Another piece from the Christian Science Monitor, which treats of a court case being brought by six imams removed from an American Airlines flight after complaints from concerned passengers. I will let the article speak for itself on this episode of paranoia and ignorance gone mad; the airport police report is revealing of how shallow American understanding is of those crazy guys that kneel and pray to Mecca: '6 suspicious Arabic men on plane spread out in their seats'. 'Arabic' is a language and does not refer to a people, the word they are looking for is 'Arab'. Intelligent people should know the difference.
