When Fear Meets Bigotry
Yeah, yeah be vigilant and aware about your surroundings. But this is pretty annoying/disgusting. Sounds like what happens when a right-wing mentality takes over the world. Fyling while muslim-looking now qualifies as suspicious behavior, and when fellow travelers complain you can be ousted from your flight and held for hours.(Via Kos)
A spokesman for Monarch Airlines said: "There were two passengers on the flight who came to the attention of the other people because they were apparently acting suspiciously.

"The flight attendants were sufficiently concerned to alert the crew who in turn informed the security authorities at Malaga airport."

No details of their "suspicious" behaviour were revealed.

The Conservative homeland security spokesman, Patrick Mercer, described the incident as "a victory for terrorists".

"These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally," he told the Mail on Sunday.

"For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense."
This is the world of Bush and Cheney.
