Please tell me. What history am I missing?

So when the planes slammed into the towers we saw on the news pictures from Capital cities. Pictures of people dancing in the streets, cheering and burning American flags. It could not be Muslims because they all loved us in the Middle East before we removed Saddam from power. Then they started hating us. So what I think you are saying is that someone who caused a disturbance on a flight and was removed and also all of the Muslims now hating us are all because of Bush???

While I sympathize with Mr Adams and do agree it is an unfortunate event. The thought of some one using the toilet before flight for a long period of time would raise suspicions by any crew any where regardless of what race/religion the 'toilet user' is. As some one mentioned above, why not use the terminal.

As I said, I do sympathise with him as I presume he felt a little sick. However, the crew did what they thought was in the best interest of the a/c and all on board.

Besides, if the plane was taxying at the time, I can clearly see why he would have been tought of as a threat. If he remained in the loo, it MAY have came across to some as an act of 'defiance' against the crew for not being seated and strapped for T/O

Actually I was in the business, for quite sometime, also spent many years of my youth dodging IRA bombs in the middle of England so I'm quite familiar. Though I hear you in your concern (and deeply appreciate) for your passengers there's something wrong with the hysteria that is rampant. It reminds me of WWII when Japanese Americans were put into camps because they were Japanese Americans. A big mistake then too.

For the record I"m quite a hawk and think we should have stayed in Afghanistan rather than go to Iraq where there were no terrorists, just a lousy regime. If we can't begin to differentiate between people than I'm afraid we're sunk as a nation. To sacrifice civil liberties from fear = terrorists winning.

"Mr Adam, dressed in religious attire, had planned to read religious texts on the flight and had gone to the toilet to perform ritual ablutions before takeoff. He spent about 10 minutes in the toilet. "

Ritual ablutions in the toilet is like eating kosher pig. There is no such a thing. You can perform "dry" ablutions when it is not practical to wash or have practical access to water in an acceptable place. One has to wonder about the real purpose of these incidents, and why all of a sudden we have all these "smart" religious leaders in the media. What's a muslim religious leader anyway?

And if the crew is always right, were they right in the the old days, not so long ago, when (flamboyant) males were sometimes kicked off planes because they "might" have AIDS?

First off, I didn't say the crew is always right. I simply said that, in the airplane, while airborne or getting ready to get airborne, you CANNOT SECOND GUESS THE CREW. The captain and the captain representatives (rest of the crew) are SUPREME AUTHORITIES. It is NOT A DEMOCRACY ON AN AIRPLANE. The crew call the shots period.

Now after every one is off the plane and safely on the ground, go ahead. Question the crew, find them right or wrong, charge them, fire them, arrest them.

While on the plane in flight or getting ready for flight, shut up follow the crew and get out. Simple as that.

I'm not aware of what you speak off regarding gays and AIDS, but even in this case YES. If the crew thinks you are sick and can make other passengers sick, that is all it takes you are out. Period.

You don't seem to understand that while on a plane the crew has supreme decision making and does not have to explain themselves to anyone.

Don't like it, then find a country, airlines that lets passengers make flight decisions by debating and discussing it amongst themselves and then telling the crew what to do.

That is not my understanding. A restroom is not considered clean for ablutions, and that is the reason why the actual toilet is separate from the rest of the bathroom in middle eastern homes.

I like most Americans still feel an incredible anger towards terrorists (was just 5 years ago that terrorists attacked based on radical religeous beliefs and killed 10,000 innocent people) sad as it may be the majority of terrorists are muslim. Most terrorist threats come from muslim background and are directed towards countries with freedom (watch the news). The crew did nothing wrong, (no good deed goes Unpunished) think what would have been said had something happened with knowledge that it could have been prevented. The person who lost a friend in the wtc, what a cop out-others lost wifes, husbands, mothers, children, etc. don' t try to make an equation to add merit to your argument; it's not fair.

