TSA Pat-Down Must Be Sharia Compliant

Sun Nov 21, 2010 6:55 pm

Quote:
"......Note to terrorists: Next time, wear a hijab. The Department of Homeland Security reportedly is giving special exemptions to their "enhanced pat-down" policy to Muslim women wearing the hijab or other form-concealing garments.

Last week, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a "travel advisory" noting that women who are patted down "should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat-down." It's unclear why CAIR believes TSA frisking must be Shariah-compliant."
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...ov/17/terrorists-hiding-in-hijabs/

Simply unbelieveable. That members of the group that has caused such a turmoil in air-travel and world security should demand that their Sharia law be respected by TSA and airport security. WOW.... wear a hijab and only get your head and neck patted down...... and let them pat THEMSELVES down for the rest. So let me get this right, 3 year old kids must subject themselves to groping of their genitalia, but women from the demographic that should be searched the most, get a free pass.

Monty Python couldn't have written a better scenario.

So we are not allowed to profile, so we have to invasively search little old blue-haired granny, but we actually do profile for the one religion that has caused this whole mess in order to EXEMPT them from such searches.

Makes perfect sense to me...

I've got a fully Sharia Compliant policy to propose to the TSA:

All hijab wearing women go permanently on the no-fly list. This will avoid any risk of inappropriate patting down and is the safest way to avoid an y Sharia infringements.
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

A lot of people fought and died for the idea that all people in the USA are protected under the same law and those laws apply to all people. The entire civil rights movement was about equality and equal protection under the law. How any group of people can expect a different set of laws to apply to them in the this country is beyond belief.

So it is not ok to grab around on a Muslim woman, but it is ok to grab around on other women? This country has got to stop being affraid of law suits and the terrorists themselves. This entire thing got started because if Islamic facists who hate everyone, even many of their fellow Muslims. Spare me the Tim McVeigh wasn't a Muslim story because a lot of changed in the last 15 years and even if you throw that in it has nothing to do with air travel. This country has shown it is affraid of these people because it will bend to their every request, to the point where they can demand laws be bent for their beliefs, while the rest of us have to follow. What if I want to be protected under Sharia law? I guess I am not eligable because I am an Episcopalian. So much for equal rights for everyone.

This past summer I was boarding a flight at AMS to MAN and there was a woman in line who was completely covered, not even her eyes were showing. I assume it was a woman.... The agent looked at "her" ID and she proceeded to board. Never having seen a face there was not way of knowing if that woman was really a woman or was the person who's ID it was. I thought to myslef, "what a great way to smuggle somebody in or out of a country, who was from the law, Muslim or otherwise.

In case the TSA decides to apply this rule

I should go to an islamic clothing store and buy me a full covering dress complete with a hijab before I have to go through US airports? Religion is not indicated in passports. I would not have to submit to full body touching from head to toes?

hmmm... mabye all of us women flyers should get islamic attire and change clothes before we pass through US airports security check poiints.

It's tempting... really!

I am talking seriously. If there is no full touching for these women, then I will wear a full Islamic costume to wear for going through the US security check points. They won't even see my eyes. LOL
If the TSA woman says I don't look like the one on my passport picture I will just tell her I recently converted.
The sales ladies in the store will be more than happy to show me how to put it on. I will be a big success. Only I will not let them know why I am buying the outfit.

I am serious, too. This surveillance-insanity has gotten out of control. If this is a way of avoiding the worst, then people should do it. Imagine an airport in the US where every woman lines up for security wearing those clothes.

Either will this "loophole" be closed or security will move back in the direction of sanity.

This is how they are slowly breaking. They're realizing that the average American will not stand to be sexually abused just to board a plane. First they gave up on molesting pilots, and now they're making an exception on getting to 2nd base with Muslim women. They are doing this to be political correct, but I feel they will soon have to give up this whole patting down/taking naked pictures nonsense.

Opt out, each time, every time!

Next will be Hasidic/Orthodox Jews asking for exemption, then Mormons, then other religoius Christiians. That will just mean eventually only Wicca and athiests will have to go through this invasive procedure. Then the TSA will realilze that their procedures were horribly conceived and then find some other way to make us unconfortable yet not catch any potential terrorists.

