Syrian musicians. The woman thinks they are behaving suspiciously and
thinks she has landed in the middle of a terrorist plot.
Fourteen dark-skinned men from Syria board Northwest's
flight 327, seated in two separate groups. Some are carrying oddly
shaped bags and wearing track suits with Arabic script across the back.
During the flight the men socialize, gesture to one another, move about
the cabin with pieces of their luggage, and, most ominous of all,
repeatedly make trips to the bathroom. The author links the men's
apparently irritable bladders to a report published in the Observer
(U.K.) warning of terrorist plots to smuggle bomb components onto
airplanes one piece at a time, to be secretly assembled in
Of course nothing happens but after the flight, the woman is still
convinced she witnessed a Dry-run, a practice session for the next
terrorist attack. I am not even going to link to the story, it has been
going around the Blog-world for days now.
I would personally feel slightly uncomfortable being on a plane with a
large group of Arab young men. Totally politically incorrect but I would
be lying if I said I would not notice them.
However, the fear would subside as soon as the plane lands safely....but
this woman's belief only grew stronger the more she thought about what
she had witnessed: Arab men on a plane, talking to each other, walking
around the plane and *gasp* having a pee!!!
She then went on to write a second article, saying she is getting more
and more sure she witnessed terrorists in practice. And because most
Americans are totally stupid it seems, more and more people believe her
story. A typical example of Scream loud enough and people will start to
think you are telling the truth.
Arabs on a plane = terrorists. No wonder Arabs think the whole world,
and in particular Americans, hates them. This is the most racist and
disgusting thing I have hear din a long long time. People in America are
now calling for RACIAL PROFILING at airports.
Yeah, why not simply ban all planes from the Arab world? Oh no, can not
do that. Most of Bush' business partners would no longer be allowed into
the country if they did that.
