Debbie Schlussel: Showing Up @ the Airport Way Too Late While Muslim
So, you’re flying back to the United States from Germany. You are late for your flight . . . way too late.
Even though for international flights you are required to check in at least an hour before the scheduled take-off time and board the flight a half hour before the flight, you arrive for the flight 20 minutes before take-off. The airline does not allow you on board and, maybe even makes you pay to get on the next flight because it’s overbooked. Since it’s the last flight out, your tardiness also costs you the expense of a night at a hotel.
What do you do?
If you’re like everyone else, you quietly chastise yourself for being late and kick yourself for the hassle and extra money your own lack of time-budgeting cost you. You knew the rules, and you blew it.
Leaders of Threatened Muslim Northwest Airlines Boycott:Hassan Qazwini (w/ Hezbollah Spiritual Leader/Specially Designated Terrorist Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah), Najah BazzyBut if you’re an American Muslim, you raise holy hell, scream and yell about bigotry, Islamophobia, “flying while Muslim,” etc., etc., etc. ad nauseam. And nausea. And you threaten to boycott the airline. Rules? Who cares about the rules? Hijackers? Security needs? Why is that my concern? The people who did that hijacked my religion, and I’m entitled to a giant chip on my shoulder and tons of privileges and special treatment because of it.
That’s what started yesterday, with press conferences on TV all over Detroit held by Hezbollah-supporting, Shi’ite Imam Hassan Qazwini, head of the Islamic Center of America, North America’s largest mosque. I’ve written about Qazwini, since 1998, when I went undercover to his mosque and watched Qazwini and his congregants vehemently cheer on Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic tirades and calls for a jihad on America’s Jews. I wrote about this in The Detroit Newsistan, before it became Islamist-occupied territory.
His friend, Hezbollah spiritual leader and Specially Designated Global Terrorist, Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, is the man who gave the fatwa (religious decree) okaying the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983, murdering over 241 Americans.
I’ve also written about his congregants, like Najah Bazzy, a nurse who proudly proclaimed in 2004, “I’m embarrassed to be American,” and provided an anti-Israel exhibit to the Arab American National Museum. She is also suspected of helping pregnant Muslim foreigners who defraud Medicaid, getting U.S. taxpayers to cover the costs of hospital delivery of their children (and automatic U.S. citizenship for these Islamist anchor babies).
These are the kinds of people the rules for early arrival for flights were made for, NOT the people for whom the rules should be especially bent.
Ms. Bazzy and Mr. Qazwini led yesterday’s whining, hysterical multiple-press conferences threatening a Muslim boycott of Northwest. Believe me, I’d love to boycott Northwest, too. Not because of this, but because the airline stinks and has total contempt for its non-whining–read, non-Muslim–customers. But, if you are in the Detroit area, you simply don’t have a choice. Northwest runs most of the flights, unless you want to be flying all day, connecting everywhere, to travel 500 miles.
Official Dhimmi AircraftI doubt a Muslim boycott will really take place, based on that logistic fact. But what I know will happen is tons of capitulation by Northwest Airlines. That’s what they do. The airline annually donates tons of free tickets to extremist pro-terror groups, like the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, flying people like “former” terrorist Imad Hamad all over the country for free. Well, actually not for free. You are making up the difference in your ticket price. Northwest even paid for ADC’s interns to travel cross-country.
Northwest gives in any time ADC or CAIR or any pan-Islamist group gets a paper-cut or lets out a whisper. Muslim Northwest employees who violated Northwest’s vacation and sick day policy, lying about being sick to go to a wedding were given their jobs back after being fired. Why? Easy. ADC yelled, and whined, and complained. Don’t look for non-Muslim employees to get such flexibility in company policy from Northwest.
But do look for Northwest to give in to the whining “showing up way too late at the Airport while Muslim” Muslims. They’ll get money, free tickets, a well-paid Northwest-wide sensitivity training consulting contract, an apology, and a whole lot of other stuff.
Cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching.
That’s Northwest’s dhimmi track record. And on that, at least, the airline has always been very consistent.
Dhimmi Air flies the not-so-friendly skies.
