Arrested Imams Behaved Like Terrorists, Now Hiding Behind First Amendment

Arrested Imams Behaved Like Terrorists, Now Hiding Behind First Amendment
Bill Wilson, KIN Senior Analyst
WASH—Nov 28—KIN--The six Islamic Imams arrested last week at the Minneapolis airport may have been on a strategic mission to probe airport security and to be catalysts to a lawsuit that would eventually tie the hands of airport security personnel from their mission of preventing airline security risks. The more that is learned about the incident, the more authorities are saying that the Imams behaved like they were preparing to perpetrate an act of terrorism on the plane when authorities arrested them and questioned them before setting them free. Reports in the Washington Times and other accounts of the incident indicate a classic probe of airport security by Islamic terrorists.
Officials say that the Imams drew attention to themselves by praying loudly in the airport before boarding the plane. Then two Imams took seats in first class, two in the exit rows at the middle of the plane and two in the back of the plane. The two in first class just sat in the seats as they had no first class tickets. The Imams asked for seatbelt extenders although none of them were obese and they set the extenders between their feet on the floor. The Times reports that the Imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11th terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks—of controlling all exits from the plane and the plane itself front, middle and back.
The Imams and any future terrorist likely learned that the airport security acted properly to prevent an attack from this example. But now, the Imams are crying foul because they believe they were discriminated against. Earlier this week, representatives from the NAACP, the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, the Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ, and the Shalom Center in Philadelphia held a “pray in” at Reagan National airport in Washington, D.C. to protest racial and religious profiling. They prayed before boarding a U.S. Airways flight to Philadelphia. The group apparently intends to make the incident a First Amendment religious freedom issue.
While crafty Imams, as joined by unwise compromising accomplices in Jewish, African-American and Christian circles, try to hide behind the First Amendment, their actions, if successful, would give open access to terrorists at the expense of public safety. Racial or religious profiling makes sense when almost all terrorism has Arab-Islamic origins. The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:15-17, “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”
