If this is true, then of course its absolutely absurd and the pilot should be spoken to by his employers.
However we as Muslims need to come out and challenge the very rhetoric and individuals that are vilifying Islam

It's not the rhetoric that is vilifying islam it is the actions of muslims throughout the world. muslims have demonstrated an intolerance and hatred for all non-muslims where they are in the majority; it's the fundamental nature of islam, which can not be changed. All muslims seeking true peace should come to Jesus Christ or Redeemer.

There is no such thing as an islophobic, a court in Dearborn, MI, has ruled, in the Rev Jones case, that to fear isalm is very rational and is not a phobia.

The right is using the death of Osama to justify torture. Last week war criminals like Rumsfeld, Cheney and Condi Rice were all over news channels stating how wonderful torture is.*rolls eyes*

People in the US need groups to demonize; they can no longer demonize blacks and Jews so they are left with Mexicans and Muslims. Mexicans have strong allies among liberal elites so demonizations of Mexicans and other non white Hispanics have been confronted. While on the other hand, the US government wants to control Muslim nations and so the dehumanizing of Muslims is encouraged!!!

Can you think of any group of people who would be investigated???? Can you imagine the outrage of if congress held a hearing on Blacks or Mexicans??? But somehow people of Middle Eastern origin are investigated, held without trail, sent to secret prisons.

Duh! muslims are the ones doing all the killing in the world. If muslims laid down their arms America would be out of all muslim nations tomorrow; but they want to fight. The Iranian president threatens Israel with genocide; mulsims in England threaten to fight till the islamic flag flies over England and America. I for one have no desire to live in an islamic theocracy. Don't say islam is not a threat to freedom; just look at any country where muslims are dominant.

There is no word "Islamophobia" but Islamofascist. If someone don't want to sit next to a girl in a burqa, in an airoplane, they have all their damn right.
