UPDATE to U.S. AIR Flight 300: “ISLAMOPHOBIA IS A WEAPON OF JIHAD”

21 November 2006: Following the attacks on America on 9/11 by Islamic terrorists, [b]Islamic jihad[/b] has taken on various forms, not the least of which is IDEOLOGICAL JIHAD - a vital tactic of the asymmetrical warfare that is being waged against the United States and all throughout the West.

The response to the perceived threat aboard flight 300 by Muslim leaders is a clear example of the manifestation of ideological jihad, a troubling tactic used by Muslim leaders to shift people’s focus away from the actions of Islamic terrorists and make them fear a lawsuit nearly as much as possible terrorist activity. A working example of this strategy in progress can be seen in the public reaction and comments of those talking about the events that have taken place aboard U.S. Air Flight 300. Mark my words – U.S. Air flight 300 will become a “water shed event” in the history of Islamic Jihad in the United States.

“I never felt bad in my life like that, I never. Six imams. Six leaders in this country. Six scholars in handcuffs. It’s terrible.”  “They took us off the plane, humiliated us in a very disrespectful way,” -Omar Shahin, of Phoenix.

“CAIR will be filing a complaint with relevant authorities in the morning over the treatment of the imams to determine whether the incident was caused by anti-Muslim hysteria by the passengers and/or the airline crew.” Because, unfortunately, this is a growing problem of singling out Muslims or people perceived to be Muslims at airports, and it’s one that we’ve been addressing for some time.” -Ibrihim Hooper (Council on American Islamic Relations).
