WALKING ON EGGSHELLS: Today’s Washington Examiner has more on the flying imams.
Airlines have the right â€” and the duty â€” to protect their passengers. The security protocols established as a direct result of Sept. 11 inconvenience and sometimes even humiliate everybody who flies. If you donâ€™t want to submit to the indignity, stay off airplanes.
And the only way to counter ideological jihad is to speak the truth: U.S. Airways did the right thing by removing these six provocateurs from the plane.
The imams’ behavior, and the followup by groups like CAIR, will only tend to support those who view American muslims as a threat. That’s unfortunate.
