'Flying imams' rewarded for ominous airline 'stunt'?
It's a jubilant night over at CAIR.
The nation's self-proclaimed foremost Muslim civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is celebrating what it calls a "victory for justice and civil rights" and an end to the fear of "flying while Muslim," thanks to a legal settlement reached earlier today.
But a best-selling new book, which definitively exposes CAIR as an arm of the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood, reveals the highly disturbing "rest of the story" of the six "flying imams."
Most Americans remember the Nov. 20, 2006, spectacle of the half-dozen Muslim clerics who were kicked off a US Airways Minneapolis-to-Phoenix flight after engaging in behavior that alarmed both passengers and crew before takeoff. Many on board feared the imams – who prayed loudly in Arabic, refused to sit in their assigned seats, fanned out in the cabin in pairs to occupy the front, middle and rear exit rows, ordered seat-belt extenders they didn't need, criticized the Iraq war and President Bush, talked about al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden and other disconcerting behaviors – were testing security procedures in a dry run for a future hijacking.
