Shoe Bomber, Oklahoma Bomber , IRA, ETA...To be fair though, I dont see any white people blowing up planes, Can you blame the general public.
I agree but surely you cannot refuse to board a plane because 'there are Arabs on it'. This only makes the problem worse and increases the divide - tarring everyone asian or arab with the same brush as a small minority of terrorists. What if you said you wouldn't get on a plane with black guys on it in this day and age? Or Irish? They would leave you behind. If everyone in the boarding area has passed the same security checks, why shouldn't they board? Treating people in this way will surely only make them feel more distant and perhaps identify with the ideals of extremists...now 3rd and 4th generations are using dress and
appearance and language to segregate themselves from the wider british
community, now start doin this one several of your race/religios
compatriots have just attempted to blow up 10 airliners then .... its
not very clever is it really!!!
I agree with you totally - nothing wrong there. But if you have checked out the two guys wearing ripped jeans, pink shirts and Tony and Guy haircuts in the queue and they are clean, should you be able to refuse to board a plane with anyone dressed like that?A "Metro" in town comitts assault on someone, The description is put out, Ripped Jeans, Pink shirt and a Toni & Guy haircut. Are the authorities going to be looking for a guy in Slacks, Deck shoes and a poloneck sweater..........
I dont know, The worlds gone PC mad.
Nail on the head there Andy.Unfortuanetley not all moslems are terrorists BUT all terrorists have been Moslems....
If you tell a kid theres a monster in the cupboard they will beleive, no matter how smart they are. If their bombared with bs by their parents and meia that all Muslims are terrorists and as some one here put it all terrorsits are Muslims what are they gonna believe?"Worst thing is that the kids were the ones to judge, taught to hate and become racist because of their parents and the media."
You can only influence children so far, They have thier own views and opinions just like any other person, I honestly cant blame the kids at all.
You can make excuses all day long, Fact is, it was muslims (Again) theres no denying it.
If these people dont want to people to "hate and become racist" dont give them a reason.
I was listening to Radio 2 today and it was being discussed...a woman on the flight described the situation. They saw the two Asian males laughing and joking, one left the queue for check in and then came back (normal people NEVER do that right?), they were heard speaking 'in a foreign language' (wow! stop the press!), and were spotted rifling through the seat pocket in front of them (I mean who on earth reads the onflight magazines?!). Apparently passengers were screaming, a stewardess was crying, and they begged to be let off...Mikedav,
Your missing the point as well. It was because they were acting suspicously more than anything else.
