

After boarding, the imams did not sit together and some asked for seat belt extensions, although none were morbidly obese. Three of the men had one-way tickets and no checked baggage. Also they were Muslims.

Unfortunately, the media is helping CAIR along with its claims of victimhood. Tucker Carlson of MSNBC, of all people, takes the leader of CAIR to task about their claims of racism, etc. Although Tucker sympathizes with the "wrongs" these Imams endured, he is bothered by CAIR's making a political event out of it. Little Green Footballs has the YouTube video of the interview.

All of a sudden, we have people, not just Muslims, fretting about our fascist America and how we are "profiling" Muslims now, how we are all racists, Islamophobic, etc. etc. etc. Sheesh. Next they'll be asking for reparations.