Under the leadership of this adminsitration, more innocent people have died in the middle east, than died here on 9/11. But we dont pay as much attention to that because it isnt on our door step.

With all due respect Jacobin777, you are often a voice of moderation or reason here.
Often, sadly after some tragic event, Muslim clerics and community leaders appear in the media and condemn these acts and protest solemnly that Islam is a religion of peace and love. Frankly it isn't us that need to be told, it is the small minority that commit these outrages. The sooner the Muslim majority come out from whatever it is they are hiding behind and make it absolutely clear to these evil little pieces of pig offal that their acts are totally unacceptable the sooner the world will be a better place.

The one thing I don't understand is these terrorists kill and maim more Muslims than "infidels" yet the community will not take the actions that can stop it.

If this incident happened in the US, we would see a bunch of posts from non-Americans telling us how ignorant, paranoid, and racist we are, as we saw in the MSP Imam threads.

Quite the double standard in the A.net community.

Since I think you were referring to me I'll respond. A best friends brother died, another good friend's Mother died and a two very dear friends were able to escape. I too escaped being 6 blocks from the WTC but ran as they collapsed, the cloud ending 2 blocks from me. I'm not using that as a cop-out but to juxtapose that someone who first hand was there and went through it and supports people who did lose family and as I said is hawkish at attacking terrorists can maintain a balanced perspective.

What frightens me are those that have lost ability to think clearly from the fear that terrorism brings. What I attempted to bring to the dialogue is a rational view. ACLU? Hardly.

McVeigh was a right wing racist supremist, not very different from the Muslim fascists to which you refer. The color may change but the craziness is the same, which is the point.

How come the NZ HR commission is not Investigating the abuses against all of the Indigenous populations in South America???

Just to make sure ... you know that NZ is in the Pacific rim right and not in South America? Anyways, NO country is perfect and EVERY country has skeletons in its closet. You have to praise countries being proactive in handling situations. NZ has had "issues" with its indigenous population. However, it has done far more strides than many other countries out there.

And as a PS, by "larger country up north", I meant Australia. NZ is MILES ahead than its larger neighbor in being proactively dealing with social inequity, xenophobia, racism, etc. and I for one think the country should be patted on its back for it.

Nonsense. Racial profiling is racism.

Racism is the belief that one race is superior to all others races.

I dont see how removing someone from an aircraft for not following the rules has anything to do with racism or racists. The person being removed may have been of the same race as the person removing him. Before someone uses a word they should at least know the meaning of the word.

Care to point out the bigotry in my remarks. I don't know what happened in that flight - there is not enough info in the article. My point is simply to defend the right and duty of the crew to act, according to their judgement, in the interest of air safety.

If a red neck chewing tobaco makes them uncomfortable - boom - he is out.

If a girl dressed in very short miniskirt is walking up and down the aisle arousing spring breakers and the crew feels uncomfortable - boon she is out.

If a well dressed and educated Irish doctor is drunk and the crew feels uncomfortable - boon he is out.

If someone gets a big stack of books and locks himself into the bathroom with sounds inconsistent with normal bathroom use and that makes the crew uncomfortable - boom he is out.

Once xxxx is out of the plane, then you can do whatever you wand. Call the ACLU, the human rights division, the police, your lawyer, investigate, indicte the crew, fire them, send them for remedial/sensitivity training, whatever.

But the crew's judgement is just that - it is their call. That is may only point.

It doesn't matter if the crew was justified in feeling uncomfortable flying with this man. What matters is that they felt uncomfortable and acted. That I will always defend. Even if one day it gets me thrown out of the plane.

I think a locked door in a bathroom is as private as one can be on an aircraft.

Well it used to be but I might have news for you. On a recent flight from Syd to a nearby Islamic country, I was rudely disturbed by the crew after about (I would think) 5 minutes from the location you think is private. I don't think I fit the profile, we I do have a beard, but trimmed and I have never particularly thought that the dunnies on QF are places I would like to linger longer than necessary!