So that people can make an informed judgment here is a link to the travel advisory referred to in the Washington Times:
http://www.cair.com/ArticleDetails.a...rticleID=26681&&name=n&&currPage=1

It does not call for the introduction of Sharia Law but offers the following general advice:
Quote:
* If you opt out of the full-image body scanner, you have the right to request that the manual search be conducted in private.
*It is your right to be screened by an officer of the same gender. The TSA states in its Head-to-Toe Screening Policies: "It is TSA's policy that passengers should be screened by an officer of the same gender in a professional, respectful manner."
*If you experience any disturbing incidents with the new pat down procedure, particularly if you feel you have been subjected to religious or racial profiling, harassment or unfair treatment, immediately file a complaint with the TSA



And for those wearing the hijab:

Quote:
*If you are selected for secondary screening after you go through the metal detector and it does not go off, and "sss" is not written on your boarding pass, ask the TSA officer if the reason you are being selected is because of your head scarf.
*In this situation, you may be asked to submit to a pat-down or to go through a full body scanner. If you are selected for the scanner, you may ask to go through a pat-down instead.
*Before you are patted down, you should remind the TSA officer that they are only supposed to pat down the area in question, in this scenario, your head and neck. They SHOULD NOT subject you to a full-body or partial-body pat-down.
*You may ask to be taken to a private room for the pat-down procedure.
*Instead of the pat-down, you can always request to pat down your own scarf, including head and neck area, and have the officers perform a chemical swipe of your hands.
*If you encounter any issues, ask to speak to a supervisor immediately. They are there to assist you


This is hardly radical stuff.

Not really. Their belief is that they shouldn't have their junk fondled by a (wo)man in a uniform just because they want to get on a plane.

Earlier this year I was in an Airport in Moscow, the immigration person refused to allow the muslim women in the burka thru until she had completely removed her head covering to check her ID, it led to a fairly big argument with the women male escort but she immigration official won, it was interesting seeing the burka coming off, a lot of people were watching.

Personally I think the burka or any other item of clothing that covers the face should not be allowed anywhere near an airport; flying sucks because of muslims so they should be made to suffer with the rest of us.

As much as I don't want to go out on a limb and say that Muslims should be searched more, it's true, and this idea of not searching Muslims because of their religion is just absurd. So, should we all wear turbans and burqas while traveling, just to make airport security a little easier? I personally believe that the POTUS as well as the Executive of the TSA needs to come together and have a board review of these pat down processes, and make a completely new system. It's only gonna get worse.

So is the idea of searching them more.

You don't get an irrevocable tattoo that states that you're a Muslim. It's impossible to tell who really is and who isn't. So if you start using "muslim" as the profile, then terrorists will just do whatever is necessary to "not look Muslim."

Israel uses BEHAVIORAL profiling. A guard looks you right in the eyes and says: "How are you today? Where are you going? How long have you been here/how long will you be there? Why are you going? Who are you going with?" They're highly trained, unlike TSA folks, to identify behaviors that indicate that someone might be up to no good. Those people get more intense screening. And --here's the best part-- they aren't interested in the pie you have for Aunt Gertie or the bottle of chocolate sauce you're bringing your secretary from Ghiradelli Square. I've heard tell they're not even interested in the joint you hid in your underwear. They're interested in whether you are planning on hijacking/blowing up the plane.

It's a lot easier on everyone and more effective.

Quoting KiwiRob (Reply 36):
flying sucks because of muslims so they should be made to suffer with the rest of us.


Perhaps that could be rewritten to "because of some muslims".

I have travelled extensively in North Africa and the Middle East and you know what? All the people on those flights just wanted to get from where they boarded to where they were going. They were travelling on business or to visit family. A lot were itinerant workers. There is no evidence to suggest that any of them were planning to bring a plane down. I suspect the same is true of the overwhelming majority of Muslims living in or travelling to/ through the US.

Besides, can anyone without experience, at a glance, tell apart a Muslim from a Coptic Christian male from Egypt? Or a member of the different communities in Lebanon. Or a Moroccan Christian, Moroccan Jew or Moroccan Muslim - at a glance they look remarkably similar. Similar features, similar dress. So people could be quaking in the pants for no reason whatever, other than the complexion of a person's skin.

they are using a US Congressional seat to do harm to our freedoms then yes, I DO consider these two men to be thugs.

Still going to keep pushing back Fly. I said it in my last reply, and you didn't answer my questions. The onus is still on you as you've made these two claims and the two you made that I questioned before.

