Toronto Muslims Held At U.S. Airport For 16 Hours

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Two Islamic leaders from Toronto were denied entry into the United States today after being detained for 16 hours at a Florida airport by U.S. government agents who told them they picked the wrong day — Sept. 11 — to fly, an Islamic civil rights group said.

Ahmed Kutty, 59, and Sheik Abdul Hamid, 37, were detained this afternoon at the Broward County Jail, said Altaf Ali, executive director of the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

They were denied entry into the United States and were booked for a late afternoon flight back to Toronto, Ali said.

"I'm totally flabbergasted," Ali said.

"I've heard some crazy things in the past about people being detained but this beats them all."

FBI agents interviewed the men yesterday at the request of U.S. Customs officials but did not charge them with any crime or order them to remain detained, said spokeswoman Judy Orihuela.

U.S. customs and immigration officials did not immediately return phone messages today seeking information on who ordered them back to Canada.

The imams were flying through Fort Lauderdale yesterday to Orlando, where they planned to raise money for an Islamic school in Canada, Ali said.

They were stopped and searched at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and agents found a business card for an Islamic organization on one of the men, Ali said.

"One of the agents told them: 'You guys have picked the wrong time to fly,'" Ali said.

One of the agents told the imams the U.S. government had reason to believe the organization on the business card was tied to terrorism. The organization was not immediately identified.

The men were held at the airport from 9:30 a.m. yesterday until 1:30 a.m. today, Ali said.

"Someone can be detained and locked up for several hours just because of a business card — that is so un-American," Ali said.


I was told if I didn't have anything nice to say, not to say it. I'm going to keep my mouth shut on this.

You're right. The U.S. shouldn't investigate people entering the country, and shouldn't deny them entry, especially if they're muslim.

I guess the Canadians were out of line when they held me up at the Windsor border crossing for an hour when I was 8....

I see the sarcasm in this part. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that you are saying that they should ESPECIALLY investigate persons who are Muslim or of Islamic origin. Please do explain.

Give me a whole story such as the above, about your incident with the Canadian customs officers, and then I'll tell you if they were out of line or not.

Also, age means nothing. Just because you were 8 doesn't mean you are harmless. Do you remember the incident when the airport security found a gun, or knife (can't remember which exactly) in a child's teddy bear?

I agree. If North American Muslims are upset at the addl security being leveled at them, perhaps it could have been prevented had the 19 9-11 murderers not been aided and abeted by segments of the North American Muslim communities. What goes around comes around.

If any of those individuals had aided and abetted, I'm fairly sure that they'd either be in hiding, or in Guantanamo Bay, by now.

Or do you think that entire religious communities should take the blame for the acts of a few maniacs?

They are guilty by association if they don't speak up against the perpetrators. Silence means tacit support of terrorism.

EmiratesA345: You correctly detected sarcasm in that statement. I guess the problem with sarcasm is that although you make it understood that you disagree witht he point being made, you don't really make your own point clear. I believe that people should be interrogated (heh) equally upon entering the country, and that even if a white baptist dude is found with documents indicating a connection with a possible terrorist organization (charity, militant group, etc.) that he be treated like these people.

"Securing" the borders isn't a cure-all for possible terror plots, but it still is a measure that can be taken.

And on that canada incident... evidently at the time there was a rash of kidnappings in the Windsor area. Kids didn't need an ID to go back and forth, and I express the darker italian side of the family more than anyone else (read: I don't look like them from far away). Unfortunately, i had also learned the "don't talk to strangers" lesson from sesame street, or captain kangaroo... I didn't answer the border guard's questions of "are these your parents?". Hey, they acted accordingly too!

So, YyZ717, you feel that we should detain all American presbyterians at our borders because they may be coming here to kill the medical staff of abortion clinics, unless they can demonstrate that they spoke up against such actions in the United States?

If you do not agree with this proposition I would like to understand the difference between doing that and detaining any Muslim.

If an "Al Qaeda" business card was found with my name on it, shouldn't I expect the authorities to wonder why?

I'm sorry, but I for one am not feeling sorry for those Muslims that were held in Ft. Lauderdale.

It makes FAR more sense than searching and detaining Grandma. I never heard of 80 year old American ladies flying planes into buildings and Ali is probably making half of that up like what the agent said to get a lawsuit out of it.

Its reality, you gotta expect it now. He could have driven or taken a bus. There were warnings going around about attacks on the Anniversary of Sept 11, of course people are going to look twice at Muslims or those of Middle Eastern appearance, hell even dark skin. I get wierd looks occassionally when I fly a plane because I am dark skinned too.

Therein lies the problem. We now live in a paranoid world. That is the triumph of September 11th, even if Al Quaiada never do another thing.

No, I don't really blame the United States, but I have stopped taking on American contracts. Not because I'm scared of terrorist attacks (I still work in Asia without thinking about it), but because I can't stand the hassle of entering or being in the USA with a foreign passport. Being involved in a terrorist incident is still 1 in a billion odds, but encountering an obnoxious security situation is a guaranteed daily experience for the foreign business traveller in North America

Most Americans don't know where my country is, so they place it in the Middle East by default, just to be on the safe side. So in North America I find myself becoming paranoid about their paranoia ("Searched 6 times out of 7 boarding domestic flights. It must be because I'm foreign.").

Yet I never felt like that about doing business in the UK when IRA bombiing was at its peak.

By the way, I am white and pale skinned. Never been brown in my life - the sun turns me red. I keep away from it.

Amen! You couldn't have put it better. I relocated my North American operations completely from Atlanta to Toronto last year for that same reason after being hassled by the INS over lawd only knows what. I'm still willing to take on US clients, but only if they are willing to be serviced from Toronto or Vancouver.

Doing business in the US is simply not worth the hassle factor anymore. If and when they decide to make things more conducive, I'll be glad to go back in there but until then Canada will be getting my company's tax dollar.

Sometimes I am ashamed to be an American. Our collective reaction to the awful events of two years ago, in my opinion, is atrocious. Locking up people in Guantánamo Bay for two years, without proper legal recourse, is anti-American and fundamentally wrong.

I don't blame you non-Americans who choose not to enter our country and prefer to ally yourselves with business partners in other nations. It makes complete sense from a convenience standpoint.

A vast minority of Americans have ventured to travel to other parts of the world; yet we want to dictate policy around the globe. Personally, I consider myself a citizen of the world who happens to live in the United States. I continue to hope that someday my fellow countrymen can learn to accept and understand the opinions and realities of people from the rest of the world. In my opinion, that is best accomplished by travelling to and living in other societies throughout our planet we call Earth. Unfortunately, it's rare to find an American who has done so.

no, what they should have done was ram a plane full of these people into their buildings.

I don't blame you non-Americans form entering our borders? Who are you referring to? Everybody enters our borders, Mexican,Muslims,Jewish, who are you referring to?

understand the rest of the world? Oh, but only if you don't lose a family member to an event that WILL change the way we think forever.

wnfan, you are the reason we don't have tighter borders, and people like you are the ones who will always travel abroad and say how anti-American you are.