My Mistake. I thought by an earlier post that it was Freedom Air that flys Delta Express here in Orlando. They also mentioned him not having a passport. But it does not matter what country you are in,. The crew made the right decision. It does not matter what a person is ethnicly. Rules are rules and they can be subjective. If they kick off a drunk is that profiling against alchoholics? Alot of people are kicked off flights everyday. But if they are "ethnic" then everyone invovled are assumed to be racists. The fact that the press puts this garbage in the news is even worse and causes even more division.

If they are are in a Christian country they should respect that and integrate whilst also being able to reasonably practice their own faith. My fathers family are immigrants and they integrated. If you dont like it then go to the nearest airport and go home!!! The race/religious victim card is used far too much these days.

That is not my understanding. A restroom is not considered clean for ablutions, and that is the reason why the actual toilet is separate from the rest of the bathroom in middle eastern homes.

Ok.now I see the point where you are coming from.. checkmark ..

The toilet is separate from the abulation room if there is enough possible room/space for it (as what one sees in many middle eastern/asian homes as well as mosques) ..its done more so just because its possible to do so...but if that is not possible (such as in an apartment, very small home, airplane, etc.) then its fine to have do abulations in the sink which is part of the restroom...

There is actually no religious edict which states the abulation room must be separate from the restroom.

I hope that clears things up for you... Smile

Quoting StealthZ (Reply 73):

Likely would not have been a problem on Freedom if he had chosen a more appropriate time to do it, try taking your ablutions while EK are attempting to taxi or take off and see if it is "no problem"

StealthZ, with respect, it did say the plane was on the ground..maybe it hadn't departed anywhere yet..and again, the fact NZ didn't aggresively defent this might have meant they indeed made a error..which I said earlier, is fine...as they realised their mistakes and took steps to rectify it...

Often, sadly after some tragic event, Muslim clerics and community leaders appear in the media and condemn these acts and protest solemnly that Islam is a religion of peace and love.

The sooner the Muslim majority come out from whatever it is they are hiding behind and make it absolutely clear to these evil little pieces of pig offal that their acts are totally unacceptable the sooner the world will be a better place.

As much as we try (and its not just the media, but also during Friday services every week)...some people just will not listen..

There is no reason any airline or airport need make any changes in their operating process. If you [a pax] look nervous, make potentially damning statememnts, or cause those around you to crank up the swet pumps, then you should be politely detained and questioned. Yup it sounds a bit like Big Brother, but given the craziness today, I don't see the world's air travelers rising up and condemming the practice.

Note to self:Expect to be stopped by security if you stand out from the crowd. Self expression is not cool at the world's airports. It's called undress to fly. I recently was on a DTL flight from BOS to ATL and a very stoned and obviously gay {the gay statement is germaine to this} pax came aboard and called his row mates some colorful names and promptly threw up into the seat back. He then announced he had AIDs and needed peace and quiet. A lot of hands reached for the call button at that point. As well as a lot of air sick bags. He took one and let go with another very smelly stream and when the head stew asked him if he was in need of medical help he held up the bag and threatened to infect us all. Well that was all the stew needed to hear, and then the FO and a very big State Trooper (the v-shaped kind who's hat was two sizes too small for his squash) came down the isle and not to gently escorted the lad off the AC. He, as he left, shouted out all kinds of remarks. The middle part of the AC erupted into applause and the flight crew began the cleaning process of the seat. The other two in the row were offered a different flight, but they stayed. We missed out slot by 45 minutes. But the crew acted responsibly. Moral? Don't be an a-hole.

Now you PC'ers out there wil write he should have been given a hug and a glass of milk to settle down, while those around him suffered with his ranks and retches and his stink. It was written earlier in this thread, that flying is a privlidge . We conform to the Airline's rules and regs as well as those of the govt' and not the other way around. The liberal viewpoints and actions are getting way out of hand. It's like the sexual harrassement boom in the 80's and look what that did to the workplace....
