US Airways should say no to pressure from flying imams

The imams who intimidated passengers at Minneapolis' airport have been trying - get this - to reach an out of court settlement with US Airways over their removal, which was doubtless what they were hoping for so they could then play victim. Debbie Schlussel has some contact info for the company, and I too would strongly recommend calling to tell them not to give in to those villains. It was all a setup, intended to try and lead to weakening airline security, and it's imams themselves who owe some money in fines to the airport for disturbing the peace. Another contact link can be found here.

The Wash. Times reports:
A group of Muslim imams is seeking an out-of-court settlement with US Airways, saying they should not have been removed from a Minnesota-to-Phoenix flight last month and were not behaving suspiciously.

Five of the six Islamic religious leaders have retained the Council on American-Islamic Relations for legal representation and are seeking a "mutually agreeable" resolution, said Nihad Awad, CAIR executive director.

US Airways scheduled a meeting with the imams on Dec. 4 to discuss the incident, but the men canceled it and hired the activist group to act as legal counsel.

"With the hopes of reaching an amicable resolution to this matter, we would like to take this opportunity to ask for a formal meeting with US Airways executives and legal counsel," said Arsalan Iftikhar, CAIR's national legal director, in a letter to the airline. The imams represented by CAIR include Omar Shahin, Didmar Faja, Ahmad Shqeirat, Marwan Sadeddin and Mohamed Ibrahim.
Clearly, this is greivance-mongering on their part, as they lie and pretend they didn't act suspiciously. And you can be sure they they've got quite a lot of contempt for the passengers as well, not willing to accept the passengers' standing up to them as well through their support for the authorities removing the bozos from the plane.

Another reason why these imams cannot be allowed to have their way is because of cave-ins that took place previously. Read this item here (via Michelle Malkin) on how, thanks to government bureaucrats who were willing to support them, including the Dept. of Transportation, grievance-mongers prior to this won money settlements over supposed discrimination from American Airlines and Continental. This sort of kowtowing has to cease. Especially considering that the imams have a lot more terror ties than previously reported, as Katherine Kersten at the Star Tribune discovers. Read it all to know just what kind of things they were doing. Update: here's another column by Kersten in which she figures that the imams' stunt was a ploy to get an anti-profiling bill passed. Makes sense.

Richard Minitier at the NY Post (via Betsy's Page) has more.
