    Does this make you wonder if this was indeed staged, or planned, by the Imam's in question?

    Passengers Sued Over Imams' Removal

    Associated Press Writer

    MINNEAPOLIS - Six Muslim men removed from a plane last fall after being accused of suspicious behavior are suing not only the airline but the passengers who complained - a move some fear could discourage travelers from speaking up when they see something unusual.

    The civil rights lawsuit, filed earlier this month, has so alarmed some lawyers that they are offering to defend the unnamed "John Doe" passengers free of charge. They say it is vital that the flying public be able to report suspicious behavior without fear of being dragged into court.

    "When you drive up the road towards the airport, there's a big road sign that says, `Report suspicious behavior,'" said Gerry Nolting, a Minneapolis lawyer. "There's no disclaimer that adds, `But beware if you do that, you might get sued.'"

    The six imams were taken off a Phoenix-bound US Airways flight on Nov. 20 while returning home from a conference of Islamic clerics in Minneapolis.

    The lawsuit against the passangers should be dismissed. I don't mind if the one against the airline goes forward.

    Once again the left inability to discriminate rearing it's ugly head again. In a sane world, people who look, act, and follow the same actions and beliefs as those who murdered thousands of innocent Americans, would be happy that they are still allowed to travel. Why we strip search Grandmas and avoid questioning Muslims is absolutely INSANE!!!!!

    Profiling is an accepted, logical form of police work. It is used everyday, yet somehow we are now led to believe that it is wrong. White kids in expensive cars coming out of Washington Hieghts onto the GWB are routinely pulled over, because, the Police KNOW THEY JUST BOUGHT DRUGS! It has nothing to do with their race, or any random thoughts, it just makes sense. Why else would a rich white kid from New Jersey take his Daddy's Mercedes into Washington Heights? The only sane answer is to buy drugs.

    Racial profiling is the absolute biggest crock of **** every dreamed up by the courts. Honestly it started with troopers on the side of the highway, if the governemtn employed lawyers with an once of common sense, they would have just taken the entire jury to the side of the highway at 2 o'clock in the morning and watch the cars go by at 80 MPH and then turn around and tell me the race, or even the sex of the driver.

    Maybe, just maybe, if the muslim community showed evne an once of remorse over 9/11, people would not assign guilt to all of them.
