I doubt very seriously that if Habib is gonna try to take down a plane, he's not gonna draw that kind of attention to himself.

This is not even remotely close to what you are saying. They have to pray 5 times every day at a certain time.


That is being extremely outwardly religious.

If I follow a religion that says I MUST pee my pants every 5 minutes, I would probably wear diapers and keep it to myself. Prayer should be a private and personal thing. No need to do that shite in the middle of an airport, especially knowing the consequences of it. That guy clearly gives zero fricks about the people around him.

Why should he? Its not his fault people are ignorant and view all Muslims as terrorists.

He's an a-hole for being more devoted to his god/religion than the sensitive feelings of Americans.

Way to use a reasonable comparison...

quote:

Prayer should be a private and personal thing.


According to whom? You Muslim?

He's just practicing his freedom of religion. I don't care for people telling me to "have a blessed day", but I don't tell them to shut the frick up either.

We should probably make a law that outlaws this and any other type of religious display in airports.

Of course an exception should be made for people who make the sign of the cross before takeoff. We know that anyone who does that is a solid guy.

I tap the outside of the plane twice then do the sign of the cross. I'm thinking about incorporating something else into my routine.

You should complain to the ACLU about it.

Are you a bad person for being unnerved? No.

Feelings are non-negotiable.

Should you strive to respect your fellow man even though he's different than you? Yes.

Bunch of a-holes in this thread.

My favorite cab driver prays at the proper times (sometimes next to his taxi while waiting for me to exit wherever I am) and I've never had a problem reaching my destination.

No, you're not a bad person. I am very interested in terrorism and Islam, have practiced national security law, and am adamantly in support of the freedom of religious practice. I know Muslims and I know people who practically investigate Muslims for a living.

That said, contrary to popular belief, ignorance isn't the only thing that puts you on edge. Some amount of knowledge may as well, even if you know that statistically your chances of getting caught up in an attack is very remote. The latter part is the portion that makes you different from the ignorant who think all Muslims pose a threat.

And knowing that occasionally some Muslims are a threat doesn't make you racist. FWIW, guy never mentioned the race/ethnicity of the individual in question.

f you see someone bow their head and pray right before they get on the flight, or in their seat but they are white does it make you nervous?


First time I flew on a chopper, guy across the aisle went full prayer and sign of the cross a couple times, kissed the cross he was wearing.

I know people are afraid to fly and I'm not, but yes, that unnerved me a little. Don't know why, guess cause I wasn't sure what to expect

Probably unnerved you because when people around you are especially nervous it carries over to you. Probably not nervous he was going to hijack that shite though.

When I'm around someone who is really nervous for something it makes me think, "Should I be nervous too? Why aren't I?" Next thing I know I'm nervous.
