Not sure where the Irfan's have been living in the US ,apparently their experiences with the US population are limited. Any non-white person who has seen enough of the country will quickly become aware of the divisions that still exist.
Not too smart of them to be talking about accidents and disasters on a plane flight while all decked out in Islamic wear.

The pendulum looks poised to revert back to the good old days of tolerance.
The BinLadan family will get through with no problems after this little incident.

Brothers Kashif Irfan, 34, an anesthesiologist, and Atif Irfan, 29, a lawyer, both Alexandria residents, said they believed that their families and a friend were profiled at least in part because of their appearance. All but one of their group are native-born U.S. citizens, and the ninth is a legal permanent U.S. resident, they said; six are of Pakistani descent, two are of Turkish descent, and one is African American. All five adults and a teenager appeared traditionally Muslim, with the men wearing beards and the women in head scarves, they said. They were on their way to a religious retreat in Orlando.
...
The incident began about 1 p.m. Thursday when Atif Irfan, his wife, Sobia Ijaz, 21, and Kashif Irfan's wife, Inayet Sahin, 33, took their seats at the rear of the plane.

Officials said two teenage girls sitting nearby became alarmed when they heard Sahin remark that sitting near the engines would not be safe in the event of an accident or an explosion. The girls told their parents, who told a flight attendant, AirTran officials said.

Apparently your knowledge of what Muslims look like is very limited.
Is this how you see them?

Drew,
The Palestinian-Israel war is a territorial conflict. One side is still too dumb to realize they are on the losing end.

WTF does the Palestinian Israeli conflict have to do with this thread, beside a good portion of the Palestinians ARE CHRISTIANS in case you didn't know, actually I am sure you didn't know.

Yes, it's not a religious conflict. IT'S A TERRITORIAL CONFLICT.

Anyway, back to the current thread, what the Irfan's did was akin to David Duke and family in white outfits talking about their next BBQ meet in a Chicago subway.

Since you want to bring that subject again: It is indeed a territorial conflict for both side but more of a religious agenda for the Israelis. Are you going to dispute the fact that Israel is built on the premise that it is a Jewish state? How about our religious right, how do they see this conflict?
