-Napolitano May Exempt Muslim Women From Airport Pat-Downs?

On Monday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was asked by reporters whether Muslim women wearing hijabs would be subjected to the new full body scans and pat downs before boarding planes.

‘Big Sis’ was noncommittal at the time and indicated that the TSA would be making “adjustments” and that there would be “more to come” on the issue.

Now it seems that Homeland Security is genuinely considering giving Muslim women a pass when it comes to the new measures. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) complained to the government that intrusive full-body scans and pat downs were contrary to their religious sensibilities and Muslim women should not be subjected to these new measures. The Muslim organization is asking the government to allow Muslim women to pat themselves down as an alternative.

Meanwhile CAIR is  advising Muslim women wearing religious head covers known as hijabs to reject full-body checks before boarding planes and to demand to see supervisors if required by TSA agents to comply.

Response: You have got to be kidding! This is taking ‘political correctness’ about as far as it can go.

All Americans are now being subjected to intrusive inspections before boarding planes because some radical Muslims crashed planes on 9/11. But now Muslim women should get a pass while everyone must go through it all? This makes no sense. Plus it is down right discrimination against women of other religions or no religion at all.

If this happens, then all al Qaeda will need to do is recruit Muslim women wearing hijabs in the future.  In fact they are already using young women as suicide bombers in Iraq and Palestine.

Why not follow the procedures of the one airline that never has any incidents of terrorism- The Israelis. They have sophisticated profiling procedures that only affect those who might actually be terrorist threats- not 80 year-old America women or 3 year-old girls. Believe me on El Al Airlines Muslim women would never get a pass.            *Top of the Blog
