Prayer As A Sign Of Disobedience

romised a calm witness at the Minneapolis-St.Paul area Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) hearing—conducted to further address the increasing of refusal-of-service penalties for cab drivers reports—the city breathes a bit easier: "It was very well attended, especially by the Somali cabbies (must have been 100 of them). Also present were the NAACP, a Teamsters Union representative, Northwest Airlines, the Visitor Bureau, a couple of Imams, a number of blind people with their dogs and a whole lot of media. After about 2 1/2 hours there was a break. A couple of cabbies took the opportunity to pray, and chose an interesting...

Pissing In The Wind

he Pentagon has fostered 'toleration classes' for Islam—and separate bathrooms—and are in the process of setting up special places for them to throw down their prayer rugs, etc. These accommodation activities are absolutely ridiculous. The US is just pissing in the wind, as Muslims now claim they can't use the same bathroom as everyone else. As a nation, we banned this type of "special" treatment in the 1960s.

Two Views On Six Imams

S Airways went too far, says one righteous dude. They really treated these guys like manure, he says. Once they investigated them and their luggage, discovering that they didn't have any bombs or other dangerous contraband, they should have apologetically placed them on the next flight to their location and seated them in first class. Sadly, US Airways has no class. Or so says this same righteous dude. He admits that he doesn't have any problem with these six Imams being interrogated and investigated, but the airline should conduct its business of security with the utmost civility and respect. In...