(1) Why should I be "scared" of them?
(2) What makes them "thugs"?
(3) How are they trying to "undo our freedom"?
(4) How are they trying to undo "what America stands for"?
(5) How are they using their Congressional seats to harm our freedoms?

If you're going to throw these accusations out there then you need to back them up. And not just in vague platitudes either.

This is hardly radical stuff.

You know, you'd think in this day and age people would automatically assume a story as stupid and fake as this one wouldn't be supped up by the populace. But alas, it feeds the racists and the ignorant as urban legends always have. The Washington TImes is just another mouthpiece for the wingnut agenda. But hey, nothing changes. Keep the populace stupid and distracted while the powers that be rape the country, and steal off with the family jewels. Funny how Republicans are now all up in arms over this when they were the party that created the impotent, ineffectual, incompetent, TSA in the first place. Typical.

Quoting photopilot (Thread starter):

Simply unbelieveable. That members of the group that has caused such a turmoil in air-travel and world security should demand that their Sharia law be respected by TSA and airport security. WOW.... wear a hijab and only get your head and neck patted down...... and let them pat THEMSELVES down for the rest. So let me get this right, 3 year old kids must subject themselves to groping of their genitalia, but women from the demographic that should be searched the most, get a free pass.

Wonderful! Political Correctness in it's best!

O.k., I'll go with this as long as they respect the rest of Sharia Law. That means if one of the woman passengers gets caught conversing with an unrelated male passenger at her gate, than TSA will take her out on the ramp for a stoning or public whipping? If a flamboyant homosexual comes skipping through the gate, then they take them out and hang them with a construction crane in front of the other passengers. And, if one of the Muslim passengers gets caught stealing a pack of gum at the airport newspaper stand, than they immediately have a hand chopped off with a machete. Somehow I doubt we'll see these other aspects of Sharia law respected, though, and it will be selectively used at the security screening?

Quoting photopilot (Thread starter):
Monty Python couldn't have written a better scenario.

When I first read this, I thought of the scene in Airplane 1 (Or two?) when an army of terrorists comes tromping through the medal detector with fully automatic machine guns and rockets launchers and they get waved right through. Then the elderly woman comes through, and she's thrown up against the wall with a gun to her head by the security guys, while another ones pats her down!

I don't expect you to read or agree with my links because of course CNN, ABC, NBC and NPR won't touch this topic but these stories have direct quotes from Senators Charles Schumer and Richard Durbin who are also suspicious of CAIR.

OK, the TSA truely should be done away with having seen that! They are doing anything BUT what they're supposed to be doing to keep our country safe! Both my wife and I think they should adopt what Israel is doing, but NOOOO, the liberals cannot have that happen now can they?!

This country has gone to hell. Seriously, where are Ben Franklin, John Adams, George Washington, John Hancock et al. to set this country straight again?!

They didn't have to deal with Islamic terrorist.
We will never see men of that caliber in politics again because we have a media that prys in to people's personal lives too much. For what ever reason, it's ok to belong to a radical religion or church but gawd forbid a man is a playboy, smokes pot, drinks or is a gambler!

That's what happens when people embrace being progressive so that society can "evolve". Things progress and evolve into a complete joke. And after a few decades, the country isn't anything like what the founders ever imagined! Isn't liberalism wonderful? Can't wait to see what America is like in another 30 years? Hopefully I'll be near death by then?

Can't have any mention of God in our society, or hold onto or our traditional Jewdeau-Christian influenced culture because it might offend atheists and other religious minorities. Terms like Merry Christmas and Christmas Tree goes out the window being replaced by "Happy Holidays" and "Holiday Tree" Any reference to God in schools is thrown out, but Musilm students get their own prayer rooms. And now we're going to bend over backwards to accommodate sharia law? Ludicrous!

Actually we Atheist aren't offended by Christmas at all. In fact, the Buddhist and Hindus aren't offended either. That is all a big lie cooked up by a small group of lawyers.
There is only one 'religious' group that gets offended and set off bombs when they don't get their way.

The latest issue of FLYING TYPERS, an internet newsletter for the air cargo industry just received 1 hour ago this morning has an interesting story about a Senate hearing on air cargo security.

Monthy Python live indeed starring clueless Senators and equally clueless DSH officials.

The essensce brought into just 3 words, pinpointing and fitting this thread like tight gloves.
